I would encourage telling an online friend first, to help build up that courage and hopefully they'll be supportive. Telling strangers is usually the easy part (hence you telling us ) But if it's really serious and you see her in your lives forever (like moving-in serious) I'd highly suggest the first "real" person you tell be your son. That way when you tell friends and family, and they all ask the inevitable "what does your son think" or "how will this affect him" questions, you can answer completely and honestly. And I'm sure he'll support you anyway

and just a tad more advice, coworkers are last on the totem pole to know (if they need to know at all). Letting coworkers know too much about your personal life often leads to unnecessary drama.... good luck!! ^_^
