I'm out with my parents and siblings, but that's cheating. They live on the other side of the planet, and to be honest, I don't talk with them so much. Shameful, I know, but it's a habit I've had for a long time. Same with my siblings.

As for my girl's parents, well we came out to them rather recently! She was talking about a Poly Camp that we were going to with her mum before she knew what she was saying, a mental burp on her part that is utterly unprecedented. You can imagine, that phone call went for an hour of questions with awkward answers. Her father was asking questions, too, and the whole time I was at work! Quite the story to come home to. Her parents took it well enough, but what sucks is they asked her not to tell any other family members. Her brother knows, and a close cousin. So, still can't post it on FaceBook! Bummer!!

At work, I'm out, due to an unusual set of events. I was in 'class' [we have regular training as things change at work] and I was chatting with the trainer. Just the trainer, mind, because I knew him well enough. I mentioned I was poly, he asked about it, we quietly talked about it between ourselves. I didn't even realise at all but someone had moved right behind me to listen in. She asked me a few questions, the conversation spread and, well the grapevine took over once training was over.

I was wondering if I would be approached about it afterward, but surprisingly it just became an accepted fact. Weird, huh?

And of course, every friend knows that I'm open, because I oggle at cuties with them, and always complain about looking for a nice girl or a cute guy in this damn town!

All in all I'm pretty lucky in my circumstance.
I have many in my family. And this is good.
I have many friends. And this is good.
I have many teachers. And this is good.

I have many loves. And this is a great concern. The greatest insanities of this world are those stock full in the face of all.
