One down, two to go.
Told my dad just now. He's one of the most important people in my life.
He didn't run screaming. He didn't disown me. He's ... processing.
He didn't greet this announcement with the same sentiments as my sexuality. (Annoucing he had to go to the "can" after a few minutes of conversation.)
His main concern was for Indigo and me. He doesn't want either of us hurt, or to "lose something special to each other."
He was pretty astute and asked right away if my boyfriend was the guy I game with. Indigo and I don't have many friends outside of our relationship, and most of those are mutual friends. He's called home a few times when I've been out with Mr. A, or texted me.
He's said he doesn't want to meet "anyone else" (be they Indigo's or my SO). I told him plainly that he should think about that carefully because there may be times in our life when he will exclude himself as a consequence. He seemed to take that in. I managed not to be offended, because he hasn't yet grasped the concept that it's about love.
I am ... cautiously optimistic. It's a lot to absorb, and I truly hope he'll come back to me with questions.
