Default I came out to my mom today

And it did not go well at all.

We have yet to find a girlfriend, but I wanted to get it out of the way because she lives with us. So eventually she would see things (she's already seen us cuddling with our friend).

She says she's disgusted by the thought of it, that she doesn't understand it. I told her that there's nothing wrong at all with being poly, and she said that there is.

I also brought up the fact that her best friend is in a lesbian relationship, and her response was "Yes, but it's one on one." So I think she's more thrown by the poly thing than the bi thing.

Still, it's pretty hurtful that she feels this way. It was one of the hardest things I've ever done. She thinks I'm doing it because I'm "too insecure" and that it's all my husband's idea.

Ideally, we need to get our own house. But financially that's still at least several months out.
