How can I tell my friends and family I am bi?

I am 23 and bi I have only confided in one person. I am afraid of what my parents will think when I tell them. One of my good friends is a lesbian and she told me to just be open and honest about it. Any ideas on how to approach the subject?

Well what are your parents like? If they're, for example, strictly religious, you'll need to think very carefully about what to say. Perhaps have a friend with you? If they've shown themselves to be pretty easy going, they'll probably accept you anyway.

Just tell them - if you know it would make them feel better asure them you are in a relationship eg. a straight one, and say that you are more on the straight side? But it would be better to be honest - it depends what kind of person they are and how they would take the news

being bi is just in the mind, and by the way some people were raised, but really nobody is gay or bi what you should do is get help about it because you can't just say im not bi,

My advice, as a lesbian with 1.5 feet out of the closet, tell some friends first. Your friends will most likely support you, if they are true friends, and then they can help you with coming out to your parents... More

I personally know a lot of gay and bi ppl. There is a good percentage of young bisexual females that I know that end up in their late 20's or 30's leaving the bisexual lifestyle behind for a variety of reasons. This happens more with the young bisexual community than with the gay community. At 23 yrs old, I would pause... More

You might want to choose a time that's most convenient for them; if something big is going on in their life (a death, break-up, or are just... More
