    Become a lesbian sex is sex is it not

  • I would not give up something so special. Susan maybe right, but if you have only explored this now, why come out now. I think more time is needed and a lot of the answer will come with that.

    If you love each other then why should others possible opinions break apart what you have. People are going to love people, it's just natural wether or not it's a man loving a woman or man loving man, woman loving man, or woman loving woman. People love people. Gender should not matter to you or anyone else. If you feel you have a connection then go for it! Don't ruin a possibility for the sake of others and their happiness, do it for you! Hope I helped :)

    There are people who come out in their 50's, there's nothing wrong with it. Better coming out than lying to yourself for the rest of your life. If you really feel something for Susan, pursue it. Be happy. Life is too short to worry about whether people will understand or accept you. You don't live your life for them, you live it for yourself and your own way. If she is the one, spend the rest of your life with her.
