At What Age?...

At what age did you realize, or at least suspect, that you were "different" ~ or gay?

Suspect - as far back as I can remember I just knew I were peculiar.

Knew - When after the obligatory birds & bees lecture series with my mother; I announced, with complete naivete and innocence, that wasn't how I reacted at all and she burst into tears. [Fall 1960]

Realized at 13, but suspected for two years prior. 1977. Well maybe only one year prior. It's all so fuzzy now.

I was a know it all, so I figured what point was there in telling the parents. Whoops. I wish I could go back and play that one over again. Dumb, dumb, dumb....

Honestly? 35. Though I had a few experiences in my youth, it was nothing I actively surpressed or persued. Then I turned 35 and something changed. After obcessing for two years over it, I had my first adult hook up(1997). That hook up turned into a three year, off again/on again fling where deep feelings messed things up. He dumped me because I came out to my wife and he didn't want to be responsible for the break up of my marriage. Here we are, three years later, The wife and I are still going strong and I have a great, new guy in my life.

Hmm, I didn't really have any definite times. I just knew all along.

I think I always knew I was different from what was considered "normal" at the time. I can't ever remember NOT being different.
In the Beginning there was nothing, and God said: 'Let there be Light." There was still nothing, but you could see it.
