I am at the point in my life that I am ready to begin my journey to telling my mother that I am gay. I am not going to spring the TG issues on her yet, I just want to be open with her about my sexuality. It has been 7 years since I have been with a woman and I know she is fully aware of that, but she doesn't know a thing about me being with men. I am not going to dive into the personal stuff at all. If she asks, I will tell her what I think she needs to know and that is it.
Why I am writing here is.... How should I approach my mom? How have others done it? What were some of the reactions? What should I look for or expect? I feel like an idiot. I am a grown person and mom/dad (single parent for the last 16 years) to a wonderful honor roll college student and I can't seem to find the 'right way' to approach my own mother.
