I want to introduce him

This week is the PERFECT week to introduce him to my parents as my sister is not going to be in town. Can I muster the courage? I have had such an anxious burning feeling in my chest and stomach as I have tried to bring the subject up to my parents.

I haven't exactly come straight out and told my parents I have a boyfriend, but in all of my stories about our adventures I use his name.

Mike: Yes! Do it over a social gathering, like dinner and out at a public place so your mom will less likely have an open meltdown. And since you dad seems supportive, give him a heads up in advance so he can be ready to defend you if needed.

I agree with Fan Of Casey, a function with a lot of people around will prevent a major meltdown and thus making sure that Mike does not get embarrassed. Do you think your family already have an inkling you are gay?

@ fan of casey: I agree- public dinner, let dad know ahead of time. Ay!

@ Mind of Mine: My mom knows, but would rather not know I think. It doesn't come up and she still makes comments about gays when she hears a news story etc.
