Sharing our significant others

My cousin who frequently visits Cali has officially moved out here and wants to do dinner Saturday night. She is moved in with her boyfriend and wants me to meet him. She made a proposition for dinner Saturday night after texting back and forth over the past week or so, and she wants to meet. She wants to introduce me to her man, and I want to introduce her to mine. The problem? I'm not really out to her. I think I've sort of hinted.

I haven't replied to her proposal for dinner, but I want to say something along the lines of, "are we bringing our significant others? I'd like to bring mine, but you should know that he is a guy, and that I am gay." Awkward much?

Or maybe my reply should be like "I would love for you to meet my boyfriend."

Maybe I should call her because coming out over text is so impersonal?

I've just now found your blog & am looking forward to getting to know you.

Re your cousin who has just moved to town & who wants to do comme on dit dinner... Were I you, I'd text her:
"Yes, & I want to bring my boy friend, whom you've never met & of whom I'm quite proud."

Happy Thanksgiving!

Mike: I vote for the second message. Saying you have a BF and that you are gay is kind of redundant.

Happy Thanksgiving!
