My mom is almost the same way with me 

Mom: So, you have a boyfriend yet?
Me: Mom, I don't want a relationship right now.
Mom: I can introduce you to a young male coworker of mine...
Me: Mom please...
Mom: Or I can tell you about my friend's young son!
Me: MOM.

She wants me to be happy, but I gotta remind her that I'm too busy with work and college to be wanting to date right now.
Awesome Comic!

wish the world was this accepting. people who give others a hard time for minor differences (sexuality, race, ect) really piss me off

Sounds a bit like my mom, but instead it goes something like this:

"So, do you have a boyfriend yet?"
"Nah, I don't really want one."
"Why not? You know quite a few cuties."
"Meh, they're just not really my type."
"You do like boys, right?"
"Yeah, last time I checked."
"Well, if you change your mind, you know quite a few cute girls too!"

She's so chill about it, even though I've told her countless times that I'm not a lesbian. But hey, at least she's trying.

I told my mom I was gay... She said "I know"
SERIOUSLY! Took me forever to get the courage for that!

So you never know, she might already know and is just playing the part so you don't feel awkward!

All I can say Daryl is... good luck. Wish u the best cuz.. I'll be honest, my coming out was horrible. I came out a few days my mom died (that was like about 1 year ago alredy) And my family took it so bad. I know it was a bad idea in that moment (cuz everybody was pretty very sad by that time) but I couldnt resist it anymore, it was a HUGE weight in my back. And im sure the only person that would've accepted me was my mom, but she wasnt there anymore. Im sure ur mom will be okay dont worry :aww:

btw.. sorry about my engrish. Im still learning! and hope this will be helpful, i know what ur going through.

I tried that once, trying to see if she would get mad at me but she just looked me straight in the face and said, "So?" I told her I was joking but she was okay about it :) I'm glad to a such an accepting parent

This is how it should be more often, with the parents being excepting and kind when their child admits something like that. Love it!

Kudos friend, approaching your parents is the hardest part of coming out. Once you've managed that it'll be tough for a little while, while they think things over, but after that it gets so much easier. Best wishes ^_^

I gotta confess, D, when I was a kid, I used to think that only a man and woman is the logical thing, not two men and two women.

That is until I realized how wrong and closed-minded I was...and I was reborn thanks to my unintentional encounter with a certain site with the most steamy yaoi fanfiction that I have ever read. Granted I was embarrassed and couldn't go on, but for some odd reason, I couldn't help but go back to read it over and over again.

It was then I realized that the world is imperfect, reality is cruel, certain phrases like "it's for your own good" or "don't be selfish" are nothing but sweet lies for you to cling to...but we managed to crawl out of that hole and replace that reality with our vision, one piece at a time.

Plus, your mom is awesome. :highfive:
