I came out to my friend yesterday, while hanging around watching tv in my apartment, which seemed like the right time. He was also pretty shocked, but he definitely had one of those "ohhh" moments. Apparently a few months ago his new girlfriend asked him if I was gay, and he had dismissed it, purely on the basis that I would have told him by now. Still, he was totally cool about it, and it was pretty comfortable eventually. I'm really glad I got to come out to him in person first, as he had a lot of the questions I'm anticipating from other people ("weren't you fucking girls before?" is the one that springs to mind).
After that we went out to dinner and some bars and then ended up at a friend's birthday party. At the party, some guy took off all his clothes and was wearing a sock for the rest of the night. He had a really good body, for a hipster. I think this may be a message: I come out, and I'm showered with hot, naked men.
