I have a friend that we all know is gay but he is afraid to admit it. It hurts to me that he not trust in me because he was the first person to i tell that i'm bi. What do you recommend me to help him to have confidence in me?
I know you don’t want to hear this but you need to back off. I’m sure he knows he can trust you but doesn’t know how to trust himself. Don’t pressure him. Be as supportive and loving as possible but drop the gay thing until he comes to you with it. And don’t take it personally, okay? He’s not hiding from you because of anything to do with you. It’s all his own stuff he’s having trouble sorting through. And also, maybe he’s not gay! I have some of the gayest straight friends and visa versa – you’d be surprised. Never assume what someone is feeling.
