For people of a certain age, initial attempts at coming out are most likely awkward at best and devastating at worst. First there was the struggle to become comfortable enough whit your own sexuality to actually talk about it with a close friend, confidante or at best someone you meet online. Then there were the conversations themselves tentative mumblings, explosions of guilt, bursts of jubilation, or stammering combinations of all three. Finally, most memorable of all, there was the stunned silence that often greeted the big "confession." All this drama made a certain sense.
