You age will make a difference in how this constant friend viewed. Go ahead and bring him along to family events. Everyone will get to know him as the great guy he is. Those that are homo-friendly will probably figure it out. Those folks to keep it to the themselves until you decide to make a declaration. The others will be oblivious. The give away to my family was the lack of a girlfriend for 20 years. They never suspected my close male friends. Unless your family is openly anti-gay (like religious fundamentalists) then they will not catch on and learn to like your “best” male friend.
Great feedback! I truly think that if he hasn’t been dating anyone for a long time and brings his “co-worker” or “friend” that even some of the most conservative people will have thoughts about it.
I’m surprised that they didn’t suspect your close male friends. In fact, you would be the first person I’ve spoken to that has had that experience. Most everyone I know has their family admit to them later that they had a clue for sure.
Great feedback! :)
Well, I haven’t really noticed that myself…but I’m not a doctor, nurse or even a medical student. But here is something I read just recently: http://goaskalice.columbia.edu/risks-anal-sex-other-stis
Check it out and let me know what you think. I can’t say that the link is a definitive as there is enough people on both sides of the fence.
That said, I can tell you that Chris and I have been together nearly 12 years and haven’t really run into any anal problems due to sex.
But it’s like anything else you check out on the internet… it all snowballs into something super crazy and serious. At least, that’s my experience. I cough a couple of times, look it up, and somehow I have something that will end in death! lol. I think the internet is a scary place to go with medical questions sometimes.
If you are really worried, I would suggest talking to your doctor about it. That’s what they are there for, and he will have more specific advice for you knowing your specific case. :-)
I hope that helps!
