How do I tell my parents I have a gf? (I'm a girl)

Okay so it's my first girlfriend never liked girls before until her and I can honestly say I'm in love for the first time. So I guess it's kind of important for my parents to know? I just want them to be happy for me and support me this hasn't been an easy ride. We have decided we are going to live together but first she has to move in with me at parents house too save up - parents know she is coming but they think it's just a friend. I'd really like them to know because she means everything to me and I'm proud to call her mine so I shouldn't have to hide her. It's just how the hell am I supposed to word this shit? Why is life so god Sam complicated lol guess it let's you know your alive....all advice accepted and appreciated. Thanks x

Take your time figuring out what to do. Telling them now might not be the best approach. Try thinking about what's best for your ongoing relationship with your parents, not just what you want right now. You might want to postpone telling them until you're self-sufficient.

If you think your parents are going to have a problem with this, then you need to think seriously about bringing it under their roof... Can you two stay someplace else. Or can she stay with her folks?

If you're going to stay there, you two should respect their feelings and cool it until you've got your own place. Your parents aren't going to like being lied to when you tell them, so be prepared for that as well.

I agree with skyDancer. If your family has negative feelings about homosexuality, it's better to have them suspect you're gay for a while than to create a shocking situation where regrettable things might be said.

... especially a shocking situation that ends with you out on the streets!
How to tell them I have a gf when she's a foster child they know I am "just friends" with her and my parents know I'm LGBTQ+ (queer/ pansexual) she makes me happy and I knew her for a long time I'm 12 and she is also we have musical theatre (1st period for me 2nd for her) I just don't want her to get hurt from her grandma because she's getting adopted soon and I don't want to lose her Friday she had heart surgery #107 and her heart is stabilizing now. But how should I tell them...?
Just tell them straight up i'm gay. If they are understanding, as parents should be, they will be accepting and will help you. If they are really defensive Christians, then you are screwed.

I sorta think she knows because mums know everything But I just don't know how to say it lol! thanks for the advice guys! much appreciated x
Don't tell them. Why should you if you aren't comfortable. Wait till you are. But it's not like they need to know, it's not a life or death matter. Just wait until you think it's the right time.

i agree gspice I told my mum that I was a bi but I did it because I was scared and confused but I did at the right time when I was ready and now I fell much better because I got help and I wasn't so scared or nervouse so just tell your parents when your ready then they might sopport you but if they dont I will

honestly if you think they will take it well then sit them down with her also, and tell them what is truly happeneing. if they love you (wich they should cause there your parents) they shouldnt havea prob with it. and if its love, they cant argue if they truly want your happiness. good luck :) and im very happy for you btw

thats true but some parents also may not accept it. so its good to be careful sometimes
My husband and I have been married for about 7 years now. We were happily married with two children, a boy and a girl. 3 months ago I started to notice strange behavior from him and a few weeks later I discovered that my husband was seeing someone. He started coming home late from work, he doesn't care about me or the kids anymore, sometimes he goes out and doesn't even come home for about 2-3 days. I did everything I could to correct this problem but to no in vain. I became very worried and needed help. One day when I was searching the Internet, I came across a website that suggested that Dr. Padman could help resolve marital problems, restore broken relationships, and so on. So I felt like I had to give it a try. I contacted him and he made a spell for me. Two days later, my husband came to see me and apologized for the wrongs he had committed and promised to never do it again. Since then, everything has returned to normal. My family and I live happily together again. All thanks to Dr. Padman. If you need a spellcaster capable of casting a spell that really works, I suggest you contact him. He will not disappoint you. Here is his email: or ( .
