I am a closeted lesbian, and I’m not proud of that fact, even though I haven't had the chance to be open about it.
I am struggling because of my culture and my religion.
I feel as though my sexuality will disappoint my family and friends, and that it will change their perception of me. I love my girlfriend.
In the beginning, she was fine with me hiding who I really am, but now she is starting to feel as though she is my “dirty little secret.” I am finding it difficult to make her understand my situation.
She is demanding things I cannot give her. I cannot be open; it wouldn't be fair to my family.
This is putting a strain on our relationship and we have been arguing more frequently over petty things.
I’m not sure how to go about this, but I do know I want to be happy, and that she makes me happy.
I love the being in her presence. What should I do?
