Dear Ms. Meniscus, I'm gay and when I came out a few years ago, it was terrifying and I was so scared of losing all of my friends. But most of them were really cool about it. Things have quieted down, and I even have a boyfriend now. But it's my parents -- I haven't told them yet. And I don't know how to. They're very conservative and, though I was afraid to lose my friends, I'm REALLY afraid to lose my parents. What do I do? -Determined in Dover
Dear Ms. Meniscus, I have been dating a Christian man who has his own Gospel Group. He told me he had been divorced about six months, separated for almost a year. After dating for almost three months, his wife (!) told me that she found out about ME, which made HER ask for a divorce. He allowed me to fall in love with him BEFORE telling me he was still MARRIED. I have never been married and am a very loving person. I am having such a hard time walking away because of course he starts saying everything I want to hear. PLEASE tell me how to gain the courage and strength to WALK AWAY. -Chipped Crystal
