  • Is it because he doesn't think you love him? Or because he does not approve of your life style?

  • Never seen the roles reversed....usually it is the parents who shuts someone out of their life for being gay....a little communication here goes a long way, sit with him and explain why you have done this...hopefully this is something you have been repressing and not experimental.

  • Haven't you convinced him after all these years? Sounds like it has to do with the recent changes in your life. Just keep trying. Hopefully he will come around.

  • He knows you love him( hopefully) he sounds like he just doesn't approve if your lifestyle ... He'll come around it's hard for loved ones to accept a change like that sometimes.... Good luck

  • You simply love him.
    If you know his number or where he is call or drop him a line . Tell him you love him and would like to talk, when ever his is ready.

  • Imagine the shock of knowing someone your whole life, and they pull a complete 180 on you?
    Give him time.

  • You can't prove to anyone that you love him or her. You have to just keep living as if you love the person and give him time. He will either accept your love or not; that's out of your control. I wish you the best.
