I am Samantha from New Hampshire, USA.
I came out as Bisexual in 2015 even though I am Pansexual. Reason for coming out as Bi and then really I am Pan is because there are stupid people in my life that would make fun of Pansexual with jokes that aren’t funny about it, while Bisexuality they understand and wont joke about. So my most trusted friends know me as Pansexual, but for the challenged people in my life who dont understand Pansexuality they know me as labeled as Bisexual.
I tried to come out at age 10 when sharing that I had a boyfriend and it was ill received by strictly religious parents who told me that being a homosexual that I was going to burn in hell. I then had to lie and say that I didn’t have homosexual attraction to another boy and lied that it was his idea and I was just going along with it. When I came out in 2015 however it brought to light the years of lying of who I am and my preference to not be heterosexual.
In 2018 I joined a local transgender support group and I loved attending the meetings and being there to support others as well as them support me with my needs of answers to questions. My job getting crazy cut into my ability to attend and then Covid hit and shut down all social gatherings and so I have been away from others like me and so tonight I went out in search for groups to join up with and not feel so isolated from others like myself.
Myself I like to help others more than receive help myself. I enjoy making friends and chatting about just about anything. I like to learn new things from others, especially techniques for makeup application and doing nails.
I am divorced and have a 17 year old daughter who accepts me 100% which is a big help. Her mom told me that she didn’t marry me to become a lesbian as well as there were many other incompatibilities with us. I finally left the home in June 2020 into an apartment where I live with my amazing Fiance who is a Bisexual female and she completely accepts me as who I truly am and is supportive of me in every way. Her and I are same in size and so she moved in with me and just started wearing my selection of womens clothing. Only thing I had to buy was larger bras for her as my bras aren’t of cup size large enough for her. She left a failed relationship as well from a boyfriend who didnt accept her for who she was and what she wanted in life. It was the perfect pairing when we both found each other and I so wish that we found each other sooner in life to not suffer as long as we had prior to being together.
My fiance is pregnant with twins and we are so very happy. I asked her if I will have to change myself to look like a father as 100% male for our childrens lives growing up and she told me to just be myself and all will be fine; I dont need to hide who I am from my children. They will accept me better having seen their non-binary parent a fatherly/motherly figure alongside their mother.
Other than writing a book here about myself as I can type lots, I am going to end it here. I look forward to being a part of this group and helping if I can.
