I live in the South, and come from a family who is very socially conservative. This is also true for most of my friends, coworkers, and generally anyone else whom I interact with. I have told my girlfriend, who was slightly worried about it. I think she was mainly worried because of the sticker shock, but she seems to be fine with it now.
Despite my worry of how people will accept me afterward, I feel like I at least need to tell my family, but I am unsure of how to do this. I have been thinking about telling my sister first, so that I will have someone who knows besides just me. One problem I'm worrying about is that I won't see my family until the holidays come around, which is not a time I want to ruin.
Should I wait until after the holidays to tell them? What is the best way to let very conservative family know? How did you come out to your family, if you have?
