Forever coming out

Will I seriously be coming out for the rest of my life?
I've had a substitute manager at work for a while because my actual manager is quite sick and on a medical loa.
Well today my new manager asked me if I'm married. I was caught a little of guard I think. I'm not sure why. It's a perfectly natural question.
I said "sorta, ya"
She laughed and seemed to be looking for a little more explanation of the "sorta".
I said "I'm not legally married, I have a partner, her name is Angela"
Her reaction was comfortingly natural.
I've been having some hmmm... How would I put this... Weird emotions recently. about being gay. I may or may not post further about this at another time... We all know how great I've been at keeping up with the blog.

You should post more. Weird emotions?

You will always be coming out. To teachers, other parents when your kid has playdates/parties, work, people who do work on your's never ending.

It's never- ending, Although I have found it gets easier the more you do it nd you start to care less about how people might react.

Yes, you need to post more about your feelings.

The coming out. It never ends. I love it when people don't assume (though that rarely happens). On the other hand, I'm finding (and hope you are too) that it's easier now than it was even five years ago. Maybe we won't see it but the next generation will - t won't be coming out anymore, it will be part of normal conversation.
