Hey internet,
This is the first time Iโ€™ve ever posted anonymously but Iโ€™m in a bit of a pickle! My girlfriend asked me to marry her last night which is amazing! The problem is that Iโ€™m not out to my homophobic dad yet. Iโ€™ve been procrastinating quite a bit. I know I have to come out to him now since Iโ€™m getting married but Itโ€™s always hard coming out.ย 
Sometimes I question if he already knows since he knows my partner and I are living together and we come to family events together but Iโ€™m not sure.
Any help would be very much appreciated! Thanks!

Hey love, Iโ€™m so glad that youโ€™re posting this here and letting out your dilemmas.ย 
First of all, congratulationsss!!! This is great news, I hope that all goes well.
Iโ€™d say, if you feel that your dad already has an idea about it, then Iโ€™m guessing heโ€™s just trying to respect your privacy and waiting for you to tell him about it. Itโ€™s also okay if you procrastinated and took your time. I know itโ€™s not easy. So, take your time and then tell him whenever you feel comfortable.
Itโ€™s afterall your life and your decisions. Your dad loves you and will be accepting of your choices!
All the best xx
