Small town gay: Whisper stories!

Small towns might look like a nice place to visit, but it’s not always easy to live in them – just ask some of these guys who shared their stories on whisper! Not every small town can be Eureka Springs (which you can visit if you find a cute guy on yec.com who wants to cover your travel expenses) and life in some of these town can be pretty devastating if you’re young, gay and want to find a boyfriend.

I want a boyfriend really badly. I've never had one, it's hard to find one being gay in a small town. :/
I'm so desperate for a boyfriend, but being gay in a small town isn't easy

 

I hate being gay and living in a small town. You see the same damn 5 guys and that's all you get to choose from...
Sometimes I want to move away and start a new life because I hate my life here. Somewhere where being gay is socially acceptable :/

 

Being a gay guy in a small town, I build walls and close myself off to straight guys in order to keep myself from getting hurt. It sucks because I'm sure I've lost out on some good friends.

 

The town I go to school in  is known for being ultra conservative and antigay. Good thing this closet is cozy....
I want to leave and move away to expand my options in hopes of actually finding a gay guy that isn't so strange..which is all I seem to find around here..

 

I'm gay and my boyfriend told me he loved me. We can't be together because we love in a homophobic town and it isn't safe. It's killing us inside

 

I hate sitting here with my mom and dad and then seeing a happy gay couple beside me. I want that, but my parents don't accept me.

 

Gay, never kissed anyone, and still a virgin. I feel  alone and lost in this town... I have friends but feel like I have no one  to talk to. Not sure  what to do.

 

I live in a small town and I can't decide to be honest and just come out as gay or come out as bisexual and try to soften the blow, which should I do?
It's easier to stay in  the closet around my family. We live in a  redneck town and most people are uneducated about homosexuality. I wish I was from a more progressive city

 

I think I'm gay but I don't know where to start... I live in a rural conservative community and my parents would probably disown me. I'm just so confused and don't know what to do
