When did you discover your attraction? Who in your life knows?
Looking back I’ve always liked young girls, but I started intensely feeling that attraction around puberty. Since I was close in age to them, I didn’t realize I was a MAP until I got older and they stayed the same age. I finally came to terms with it when I was in my early 20s.
I’ve come out to my high school friends, and my family. Much of my family has disowned me. My friends were cool until they had daughters, then tension mounted and now we’ve gone our separate ways. A few of my college friends probably suspect, but I’ve never explicitly told them.
While it’s somewhat liberating to tell people, I don’t recommend it because there’s all kinds of repercussions that you may be feeling for a long time.
