With the plan to move back to KL, I need to look for a room to rent.
When I lived in KL last time, my housemates were not exactly homophobic. But their occasional disrespectful jokes about gay and homosexuality made me feel a little uncomfortable, even though I was still in the closet that time.
And there was once they suspected me for being gay and hinted and tested me in various ways. Being fully in the closet that time, I wasn't ready to be out nor have this secret of mine be disclosed and so I felt uneasy and a little scared to be exposed.
Thanks to my moving back to my hometown, I get a lot of time to rethink on everything about myself, including my sexuality. And I slowly come out of closet to become who I am now. I think being in a new environment gave me the courage to slowly come out (not yet to my family though). If I were to continue staying in KL that time, I doubt I will start coming out as quickly as I am now.
In a way, I'm viewing my move to KL this time another stage of my coming out. I want to live more openly gay, so having non-homophobic housemates are important to me. Even though I'm more ready to be out to my friends now, I'd still prefer to have housemates who are sensitive about homosexuality, for at least they don't crack inappropriate jokes about gay.
And of course I don't want housemates with obnoxious living habits, too.
So I'm trying to look for a room via Grindr. I'm not sure if this is a good idea, but at least I can be quite sure that my housemates won't be homophobic.
Anyone with homophobic housemates wants to move?
