My oldest sister started a Facebook thread with my siblings living in Utah to suggest we get together this month for football, chili, and conversation.
I suggested we find a day that my unmarried sister's boyfriend can make it (we've yet to meet him), and my oldest sister said, "Everybody bring dates..."
Now, I'm not going to bring a date -- despite the fact that I don't have anyone I could ask, I don't want to cause waves.
But I am wondering if I should say something like, "For the sake of it being an enjoyable and non-confrontational get together, I'll refrain from bringing a date ;)."
However, I don't know if I should even mention anything at all. On one hand, it could open up the conversation to see how comfortable my siblings are with the idea of me dating guys or even acknowledging that I'm a homo; on the other hand, just saying something could cause waves... and I really just want peace right now.
I honestly have no idea how they would react... so, should I risk confrontation and say something or play it safe and just leave it be?
