Sometimes, even with straight couples, one partner doesn't want the world to know about the relationship before the other one does. I hope that helped and thank you for choosing 7cups of tea!
Whether you are ready or not, they should be supportive.
If the mood suddenly changes; if he becomes disengaged and moody when it’s time to say good-night, don’t take it the wrong way. “Things are going to progress in sudden stops and starts,” says Kort.
“That requires patience.” Don’t think a week or two is long enough for someone in the closet to “get on with it already.” Give the object of your affection more time, advises Gregory Cason, a California psychologist specializing in gay issues.
Neither of you should feel pressure on the relationship, if you enjoy being together and are happy together, don't be afraid to show it at some point. If your partner is out of the closet and you're not out yet, it will only cause a lot of issues in your relationship only if you choose to let it.It takes more time for some people to come out and you can't force someone to come out in any way, shape form or fashion. Surely your partner understands how this feels so they shouldn't rush you.Before the relationship gets to serious I recommend that you sit down and have a conversation with your partner so that you may prevent any problems from occurring in the future.But for gay couples in this day and age, this problem is sometimes bypassed by a much more complicated one.What happens when your boyfriend of girlfriend is in the closet?
