Wow. How did you end up discovering that? Can't imagine how I'd react to that. How are you taking it? Hope this is a good thing.

Wow. Always feel a tad disapointed when I find out big things via facebook. Found out one of my best friends was married when he posted a message to us all to say that he was. Cheap bastard.

So did this half sister aproach you? And quite a strange way to do it. Although if she's nervous suppose facebook is the safe option, instead of turning up at your front door.

Crazy. So how are you taking the news? And any idea what you want to do? (If anything. If you already have a lot on your plate then you may not want to add to it until you feel ready for it)

Yeah I bet you do. Sorry shouldn't keep asking questions, probably got loads flying round your head already without me asking stuff. Obviously this is a massive shock, but potentially a good thing. So congratulations.

I'm going to remain reserved before I start seeing it as a good or bad thing. There are questions, and I want answers.

Sounds very sensible and from what I can guess of the situation, understandable. I hope you get the answers you're after. But, like I said before ask whenever it's best for you. Just because you've had this bombshell dropped on you, doesn't mean you have to drop whatever you're currently dealing with.

Suppose finding out why you're being told now may be a start.

Haha, damn there I go wording things badly again. Maybe that's why there was a phase where gay men at our local bar would keep trying to chat me up.
