I love my boyfriend, but he may not realize how deeply different the world sees us and frankly how easy he has it in this country compared to people like me.
I truly believe that in your early twenties, a relationship’s sole purpose is to help each other grow.
Having this heavy on my mind made it so the pain of keeping it a secret became worse than the potential outcome if I came clean.
When his breakup text came through, they were still in my freezer: a thoughtful gesture that didn’t get a chance.
I had no idea how long this predilection of mine would last or how much friction it would eventually cause between me and the so-called “normal” members of humanity.
I wasn’t asking for much. I just wanted someone who was unique in the same ways that I was. Or at least complementary.
