Dating girlfriend transition
I was also a little worried about her reaction because I had a friend in college whose girlfriend broke up with him because she did not want to date “a man” and was a “lesbian.” I figured that because we were apart, dealing with that kind of reaction long-distance would be harder than if I could tell her in person.
On the other hand I get why most straight woman would not want to date me.
Leo: Coming out to my partner wasn’t difficult at all.
I told her over lunch while visiting her on the east coast.
She took it well and didn’t seem too concerned at first.
Had I known how upset she was that I had waited, I would have been able to better explain why I felt the stakes were so high and why I decided to wait.
