I'm proud of her and I'm happy that she is ready to take this step in her life, but I feel abandoned. My wife is lesbian — I knew she had dated women prior to me, but we fell in love and remain so. I feel my lighter after making this choice.
My lesbian friend is about my age. But I don't have the courage to speak up. When faced with the freedom that the rest of us take for granted, they were unsure of who they were. Her daughters were raised to be wonderful, successful people by 3 loving parents. I realized my attraction to women early in my marriage, but played it off as fantasy. I am hoping it gets better and I can live my truth and not a lie.
She reached over and held my hand as we walked. I have been married for going on 18 years now and have 4 beautiful children. I immediately began sobbing, fearing I'd shattered his heart and that we would never be as close again. He made us laugh, he made us cry, he made us think. But there was something about this guy that I liked, despite my initial reflexive dismissal. I need to know for certain that I have tried.
I felt a connection with her that I have never experienced with any man. I actually just went thru this myself with a ten year relationship burying how i felt what i wanted and kinda settling i was miserable and deep down he knew. After the husband went to my therapy session the other day I realized that I was making this situation like a firestorm that I couldn't escape from fast enough. Linking to professionally published news articles is not doxxing. Your support did make a difference in my mindset and it will certainly help as we navigate our future together. She's obsessed with mermaids, glitter, self-esteem, sassy feminists, lesbians esp. I don't personally have children, but my understanding is that most people are pretty realistic about the fact that having a child is a sacrifice that severely limits their life choices, but sometimes people are very unrealistic about the fact that such a huge sacrifice still comes with a grieving process.
Am I really brave enough to cut ties with my husband and his family and probably some of our friends and the couch we picked out together? This study has been approved by the Fielding Graduate University Institutional Review Board. I could have continued on that unhappy road but I found a person who loves and respects me and has been my best friend since 1986, and my spouse since last year. In addition, she works for a conservative older woman with ties to her old church, so hides her true self from her as well for fear of losing her job. Well she got sick, I got busy, then she got busy, and things slowly deteriorated. He said that if I need to date women and try to discover my true sexuality, that's fine, and that he's not going anywhere unless I come to the realization that I really am lesbian and cannot be fulfilled by him. This is a hard road and u need the support of your friends and family members and your therapist. I do not want to separate and be responsible for destroying the bonds we have built.
His point is that it is absurd to imagine a demarcation point for gayness — because it misunderstands the nature of being gay or lesbian. Being Bisexual mean more then being sexually attracted to both sexes. Then I started wondering if I might be happier with a woman. I am trying to find other women who have experienced this situation. Life was way harder when I was trying to be straight.
Because I learned long ago that it corrodes a life to lie about who you are. I thought it was because there was no passion. I feel like I should be a part of it, but I'm not. Turns out, I married a fucking amazing man. I was not going to cheat on him - he deserved better than that. By the way, the stares are almost always given by women.
We are very good friends, and could have a primary relationship. But no one had presumed to relabel me, to retrofit me to their categories — at least, not to my face. We think lots of silly things when we are in our 20s. You deserve the freedom to go after your joy, and your husband deserves a shot with someone who can reciprocate his affection. I know we stay together for the kids but we never discuss it.
The lesbian community can have a hard time creating community when a bar is not involved. Deal is, I know she is lesbian. She says she is not in love with her and still loves me.
