ok so lots of you have been sweethearts today (like actually a v disproportionate amount, am i giving off pheromones through the internet??) and tbh i do not have the mental ability to respond individually tonight but
The first time I realized I’m probably bisexual was in the middle of class, a couple of years ago. I don’t remember the class to be honest, but it was a class that required a presentation for our midterm. I got paired with a girl named Bridget. She was stunning, and I had never really been taken by any person before than I had her. I was 20 at the time, almost 21, and it was around this time of year, actually. She was very sweet, and listened to my ideas, and together, we put together a project. When we set up a time to meet that later on day to work on our project, I was scared. I didn’t know why I was so nervous, but all I kept thinking of was how nice her legs were in the skirts she always wore. When she arrived, I was literally sweating and so nervous that I excused myself to the bathroom, to cry because I thought I was a freak. There was no one to tell me that what I was feeling was normal. When I went back to the table, she was looking over the work and gave me this warm smile. I wanted to die a little. We started to work on the project. I was charming and witty, and she really enjoyed my company—a couple of times I made her laugh to the point of tears.
When we were done, she gave me a hug, and told me we would see each other in class. The rest of the semester, we’d walk out of class together, and say hello. I couldn’t stop thinking about her all the time, and I thought of ways to hang out with her so I could tell her how I felt but then when the last day came, she gave me a big hug and told me that I was going to be fine, and that everything was going to be okay. I never saw her again after that. But she’ll always be special to me. I’m sorry for putting this all in your submit box, but I wanted to share this story with someone and I know you’re not judgmental. I’ve never shared this story with anyone else, and I would rather remain anonymous for now until I’m ready to claim this story. I don’t mind if you publish this, part of me wants you to, in case someone else is struggling like I was. Thank you!
oh my god :’) this is lovely!
