My boyfriend of almost two years used to be slightly homophobic when we first started dating. It didn’t really show until I realized I wanted to spend the rest of my life with him. This made me determined to change that aspect of his personality and belief system.
Last night, almost a year and a half after I fell madly in love with him, I came out to him as bisexual. I just blurted it out in the car while we were driving to look at apartments. At first he just kinda stared off into space to process what I told him, so I pulled over and started crying because I thought he was going to break up with me. Instead, when he saw me crying, he pulled me into a hug and let me cry on his shoulder. He saw me crying and he started to cry as well. He comforted me and told me that it would never change the way he felt about me.
I’m so damn proud of how far he’s come.
