Have to say, I had a pretty incredible date for my fraternity’s formal.
For the purposes of Tumblr, his name will henceforth be “Brotanks” (inside joke).
Thanks for sweeping me off my feet, Brotanks :)
PS. The top 2 awkward photos are our “straight” pictures for Facebook :P
You know when you’re just going through life day by day and everything seems great and then you just
think about him. and how happy he made you. and how you don’t understand what went wrong. or how you can make it right again. or IF you can make it right again.
or that perhaps you may have just lost the one true love of your life forever.
And he doesn’t notice. He lives his life day by day and doesn’t give you a second thought. And you realize that he meant SO much more to you than you ever meant to him. And it’s unequal suffering and it’s not fair and you want to make him feel guilty so you text him.
But texting him only reminds you how amazing talking to him made you feel.
and you hurt so much more than you ever have before.
The clever religious right and Facebook conservatives strike again with solid arguments and irrefutable reasoning why the LGBTQ community shouldn’t be given equal rights.
Their profile pictures convinced me. Who was I to think I deserved full marriage rights when Genesis clearly says….nothing on the issue.
Oh wait, but the abortion picture makes sense! Because if gays and lesbians get married they’ll also kill all of our precious fetuses, right?
Maybe I didn’t quite think this through.
Beyonce supports marriage equality. Your argument is invalid. The Queen hath spoken.
I think gay sex is beautiful.
I think lesbian sex is beautiful.
I think heterosexual sex is beautiful.
Welp, I watched Brokeback Mountain last night.
I am still crying.
It just opened up all of my insecurities about losing Christian forever and the whole fear of societal discrimination. It made me unspeakably angry that men had to endure physical torture and social ostracism for showing their non-heteronormative love.
I knew one of them would die before they reunited and got a place for themselves. BUT WHY WAS HE BEATEN TO DEATH. Shit like that STILL HAPPENS IN THIS COUNTRY. That is not okay. That must be changed.
I am not Catholic. I do not give a shit which old man will be spewing his hateful homophobic rhetoric next.
I swear if one more fucking person says “WE HAVE A NEW POPE” on Facebook I will fucking burn that fucking site fucking down fuck
The date last night went well :)
He’s a really funny guy and we had no problem carrying on a conversation!
Sadly, he is leaving for Boston for college next year…
But still, fun night and I’m glad it happened!
I was too chicken to kiss him or do anything though…next time (maybe)
Boost to the self-esteem: I asked out a guy on a date
Bigger boost to self-esteem: He said YES (quite a shocker :O)
He seems pretty cool. He’s going places with his academic career, he plays basketball and SNOWBOARDS (as a Canadian, that is a pretty big turn on). He’s African-American, which I’ve never gone for before, but that’s entirely irrelevant. He’s sweet and has made me laugh, and that’s pretty damn awesome.
If you’re sitting there saying “But he JUST got out of a 9 month relationship what the hell is he doing going on a date this soon after??”, let me explain my rationale:
It just feels good to be desired. Someone’s first choice. Someone that someone else finds interesting.
I don’t expect to get laid and I don’t expect to get a boyfriend. But for at least one night, I get to feel sexy, attractive, and fun.
