Well everyone, I am currently IN the biggest love of my life. This is going to be long, so please bear with me. I love to tell this story, but so few of our friends or family would understand.. Anyway. Here goes.
I have always been more attracted to women than to men, to the point where I was sure I was gay, and during my high school and college years made it a point to be out to all my friends. But in the rec room at college, there was this one guy I was always attracted to, so much so that it scared me. A little goth, a little punk, and very submissive, to the point of wearing a collar every day, and often handcuffs and shackles on his pants. We became very close friends very quickly.
Then one day he suddenly disappeared. No one knew anything, or if they did, they certainly weren't telling. (As it turns out, his girlfriend at the time had cheated on him, then gone around telling all our friends that he was the one cheating, and they ostracized him, keeping me completely out of the loop.)
Two years passed. I began my life in the dorms the second half of my college life, and finally got a Facebook account. One of the first things I did was look him up. He had been recently mugged (we lived in a very bad city) and moved about 80 miles away to another, more country-like city, which was much safer. We got to talking, then we started flirting, and after a few months of that he asked me something that shocked me.
He basically messaged me one night with a favor. And this isn't going to sound very romantic to anyone, but it's now a very fond memory for me. He said to me, "I know you're gay, but do you think..." After waiting several minutes he finally said, "Do you think if I got you a dildo you would fuck me? ... You wouldn't have to love me. Just fuck me." He was a very broken young man at the time. It broke my heart because I knew he was in pain and very lonely.
But I had
started to love him, and wanted more than to be just sex buddies. So we took it slow (I was a virgin at the time) and now we are seven years strong. A loving couple who are still learning fun new things about each other and our bodies, with a dog we've had for five years since puppyhood, and we have moved all over the country to pursue our dreams together. It's been an amazing ride and I hope it never ends!
To my knowledge, you can't make this stuff up. I don't think there is a movie about best friends who start pegging and BDSM, fall in love, and eventually open a restaurant together. But I could be wrong.
Happy Valentine's Day, everyone!
