Steven was just here for a whole entire week and it was awesome.
He left today, which is less than awesome.
Cause he’s not my boyfriend cause that doesn’t work for me. We’re not a “straight couple” in that I’m not straight and a “straight couple” assumes straightness for both parties. I call him my partner because we’re significantly more serious than a casual boyfriend/girlfriend, so I don’t feel like it’s justified to call him my “boyfriend”. We’re not at the point where we’re engaged or married, so what the fuck am I supposed to call him?
Please know that my ‘Keep on rolling like nothing ever happened.’ response was made in despair and (what I feel to be) a relatively honest critique of what happens when something fucking asinine happens. We all get up in arms and then a week later, it’s just back to business as usual.
I don’t have more spoons for this tonight, but damage control had to be done.
