Anonymous asked: Heyy :$ Umm this may be weird, but I could really do with some advice... I'm about to enter a relationship with this girl (I am also female) yet I've only ever been in heterosexual relationships before and I'm kind of nervous. You and Luna seem to have a beautiful relationship and I just wanted to talk to someone already in a relationship. What are the good things and bad things? How do other people respond to the two of you? I'm sorry if this seems kind of intrusive, I'm just nervous :S x
I think the main difference I’ve observed in our relationship compared to most straight couples is that we never have to worry about gender roles and there is no pressure for either of us to be the “girl” or the “boy” in our couple dynamics (for example I might do more typical “manly” things like provide money for both of us but I don’t do this because society told me to, same with her staying home and doing dishes and such; we do this because it suits us best and we don’t feel bad for it, I think that’s very liberating). Most people have responded really well to us, but I mean that really depends on who you’re around, if everyone you know is super conservative and anti-gay well then obviously you might have a negative response but in our case I think people can see that we work well together and it doesn’t matter that we’re two girls :) the only bad thing about our relationship is that we both worry way too much but that’s really just specific to us, it’s something I really want to work on and improve over the next couple of months. the good things are having someone that you can always talk to and snuggles and pet names and sharing everything including clothes, shoes, underwear and deodorant (but that might just be us being gross) :D
sorry that was a really long answer, don’t be nervous just go for it if it feels right!
