Babes in the woods

My Love and I are both in our 30s. We both came out of the closet last year. Our paths were different.

I knew that I was gay when I was a teenager. I was deeply in the closet. I passed as straight. No one ever suspected otherwise. The thought of acting on my knowledge horrified me. I’ll write more – a lot more – about that.

Until last year, my Love never questioned her default assumption that she was straight. She dated men. She had great affection for two of them, but no passion. The penny dropped on her last spring. It caused her no qualm. She accepted it and moved forward. I’ll try to get her to write more about that.

I am the first woman she ever dated. She is the only woman I have ever dated.

We are making this up as we go along.

  2. I am happy for you both to have found someone so special on the first go. I am also in my 30s. I knew I was gay at a very young age but fought against it. I am now single and don’t see any light within that tunnel. I have met and dated the love of my life – she’s with someone else now. I hope one day I know real love but I have my doubts. I am really enjoying getting to know you through your blog. It’s nice to know someone else out there is a Christian and a lesbian. Thanks.
