- Wedding: August 2012
and he already knew! Facebook and mutual friends I guess…. but he hadn’t said anything yet and I felt it would be too awkward to tell him directly, so I’ve been avoiding the subject when we talk (we still own a house together so we’re in touch semi-regularly).
He actually said “congratulations, I guess” – which is such his style, to say the right thing, but add sarcasm. This is big, since I left him for her, and even though that was the summer of 2008, we were together almost 6 years.
We had discussed marriage, but never seriously. Towards the end I pressured him into buying me a promise ring so I wouldn’t get hit on by men so much at work (did the trick nicely, actually). When we broke up I gave him that ring back.
anyway, he thought I was just going through a lesbian phase and would come back to him eventually. Things were really rough for the first year after our break up. I suffered a lot of emotional abuse, and I’m so glad that’s all behind me now.
I just feel so relieved to know finally that he knows, and he can think whatever. My heart was racing on the “chat”, i didn’t realize I still had such an emotional charge with him, but this is a big thing I guess.
anyway, just sharing. thanks lgtqbees! 🙂
