@PomoFrannyGlass I got out of a soul destroying relationship and spent four months having enthusiastic no strings attached sex until I got sick of people I was sleeping with not giving a shit about me. I traveled for six months and learned a new language and did stuff for me and came back content to wait, just not interested in making the effort. and then I met a friend of a friend while visiting family on the opposite coast and just. it's everything. it's everything I never could have described wanting. I've never felt so safe and supported and loved and cherished just for being me, I've never felt so beautiful, I've never felt so passionately about all of the amazing things that my partner does and is. he's so smart! and so kind! and so thoughtful and creative and caring and I want to know every single thing about him, and it's mutual.

being in a relationship again is bringing up some mucky stuff from the bottom of my soul pond and he's excited when we talk it out, and I feel so safe exploring that, figuring out what pieces of my past aren't useful to me anymore, figuring out which ones I need to come to peace with. I probably COULD do it without him, but I'm so glad he's doing it with me. and the other great thing is that THAT is mutual too.

plus, you know. best sex of my life. the only downside is we live 3000 miles apart. y'all. I can't even deal with how much I'm in love with him. brb running away to brooklyn so we can hold hands and kiss all the time.

On What's the Best Song to Have Sex To?

@lora.bee my current partner and I have really intensely emotional sex, and we're big sigur ros/explosions in the sky fans. lyrics are a no-go for sure for me, though, because nothing is worse than feeling the urge to sing along...

Look, nice try, but this is not pissed off enough about how fucking offensive and appropriative this was. For more reflection on the forced sexualization of black women and how, once again, solidarity is for white women, please read this. http://groupthink.jezebel.com/solidarity-is-for-miley-cyrus-1203666732

@lasso tabasco I straight-up blocked my ex because i couldn't deal with it. And then I hid all his friends' posts. And then an invitation to his birthday party showed up on a mutual friend's wall and my heart did that flippy floppy thing and I started crying at work. D: anyway STAY STRONG is what I'm saying. breakups are the worst.
