so my dad and I are making small talk at Denny’s and the conversation slowly drifts towards relationships. i recently told my dad about my boyfriend and at Denny’s he finally brings up
“i thought you and Marilyn were together”
For a while he thought my best friend and I were a couple. Although, or well at least i thought, he knew she had a boyfriend. My mom and my cousin told me this a long time ago when he was asking them if I was. Even though i knew, for some reason I thought that maybe they were playing a joke on me or they heard wrong. so when my dad finally brings it up that he thought that all I could respond with was “i know”. He told me that whenever his friends would ask about me and whether or not I had a boyfriend yet he would always reply with no.
“I think she plays for the other team. It’s ok I have nothing to worry about then”
Funny when I was talking to my boyfriend about telling my dad I about him our conversation went a roughly like this:
Ryan: When are you gonna tell your dad about us?
Me: Probably Friday. You know what’s funny? I think my dad still thinks I’m gay.
Ryan: Really? Well maybe he’ll be a little relieved that you’re into boys.
Me: I think he kind of likes that I might be gay. He wouldn’t have to worry about me getting preggers.
I always nervous about telling my dad about guys. I always thought that he’d be more ok with me being gay. Turns out I was right.
it’s nice to know that my family would accept me regardless of which gender i’m attracted to
