Right after reading ur post guys, i was inspired sharing my same sex relationship experience. By the way before we get this started, i am tasha from las pi単as city but born and raised in quezon city.i actualy came fr a very conventional type of family not until the day it already became absurd to me.well my very first and remarkable experience was during my college days. The day i met this girl ann melody now known as 'andy'. I find her weird the first day i met her she was so quiet and aloof from d group but i admit thar her brains blow me off cuz she is a genious. So there i considered her much of the nerdy type. Until 1day, i was so depressed of wtsgoin on with my family. I jst dnt kno exactly how to describe how affected i am during those ttime. Then there she was andy was so consistent lifting my spirit its as if im always for counselling. Crazy thoughts plays insyd my head suicide is like the best thing to do by that time. Andy became my bestest friend. We spend r breaktyms on the lagoon talking out of thiz world ideas. Until shr started to care for me that much she srnds me bk home safely and waits for me before r class begins. Then one afternoon she confessed something that completely changed my life...she said she loved me... And guess wt she even diatinguishrd that she jst dnt lyk me but again she has absolutely falln in love with me. My initial reaction was.so stupid. I said wr cn nvr be cuz wer both shes. She jst simply implied ilovryou and i dnt care if this is nt within d so called social norm. I was about to cry wen she said that. Cuz at d bk of my head i already loved her but i jst cnt confess bec of there r alot of factors to consider. She asked me if we can unwind for awhile maybe bec of my reaction she might have felt my confusion,doubts and fears. Until i camebk to my senses and i replied bk...'yes' i cud definitely be ur gf bt with an exemption there shall be no commitment...andy was perplexed by thr condition i set..
