Aunt: so are you seeing anyone at the moment?

Aunt: awww! who is he? whats his name? what is his job?
Me: umm… a florist
Douchey cousin: a florist? ha! he’s probably gay
Me: Yeah. she is
And that’s how i came out to my entire extended family at once
there can be only one
i get really happy when it’s not me who starts the conversation because that removes so much anxiety about whether i’m bothering the person or if they secretly hate me even if i know that’s not true
