Today at Christmas lunch


Aunt: so are you seeing anyone at the moment?

Me: yeah, actually. 

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

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
