“The reaction of my parents was difficult.
It’s a “don’t ask, don’t tell” situation. They know I have a boyfriend and everything but we’ve agreed not to talk about it.
We get along and everything, but they just don’t want to hear about it. Even this is better than it used to be. At first they didn’t even want to accept it, so this is a step forward.
I have hopes that eventually they will accept everything and maybe even get to know him.”
