love is love


ffffound

When people hear that I have a girlfriend, their response is always angry.
They use slurs and are generally very rude.
I don't understand. Love is love. Our relationship is great. We love each other. There are no arguments, ever. She makes me happy, and I make her happy.
We've all been together for two years. If It was legal where I live, I'd ask her to marry me.
When I told my mother about this, she scolded me and told me that I should be in a relationship with only guys, because that's the kind of thing that god approved of.
But like I said, It's been two years since she said that. In those two years, my mother has been in countless meaningless relationships with guys, over a hundred one night stands, and 'booty calls.'
It makes me wonder, is my meaningful relationship with a female worse than hundreds of meaningless relationships with males?
Is it really?

  5. no, it is not.
    how did you know? i've wondered if it's worth trying to have a relationship with a girl, because that would mean disapproval from everyone i know.

  6. The ONLY relationship I have ever been in that had absolutely no drama was with another woman. She had to move away for a while but we still love each other deeply and will have a bond forever no matter where we are. Be strong and know that you are lucky to have love.

  7. The first commenter said it best, "more power to you" indeed! Love is truly the most beautiful emotion one can ever feel, and is neither a privilege nor a right that should be wagered by those who deem their state of being to be greater than their fellow (wo)man's. Don't be swayed by what others say. Thus, in the words of the great philosopher Lenny Kravitz (haha), "you've got to let love rule".

  8. Either I'm just very lucky to be living where I'm living, or there is something very wrong with where the poster lives, or a combination of both, but neither me nor my friends would react on anyone having same-sex relationships.

    Why should we? You love who you love, end of story. We would probably be more annoyed if anyone we care about was seeing someone who wasn't good for them - abusive, or something like that - then we would react.

    But women loving other women, or guys loving other guys - whatever works, I say. It's all about being happy, and anyone trying to ruin that is an idiot. It doesn't matter if it's because of religious views, narrow-mindedness, hypocrisy, tradionalist views or anything, really - stop judging other people, and let them live their lives. As long as noone else gets hurt, people can do whatever they please, in my book.

  9. If men can love women, women should be able to love women. There is no difference. Humans are humans.

  10. i'm so happy that all the responses i've read are by such open-minded people! it makes days surrounded by idiots so much more hopeful. honey, you are doing the right thing because it's what's right for you! don't listen to people who try to bring you down-nothing from them is coming from the good place in their heart. i'm glad you've got a strong head on your shoulders. &heart;

  11. I have slowly fallen in love with a woman, who is a few years older than I. She is a lesbian, and makes no qualms about it. I am younger than her, and unsure (and have always been in relationships with men). I have never felt this way about a woman (and I have had crushes on others, but never acted on them). But this one is different. I am trying to work up my courage, especially as she once told me she only dates older women. I want to try, I want to love her. If only I dared.

  12. Well said! I remember when I came out as bisexual to my parents, I was scared to death 'cause they hadn't taken it so well when my sister came out. But luckily for me, they were fine with it. (Still they don't really approve when I take a girl home XD)As you said, love is love, and why shouldn't love be able to exist between two women/men?

  18. personally, I don't appreciate such kind of relationship...but I believe that everyone is free to choose what they want. God endowed EVERY ONE of us with reason and freedom so that we can choose, and nobody has the right to tell us what to do and what not to do.

  27. there you go, love is love. there's no right or wrong when it comes to love. i don't get why some people get so ridiculous over religious issues or sexual orientations issues. i find it very ridiculous. some say i'm saying this now cuz i'm still young and naive and all but i don't think it is why i think about such.

    i totally support you in what you're doing :) go on and be crazy and deeply in love with your love one.

  30. of course not - as you say, love is love, and if your mother thinks god wouldn't approve... well, wouldn't he be the one who made all kinds of love, homosexual and heterosexual? be proud of who you are - and who you love! xxx

  39. love does not discriminate :)
    love IS love.

    And the fact that even today, we are still fighting for this right to love and marry who we choose is evidence of how much work and progress we still need to strive for in our society.

    all the best and i'm very happy for you!

  40. I totally understand how you feel. Take it as it comes. Have faith in yourself and I'm sure you'll find your way out. I agree with the rest - love is love. :)

  41. I've been in a relationship with a girl for 3 yrs and sadly, it ended yesterday. We had a great time together,lived together for quite almost 2 years.. spent almost every waking moment together..but good things are just meant to last..we grew apart.. we became different...total opposite of one another..more lies...cheating..doubts and pain.we decided that it's time to let go..that what we have is no longer healthy..that being together is just ruining us individually..we're not happy anymore..we tried..but it simply not going to work.But even if we didn't end up being together, i have no regrets..taking the risk to be with her..coming out in the open..fighting for what we have.. loving her and living my life with her was the best thing that ever happened to me.. So treasure what you have..you're lucky to have experienced love and happiness... God Bless.
