We interrupt the regularly scheduled Utah Updates to bring you the news that The Boy and I are "coming out" tonight. You see, we met about 2 months ago through a mutual friend. We began seeing each other shortly after and dug ourselves into a little secret hole. Before our first date, neither of us mentioned it to our friends. We felt like if we said, "Hey, we have something to tell you..." it seemed like some sort of admission of guilt. But if we didn't say anything then we were clearly sneaking around. After the first few dates we debated how to handle telling everyone. We didn't want to say something too soon just in case it turned out to be nothing. But then we kept waiting and now it's 2 months later. At first we felt really guilty. Our friends would say what are you up to and we would both lie. But then it became a funny inside joke. We would laugh about all the ridiculous possible ways we would tell them. Now, it's still funny, but we'd kinda would like to be able to see in other in public, not that snuggling and watching movies on the couch isn't fun.
So tonight we're gonna break it to them slowly by saying we "bumped into each other" on the subway and decided to go for a drink. This all probably sounds a bit ridiculous. I mean, why would our friends even care that we're seeing each other? I guess we've just waited too long and they might find it weird since they probably can't see us together. Anyway, moral of the story...While secrets can be fun and send you into giggle fits, telling the truth, more often, is probably a better idea...
