HELLO FRIENDS

I have been inspired to start writing again but about more than just my relationship.

About my life.

There is more to my life than just my relationship with a transgender man. I have many different things I love and want to write about. I want to share about my passion for fitness, I have been on a journey of a healthier life now since May 2012. I have always loved all things beauty related, besides fashion, I seriously need help in that department. I am a lover of all kinds of foods and desserts which I want to share. I want to show others it is okay to still eat fun things and lose weight. This is my life: I’m in love with a transgender man, from a weightloss journey to powerlifting, beauty lover, and food fanatic.

My 23rd Birthday

The week before my birthday was the first time that Adam and I had met up after five years of not seeing one another. I was unsure what I wanted to do for my birthday but I knew I wanted to do something new and exciting. My neighbors at the time were a gay couple and wanted to take me to my first gay club. Since it was a group of people I thought it would be a great opportunity to invite Adam. I wanted to be around him, I wanted to get to know him better. I was extremely anxious to see Adam and experience my first gay club, which going to clubs was rare in it’s self.

Everyone came over before we headed out to the club which calmed my nerves a bit, with the help of some drinks. The night drifted away with dancing, a few drinks and lots of laughs with my friends. Throughout the night though I could not keep my eyes off of Adam. I found him attractive in some many ways and physically being one of them. I wanted something specifically for my birthday from him, a kiss.

As the night carried forward we became more comfortable with being even closer to each other. As he sat on a stool I walked up to him and sat on his lap. He proceeded to wrap his arms around me and I knew what this meant. I looked at Adam and started to lean in for the one thing I wanted for my birthday. As I closed my eyes and our bodies became closer, he swiftly turned his head and gave me a hug!

I was in shock, everything up until that moment proved he wanted that kiss just as much as I did. I decided to give it another shot and make it a bit more obvious, maybe he did not get the hint before. So I once again looked at him, pulled my body into his and went for a kiss. He did the same thing! I quickly then asked him what was wrong, why he would not kiss me? He seemed more nervous then I did and began to explain how he had never kissed anyone.

As the night came to an end we left the club and he shared about why he was timid to kiss me because he was unsure how to. I reassured him that it was fine and that I understood. I simply just enjoyed talking with him, getting to know his mind and heart. We got to know each other on a deeper level, sharing our hearts with one another. My birthday celebrations came to an end and it was time to say goodbye. Adam leaned in to give me a hug and my birthday kiss.

Five Years Later

IMG_1010

I was nervous, I did not know what to expect. What would he look like, would I call him Amy still? I sat in my car for a bit, nervously debating whether to go inside. I finally built up the courage to get out of my car and approach the restaurant. As I walked through the parking lot the door of the restaurant opened and I got a glimpse of him sitting inside. I did not understand why I felt so nervous, I was just catching up with an old friend from high school. I had not seen him in five years, maybe thats why I felt anxious. I opened the front door and their he was, sitting, waiting for me.

Adam had grown facial hair, had a lot more muscle on him, and looked like any other guy in the restaurant. I found him extremely attractive as Amy, but now I was more than ever. As we were seated we began to talk about our lives over the past years, our conversations were shallow and merely what I had expected.We shared little stories of the past and what our lives were like now five years after high school.

The next thing I knew we were not ready to end our night with one another. We continued our night walking around the parking lot digging deeper in conversations. Adam answered every question I had about his transition, he was completely transparent with me. The more he told me about himself the deeper our connection grew. We ended our night sitting in my car, he told me things he had never shared with others in relation to his transition. There was a connection between the two of us that kept us in that parking lot till 6am.

As I drove away from our long night, I knew there was something special. I knew that there was something between us. I knew I wanted to spend more time with him. I knew this was just one night of getting to know each other, but I wanted more from it all. I thought, how would this ever work? This is against my core beliefs, my faith. What would others think? I had so many endless questions that filled myself with doubt.

The months to come would reveal answers to all my questions and much more.

Where it first began

I was walking to class during passing period with one of my friends when I first met Amy. I had seen and heard of her but had never officially met her, I just knew she was different. Amy did not look like the other girls in school, she was tall, broad, buzzed cut hair and dressed like one of the guys. Then I got to know her better, we became good friends.

The following school year came and it was senior year of high school. Amy and I were both in Student Body, we would share many laughs and conversations. I always found her attractive, but was unsure of the fact that she was different. Different was something I did not handle well, I was raised Christian and we viewed life a certain way and Amy did not fit that. I knew she was different, but I accepted her.

We grew closer as our senior year of high school continued, but the end of the year was approaching. All those glorious end of high school events, including prom. Prom was just right around the corner and I knew just who I wanted as my prom date, Amy. I had a boyfriend at the time, but he went to a different school. I did not see the harm in going with a girlfriend to prom. Prom had finally come and we did not go with one another, but hung out and we had an amazing time. Amy had won Prom King though, yes I said Prom KING!

And little did I know five years later he would make me his Queen…

Welcome!

Hello World!

This blog will be primarily to share my journey and experiences of being behind someone who is among the LGBT community. My goal is to connect with others who support someone who is lesbian, gay, bi-sexual, or transgender.  This road has not been an easy one, but it has been very rewarding. I have seen so many support groups for those in the LGBT community and I want this to be a place for those behind them. Another goal is to show Transgender people that you are capable of loving and being loved. I am going to share my struggle and stories of falling deeply in love with a Transgender man.

Hope you will enjoy my journey!
