There's a reason I broke up with you so abruptly. I knew that I was your first serious girlfriend and that you were ready to give yourself to me. But I also knew that I was gay. It was wrong of me to use you the way I did when you were such a good boyfriend. And yet I trudged through the relationship in hopes of one day enjoying your embraces and realizing that I couldn't possibly be gay. I soon decided that, although you loved me, I couldn't continue with my deception. You didn't believe me when I said "It's not you; it's me." But it really was me.
