i'm glad it's over now tbh

i remember when i was still dating guys before i came out, and like this one dude i was talking to used to call/text me all the time and ask me to come over to his house and i would ask him like “how interested in me are you, really? like do you actually want me to come over??” and he would try to play it cool and act like he wasn’t excited to hang out with me and like??? !!!!if you really like someone you can admit that you like spending time with them!!!! it doesn’t make you less of a man to be hyped about seeing someone that you’re dating!!! why is masculinity so fragile??? lmao
