She’s 23, I’m 25 and we’ve been friends since we were 18.
For the last five years, she was in a relationship with a complete waster. All he wanted to do was game with his friends.
When they split in April, I thought I’d finally have a chance to tell her how I feel.
But last week, at a dinner with all our friends, she came out as gay. She also revealed she’s dating a girl from work.
