I am a 18 year old who lives in X who goes to college in X, and I love you. I read your blog religiously. I have this problem in my life and was wondering if you, your friends, or maybe your readers have any advice. My girlfriend is currently a senior at the high school I went to before heading off for college. She doesn't turn 18 for another several months. In February she came out to her mom and told her about our relationship. Her mothers reaction was throwing up and saying how disgusting we are. Took her phone, computer, car, the works in hopes to keep us from still being together. Of course this is the 21st century and we still had ways of communicating, about a month ago she got her phone and computer back, and things have been going nicely for us in out little secret relationship again.
Her mom finally agreed that she could come to the same college I am at, believing we don't talk anymore and that my gf had no interest in talking to me again. It is the only way we knew how to get what we wanted. Anyways, her mom's fiance was snooping on her computer the other day and got onto her email and found a message from me. It was actually only a corrected paper I had edited for her, but my name showed up so suddenly all hell was set loose again. So of course the phone is gone again, as is the computer. I get home from college soon and have very little clue as to how to deal with all this. My gf is completely lost right now, not sure if she should be looking for loans for next year, or how she could get one at all for school, how to try and make peace with her mom without having to break up, it is a mess.
Has anyone ever been through something like is?
How do people do it?!
I know it is a large story, with no real way to be solved or fixed I just don't have any gay mentor to look to and ask advice from.
Thank you for all you do, you're wonderful
