as a lesbian who was in a 5 year relationship that ended a couple of months ago, my advice to fellow gays is to BREAK UP YOUR OWN WAY. when my ex and me broke up, we didn’t know how to navigate it because the model of heterosexual breakups was all that was available – the damage, spitefulness, ignoring each other, moving out straight away and fighting over household objects/pets, talking shit about each other etc. I really pushed for us to do what felt natural to us. after all, the reason we were both sad about breaking up was losing the FRIENDSHIP part of our relationship – so why couldn’t we keep it? it was such a healthy breakup. we only argued once when we were drunk and insecure. we still live together (along with my cousin/housemate). we still catch up on our fav tv shows and order take out. we don’t talk shit about each other. my family and her still chat and we still attend family events together. she still physios for my brothers footy team. we just fell out of love and our relationship turned into a friendship. you don’t HAVE to lose that. do your break ups your own way, gays. don’t look to het relationships to guide you. they suck.
