Hey Laura, I just wanted to tell you: you’re the most amazing person I’ve ever met and I love you so much.
She’s never asked me which one I prefer, been insecure about me going gay clubbing or listened to those who told her ‘it’s just a phase.’ But by far one of the biggest things I have to thank her for is being cool with what I’m doing right now.

First let me say that I met my best friend when he was unsure of himself.
