Gay Pride, Self-Esteem & Jealousy

Written by

pride

Dear Sappho,

I always look forward to Gay Pride Month because of all the parades, parties and gay events that promote pride and acceptance. However, my girlfriend seems to dread them and says it’s because she is jealous of all the beautiful lesbians who make her feel less than beautiful. I am a quasi-gay activist and find it difficult to understand why she fails to get the celebration.

Dearest Sappho,

Do you have a handy list of lesbian deal breakers that could guide some decision making for women who are temporarily blinded by love?

Why I Left You

Written by

broken heart

Dear Sappho,

I read your post My Girlfriend Left Me with great interest being guilty of such a departure my self, I’d like to tell my side of the story. I left while you were at work to avoid the drama and the hurt. I left you because you acted like our relationship was a burden to bear instead of a joy to be savored. I left you cause you couldn’t hear me any more, it was like talking into the wind. I left you because I felt lonely when we were together. I left you because you didn’t take our relationship seriously enough. I left abruptly to keep the cut clean and your memory of me sharp.

You want to know why I left you?  I left you for asking why - instead of knowing why. I left you because I love you too much to make you suffer my neurosis and expectations about love. I didn’t mean to hurt you. I just wanted to wake you up. I didn’t realize you’d go on to fall in love with someone else so quickly. Now that you have, I’m sure I did the right thing, although please know - it did hurt me as much as it hurt you, please forgive me for hurting you.
