Kristen Stewart -- The Truth about Falling in Love with the Same Sex

I recently logged into Facebook and noticed that Kristin Stewart was trending.  Why you ask? Because she’s in love with another woman.  So many people are intrigued by this and I get it, I do.  You wonder how after years of being attracted to men, and dating men, does someone decide to date a female?

I asked a friend of mine, in a similar situation to tell us her story.  Here it is:

A little over a year ago, I was starting to talk to a coworker more and more often.  I guess you could say we became best friends. 

Well a short while after this friendship began, she unexpectedly kissed me at a bar.  I was taken a back, you could even say I was angry.  What the hell was that? We’re just friends and I like guys. Country boys if you want to be exact. I’m not young so I know what I’m attracted to. You don’t just wake up and find you’re attracted to the opposite gender over night.

Well that is kind of what happened.  I mean, it wasn’t that quick.  After a couple weeks of not really talking to each other we talked about what happened.  It was slow moving then but to make a long story short, we fell in love.

I was wrong. You can identify as straight.  You can believe you will have that “ideal” life with a husband, children and a picket fence. But you might be wrong.

So back to the aforementioned question.  How, after years of being attracted to men, do you decide to fall in love with a woman? Simple.  No really it is just that simple. It’s not a decision.

I think one of the most interesting statements I have heard since I’ve fallen for this amazing, kind hearted woman is “I never fell in love with my best friend. It doesn’t make sense.”

My response to straight people who don’t get it?  Remember that time you first saw your boyfriend or girlfriend, husband or wife?  Remember the first time you wanted to kiss them? Remember the first moment you knew you wanted to spend the rest of your life with them? Could you now imagine your life without them? Was it a decision to fall for them?

Well I remember the first time I met her.  I remember the first time I wanted to kiss her.  I remember the first time I realized she would be the person I spent the rest of my life with. 

It wasn’t truly just a friendship from day one.  It was the beginning of something more.

Why does it matter that this person is female?

Maybe we need to put less pressure on the person when it comes to love.  Religion, gender, race, etc. Maybe it’s more important that there is love.  This world is a scary hateful place sometimes and I’ve found a safe place with someone who will be by my side through thick and thin. 

We love each other.  What else matters?
