  •  I did too (12+ / 0-)

    In high school I dated a guy. We both have since come out. It wasn't hiding - neither of us were aware (this was the 60s) of what the word was for people like us, just that we are different. And we genuinely liked each other, and had common interests, and fun together. I wish him nothing but the best. I can joke now about how it must have been unacknowledged gaydar but you know, there was also love. Yes, an unaware teen lesbian can love an unaware teen gay boy and vice versa, yes, two people can care for each other in many different ways. Jason may have genuinely cared for Carolyn, but the reason it dragged out for 8 years was that he probably knew, although he could not acknowledge why, that she wasn't "the one".  To call him names because of this is just looking for something nasty to say. Just for the sake of saying something nasty.
