My boyfriend and I have been dating for about five months. Since we are in quarantine, we’ve been spending a lot of time together and we’ve gotten pretty close in that short amount of time.
This morning, we had sex before we had gotten out of bed. I had a bit of stomach pain yesterday, but it was still extremely surprising after we finished and I looked down and saw blood. I was immediately embarrassed, I’ve had issues in past relationships with guys who degraded me for the same thing.
He immediately asked me, very nicely, to go ahead and start the shower. I needed a minute to clean up in the bathroom first, and after starting the shower, I noticed he was putting fresh sheets on the bed. I asked if he wanted help cleaning the dirty sheets, he said they were already in the wash. He joined me in the shower, and besides making sure I was okay, completely dropped the whole thing.
I’ve been in similar embarrassing situations before and felt so dirty and ashamed by men who didn’t respect me. I feel so loved by the moment I shared with my boyfriend, even if it wasn’t pleasant. I guess I wanted to share this in case it gave someone hope or brightened their day. There’s no reason to put up with someone if they’re not treating you right, the right person is out there waiting for you 🙂
