A lot of my family doesn't really know about the nature of my relationship, though several have met my boyfriend. The few who do know have started to treat me very differently, to the point where I don't want to be around them, especially if I'm with my boyfriend.
I called one of my closest friends on a night where I was having a rough time, missing my boyfriend a lot, and I was in tears. When I told her about my relationship she said "You need to end it" and wouldn't even talk to me about it anymore.
