That was a big concern for me. The possibility of him not seeing the toxicity. We had it happen once and that is a situation I'd be glad not to revisit.
The talk has made me feel a deeper connection which is hard to believe because we are so close already. It's great. I have found that I need not be afraid of his attractions are my own because they don't mean what we have is lacking or will end. It's actually helping me embrace my bi side instead of shrink away from him and avoid friendships with girls so I don't feel "wrong."
