Believe me when I say if I could have chosen I wouldn't choose to be gay...
I love my partner with all my heart and I wouldn't change my life now. But if someone had said to me "you can have *your dp* and a house and a few kids" or "you can have *man* and a house and a few kids" 3 years ago I would have chosen the latter.
My life would be so different and so much easier if I was attracted to men.
But of course, there's no way I'd change anything now. I'm just grateful that I found love, and wasn't too scared to give it a go even though I didn't expect to fall in love with a woman.
