I can’t wait to travel and find out where I want to live.
Being a teenager is hard. But the German home improvement chain Hornbach knows having parents who go the extra mile to show their support can make a big difference.
This is the kind of dad I want to be.
I’m very protective of my girlfriend. I also try to be the polite southern “gentleman” that I was brought up to be around her parents. Well around everybody but you get the drift. Anyways, so her mom said some stuff about homosexuals and her disdain for her daughter’s choices (she didn’t know we are dating). I was caught totally off guard, was quite speechless, and extremely angry. I had a five second window where I thought of walking out. But this is someone that I plan to have to see again and I want her to at least semi-approve of me for her daughter. So I stayed and made dinner. This morning I tried to leave without having to speak to her. It didn’t work. She followed me out and apologized for the things she said. Then she started with more of the same stuff. In short, this time I was prepared. She now knows that; 1: I am gay, 2: I am in love with her daughter, 3: I won’t listen to her narrow minded judgmental beliefs, and 4: I will protect her daughter, even from her. So I had a pray away the gay/good man in a storm moment.
I wanted to go right then and buy a ring and make my Feisty Pants mine forever. But I calmed down and came to my senses. All in due time, she will be my wife when the timing is right. I love her with all that I am and all that I hope to ever be. She is my future and I hope that her mom can be a part of that. And that I don’t ever feel the urge to punch her in the throat. You can say what you want about me, I’ll be okay, I’ll get over it. But never, never talk ill of my girlfriend or how she chooses to be happy.
"I was raised to be a good man in a storm. Raised to love my country. To love my family. To protect the things I love. I’m a good man in a storm. And I protect the things that I love. Not that I need to. She doesn’t need it. She’s strong, and caring, and honorable. She’s who you raised her to be."
