So my partner and I have been together for a little over a year now and 98% of that time has been spent travelling/living in close intimate proximity. I have grown to accept her peculiarities to the point that i find them intoxicatingly endearing. HOWEVVER the more serious i feel about us and the more im loving the bajeezus out of her, the more i have this urge to "come out" about my DLism. I have read every article and bit of advice i could find and have had virtual conversations out the wazoo where i prepped myself to drop the bombshell as casually and naturally as possible from any conversational angle that presents itself. If I had ONE qualm about her it would be that it is damn near impossible to get into a linear conversation where she will delve deeply into subjects of a personal nature (be it hers or mine). Its hard enough to guage her possible reception let alone feel confident that she would be willing to stay on the subject, once broached, long enough to learn about what it means to me, how i feel, and how it has impacted my life. She also isnt one to show vulnerability so getting to that point where i can feel open enough in the conversation to slip the wedge in there is exponentially nerve wracking. Thoughts?
