I basically told my Dad that I was having sleepovers that included light petting to making out with different men in the last few months but that there was no intercourse at all. Why? Because I don’t like sleeping alone, and I feel less lonely even though I’m spending time with men that will never love me.
And he just blinked, smiled like a deer in the headlights and responded,
"Ok sweetie, just don’t do anything you will regret and…don’t think you’re ever alone."
Understanding fathers for the win. The reason I feel comfortable telling my parents anything.
