I never thought I’d let a man who doesn’t drink tea put his penis inside me

There are some things I thought were important in potential boyfriend, but now I’ve realised they aren’t. Or at least that it’s more complicated than that. I thought it was a deal-breaker that we had the same taste in music. I also thought it was crucial that we had the same taste in TV. I…

I’m happy. (I think.)
