When I was 13 I naively entered into an online relationship with somebody who i beleived to be a 14 year old boy. 2 years later i found out that it was infact a gender confused girl, i was heartbroken and all contact ended. I found it so hard to begin with and was in denial, for one reason or another we got back into contact and over time i have forgiven her for lying and have found myself falling in love with her again. I'm not a lesbian and see her as a male as she does, I have realised that when it comes to true love it really doesn't matter what that person looks like or what gender they are. we are both nearly 18 now I have secretly met up with her on many occaisions and we speak on the phone every night, she has recently started treatment which will ultimately lead to her having gender reassignment surgery. The problem is both our parents forbid any contact with eachother, if my family found out how much i have betrayed them they would be so hurt and they mean so much to me. I try to make it more romantic by comparing our situation to romeo and juliet but sometimes it gets too difficult.
