Had dinner with MBA Man last night. He told me vacation stories and we talked about life. It was nice. It occurred to me it was the first time we had gotten together one on one in over three years. I guess that is the way of things when friends are in relationships. Times change.
It is interesting how our dynamic has changed over the last several months since I came out to him. Some of our conversation topics are the same, but others are very different. There is an added comfort now to address topics neither of us would have touched before. I think it is the change that comes with knowing you are both playing for the same "team." I trust him and he trusts me--I believe there is very little left that we keep from one another. There are still moments when I think "I can't believe what he just told me." But, I'm glad he does--and I'm glad I can be just as open and honest with him.
Everyone should have a friend like that.
