She discovered, quite accidentally, with a little help from me, that she prefers women to men. Meet Lover Boo, who's in her late 20s, independent, has a full-time job and everything else a woman her age wants and needs.
She broke up with her fiance because bi-curiosity was not just a thought but a possibility and at arm's reach. Meet Virgin Boo, in her mid 20s, caught up between divorced parents, has a full-time job and was almost going to marry a guy who goes out of his way to show his love for her.
Then they met. Lover Boo, with her constant need to be loved, and Virgin Boo, untouched so far. They fell in love. They broke up with their respective boyfriends and started seeing each other. One blissful year and some of hot, steamy sex, heart-to-heart conversations, perfect dates, joyous celebrations and almost drama-free quality time, things can only get better, right? Not in their case. To be more precise, not in Virgin Boo's case.
Virgin Boo is now having second thoughts. She no longer thinks that she's cut out for a cock-free life. Not that she wants any cock either. Her stress over family issues gave way to her insecurities. Blowing hot and cold seems her only way to hide her anxieties. Lover Boo is blaming herself because she thinks she's not loving Virgin Boo enough. So starts her quest to prove to Virgin Boo how much she loves her. But it's not working.
Virgin Boo claims that she needs time and space. Lover Boo agrees. She backs off. Weeks gone by, Lover Boo tries to talk to Virgin Boo. VB clams up and won't say a word. Now they just exchange gloomy looks across their office desks (they work for the same company). Lover Boo is desperate and on the verge of becoming suicidal. Virgin Boo won't talk.
From lovers to strangers in the space of a few months...
Now I ask you my beautiful readers, what should Lover Boo do? Cut her losses and move on? Or keep waiting...?
P.S: I'm not Lover Boo. She's a close friend of mine and my heart breaks for her. I've listened to her rants and offered a few encouraging words here and there. But I believe I'm not doing enough. Help please!
