Roommates. The term drives me crazy.
I know in some circles "roommate" is code word for girlfriend/partner/lady lover who lives with you. I know that when you are trying to introduce your live in girlfriend to your great grandma (who you are not out to) it's easier to say roommate. I know that sometimes when people don't know what to say or feel uncomfortable saying girlfriend/lover/wife/etc they just say roommate.
I know. I get it. I understand the need. I've used the term before myself (the grandma scenario). Still it drives me insane!
It irritates me most when people are uncomfortable and don't know how to classify our relationship out loud. It just makes me feel awkward and weird and dirty.
Maybe I am asking for to much from people. Maybe I should just get over it. Maybe not.
