Still dating dad
She recently lost a parent figure, and like with my mother, it was unexpected.
I leaned into him hard those next few months, and he became the solid body next to me I could grab and cry into.I hung a postcard that said, “Learn the art of solitude.Get to know yourself” and another that said “We get to make ourselves and we get to make our family” on my fridge.(My sister-in-law was quick to ask, “Are you sure you’re not on a dating app for adult orphans?” She‘s a morbid one, but witty as hell.)I went on to date a married couple who became my good friends as well as sexual partners.
