My (I'm 32f) family takes an annual trip, and for years now, we alternate who pays. This year is my year. I dated a guy for 2 years, and lets just say he was incredibly toxic and I'm in a much better mental state because he was out of my life.
My brother (22m) is gay and has been in a relationship for 6 months, but hadn't introduced his boyfriend to us, this is odd because we'd met his previous boyfriends. As the weeks and months went on, I started to ask constantly why I couldn't meet his boyfriend, I started to worry it was some insane age gap between them or something.
Yesterday my brother jokingly took my phone and ran off, so I jokingly took his phone, which he'd left unlocked. I got curious and looked in his pictures, I saw pictures my ex, I was confused why he would have pics of my ex smiling, then it hit me. I thought my ex was straight so I needed confirmation, I unblocked him on Instagram to see tons of pictures of him and my brother clearly in a relationship.
