Early in sophomore year of college 1984
Here I am. [Guy of the moment] isn't what I really want. [First long-term relationship] is. Gentle, beautiful, not too butch or too much of a partyer. He is very like me. And yet different enough to help me grow. I don't feel like I have to make plans about forever with him. We have some political differences. I think he thinks things through more than I, either that or he doesn't think them through in a different way.
For [First long-term relationship]:
