I was in a DADT relationship that ended abruptly because his primary partner decided she needed to close the relationship for a while and have all of his attention. After that, I decided I wouldn’t to put myself out there again in a relationship in which I had no say. It hurt, alot.

I believed and trusted him about the honesty of their relationship, we talked very frankly about STI status and safer sex practices, but I didn’t really understand when he said “she comes first,” how that would impact my heart.
