"This is me and my girlfriend Rebecca. We met back in September through friends, and we have been together ever since. Having a relationship with a girl when you are a girl is tough. A lot of people talk, family, friends, strangers. But I learned not to care about what people think. As long as I'm happy that's all that matters. She accepts me for me, she doesn't care about the makeup, hair, etc. She thinks I'm beautiful no matter what.

We have only been together almost 5 months, and this will be our first Valentine's Day. Though, it will be different for our first year. We are having an early Valentine's Day because I have to be with my grandfather the weekend who is battling cancer, and I am the only family member able to look after him while we are both out of town. Rebecca has been by my side the last 5 weeks during this long process. I don't know what I would have done if I didn't have her."
