Happy New Year, Patreon

Happy New Year to all! I do hope you had a safe but thoroughly fun New Year’s Eve and are now nursing your hangovers happy to see that we’ve left 2017 behind us. While I’m one of those types who actively tries to find the good in everything, there’s no denying that 2017 was a bit of a dumpster fire, no matter how you identify or where you stand.

Sure, I’d dated before then, but I had always dated dudes ...
