I’m not a big fan of hooking up with someone when I’m on my period. It’s not because I’m worried about my partner being grossed out or anything. It’s because I personally feel gross when I’m on my period and don’t want anyone up in my business when I feel miserable.
But sometimes your period is a big jerk and shows up when it’s not convenient for you. Sometimes you get your period when you’re in class. Sometimes you get it when you’re wearing a white mini skirt (looking at you Emma Nelson). Sometimes you think you’re in the clear, but you’re hooking up with someone and HELLO AUNT FLOW. Ugh. FML.
If you’ve ever gotten your period mid-hookup, you’ve def had these 10 thoughts:
1. Alright, yes! This is ~happening~
Bow chicka wow wow!
2. Why is he stopping?
“I think you’re, um… bleeding.”
3. OH MY GOD.
NO NO NO NO NO NO.
4. NO. OMG. PLEASE DON’T FREAK OUT BECAUSE I AM FREAKING OUT.
I HAVE LOST ALL OF MY ABILITY TO EVEN.
5. Is he laughing?!
He better not be laughing. This is not funny.
6. He’s totally grossed out.
He’s saying he’s not, but his face says otherwise!
7. If he’s grossed out by this, then he is a tool.
Like, periods happen. They’re normal. I am not ashamed!
8. I need to take a shower. I can’t deal with this.
I feel disgusting.
9. Please leave.
Seriously, can you go now? And bring me some chocolate? Thanks.
10. This is the worst thing that has ever happened.
Game over. I’m done.
