I am a slave in a three year TPE relationship. I have just returned from a visit to the eye doctor who fitted me with brand new glasses. I had no idea what I had been missing! The only problem now is what I look at Master, I can actually see his face and it turns out he is a terribly unattractive man (pictures attached). When we started dating he was a blurry blob. Now with my new glasses I can see what a hideous and foul specimen he is. I mean, part ape, part downs syndrome. He doesn’t have all his teeth either. I am not sure how I missed any of this!
Help me Annie! What do I do?
Was Blind, Now I See in Sarasota
I was going to chastise you for being superficial and tell you that you should be ashamed of yourself. Then I looked at the picture you sent and I really couldn’t bring myself to do it. You were generous in your assessment. I am not even sure that thing is human.
Unfortunately, I can’t advise you to drop him either. When I looked at the picture of the two of you together, I could easily see how he could write exactly the same letter you did.
It appears you are made for each other. I take it you haven’t looked in the mirror with your new glasses on yet. When you do, remember this number 1-800-273-8255. It is the national suicide prevention hotline, I think you are going to need it.
I am already feeling the need to cleanse my eyes with bleach.
The only advice I have is that you perform a ritual blinding of each other. Even though what you have seen can’t be unseen, it will pass with time. Until then, I recommend blindfolds, 24/7.
