So what now? How will he react? Well, it turns out he's [[MilhollandRelationshipMoment perfectly okay with it]] (well, for the most part) and completely understands. That's right, as a reward for your sacrifices, the PowersThatBe will make sure that you end up with a truly noble and loving soul who loves you for who you are and doesn't care what you are. So no worries! And besides, he might have been in the same boat as you.

So you are a freak of nature, a witch, a SuperHero, or a ChosenOne. You are loaded with supernatural powers, and between going to work or [[WakeUpGoToSchoolSaveTheWorld school]] you have some world saving duties to attend to that need to be kept secret. And on top of that, you also need to balance it out with a love life!

But you can't tell your boyfriend about it! He'd freak out and leave you, or worse. But then, you can't keep it a secret forever, either. At some point, one of your supernatural incidents will inevitably happen exactly when you were having a romantic dinner. Or maybe your relationship has simply reached the next level, and you feel that you need to be completely honest with him.

* {{Subverted}} (although this may be a retrospective way of seeing it) in ''Webcomic/SluggyFreelance''. Leo seems to be accepting of all the weird things Zoë tells about happening to her - but it turns out that was only because he thought she was lying. In the words of another jerk he hangs out with, "You've got to respect a girl who realizes romantic relationships are based on lies and goes to town with it!" As soon as Leo finds out it was all true, he feels betrayed, and they eventually break off.

* [[http://www.fimfiction.net/story/106068/1/relax/intimacy Relax]] is an extremely heartwarming example. Why? Because the couple, Haye and Klee, initially met when the former bought her services as a prostitute. Not only is Haye completely cool with his girlfriend's occupation, but he also pays her just like any other client, despite the fact that she'd definitely do it with him for free.
