There is an old gay cliche that you can spot the bottoms in the bar because they throw their arms above their heads when dancing.

Klaine soulmate AU | Blaine Anderson moved to New York after finishing high school, hoping he’s gonna finally meet his soulmate, Kurt E. Hummel. Weeks go by, and finally he meets the love of his life, but he needs to find out that Kurt already has a soulmate - and it’s not Blaine.
Blaine is heartbroken, but never shows it to Kurt, who soon becomes his friend. Kurt is excited to find out that Blaine found his soulmate, but he doesn’t know the name on Blaine’s body. After some more weeks Kurt finally confronts Blaine about his mood swings and secrets, and then Blaine tells him the truth: Kurt is his soulmate, but he’s not Kurt’s.
Kurt tells him that he doesn’t care about his old soulmate anymore, he never felt like they belonged to each other, something was always off with the relationship, and that he feels so much closer to Blaine, even though he doesn’t have his name on himself. After spending the night together, he asks Blaine to look at his back, where Blaine finds his own name instead of the other guy’s. Kurt’s soulmate mark changed through the night, making Blaine his new soulmate.
When you’re scared and alone, just know that I’m already home.

This could have gone so wrong
Nothing goes wrong in Canada
I’ve been waiting for this to come across my dash again (or at least a variant of it.) The interesting thing about the comparison of these two scenes is that the first time Blaine’s insecurities come up, Kurt reassures him and then smiles like he’s fixed everything. Like it was one small hiccup, and now everything’s going to be okay. But now, with these same insecurities coming up over and over again, with Blaine so convinced that Kurt’s going to jump ship the moment something better comes along, Kurt’s not smiling anymore. He knows it isn’t over. I don’t think he quite knows what to do about it yet, but he’s aware that this is a bigger problem than he could’ve ever believed at first, and hopefully he’s going to try to figure out a way to help and support Blaine.
(Sidenote: I’ve seen a lot of stuff on my dash about what Kurt is doing and what Blaine is doing and is Kurt doing things right to make Blaine feel secure and is Blaine doing things right to try to understand how Kurt feels about him and are they doing enough to make themselves work and… It feels like blame, a lot of it, and I’m having a hard time with that because first off: Kurt’s awkwardness with his feelings isn’t any more Blaine’s fault than Blaine’s insecurity is Kurt’s, and second, it presupposes that if they do the right things, that they can fix each other, that Kurt can emote right — whatever that is — and that Blaine can be totally secure forever, and that’s not how these things work! I mean, did we learn nothing from Will and Emma? They are always going to have these problems. They can learn to recognize what their individual problems are, work past their innate defensiveness about those problems and be open — “I’m doing the thing again, you’ll have to be patient with me” — and try to work past the bad moments/weeks/years together, but that takes a fucking lifetime to learn, and they’re both barely twenty.
(And, you know, it’s not enough for Kurt to learn what Blaine’s issues are and for Blaine to learn Kurt’s. Kurt has to learn Kurt’s issues, and Blaine has to learn Blaine’s, or there’s no solution. Kurt could figure out exactly what Blaine’s core wounds are tomorrow, and if he came at Blaine with them, to try to be helpful, it would feel like an attack to Blaine. They have to learn to recognize their own patterns first.
(This post wasn’t meant to go to this place, but I’m just really fucking frustrated that traits that have been part of the characters all along, things that are well-established as predating their relationship and having roots in dozens of other incidents — as well as, probably, a biological basis — are being reduced down to what feels like, to me, a contest as to who is boyfriending better. Because that’s not what this is about! It’s so much more complicated, and it will take so much longer to work through, and that’s why it fucking matters.)
