Carter penned an essay for Elle in which she opened up about her ongoing journey to discover her sexuality and said their relationship was the real deal.
“This past July, I went on vacation with a female friend; the next thing I knew, I was in love with her,” writes Carter, who didn’t specifically name Cyrus. “It wasn’t quite that simple, of course. But it also wasn’t very complicated, either.”
She continues, “Until that trip, it had never crossed my mind that I was even capable of loving a woman the way I loved her. But after reflecting on my romantic history, I realized that I’ve never really had a ‘type.’”
Carter, 31, and Cyrus, 26, broke up in September after their brief romance — fresh off Carter’s split from Brody Jenner and Cyrus’ separation from husband Liam Hemsworth. Since her relationship with Carter ended, Cyrus has moved on with Australian singer Cody Simpson.
Although Carter and Cyrus weren’t meant to last, the “Hills: New Beginnings” star reiterated the profound impact the relationship had on her life.
“Although the relationship with my friend was often referenced in the media as merely a ‘summer fling’ or a ‘same-sex affair,’ it was so much more than that,” Carter writes. “This was a profound journey of self-discovery. For the first time, I listened to myself, forgot about the ‘norm’, and lived.”
The two were longtime friends before taking the next step, which caught Carter by surprise when it initially happened.
“I didn’t have to think about a thing or overanalyze,” she explains. “It just happened and it felt exactly right. Reflecting back on our three-year friendship, I realized I’d always been drawn to her in a way I wasn’t with other friends, but until that trip it had never crossed my mind to think of her in a romantic sense.”
