The Hills: New Beginnings star penned a candid essay for Elle where she discusses how it went down.

“This past July, I went on vacation with a female friend; the next thing I knew, I was in love with her,” the blogger began.

“It wasn’t quite that simple, of course. But it also wasn’t very complicated, either. 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 realised that I’ve never really had a ‘type.’”

Photos of Cyrus and Carter enjoying a romantic getaway in Italy surfaced in August, shortly after Cyrus split with Liam Hemsworth and Carter split with Jenner.

“As my friend and I spent that August traveling through Europe together and trying to move past our respective break-ups, my first and only romance with a woman was born,” she wrote.

“I fell just as hard for her as I had the older man so many years before. It was that same familiar force of nature; I didn’t have to think about a thing or overanalyse. It just happened and it felt exactly right. Reflecting back on our three-year friendship, I realised 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.”

Carter added that her relationship with Cyrus, which ended in September, wasn’t just a “summer fling” or a “same-sex affair.”

“While it was short-lived, I’ll remain eternally grateful to my most recent relationship for opening my eyes to this unexplored part of myself, and for inspiring a new level of self-discovery and wonder at all the possibilities of life,” she wrote.

“I’ve been forced to get to know myself in a far deeper way than ever before, and not just in terms of my sexual preferences. I’ve also been forced to reckon with who I am as a person.”

Carter concluded that she doesn’t feel like she’s “in a place to label [her] sexuality one way or another.”

“I’m still exploring and figuring out. It’s been interesting to watch friends and strangers alike assume I’ll automatically revert to being attracted to men, as if they’re more familiar with my sexuality than I am,” she explained. “Even I don’t entirely understand what my experience this summer means for me going forward—and it’s my experience.”

Following their split, Cyrus famously moved on with Aussie singer Cody Simpson who appear to be very much in love, if their social media activity is anything to go by.
