My friend and neighbor Gypsy had been trying to convert me into a Dr Who fan and several other scifi shows for years now, and back in 2005 she took me to a Dr Who meetup at Swift’s where I met Lou and other fanatics. He was an acquaintence I kept in touch with through facebook, and this spring he had the nerve to ask me out. He said that he had wanted to kiss me the first night we met, and I was very taken with that.
We’ve been seeing each other on weekends since May, and have been through a lot in just a few short months. We’ve are there for each other emotionally as we both are being much needed family for one another, and are making a good fit this way. He’s wonderfully sensitive, sentimental and romantic and he makes me cry so easily…in a good way, as I haven’t been in a real relatioship in so long I didn’t think I’d ever be in one again my gratitude just pours out in tears. Because of my current situation, we’ve exchanged keys last week, and Lou has met some of my cousins on Christmas.
This was the kind of love I’d been looking for. The kind that will be there for you as a friend with deep affection and emotional support and security. To nuzzle quietly like two great bears, and not be embarrassed to be human (to fart, blelch, show emotion) and be comfortable in our own skin… and see each other as beautiful souls. 16 months ago
