Yes, We ARE Together.

Both K and I got to go on dates tonight with our respective boyfriends.  I have been home for a while, but because on the drive home from T's house I drank 2 bottles to soda to help me stay awake, I am now still awake.  I figured I would make good use of my time.

AJ's daughter came to our house to watch my younger kids so K and AJ could go back to his house.  My older kids got some action movie and sequestered themselves up in their bedroom.  K made dinner for him and I suspect did some other cooking too.

I met T at his office.  We went out for a really nice dinner at a place I had never been to before, but he has several times.  Most of the time when we go out, T makes me choose the place where we go. He does this for 2 reasons.  First, he really wants me to enjoy where we go and second, he does not really care about food that much.  He is just glad we are together.  Where we actually go it quite a ways down his priority list.

What I liked was he pick a place that he liked and he wanted to share that experience with me.  That really means a lot to me and I had a great time.  

As we were leaving he told me he noticed a woman watching us over her menu.  He figured she knew we were there as a couple. I generally don't care about that sort of thing and I told him that.  But he pointed out something that was different about tonight.  I think to be gay and go out as a couple, you need to have a certain I-don't-give-a-shit-what-you-think kind of attitude.  If you don't, I think the fear of being discovered would take the fun out of everything.  T said we usually have that attitude, but tonight was different.  For tonight, it felt like we were the only people in that restaurant.  We were so absorbed in each other, there was almost no notice of anything else.

After dinner we... well...  My mother reads this blog from time to time, so I am not going to say what we did next.

Suffice it to say, it was a night to remember.

Two guys can't have dinner together? If they do they're gay? What if you were two co-workers on a business trip?

These other people in the restaurant have nothing better to do than spy on the other patrons?
