Thursday night there was gay event called "Take the Lake". It was at a new bar/restaurant right on the water of a huge lake. I was nervous about it, but I knew I was going to go for 2 reasons.
First, T was going with me, and he would not easily let me back out of it.
Second, I told my boss at work (lets call him "Mike") that I would be there and he said he would be there. I also told him that I was bringing T. Since I talk about T a lot with Mike, I really wanted him to meet T. Also since I talk about work to T, I wanted T to meet him too.
We arranged to meet at a book store not far from the bar where the event was. He was running a little late because of the traffic on the interstate that time of day. When he showed up we drove together to the bar, after a quick kiss in the parking lot. :-)
When we pulled in I was looking for cars I recognized. I saw Mike's. Then I saw Mike. He had just arrived. He waited and the three of us walked in together. I did not see anyone I knew from the office. Mike, who has gone to these things before, did not really see anyone either.
I had a couple of beers (T does not drink) and the three of us talked, mostly me and Mike talking about shit that happens in the office. After a while we had dinner. After we sat down, another guy I had seen around the office sat down to chat. He knew Mike and we did introductions all the way around. We chatted for a while and it was really fun.
After dinner, we left. It was almost 8:00. Mike when his way and T and I left together to go back to where he had left his car.
I had a really good time, and I think T did too. I did not, make a bunch of new connections, but I made at least one.
Next Tuesday, I will have another chance. There is a gay professional Meet Up group meeting for a dinner and I still plan to go to that.
Tonight I am going to T's house for a visit. Can't wait to see him.
