Tonight I met T and his family for dinner. As usual, they were all nice to me and made be feel welcome, even thought I did not understand much of what they were saying. After dinner we went back to his house.
We settled on his couch. He did his paperwork and I forced him to watch "Deadliest Catch". I was sitting close to him absently rubbing his back (under his shirt). When he was finished with his work he sunk back into the couch. I moved over put my head on his chest. I closed my eyes. I could hear his heart beating. I could hear his breathing. He put his arms around me.
I started to tear up, but just a little. I had what I have always wanted. I had a man who really, truly loves me for me and I loved him too. In that instant, I was home. I was content. I was happy being absorbed in his warm embrace.
I am gay man in his 40's who was married for 18 years to a straight woman, who is still my very best friend. We have 4 children together. She is now remarried and we still want to be supportive of each other and make a stable family for our kids.
