I took this picture of myself last night. It was not easy to get my iPhone to stick to the ceiling and get the pose just right... Most of the time I sleep alone. I don't like it, but I guess I am getting used to it. I am not sleeping alone tonight. Today is Wednesday and T will be coming after work to my house. I am going to make dinner for him, though I don't know exactly what that will be yet. All he has asked for is that I have the bread he likes. I can do that. We have been watching the "Amazing Race" together. The new season started a few week ago, and we are a week behind, but it's all safely on the DVR. I look forward to that each time he comes. I know it's a simple and maybe even boring thing to most people. It means the world to me. It's something we can share together. I don't watch the episodes without him.
After dinner we will curl up together in my bed, turn off the lights and watch together. Last week we had a few snack. He likes a little something salty and a little something sweet after dinner. To show how much I love him, I let him eat chips in my bed. He was very careful not to get crumbs under the covers. :) Last week it was not so hard for him to come, because he had not been in a while. This week will be harder. I think he will get more crap and I will have to support him. Like all couples we will have challenges to deal with. Our's are different from most couple, but I'll bet most gay couple face different challenges than straight couples. The important thing is that we will face the challenges together.
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.
