I had been single for several years and, honestly, so focused on my career that I didn’t have time for a relationship in my life.
One afternoon, I made plans to go have dinner with my one friend and his husband in Elizabethtown, PA. Throughout the day, we communicated what time we were planning to go and my friend, Doug, suggested that he would pick me up on his way there as he would be near my house visiting another friend in the afternoon.
When Doug pulled in my driveway, he had brought his friend, Ricky, with him. We all travelled to Elizabethtown together and Doug’s husband, Steve, met us there after his work day. Over dinner, we all talked and Ricky and I got to know one another. Ricky and I immediately hit it off and I felt like I had met the person I had been missing in my life. We began spending a great deal of time together and our relationship had quickly begun.
It has now been six months and I cannot imagine my life without Ricky. I can say with complete certainty that he has been the missing piece in my life. He is my biggest supporter and my biggest fan, my rock and my strength, my rationality and my reason.
I love him with all my heart and I cannot wait to see where life takes us as a couple. Ricky is not just my boyfriend or partner; he is my future husband and my forever man.
