Maureen & Lori
Lori and I met when she came in to interview at my place of business. She started working there a couple of weeks later, and as it is a small office we had ample opportunity to get to know each other.
She was in a relationship at that point and was very open about her sexuality. Because of my family situation, I was still pretty closeted about mine.
We went on a business trip together and had the opportunity to talk in depth and I told her I was gay.
Her relationship was already going downhill, so when she became single I was going to wait a bit before attempting anything, however she beat me to the punch in early February.
We now live AND work together, and have adopted a cat named “Boo”. I have finally come out to my entire family and encountered some hostility… however, her family has welcomed me with open arms.
