Ed & Gary
Gary and I met when it seemed like our worlds were coming to an end. Bad relationships, bad marriage (Gary) made it feel like what’s the sense? Why go on? On the night when we both had possibly cashed out, we both decided seperatly to head to a local straight bar. Grandes, in Wildwood. I was just about getting ready to leave and he walked in the door. Tan and blonde, he jumped started my heart. I couldn’t take my eyes off of him. I just kept staring. He kept staring at me too. Then he motioned for the bartender to send me a drink. I lifted my glass to thank him. I had him at that, I think. The next thing I know, I go around the bar and talk to him. Those blue eyes swept me away. I knew I wanted to be with him. He knew he wanted to be with me. Fate intervened. Living in a tragically straight area, we threw caution to the wind, and had fun in the taxi! That led to fun all night long, and into the next day. We have spent 1 day apart in our 14 years together. I just can’t get enough of him. His positiveness. His ability to make people laugh. He makes the world fall in love with him, they can’t get enough of him. Of us. We want to spend our special day with all of the people that have made us feel so special about our relationship. They have made us grow.
