Erica & Jamie
We met in the lunch line at A. Philip Randolph, way back in 1998. We were “the gay couple” in our highschool. It wasn’t as hard to “come out” as I had thought. Anyway, she had to switch schools during senior year. We lost touch.
Jamie and we reunited while I was working as a cashier at a clothing store. The firworkds were still there. I couldn’t have been more blown away than I was at that moment.
Here it is, now 10 years later and she still can make me blush. So, after a few months of debating rather or not to come back out of the closet… I looked her up and we picked up RIGHT where we left off.
Jamie proposed to me (down on one knee and all) Friday, October 22, 2010. I said, “Yes!”. Of course!
Now, we are planning a wedding for December 2012.
Hopefully we can become NY residents or it’s off to Massachusetts.
