I had dinner last night with James and Craig and learned about how they met:

Craig had hosted a dinner for gay doctors at his home and James was a doctoral student at the time and attended. They didn't talk much, but did run into each other a week later and sat talking for hours.

Three months later, during a trip together to Vegas, James talked about his rent renewal being due. Craig simply asked, "Shouldn't we first talk about moving in together?" Within eight months of meeting, they set up a home together.

James told me that during his residency (a grueling process), Craig never missed bringing dinner to him (3x/week for a year) and sitting together in the car as they ate.

Craig and James have been together for 5+ years.

And now something completely (kind of) different...

I'm not sure if it's the robitussin I took this morning or if that animation really was that trippy...

Your post, on the other hand, was beautiful. By the way, Brian and I moved in after a week and got married after a month of knowing each other, and our fifteenth anniversary is in April. Of course, I had to move in with him because my mom kicked me out and burned all of my possessions, but that's another story. (And no, I'm not kidding.)
