The Happiest Man In The World

Perfect timing is everything. As I planned how I would ask BD if he’d give me the opportunity to spend the remaining days of my life trying to make him happy, the anxiety was rapidly building. When should I ask him? Where should I ask him? …alone or with friends present? In the end I chose a quaint little spot we enjoy that feels like home – Cowgirl. I invited two of his closest friends and one from my tight knit group and VOILA – the stage was set. The first day of my favorite season combined with the holiday that celebrates two key assets of BD – loyalty and commitment to his son – Father’s Day, made today the perfect day. I don’t know if BD actually knew what was happening, but my stomach had been sick with the jitters for days. After taking our seat and having the surprise of seeing his friends, I proceeded to ask and he accepted. As Beyonce’s Single Ladies says, “If you like it then you should have put a ring on it…” I love it and I did. Baby, thank you for making me the happiest man in the world. I love you. A special thank-you to Baz, Maria and Slugger for sharing in our special day. Having the ones you love celebrate your commitment to your soul mate – PRICELESS!

On Blast
How do you view commitment – a celebration of soul sharing or social exile?

Keep passin’ the open windows…

Tonight you took my breath away. I never expected this. I thought this was an evening out. Instead it wound up being so much more that I'll remember and treasure for the rest of my life.
Here's to us.
I love you. xoxoxo

OMG!!! I am so excited for you two. Keep it up.

Our community needs to see and hear more about two men holding down a relationship like this. We tend to focus on the promiscuousness of being a single man when we should also see how some ameliorate their lives by finding a godsend.
