How is it possible to get into a relationship with someone that you don't even like?
I met Florian when the South Florida Gay Men's Chorus performed at our church. He was a Cute Young Thing, a fencing champion back in high school, handsome, with a firm, hairy chest, a little too tall for my tastes. But his extremely upbeat personality won me over:
"Isn't a beautiful day? Of course, every day in Florida is beautiful, isn't it? Gosh, it just doesn't get any better than this, does it? Welcome to Paradise!"
Our First Date
Picking me up: "I didn't know if you gave me the right address or not. If you didn't, that would have been ok. I had a marvelous evening planned, either way. What a fantastic house! And the decor is fabulous!"
Dinner: "This is the best crab quesadilla I've ever had! And, oh, gosh, this salad is marvelous! And aren't the waiters gorgeous? I've never had such a fabulous meal!"
The Filling Station: "Isn't that guy hot! And him, too! I've never seen so many gorgeous guys in one place before! It's like a Mr. Universe contest! I can see why you like coming here! It's the best!"
Back to my house: "This is the most wonderful evening I've ever had! You are positively incredible! I can't believe how lucky I am just to be sitting here beside you!"
The kiss: He leaned in for a kiss -- with a wide grin on his face. You never smile when preparing to kiss! It looks idiotic.
