But the Cherry On Top thing to happen for me in 1991 was on July 28th. I had just started a new job waiting tables at a really nice restaurant and I was spending a LOT of time with my friend Bruce. We had soooo much in common and we could really make each other laugh, so much so that we spent hours giggling at our thoughts and sayings. We had been friends for a few years because we had the same circle of friends. But something was happening with us. Although I had my own apartment, I found myself at his house quite a bit just hanging out and watching the occasional hockey game. But that night, that Tuesday night all those years ago everything changed. And it changed for the better. What started out as an innocent night just watching reruns of Hunter on TV turned into the night we realized that our feelings for each other could no longer be hidden.
Sitting in a chair together, a moment came when we had just finished laughing and the silence was awkward. Looking at each other, he leaned in and kissed me. That was it! I was done! I knew in that moment that there need not be another man in my life. Bruce was THE ONE I had been longing for and on that night I knew I had found the person I wanted to spend forever with!
