Hi Brian. This is such a significant story for me to read. As a heterosexual woman in her late 60’s it is sometimes hard to understand alternate sexualities. I came from a strict family and there was no dating until I had my education. I didn’t doubt I was straight but wondered if there was anyone for me. Most of my friends got married right after nursing school and I hadn’t even met anyone I wanted to be with. I met the love of my life at 22 and married him 3 years later. As soon as I met him there was this attraction and I knew he was the one. 42 years later we are still, if not more, in love and attracted to one another. Thank you for an understanding that while we are all the same our responses are unique.
