The Love Story...
Love always finds its way when it’s meant to be! Kenny and Jason grew up in the same city of Syracuse, USA. Before they fell madly in love, they were friends for years. Their friendship was becoming stronger and survived the distance and all challenges. They also studied at the same university.
Jason remembers their first encounter..."I have always been a big fan of poetry and romantic books; I often used to go the library just to enjoy the atmosphere, it was so quaint! That’s where we first met. There was a reading group every Tuesday night. I didn’t even know I was attracted to guys at that time. We started to see each other more often, jogged together, and played tennis together. We both love nature, hiking, and taking boat trips on the Ontario Lake. That's how we discovered our attraction for men, more or less together.
Jason relives the beginnings of their love story..."Kenny always had the most handsome boyfriends! When he moved to New York City for a new job at a bank, I remember being so sad about it. Then we started seeing each other a little less. However, I was following his adventures on social media - new friends, new life, and also a new lover. It seemed like he was with the man of his dreams! But, one night, all of a sudden, he called me crying and said they ended their relationship, and he needed me! It felt like good old times. I was so surprised and happy that he called me! I booked my ticket right away, and the next day, I met Kenny at his favorite cafe in Chelsea, NY. He was sitting on his own, clearly having cried before, he had a plate with donuts that he was stuffing in his mouth without much conviction, like a sad kid! Despite the apparent despair on his face, Kenny was a handsome man, both confident and fragile. We hugged each other for 30 seconds. He bust into tears and told me how happy he was to see me and that I traveled all the way after the time spent apart. My heart was pounding, and I had a goose bumps looking into his eyes! That’s exactly when I realized I always loved him, and that my deepest wish was to stay with him forever and protect him. It was an electric feeling, like I got zapped, and suddenly I realized everything was about to change in a big way. At that moment, we both knew what was happening.
We started ‘dating’, which was a little strange for us at the beginning, as we knew each other so well. When you start to date your best friend, you gain a lot: a protector, undeniable confidence, and a feverish determination to make the relationship work.
