Darin & Eric
We met online. I was nervous about the whole online dating thing. Eric asked me out several times and I said no. We continued to talk for a few months before I finally decided to ask him to go bowling. I knew Eric was special when he texted me after our date and told me he really wished he had tried to kiss me, but he wanted to be a gentleman. Now after 1.5 years of dating, we are engaged thanks to the voters of Washington State who voted to approve Referendum 74 and legalize same sex marriage!
Racheldawn & Jenica
Jenica and I were best friends from middle school and high school in a very small Kansas country town. She and I were inseparable. We lost touch over the years but one day I found her on Facebook and sent her a message not knowing she had come out in college like myself. We now live together in Pennsylvania. We are proof that you can fall in love with your best friend!
