"Who cares? It's our kitchen on a Monday night. I love you and I want to touch you and have you be excited about that. Is that so wrong?" He is starting to back away, the grooves on this path worn in a rut we fall into so easily.

I miss the days when gay men had to approach each other in-person and at least pretend to be interested in more than "Top or bottom?" and "Hung?"
