Andrew and Dominic – Our Story – When I Knew I Was in Love

After Dominic and I spent out first night together, I had to leave on a business trip.  The following morning, I packed and got on a plane to Mexico City.  It was a very busy week.  At the time I was working for a retailer and we were opening a store in the central city.  By the time I got on the plane for the return trip, I was so happy to be coming home, I can’t describe it.  Dominic and I had a date night scheduled for the Friday after I got home and we had a very nice time.  It was fun and I cooked breakfast Saturday morning.  (Sorry that’s all the detail you get.  Dominic has sworn me to secrecy about any of the sexy details)  Then I took Dominic to work.

By the time to got home I wasn’t feeling well and went to rest, figuring I was tired.  It was more than that.  I stayed in bed all say Sunday and on Monday morning I could barely get up.  I called the doctor and they got me on all kinds of medication which helped.  On Tuesday I was still tired and hurting, but food was staying down again.

Wednesday afternoon I received a call form Dominic to invite me over for dinner.  I told him about how sick I was and he told me I should come over anyway.  I drove over and when I knocked on the door, Dominic answered and guided me inside the apartment which smelled of chicken soup.  He settled me on the sofa and I ended up lying down while he finished cooking.  He fed me this glorious soup and then beside me as I lay on his sofa for the rest of the evening, rubbing my stomach which had been through hell.  They say that the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach and Dominic proved that in more ways than one.

    How very sweet, Andrew. Mr. SM did something like that for me when we were going out. I’d promised to drive up to see him in Idaho when I was in Arizona. It was an 11 hour drive. When I arrived, he had dinner waiting for me. He brought me inside, handed me a plate, and sat with me for dinner. I was so excited and thrilled. It was the perfect ending to a rough day. Sounds the same here. 🙂

    Thank you for sharing your life. It always amazes me how sweet you both are with each other. Dominic is a wonderful caregiver. Is he the romantic one in the relationship or are you equals with each other? God truly blessed you both when he brought you together. Hus sheila

    That reminds me of when my husband and I had been dating for a few months. He ended up getting food poisoning, and basically crashed on my futon, since the doc didn’t want him to be alone. I’m loving these accounts of your relationship. Gives me warm fuzziness, reminding me of when Nate and I started to date!
