How to Kiss Like in

We Met At A Potluck

Share Your Story: How did you meet your partner?

By marilynndiller

Where I met my partner?

At a COE potluck.....a monthly gathering of women, mostly lesbian who share their stories, life with others and find out what is going on in the local community for monthly events. My partner and I were intrigued with each other through looks and in our personalities....it was awesome. It seemed we were the only ones present...spent the whole evening talking, laughing, sharing with each other. We knew we would like to see more of each other. I was invited to a party afterwards so I invited her to go with me. She did. We began to kiss and couldn't stop....she wanted more....a few nights later we both joined hearts.

How we fell in love

We both realized that we loved each other when we were coming back from a pride event. I was asked how I felt when I met so many of her exes. I looked at her and said they were the most stupid people I had ever met. How could they not see the beautiful person that was in my arms. I told her I loved her and would never leave her, no matter what. I told her I wanted to grow old with her. I wanted to celebrate a 50th with her. We have been together close to one year and I fall in love with her over and over again, even after some major disagreements. She knows that I am hers, monogamous, and ready to forgive when it is needed. I love her completely. She is my first and last love....it is possible!


  • It does exist....you have to be what you want from another and willing to love, no matter what, be committed to them and believe in them, love unconditionally, be forgiving, look beyond the moment into your future together. Build great communication and respect with one another. Remember why you want to be with her everyday, never take her for granted. You are worth being loved, so act it. Tell her why you chose her, why you want to be with her. Let her be herself.
