How to decode a profile

By Evan Marc Katz

One thing that most online daters can agree on is this: Sometimes, a profile isn’t as revealing about its owner as we’d like it to be.

Love and Equality: A Success Story

Love and Equality: A Success Story

It seemed like everyone had an opinion about our future, but we always knew that we belonged together.

Every so often we’d make plans, but something always got in the way.

However, over the last year or so we started getting closer. This time it felt different. It felt right. It felt like things were finally coming together.

Then one morning in June, we could tell that magic was in the air. We decided to make it official — and finally say “I do”, just like every loving couple deserves to.

We’re so happy that our dreams, and the dreams of millions, will finally become a reality.

Love was all I ever needed, and today, I’m so proud to say that #LoveWins.

Sincerely,

Equality
