Left – “Well…we-“
Right – “Yeah! We are!”
“How’d you guys meet?”
Left – “He stalked me on my way to work.”
Right – “Yeah, he was walking down Market St., and I was riding my bicycle. And I jumped off my bike and started walking with him and talking with him.”
Left – “I told my friend at work that this guy kept following me to work so then I called him ‘Stalker Dave’.”
Right – “He called me ‘Stalker Dave’ for the longest time.”
Left – “That was like 6, 7 years ago.”
Right – “Then like 3 months ago he contacted and said ‘Hey, I wanna go out country dancing. So we went out dancing and now we spend all our time together.”
Left – “Oh my.”
Right – “Haha, ‘oh my’ he says!”

“How long you two been together?”
Him – “About 6 months.”
Her – “Not even, I’d say 4. It’s a pretty crazy story though.”
“Let’s hear it.”
Him – “We met on Instagram. My picture got posted on a beard site-
Her – “Wait, let me tell it-
Him – “Ok-”
Her – “So I saw his picture on Instagram and said, ‘Holy crap, you’re so handsome, I wish I didn’t leave Michigan-”
Him – “That’s where I live, and where she’s from. And I said, ‘You’re gorgeous, I wish you didn’t leave too’. And she looks and sees my Facebook page link on my Instagram-”
Her – “And I had only just gotten a Facebook page because I wanted to get a Tinder. So then I go like all his pictures on his Facebook page like a creep-”
Him – “And then she sends me a message saying, ‘you seem like a cool guy, text me’. So I do and BOOM, non-stop texting for a week”
Her – “And after a couple weeks we started Skype-ing-”
Him – “Then after a month she came out to Michigan to visit. She’s been out to Michigan about 4 times and now this is my first time coming to San Francisco.”

Him – “I love that she’s so easy going. Everything I do with her feels natural. There are no freak out moments.”
Her – “Even though I got stung by a bee today. That was kinda freak out.”
Him – “Yeah, but it still was fine.”
Her – “It was fine. I only scared because I had never been stung before.”
Him – “A lot of relationships feel like someone is always trying to cause drama or get attention. We just give each other attention. All we do is care.”

    I was a left wing activist in the Haight some of us had turned a Victorian on Oak st into a community center our main program was a child care Center especially for women who wanted to work but couldn’t afford child care. We were free if they got a job. One of our friends in the community said he met a woman who wanted to work with children. One day in 76 as i sauntered down Haight st he ran out of a coffee shop called the Grand Piano and said the woman was inside. He went in and got her to come out, she has lived in the shikh ashram a block up. . He said John meet Raksha Kaur i asked whats that mean she said princess of protection, i said i need that. Her innocent smile and freckles got to me. That was 40 years and 7 children ago,
