A few months ago I met Roberta while attending a coaching conference in downtown Portland. After a few drinks, she asked if she could come over to my place. I wasn't sure at first, because it had been so long since anyone had been there, but I agreed. In the morning, I woke to see the bed empty, and I was sure she had left. Then I heard the sound of coffee grinding in the kitchen. I went in there and found she had made breakfast. At that moment I fell in love. We've been together ever since.
