Well today is the day I have dreaded for the better part of 3 months. Melvin is leaving back for the Dominican Republic and short of me visiting there, I will never see him again. I knew when I met him that he'd be leaving, I thought I would have had fun, which I did, but I did not expect to fall in love (which we both did). He stayed with me last night and we talked and drank wine until 3:30, then had a slow, late morning until 10:00 when I had to leave for work. I would say I had the most intimate sex of my entire life. He told me he loves me. I said the same. I said that I was glad I met him. We exchanged some gifts and also exchanged thousands of photos and Mp3s. We spent the better part of 12 hours holding each other and talking. It was lovely. I am being strong, have not felt hurt or whatnot, but I am also at work and around people. We'll see how I do in a few days.
