Double A’s family immigrated to the United States from Belfast when he was nineteen. The move was motivated by a desire to escape the violence from civil unrest. Double A has achieved the American Dream. He became a citizen, graduated from college, achieved professional success and is financially sound. He owns two homes along with two cars. He’s had several significant relationships but has been single for about eight years.
Double A has kept in touch with a childhood friend in Belfast. He’s known the guy since he was ten years old. They talk on the phone every Sunday. They have an odd history of never being single at the same time until recently. The guy is visiting Denver for two weeks to see if he wants to move here and develop a relationship with Double A. That’s the basis for my reference to Double A’s mail-order husband in the previous post.
While they have a lot in common, things are not going well. I’m not sure if it’s a case of unrealistic expectations, or, if the guys have become set in their ways. The guy will not be moving to Denver. Double A is counting down the days until the guy returns to Belfast. Double A will continue to be an unmarried man.
