So OP has exaggerated the story. They're not in high school but in their mid-20s in the first pic, and the second pic is 18 years later, not 30 years later.
According to the link at R25 it's 18 years later, not 30.
Alright then let's see the REAL 30 years earlier pic.
It's only 18 years between the pics not 30.
Ugs then and ugs now, so really no change, sugar!
Yes, thank you R31 for letting us know. Again. Because half a dozen times is never enough.
And R32, you're welcome to post your pics from 18 years ago and now, along with a story of your long-lasting relationship for all of us to judge. Go ahead. We're waiting.
You're both great and you've both aged well. Really touching seeing those two photos. Ignore the haters and keep on keepin on!
R33 = the couple in question
You guys are both hot, even better with age. The chemistry and love is apparent in your photos. You guys are so lucky.
Ugh! Why would you torture yourself like that! Comparing yourself to when you were in your sexual prime and peak looks?
But sticking it out for 30 years? Ugh! Why would you do that yourself!!!!
(there are too many words in that article. It looks boring)
The top looks interesting, like there is a story to tell behind those eyes. The bottom looks like he's ready to bolt.
Awwww ... I admire people who are in it for the long haul.
You look fine but find a new barber.
18 years ago I was 9, so I wasn't really "dating" at that time. Sorry. And I've got a picture and story for you: FUCK OFF!!!
The one on the left is the bottom, right?
Isn't this the couple that posted that impassioned and eloquent viral article on Chickfila a year ago or so?
It wasn't very eloquent, R43, but it was indeed passionate and correct in its moral outrage. It must have been posted here at least four different times.
Well, the dark-haired guy posted it, yes.
Here's a link to that article if you want to read it again... it still holds up:
Yes, of course. Because our eyes age at the same rate as the rest of you tired asses, baby.
But you do look mahvelous.
Ironic that the bottom chose to get the Hitler YOUTH haircut when he got OLD.
I LOVE YOUR PHOTOS!
You two look so sweet and connected. Thank you for sharing that. (And please ignore the mean girls here).
There should be a rule here against people driving traffic to their own tired blogs. It's
back-door action like this that brought about the rise of Pollyanna Shithead.
Are you wearing the same clothes??
You're both very cute in both sets of pictures. IMO, the blond would look better with longer hair. That current cut is rather severe looking.
OP, you both look fabulous. Don't mind the haters here.
There is a rule against that, R52. That's why he's been banned several times. If this couple tries it again, I'm sure it will happen to them soon enough.
Cute couple then. Both look even better now.
I don't understand why the OP said 30 years later when the first pic was from 1994. The clothes/hairstyles do not match the "30 years ago" time frame.
It's sweet that they've been together that long, but I don't understand the need to exaggerate like that.
R58, I think the OP was just bad at math, or typo'd when he mean to type "20" (which is simple rounding).
Anyway, I think the point that the "30" is incorrect has been made in this thread. Over and over, actually. We really don't need to keep harping on it.
For the record, they're going to be in New Orleans for Pride week, as Wayne (the dark-haired one) is premiering his play "Upstairs" there, on the anniversary of the Upstairs Lounge fire there.
Darling, OP! you both look wonderful.
Love is good against aging! Cute!
He also wrote this great essay on gays and abortion... and why gays should care. It's actually pretty moving:
