"I love you and I wish you every possible happiness."


Well, that *is* what I most of all want to say.


And if that didn't send him running terrified for the hills, I'd continue:

"I love you, I love Jack, I love the both of you immensely. You belong together. You have a lot of support as a couple. Forget about the past and grab on to the present with everything you've got!"

First I would tell him that being a sexual minority is not a death sentence...

Hmm.  Thing is, "sexual minority" is a pretty contemporary term...   ;)


"Condiments aisle"
"The whuh?"
"Uh, ketchup"

"Sexual minority"
"The whuh?"
"Uh, queer"

very moving.

It was interesting to read this, since today during my lunchbreak I made doodles on a paper and all of a sudden I was writing a letter to Ennis and Jack. It started with "I love you both"

What a great question!  I have thought about this a lot.  I'd invite Ennis out for a beer, and we'd reminisce and talk about Jack, and I'd tell Ennis how much Jack loved him, and that I'm sure Jack must have known that Ennis loved him too.   Also I'd tell him to not be afraid of taking chances in life, and to be happy.   And if he ever needs someone to talk to or listen, he could give me a call anytime!  ;)

I would tell Ennis at the time of the reunion, to grab with open arms and hands, the key which will  make all his todays his tomorrows. I would explain when he gave me the whuh ! expression, that no one can make their partner happy if they are so unhappy themselves. I would ask him to relive the kiss  and the pure joy he felt at that time,then tell him it could be like that always.

I am going to give this some thought and come back. I think I have this gut feeling of what I would say, but putting it into a reality, that would require some thought.

Ennis,

Deep down you know that this thing between you two is no little, trivial passing thing.  You know it.

You will not have him forever.  Seriously.  You won't.  One day you'll wake up and find that he is no longer around.
Tell him how you really feel about him.  I know it is difficult to say the words, but try.  Write a letter if you have to.
And if you can't do that - write him a note, with only a few words and stick it in his bag the next time you go camping together.
Do whatever you have to do.  Just be sure to tell him how you feel. 
Trust me, he wants to know.

I would probably say something like umhniumhn with a lot of mumble and then some more umhniumhn with a big smile  :D

hopefully he would answer me with a umhniumhn sound, and we would understand.

What a wonderful thread (and question for the thread)!  :D  I'm sitting here at work, thoroughly enjoying all these responses.  I'll have to ponder some more before I submit a real answer to this question.  But, for now I wanted to say that this thread reminds me of how much I love the Brokie community.
