I Met My Partner at Diesel.
I love Diesel. I’ve loved Diesel since I was in High School (in New York) and would come to Boston to visit my girlfriend. We spent many nights hanging at Diesel. I’ve lived in Somerville for almost 10 years now, and spent many mornings, afternoons, and evenings hanging out at Diesel or grabbing a quick bite/beverage while on the go. I love Diesel and I love Somerville.
I got sober 3.5 years ago, and coffee shops became my new best friend. I started spending even more time at Diesel. In addition to being a safe queer space for me – it became a safe sober space too. It’s rare these days to find a safe sober queer space – so I am so grateful that Diesel exists!
Once I was sober for a bit I started dating. I met this cute guy on a dating site and we had our first date at Diesel. We’re both bisexual/pansexual and he’s trans. We got married last fall and I couldn’t be happier. Thank you for bringing me the love of my life!
