Dani put up her cheek and with great clumsiness I kissed it. Problem one: how many? Here in the south, it is normally two; three in Normandy; and sometimes four in Paris. Normally, when you meet a friend and again when you part, but if they do something special you give another top-up thank-you kiss. One day I met a grandmother and granddaughter and, having kissed Mamie, I went to kiss the petite and she turned away.
Yes, but only at New Year or special occasions. They have been happily married for 43 years, so reckon they must be doing something right. Growing up there definitely had a detrimental effect on my sexuality. It was religious, conservative and rural, and there was nowhere to go if you were gay, no outreach and no hangouts. There were no gay people, and if it was mentioned, it was always in derogatory terms. You grow up gay, thinking that it is the worst thing of all. The kiss that night showed me that everyone was wrong.
It felt so right, so sexy and, most importantly, so natural. After some small talk, I just went for it. We had this long, lingering kiss and I never felt anything like it before. It was amazing. I struggled with it and became quite detached from everyone and everything. I was holding out for this new life in Dublin and assumed that when I came out my family would want nothing more to do with me. Luckily, that was not the case at all. It was the normalcy of it that gave it its importance.
In that moment, I went from being afraid of being who I really was to accepting it. It just felt right. He hopes to find his Mr Right in the modern Dublin dating landscape. My first was my daughter, Katie, now 12; and then there was my son, Maxime, now seven.
I could not have imagined the overwhelming love that I felt after they were born. All your atoms align for one moment, and all the love was pouring out of me on to these little bundles. It is mindblowing and very scary, meeting this little human that you helped to make.

I waited for nine months to meet these little people — talked to them, sang to them, rubbed my belly, and that moment was the cherry on top. The floor goes from beneath you and you are suspended by this incredibly strong urge to love and take care of this little beauty. Of course, all mums know it is really not like that.

Then there are days when they say something so beautiful and profound in absolute innocence that it makes you smile, and for that it is totally worthwhile. Angeline Ball is a Dublin-born actor and singer. She lives in London and is mother to Katie and Maxime. She likes to play the guitar and sometimes the fool. I grew up in 27 Annesley Park in Ranelagh, my grandparents lived in 29, and I met Robbie at a party in 25, where he was then living. He opened the door and I knew that second he was the guy for me.
We are total opposites and have per cent nothing in common, but we fell deeply in love and work well together. After the church we had a drinks reception in our house and hopped on the Luas for the reception in Fallon and Byrne, which was just brilliant. I love being married. It is a symbol of unity and really cemented us and our baby girl, Charlotte, together as a family.
I think the key to a happy relationship is liking each other. Robbie and I still go on dates that last for hours, and I love that we are great pals as well as husband and wife.

Her idea of romance is home-made sandwiches and tea on top of a mountain. As she walked in the door my heart was fluttering and we were almost shy with each other, but before she had even put her bags down we shared a long, gorgeous kiss. We hit it off immediately and talked about the upcoming marriage referendum, which was really important to us.
