After many hours and drafts, I have FINALLY chosen post #1!!
Here goes …
The fiance and I met in high school. We were in a fall semester computer applications class, and he sat right behind me. I immediately had a huge crush on him (can you blame me?)! Sadly, he was too busy trying to date my friends.. so what does my high schooler self do? I act like a child and annoy the crap out of him. Every.single.day. I would unplug at LEAST one of his computer cords.. whether it was for his mouse or keyboard… I did it. I wanted him to notice me, and he sure did. He was SO annoyed with me! Not only did the teacher notice and humiliate me, he still went on his merry way of dating my friends. After the awhile I had my friend who sat right next to him give him my number. Now, realizing this happened many years ago (Fall of 2011) The order of minor details might be off.. and I apologize.
Back to the story…
He eventually asked me out on a movie date (Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows). Being the insecure girl I was, I refused to eat popcorn and candy as “I don’t eat junk food”. I should probably mention.. That quote has come back to haunt me many times… we still laugh about it today :). I did get something during that date… a $4 bottle of water.. that I will NEVER live down. The next morning I called(or texted) and broke up with him, he tried calling and talking about it but I was set in stone. I didn’t want to date that weirdo. In my defense, he was a different person. Little did I know he would eventually be my prom date, then my Fiance!
Flash forward to 2013, and I am in need of a prom date. I sat with my mom(an dad) for hours debating who to ask, and trying to picture who I would do the Grand March with. My mom offered up Fiance… she told me to message him and see what he would think about going to prom. “Heyy, wanna go to prom??” I believe was my exact message. What seemed like an eternity later he finally said yes, as long as we would go as a couple (I wasn’t going to argue).
Not very long after we started dating I realized I loved him. I knew in my heart he was the guy I wanted to spend forever with. Four years later, many hours driving to the others’ college for visits, countless memories… and we are engaged and planning our wedding!
Can you believe it??
In order to refrain from turning my first post into a novel I kept some details and amazing memories out.. like our (second) first date <3.
We went bowling… I spent HOURS getting ready.. I had never done that.. but I picked my most attractive top and jeans, did my hair and went bowling! I don’t remember much.. other than him catching me checking him out.. multiple times.. and the nice long talk we had after we bowled while we watched people rock climb.. but I do remember him throwing the ball backwards… he claims (still) that it slipped out of his hands. Thank god I was watching… I still giggle at that date!
A LOT has changed since that bowling date. We live together ( for almost a year now), both have college degrees, live in a different state and moving in a week to another state.. but one thing has held strong, and grown… our love and compassion for one another. They (the people of the internet) say you get one true love and soulmate, I am SO thankful we found each other early on. I wouldn’t want to go through the past 4+ years and our future with anyone else. He truly is my best friend, soulmate, the love of my life and my biggest supporter. I cannot wait to marry this man! ❤
