- Wedding: March 2014
I have to say… I’ve been on the Hive for about a month now and I haven’t heard of anyone else with a similar story.
I was 25 and I’d NEVER been on a date. Never had a crush, never got close to it. I had been extremely overweight and had no confidence and never thought I’d find a partner. Then I had lapband surgery, and had lost 30kg in about six months. And my flatmate dared me to try Aussie dating site RSVP (she was giving it a go too, and her friend was in a relationship with a guy she found on there).
So the first day I sign up and start searching and I find this profile for a man I literally started drooling over. So I sent him a “kiss” (first contact) and he replied! There started four days of emails & texts before we finally got to meet.
First date – we met at a chocolate shop, and talked for four hours straight and would have stayed there forever if it hadn’t been late and time to head home. I received my first ever kiss on the train platform, and FH asked if I believed in love at first sight.
Within weeks we were inseparable, six weeks later we went on our first overnight trip (and I lost my V!). When I went home to NZ for two weeks without him, we knew we had to be together forever. Even two weeks felt like forever!
Eight months later I moved into FH’s newly bought & renovated unit and ten days shy of our first anniversary, he got down on one knee and asked me to spend the rest of my life for him. I can’t say it was a huge surprise… we’d been talking about it since before our six month anniversary! lol.
And… FH had never been in a relationship either. So we got the joy of experiencing all these “firsts” together, for the first time for each of us. Truly magical discovering the joy of falling in love and planning our life together.
So yep, I’m marrying my first love and my only ever partner. It’s absolutely crazy, awesome, unbelievable, amazing. Makes up for being 25 before all this happened! And neither of us have to deal with exes either.
Anyone else in a similar situation?
