- Wedding: August 2012
When we had our first date, we were 16 years old. FI wrote me a msg on msn asking me if I would ever consider going on a date with him. At the time, I barely knew him.. I knew he was in a couple of my classes and that he had added me to msn a couple of days earlier. I wasn’t sure at first, just had a break up after dating a real jerk (3 week relationship lol),…. but figured..what’s the harm? Maybe I’ll make a new friend.
I was big into sports and had a couple of practices that evening..so our date couldn’t start till 9 30 pm when I would finally be showered and ready to go. He picked me up .. I jumped into the car.. and immediately he started making conversation. He asked me if I liked the band ” the red hot chilli peppers” and their song ” under the bridge”. He then played it and started singing to it. Even though it’s quite unconventional..that song is still “our song” to this day.
We didn’t have time to do dinner…so we went to the most afwul place (IMO) that you can go for a first date… we went to the movies. A place where you can’t talk. Right away, he swung his arm around me. The movie was called ” the truth about charlie” and still to this day, I could not describe one thing that happened in the movie or even what it was about. I just remember freaking out inside that I was so close to this guy, and that it felt so right. Halfway through the movie, he kissed my cheek. I turned to face him. Then we kissed again.
When he went to drive me home… he drove by my street .. (he still says it was on purpose) so we still had a few minutes to chat. It was really nice and I remember feeling really giddy when he dropped me off.
Thus began our beautiful friendship..and relationship.
