Hi all! Just wanted to introduce myself. I’ve been a lurker for a while and you all seem so warm and friendly I decided to buzz on in.
I’ve been with my bf for about a year now. Quick story – we met at a mutual friend’s xmas party in 2010. I’d brought bacon cookies (yes, as awesome as they sound) and when he tried one, he instantly proposed 😉 I laughed, we talked and really connected over the course of the ngiht. I didn’t see him for another month and a half, but when we saw each other again at one of his gigs (he’s a musician), we both just knew. We spent an amazing two weeks together…and then I had to leave town for 3 months for work (I’m an actor). I couldn’t ask him to wait for me but really hoped he would.
While I was gone we started writing emails and texting all the time. Two weeks after I’d left he sent me a “good luck on your first day of rehearsal” package with a sweet card, bacon bits and a package of cookies (with a note that said “this is as close to bacon cookies as I can make”). He also sent me beautiful white roses for my opening night.
It was a long three months, but Skype helped, and our emails got more and more epic. When I got back to town, we were inseparable. He is the most kind, supportive, loving and sensitive man I’ve ever met and I feel so lucky to have him in my life 🙂 We’ve both been through a lot with previous relationships (him going through a divorce and me in a horribly emotionally abusive relationship), so when we found each other and we fit so well, it was a no-brainer.
We’ve lived together for six months now and are constantly talking about our future plans. We’ve made no definite plans yet but are hoping to be married and starting the rest of our life together in the next year or two. We’re both 30 so I feel the clock ticking, but I’m not worried. I’m just enjoying being with the love of my life while I wait. (not to say that I don’t spend many hours on this site dreaming about rings and dresses and stuff!)
Anyway, that’s my story. Happy to be joining the hive!
