- Wedding: June 2014
It all starts back in grade school . I was in grade 5 and he came to the school in grade 6. We hung out with some of the same kids but never with eachother, I always thought he and another older kid were the cutest in the school. Came to highschool and again same deal. He started dating my best friend at the time when I was in grade 9 , he in 10. That’s when we started to hang out once in a while . He was always nice to me , never mean and I always remembered his sexy smile ! I remember the day my best friend came up to me and said ” I wanna dump him but I dunno how cause he’s such a nice guy/ good b/f “. I remember thinking ” girl your crazy”. Well he went through some tough shit and moved away ( about 4 hours ) from home, We kept in touch through the years , and grew to know that eachother loved music equally more than anything. So we talked mostly about that , the concerts we went to , the fun, the friends. the relationships. Off and on he’d flirt with me on line and comment on my pictures . When I worked at my first job my friend had said to me ” he really likes you, he’s cute , you should go for it , you two would be so cute together” . But I quickly turned on that and said ” he lives too far “. I was never one of those long distance kinda gals. I would go fishing one to two times a year with my dad a couple cities over from where he lived at the time but never ended up travelling there to see him and he never came back to our home city. But we still kept in good touch and he randomly confessed to really liking me saying ” he would wifey me ” . I thought he was joking. He also serenaded me over the computer playing Everlong on the acoustic and made me templates of my favourite band. I ended up dating this HUGE jerk whom I thought I loved but was only lust. Dated the jerk for a little over a year but me and the sweet one still kept in touch . Finally we decided I was coming to see him and it took a concert to get me there ! One of my favourite bands was playing and what better time ? We were both so excited. Especially him , he was counting down the days and would call me at night and we would talk for hours. He asked me what kinds of foods I like the best. I took a bus and met him in Toronto ( I didn’t know where I was going and had to get to the city where he lived which took an hour). He met me at 5 am in toronto with two coffees in hand, I was quite nervous because I hadn’t seen him in years ( it had been like 5 years or more ) . He was so perfect. He confessed to jammin out to janet jackson on his skateboard on the way to the train. We took the GO train all the way to his city and while on that we shared our new musical interests. We got back and hung out at his place ( I loved his friends , they are all great guys ! ) He made us steak with my fav asparagus !!! and made my absolute favourite chocolate covered strawberries !!! No one had ever done that for me. DELICIOUS ! Finally it came to night and we headed back to Toronto for the concert. I was realllly liking him ALOT . We started to hit it off so well , I was wearing his sweater and laying my head on him by the end of that train ride. But let me tell you it took my whole chicken ass to do it !!! We were all having so much fun already. We got to the concert my favourite band didn’t end up performing but I was having such a great time I didn’t care. When the last band came on he wrapped his arms around my waist and I thought I was going to melt into the ground. What an incredible show. After that we walked back to the station and I grabbed his hand. I couldn’t help but want to be right next to him. When we got back to his house we lay in bed starring , I was waiting for him to kiss me but he didn’t he looked like he was pearing into my soul! lol i finally decided to break it and went in to kiss him. It was perfect. From then on we were hooked on eachother. We were so lovey dovey the whole weekend. When I went back home he went with me to catch my bus in toronto. I think we were both afraid it might end. We texted back and forth and both agreed that we wanted to be together. I was still in school and went back and forth to see him when I had a few days off. I knew this was unlike anything I had ever had or ever could have. We were perfect for eachother and no one ever treated me like he did/ has . A little over a month later after several times already, I went and visited him again. Previously he confessed over the phone that he was legit going to come down and propose to me just before I had gotten with the jerk. I did not beleive him. So when I went and visited him after that I called him on it one night after hanging out with his friend having fun and jammin some acoustic. We were all alone and he pulls out the suit he was going to wear. I still called bullshit … the he pulls out his grandmothers ring, in a box from a jewelry store and says he had to get a box for it. He pulled out the ring and asked me to marry him ! Call me crazy but I said yes ( also knowing we couldn’t get married right away anyway ) . I had never felt like this , I knew it truely was the real deal. He is perfect. We have our ups and downs like everyone else but he’s so sweet to me and does things for me no one else would. And I knew the way he looked at me and told me he loved me , he meant it and still does. We’ve been engaged for 3 years now and getting married next year !
