- Wedding: April 2013
(be warned, this will be lengthy)
A little back story:
I joined the bee almost 2 years ago – not as a bride (not even thinking about to it really) but as someone who, on the one hand was helping a bride and on the other was starting to attend many weddings and needed help with some etiquette. Long story short, the bride’s wedding I was helping out with was “postponed” indefinately until a few months ago the engagement was called off (sad but irrelavant to this post). In any case, I was on here for like 3 months before I got too busy with school, work, relationship and various other little unpleasant surprises that life brings and was forced to leave. Lately, I’ve sort of started to lurk.
Today I make my official return to the bee! I’m not yet engaged but here’s my story anyway:
Sophmore year of college I ended up sitting in lecture hall next to a pretty cool guy (let’s call him Rob). Nice to hang out with but really not my type, nor was I his. But, we became pretty good friends – good enough to consistently sit next to eachother during lecture. One day, right before class, Rob’s friend stopped by to pick something up from him – I didn’t really pay much attention at the time. Next time at lecture however, Rob tells me – “Hey, remember that guy that stopped by here the other day? He really liked you, can I give him your number?” I was hesitant about that but I agreed to give him my email and AIM name. Eventually we started chatting and a bit after that mystery guy invited me to the movies. The date did not go well – we said our awkward good byes and that was going to be it. However, I figured that movies did not make for a good first date so I called him almost immeditely after pulling out of the parking lot, mentioned that there was a 24 hour diner not too far away, would he like to get some coffee. And so, Mr. Roo came into my life.
We have been together ever since (almost 4 years), we’ve been living together for a little over a year now and are talking about buying a house together around the end of this year (coincidentally, one of the conditions on which I agreed to this plan is an engagement prior to purchase – thus, I’m not waiting… simply enjoying the last few months of being boyfriend and girlfriend )
In any case, that’s my story in a nutshell and I felt I needed to share it as I never got a chance to do so previously. Also this is my (awefully long) way of saying hello!
