Our meeting is boring, but our ongoing story is incredible.
Spring of 2012.
It’s simple; Meeting through mutual friends. I know right, the least bit romantic coming from me a total romance junkie! But it’s more of the how you fell in love part that is the most important.
After meeting on a night filled with friends and drinks and AJ trying to flirt with me by showing me card tricks (rolling my eyes, the booze was defiantly flowing.) Any chance of hanging out was thrown out the window. AJ was still living up in Saginaw with his college buddies at this point, so here comes the true importance of technology.
Late night texts, random mid-day jokes, it started out as a friendship (Which number one relationship advice, find your best friend!) until AJ came home for a weekend and we decided maybe it was time to hang out one-on-one.
Now let me just say I am a TOTAL over-thinker, I’m completely chill about it when we are planning everything out. Like ok, I can handle hanging out with some food and watching Red Wings hockey (it was almost play-off time). Well when it came time for it, I totally flaked and got so nervous and made up a lame excuse for that night. So scratch that meeting.
Yes, I know.
But I redeemed myself the next day, and it turned out to be movies in the middle of the afternoon before AJ left to go back to Saginaw (thank goodness, right? Almost missed my chance!)
Well, I’m not the only nervous one, because movies turned out to be tension filled, high school type feelings. I don’t care what anyone says, movies as your first date are the scariest. You can’t really talk, you have no idea what the other is thinking about, it’s totally butterfly’s in your stomach filled.
Is he going to hold my hand?
Is he an arm over the shoulder type? PLEASE be a no.
Why isn’t he reaching for my hand!?
Yep! I left with only a hug goodbye, and an unsure feeling but also feeling triumphant that I dragged him to a Nicholas Sparks movie, so at least I had that over him ;).
That was five years ago, and long gone are the nervous should I, or shouldn’t I’s.
But the flutter’s in my stomach, and the shaky how did I end up with him feeling’s are still there and stronger than ever.
I guess that’s good though right, since I’m marrying him ;).
