I thought this post was fitting for this week. Today is our 4 year anniversary. I wrote this 2 1/2 years ago on March 29, 2011. Since then, The Guy has become more to me than I could have even imagined. Four years of marriage has been an adventure. I'm thankful he came into my life every day.
Four years ago in February, I was sitting alone in my house. I had three dogs, two sisters, and no direction. I realized that the men I had dated were not what was good for me and I was going to have to do something differently if I wanted to change that. I signed up for Lava Life the next day.
I knew if I didn't, I was going to live in the spinster house forever.
After chatting with a few different people, I ran across Woodrow (later know to you as The Guy). His comments were witty, his grammar decent and his picture flattering. We decided to meet for coffee to see if the online matched with the real life.
Here is an account of our first date.
Thankfully, we continued to see each other. Each date was better than the last. Although, there was a brief hiccup when a friend teased me about our upcoming third date so much I got a migraine from the worry that The Guy would be angry if I didn't put out. (Just so you know: I didn't and he wasn't.)
It was our fifth date that I knew I was done for. We walked across the room and he gently rested his hand on my lower back. Right then, I was caught. The thought of being without him was more than I could bear, so I knew I had to keep him.
I'm so very glad I did.
He has become my court jester, my champion, my mind reader, my best friend.
Now, if only he'd be my Sugar Daddy too.
