This week I am going back to black and white basics and sharing a little more of myself so that we can hopefully get to know each other more. Today I am covering my relationship <3. My boyfriend is super private (unlike me) so I really haven’t posted much about us yet! Make sure to read more below to get the scoop on our relationship as well as this amazing Boohoo Official top!
T and I met when I was working as a leasing agent for an apartment complex. He was going through a tough breakup and needed a new apartment asap. He was a pretty easy sell and he moved in three days later! I was in a relationship at the time and thought he was really cute, but neither of us were in a position to date. When my ex boyfriend and I broke up, the girls in the office all starting thinking of ways they could get T to come into the office so that I could tell him the ‘I’m single again’ news! The plan was drawn up and executed perfectly. At the time we were doing a parking sticker audit and we already had T’s (but he didn’t know that). I emailed him asking how he was doing, said we need to catch up, and said that we needed his parking sticker number when he had the chance. Well, instead of just shooting it back to me in an email, he brought it into the office as well as a business card with his cell phone number written on the back. So, I can always say that the relationship started BECAUSE OF ME :).
It took us a long time to actually start dating. We started really slow and just met at different places for a drink or appetizer around where we lived (yes, we both lived in the same complex that I worked in.. in separate apartments of course). I never suggest this haha! It was weird knowing when he was home and when he wasn’t. Eventually we were smitten and after a couple of months had keys to each other’s apartments. I would walk home from work and my favorite cereal (Captain Crunch) would be sitting in the hallway along with chocolates and a new gallon of milk would be in the fridge. He would leave me all kinds of love letters on my car and surprises in my apartment. I would bake cookies and have someone on the maintenance team leave them in front of his door, knock, and then run whenever he was home!! So if you are single and don’t believe this can happen to you, IT CAN. They are still amazing men out there for you!
We had our first meet up a year and a half ago today exactly! I still get surprises and occasional love notes and I still send him cookies every now and then ;). We are definitely in it for the long run and I couldn’t picture myself with anyone else. My closest friends tell me this is the first time I am 100% myself. I guess I had a problem of molding to who I thought they wanted me to be. I am 28 and I can tell you chivalry is not dead, and there IS someone out there for you (it may just not be the right time). I had such a time frame when I was younger. According to that I should be married with two kids by now. What was I thinking?! Stop counting the days and focus on yourself. You won’t find HIM until you find YOURSELF.
