This is as close as we dare get so soon! LOL
This is David and I on our first real date! We met for the first time in "Real Life" on August 13th 2009.. one yr ago tomorrow. We had been talking on the phone and internet for about 3 months.. before I finally agreed to go out with him. I remember like it was yesterday... I kept putting him off, canceling dates the morning of... saying I would go to stuff when I really had no intention of following through..I don't know what I was thinking! But let me tell you.. THAT ALL CHANGED WHEN I MET HIM IN REAL LIFE! Until I actually met the person behind the voice and the typing.. all was fair in love and war! I actually told him at one point.. He was never going to meet me, and he should give the concert ticket he had bought me to someone else cause I wasn't gonna go. The night of the concert, I ended up going to (our third date) was our first kiss! Gosh.. If I could go back I wouldn't have been so LAME! Anyways.. He text me about 9 am in the middle of the week and asked me if I wanted to meet him for lunch on my break... because he randomly had the day off for a dentist appt. I remember telling my mom "well I ran out of excuses...I guess I will have to go." Now that I look back on it.. It wasn't even about David.. It was more about me... It wasn't that I didn't like him, I just actually thought he wouldn't like me. Anyways, So I met him really close to my office at a little teriyaki place. I remember driving up and not wanting to get out of the car. I was on the phone with Katie and she talked me into it.. seriously..I don't know why I was so nervous. I drove around the parking lot, debating if I was gonna actually go or just drive away, when he saw me. Soooo I had to park and get out! And things went great.. I really liked him! Shortly after that.. about a week later we went hiking. (pictures above)
I always tell him I like our story, that I was so wrong... and ended up falling in love. That makes it so much more interesting. Gives us character.. hahahah. He says "I was just mean." But whatever you wanna call it.. I have to say it was God's plan, not mine or his!
