It was St. Patty's Day weekend and I was downtown during a bar crawl with a few friends I used to work with. I never even had the slightest inkling what was in store for me that night.
After a few drinks two mutual friends told me to stop by the bar they were at because they had a guy they wanted me to meet. I assumed the worst since the last few months had been filled with let downs, but I missed see the two friends so i headed over. I promised a ONE drink max to the people i was with and we would be out of there.
Little did I know that I would spend the rest of the night sitting a table talking to the person who would change my life.
A year ago today I met Dave.
Three days after meeting we went on by far the perfect date (one day maybe I will share that story). A very short time after that date I was hooked.
hook-line & sinker.
I cannot believe it has been a year. Some days it feels like we just met because I just look at him and I get those butterflies all over again. I think "i cannot believe he is mine". I have never felt this lucky in the entirety of my life. But then other days it feels like we have been together much longer because I feel so incredibly comfortable with him.
Many months ago, I just l felt it.
We were meant to be.
He brings out the best in me and i like to think the same about me for him.
Words cannot describe how happy I am with him. I have never felt secure in a relationship like I do with D. I am never worried that after we bicker that he is going to leave me. I am never afraid that he is going to flirt with next girl at the bar. I know that what we have is strong and they we are both willing to work and fight for it.
The future doesn't scare me. I am not instantly thinking of compromises I am going to have to make. The world (in the most cliche saying ever) is our oyster and I cannot wait to experience more of life with him.
I always wanted to find someone who tells me I am beautiful everyday and actually makes me feel it. I never thought I would.
