The Tiny Heart: Letters to My Former Single Self: Week 4

Letters to My Former Single Self: Week 4

I'm linking up with Lisette from Northern Belle Diaries for the last week of Letters to My Former Single Self.

This week's question:
Describe your first date with your now current partner. Did you feel any "butterflies" on your first couple of encounters? Did you have any indication it would later be the "real deal?" 




Dear Sharon,

You "meet" your future hubby on MySpace. You don't think much of it, but then you start talking on the phone and those phone conversations last for hours. You'll have your first date about a month later and by that time, it feels like you already know him. You'll worry about it being a Catfish situation (aka him turning out to be an 80 year old or worse), but phew, he looks just like the photos.

Us back in 2007

On your first date, he drives into the city to meet you for brunch. After french toast, you decide to rent a movie since it's raining outside. We rent Must Love Dogs. (Ironic, since he loves dogs and you better love them too). We talk so much during the movie that we barely even pay attention to it. The date couldn't have gone more perfectly and you can't stop thinking about him when it's over. You won't know at the time that you'll wind up marrying him, but you do know right away that this is something special. 

3 and a half years later and we're engaged...

  
  And a year after that we're married!

  16. You guys met on My Space! Cute! I met the Scot online dating...haha (and I also met a way back boyfriend on Facebook). Your first date is sooo cute. I remember when I went on my first date with the Scot I was super nervous and was obsessively texting a friend about how nervous I was...haha.

  23. I love reading other people's love stories! And Sharon: YOU ARE SUCH A BEAUTIFUL BRIDE!

    As someone who is almost a foot and a half shorter than my husband, I love seeing other couples who are also "vertically" challenged. This might be TMI, but my husband says that everything evens out once we get "horizontal!" Sorry, he still loves his 8th grade humor.

    Thanks so much for sharing these stories, I've absolutely loved getting to know your love story.

  43. First off, you're wedding photos are beautiful and so sweet. (What's up with us short girls marrying crazy tall dudes though? It's too funny!) I've really enjoyed this series, it's been fun to read and fun to learn a little more about you. (And I am so happy that it didn't end up being a catfish situation for you!)
