Our relationship moved rather quickly. This happened due to some issues I had with my parents, so after 3 months of dating I ended up moving in with him at his families house. A few months later after saving up we finally found our very own apartment. We were so excited. We moved in on my birthday, June 9, 2010. Our relationship was'nt perfect but we always were able to work through our issues, I mean living with someone after only dating for 3 months really makes you learn everything about each other. LOL! We talked about marriage a couple of times but I never thought he would be asking any time soon. So here's how it happend. We had just hit our 1 year anniversary on September 5th and things were going great. A couple weekends later I had gone away for a weekend with a friend and when I got home I was exhausted so I got cleaned up and ready for bed. So I was already half asleep when he laid down next to me and started to have some late night pillow talk with me. He started by saying he loved me and so I said I loved him back. And we always played this little game were we would say "no I love you more" so after going back and forth for a minute he started to explain that he really loved me, he cared for me, and wanted to spend his life with me. I of course did'nt think much of this because we were lying in bed so I thought he was just trying to butter me up or something. I had my back turned to him and he started again with the "I love you more" thing and I said "thats impossible because I love you more." He replied, "well I love you more, wanna know why?" and he put the ring box in front of my face. I don't think I've ever jumped outta bed so fast! I yelled "are you serious? Is this for real?" And he asked me to marry him:) One of the best days of my life. The picture does'nt do it justice. It has a antque/vintage feel. I love my ring!
Our story is quite a story. Jhon and I met for the first time in August 2007 going to a Linkin Park concert, at the time I was dating someone else so we didn't really give each other any thought. About 2 months later after I had parted ways with my ex, we came in contact and started talking. At the time he had a busy schedule with work & his passion for gaming, traveling and having to practice all the time left him no time for me. So about two weeks into dating I called it quits. Off and on for about 2 years we saw each other here and there, exchanged quick hello's and that was that. In August of 2009 I was working one night a received the strangest text from an unknown number asking how I was doing. Wondering who on earth it was, I was replied with a picture from the neck to the waist. I of course found this frustrating and not funny. Then received a picture of him waist down (dressed ladies!). After threatening not to answer any longer, he finally gave me the biggest hint of all. He text me, "Do you remember standing outside a game stop for 10 hours waiting for Halo?" Oh did I remember this! Lets just say I'll NEVER do it again. So after finally figuring out who it was we starting texting non-stop that night. He asked to see me and I agreed to meet for coffee the next day after work. Man was I nervous. I showed up in my work uniform with covered in grease (worked at a parts store) trying to look the cutest I could. So we got coffee and started to chat and were inseparable ever since. I laugh now because I later found out he hates coffee. Below is the first picture we ever took together:)
