The Story of Us: Part 2

Ok, part 2 of our story is up next! If you missed Part 1, you can read that here.

So anyways...we had the game night and Sarah and Emily had been acting kind of weird for a couple of days afterwards. Like whispering and smiling and such, you know how girls do. I really didn't think much of it, just figured if there was something they knew that involved me, they would tell me.

A few nights later Sarah told me "Adam had a really good time the other night" and I think from her tone of voice and the way she said it I pretty much immediately figured out what she was trying to say. They (Sarah and Emily) had debated whether they should tell me that Adam liked me and wanted to get to know me better, and that he had asked if they thought he should just call me sometime or wait until we had another group thing. Knowing me and my super shy nature Emily and Sarah thought I might feel more comfortable in a group setting at first, so they planned a lunch thing at Kevin's apartment.


It was pretty much a typical weekend afternoon for us, eating KFC and playing Mario Party (we were CRAZY college kids, you guys). Adam and I interacted of course, but no more than anyone else, we all just had fun together.

About a week later, when Rebecca and I came back from the gym, I walked in the door and Sarah immediately tells me "Adam called." (This was on my cell phone, and it just occurred to me...I went to the gym and left without my cell phone?? How times have changed.)



I quickly checked my voicemail and his message said that he had gotten my number from Emily and he wanted to know if I wanted to do something that night. I promptly began to freak OUT because as you may recall at this point I have pretty much zero experience with dating AND I'm an overthinker so I'm all nervous and awkward. I had plans already for that night so I called him back and asked him if he wanted to do something tomorrow instead. He said that would work and the plan was set.



The next afternoon after church (it was a Sunday) I called and we agreed to meet at a local arcade later that afternoon. I went to lunch with Sarah and Rebecca in the cafeteria and could barely eat anything, I was so nervous. We met at the arcade and played all the games for a while, then went to Starbucks for a while, just chatting. I honestly can't really remember what we talked about, but I do remember it just being so natural and easy, even with my nervousness. I was all "Hey this isn't so bad, this guy is really easy to talk to" and he said we would call me later that week.

About a week later was the day before Valentine's Day "date" and after that he started hanging out with our group a lot more and we started calling and texting each other a few nights a week. I was starting to fall for him, and I didn't even realize it yet.

  10. Your story reminds me a little of mine too. I was never into dating until I got into junior college. Then I decided I needed a boyfriend but instead I found a husband! Haha! We've been together since 1998. Your story is very sweet! Keep telling it! If you'd like to say hi, please email me at estherdavison@gmail.com. My blogger account is "no-reply" :(.
