The Story of Us: Part 4 + $175 Paypal CASH Giveaway!!!

Well, well, well, we're finally to the last part of the story. Well, the last part of the story of how we met and started dating, anyway. One day maybe I will tell you our engagement story, but today is not that day.

Thank you all for sticking with me, I know I drew this story out way longer than I needed to, but I had fun with it, and that's all that matters right? Right.

If you missed the other parts of the story they are here, here, and here.

AND don't go without entering the giveaway at the bottom, because CASH! 


So he asks me out and I go into panic mode and say we should just be friends for now. I had, quite literally, zero experience with dating at this point so I was totally over analyzing the whole situation and I was just plain scared. But being the wonderful fella Adam is, he said he understood. We chatted for a few minutes after that and then we said goodbye and I pretty much felt like the worst person ever.

I talked to Kevin after that and I was a little upset, and I guess word got back to Adam, so he calls back and says "Are you okay?" I told him I was and he said "Ok, well I just wanted to make sure you were okay, DO NOT feel bad okay? You didn't do anything wrong."

Well, color me impressed. I was really kind of floored that it was that important to him that I not feel guilty or upset.

OMGeeee I had SO MUCH HAIR!!
We ended up talking on the phone for hours later that night, and we were just really honest about our feelings. He told me what he felt like a dating relationship would entail, I admitted I was clueless and scared. By the end of that conversation a couple of things were clear: we really cared about each other and were still interested in seeing where this could go, whatever that meant. And we could have a really honest, no holds barred conversation. This guy is not afraid of communication. I think I've already mentioned this, but he's better at communicating than I am.

A couple of days later I had a choir concert, which he came to (if he will come to your boring choir concerts, especially if he will come to more than one, he may be a keeper ladies), and then afterwards we had planned to hang out, just the two of us (We were SO already dating at this point. Semantics). We really wanted to see if we could pick up where we left off and make sure there wasn't any weirdness or awkwardness. There wasn't of course. It's always been so natural and easy with us. We went to Starbucks and then to the park, and he played his guitar and we talked.

We ended up spending the next couple of evenings together, chatting at the coffee shop or the park, or we would just sit at the school and talk. We prayed together about where this was going, and I think at that point we both felt like this was headed somewhere pretty special. One evening we were sitting in his car talking, and he reached over and grabbed my hand. You guys, this was the first time we had held hands and I was on Cloud 9.

It had been less than a week since he asked me to go on a date, but through all of our talking and praying the fear was gone and my feelings were so much clearer to me now. As we were sitting there holding hands, all giddy like 13 year olds or something, he asked me if I would be his girlfriend.

And I just felt this...peace. This rightness about it. So, less than a week from the day I said "just friends," I said "Yes, I will be your girlfriend." And I'm pretty sure it's one of the best decisions I've ever made.

  8. Awww so cute! I feel like it's always portrayed in the movies that when you find the right person it's perfect and both people know exactly what they're doing...the truth is that it's usually awkward and both people do something weird and the perfection is in finding someone who doesn't care if you literally have no idea what you're doing (this was my experience anyway). Loved reading this - are you going to be putting up an engagement story???
