My fiance and I have been together for 3 years and 3 months. We are completely in love and can’t wait to be married. We have a weird story of how it all began though!
Zach used to be my math tutor when I was in the 6th grade. That’s when I first met him. I thought he was so cute. Everyday when I would get home I’d tell my grandma how much I liked him. But, him being 4 years older than me she never payed any attention to it.
I didn’t see Zach for a couple years after that until we were at the homecoming dance in September of 2010. As soon as he saw me he asked if I wanted to dance. At first I told him no, because he wasn’t really my type but after him asking countless times, I finally agreed…What could a meaningless dance hurt?
We danced and then the night was over. We both went back to not speaking, and like I said before, it was like nothing ever happened.
In November I started having some trouble in Algebra…Nothing major, just little issues. My grandma decides to call Zach to ask him if I could come over for some tutoring. My best friend was with me, and she told me that this was my chance to finally be with him. I rolled my eyes at the thought, but I let her curl my hair and do my make up anyways.
When I arrived we got straight to the math problems. At this point I couldn’t think of anything but him, and how much I wanted a relationship with him. It was like the feelings hit me all at once…I used to think he was cute, but a real relationship with him had my mind spinning. When my Grandma came to pick me up, Zach gave her his email so she could send him a recipe of his favorite cake she made for his graduation dinner. I decided to take to email and email him myself.
I contemplated it for a could days….Hes in college, hes probably got a girlfriend, why would he want a freshman in high school..I had all these thoughts going through my head, but finally I decided to give it a shot..whats the worst that could happen, he could say he didn’t like me and I’d have to find a new math tutor?
I sent the email saying, “Hey, whats up? :)” It took him a could hours but he finally sent message saying “Hey, send me a message on my instant messenger” So I did and we talked for a couple weeks. Zach was worried about the age difference so he was a little weird at first..He asked me to go to my Christmas dance at the high school. So I said yes.
I was so excited, he hadn’t told me that he liked me yet, but just by asking me to the dance made me so happy. I had dated other guys, but I had never felt like that in my entire life, it was a completely new feeling to me.
Finally, it was the day of the dance. I woke up early to go and get my hair done, but it began to snow. Unfortunately the dance was cancelled 😦 I sent him a text message letting him know that we couldn’t go today because it was cancelled. All he said was “k.” I was a bit confused, but didn’t put much thought into it. We didn’t talk the rest of the day.
The next morning, on Sunday he showed up at my house with roses. I was so embarrassed because I had just got up, and look awful. He gave me the roses, and told me that he was going to ask me to be his girlfriend after the dance, but it didn’t work out like that so he was going to ask me now. I was shocked though it was the sweetest thing anyone had ever done.
We’ve been together ever since, going strong….I’m so blessed to have met such an amazing guy…I couldn’t be any happier with the man of my dreams…I truly believe it was meant to be! ♥
