She wasn’t that into me because I talked with all the adults while all the kids played bocce ball at a dinner party. That night I sent her a Facebook message asking her out to coffee the next day, which turned into her inviting me over. That night was our first movie, our first kiss, and our first sleepover. The rest is history.
Postscript: We’ve been dating for almost 10 months now, most of which was long distance between Seattle and Chicago. But we’re definitely in love: She came with me to Lafayette, Louisiana, while I did research for my history thesis! That’s what I call commitment.
