Three days after our Craigslist e-mail conversations, we had a sushi dinner date. Neither of us wanted a relationship so our walls were down and our true personalities showed. We spoke of tattoos, oranges, unagi and other random topics.
In the middle of the meal he gulped his water and then allowed it to dribble onto this shirt. Yes, he purposely drooled on himself. Rather than being mortified, I laughed.
When I got home that night and recapped the night to family, I stated that he was the cutest nerd I had ever seen. I thought to myself I could definitely see myself being with him for a long time if not forever. I was right.
Postscript: Three years later we’re so very in love, married and loving life together.
