I won an “argument” with him and he said my prize could be whatever I wanted. I left my ex that night and went on a date with him the next day. He took me to a park and held me. Then he kissed me. We met at work almost 4 years ago and had been working together in the office for a few months. We both knew that there had to be something between us. We took his kids to the park one day and he said, “I don’t want to freak you out, but I love you.” This was 2 weeks after our first date. Every time I was with him I couldn’t help but to stare at him because he is the most perfect man in the world. I still stare at him, almost a year later, in disbelief.
Postscript: Four months and 10 days after our first date, we got married at the courthouse. He makes me laugh like no one else. The passion, love, excitement, and butterflies that he still gives me are indescribable. The one-year anniversary of our first date is on April 11th.
