It all started on a Monday morning at work.
My co-worker, Kate, came in and immediately told me she had a question for me.
“Okay… what is it?” I ask.
“Do you want to go on a date?” She asked me…
Uh…. wait… what?!
“Luke has a friend who just became single…and I think you two would like each other.” She tells me.
Warning!! Just became single? Yeah.. that’s what I want to get into.
But I thought to myself, what do I have to lose? And plus, it’s not exactly like I had been having any luck finding guys on my own.
I tell her sure… but I want to see a picture first (he had already seen a picture of me, before agreeing to go on a date).
So, Kate e-mails her husband (Luke) and he calls Chris to have him send an e-mail with pictures.
Oh my… talk about everyone getting into everyone else’s business.
Anywho, I finally got the forwarded e-mail….
So…. we started e-mailing.
Getting to know one another… before we actually met.
Then he asked me (in a very roundabout way) on a date on New Years Eve.
We hung out at Kate and Luke’s place.
Played games, watched movies… cuddled??
We hung out the next day too.
Then he didn’t talk to me for a few days.
My mind went crazy! No e-mails, no phone calls… seriously?!
Turns out… the man was busy! When he finally did get a chance to call me, we talked for 4 hours straight on the phone.
We did have an ‘awkward’ moment shortly after we started dating.
It was namely, me…. freaking out because he was calling me his girlfriend and we had never discussed our status.
I got over it quickly though… and after one semi-awkward beginning of a date, we have been going strong ever since.
I thank Kate every year for hooking us up.
So glad she thought we would be perfect for each other… based on our music tastes!
