Hello there lovelies!
Loving all of the planning threads so here is my own! I love getting feedback about my ideas and getting "outsider perspective" on things!
I'll also be using this as a way of managing my obsessive and erratic tendancies so I apologize in advance if I get a little "mental" as FI likes to call me 😂
Me and D first met when my best friend F told me there was a job going at the lab he worked at. As I sat there nervously waiting for my interview, in walks this totally gorgeous guy! It was like in the movies! Tall, dark and handsome... slow motion walking towards me... hair flick... flash of a charming smile... "Hello! You must be here for the interview! I'm the lab manager!".... WHAT!? Oh my... As if interviews weren't awkward enough!!
As it goes though I got the job, and working together, we became good friends. Of course I'd have DIED if he knew how much of a MASSIVE crush I had on him - I was like a little school girl! Giggling at his jokes and blushing when he looked at me, and I found myself constantly thinking "..... was he flirting with me just there??.... nah! Couldn't have been!". Eventually I left my job to go work at another lab.
The day I started my new job, he asked me out - apparently our feelings had been mutual the whole time, including doubting the other would have any interest at all! But, being my manager, thought it inappropriate to do anything about it while I worked there (I thought he seemed a little too happy when I said I was leaving!)
Our relationship then seemed to take off at lightening speed! I guess after wasting so much time with our previous relationships (both long term and toxic) we didn't want to waste any more time being unhappy! We moved in together around 2 weeks into the relationship, figuring if we weren't going to work out, this was the way to find out sooner rather than later - But we were completely compatible in every way! Later we adopted two fur babies, and after two years of being together, and lots of not-so-subtle hints (and tantrums) from myself, he proposed!
Our fur babies - Long Socks and Rusty Rocket! :)
