Letters To My Former Single Self

I have loved this link up
Even though I've been cheating because I'm not technically married yet
But I think it's safe to say I will be in less than 5 months so...
The last link up with Northern Belle Diaries

This week's question is: 
Describe your first date with your now current partner. Did you feel any "butterflies" on your first couple of encounters? Did you have any indication it would later be the "real deal?"

Dear Former Single Self,

This one's a tough one because the two of you never really had an official first date. You thought you were friends. Just friends. But maybe it should have hit you Valentine's Day 2007 that this boy might be more than just your friend. Sometimes you consider this your first date. If you remember right it's actually where you found out you do like steak and you got a pretty good story out of it. That boy you watch basketball with came over and cooked you and your friend steak and it was amazing. Your dad kind of cooks steak until its leather so you never knew that it was bearable to eat steak without so much A1. It was delicious. Then that same boy left your dad's gas on... and we didn't figure it out until the entire tank had emptied. This will be funny years later but it wasn't so funny to that poor boy then.

The other time you could consider your first date was when you went to his sister's wedding 2 days before you officially started dating. You met his extended family and about 200 of their closest friends. It was like ripping a bandaid off. And you loved it.

It's pretty safe to say that you knew there was something special because you enjoyed meeting so many people. You invited him to your house. And the butterflies? He drug out that first kiss for DAYSSSSSS. It was the sweetest thing in the world. I think you knew it was the real deal right away because you never wanted someone around so much. You always pulled away from relationships and you HATED the thought of saying I love you. You said I love you to that boy you watched basketball with within 3 months. Crazy. 

You were home. And your instincts were right. You not only gained the one but you gained another family. You gained another home. So please listen to those instincts. And when that boy gets a little scared of how serious you are so fast just give him his space and be nice to him anyway because he's your one.
