How I Met the Man of My Dreams
It was the end of June 2009 and I was attending a Bible study with my current boyfriend in his church's youth pastor's home. I'd been a few times before so I knew all of the people there...except one. Everybody else seemed to know him and be uber curious about his "new life." On the outside, he looked a little nerdy, but kinda cute. He was wearing a black t-shirt with the Batman logo, glasses, Vans with black and white checkered shoelaces, and a high 'n' tight. Essentially, he looked like this...
Woah. Stop right there. He's in the Army??? I know this is super shallow of me, but that instantly made him smokin' hot. He wasn't just nerdy-cute anymore. This guy was sizzlin'. Of course I couldn't tell my boyfriend that I thought this. Oooooh no.
But then...as if it couldn't get any better...he spoke. Oh, my heart! Unlike all the other scrawny, wimpy guys at the Bible study, this guy had a MAN'S voice. His voice was deep and commanding, but also gentle and light-hearted. He had people laughing and he answered questions so matter-of-fact. Needless to say, my heart melted into my shoes.
Unfortunately, my new heartthrob came with two very large problems.
1. I had a boyfriend (with whom the relationship was already on the rocks).
and 2. He lived 800 miles away.
Stay tuned later tonight for Part II of Our Love Story...
