Sentimental Wednesday Kickoff - Our Love Story, Part I

Yay for Sentimental Wednesday! I thought it would never come. I am very excited for today's post because it's all about how I fell in love with The Boyfriend. Cheesy, I know, but I'm psyched to tell you our love story. Just don't get too attached, because not every Wednesday will be a post about The Girlfriend and The Boyfriend. =P

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...
Everyone seemed so into this guy and I really wanted to know why he was oh-so-interesting. I caught him glancing at me a few times (probably because I was the only person he didn't know either) and I was pretty sure he knew I was eying him too. Now, I was sitting next to my current boyfriend so I just asked him "Who is that guy?" and he explained to me that this guy had gone to the same church before joining the Army.

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...

lol. So funny that him being in the military boosted your impression of him. For some reason a lot of people here in southern california have a bad impression of boys in the military. We experience them a lot as a whole because there are a lot of naval bases and such. Most of the time they walk around the streets in groups acting immature and going to strip clubs. Obviously I'm being a bit stereotypical, but this stereotype is based on lots of actual occurrences in this area. Josh sounds like a really nice guy though, so I wouldn't put him in that category ;)

Your story so far kind of reminds me a lot of Louise's story from Laidoffmom


not the first chapter, but some in the middle, she had a different boyfriend too.
