I met James when I was in a relationship. The relationship I was in wasn’t the best… it was stale and pretty much loveless. I started a new job and James worked there and it wasn’t until I had worked there for a few months, that I realised I liked him quite a bit. We started to hang out when we went out with work colleagues and I began to fancy him. We talked non-stop, he made me laugh and I just knew that something needed to change because when I spent time with my boyfriend, James was all I could think about. When I was with James, I didn’t give my boyfriend a single thought!
It took me a few months to pluck up the courage to end the relationship I was in… I guess I stuck with it a little longer because it was scary thinking of being with someone else. I’d been with this boyfriend for pretty much 2 years. My first long-term relationship. I knew James fancied me and wanted to be with me though. He never hid that fact 🙂
The day I ended things with my boyfriend, James and I had our very first date. It was so romantic, he wore a suit out for dinner with me and he held my hand proudly. I knew we would be together for the long run as we held hands walking back to his house after the date. I had never felt so happy in myself… and I had never felt so excited to be holding anyones hand.
That day was in May 2004… almost 8 1/2 years ago, and here we are married for 5 of those years with two amazing little boys to show for it.
I reckon I made a good decision 🙂
Linking up with Mama Kat.
