At a bar.
But it's not like that.
One night my good friend Brittany wanted to go to this bar to see her crush and his band. I didn't want to go. At all. But I knew how much she did, so her sister and I reluctantly went along.
Once we were there we found a place at the bar and we girls just hung out and talked, waiting for the band to go on. Then this guy came over and started talking to us (Steven's friend, (now our friend) Eric). Soon after, his friend came over (Steven), apologizing for his friend botherng us. Both guys stayed around and we all started talking. I'm pretty sure Steven and I talked about movies all night. He kept saying he'd seen almost every movie. I kept trying to point out one he hadn't. (I won with Princess Bride).
I soon broke up for good with the boy that I had such a rocky relationship with.
And I did see Steven again, once I was single.
It's now been about 2 and a half years since our first date, and we've spent almost every day together since.
He is my best friend.
My better half.
The man who makes me laugh and smile more than I can count.
He's opened my eyes to so many things I would have never of known about.
He makes me feel loved and special.
He is one of the best men I've ever known and he for some reason has decided to be with me of all girls.
I am so incredibly lucky and blessed to have him in my life. And even though we've had our fair share of ups and downs, we've survived them. Our love has grown and become what it is today.
I am a better person because of Steven and in a way, I think that's one of the best definitions of love.
Happy Valentines Day/
