Her Story

This story is for you.

1. She couldn’t believe she was here. Her first apartment completely on her own. Finally finished with college. Great job at a law firm. Working with her best friend to accomplish some goals outside of her job. She sipped on her coffee and reflected on last night.

He was incredibly cute and kind and funny. He told these charming stories about his daughter and said he couldn’t wait until they could meet. It was really refreshing to see a guy so committed to his family. He definitely knew what he wanted. He had brought flowers and complimented her numerous times throughout the night. She felt like she was the most interesting, beautiful person alive just by being in his company. They had spent hours talking about anything and everything. He was a great communicator too. They had even delved into some really deep subjects, but it was amazing to see all the emotional vulnerability. *sigh*

He seemed so perfect.

2. It’s been a month now. Everything basically feels like heaven. He wants to spend every waking moment together and even when they’re at work, he texts to let her know how much he misses her. They’ve been talking about a future together. He said she was his dream girl and he couldn’t imagine life with someone more perfect. He randomly buys flowers and he always seems to know exactly what she needs or wants at any given moment. They are taking a trip together soon. She is so excited! Everything in life seems better now that he’s come along.

3. What a whirlwind. They were getting married! He asked her on the trip and of course, the answer had to be yes! She could not believe that she had found someone so incredible. She was definitely nervous, but the anxious feeling in her stomach was just the excitement and newness, nothing to be worried about. She did wish he had met her family first, but when she verbalized that to him, he said that their relationship was just between the two of them. It made sense, really. They would meet him at the wedding and they would love him. Everyone loved him. She had never met someone so charismatic and funny. It seemed he was the ultimate charmer everywhere they went. People just adored him. He always knew the right thing to say, whether it was in a crowd or at home with just her.

She had informed him that she wanted to wait at least a year before they got married. After all, they had JUST started dating and that seemed really fast. He agreed, but seemed a bit disappointed. The sulking had worn off after a day or two, but she kind of felt bad. He said it was everything he could dream of to have her as his own and she absolutely could not wait to be a Mrs.
