I've had this post sitting patiently in my drafts folder waiting for the perfect moment to post it. Today seemed a good of time as ever to share my story.
If you've been following my blog for a while, you may know that I love tinder. Like I seriously think it may be one of the greatest apps ever, if not for finding true love or a little bow chicka wow wow its at least good for a laugh.
So here it is, my tinderella story:
I've been on a few tinder dates in my day, some more promising than others. But this one was different. And I had a feeling it would be from the beginning. We matched while we were both still at college, which is 4 hours away from my hometown. But, his hometown happened to not be that far from me. After graduation, we decided we would meet and give it a shot. I had never been so nervous for a date in my entire life. And when I say nervous I mean pacing up and down the hallway brush my teeth 5 times kind of nervous. I was basically a hot mess.
I had no need to be nervous though, the date was flawless. He was cute, funny, charming, and just as nervous as I was. And I was awkward enough for the both of us (but what else is new?) He brought me home and walked me to the door and said goodnight. This is where I freaked out. He didn't kiss me.
I walked into the house, sat on the couch and instantly called all my friends freaking out about why he didn't kiss me. I thought the date went so well and that we really hit it off, but no kiss! WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?! was all that was running through my head that night and into the next day.
But, no need to worry, the kiss I was planning for may have never happened, but it didn't put a damper on this relationship. I promised an update on my LDR and here it is. I may have moved across the country for my summer job, putting thousands of miles between us, but I would say it has helped us build a more intellectual and emotional relationship by not having the opportunity of a physical relationship. That doesn't go to say that I'm not excited to be home.. but I do believe that this has made our relationship that much stronger.
So strong in fact that in the fall we are both moving to Texas where I got a new job and he is going to be joining me on this new adventure.
It may be a little unorthodox and maybe I'm just slightly crazy, but this is my tinderella story.
