Valentine’s Day is around the corner. So is the Chinese New Year!
Anyway, this year would be the 7th year the S.O and I have been together. I know 7 years is a long time. Even I am amazed myself as this is by far the longest romantic relationship I’ve ever had.
The S.O and I met through a mutual friend a long long time ago. Actually, I first spoke to him on msn… on dial-up. FML
I admit that I was a little narrow-minded when I was younger, so everything he said irked me. He and the mutual friend enjoyed teasing me and so I was the center of attention (albeit in the wrong way. =.=”) But still even with all the teasing, I still enjoyed talking to him and we even set a date to meet up for the very first time. 🙂
I’d like to think that what brought us together was our mutual love for bubble tea. XD He had actually asked me out to lunch and I thought, “why not?”
He picked me up from the Kelana Jaya LRT in his green 2 door Vitara, and I felt a little self conscious. My first REAL LIFE impression of him; quiet which was the complete opposite of his alter-ego in Cyberspace. Our plan was to have McDonald’s for lunch then slurp on yummy bubble tea after that. We were too stuffed after that to eat or drink anything else, so we decided to call it a day.
A couple of days later, he called asking if I’d like to go grab that promised drink and so we did. We ended up talking and walking from Jaya, past the mosque, and back again TWICE. We talked about so many random stuff, I don’t remember what they were about anymore. But I do know he was the first guy to not flinch at the word marriage.
Then one fine day, he asked me how I felt about him (don’t remember when did this happened) and I guess the rest is history. 🙂
In these 7 years, we’ve been through a lot; LDR, laughter, tears… you name it, we’ve probably gone through it. I’m not perfect and he loves me even with all my flaws. He’s someone I’m extremely comfortable with and I can’t imagine life without him. So, here’s to 7 years and I hope there will be many more to come.
