I’m still on vacation! Hope you’re not missing me too much! 🙂
I think I’ve briefly mentioned it, but the fiance and I met as roommates.
Well, if I’m asked that’s what I say. If he’s asked he says “Craigslist.”
Thanks honey, thanks.
We lived with three other roommates in a giant 100 year old house, right of NW 23rd.
(street view is clearly a good way to show the house, right. and we don’t live there anymore. Sorry, to ruin any stalking plans)
Shortly after moving in, we had a few too many drinks, and realized we kinda liked each other
And we tried to not date. But, every time we had a few drinks, we remembered we really liked each other. A
fter a few months of that, he realized he couldn’t withstand my charm, and told me he didn’t want to just be my roommate…
We started dating about 4 months after we first met, and clearly, he can’t live without me now 🙂
We’ve done a lot together in these past two years. We go to Timbers games together
We go to the coast together
We both got our masters degrees (him in Economics, me in Teaching)
And basically just love each other a lot.
There are a lot of great things about him.
He does the dishes
He gets into mischief with my brothers
(we were making a little fire. We learned not to ask them to find the firewood).
He’s good at sharing
And, he got me a Canadian diamond when he proposed! (Canadian = not a blood diamond. Score!)
So basically, the Eating Machine falling in love method:
- Get a male roommate
- Drink too much
- Kiss previously mentioned roommate
- Try to not date for months
- Be too darn irresistible
- Live happily ever after.
That kids, is how you fall in love.
