Life after Divorce = ME!

Updated on January 27, 2012
The day he asked me to be his girlfriend

The day he proposed

Gah where do I begin. Over One year ago, definitely after my divorce was finalized I decided to go on a dating website just to see if this stuff actually works. So Plenty of Fish it was. I met a few great guys, and I met a few weirdos and I met a guy that had smaller hands than me. That was so not the business.

First Date was my worst nightmare.. He took me to a pasta joint and I was so nervous I dropped marinara sauce on my white blouse.. Yeah so you can say that I never heard from him again after the first date.

Date number two, I had sweaty palm syndrome. This guy was a hunk and the most sweetest ever. He bought me flowers for our first date and took me to a nice restaurant and took me for a walk on the boardwalk. I swear when he tried to hold my hand it slipped right out because my palms were that sweaty. I had to look the other way because I was about to cry I was so embarrassed.

All these dates can go on and on and on. Right before I went home on vacation for Christmas 2010 I got a message in my plenty of fish inbox from a guy who's picture I could barely see. So I was like whatever let me give him a chance. We sent a few messages back and forth before I finally gave him my cell phone number. We texted each other back and forth the whole time I was home. And finally I told him let's meet, but something always came up. We finally met each other after texting for 3 weeks, so basically I met him a week right after new years.

It wasn't your normal first time meeting where we went on a date and did something spectacular, it was one of those, dam I finally convinced this guy to come and meet me. So he came over to my house so that we could watch a movie. We ended up falling asleep and I woke up in the middle of the night to him cuddling with me. It was an experience that I was not all to familiar with being that my ex wasn't a affectionate type of person. I was in absoloute heaven.

After that night we texted each other every morning good morning without skipping a beat. I saw him a few days later where we actually had our first date. Yeah I know we did this backwards. I took him to go eat PHO for the first time and he loved it. Since I picked the place to eat on our first date I paid. He was a bit weirded out that I paid for dinner. But that was first for him, because his ex-wife didn't have a job and just took all his money.

On January 28, 2011 he asked me to be is girlfriend. I was soo excited I felt like I was in high school again. We were together almost every single day for 3 weeks before he asked me to be his GF.

In April 2011 we moved in together and I don't think that I would have had it any other way. I have not been this happy in a long time. Everyday is just filled with Laughter, Smiles and waking up to a great man every morning. He knows how to pick me up when I am feeling down, and just make me laugh when there is nothing to laugh about.

October 6, 2011 I never thought that this day would ever come again since it was an epic fail the first time. WE GOT MARRIED! And it is the best feeling in the world, to know that this time it feels like I did the right thing. I love him with all my heart and everyday I thank god for putting him in my path I was heading down.
