After being in a long distance relationship many years ago, I decided to throw in the towel. The relationship wasn’t for me, I wasn’t happy and I knew in my heart it was time to move on. The relationship ended pretty fast, considering we were together for 3 years but when you live on opposite sides of the World, it’s bound to happen. I knew the day was coming for many months for me to officially call it off so when it happened, I wasn’t nearly as upset as I probably should have. It was more a relief that I was able to close that chapter in my life and move on to bigger and better things.
Shortly after I ended that relationship, I met someone. I wasn’t actively seeking for a new partner, but when it’s meant to me you can’t stop it.
The person was my mom’s co-worker. She worked in a real estate office at the time, and she was on the hunt for a new house and he happened to also be her Realtor. Go figure, right? After breaking up with my ex, I had moved out of the city and back to the suburbs to live with my mom. Needless to say, I was a big part of the house hunting process since it was just me and my mom moving in together. During the house hunting process, I got to know her Realtor more and more. We went out with a couple friends once. We all had a great time and made lots of memories (staying at a club until 4:30am, then having a flat tire at 6am – stuff you can’t make up). After our ‘friend date,’ we decided to go on a date – just the two of us.
We went to one of our favorite restaurants (mexican food, of course) and then to a local bar. We had the best time possible. It was great to meet someone that you instantly click with and that’s exactly what happened. We’ve been inseparable every since that night. That night was almost 4 years ago and I’m now happy to call that guy, my husband.
Our story unfolded all because we took the chance to say Hello to each other and make an effort to make a new connection. Recently, Lindt came out with a fun, new romantic web series capturing first connections and it’s hilarious. Visit Lindt’s you tube page to view the new web series episodes, a new show comes out every week through October 9th.
The web series reminds me a lot of Quinn and my relationship in the beginning. Everything was so innocent and comical, now that I look back on it. We weren’t in it to find someone that we were going to marry, we were just having fun and meeting new people. It’s amazing how everything turned out. I’m forever grateful.
I like to have fun with our relationship and to keep things entertaining. I love to buy little presents for him throughout the week or have treats delivered to the house to surprise him. One of his favorite treats is chocolates. There is no denying, the boy has a major sweet tooth. We travel to the candy section at the grocery store weekly. One of our favorites is the Lindt Cookies and Cream Chocolate Bars. It’s a chocolate bar with cookies and cream in the middle. Are you drooling yet?
