Well everyone blogs right? I don't know about the whole blogging thing, I have never truly enjoyed reading, let alone having anyone read my writings. Well I decided I'll try it out if I hate it I can always stop and it won't have mattered much.
So since I feel i am boring I will try and tell my favorite story to date which is how Nate and I met:
I was living in a house with two girlfriends, one was Maggie Tsou, she is the cutest Taiwanese girl you will ever meet. So sweet and just a great friend. I was also living with Nancy Cooper who happened to get a job at BlueHost and was working in the same department as Nathan. Nancy thought Nathan was so cute and super nice and wanted to get to know him better to see if she wanted to date him or not so I suggested she should invite him over more often so she could spend more time with him out of work. So she did... Halloween night 2007 we threw a party at our house and he showed up ten minutes early. I opened the door and was surprised to see someone I didn't know, but boy was he cute! He asked for Nancy and I went back to getting the house ready for everyone else.
Guests started arriving and we started playing games. After a long night, the night before (we were trying to finish my costume, Nancy and I were exhausted), Nancy decided to take a short nap. We played games and I watched as Nate was just so helpful, he would answer the door every time the bell rang and he would get food for anyone who even mentioned it. I was so impressed and he was so much fun to play games with. He had an unending store of movie quotes and enjoyed just playing around. I tried not to flirt because I knew Nancy liked him but found it quite difficult because what a cutie!! Apparently I flirted enough though because Nate asked for my number it was very cute and I was excited that a guy was putting forth the effort. So we exchanged numbers. I thought to myself, 'I won't call him unless he calls me first.' I was nervous afterwards because I didn't know how Nancy would react.
So I let it cool for a few days and on Saturday we planned a game night. By this point I wanted Nancy to decide if she wanted to date him so if she decided not to, I could. :) So I told her she should invite him over for the game night. And boy did we flirt. Now it must be said I am a VERY competitive person. anyone who has played games with me knows that, but that night I was so interested in him, I lost Disney Scene it. (Another side note...I have NEVER lost Disney Scene it.) We talked about everything, quoted movies like crazy, and just had so much fun. To my surprise Nancy invited him over to our wards Break the Fast the following night. I thought huh that's weird because in my mind he and I had hit it off quite well and I thought Nancy would have noticed but I was still aware that she had said she liked him first.
This part was my favorite part of the whole night. So the night ended and he gave me a hug I was so excited and then Nancy went to give him a hug and not even thinking about it he just said, 'group hug!' and brought me in again. (I just think it's a little funny). We shut the door and Nancy proclaimed, 'Yeah I really like him.' I was so sad. :( But it was totally fair. I went to bed and the next morning Nancy and I were making food for break the fast. Apparently I couldn't stop talking about him because she finally looked at me and asked, 'Would you date him if I decided not to?' I was torn, so I said, 'I wouldn't if you didn't want me too but that would be pretty hard for me because I am very attracted to him and I think he is amazing.' So she said, 'I'd be okay with that'. So after break the fast I was hoping she would make a decision and she did. She said she wasn't going to date him. I was ecstatic!
I immediately started flirting I wasn't about to play games I told him I was going to be watching a movie that night and even though he totally got that I was trying to have him invite himself over he wouldn't do it. What a sneaky guy. So as I struggled with if it was to soon to invite him over I decided to heck with it I'm 23 I can ask a guy over for a movie. So I did, I texted him right as he got home and he came right back over. We kind of cuddled on the couch and I shamelessly put my hand on my leg closest to him with the palm up and everything, I wasn't leaving room for misinterpretation. Later I found out he was thinking, 'don't hold her hand, don't hold her hand, don't hold her hand.' Nancy walked in and saved him from himself. ;)
The next day Nate was trying to find me on Facebook and couldn't so he texted me. I was so excited and for the rest of the day we texted and then instant messaged. It went rather quickly we told each other a lot about ourselves and then we ended up confessing we liked each other we decided to ditch F.H.E. and go out on our first date. By the end of the night we were boyfriend and girlfriend and the rest is history. Well kind of... The rest is to follow, stay posted.
