I thought id make a blog post about how my boyfriend and I met, since I’ve already mentioned him a few times and I’m sure I will in the future!
How we met…just how everyone meets these days. You guessed it, tinder. It’s your classic tinderella story. Long story short, I was in his city (Toronto) for a concert and we matched. We probably talked on tinder/texted for almost two months before we went on our first date. I was finally enjoying single life and didn’t want a boyfriend. And he had somewhat recently gotten out of a long-term relationship. We also lived about an hour and a half away from each other. Which yes, isn’t that far but I had done long distance in the past and I didn’t want another long distance relationship. But he was very nice and handsome so I agreed to a date (thank god)🙌🏼.
Our first date was August 25th, 2018. We went to the rec room, which is basically a giant arcade with alcohol. And clearly we hit it off, as you can see in the photo booth posted above. We got drunk and played a bunch of arcade games. And let me tell you, we are both very competitive. I realized very quickly that I wanted this man in my life. Distance didn’t matter…and luckily he felt the same way.
We have been inseparable ever since our first date. It wasn’t the traditional “will you be my girlfriend” story. It was more of a “we spend most of our free time together and we don’t want to date other people” type of thing. That’s why we decided our anniversary is august 25th aka out first date. We have been together for just over a year and a half. We continue to do long distance, but see each other every other weekend. And in just a few months we won’t be doing long distance anymore…but more on that later.
So there you have it. That’s how I met Ryan, my love, my best friend and one of the best people to come into my life. I feel very lucky and thankful to have him.
Stay tuned for more stories about us💕
Until next time✨
