This sounds like something from one of my 'imaginary' settings, my day dreams and fantasies. But for this avid romancemeetslife reader it's reality. This story made me blush no end and I just had to share with you guys, plus a couple of the beautiful couple's pictures below.
In July 2012, the guy I was dating left the country to study without informing me. He called me from the US to apologize. He said he did not tell me because he did not know how I would have handled the information.
I cried for days and swore off men. I stayed away from guys and their advances after that.
January 2013, I asked God to give me something unimaginable as a birthday gift because my last few birthdays had been clouded with memories of the loss of my dad.
I usually don’t have birthday parties but on March 22 the night before my birthday. My heart kept troubling me to have one.
I felt it was already too late to start planning anything or inviting people but I was just restless. I gave in and agreed. I sent an SMS to a few of my close friends at about 10pm inviting them to “come eat rice” at my house the next day. I had no idea how I was going to put it together. There was nothing in the house.
I also sent the text to a former colleague; don’t know why I sent it to him because we were no didn’t really keep in touch after I left the company. He was the first to respond to the text.
The next morning after I cooked everything I could get my hands on. My colleague was the first to arrive but he did not come alone.
After I hugged him and let him into the house, I was about to greet his friend when we both froze staring at each other for what seemed like forever.
My friend had to clear his throat to break off the stare. We shook hands and he came in the house.
Since they were the first to arrive they had all my attention.
I asked if they wanted a taste of the Curry Sauce before I served it and they said yes. I dipped the spoon in the sauce and went on like someone in a spell to put it in my colleague's friend, now my fiancé’s mouth. ( I've barely known him for 45 mins)
We were both shocked and I was kinda embarrassed. Throughout the party we were glued together, chatting and laughing. He even helped me serve other guests. I gave him my number before he left to his surprise.
When they were leaving, I hugged him and shook my colleague’s hands. Didn’t realise this until he reminded me when we started dating. I didn’t take his calls for days after we met. I was back to my reality of no boys allowed.
He never gave up. He kept calling. About 5 days later I decided to take his call. He was so happy and wanted to see me right away. He was leaving town that day and almost missed his flight but he didn’t care. He just had to see me like he said.
After that day we were inseparable. We talked for hours on the phone every day.
We became best friends and 5 months later he proposed to me.
It was definitely Love at first sight and now we’re best friends on top of that.
God delivered my birthday gift to me in my own home and I get to keep him forever.
