One lazy Sunday morning, I got a call from a friend of mine asking if I could meet a childhood friend of his who just came back from the States, first, I wasn’t interested in a long distance relationship, in fact, I didn’t have the energy for any kind of relationships after my last. He kept calling and insisting his friend was a great guy with an outstanding personality, and that all I had to do was just meet him. He also mentioned that he had a limp and that kind of scared me. “Ok! No problem, I will meet your friend.”, I said.
On December 27, 2017, I walked into Fam city and sighted this dark, average height guy sitting at the corner end of a table reading a book. When we got talking, I noticed he was confident and intelligent, there was something about his personality that was cute and sweet, and I wanted to get to know him more. The date was short because he had a business meeting, but he went ahead and asked for another date and I obliged. The second date turned to a 3rd date and 2 days later he went back to the States.
I waited for days for his call, but no call came in and I was like “Whatever!“ On my way back from work, I noticed several missed calls accompanied by a text from him apologizing for not calling so soon. We got texting and from texting, we were talking for like 6 hrs in a day. Some weeks later he asked me to be in a relationship with him, but I shot him down. He was so devastated and sad. I explained to him that I wanted to know him and the only way I could truly do that was to be his friend. He agreed. We were friends for 6months and it was blissful.
Although he has a limp, he was the strongest man I had ever met, his confidence in himself and his beliefs in his dreams were intimidating. He was smart, tolerable and committed. He was truly a man of integrity and outstanding character and I just couldn’t wait for him to re-ask the previous question. 30th July 2018, he asked me to be in a relationship with and I said yes and on the 27th of November 2018, he popped the question, if I would marry him and I gave a resounding Yes!
