Well, after a particularly bad day (I had come home from college to attend the funeral of a close friend who had committed suicide) I went to a bonfire with a few friends of mine. Having dealt with the emotional upheaval that funerals usually cause and looking a complete wreck, I decided to just try to have as much fun as possible. I hadn't been dating for about 8 months and wasn't really thinking about it, until I laid my eyes on this adorable Irish boy :) haha. Now, I'm not trying to sound conceited, but I'm used to being chased, you know what I'm saying girls? But he was making me work for it! I finagled a way into making HIM drive me back to my car, then, as I was getting out, asked for his number so we could hang out before I went back to school. But I got lucky and, seeing as he was hanging out with a mutual friend before calling it a night, I just...kind of...invited myself along haha. I was NOT going to let this one go. Anyway, we went back to his place to watch a movie, and I ended up staying until 6 in the morning!! And as soon as I was in my car, our mutual friend (who was a boy and staying at the FH's place) called and made fun of me for being a shameless flirt. Anyway, long story short, a week later he came and stayed with me at school for a weekend, and a little under a year later we are happily engaged!
