This is incredibly long. I am not sure if anyone will take the time to read it, but as I started typing, I realized how therapeutic it is to write out all these thoughts and feelings. I never did an official intro. It took me several weeks to realize that was even a thing and then after that, I felt weird about officially introducing myself on a wedding forum since FH and I hadn't actually decided to go through with our big dream wedding. So I decided way back then that I would wait until we made our decision and then maybe do an official intro.
(Usually) I am an actor and FH is a stage manager. We met in 2009 when I flew from Philly to CO to do the musical RENT for a 12 week gig at a theater I had never worked at before. We started hanging out just in the groups as you do and then started hanging out a bit more and then about two and a half weeks before my contract was over, he kissed me. (Cont'd in comments)
