As I mentioned in my previous blog, one year ago today I started talking to NH. I had seen him at church a few times, and he caught my eye...I am an only child so I'm pretty good at doing whatever it takes to get what I want! He was a friend of our preachers son, so I text Janet (our preachers wife, and a close friend) and tried to get some quick info on him. She gave me a few minor details, and then gave me his number and told me to text him...lol. That was sooo not my style, but I thought it was worth a shot.
"Hey, I know this is totally random...and not me at all...but I've never had the nerve to come up to you and actually introduce myself at church, so Janet gave me your number. My name is Lacey...and I'd love to talk to you...get to know you a bit...you now have my number if interested! :)"
Slightly ballsy, and a bit stalkerific (totally not a word, but I love it)...but it worked! For 7 months we continued talking/dating and built a friendship, I developed so much patience over that 7 months...good lord! I wanted a relationship, (well, mostly to be FB official...gay...lol) but he wasn't ready. Then in November of last year everything fell together. The past 5 months have been amazing, I honestly don't want to imagine my life without him in it.
