When I met Ines (yes, it was a blind meeting) I was hoping to get to the predetermined meeting place before her. That way if I wasn't attracted to her I could slip away without being noticed. I try not to be a jerk, sometimes it just happens. Anyway, she came up to me as I was walking and introduced herself (I still remember what she was wearing, it was awesome). I was taken back by her exotic beauty and from that point on I would have done anything she asked. I'm glad she has high morals because it would have been difficult to push off any advances. I think she always knew that I was shy and didn't have the greatest self-esteem, but she was very open with me and put me at ease. The first date was incredible and we said how much we liked each other. However, the way I remember the whole boyfriend/girlfriend thing was like this...
After spending the morning at the ocean (Sunset Beach, I think) we went to Taco Bell, as Ines said in her timeline. I believe a Taco Bell employee took notice of me and built up a quick infatuation. She asked Ines if I was her boyfriend, and Ines grabbed my arm and said yes. I thought it was just understood from that time on that we were together. The rest of the timeline seems correct...I'm a fast mover. Long engagements are for the birds. We had business to attend to. I really LOVE Ines with all my heart and I'm so grateful she let a dork like me marry her.
Happy Anniversary 3 days later.
P.S. I know the Taco Bell worker was "special," but she really was infatuated with me!
