The first picture Taylor and I ever took together for my Semi-Formal
Taylor and I went back to the same spot we met in the exact outfits we met in.
Since it’s Valentine’s week I thought I would dedicate a couple of blog posts about my relationship with Taylor. Today’s post is all about how we first met. Taylor and I met online…on a dating app….called Tinder (lol). That’s right, I am marrying the man I swiped right on! 😉
In October 2014 I was a junior at the University of Georgia. And at that time a little thing called Tinder was really popular. We both swiped right on each other and it was a match. Taylor messaged me first and I didn’t reply for two days, whoops! After we messaged each other for a little bit I didn’t respond for another two days (yikes). In my defense though, it was during midterms and I of course procrastinated and was busy with my last minute studying. Luckily, he was persistent. He messaged me again and I always made sure to respond after that. And from there we were messaging each other all the time.
A couple of weeks later, my brother came to visit me in college for the weekend. He wanted to have the college experience of going downtown where all the bars were and me and my friends were all going to go out that night with him. Taylor and I found out that we both were going downtown with our friends that night and we thought it was a perfect way to meet up in person.
I met up with Taylor outside of a bar later that night and mind you that my brother was there to witness it all! We hit it off immediately and I knew he was a keeper when he messaged me that night to see if me and my brother made it home safely AND when he asked me if I would like to go on a date with him the very next night. Most guys in college don’t want a serious relationship, let alone ask you out on an actual date – so I felt like I hit the jackpot!
On our first date Taylor took me out to dinner (where I ordered grape koolaid like the grownup that I am), bowling (where he beat me even though he claimed to have not bowled in “years”) and milkshakes at Steak n Shake (college budgets amiright?). And it was the best first date I ever had! I can’t believe it was almost four years ago!
How did you and your significant other meet? Was it off a dating app/site like me? 😉
