I Love You, And Stuff

| Denver, CO, USA | Romantic | December 27, 2011

(My boyfriend and I are driving. He has helped me to grow as a person, and I am trying to express that to him. I am notoriously unromantic.)

Me: “Thank you, so much.”

Boyfriend: “For what, honeysuckle?”

Me: “Everything. Before you came into my life, I was a lost puppy. You have helped me grow into an amazing person.”

Boyfriend: “Aw, that’s sweet!”

(He has a big smile one his face.)

Me: “I truly feel like you are the other half of me, the one that makes my world go round. The one that I want to see first thing in the morning, and all that crap.”

(He starts laughing.)

Boyfriend: “You almost had it, babe.”

Me: “You know it was honest, right?”

A Movie Engagement

| New York, NY, USA | Romantic | December 27, 2011

Boyfriend: “So, guess what we’re doing tonight?”

(He has been dangling this in front of me all day.)

Me: “I have no idea. None. Zip. Zilch. Nada. What are we doing?”

Boyfriend: *excited* “We’re going to see the Muppets movie!”

(I release an unintelligible, loud, incredibly excited scream.)

Girls across from us: “Congratulations!”

Boyfriend: *whispering* “I think that those girls thought that I just proposed to you.”

(I am at school with my girlfriend, not long before our nine-month anniversary. We stop to say hello to a teacher we both had years before. I decide to tell the teacher about our upcoming anniversary.)

Girlfriend and I: *together* “Hi, Mrs.[name]!”

Teacher: “Hi!”

Me: *hugging girlfriend* “Almost nine months!”

(Our teacher looks at me strangely, and covers her mouth with one hand.)

Me: *realizing what I said, and blushing* “Uh. since we started dating!”
