I’m normally not a mushy person, I don’t care about receiving flowers or going on fancy smanshy dates, hey I’m all for take out and staying home at times! So this holiday is blah to me. Valentines day has never been a favorite holiday of mine, in general I could care less about it. I am sure a lot of you feel this way and some enjoy it, which is great too. I however, will get a little mushy here for a second because I love my babe, and although I am not into celebrating this holiday I do feel like I should share the story on how we met and why I love him so much. So are you ready for a ratchet mess of a story lol …..One night at a mutual friend (Luis) birthday get together at Static Lounge (Astoria Queens which back then it wasn’t a gay bar but now is). Even though it was a friend’s birthday, I did not want to go out at all. I was just getting over a breakup and to be honest I wasn’t in the mood to hit lounges or bars and deal with more losers and just in general I just wanted to stay home and be a fat ass! My friend Jessica insisted I’d go out with her and that we would just go for a little bit to hang. She made me go out and have fun for the night, instead of staying home. While being dragged there ….. (literally), we met up with Luis and some friends. Thomas was there and obviously started scoping me out and decided to approached me a few times. We were at the bar and we were drinking like lunatics because it was open bar all night (since we paid a cover charge at the door). Jessica and I were talking and he kept coming over and trying to talk to us, just casual conversation but I was letting Jessy do most of the talking back lol (I was so over guys shit). After a couple of rounds of Red Devils, I was drunk off my ass. Obviously Thomas still thought I was hot (haha) and he came over again but this time he pulled me away from Jessy and started talking to me. I honestly don’t remember much of what we talked about because I was a hot mess but we mingled, danced, drank, chatted some more, and I even fell twice into his arms and well ….. the floor (haha), no seriously I was dancing and fell twice and he was there to help me up each time lol. Later at the end of the night we exchanged numbers on a paper napkin (because Thomas’s phone was “dead”) but it really was, at the time I didn’t believe him but now that I see how he never charges his phone I believe it and eventually we went on their first date at Tacu Tacu restaurant and lounge.
We have been together ever since and honestly I am truly blessed! Never did I imagine I would meet my soul mate this way. I am also thankful for Jessy forcing me out of my funk to go out too. After almost four years I am still as happily in love with him since the first day I met him and he is truly a blessing to me, sometimes I feel like he is too good to be true and I thank god for him everyday. I can’t wait to marry him. So yea, this is the story of us 🙂 hope it wasn’t too ratchet!
