Rich & I are coming up on our one year anniversary. It's so exciting! We had both been single for quite awhile before we met each other. The way we met is kind of, what's the word I'm looking for...? Interesting, for lack of better word. We met on Saturday, May 4, 2013 through our mutual friend, Kevin. Kevin is my ex-best friend Nicole's baby-daddy/boyfriend. Kevin and Rich worked together at Lowes. We decided to do a "double-date" to ease the awkwardness of a "blind date". Rich & I actually lived 3 houses away from each other and never knew it. How funny is that? We all met up at the 99 in Hingham. Nicole, Kevin & I were first to arrive so we waited for Rich in the parking lot. He drove up in his truck and we checked each other out, Kevin and Rich talked for a minute and Rich backed his truck up to park. We walked in together (Rich & I). He was polite, easy to talk to and had a huge personality. Not to mention, absolutely gorgeous and tall! Tall, Dark & Handsome. Dinner went well, we got along great. I remember I wanted a coffee, and he gave me shit for drinking the 99 coffee. He said Dunkie's is way better. So I said that he'd have to take me to get a "real" coffee from Dunkie's sometime. As we were finishing up at the 99, Nicole & I went to the bathroom, leaving Kevin & Rich at the table. I told Nicole that I was very very interested in him and that he was awesome. I was soooooo so excited. (Come to find out later from Kevin that he told Kevin he wanted to "slam me" or "bang me" or something perverted...LOL. He asked me if I'd like to take a ride with him to Hanover to pick up some tools he let a co-worker borrow and get a coffee. I accepted his invite. We had a nice conversation and then he asked if I'd like to go back to his place to watch a movie. I said yes, of course! We put on the Hurt Locker. The movie led to making out, making out led to a night of mad, passionate sex. I went home the next morning feeling fucking great--after 4 years of complete abstinence--no contact with anyone. Fast forward to November 1, 2013. We moved into a great apartment in Hull with Maiden, my Miniature Pinscher. He's the best boyfriend, friend, confidant, most inspirational person I have ever had in my life. He brings out the best of me. I bring out the best of him. We make each other better people. He takes care of me. I'm a fucking lot to handle and he does it without complaint and such ease. He deserves everything he could ever want in this world. Which leads me to...What the hell do I get for him for a one year anniversary gift!?!?
