Dating Disasters: Dumping hot chocolate in my face, say what?!


Okay so this is my first link up! I found this link up on Erin from Two Thirds Hazel's blog (love her)! You are supposed to talk about anything dating-related, from dates from hell to how you met the man of your dreams. I will be talking about both!! Here are a few "low-lights" from my past college relationships:

  • The guy who told me I was "well-behaved" after we went to the beach one day (wait, what? Am I 5 years old? I promise I didn't normally "misbehave," geez)
  • The guy who told me he wanted to dump my hot chocolate in my face at Cracker Barrel, simply because I ordered it in July (it is freezing in there and I ordered it with my breakfast!)
  • The guy who cheated on me while I was away at school, with about 5 other girls.
  • And, saving the best for last, the guy who got a girl pregnant while we were broken up and didn't tell me about it until wayyyy after we got back together! This is also the guy who told me he was working and instead had a party, who got a DUI (ugh!) without telling me, and oh so much more. What a winner! He always came crawling back with a sob story and I fell for it like a dumdum lollipop!

As you can tell I dated some real winners in the past!! Thank God I found my amazing boyfriend of the past 3.5 years, Brian! We started living together a year ago, and I am just so lucky to have him! How we met is actually a pretty interesting story too: 

Back in 2009 in my senior year college, Brian and I had a mutual friend named Kevin who was in one of my classes at York College. Brian went to Lehigh (about 2 hours away) and he is from NJ. My Dad's whole side of the family is also from NJ, and when we traveled up there for Thanksgiving as we do every year, Kevin asked if I wanted to come hang out with him and a few friends late Thanksgiving night. Brian was one of those friends! 

Brian was the D.D. and when I got in his car, I immediately asked his middle name (it's Robert) and proceeded to call him Bobby (that nickname is what I called him for the first couple months of our relationship, and it is still in my phone!). On the way to the party, I was nauseous in the backseat of his car (I get really car sick, especially on windy roads-- I swear I had not been drinking yet). Brian was so sweet, and told me it was okay if I threw up in his car (don't worry, I didn't)! I thought that was just the nicest thing ever (even though he has since told me he would have totally thought that was gross). We started texting almost immediately after that weekend, and the rest is history! It's funny how that story has evolved though, because apparently Brian's cousins heard that the story was that Brian my holding my hair back when I was, how did his uncle put it, "overserved"... uhh what?!? NOT the story at all!

Anyways, here are a few of my fav pics of us:
