We’re in our early 30’s and started dating about 6.5 years ago when I accidentally hit on him through a work email (we work for the same company, though we don’t work together and never really have to see each other unless we want to). It wasn’t an accident as in I didn’t want to go out with him – I thought he was attractive and WAS interested in knowing more about him. It was an accident because I had a date that night with someone who I was casually dating and had no intention on hitting on him when I emailed that day about my computer (he’s in I.T.).
We moved in together a little over a year later, got engaged January 2009 at an icy waterfall, and got married September 2010 in Maui, Hawaii. So here we are – no kids (next year?), still in the apartment in which we initially moved in together in Victorian Village, and are looking to buy our first house sometime this year. We like our apartment well enough and LOVE the area in which we live, but we want a yard, a garage, and since we’re going to attempt to start a family at some point, we want to be in a school district where we can feel okay about sending our kid(s).
