Welcome Monroe from Monroe With A Twist. She’s sharing her love story today.
When I was 20 I was totally DONE with guys. They were crap to me and I was sick and tired of feeling that I tried more than they did. I remember telling a girl at work that I just KNEW that the man for me wasn’t in Crestview, Florida…little did I know he was only 30 miles down up the road!
Michael and I met through a mutual friend that he worked with at Boeing. Our first date was a group date and we have seen each other EVERY day since then! lol Michael is 5 years older than I am and he swears that if I was any younger he wouldn’t have tried to meet me but WHATEVER!
Get this…and I know how crazy this sounds so you don’t have to tell me…we dated for 9mths, Michael told me of a job in Georgia that he was up for and in my head I was thinking that we would deal with it if it came to that. Well we played around with the idea of getting married because we were pretty sure he would get the job. We talked about going to the courthouse or having a small wedding or maybe even moving then getting married later. Well Mike bought the ring (he didn’t think I knew at the time but I worked at his bank…OMG I know totally horrible of me but we shared bank accounts by then…we worked fast lol). So I knew the question was coming. In the back of my mind I was asking myself, "Would he really be asking me this soon if he didn’t think he may lose me moving to Georgia?". It was a HUGE ordeal in my head…I didn’t tell Michael b/c of course he would say yes he would still be asking.
Well we found out a few weeks later the job got offered to someone with a military background. No big deal. Mike asked me to marry him a few weeks later in our bedroom of our town home. The next day the job got offered to him! To this day I swear that was God letting me know that Michael was the one for me and that whatever state we may end up he loved me then and will continue to love me forever. Mike is my rock. We moved to Georgia not even a month later and got married 9mths after that! We built our first home together and now have been married and living in Georgia for about 4 years! He’s my best friend and a wonderful provider. Ya know some people say "Oh he gets me"…well Michael doesn’t all the time and he will admit to that, BUT he accepts me no matter what and that’s the most important part.
