Yesterday was mine and Liam’s 4 year anniversary. Sometimes it amazes me how quickly time goes by, to think we met back at University as friends through a rock music society (yes, really!), and that we shared a screen writing class together where we barely spoke, but chatted instead on Facebook messenger where he came up with a clumsy, but successful excuse to get my number.
From then, we’d both go to the same alternative music club night on a Monday where pre-drinks would be hosted at mine with a group of our friends. I can’t remember how long it took for us to finally have the guts to have that first kiss – all I remember is that the night was dramatically fuelled by alcohol, especially when I thought he was interested in someone else.
Thanks to Milly of Mini Adventures, who stated what should have been obvious to me that Liam was interested in me, we reconciled and finally confessed we liked each other. N’awww.
Our first ‘date’ was a movie night (of course) where we watched Taken and This Is Spinal Tap. He’s going to hate me for saying this but he was so nervous to officially ask me to be his girlfriend. Most of the evening I could feel his heart pounding when I leant against his arm, but he finally plucked up the nerves and we became a couple on 25th January, 2010.
Since then, to cut a sappy story short, we practically lived together after a few months (I spent almost every night at his flat), then moved in together just us after Uni in 2011. Now, at the beginning of 2014 we are going to be moving into a house together! (Still rented, but a place we hope to make our own).
So how did we celebrate the anniversary? Well, we decided against gifts this year because we are trying to save for all the expensive costs of moving, but we thought we’d go for a meal at Azzuro in the evening followed by watching a film called Igby Goes Down (which despite an awesome cast featuring Kieran Culkin and Jeff Goldblum wasn’t very good!).
How did you meet your significant other?
