Four Year Anniversary

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?

    Aww, happy anniversary πŸ™‚ I'm glad other people have those awkward moments at the beginning of their relationship when they don't know whether to initiate 'the talk' or not! I met my fiancΓ© online, I'd had too many bad experiences with men so thought I'd try something different. It worked! x

    Thanks so much sweetie πŸ™‚ Haha I think most people have those moments and a story to tell! Aww I'm so glad it worked out for you – I think finding love online is definitely becoming more popular now x

    Happy anniversary! I met Dave when I moved to Bristol and into a friend's spare room. My friend wasn't interested in showing me around the city, so he asked Dave to do the honours instead. And that was that!

    I'm a bit late but Happy Anniversary!
    My tale of meeting the other half involves a Pontins, alcohol and Andrew wearing make up. We were both in different carnival clubs and had both performed at Weston Super Mare Carnival that evening – it was the last procession of the year so everyone always goes back to the local Pontins for a 6 hour drunken party. Whereas I put my glad rags on, he stayed wearing his club tshirt and make up and a mutual friend got him to stumble into my chalet at 3 in the morning! It's still a joke now, almost 10 years later, that he was wearing make up when we met… πŸ™‚ x

    Aw sweet πŸ™‚

    I met mine through work. We all socialised a lot together and a few months after he started we went out on our own. I then got incredibly nervous and backed off, then spent the next two and a half years trying to claw my way back. We've now been together for nearly three and a half years and have been living together for most of that. Turned out building a friendship first was the best thing we could have done.

    Aww bless – can't imagine meeting a partner through work, but I guess it happens a lot!

    Building a friendship first is a lovely thing to do, so glad it worked out for you in the end x
