I just talked about my 15-year California-versary a few weeks ago and 15 years ago today, I met J. So, you do the math. We met right around three weeks after I arrived here. It would be a while until we became a couple, but I had no idea at that time that he would swoop me off my feet and that I would end up moving to the US permanently because of him. Our first encounter wasn’t quite the usual “girl-meets-boy-at-a-party” situation. I wrote about where we met here and how we met here.
We don’t really have a date when we “officially” became a couple, so we usually go by our “meet-aversary” date and we always try to do something special (wish usually ends up being a dinner date with sushi – ha!). Sometimes we go back to the exact same spot where we crossed paths so many years ago.
In all these years we’ve been together now, there were some up and downs and hard times, including a long-distance relationship for the better part of 3 years, and life hasn’t always been easy (is it for anybody?), but there has also been so much laughter and happiness and I don’t have a single doubt in my mind that I made the right decision way back when I said “yes” to this adventure.
I am still baffled that it’s been 15 years already.
How long have you been with your significant other? How did you meet?
