My best friend/former roommate/former colleague is his cousin. We met at my best friend's vocal recital in college (she's an aspiring opera singer). A bunch of us drove over to the bar afterwards and I noticed he was paying a *little* more attention to me than everyone else at the table...I ended up asking him out one night on a different occassion involving copious amounts of alcohol in a dorm room (no funny business, honest!). Our first date was having brunch at that same bar in attempt to recover from our hangover, and cuddling on the couch watching Netflix while taking care of our friend who would not stop puking.
Fast forward 1.5 years, we are both out of college, have good paying full time jobs, and renting a house together. He is honest, hardworking, smart, neat, responsible with money, knows how to cook and is oh so HOT! I think I won the boyfriend lottery over here!
