Just 10 days after I posted the open note to him it finally happened. Calvin asked me to be his girlfriend. I said yes!
We had BIG plans for Saturday, November 27th. This was the day that we planned to go to my favorite restaurant, P.F. Changs, and then see Mike Epps' comedy show. Before we would head to the restaurant, we decided to play the Wii. We got caught up in the game and were a little late getting to the restaurant. This whole time he seemed a bit agitated and irritable so I tried not to say much. The last thing I wanted was for him to have an attitude and rain on the plans we made for the day. He said he was just hungry though and soon he'd be fine. He was right. We had a lovely dinner and continued with our plans. Right before the waitress brought the check he told me he had a letter. Now this guy isn't the letter writing type and sometimes I must admit it is really hard to tell when he's being serious. So I didn't believe him at first. Then he said "No really I wrote you a letter. Will you read it? I poured my heart and soul into it." I laughed...not knowing if he were serious or not. He then stated he was serious and pulled out a tightly folded piece of paper from his pocket. I hesitantly opened up the paper, not knowing what to expect. Then I found the words "Dear (insert my name), Will you be my girlfriend? -(insert his name) yes no maybe" Just as happy as could be, I took my pen and wrote "Of Course!!!" underneath the word yes and then checked that box three times! I gave the letter back to him. He was elated. Then he told me to write the date and time on the letter. We're eventually going to make a scrapbook. :-)
So this couldn't have been any more perfect. He's the man I envision when I think of my perfect mate. He possesses all of the qualities I desperately want. He's by far not perfect but he's perfect for me....at least for right now. Who knows what the future may hold? All I know is that it was the perfect way to start a relationship. He's amazing.
P.S. He bought me a really fly military style gray jacket. He likes me. . .a lot. *cheesing*
