When I first met InLove, he pursued me for quite some time before I gave in. Not because I wasn’t attracted to him, but because he’s a guy whose job is in the field of fitness. Like, by the time I’ve hit the snooze button four times, he’s already done his run, or yoga, or strength training, and he’s managed to put coffee on my nightstand to lure me into waking up.
Don’t get me wrong, i love the way I am. I go to zumba twice a week, I lift weights at home, I walk downtown, I go for hikes. On top of that, I’m snarky, sarcastic, well-read, witty, and have a contagious laugh. But I’m a chubby girl. What the hell does Mr. Does-Anyone-Want-To-Train-For-Another-Tough-Mudder want with me?
Turns out, everything.
He wants to hike with me and go on wine walks in the evening. He sneaks pictures of the sunset shining through my hair when I’m not looking. He’ll spend hours in the pouring rain building planter boxes and turning compost for my garden. He likes to take pictures of me and doesn’t mind when I delete most of them. He loves my children as his own. Sometimes, I even catch him watching me sleep. But, like, not in a creepy way.
So, two and a half years later, this guy still totally digs me. Just like this. I kind of like him too.
A sexy and adorable submission, a long but very sweet write up with a classically beautiful photo to match it. I’m glad you both have found so one you match and fit so well with. Thanks for sharing some of your romance with us.
