Theresa

Thanks again for the encouragement and kind thoughts. The last post was pretty depressing again so let's talk about someone who always makes me smile, my girlfriend Theresa.

We met in High School but never really interacted with one another until our final year. This wasn't much of a surprise as our interests were rather different and so were our personalities. Obnoxious, loud and derpy Damian contrasts with quiet, polite and demure Theresa.


Wow, I'm gorgeous.

I wasn't really looking for a relationship at the time. I was pretty fed up with girls after being rejected by a lesbian and then several months later being dumped by another girl in just three days. That would change at a party. A fellow classmate had rented out a cabin by a lake and invited everyone to go. And while everyone was getting drunk, the following conversation happened between Theresa and I.

Damian: *Obnoxious comment about fellow student*
Theresa: *Eye roll and sigh of disapproval*
D: What was that for?
T: Nothing.
D: You dislike him just as much as I do, what was that for?
T: Seriously, nothing.

Oh Damian, you charmer you.

I was persistent in figuring out why she had acted so coldly to me. Could have been the alcohol in my blood, maybe I was bored but whatever the reason I ended up following her around which is really creepy in retrospect. She didn't care and eventually we started talking about life, ourselves, anything possible and found out we had a lot more in common than we first thought. I still remember standing beside her while we watched the sunrise over the lake.

Meanwhile, the rest of our classmates were puking in garbage bags or passed out so I think I did pretty well.

Awesome.

We ended up talking a lot more and decided to see what would happen if we unofficially hooked up. We were both aware that High School relationships didn't usually go well (if our friends were any indicator), had pretty bad relationships in the past and had no idea what we were getting into.

Thirteen days later I take her out for lunch and ask if she'd actually be my girlfriend.

She said yes.

And we've been happily together for 3 years and 2 months now (or if you want the creepy answer: 1172 days, 21 hours, 56 minutes and 11 seconds as of this post). 

Yeah, clearly in the creepy category

I used to be told that no one would ever want to date me (and rightfully so) but here I am, defying the odds with a beautiful, smart and funny woman who loves me back. She means the world to me and nothing warms the leftovers of my heart more than her smile.

If there is any interest I could also share the story about my two other failed attempts at a relationship. I don't mind, I actually find them kind of funny now. But that's only if my readers are interested, I don't want to bore any of you.

  13. Oh, and in regards to your last comment: I'm very glad to know that my suspicions that you were of Chinese descent have been proven accurate.

    After all, YOU WORRY excessively about education, which means there's a 95% chance that you're Asian.

  14. Congratulations, you're lucky to have a girl with you.

  15. It's only really when you find yourself not caring about getting someone that you get someone. Where the hell is my someone?!? Kidding. But what I said first tends to be true. Anyway, well done :) I'd be kinda interested in the other stories if you were wanting to share.

  35. I met a girl once on spring break, her name was Theresa, she had the same birthday as me. We just clicked. We made out on the elevator for about an hour. We went up and down in the elevator. then went back to my hotel room.

  36. You can write. I want to hear more.

    ReplyDelete
  37. OMG, hilarious - but the pic is super creepy!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Thanks for dropping by my blog thought I would come and have a look at yours. So what do I have to say well 3yrs 2 months is nothing to sneeze at now days when so many young people are in and out of relationships every few months or so..........

    As someone who has been with the love of her life for 28yrs now I can say it takes patience and love for relationships to go the distant.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Everytime I come to this blog, that image cracks me up.

    ReplyDelete

  46. I LOLed hard at the Robert Pattison one

  47. That last picture reminded me of my grade 12 biology class, when we dissected a cow heart. My teacher stuck his fingers in the Aorta and used walked around like he had a finger puppet.

    Thats a long time for a relationship though, hopefully it goes for longer!

    ReplyDelete
  48. I'm a sucker for sweet posts like these so I was smiling the whole way through and loved the awkward conversation you both first had. It's sweet and on the post it's the general consensus that summer was much more amazing as a kid, but I was pretty outdoorsy so that's why I may be slightly more disappointed. Didn't see the last post, but I hope whatever is getting you down clears up soon. xxx

  49. What a sweet story! I'd be interested in the other stories, too.

    Awesome pictures. Especially the one with the bird. I almost choked on my water when I saw that one.

  56. The heart picture is pretty awesome, and it's always funny to think back to the first time you met someone who now means so much to you.

    "Meanwhile, the rest of our classmates were puking in garbage bags or passed out "
    Had to snort/chuckle at that.
