sean + bekah: together

September 2, 2013

This is the sixth in a series telling our "love story." The story begins with a prequel here.

After nearly two months of talking, our second date ended successfully with a chaste kiss.

As it turns out, neither of us are the "date around" type. The awkward, obligatory, DTR talk (define-the-relationship) was quick to ensue as a result.

Him: So, uh, I was wondering if things were official between us?
Me: If you want them to be...
Him: Do you want them to be?

Just like teenagers. It's a good thing we don't date around because we certainly wouldn't have gotten far.

Our first Navy football game together - Sept. 2005
Anyhow, the relationship was defined with February 23 as the official start date. Now the real fun could start:
  • Coordinating my retail management job with his 9-5 (just like my most recent job, eesh!)
  • Driving over the OLD Woodrow Wilson bridge, turning what should be an hour commute into two or more. (DC people know all about this!)
  • Wondering how we would see each other  on the weekends the bridge was closed for construction (praise the Lord, they built a new one that has reduced my desire to rip my hair out!)
  • Meeting his dad and getting the sex talk after only two months of dating (awkward!)
  • Spending entire days at his volleyball tournaments just to be together.

When he met my mom. Our first ever picture together!
Of course, we know the positives definitely outweighed the negatives in our case. Dating long distance was hard, but we made it work for over three years and through all sorts of transitions until I made my way across the beltway to Maryland to finish school.

You all know how the story ends, but come back next week to see how we got there in the series wrap-up!

Myrtle Beach. One of many fun family trips!
