That night when I got home from canoeing I looked for him on facebook. (Oh, puh-lease, like you don't do it). Luckily, this was way back in the day before facebook cared about privacy and allowed proper stalking. So I did. Looking through his stuff, I realized he seemed kind of familiar... I said, "I feel like I know this kid." Which was all the motivation I needed to send him a friend-request. The next day between classes I got on my facebook to see, that he'd confirmed my request. I wrote on his wall, in the cutest, flirtiest way possible. After a few back and forth comments, I confirmed, what I'd known since Mike had been talking about him in the canoe. I was going to date this boy. (Too bad he didn't know it yet...)
For the next couple weeks I used my wiles to get him to meet me for a few minutes in Fulton, and sit alone through half a jazz concert, and talk to me and text me. Then finally, with his boyish charm he asked me, "So ya wanna be my girlfriend?" on May 9, 2008. And the rest, as they say, is history.
Moral of this story?? Emily knows what she wants, and gets it. :)
And in the spirit of being lovey dovey, here are a few of my favorite pictures of us!
