A freshman in college, at 17, I could never have known the long haired redhead, Bobby, my friends were introducing me to would become my husband. I was already dating someone else, at college 60 miles away, which happened to be the same college Bobby attended. Bobby was not seeing anyone at the time and as he continued to visit my friends (dating his roommates), we became friends.
Sophomore year I transferred to attend a larger school, and be with my boyfriend. Unfortunately, we broke up shortly after. Months passed and Bobby and I became better friends, running into each other on campus, local bars, and at parties. It was at one of those parties that things changed.
The party, it turned out, was being thrown by two guys living off campus. My high school girlfriend was in town and knew one of the guys, so she and I went. Bobby, on the other hand, was a high school friend of the other guy, so he went. Neither of us knew the other was going.
After about 2 hours, and not knowing a lot of people there, Bobby and l left together to go to a local bar and talk. We wound up closing the place and he drove me back to the dorm, walking me up to my room. As we said goodnight, he leaned over and kissed me. He said he’d call me (something you did back then, pre-cell phones).
A month later, for my 19th birthday, we had our first planned date. Before going to our usual campus hang out, bar with dancing, he asked where I wanted to eat and introduced him to Chinese food, something he’d never had. The night went fabulously, and although we never actually planned it, we’ve seen each other every night since.
