This Friday, May 21, Jared and I will have been married for five. Entire. Years.
Jared began humbly as "Lunch-break." The many boys in my phone were not known by their names, they were known simply by their place in my life or nicknames that my friends had given them.
Common examples include:
"Short but Hot"
and "Too Tan"
Jared was dubbed "Lunch-break" as his apartment was down the street from my work. On days when I wasn't hungry for food I would drive over to Jared's. A quick make-out session later and I was ready for the rest of the day, hence "Lunch-break."
The only problem with this system was my family and friends constantly slipped and referred to my dates as their nicknames........ To their face.
I knew things were getting serious when I changed his name to "Jared" in my phone.
After asking me to marry him on New Years Eve, I canceled my date with "Rapey Jake" figuring that my new fiance might not approve of me hanging out with someone who has "Rapey" in their nickname.
We got married.
And we lived happily ever after.
