Anonymous asked: How did your boyfriend ask you out?
I’m going to merge this question with another question asking how I met my boyfriend as well :) I think I’ve answered this before but I guess I’ll tell the whole story lmao.
It all started on myspace lol right during the first few days of January 2009 It had to have been around the 3rd or 4th. I was browsing around and I saw Jacob and randomly sent him a friend request. I’m not gonna lie, his profile picture of him playing bass during one of his shows really caught my eye lol. So he accepted my friend request and I think I waited a day or two to actually talk to him. I was soo scared! But I took a chance and sent him a comment probably introducing myself. Honestly, I didn’t think he would ever comment back! I used to be really insecure with my looks and let’s just say my self-esteem wasn’t the greatest either so I didn’t think I was pretty enough for him lmfaoo.
So I waited and after a while I checked my profile and it said I had a notification for a new comment and picture comment! (lmaoo i’m smiling right now because I still remember it soo well. And omg, who still uses myspace anymore? lol) So I check and I start fangirling because it was from Jacob! (I was at a friend’s house btw and she looked at me like I was absolutely crazy!) He said I was really pretty in one of my pictures and I started blushing lol.
So I commented on one of his back and from then on we just started commenting back and forth until finally, he asked for my number. That’s when we started texting. Just texting. At first, we were just talking about random things. I remember talking about food with him and how he used to like Whitney Port lol. I told him that I saw her in the city one time (I live in NY and he lives in Texas) and he started going crazy and asked me to help him find her. I was soo jealous but I kept my cool lmfaoo. But eventually we started flirting with each other. We would constantly give each other compliments and call each other cute pet names :DD We texted for a couple of months until one day, we just stopped. It was sudden, and I don’t remember it too well but we just stopped talking to each other. I think he told me that it had something to do with his ex but no one cares about her so moving on :) lol. Soo yeahh, we didn’t talk for a while and at one point I think he deleted his myspace but regardless, I still missed him. I missed him even after months of not talking to him and thought about him all the time. Like I would constantly think about what went wrong. I honestly thought he got bored of me and just moved on but don’t worry, that wasn’t the case :) I think we started talking again that summer but it was pretty brief. Probably a conversation or two. and after that, the only time I said anything to him was when I wished him a happy birthday in September.
It wasn’t until the very end of October where we started talking again. He actually found me on facebook! Funny story about how that happened, but that’s another story to tell :)
Okay so I accepted on fb and I was being friendly because I honestly didn’t know if he was seeing someone or not. I get a notification saying I had a profile pic comment and its him saying”you’re soo pretty :D” lol I remember it exactly! Ohh okay and then that’s when he tells me to add his new myspace! So the next day i’m at school in homeroom and I get a message on fb from Jacob telling me to text him sometime with his number. So I was all freaking out right and I didn’t know if I should immediately text back or wait a while. I waited three periods and texted him in my sociology class lol. I told him I missed him and he told me he missed me too and didn’t think I would actually text him. That was early November. So we texted for a couple of days until he told me he was upset that I never called him. Idk if he was really upset, or if that was just his way of making me call him on the phone lmfaoo. Now mind you, we had NEVER spoken on the phone before, just texted. So of course, I was freaking out and all nervous because I don’t really talk to guys on the phone right? That whole day that I planned to call him, I was nervous and trying to think of things to say and I started getting butterflies! I finally got the courage to do it and as soon as I heard his voice, I got so shy! omg I sounded like such a dork too! I told him we should get to know each other so I asked him what his freakin favorite color was! lmfaoo. I was literally like ohh crap, I did not just ask him that! XD After that, we talked and texted every single day and we both admitted that we liked each other. How we had always liked each other. And when we would talk on the phone, I was completely at ease. He was sweet, charming, and completely hilarious! Oh and there was soo much flirting going on! <333 After a couple of days of talking, I knew I was starting to fall for him already. Oh my gosh I liked him soo much!
One night, he said, “I need to ask you something.” (it was November 10th) and I kept pestering him to tell me but he wouldn’t! it drove me crazy! lol. He said he would tell me the next day and that he didn’t want to get rejected. Me being oblivious to everything, I didn’t know what he was referring to so I would just keep pressuring him to tell me but he didn’t :( The next night, we were talking on the phone and I told him to ask me what he was gonna ask me. But he had to do it that night because I made him pinky promise the night before to tell me and you can’t break a pinky promise :D Ohh I almost forgot! I have this thing about 11:11. I ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS have to make a wish! I don’t care what i’m doing, I just HAVE to. So after I made my wish, Jacob was like delaying asking me until I made him ease up a little bit. And then that’s when he asked me to be his girlfriend! He was soo adorable about it though because he sounded all nervous and cute! <333 He knew 11:11 meant a lot to me, so he made sure to ask me on November 11 (11/11) <333333
And now 20 months later, here we are <3 It’s funny looking back at that now because we didn’t know that we both liked each other early on! I liked him but I didn’t think/know he liked me and vice versa. We always think that if we had just come right out with our feelings when we started talking, we’d have been together back then. But I know that I would NEVER EVER change or take back anything! I love you baby <3
