Meet the Boyfriend

Filed Under:

This is Nick, and to the left is what he looks like as a cartoon. (Although, I drew this a while back and he's gotten a haircut since then.)

Now, how do I describe him? Well, first off, he's lived in quite a number of places: England, Belgium, the US, South Africa, and Canada. As a result of that, he can speak English, Dutch, Afrikaans, German, and French. He also has the most adorable accent. :)

I feel that this picture is a good representation of what we are like in real life. The black cat (me) sees something shiny far off into the distance, and starts to get up in order to chase it. Meanwhile, the orange cat (him) comes and holds the black cat down because that shiny thing is actually a car.

The first time we met was in Grade 9 when our school was getting ready to go to a music competition. I had only heard stories of the legendary Nicholas before... apparently, he sold his soul to a friend in order to get a cheeseburger... because he was hungry. If you ask him, he will tell you that he merely LENT his soul, but that's not what I heard.

We really got to know each other through our part-time jobs as math tutors at the same location. When we were supposed to be marking, we found out that apart from some of our musical tastes (he likes metal, I like cheesy 90s pop... S Club 7 is awesome, okay?), we were really quite similar!

Nick asked me out in March of last year, after apparently 6 months of deliberation. :P Since then, we have been called "attached at the hip". I will have you know that our hips are not actually attached. He's one of the main reasons my 2009 was so amazing, and I feel that I have become a better person since then. I would say that Nick is one of the most comforting and motivational people I know.

This Valentine's Day, we plan to go out for dinner, and then just snuggle and watch a cheesy movie.

Do you have a significant other? What are your plans for Valentine's Day? Share your stories!

    Awww... You guys are so cute together.

    I have a great significant other, but we probably won't celebrate Valentine's Day. We both find it too commercial. But... on the 25th of February we will it will be our 600th day together. I didn't count that, WolframAlpha did that for me, but still, it's way cooler to celebrate that. :D

    You guys look adorable and sweet together! I can sense your happiness from the photograph. :)

    I do have a significant other - Chewy. I shall write up a post in the next few weeks to satisfy your curiosity. :P

    We didn't really celebrate Valentine's this year, just a simple meal at Sushi Tei and that's about it. We had fun though! I cracked lots of jokes that day which was really rare since I'm not really a humorous person. ;)

    V-Day has been and gone now (here), and I spent it just like any other day, heh. I'm sans a significant other, which is perfectly fine, of course.

    You guys are so cute, by the way :D
