“We were in the gym, and I didn’t know who he was at the time. He left a cup of coffee on exercising boxes I wanted to use. I asked him to move it, and he just looked at me, so I said to him, ‘get your stuff of the boxes.’ He moved it. He didn’t know that my mom worked at the gym, and he didn’t really know who I was. He went and asked my mom who I was, and my mom said ‘that’s my daughter.’ We kept seeing each other at the gym, and eventually became best friends. Two and a half years later we decided to try dating. Right now, we are at different places in our lives, but I think we will end up together in the end.”
