Love is in the air

It must be that Spring has sprung, but there seems to be a lot of romance in the air. There is office romance in GreenLineBoy's world, and in Notbubbly's, and even sort of in SoCal Sweetie's. The newly-styled Double-A has passed the parent test...and love seems to be blooming all around.

This brings me to three random stories about people I know that none of you will care about at all...lol. How is that for trying to hold your attention? I am not sure what the lessons are here...I will see if I can think of one as I go along.

The first is that last night I saw two people that I introduced that have been dating for almost a year and a half now. ("Introduced" is a really funny word...you will have to ask offline for more details on that:-P). I was at Munchkin's baseball game...they won and she got two hits...and they were out for a walk and stopped in to chat for a bit. They moved in together about six months ago and things seem to be going really well.

I get a really nice feeling about them because I feel like I kinda "own" a piece of their relationship. I root for them because I like both of them, but I also root for their relationship because I feel like I have some stake in it. Weird? There is a guy at work who is engaged to a girl that I introduced to him...and I feel kind of the same way about them. ("Introduced" has a funny meaning there, too...but not as good as the first one.)

Maybe I should be a matchmaker:-D

The second are two people that I went to college with who are getting married soon. The only reason they are notable is that their relationship is kind of backwards. You know how really, really brilliant guys in lucrative fields, even if they are kind of normal looking, end up with incredibly hot women? Well, these two work the other way...lol. He is, probably, the hottest guy I have ever met. I spent four years in college watching a string of the most beautiful girls you can imagine absolutely throwing themselves at him. (He is also a really nice guy, and I always liked him.)

And she is so NOT like the girl I would have pictured him with. This is not to say she is at all unattractive...she is very pretty in a "I'm WAY to smart to stoop to spending four hours getting ready to go out every night" kind of way. She gives off sort of a bohemian, chick-lit style vibe (that makes no sense, does it?) She is also incredibly funny, with a really quick, sarcastic sense of humor. She was a Chemical Engineering major who works really hard and spends her time now creating new industrial cleaning solvents. I guess if you can't maintain a sense of humor while you are doing that...

Anyway, they met in a bar towards the end of our senior year, and he fell really hard for her. Virtually right off the bat he was completely smitten. It took her a little longer, partially I think because she didn't take him that seriously. Eventually he wore her down to the point that she committed, though (he did have the absurd hotness working for him...) and they are getting married soon. I am really happy for both of them...she is a great, great girl, and she deserves to have a hot piece of arm candy:-) And he is a super nice guy who deserves someone who makes him laugh and think all the time.

[In the interest of brevity, they each may come off as a bit stereotypical there...SHR, you wanna chime in if I got them wrong?]

And finally, an update on The Body, who just moved back to Phoenix for the summer to help out with her Dad, Step-mom and their brand new twins (and, what is it...like 50 other children?) She is being a really great big sister and a really great daughter and I admire her a lot for it. AND...she has started dating one of our very best friends. A super cute, red-headed boy that I count as one of my very favorite people on Earth.

Right after she moved back, they went out to catch up (I would classify them as "very close friends") and there were some sparks:-) I guess the time away from seeing each other every day created something, so they have a bit of a thing! I hope it goes well for both of them, because I love them both very dearly:-)

Anyway, those are my three random stories that none of you probably care about. Whatever...I will care when I go back and read this in like six months, and THAT, my friends, is what really matters!!!

Reading about other people's stories ARE fun to read about, even if you don't think they are fun for us to read, we enjoy it! (Or I do at least!) And blogging for yourself is the only thing that matters...=]

LeiselB said...

Sheesh!!! You make it sound like she is a troll and he is a shallow gold-digger!

I would say that she is very pretty in a natural, low-maintenance kind of way. And he is substantial enough to both interest her and to appreciate what a totally badass chick she is!!!

I do have to agree with you on his absolute gorgeousness. I get weak-kneed thinking about him:-)

Why no pony stories this week?
