We decided to do the first dance, which ended up being reminiscent of our first date.

You see we had known each other for a couple of years before our first date but not well, we’d never spent any time alone or any real length of time face to face.
While we’ve come to know that we are incredibly similar people there is one big difference (and no not our height in this case) that seemed a big deal to me at the beginning, our ages.

Because of this I went in to our first date half wondering if this was a horrible practical joke about to backfire on him.

He came in to our first date thinking there was no way I would take him seriously.

We were both incredibly awkward, so awkward that it’s probably very surprising that we had our second date the next night, and since then have spent 1 single night apart. Neither of us liked that night apart and are quite happy that it has been the only one we’ve had apart.

So while we didn’t dance gracefully or break out into some amazing routine, I think it fit perfectly with who we are, two somewhat clumsy and occasionally awkward people who are very much in love dancing to our own tune.*

*Because you know when you’re both leading it’s a bit hard to dance to someone else’s tune.
