Aaron and Sara-
Our relationship has been a journey even though we are a fairly new couple. That’s why we want to share our story throughout our relationship. We want to share stories, advice, things to do and not to do….plus everything in between.
If he’s not calling you…
If he’s not marrying you…
If he’s not sleeping with you…
He’s just not that into you.
But I like a challenge. And fall of 2009, Aaron Walton became my challenge.
I admit if I tried I could get almost any guy I want. Sometimes I get guys I don’t want which is one of the down sides to that. It was our first college semester of freshman year in English 101, our class was pretty social I got three numbers within the first few days, I got walked to my second class daily, I got invited to parties, none of which were by Aaron.
For an in class assignment I ended up in a group with Aaron and a girl who he was always with, Sammy, which I thought was his girlfriend.
He was loud, talkative, and funny. He didn’t try to talk to me or get to know me or anything; he just focused on the assignment. I don’t remember what I was wearing that day but it must have been something unattractive because that’s never happened to me before. So I figured he must really be into Sammy. Although I have had guys hit on me while their girlfriends are there. Gross, I know.
We later became friends on Facebook that semester. Aaron finally asked me out for coffee at Starbucks after class. By then I had already been asked out by all of UNR, he was the last one.
I’m the kind of person who unless I’m intoxicated I’m really shy at first. So it was a bit awkward at first because of his outgoing personality. Our first outing was nice. Nothing special. Just nice.
He never called me after that.
Or Facebooked me.
He was obviously not interested. WHAAAAA? I guess there’s a first for everything. I’m lying that shit never happens to me.
Fall semester came to an end and I never heard from Aaron after our coffee date. When spring semester rolled around I was in my dorm room alone because my bitch of a roommate dropped out, that’s another story. Anyways I was alone that night and looking for something to do while scrolling through my phone book I came upon Aaron’s name so I texted him wondering what he was up to.
He said he was going to a party and asked if I wanted to come. I’m always down to party so why not? The party was a bust but I got closer to Aaron. He wasn’t just someone I just wanted to like me. He started to become someone I wanted to get to know.
We got pretty damn baked and on our way home there was a snow blizzard. When we made it back to the dorms I offered him to come inside because it was really snowy and he lived about 30 mins away.
He said no.
Who am I fooling I really asked him to come with me because I didn’t want to be alone. The snow played maybe a small factor.
Rejected again? This never happens to me.
So I was alone that night.
We went on a bowling date, which was really fun even though I suck at bowling and he lied and said he did too but he was actually pretty good.
I kissed him.
And he kissed me back. It was a real kiss too not just a polite kiss back. Despite the fact that he denied me before. I knew I wanted him to be mine. It just felt right.
After that night I started inviting him to my room. Sometimes it would be after I went out to a party so I was a little tipsy…I lied I was shit faced; I almost fell down the damn stairs. Embarrassing? Yes. Attractive? No. Well fuck right?
He never wanted to have sex and started to pull all the tricks. What.the.fuck.right? It bothers me till this day. I never get rejected for sex and this kid said no like it was his name. He says it was because he didn’t want to mess things up but I don’t believe that, I think there was someone else on the side but whatever.
The whole point of this story was to say that you always want what you can’t have. But I believe with a little…or a lot of work you’ll be able to have it in the end and it will be your greatest treasure. I fought for this boy. I got rejected. I was alone. And everything in between but I wouldn’t change it for the world. I would do it all over again if I had too because all of that work led me to the greatest boyfriend ever. I couldn’t ask for more.
How I met Sara Kam, wow well where do I even start? We had English 101 that’s the first time I ever saw her and to be completely honest I thought that she was way out of my league and I still think that is true. She is a 10 and I’m a 6. She sat in the front row and I sat in the very back, she never noticed me or talked to me and she was always way to busy with the other better-looking people in the class (Mike and Derek).
I remember the first time that we spoke, we were doing a workshop on a class assignment and we were in a group together. I was being my normal self, making jokes and she was laughing the whole class period. Shortly after that she added me as a friend on Facebook. Don’t get it twisted she will say that I added her but I clearly remember accepting the friend request and checking out all of her pictures, creepy I know but I couldn’t help my self, she is sexy.
We started talking over Facebook and I suggested that we meet up and get some coffee after class one day. When she said “yes” I was ecstatic. I couldn’t believe that a girl like her would even consider going on a date with me. We exchanged phone numbers and the next day we walked to Starbucks. I ordered a coffee and she ordered a green tea, she mentioned that she didn’t like coffee and right away I thought that I picked a bad date. I talked the entire time and she barely said anything. Naturally I thought that she didn’t like me but she’s going to say something like “oh I was just shy,” but if you know Sara then you know that this isn’t true and that she is very outgoing.
After that date we didn’t speak for months, she went home for the holidays and I didn’t hear from her until new years, when I got the generic text that said “Happy new years.” I didn’t think anything of it.
A few more months went by and spring semester started. One night I was on my way to a house party and she texted me out of the blue saying something like hi or how are you doing. I told her I was well and that I was on my way to a party. I don’t recall exactly what she said to me after that but I ended up picking her up and taking her to the party with me. I remember it being quite awkward because I didn’t want to screw anything up like I did on the first date. We smoked and I got her a beer witch I’m pretty sure was entirely foam. We hung out the entire night and I had a good time but she again was pretty quiet. After dropping her off at the dorms she asked if I was okay to drive and asked me if I wanted to stay with her for the night. I said no because I didn’t want to do something that would jeopardize me getting to see her again. I drove home and that was the end of it.
Some days later we went on what I like to remember as our first legit date, bowling. I thought it would be perfect, everyone likes to bowl, and there was no coffee involved. We played a couple of games and flirted here and there. She looked incredible and I didn’t want it to end. Towards the end of the date she threw her arms around me and we shared our first kiss, it was electrifying. I can’t recall a better feeling than that first kiss. After bowling I didn’t want the date to end so we drove the Mccarren loop a.k.a the long way home, imma pimp like that :)
After that date the rest is history, we hit it off and since then we have kind of been together. <3
