Since the day that I and hubby became bf-gf (we actually called each other boyfriend/girlfriend), I believe that I have always seen hearts everywhere. So I thought I’ll tell you about our love story for this topic.
A couple will be getting married in our church. And I was asked to sing a duet together with a brother that I haven’t met yet. Then one night, going home from a singles activity, I was approached by a brother and he said it would be best if we’ll have a date first before we go practicing for our duet. That’s our first meeting.
Sometime in May 2001 was our first date. He was late and looked “turn-offy.” He looked untidy, not shaved and his shirt looked boring. Surprisingly, our date venue was something special. We went to Cloud 9 in Antipolo with a dating couple. We had the chance to watch the breathtaking sunset. I fell in-love “with the scene.” On our way home, I was surprised that on our first date, he’s telling me about his life and how he became a Christian. I was compelled to tell him about mine too.
Weeks following that, we went to their house for practices. The wedding came and the duet was a success.
When we met again for our devotional, he gave me one kilo of grapes. He heard that I got sick. I was surprised but didn’t want to put malice on his brotherly kindness. I’ve no idea that he’s courting me already.
Then one Sunday, I was standing in front of the cinema, waiting for the start of the worship (as I’m part of the music ministry). The light was on my face and I can’t see clearly the people sitting. I spotted a guy who looked new to me so I covered the light with my hand. First look, second look. I was surprised that it was him looking very handsome with his new haircut and shaven face. (wwaaahhh kinikilig ako!) I turned to look somewhere like there’s nothing interesting. But deep inside I feel like fainting.
He asked me again for our second date in July. I don’t know why his eyes got big when he talked to me. I forgot where we had that group date. But I know that I enjoy talking with him like we’ve been friends for a long time already. I knew that I like him but I’m not sure if I wanted to have a relationship with a guy yet. Being a young Christian, I was content with my relationship with God and the sisters and encouraging the brothers on group dates. Though in the church activities my eyes tend to always look for him.
Our third (group) date came the month after that and I knew that I love him already. When we talk, I felt that we really have a connection. Whenever I see him walking from afar, talking to the other brothers or singing the songs at church, I see hearts everywhere and my own heart beats fastest than them all.
I asked him for a date for September. We have group dates so it’s ok for girls to ask ;P In the singles ministry of our church, you are allowed to date a brother once in a month when you are not in a dating relationship. I can’t let a month pass without having a date with him. I actually felt that I don’t want to date any other brothers than him.
Then one fine night in our devotional, he asked me to be his girlfriend in front of many people. I’ve shared already how he asked me.
