Yall have probably read about him and seen lots of pictures, but I haven't gone into too much detail about our relationship. So what better time than now to tell you how we met....
So every year, the second UT football season tickets go on sale, I gather up a group and we get tickets together. I've been in big groups, I've been in small groups, and this year, we decided to keep it stress free and make it an all girls group.
Come early September, the first game rolled around and we tailgated hard. I mean come on, it was my last first game ever. Go big or go home, ya know?
Just hours before meeting my love for the first time ever. Craayyy.
Anywho, us being girls and having our natural tendencies on top of the drunkenness, we showed up about 20 minutes late. There were boys in our seats. Um hello, that's what getting season tickets are for. To have a permanent seat. So I get pissed. When I politely tell the boys they're in our seats.. their reply was "Umm yall are girls. Yall don't know anything about football anyways, so it doesn't really matter if we're in your seats." Uhh no. I went off. I want to be very clear I am NOT a confrontational person, but how dare this guy be an ass to me? Also, I had a little liquid courage to help a sista out, so I'm sure that helped. He moved :)
A few minutes later, one of the boys (Graham) in the group apologized for his friend's behavior. How sweet. Turns out their group was seated right next to us for the rest of the season. Awesome. Couldn't wait to sit next to the asshole for the next 3 months. But, Graham and I spent the rest of the game chatting and flirting in a "make fun of each other" way--6th grade style. So cute.
I literally couldn't wait until the second game to see him.
But of course he was too hungover to come to the next game, and I found myself getting sad over it! Ha! But he was there the next week. I totally thought he was into this other girl, so I played it cool and didn't talk to him for most of the game. Cause ya know, I totally didn't care. But around halftime, he came around and pestered me for the rest of the game. In the 4th quarter, I casually mentioned my friends and I were going downtown after the game, and he and his friends should come. He FINALLLLY asked for my number and said he'd text me when he got down there. 11pm rolled around and still no word. I figured he was just trying to appease me by getting my number. But whaddaya know.. at almost 2, I get a text saying "Megan?"
We finally had a means of communication!! *I'm starting to sound like an obsessed psycho. Promise I'm not. I played it cool in real life, no worries.*
Anyways, we texted for like a month (without hanging out. It drove me crazy) and finally planned to meet up downtown on Halloween. We kept trying to meet up, but holidays on 6th Street are a little nuts, so we kept missing each other. I was at one bar, complaining loudly to my friend about how hard Graham was to find. Some boys nearby overheard and said they too were annoyed with a Graham. Turns out it was the same Graham! Ha! What a small world. So we stayed there and hung out with his best friends all night while he was off doing his own thing. So so weird. We FINALLY met up when the bars closed and his friends gave us a ride home. My best friend was totally macking on his best friend, and Graham wouldn't even hold my hand. He did, however, insist on feeding me Doritos, which I guess was a nice gesture?
The next day, he felt bad about not being able to meet up with me, so we set a date to hang out on Halloween night. It turned out being a really fun night and he invited me to his hockey game a few nights later. Naturally, I drug my best friend with me and so did he. The two of them hit it off and are now currently dating (hey Kaitlynn and Garrett!). We wound up hanging out all night long and finalllllllly finally finally had our first kiss. And it's been smooth sailing ever since.
Except when I wanted to have the relationship talk and he pretty much just told me I was his girlfriend. No talk. Just telling me that. And here we are now :)
