So, I know a bunch of you have been waiting for this post, and I’m so sorry that it has taken me this long to write, but I’m finally ready to share the story of how Rudy and I met and became a couple! I can’t say I wasn’t at least a little surprised at how quickly everything changed for me, like I’m sure you guys were. But life works in unexpected ways!
As some of you may know, Rudy is Diego’s best friend, who is Sara’s boyfriend. So in the big picture, I met him through them. I would always join Sara when they went out in Venice, hung out at Diego’s house, went to concerts, or at friends’ parties. The first place I met him was at a friend’s birthday party, but Rudy says we had met earlier than that (who knows!). There’s actually a picture of both of us at the same party about a month before we actually met, (you can see me in the back talking to someone else), but apparently we didn’t cross paths that night haha. See the photo below 😉
In the beginning I thought he was super charming and sweet. I didn’t really know him at all besides the good things Sara would say about him. Around the 2nd or 3rd time we hung out was when he came to Sara and I’s joint birthday party. He came in with two champagne bottles, one for Sara and one for me, with curled pink ribbon tied at the top.. it was adorable!
When I met him, I wasn’t really looking for anything serious. I was in the mind state that I was just going to do whatever made me happy. I wasn’t in the mood to set any ”I should do’s” or ”shouldn’t do’s” for myself. I was more about doing whatever made me happy in that moment.
That’s why I was very interested in seeing if there was anything between Rudy and I, because I had an inkling that there was. Not long after I became newly single, I started hanging out with Rudy. We hung out for about a month before we officially became ”girlfriend/boyfriend” in Mammoth on New Year’s Eve. I kind of forgot how it got brought up that night, but I’m pretty sure it was because of me haha. I let him know I’m only seeing him, and that I really like him. Next thing I know we’re sharing our first New Years kiss at midnight, as a 1 hour old couple haha.
I’m so happy to be with a guy like him. He’s happy, sweet, loves his family, gets along great with my family, and loves to travel and do adventurous things. In the 5 or so months we’ve been together, we’ve already made so many fun memories together 🙂
