Joshua and I met in the basement of our law school building. The basement was a popular study area and many of us law students spend sleepless hours there relying religiously on caffeine and take-out food. Joshua and I would share stolen glances for months. Finally, I received the sweetest email from him inviting me out. I initially had cold feet due to a series of failed relationships and ending up broken hearted. At the last minute, I cancelled the date. However, he held no grudges and we began a comfortable friendship, texting and chatting from time to time.
One late night I fell ill. Being new to the area (I had moved there for law school), I had no one to turn to. Against my better judgment I sent a desperate message to Josh seeking a shoulder to lean on. He immediately asked for my address, showed up at my apartment door and drove me around town (at midnight!) to find an open pharmacy. After a few failed attempts he found one still open in the wee hours of the night and ran in to find something to make me feel better. He dropped me off afterwards and was the perfect gentleman, checking on me over the next few days to ensure I was ok.
I was instantly enamored with this man who sacrificed his night of studying to drive me around town. He never asked to come in and after the incident would simply wave at me around school. He was never aggressive or pushy and maintained a respectful distance from me. I thought of him often and finally decided that if I truly found my fairy-tale knight in shining armour, I wanted to get him first and keep him forever! Chivalry is not dead ladies! Since then we have been inseperable and I am madly in love!
