How we met?
We met online at eHarmony around Christmas time in 2014. After being impressed from my wild profile page, Gerrick messaged and we started lengthy email conversations while he was visiting his parents for Christmas. I had to know more.
Our first date was on the day before New Year’s Eve. Gerrick picked me up from the office and we chatted at Philz coffee. After quickly clicking we continued our conversations in a nice Italian restaurant that went extremely well. On the way back, in a soft voice, Gerrick mentioned he purchased San Francisco New Year’s Eve dinner cruise tickets and politely asked whether I would like to go together. I was pleasantly surprised. “What a romantic and adventurous move” I thought. Then I remembered my promise for my friend that I would spend the New Year’s Eve with her. Cautiously, I asked “Do you mind if a friend of mine go together, I promised to spend time with her and don’t want to leave her alone”. I was pleasantly surprised again that Gerrick nodded immediately “Sure of course, I will just need to get another ticket for her” without hesitation or awkwardness.
The next day, the three of us went to San Francisco and spent a fantastic night on the boat in the bay. Gerrick and I kissed for the first time while watching the fireworks. I always enjoy telling our New Year’s Eve story to my friends and listen to their surprise of, “you did what? Gerrick is so nice”… Day after day, I cannot agree more.
