Reddit user spaghettipolicy11 shares her story about the first time she met her boyfriend. But she never would have thought in that moment that they would end up dating.
“One summer during college I was working as a waitress at Chili’s. I happen to wait on a table of 4 guys around my age. They make funny small talk… about women and love making. They were pretty nice though, your normal early 20’s male.
Fast forward 4 months later. A friend of a friend from the restaurant randomly invites me to a hotel party. I almost decline because my female friend backed out at the last minute but alas I went anyway. As I open the door, I see one of the guys who I served at Chili’s.
Immediately he goes, ‘That’s the Chili’s waitress.’
Turns out, one of the guys there who was at that table lived 2 blocks away from me. We’d grown up in the same town most of our whole lives. He kindly offered to drive me home (I had a couple drinks), and drive me back to get my car the next morning. It was very sweet of him but all I could think of during the ride home was, ‘Please don’t let me throw up in this guy’s Jeep.’
Thankfully I didn’t, and I thanked him on Facebook afterward which led us to date. Over 6 years later we’re still together.
