“How did you and your baby daddy meet?”
Recently, a member of one of the March 2020 Due Date Facebook groups I belonged to asked us, “How did you and your baby daddy meet?” I responded to the thread, but I also thought it would be fun to share with my readers, as well!
In 2017, I was twenty-five and finishing off my first year of being a med school dropout. I had jumped right back into retail and was working and playing in the magical city of Philadelphia – 2500 miles away from “home”. After visiting Arizona in April of that year, I had decided it was time to make my way back west.
My Best Friend Decided to Play Match Maker
Of course, I was excited to tell my friends I was moving back home after four years of living on the East Coast. My closest friend, Mel had even mentioned a friend she had that would be fun to jam with. I personally do not remember asking if she had any single friends, but if you ask them, that’s how they remember the text messages!
I do remember her telling me their conversation, though because it rubbed my ego the right way. . .
So, she gave him my phone number!
It took two weeks to meet, and then I never left.
About two weeks after moving to Arizona, I finally drove to G’s house. I specifically remember changing from my work clothes into cute clothes while driving! The most distinctive thing I noticed was his smile – it was cute and infectious! I had a crush!
And then I was there the next night. Then, the next night.
I honestly couldn’t stay away; I was spending more nights driving to his house than staying at my own! After a month and a half of spending nights together, G actually asked me to move in. I thought he was bluffing, so I thought I was calling it when I said I would.
I am so glad there wasn’t a bluff to call, because here we are with a two-year Anniversary baby on the way!
