A simple compliment

Day #25 of the challenge: Something someone told you about yourself that you'll never forget

Chauncey and I a few months into dating

Let's go back to May 1st, 2008. It was a Thursday which means I had my audio editing class. It was the last class of the semester before summer break, and we were showing our final projects. After class was finished people were packing up and chatting about what their plans were for the summer. I tended to be a loner and hadn't made any real friends in the class, but as I was packing my things this guy approached me. I don't remember what he said exactly, but it was something along the lines of "Hey Rachel. You seem like a really interesting girl and I'd like to get to know you better." Then he asked if I might want to go see the new Indiana Jones movie with him later that summer to which I said "Sure." Then he asked if I was on Facebook and said that he'd find me on there and be in touch.

Now at the time I was not looking to date, I was focused solely on school. So when this guy approached me I was shocked, I didn't even know his name! Yet when he asked me out I didn't hesitate to say yes. Something about his approach seemed genuine. Obviously the relationship blossomed and I now call that same guy my husband. So that short conversation and compliment paid off.


  1. Aw, this story is so amazing and cute. It's one of those heart touching "how did you meet stories."
