I met my girlfriend while we were both stopped on the traffic light in central London. What made us notice eachother is that we both had the same Alfa Romeo cars. I had it in Black and she had it in Red. We looked at the car then the driver and we smiled at each other. At that moment my heart beat 100mph because in young terms I thought “She is hot!”. We both shared few smiles after that and the red light just didn’t turn green.
I was with my friends going down to Covent Garden to enjoy few drinks under the lovely sun. The summer of 2007 was brilliant and I was planning to make the most of that day because I had a long week at work. I had it all planned that I will be drinking then parking my car in the hotel nearby and then catch a bus to the apartment. I can always go back to the hotel next day and get the car but that wasn’t to happen as from the traffic light I asked her to take the first left and park as I wanted to talk to her.
I wasn’t expecting a yes but what I was shocked about was she did turn left and stopped and there was my chance to ask her out and see how it goes. After few seconds of hi, how are you and I was about to ask her out then all of a sudden she asked “What you upto tonight”?? I held my breathe took my time and replied absolutely nothing, yes I did get few punches from my friends later on. That was that I spend the whole evening with her had a fantastic time and after 3 years we are engaged.
I made my decision to propose to her after 3 years because I felt now is the time as we have a lot of things in common also we love and respect each other. We also have competitive nature as we both work in used cars company. If she told me that on the traffic light I would have just turned right. We are in love with cars and are both big fans of Honda cars. We are planning to settle down and hoping to get married in May 2011.
