Happy “4 Years” To Us!

Yesterday, me and Matt celebrated 4 years together as a couple – easily the best 4 years of my life. In honour our relationship, we celebrated exactly how two huge, happy nerds could have – with tons of food, home made pizza, a marathon of Doctor Who and it was brilliant.
Doctor Who

We met in our first year of college. He decided that I am most definitely a princess, and I haven’t doubted him since! Believe it or not, he considered himself a bit of a bad boy and I still thought I was pretty cool at the time. When we both became more comfortable around each other in the coming months, we finally realised how deeply geeky we were and the bad boy/girl charade was soon lost!

I can’t remember a day since where we haven’t seen each other. We spent our days at college Monday to Friday and each weekend we’d spend our time out and about around Hull, sleeping at each others parent’s homes. Absence makes the heart grow fonder? I doubt it. I can’t imagine being able to love anyone as much as I love him. We always were and always have been completely there for each other. My absolute best friend.

In our final year of college, we were planning which universities we wanted to apply to and what our student accommodation would be like, but neither of us could imagine having to live in separating student housing. Instead, during the final Summer before university we both found full-time jobs and saved up a deposit for our first home (rented, but at 18 we didn’t expect much else)! It was most definitely the absolute best decision of our lives – we’re now sometimes at home, doing something completely ordinary and then it comes to us “when we lived with our parents, we really couldn’t do this…” or we’d remember how limiting it was as a couple to live in separate houses. It’s brought us so much closer.

We’ve lived together over 2 years now, have been engaged for almost a full year (with the wedding on the horizon) and have been in a relationship for 4 years! That’s huge news for us! Here’s to an infinity more, Matt! *clinks beer cans*
