Joey saw Millie on Facebook, and messaged her. Millie had a broken ankle and was student teaching. Her schedule was filled with classes and work. Her moments of free time consisted in coming home late, eating dinner and sleeping, waking up and doing it all over again. So she talked to the cute guy for a bit and ignored him for a month. Joey’s messages were left on read without a response.
Joey waited and his patience paid off. Finally during her Winter Break, Millie went out with him. Their first date would be in Downtown Pomona. They hit it off. But at the end of the date, Joey played it safe. It had taken a month to get her to go out with him so he told her, “It’s up to you when you want to go out again.” Millie’s response made him smile. She said, “How about next Friday?”
They would have two more Friday dates and since then, they have not gone more than a day without seeing each other. Millie had found a guy that listened to what she had to say and made her laugh. Joey had found the girl that made him strive to be the best version of himself for her, was just as funny and dorky as he was and that showed him the importance of family.
So on a birthday lunch in San Diego, Joey ask Millie to be his forever. This time it didn’t take a month for her to say, “Yes!”
