Don’t let the title of this post fool you, as two people go, we have to be the most unromantic (is that even a word) couple ever, I mean ever, ever!!
We met in June 2005 when I was 18 years old, an old friend of mine was training with Robert and told me I needed to meet this guy on his course. The first night we met, we both were attending birthday drinks for an old friend, my first impression of Robert wasn’t the best. I felt he was ever so cocky and really loud (I was only half right ;)) He had the worst shirt on and to top it all off, he kissed another girl that night!!!
Over the course of the next few weeks we seen each other out at the pub with friends. Eventually Robert won me over at another mutual friends 21st birthday party, he begged me for a kiss (haha sorry Robert) and I gave in. We spent the rest of that night talking and kissing 😉 The next day after he text me I took the bull by the horns and asked him on a double date to the cinema the following weekend (Mr & Mrs Smith). We have been pretty much glued together since then. In fact the longest we have spent apart was 2 weeks, we see each other every day and have been living together for 6 years.
In February 2015 whilst in Orlando Robert proposed to me in our hotel room. It wasn’t supposed to happen that way, in fact we had been in Magic Kingdom earlier and posed for photos on front of the castle, Robert had planned to pop the question here but the nerves got the better of him (his words, not mine). When we returned to our hotel room he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him, of course the only answer was yes. I talk about this on my YouTube channel if you are interested in more detail.
Robert is an amazing man, loving, strong, generous, caring, forgiving I could go on and on but you get the idea. It was always my dream to travel the world and Robert made that happen even though he wasn’t too interested and would much rather have stayed in Ireland. Every year since we met, we would visit another country or city, in 2013 we travelled through Asia for 4 months.Throughout all our years Robert has been my biggest supporter and encouraged me to reach my goals and for that I will love him forever. He will make the best husband and is currently an amazing father to our baby daughter Ava.
I love you Robert ♥♥.
