Many of you might not know, but we were friends for 3 years before we started dating.
Our friendship grew stronger each day and Adrian was always there when I needed him. Even before we started dating Adrian was always proving to me that he would be by my side through thick and thin.
I remember one day getting tickets for "Forever Tango" at the Jackie Gleason. I immediately thought of him so I called him to see if he wanted to go. He said yes and 30 minutes later he was at my house picking me up to go see the show.
After this day we started hanging out more often and going to the movies "as friends"...
One night after going to see "The Truman Show", Adrian drove me home and I kiss him goodnight, this was our first KISS, but right after that I told him "Please don't read into that" and I left. Once I got into the house I realized that this friendship was getting more serious than I expected. Of course, now I am thinking that Adrian probably doesn't want to see me again because of my comment. This bothered me all night cuz I thought I had just ruined a great friendship.
The next day I call him and he just laughed it off and called me a "TEASE"... That was when I knew that I wanted this friendship to continue growing into something bigger.
On June 13, 1998 he accompanied me to my Father's wedding shower. After the shower which was at the beach, we took my grandmother back home and then Adrian and I went for a drive. This drive led us back to Miami Beach, so we decided to go walk on the sand. After walking for a while we sat down and just relaxed while staring at the stars above us.
While siting on the sand, Adrian hugged me and whispered in my ear "Do you want to be my girlfriend?"
Now I will fast forward 6 years and tell you that my loving husband proposed to me on this day also. So basically June 13th is a VERY SPECIAL day for us eventhough many consider the number 13 to be UNLUCKY.
