March 30th

Dear Sir,

We met six months ago today.  I hadn’t the faintest idea that I’d meet someone special at Comic Con.  I wasn’t even looking.  And little did I know where that “Hey 11” would lead me.

Little did I know that you wouldn’t wait 2 days to ask me out.  Little did I know how brave and resolute you would be in getting to know me.  And little did I know what a compassionate, witty, narrative-loving friend I had gained in you.

But I know now, and I am infinitely grateful.

Grateful for text messages, for that one email, for "important life questions," for you getting to know my family and friends, for our - and my! - first real date, for movie nights, for the Renn Faire, for Portland date days, for bow-tie origami notes, for Pride and Prejudice read aloud's, and for all of the laughter!

We’ve been officially “together” for just over 2 months now.  We’re only at the beginning, but oh what a beginning it’s been.  So thank you!



  1. Dear Lady,

    What six months of time has been for us, feels rather like six days to me. I could not have known that assuming the persona of a Time Lord would ever have worked.

    But here I am today, six months or six days later I cannot really tell, writing my story no longer alone, but with a girl who has become my Companion.

    For whether my Blue Box flies or drives through time or towns, I knew moments after meeting you that I couldn't wait to ask you out; that you let me walk you to the bus was more exciting than meeting Patrick Rothfuss.

    And I am ever thankful that you did.

    Thankful for those same text messages, for that email, for all the "important life questions". For a family that happily accepted me over bottomless fries and friends that approved me.

    For every happy moment you've remembered, and every yet to be a memory, I am so very thankful, and as I could hardly wait to see you again, I can hardly wait to see you again.

    No matter when.


  2. Both of you, STAWP! You guys are too cute to handle! :D :D :D


  3. So, er, Matthew. Hi! Sorry to butt in but you sound ridiculously lovely and I just have to ask: have you got a brother by any chance? ;)

  4. Oh, Samara you have rubbed off on me! I totally teared up reading that...both yours and Matt's. I'm so happy for you two! It is a wonderful story so far. It gives me hope and reminds me that God writes the best stories.
