Rob and I We Just Click: Helzberg Diamonds Giveaway

They say, you never know when it will happen. You know, when you will meet that person that you know is “it”. That is what “they” kept saying but I had a really hard time believing it. I was in bad relationship after bad relationship. In fact, my theme song was “Another One Bites The Dust” by Queen.

I had just gotten out of a 5-year relationship that should have ended 5 years ago when I met Rob over the phone. I was an office manager at a medical staffing agency and, at the time, Rob was a Respiratory Therapist. I worked over the phone when scheduling our medical staff, so my first contact with Rob was over the phone. We actually spoke over the phone for about 3 months before we met in person.

Our first meeting was rather interesting, he showed up at the office sporting “pork chop” sideburns. A date was scheduled and sideburns were gone by the time went on our date. Rob was, and is, so opposite than anyone I had ever dated. He is polite, caring, and a total gentleman. We “clicked” instantly!

About a month or two after that first date I got cold feet. Things were moving really fast, we were seeing each other a lot and I had just gotten my independence from the previous relationship. He had even already taken me into a jewelry store to look at rings. I spoke to Rob about how I was feeling. He was upset, but we decided to slow things down a bit. We never did slow things down and I was absolutely fine after that! I’m not sure what happened, but maybe just getting it off my chest was what I needed to move forward.

Just last month, we celebrated our 11-year wedding anniversary. It has not been without it’s challenges but we are closer now and more in love than ever.

Both Rob and I like to act silly, and we both have a rather sarcastic sense of humor, which drives the kids nuts! As you can see, Rob likes to change his facial hair a lot…thankfully the pork chop side burns have never made a reappearance.
