I don’t normally share what my couples write about when I ask them about their relationship but I feel like I need to give an exception for this because Patsy & Paul’s relationship is just too dang cute and I love it. So please read on to learn about their relationship and how we all came together for their downtown Denver couples session:
How did you two meet and fall in love?
“High school! It’s funny, it was kind of a love-at-first-sight thing. Even until today, it’s never happened to me again. For him, it was his freshman year of high school and he saw me walking down a ramp and thought I was “the prettiest girl he had seen.” For me, I saw him and instantly made the decision to find out who he was because I thought he was so cute. We were both kinda shy, but made efforts to show we were into each other and then started dating. We broke up because I mentioned I had to move and knew we couldn’t do long distance. We still remained friends, but did our thing for about 10 years. I knew on my end that I thought about him here and there, but I never could figure out why. About 3 years ago, I found his IG and requested to be his friend. I was in a relationship at the time, so it was strictly friendly. He had just recently separated from a long time ex. Shortly after, my own relationship that I was in broke (his decision) and while it was a weird time for the both of us, it kind of drew us even closer because we were going through similar feelings due to the separations from people we believed we thought we may have been with for good. Our feelings from teen-hood were still there as well, so it was a particular relationship we were developing. Given that we had just both gotten out of relationships, we made sure to give ourselves a bit of time before anything to make sure it wasn’t anything rebound-y. With time we found out the feelings were only growing and we were just a perfect fit together. It’s been nice having this to ourselves for a while and working out any initial relationship issues/meeting family/etc on our own, and now I feel like we get to really enjoy the joys of dating. He’s the best person I’ve ever known and I am grateful for the story we have.”
If your relationship were a song, what would it be?
“HARD…. there’s so many, we both love so many songs. We joke around because the first outside-of-school date we had was watching Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist (because you know how that culture was back then–being scene/emo/indie and all! what a time haha), so we say it was a perfect first date not only because we both love sharing music together, but also relate in the sense that we also share the first letter of our names. Paul and Patsy’s Infinite Playlist??? Anyways, if I had to choose a song, it may be Everlong by the Foo Fighters, because he learned and played it for me back in 2008 when I told him it was one of my favorites. But there’s so many others and they all usually have a love-filled meanings haha.”
What’s the occasion for your photo session?
“it’s kind of our anniversary! Paul and I dated back in 2008 (first boyfriend back when I was a sophomore in high school) but had to break it because I moved to California. We remained friends, but couple years ago during Autumn, we reconnected and gradually became what we are now. So since we don’t exactly have an anniversary date, we kind of associate the season of Fall as our anniversary!”
Dreamy, right?? Right. <3
