Nate and I first met while hiking with the same hiking group. I was immediately attracted to his laid back demeanor and sexy smile. We got to know each other a little better on a group camping trip where we carpooled together and Nate helped me take care of my friend’s dog Theo. Shortly after that trip Nate asked me to go with him to a local outdoor festival. Our first date started with the festival and extended to swimming in Lake Washington and finished with watching a rugby match in the park. We started spending a lot of time together just after that first date. It didn’t take us long to realize that we had something special together. I feel lucky every day to have Nate in my life.
