I've given this a lot of thought, and I have come to the conclusion that I have married one of the most famous and well-known romantic novel characters of all time.

When I first met Drew, it was in the doorway of my apartment at BYU-Idaho. My roommates opened the door and there stood two men who introduced themselves. Drew stood tall in the back, quiet, but confident. The moment I saw him, I thought, "I want to go on a date with that guy," although I was concerned that he would be way too cool for me. He didn't speak much that night and left without hardly a word.
It was a couple of weeks later when we spoke, but this time I wasn't interested in him, but rather another man attending the social gathering. By then, I was over him, although I did entertain his tales of four-wheeling and soccer for a while until I came up with an excuse to escape.
It wasn't until a month or so later that we had our first date then started steadily dating, but it didn't last long. Five months following, Mr. Drew proclaimed his affections for me and I denied him because I was going to BYU Provo. Despite my rebuff, he met me at my apartment in Provo and we continued meeting from there. At one time, I was caught in a situation where I did not know where I was and needed rescue. I called Drew who made arrangements and rescued me. Soon after that, we proclaimed our affections and were married.

Remind you of any characters you know and love?

  • Quiet
  • Confident (at times, maybe a little too confident)
  • Tall
  • Handsome
  • Persistent
  • Patient
  • A great friend
  • Doesn't wear his feelings on his sleeve
  • Not exactly what you'd call... sensitive, though he does have his moments
  • Love language: Service
  • Comes off as "too cool" when you first meet him
  • Mysterious

Sound like any romantic novel characters that you know? Pity Jane Austen didn't write a sequel.

-Mrs. Drew
