I met #ExMrToxi through some friends back with we both lived in San Diego. Our first date was to the movies. We went to see Very Bad Things. I remember thinking he was cute and tall....like really tall (6'5). I was nervous throughout the evening.
During the movie, my nerves didn't waiver. In fact, I think it got worse. A combination of nervousness and greasy movie popcorn started to turn into more. The next thing I know I had to excuse myself and go to the restroom. I'm not a public facility pooper, but OMG did I have to go! And boy...did I ever go. And go. And go. I was in the restroom so long that I basically missed the entire middle section of the movie (I'm sorry, Christian Slater!)
Life Lesson #15 - Be with someone who makes you feel beautiful at any weight.
My 15 years of marriage included a lot of ups and downs, both with my weight and in our relationship. Although it didn't work out, I will always appreciate that #ExMrToxi made sure I knew I was sexy even when I didn't feel it myself.
