Hello! I hope you are all well, for those of you who don’t know, my name is Charlotte and I’m 23.
Today I thought I’d introduce Elliott, I’ve mentioned him a few times previously and it’s always nice to have a face for a name.
This is Elliott, we have been together for just over 5 years now, (Still no engagement ring 🙄) he is 22 yes I am 6 months older than him, he turns 23 in May. We met in college, on my first day. Myself and my family moved from Sunderland to Essex, I was so nervous, my accent was so different I didn’t want to talk to anyone then I looked across the room and caught a glimpse of his smile (it’s so cheesy but omg I just fell in love with his smile from that moment and I didn’t even know him). We both studied IT (Information Technology) at college.
At first, although I thought he was cute, I did think he was a thug 😂 he smoked when we were in college which I didn’t like, but I thought “ugh he’s just a thug, probably has no aspirations in life” I am so sorry that I thought so little of you! But here we are 5 years on, he has served in the Royal Navy, which was hard, but god he looked so handsome in his uniform! He now works in Computer Programming for a small company, I am so proud of how far he has come and what he has achieved for himself since we met in college.
Elliott, thank you for being my rock through everything in the last 5 years, there’s no way I’d be the person I am today without you in my life. I love you more than you will ever know! P.s your smile still melts my heart! ❤️
