I went looking for apartments in apartments in Alamo Heights last month, and ended up finding some place to live and a girlfriend! I had been on my own for so long that I was not even expecting to find anyone to date anytime soon. It was such a pleasant surprise to find someone who has turned out to be my soulmate. She is the apartment manager at the complex that I decided to rent at. It was love at sight for both of us.
The day that I walked into my girlfriend’s office, I was a bit tired from looking at another of other apartments for many hours. I was feeling a bit down that I would not be happy with what I would find next. But when I walked in, she had a big smile on her face and she welcomed me. I was suddenly nervous. She was so pretty. I could not believe it. She looked like an angel to me. I even found myself stuttering a little bit, which was embarrassing. She seemed to not notice though. She took me on a whirlwind tour of what she had available. Because I did not like the other places I had been to that day, I agreed to rent from her because I liked what she had shown me. Before I left, I drummed up all the courage I could to ask her for a date. I assumed she would say, but she told me she would be happy to go out with me.
