I have to start this section off with a little bit about myself in order for it to make sense. See I’m lactose intolerant. Like Leonard form my favorite television show, feed me ice cream and I can rocket to the moon. So anyway, after our initial dinner party meeting, Dominic waited a few days to call me. (He told me later he didn’t want to look desperate by calling too soon.) He suggested we go out for desert. At the time Dominic wasn’t driving, so I met him at his apartment. I was expecting that he’d made something for dessert, being a pastry chef and all, and then we’d talk.
He’d been working crazy hours and hadn’t had time, which I could understand, so he suggested Cops Frozen Custard. I had pills in the car that I can take when I eat dairy, so I agreed. We drove over, ordered, and got our treat. Since I lived near the custard stand we went back to my house. Dominic and I sat in my living room, ate, and talked for hours. It was an amazing evening and I’d rarely hit it off so well with someone. Until I realized that the pills weren’t working. (It had been so cold I think they must have lost their effectiveness.)
I made it through the evening just fine, took Dominic home and said good night. Which was the goal of the evening. Whew. The unfortunate part was that I barely made it home and spent the rest of the night with a system that made me pay for our date. I won’t go into details but I will say that it was So Worth It.
Next up – Our first dinner party.

Thank you got sharing your story. I’m loving it. Lol
Ouch, but you must have sat there with a huge grin on your face the whole night.
Aww…that was a great date, except for the lactose part. Did Dominic even have a clue that you were feeling bad?
I’m lactose intolerant also, and I feel your pain. I’m so glad you were able to make it through the date before your symptoms erupted. (My intolerance didn’t start until I was well past the dating stage.) I love reading stories like this, and I’m looking forward to more. 🙂
Thank you for sharing such a personal story with us. 🙂 I can’t wait for the next installment.
I’m loving this, and can’t wait for the next installment. Thank you for sharing your love story.
That’s too funny, Andrew! I love ‘how we met ‘ stories and the best ones contain an element of sheer embarrassment! If you thought it was worth it, then it was meant to be! 🙂

I’m really enjoying yours and Dominic’s story can’t wait for the next instalment.
Thank you all. I’m glad you enjoyed it
Such a wonderful story!
Thank you Andrew for sharing your life with us! I look forward to reading more!
Awww you know you’re smitten when you will suffer just a little bit to get to know a person. How sweet <3. Haha I love how he didn't call for a few days. I think we've all done that sometime(except my husband we met, I gave him my number and he came and saw me that night) I'm really enjoying both of your story 😉
LOL! What a wonderful first date story. I also feel your pain as I’ve been lactose intolerant all my life. Thank you for sharing an early picture of ya’ll. You look perfect together. 🙂
LOL Love it and that picture is so cute! My first date with my ex-husband landed me in the bathroom before the date was through. I LOVE Cajun food so I had gotten the Cajun steak and shrimp. It tore me up. So I feel your pain. What a wonderful story. I’m happy you’re going down memory lane with us.
That’s a lovely story. Keep them coming Andrew.
Thank you for sharing your 1st date. I loved the picture of you both that accompanied the story. How young and what a difference 20 years plus can make. I look forward to the next installment. Hugs for your day and Happy Writing. sheila
Also being lactose intolerant, I can empathize with the end of your evening. So glad it waited until after you took Dominic home!
Being lactose intolerant myself, I can appreciate what you went through. But sometimes love is worth the pain. So glad it worked out for you two. Can’t wait for the next installment.
I have the same issue. I feel for you. I’m glad it was worth it. It’s such I cute first date. I wish my first dates were that cute .
Thanks for sharing. Can you tell us what year you met?
I have a feeling this will be one of my all time favorite stories. Thank you for sharing.

Awww….look at that picture! How cute!! The path to love never does run smooth! Oh holy shnikies…did I actually let myself type that? LOL Thank you for sharing! Love your humor too!
Oh the joys of lactose intolerance! That may have impacted a few of my dates with my husband!
I love the honesty! Some things are so worth the suffering….
