Catesby and Jacob
how we met
I was a recent college grad living in the “Fan” neighborhood (a fun area with a great bar scene) in Richmond, VA, in a house with a very active social schedule. However, through all that fun, I never seemed to meet a guy that I had much of a spark with. I had chatted online with Jacob off and on over a couple of months, and on June 21, 2014, decided to meet him for a cup of coffee. I don’t know if it was love at first sight, but I will never forget the joy in his smile, and the excitement in his wave as we approached each other outside of the Lamplighter coffee shop halfway between our apartments. We greeted each other, ordered our drinks, and went for a walk around the city. We ended up walking, exploring, and talking for hours, and by the end we both knew that this was the start of something special.
