Amanda:? Garrett and I met through an online dating website. I had just moved to Nashville a couple of months prior and was only hoping to make some friends and get to know the city better. In one of his emails, he shared a story about a trip to his friend’s farm and how a cow licked his hand. I thought, “okay, if animals love him, then he’s got to a be a good guy. I’ll give him a chance.” Our first date took place at Bosco’s. Over a pizza and a couple glasses of wine, we spent hours sharing our dreams, values, and what was important to us. We both were secretly noting how similar we were on so many fronts. My first thought was that he was remarkably kind and truly seemed interested in knowing ME.
