Mason Frank + Amanda Humphrey
How did you meet?
I was coming home from a weekend trip to visit my family back home when a bad storm delayed my flight back to San Antonio, TX until the next day. I was in a panic because my original plan was to get a ride from the airport from one of my classmates, but with my new flight time I knew they would be in class when I landed. I reached out to another one of my friends who was in the class below me to see if she could give me a ride. She said she had an appointment during that time, but that she would ask around and someone would be there to pick me up at the airport when I landed. I land back in San Antonio, TX late that morning with my hair all a mess, in yoga pants, and a baggy sweatshirt-clearly frazzled after the plane delays. I grab my bags from baggage claim and head to the loading zone where I see the truck that matched the description my friend had told me would be picking me up. As I approach the driver, a handsome guy hops out, offers to take my bags, and opens the door for me. During the drive back to drop me off him and I converse about school, how his move down to Texas went and our failing long distance relationships. When we got back to my house he carried my bag upstairs to my apartment door, I thanked him for picking me up and said farewell.
I did not see much of him over those next 2-3 months, until I started a Program wide intramural soccer team and he signed up to play. We went on for weeks just seeing each other at practices and getting to know one another until it developed into a strong friendship. He was my go to person for advice and was always around to kick the ball around. Little did I know that around the same time my ex and I had broken up, him and his girlfriend had also split. I was oblivious that he was attracted to me despite how often we started to hangout, study together, and text. Eventually he started to be very obvious with his flirting and we started a compliment war to see who could be the most charming. Again, he won this battle considering the best compliment I could come up with was “your part is fun.” (I still have’t lived down that text) He told me later that after I sent that message he thought I was trying to send hints that I wasn’t into him, turns out I’m just not great at flirting. A few weeks later he asked me on an official date to go see the local semi-pro soccer team play and asked me during the game if I wanted to officially date. I said yes of course, I thought you would never ask!
