Taking a step back in time, the following are partial entries from my diary from 2003. Yes, I still have it…
June 13, 2003
“… Jess is gonna try to hook me up w/ Kris’s friend Ian. He’s really cute and sounds funny.”
August 6th, 2003
“On Sunday, Jessika took me to the movies with her boyfriend Kris and his friend Ian came. Dear Lord is Ian cute! OMG!… me and Ian talked online for a couple hours a few weeks ago, and we have soooooo much in common…”

“Ian asked me to be his girlfriend.” (this was written across the top of the page, an official entry) (see below)
August 20, 2003
“Oh my god. Remember Ian? He likes me. He asked me out. I said yes.”
And, guys, I was such a hardcore diary writer… I even has this little gem:
Yes, I wrote down the exact TIME that Ian asked me out (which was via AOL Instant Messanger, by the way. This was pre-Facebook days!)
I can’t believe that we’ve gone from this diary to where we are now.
Today we celebrate our “together” anniversary – 11 years strong!
I love you!
