How We Met, Bess’s Story
How We Met, Vi’s Story
Bess and I first connected in a group email organizing the details for a Sasha & Digweed concert in San Francisco. The night before the concert, Bess pinged me on gchat to get to know me a little bit better. At one point, she admitted that it was nice to have another girl to go to the concert with. My response was like, “uh, I’m a guy!” (or something like that…this happens all the time). And then we debated about how Vi is or isn’t a boy’s name. We chatted for a while (I can’t find that chat history!) and left it at that.
The next night, me, Hotdog, and Trinh drove to SF to meet Bess and her roommate. We arrived at her apartment in the Castro and they buzzed us in. As we were walking up a small staircase to their living room area, I could hear Bess cracking a joke about my name (I wish I could remember her exact words).
The concert was at the Warfield where we hung out and danced. While we were dancing, I asked her to give me her phone number so I could text her and I texted her something silly on the spot (I wasn’t trying to pick her up or anything…I was just being silly).
The next day she texted me that she’s going to be in the South Bay. I was thinking “this girl is so into me!” lol We hung out that night and I took her to Tacos Autlense (my favorite taco spot at the time). It took me a week to ask her out on an official date and the rest is history!
