HIM AND ME.
I thought it was a good idea to tell you about the person whom I share both my apartment, bed and life with. He is after all a very important person to me!
Matt is 20, turning 21 this year, and is from Cambridge, UK. In the everyday he is working as a photographer at a real estate company, shooting virtual reality pictures for companies around Denmark and Europe. On the side, he is a freelance photographer shooting live music and sports.
HOW DID WE MEET?
Matt and I met on tumblr, back in 2012. We were talking to each other for quite some time and weren’t really thinking of meeting each other yet, since we were just friends. In the meantime, I along with my friend had decided to go to this concert in Copenhagen (at this point we weren’t living there (not even close). So we were gonna sleep at her brother’s place, and making it a little trip. We booked tickets and I of course booked the wrong concert tickets so instead of booking to Copenhagen, I had now booked it to Cambridge.
At the age of 17 I of course didn’t have much money and was sad about going to lose the money for the tickets, so I told my sister and she came with the excellent idea of asking Matt whether he wanted to buy it from me. He was of course already going to the concert in Cambridge. This concert happened to be in a school holiday and my mum, sister and i was supposed to go to Berlin for a week. But devastated me went to my mum, and told her everything. My mum being her, hadn’t booked the plane tickets yet and went: “Well shouldn’t we just go to London for the holiday and then have a pitstop in Cambridge, so you and Matt can go to the concert?”. So we went.
The day we met, Matt came to the hotel and said hello to my mum and sister, and then went around Cambridge the whole day. We had both lunch and dinner and then went to the concert where I met his friends as well. After the concerts I was supposed to go back home to the hotel, but his mum and sister came to pick him up and invited me home to their place. I ended up sleeping on the sofa and was taken back home to the hotel by Matt and his mother the morning after. Obviously when saying goodbye we kissed and everything became one big muddle.
AFTER HOW LONG DID YOU MAKE IT OFFICIAL AND FOR HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN TOGETHER?
We met each other in february and after a lot of decision making we became official in april, and had a longdistance relationship for 1 year and a bit. In april this year, we celebrated being together for 3 years.
WHERE HAVE YOU LIVED AND FOR HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN LIVING TOGETHER?
After I graduated from Sixth Form College (danish: gymnasiet) in 2014, Matt came to live at my parents house for 3 months before we then moved to England and after that moved to London in our first apartment. There we lived for almost a year and in 2015 we moved to Copenhagen together. So we have lived together for 2 years already.
