Okay. I have officially found the cutest couple ever. Get this. They discreetly flirted on their bus rides home for a year and a half before ever striking up the nerve to say hello. Talked to their friends about each other. Smiled shyly and tried to ignore each other. But love struck, and we’re so happy it did, because they are seriously the cutest couple ever. Chris & Adrienne Scott, Photographers decided to photograph the two love birds around the city in which they fell in love – over sideways glances on the bus. Promise me you’ll visit the gallery for the whole cute shoot!
From the groom … A few years ago I was waiting to catch the 1 California home from work when I saw a girl with glasses that immediately stood out in my mind. Looking back I have memories of thinking something like, “That’s a girl I could see standing next to me for the rest of my life.” Soon after that I noticed she also rode the same Golden Gate Transit bus I rode to San Rafael for work. Quite a few times we’d stand next to each other waiting for the 1, me trying to look like I wasn’t paying attention to her. This tandem bus ride schedule went on for a couple weeks, but eventually I stopped seeing her on the bus.
A number of months and a relationship came and went. I from time to time I’d wonder what happened to the bus girl. One day she appeared on my Golden Gate Transit bus. We began to smile at each other every now and then, but still we generally acted like we didn’t know the other was there. This game went on for a while, but eventually I decided it was time that I actually said hello to the bus girl. One day I sat down next to her on the bus. In my best I’m-not-trying-to-hit-on-you voice said, “Hi, I’m Cameron. I feel like we should know each other.”
I later learned that for that year and a half of talking about the “bus girl” with my friends, her friends had been calling me “bus boyfriend.” People like to give us a hard time for taking so long to say hello to one another, but we both agree we’re glad it took that long. We both changed a lot in that year and a half, every bit of it getting our personalities in just the right place for when we finally did meet.
