Used Car Dealerships & Love

I fell in love at one of the used car dealerships in my neighborhood. No, no, it wasn’t with my boyfriend, I’d already known him for years and I fell in love with him at the beach. But it was love at first sight.

You probably won’t be surprised when I tell you that it was actually a car that changed my life that day. With so many used cars for sale on, I never thought I’d find the right one for me at the second dealer I visited. But there it was, sitting with all the other used cars, sun reflecting off her bright silver roof.

I wish I could say that I played it cool but that would be a lie. I ran over immediately and took a better look. The price was right and it didn’t have too many miles on it, either. The salesmen who approached me had to know it was going to be an easy sale. He offered to let me go on a test drive. I was even more convinced that to have this car after, like, 30 seconds behind the wheel.

I made absolutely no attempt to hide my excitement and didn’t even bother to try to negotiate. I was honestly shocked at the price. I mean, this guy knew he had me. He could have tried to get more money out of me and he didn’t. I really felt like everything was falling into place perfectly.

When I was finally finished with all the paperwork, it was all mine. The car of my dreams, the one I’d been looking for, and I was driving it home to park in my driveway. I decided to go for a little drive first, just to spend some time with my new Toyota Camry! I needed to show it off so I called my boyfriend and told him i was coming over.

Jake was waiting for me outside when I pulled up. “Hop in!” I said with a smile and together we took a drive to the beach.

You’re not going to believe what happened next. There we were, sitting on a blanket at the beach, when out of nowhere, Jake asked me to marry him. Of course, I said yes! So finding my dream car wasn’t exactly the best thing that happened to me that day. But it was still pretty great.
