Offering advice as an Heating and A/C professional to the guy who later became our partner

To say it was love, at first sight would be a lie. It was more like animosity at first sight. My first impression of him was that he was pompous. It was not in anything he said however how he filled a room when he walked in. His rolled-up sleeves just emphasized his toned arms and broad shoulders. His gait was that of a confident man, comfortable in his own skin. Bob was the perfect representation of masculinity. I hated him, or rather, the way he made me feel. This was the first time I was meeting him to present our company proposal. When I walked into his office, I found it uncomfortably warm. A small fan on his desk was running, so I assumed he felt the heat. When I finished my presentation, I could no longer stand it, and I asked him what was wrong with their Heating and A/C. There was a smart thermostat that proved obvious. Bob told me they had called the heating dealer, and the Heating and A/C professional still needed to arrive. His PA had contacted the heating dealer more than one hour earlier. I was done with my appointments for the day. I asked him if I could look at their whole home gas furnace. He led me to the heat pump upgrade and helped me fetch our tools. He was with me the entire time. I conducted furnace repair and told him it would help with indoor comfort before their heating dealer came to update some of the parts. He was impressed that he asked if I had ever worked in the heating industry, and I told him I owned a heating business. The following questions led me to feel he wanted to learn more about heating, especially the heat pump. He told me he wanted to purchase a new heating unit and would contact me to discuss it. We have been married for seven years now.
