Fridays are woderful blog days. There are so many great things to participate in. This week on Show Us Your Life is "How you met your fiancé"
A couple months after we started dating
Christopher and I have a very interesting story and I will go beyond how we met. I'll share how we got together too.
Christopher and I both grew up in the wonderful small town of West Plains. We went to different elementary schools and junior high schools, but ended up at the same high school WPHS (home of the Zizzers). Even though we were from a small town and went to the same school, we didn't begin to get to know each other until my junior year.
My junior year of high school (his senior year), I began dating this guy named Jordan. This wasn't exactly the best relationship, but hey, I was young and dumb and niave of what the world had to offer me. Christopher was one of Jordan's best friends. We all began hanging out a lot and really got to know each other. Chris spend a lot of time hanging out at my house with groups of people and we also went dirtroading, cruising town and fishing.
Because Chris was always around, I was always trying to set him with someone. I tried relatives, friends and anyone that I knew. Nothing seemed to work.
During this time that I was dating Jordan, Chris and I became great friends. I was always very comfortable with him and we could talk about anything. He was always super nice and sweet to me. He even brought me flowers on one occassion. Chris and I apparently both developed crushes on each other, but neither of us said a word until a few months after Jordan and I broke up. (I promise I did not cheat on Jordan, I'm not that kind of gal)
I was miserable in my relationship and finally broke things off with Jordan in August of 2003. Everyone as happy with that decision that I made :) Chris and I didn't hang out very much right after Jordan and I broke up. It was just a little weird and he didn't know if he was allowed to still be friends with me. I called him once to ask him to hang out, but chickened out on asking. I figured that if he was interested, he would have called me. We talked for about 10 minutes then got off the phone. Jordan was no good for anyone and Chris stopped hanging out with him so much.
On October 18, 2003 is when history begins. This was the night of WPHS homecoming dance. I didn't go and neither did my sister. We were hanging out in town. Chris was in town with Anthony (a friend). During one of our laps, my sister thought that Anthony had flipped her off (funny, I know), so we follow the boys over to Auto Zone parking lot. Come to find out Anthony just waved at her. The boys asked if we wanted to hang out and of course we agreed. I climbed in the back of my sister's car. While the boys were walking over to the car, I just remember wishing that Chris would get in the back with me and he did. :)
We cruised town for quite a while and went dirt roading too. At the end of the nght, Chris asked me if us hanging out was just for that night or if he could call me the next day. Of couse, I told him, he could call me the next day. He did and the rest is history.
We have been together now for 6 1/2 years. We have never taken a break from each other. We both knew right away that we were meant to be together. We've been through a lot over the past six years (the last 5 being long distance) but I wouldn't change any of it. The struggles, fights and memories are what makes our relationship strong and our love, support and devotation to one another is what will keep us together.
That's our story so far. Many more years are ahead of us!!!
