So it’s late December of 2010. I was currently on the “off” part of a 2 year on and off relationship. By that point I could see how bad the whole thing was and I was trying to keep my mind off of it and move forward.
One day I log on to my facebook and look at who’s online to chat with. There’s my usual friends and I see this guy, Blake, I’ve heard of but never met or talked to. He’s 3 years older than me and already out of high school. I’m a sophomore. He’s cute and I’m bored so I message him. We get to introducing ourselves, chatting about random things, and end up exchanging phone numbers. From that day on we just text and text. I never would’ve thought messaging some random guy would turn into something more.
We meet for the first time at a party on New Year’s Eve. I’m so nervous about it and can’t remember why I would be so forward with a guy when I’m not like that at all! We talk and drink a little.
The next few days after that we are still texting each other and we make a plan to hang out. Our first date was to the movies. Before we got there we stopped by Toys R Us just to look around and I spot the Guitar Hero game and I tell him I want it. What does he do? He buys it for me! Our first date, barely getting to know each other and he buys me something like that. Lol it was sweet to me. I wasn’t used to receiving gifts as my ex never really gave me any, I was the one giving the gifts. In there, right in Toys R Us he asked me to be his girlfriend and I’d never been more excited and happy.
That was January 8th, 2011. We’ve been together for over 5 and a half years now! We’ve had so many struggles, a lot normal young couples would never have to deal with but we’ve made it this far. He was everything I didn’t know I wanted or needed. He treated me good, he made me smile, he spoiled me, he showed me what it was like to be truly loved.
I had just gotten out of bad & emotionally abusive relationship and wasn’t expecting to hop into another. I’m so glad that I did any way. As cheesey as it sounds, if it weren’t for the bad in my past relationship I would never appreciate all the good Blake brought into my life and into our relationship.
To my sweet & loving Blake, thank you for everything. From the beginning you’ve shown me what it’s like to be cherished and loved.
This is how we became us. I want to share my life with him here on my website and maybe even give some advice on what I’ve learned being in this relationship. I’d love to hear everyone’s “How We Met” stories so comment below! Love stories are the best and I hope you enjoyed this little bit of mine!
