i originally posted this when i had just started blogging and literally had 5 followers. i thought i'd share it again since i have many more lovely readers now!
fall of 2004, i start attending college. the plan was for me to go there with my high school bf, who last minute decided to go to school in another state. now i am trapped at the crazy baptist school where i know no one- except my new dorm roomie whom i have absolutely nothing in common with. wonderful. i met some fun people, but was really unhappy for the first part of the year.
i had met jonathan earlier in the year, but we never really spent time together until the show '24' started in january. i would go over to his apartment with some of our other friends and something about him was just really intriguing to me. i had been in a long-distance relationship and it was just not working. i had started to develop feelings towards jonathan which really freaked me out since i hadnt had feelings for anyone but my bf in 2 and a half years.
february 2005, i dumped my bf over the phone. i couldnt ignore my feelings for jonathan. i was falling for him hard. we spent alot of time together, but he said the timing wasnt right.
we spent the next two years in some major ups and downs. one minute we were in love, the next we hated each other, the next we were best friends. very emotionally exhausting. i had told him several times that we were meant for each other. im certain he believed me, but i think it terrified him!
december 2006, i decided i couldnt handle it anymore- that i needed to stay away from him and that he clearly did not want to be with me. i started dating someone else.
february 2007. things got dramatic with the guy i was dating. jonathan and i had been talking a little and he told me that he wanted to be with me. i didnt believe him. around that time, the guy i was dating randomly decided to bring up the fact that i was in love with jonathan and that i always had been in love with jonathan. he wanted me to tell him that it wasnt true. obviously, i couldnt deny it, so things between he and i ended quickly. i didnt care. i immediately called jonathan and confessed all my feelings. we spent a few days rekindling the intense feelings we had felt 2 years ago.
we officially started dating right after midnight valentines day (technically the day after valentines day, so our anniversary wouldnt be valentines day. of course that would be way too cheesy for jonathan.)
here we are, 3 years later: married, with a house and a sweet puppy.
