Love Story

As all of you know, I don’t really talk about my personal life on my blog. Only a few of you know that I have a boyfriend, and as of today, we’ve been dating for a year and a half. So I thought today would be the perfect day to talk about him!

I met my best friend, Tyler James Bowles, on Thursday, September 1, 2011. It was the third day of freshman year, so I was still meeting new people because I go to a Catholic high school and didn’t really know anyone there. Tyler and I ironically had five out of seven classes together, so we were destined to meet at some point. We met in biology because we sat across from each other. He loved a rapper named Chris Webby (and he still does!), so we somehow got onto that topic. We were talking about some of Christ Webby’s songs, and I was making it seem like I knew so much about him even though I only knew like one of his songs because my sister listened to him. Smooth, right?

We started texting that night because it was the start of Labor Day Weekend. I remember texting him from the time he got out of football until 10:30 that night because I was practically falling asleep. I waited for him to text me the night day because I didn’t want to come off as annoying. He texted me at around 1:30 that afternoon, and we texted the rest of the day.

On Saturday, September 3, 2011, we were texting again. I was telling him how I really wanted to see “Shark Night” because I love scary movies! He told me that we should see it later that night, so I started freaking out. I obviously didn’t want to go with just him to the movies because a. I didn’t know him for that long and b. what if he ended up being weird?! Then I would be stuck by myself with him for the rest of the night! So I brought my best friend, Sam, and she brought one of her guy friends.

When I was getting ready to go to the movies, I tried to make sure that I looked my best. I was so nervous when I got there because I had started to like Tyler! I ended up seeing two of my friends from my middle school there, and Tyler kept talking to them before the movie started, which made me so jealous for some reason. Once the movie started, everything went well and we whispered during a lot of the movie. Halfway through the movie, I was dying for him to just make a move already and hold my hand, and I was so happy when he did.

Later that night, when we were texting, he told me he liked me, so I told him I liked him too. We had a thing from September 3, 2011 (the night of the movies) until September 24, 2011, when he asked me out.

We’ve been dating for over a year and a half now! Tyler and I have had a lot of ups and downs in our relationship, but I love him. He does make me happy, and that’s all that matters.

Since I probably bore all of you with that writing, I’ll show you pictures of us now! If you follow me on my personal Twitter and/or personal Instagram, you’ll see that I occasionally tweet to him/about him and post pictures of us.
