They met in grade school, exchanging insults on the playground. He pulled her hair. She stuck her gum on his seat in school, where it neatly lodged on his pants.
They were together in high school, sharing triumphs and disasters, hopes and dreams, romance and heartbreaks, always remaining “just friends.”
Then they went away to different colleges and rarely communicated. They drifted apart to find new friends, new ideas, new challenges. Still, they called each other up whenever they were home for the holidays and found their friendship still alive.
Who knows when their friendship turned to love? Neither of them is sure. He now insists he loved her from the moment he first saw her; she’s not so sure when it happened.
But one thing they are sure of now is that they will be together forever, for the rest of their lives—and beyond.
What is the story of your relationship? How did you meet? When did you know he/she was the one you wanted to share your life with?
