Friday night after Kyle's high school basketball game, sitting on the couch up in Kyle's f.r.o.g., watching, of all movies, Red Dragon (I totally don't watch scary movies anymore, but they were always fun to watch with boys back in the day!).
Here's how the convo went...
Kyle: "So, I, uhhh, heard from Liz that you liked me
Me: "Well, I, heard from Liz that you liked me. So, uh, what should we do about that?
Kyle: "I, uh, guess we should start going out."
Me: "I guess that sounds like a plan."
Listen to us trying to play it so cool! Wow, how Saved By the Bell could we get! But, no matter how "high school" our relationship started out, we built an extremely solid foundation and never once looked back. We went to different colleges that were only about 30 miles apart, which gave us the perfect amount of distance. We were able to grow into our own in college together and apart. We had separate lives that were somehow interwoven nicely. We grew up together, became adults together, and learned some pretty tough lessons together. We took our relationship for granted at times, fought with the best of them (and still do!), but could never get past the fact that at the end of the day, we knew our love was special and that we were better together than we could ever be apart.
