Our relationship began like very few relationships do, on Facebook. In June of 2009, after I had been accepted into a Fall 2009 freshman class, a boy said hello in a message and a 4-page paper could not even touch the surface of our relationship in those past 2 years, but I will do my best to explain as much as possible. Over the next few months, the
We spent our time in each other's company every chance we had. We often went on dates that often included hiking and attending drive-in movies. As our relationship progressed, matters grew serious. She would be leaving to attend Morehead University and I would continue to attend school in Pike County. We both decided that one night, whatever innocence our relationship contained, would be lost. After that, my love for her grew stronger. For me, it felt like our love was made for a movie screen. She was the first girl that I came to truly love and care about. All my past relationships faded away into nothing but silly flings that seemed to not matter anymore. She was all that was on my
Before my big move to Houston about three years ago for college, it was my last summer back home in a little city called Amarillo, which is considered “West Texas,” although it’s actually located geographically north within the heart of the Texas Panhandle. I was enjoying every last bits of the time that I’ve had left with my friends and family. The last thing I could think of worrying about during that summer was a romantic relationship. My intentions were to make bittersweet memories and to have what they would call, fun. I went out almost every single weekend for the first month of my last summer and met tons of friends and I became closer to old casual friends. Within that first month of consistently going out and hanging out with all these friends that I became close to, I met a very sweet, charming, and interesting guy named Andy. Something about him caught my attention. He was silly and funny without even trying, so I took an interest in him. We started messaging each other on Facebook then texting and making polite conversations. Before I knew it, this was the starting point to a whole new friendship. When he first messaged me, as much as I hesitated to respond to him because I knew I was moving and I did not want to develop feelings just leave everything behind, I wanted to not just respond but to strike more conversations. I became curious about him and I wanted to find out more and more.
In middle school I met a girl who quickly became my best friend. After we met, we did nearly everything together. We were simply incepreable. We continued to be very close all the way up into junior year of high school. This is when she met and started dating one of the senior boys from our school. She had always had a thing for "bad boys" and this boy was a picture perfect representation of one. After she started seeing him more, I started seeing her less and less. The boy she was dating apparently disliked me; a lot. He began to take control of everything in her life. When she came to lunch everyday at school, she would sit with me and a group of my friends and tell us how he would hit
In the middle of my junior year, I was finally happy. Hanging with new friends and enjoying my life as a single high school student. I had never dated someone at Grassfield High School. I felt I would end high school without having one. This changed at an unexpected time. I remember walking to the junior lot everyday and Grant Holloway, who everyone knows, teased me daily about my passion for Ohio State. I thought it was innocent since he was going to a Southeastern Conference non-powerhouse in football – well at least I feel it is a non-powerhouse. One day, my friend Gabby said something to me about him teasing me. She questioned if he was interested in me and I shrugged it off because I knew he was off and on with his ex. Until one day, I
Sailing was smooth for the following few years and to everyone’s surprise, I did well in high school. I made it into university for Bachelor of Arts, and this was where I came across him again. He was my first friend at undergrad year. The moment I saw him we clicked, as though we were long time friends that just took a holiday away from each other. Hours of my time was invested into him. He was the first and only person I ever opened up myself to and told about my secrets. We would always hang out amidst other friends and he would always come to my house but I never went to his. He accepted me for who I was and that was why I was so drawn to him
I’ve known of Jaquelle since my junior year in highschool. I met him one day during rap period playing a computer game. We’d greet each other and have a couple laughs whenever we saw one another, but that was really the extent of our friendship. It wasn’t until this year, my senior year, that Jaquelle became one of my closest friends. During the first semester I walked into my third period class looking for friends, as everyone does during the first day of school. I didn’t see any of my close friends, but I saw Jaquelle and knew that we were cool so I sat by him. We had are laughs and jokes as we did in rap period from the previous year. It wasn’t until we started talking about our past experiences in high school that we got close.
It all began in the summer of 2015. There was a close group of friends that were almost torn apart over one girl in the group. It almost completely destroyed the friendship that had been built upon over the years. There was a decision to be made and I was the one to decide.
The summer between our sophomore and junior year of high school, we started officially dating. After junior year, Theo dual enrolled in college and that was when everything changed. I went from seeing him every day to then only seeing him once a week. Once we graduated high school we both ended up going in different directions for college. In high school, Theo became very interested and involved in the welding program. After taking a few classes, he decided that he wanted to get a certification. Unsure what I wanted to do, I decided that going to a small school close to home was the best option for me. The adjustment was anything but easy for both of us.This was all a huge shock for our relationship because we went from talking online, to seeing each other everyday, then to never seeing each other because we decided to go to different colleges and pursue our dreams.
October 8, 2015, was the first band concert of the year. I always enjoy band concerts. A group including Justin Hansen, who was dating Tori at the time, Brette Bryant, Tori and me all decided to go to Cook-Out really quickly. As we pulled in Tori pointed to Henry’s car and explained how it broke down earlier and how he was upset. I thought it would be nice if we left him an encouraging note on the windshield of the car, so he would see when we went to retrieve the car later that night. They all agreed that was a good idea, so we all wrote personalized notes on a sheet of notebook paper and left it. That night after the concert, Henry sent me a text thanking me for the note. He told me how he really needed the encouragement. At that moment, I figured it would be a great time to tell Henry I liked him. I wasn 't completely sure that I liked him, but I knew I enjoyed him slightly more than just a friend. Much to my surprise, he told me he felt the same way about me. He was actually jealous when he saw how much I liked Wallace, and wished it was him. That made me feel great, because I never knew the boy in my Latin 2 class, felt the same way. As a result, we had a mutual agreement that we would attempt a relationship. I never truly saw a future for us the way he saw and by the third week, I cut off whatever we were. I tried to explain to him how I felt,
We hadn’t talked in a few months. Before that, we were the best of friends. We hung out all the time, we told each other every detail in each other’s lives. Everything was discussed, from dates to homework to sports to drama.At one point he was even the person I asked for fashion advice, just because it was fun. I wasn’t so sure if he would ever want to speak to me again, after what we had impressions we had parted with. We didn’t exactly leave on perfect terms. At the end of the former school year, My family flew into chaos.
Every part of our date went perfectly, so I asked her out again, and she agreed. After that date went just as smooth, we officially became a real couple, and I couldn’t have been more pleased about it. After we had been dating
My friend Bryan and I had never been in a situation like this one before. We had always promised each other that nothing or no one would ever interfere with our friendship. Well this particular school year everything was about to change. We started the year off great, playing football, and looking forward to our big homecoming dance. This is when we would meet the girl that would almost destroy our friendship. We all met up at a mutual friend’s house who was throwing an after party bash.
It was the beginning of your junior year at EBHS and his freshman year at CVCC. A year ago you tried dating, but he left you “heartbroken”, in the loosest sense of the word, after dumping you for what my grandma would call a hoebag. After resenting him for a few months, you become best friends, bringing us back to the start of the school year. You weren’t “Facebook Official” until November, but you had basically been dating since August. Things were going remarkably well. He came to every home football game and band competition, even band practice, cheering you on and supporting you. Every free weekend, you were together typically watching scary movies because they’re your favorite. You were happy… January rolls around and you start having doubts that your relationship is going to last. You start to see each other less and less. By the end of February, you decide that breaking up is the best thing for you both. A few weeks after the breakup, he stops by your house to drop off the book he borrowed and never read. He knocks on the door, gives the book to your
Alison and I first met in grade nine; it was first semester, period one geography. Geography was not the most interesting class, making it easier for us to become great friends because all we did was talk. Even though we have gotten in trouble quite a few times, that never stopped us from telling each other stories about our weekends and our interests. But never the less all of the times we got into trouble, I got to know Alison very well and figured out that we are two different types of people that share many of the same interests. We both love living in the moment and going on spontaneous adventures, however, Alison is more daring and willing to try new things, where I am much more conservative and shy. Because of our two different, yet similar personalities we have created some great memories together.
