five great years
Today is what my boyfriend and I celebrate as our 5 year dating anniversary! I feel like a dating anniversary is a bit juvenile, but it's something I celebrate none the less.
We were still in high school when we started dated. After almost a year of me liking him and trying to "flirt" with him, he finally started to come around and feel the same way! He tells me now that when he first met me, he thought I was really weird. To his credit...I was. It was my last week of high school classes, and he was in Oklahoma for a 4-H land judging competition. We talked on the phone every night that he was gone, and that was back when we would talk for hours (now our phone conversations are usually no longer than 1 minute). One of the nights, I told him a few people had asked me if we were dating and I didn't really know what to say. That was my way of asking him if we were dating...and he said he figured I could just say we were. So that's where it began...
And 5 years later, here we are...me a college graduate and him graduating in 2 weeks. It's been a long and happy 5 years! We still laugh about the times back in high school when he thought I was strange, but really I don't think that's changed :)
