In 5th grade we dated for several months, but we were young and naive.
Fast forward. Senior year we had a class together, and we both were in longtime relationships. We talked all the time. They broke up, and we talked even more. When my boyfriend and I fought he was there, comforting me saying it would be OK, wiping my tears. Anything I needed, he was there in a second. After an entire year of be an amazing friend, my sad excuse for a man broke up with me, and I finally realized my amazing friend was the love of my life.
Postscript: we’ve been together six months, and we are going to get married and be in love for the rest of our lives. He is my prince and makes me feel like a princess.
