Jeremy and I were never one of those “let’s be friends and take things slow” kind of couples. We started dating pretty soon after we met and never looked back…something just fit.
I will never forget the day we met. We had been introduced in passing before, but had never even had a conversation…and then one day things changed. We met up with a friend who was taking a photography course so she could practice taking pictures on the two of us and one other friend. I was the serious one, a little reserved with an extra dose of prim and proper. Jeremy was the opposite, he was the life of the party and always making people laugh.
We met that day in the middle of campus, and something happened. It wasn’t love the first time I saw his handsome face. I wasn’t really having that great of a day when I showed up for the little photo shoot that Saturday morning, but then he made me laugh. Despite my bad day and the things that I thought had gone wrong, he made me smile. And when I was with him, I seemed to forget all of my troubles. Everything just seemed to fit.
I went home that evening knowing there was something there, I wanted to laugh like that for the rest of my life. I wanted to have someone to make me smile, even in the bad days. I wanted to spend my life with him.
It has been 5 years since that day and he still makes me laugh, and turns my bad days to good days.
