Seven years ago today, my little love bug decided to say hello. She was 19 and starting college in rochester, i was 24 and starting grad school in san Diego. Over the next couple years we would not only end up talking near every day but when we did talk, it would end up being for hours - 5 hour Skype sessions weren't unusual. I finished grad school, drove 2,500 miles home, and the next morning I drive 100 more to go see @innessabear
I knew it when i saw her, maybe she did too, i dont know, but my heart smiled for the first time.
For the next 5 years we developed our friendship, hoping it would become a relationship. Since we met i have lived in 3 different states, never closer than a 4hour drive, and difficult to develop true chemistry. So i pleaded with her to visit me month after month, every year, because i knew when she did we could begin.
Flash forward to a flashback in march, my love comes to visit me, tells me we shouldnt risk the 'what if' of not trying, of not committing to each other. I waited years for those words.
My heart smiled a second time. My love, loved me.
