So I drove 10 hours to hangout with a guy I've only met once.
I brought a friend with me because I'm not completely crazy!
I kept thinking I had to figure it out
1) who my brothers best friend was
2) why I thought he was so attractive.
So, my friend and I came up and he completely swept me off my feet. I never had a man treat the way he did, and still does. He was such a gentleman. He took us to New York City, because I told him it was on my bucket list. After that, I could tell he thought I was cool too.
We continued to text/call each other after my visit. Each month when he went to Ft. Knox for drill, we would meet up, even if it was for 20 minutes. My mom and I then visited Charlie and his parents that summer and we continued to grow feelings for each other. We continued traveling back and forth for a year and a half without even holding a hand, just awkward long hugs (lol) but everyone knew we liked each other.
On March 21st 2014, when Charlie came down to visit he FINALLY asked me to be his girlfriend. I can't even explain the happiness that I felt in that very moment.
With our long distance relationship we always try to spend every second together, when we get the chance. It doesn't even matter what we are doing as long as we are together.
