no not really. it started in freshman year, we had biology and geography class together but i never truly noticed him. it wasn’t until second semester that we truly became friends. then sophomore year we became best friends. he would walk me to class, carry my books and hug me goodbye. i still didn’t notice him. we saw eachother everyday and we talked all the time.
then suddenly at the end of junior year he told me he was moving away. i was bummed but there was nothing i could really do about it. we still talked on the phone regularly and texted all the time. he would visit from time to time and always came to my house to see me. i never had a clue.
when my senior prom came around, i was bummed that i had no one to go with. i told him about it and he suggested we go together. prom with him was amazing. he didn’t restrict me from dancing with my other friends but wasn’t afraid of acting silly with me and doing the robot and other cheesy dance moves with me.
after prom we went back to the hotel room with our friends and laid on the pull-out sofabed together while watching “the sandlot”. as we laid there cuddling, i suddenly realized, this guy is amazing. he is such a gentleman, he is such a nerd, he is such a sweetheart.
as the days went by, we hung out more and more. then one night, exactly a year ago on may 19th, he asked me how i felt about him. taken by surprise, i didn’t know what to say. he poured out his heart and confessed that he had been having a crush on me since freshman year. then he proceeded to ask me to be his girlfriend. me being OCD and whatnot told him to ask me tomorrow on the 20th because it was an even number. thinking he would ask me tomorrow afternoon or something, i got ready for bed. at precisely 12’oclock midnight, he texted me. “dulce, will you be my girlfriend?” of course, i accepted his courtship. from the time i said yes, my life has been nothing but a fairytale. he makes me absolutely happy everyday. we have no issues and no major disagreements, if we do have small arguements, he will be the bigger person and try to work it out. i am so blessed to have him in my life and in my heart. he is more than what i deserve and he makes me happier every day. i absolutely am in love with him. i don’t understand to this day how i did not notice the signs of him liking me, but i’m glad that he is mine and i am his. i love you chad copelin. happy 1 year anniversary.
