I’m not going to lie, I’ve been so busy filming today that it did slip my mind to write this post, but it’s 11 PM so it still counts because it’s before midnight.
This was actually supposed to be the topic for another day but I thought I’d change things up a bit. The challenge is to talk about your current relationship and if you’re single you discuss single life.
This love story dates back to when I was in 11th grade. Yes, high school sweethearts. I met Matthew by chance when he walked past one of my friends. My curiosity got the better of me and I just HAD to find out who this handsome young man was. I still remember I was on my way to math class when I saw him. After my friend had told me who he was, I asked her if she could set us up and see if anything would happen. After plucking up the courage to send him a text, he replied with “I’m really busy with my studies at the moment, I’ll talk to you after exams”. Ouch, burn, right? Nope, I really admired his dedication to his studies and his ambition just made me admire him even more. Surely enough, once exams were over we got to know each other and became very good friends. Things were a bit quiet on the romantic front but after a few ups and downs this lovely young gentleman asked me to be his girlfriend on the 23rd of February 2013. We had a great relationship and when Matthew left to start university (He’s a year older than me) we grew apart and decided to go our separate ways. However, it didn’t last very long. After some talking and working out a few things, Matthew and I rekindled our relationship and I’m not going to lie, it still feels today like we never left each other. I think our time apart really made me realize that I had lost more than just a boyfriend, I lost a part of myself. Over time he had become way more than a boyfriend but a partner in crime, a best friend and a better half.
Being in a 3 year relationship is not easy. To this day I still ask myself “How on Earth did I get so lucky” but I wouldn’t trade that feeling for anything in the world. Many people think that once you end a relationship there is no way it can go back to the way it used to be. Take it from me, if you really want it badly enough then it can be anything you want it to be. I’ve learned a lot from my time with Matthew. He’s even teaching me how to drive at the moment!
He’s really been a great role model and friend and whenever I need advice, he’s the one I know I can run to any time of day.
Here’s to almost 3 years together babe, and many many more.
