We dated for seven years before getting married. We met in high school. She was a senior and I was a junior. Kind of a big deal to be dating a senior back then or at least I thought so.
We had briefly met at a friend's house and I just could not get that girl off my mind. So I wrote her a poem and gave it to her after English class. Our relationship started from that day.
I went away for college and she stayed put in our home town. We did the long distance relationship thing for 4 years. With no car at the time I got very creative about finding ways home including hooking up with a flight instructor and taking flying lessons to get me home for the weekend.
I wanted to finish college before marrying which is one of the reasons we dated so long.
Yeah, I knew she was the one early on in our relationship. It's been 31 years now since we met and I love her more each day.
