In September I will have been with my boyfriend for 11 years. I met him right after highschool. Love at first sight!!!
I was in the process of trying to get out of a very bad/abusive relationship and wasn't looking for a new relationship. I didn't want to go to college, and my mom told me I had to get a job. She wasn't about to let me just sit around the house and mooch. So, I got a job at the local ice cream store. I worked in the evenings, but one day the person who worked during the day quit so I took over the day shift. One day, in walked this hot guy.
Long story short, we moved in together shortly thereafter and have been together ever since. We have been through some tough stuff, but have managed to stick together through it all. He did ask me to marry him about 8 years ago, but we just never got around to actually doing it. I don't care, we are together and it works, and that is all that matters to us. Whenever we go out, people always think we are married, and they always have. I guess we have a married look to us, or something. I always correct them, but he likes to play it up. He knows it embarrasses me :rollseyes:
