A reason to believe
This is something i find if not helpful, imformative to everyone, it
doesn't matter if you're a girl or a guy...here goes..
my freshman year was starting and i had a best friend of the opposite sex...we'll call him "Jon". well, Jon had a crush on me ever since he moved here in the 7 grade- it's funny, because 5 years later, i can still remember the exact thing he was wearing and what he said to me. i was scared to start a relationship with Jon simply because i didn't want something to happen to our friendship that i held so close to my heart. still, i was completly head over heels and i couldn't help to say yes.
so, on November 26, 2000, while talking a three hour conversation with jon, i said yes, i'd be his girlfriend. it started out to great, we got along perfectly. 4 months past, and his great- grandfather died. i went to the funeral with him, and met all of his family.right away, i was accepted and i loved that. my parents had heard some bad things about jon's attitude, but what they didn't know was what they heard was the total and complete opposite of how he really was. still, i was told to break up with him and my parents meant it.
jon and i weren't ready for our relationship to be over yet, so we snuck around for almost 2 years. my junior year rolled around so quickly. i had been in so much trouble for lying to my parents about seeing jon. i think every cop in the state of ohio knew who i was.
when prom came around, jon asked 6 months in advance..i said yes, because he was my boyfriend still. not even 2 months before prom, he cheated on me... i was so hurt. we had talked about marriage and kids and just the "perfect" life. you can imagine how i felt. i had given him so much... i lied to everyone for him....and i was so certain he felt the same.
my friend, we'll call him "bob", comforted me alot throughout the break up... he always knew what to say to make me feel better about myself. the sad thing is, the sweet things that he'd say to me wasn't just to make me feel better, he had a crush on me and i didn't even know it. as silly as that sounds, i finally got it out of him. he (bob) asked me to the junior prom 03. we have been dating since...
bob treats me with more respect that anyone ever has, my parents absolutly love him, and we're together 24-7. to him, i'll never do anything wrong, and vice versa, he's what i call "my prince charming". i was so scared to start another relationship because of how badly i was hurt before, but i'm so happy i took the chance...look what i'd be missing out on now...
i guess the whole point to this story is to let you know that it's ok to let go of something.... sometimes the best thing to do is the hardest thing. you never know what you're gonna miss out on if you don't give it a try.
