It was "love at first sight" that's what he said. I was still in college when i met my him(way back 2009), his name's john joseph or "JJ" for short. I was still getting over my first love (which took me 6 years before i finally moved on)
. We studied the same course and at the same school year. He was the cool guy with a lot of sense of humor, but that didn't catch my attention. I never really expected that at that moment, i was able to meet "the best man i ever knew".
Nope, i didn't met him at the first day of our class. Turns out, he was a late enrollee. The first time i saw him, i immediately thought he was gay, but oops! My bad! I was just kidding
. He was not the kind of guy that i would date. I usually date guys that are TDH or if i may say, "Tall, Dark and Handsome" and he didn't met that standard. Ofcourse i dated other guys in as well in that 6 years. But that's out of desperation trying to move on from the past. Other people say "the best way to get over a person is to start a new relationship and be attached to it" but i guess for me, it wasn't. Until he came into my life.
He didn't introduce himself to me until our professor said that we had to do a presentation together. He asked me to work on the presentation right after class so, i agreed. Oh, the presentation was for us to do a "DUET", yes, you read it right. He wasn't the guy that i knew who could sing but i was wrong. He blew me away with his voice! Believe it or not but he sounded much like Janno Gibbs and he also plays the piano. Then i thought, he had some of the traits like the man whom i first fell in love with, well except for the fact that my first love couldn't really sing but JJ is really something.
And so it was, (sigh) the day of our presentation came and everyone in the class was blabbering about something. A friend of mine told me and she said that everyone thoght that we look good together, that all that's missing is wedding bells (say what?). I didn't think of it too much because i knew it'll be awkward for the both of us. He gave me something after we did the presentation, it was a love letter
. It was my first time to receive a love letter so i didn't know how to react. My face was all blank and i just said thankyou. Ofcourse i didn't read it immediately but at the moment that i was going to, he said something first. He said, "please read it carefully and don't ask me anything after". I'm not sure what he meant by that but i didn't read the letter right away, i read it when i got home. I don't know what that letter contains but i was so curious to read it.
When i finally got home, i rushed to my room and read it says. "I hate to say this but I think you love too much and think too little. You're loving someone too much and not think about what's left for yourself. You know when they say don't fall
in love? That's because everything that falls, breaks
. So you better love someone who will love you back or else, I will. P.S. I know that after read this, you'll definitely ask me out, but let me do the honor." That letter made my day, and even the day after that. I cannot wait 'til the end of sembreak comes and i'll see him again. I wanted to thank him for everything that he's done.
Then the second sem started. I was excited to go to school for the first time.
I was expecting to see him but he didn't show up at class that morning. It also happened in one week. I asked our professor what happened to him and he said he dropped out of school since the last day of our first sem ended. The LORD says everything that happens has its reason. Even if it doesn't mean good or bad, we just have to trust GOD. So, i prayed for him, wherever he is, whoever he's with and whatever he's doing at that moment. I prayed for the LORD o keep him safe as always and for me to find reach his heart.
I guess I never really should've expected too much in return. So I tried to forget him. But it seemed like GOD didn't want me to just yet. One day, (it was November of 2012) I received a message through facebook. I didn't know who it was so but when i read it, I suddenly got surprised. "Hi officemate!" and yes, it was JJ. I was already working for a BPO company back then. He was assigned on one of my previous account so we had a lot to talk about. Then and there, i was the one who asked him out for breakfast. Then at the first time, I was excited to go to work. We had breakfast at a resto near our workplace so it wouldn't be a hassle. It was officially our first date. We talked about a lot of things, just anything under the sun. It seemed like he missed me a lot so he asked me later on a second date, for dinner. And it got followed by many dates since then...
How did it ended? Ofcourse he's now my boyfriend for almost four months now and we're still taking things slow and we're still on the "getting to know each other" level eventhough we already know each other for a long time. I can say not only that he's my boyfriend, he's also my bestfriend, my no.1 fan and my worst enemy at sometimes. He's the all-in-one drug that i will never get over with. He's the man of my dreams, and I'm the woman of his (i guess).
I'm sooo soorry if this story is too long. This is the shortest possible way that i can tell how i met my boyfriend..peace!
