On June 8th, 2012, I met my soul mate.
It might sound silly because at the time we were only 13, and knew each other for only 3 days, but that day changed my life forever. My now boyfriend of 6 years came up to me at our neighborhood pool, and the rest is history. We met at the pool June 6th, 7th, and 8th, and on the 3rd day, he asked me to be his girlfriend. Mind you, I was only in the 8th grade, it was the summer going into my freshman year of high school, and I said yes only because my best friend at the time Caroline was also securing her summer fling.
Now, my boyfriend and I joke that this is the longest summer fling of our lives, and the best accident to ever happen. We only knew each other for 3 days, and in another 3 days, we told each other we loved each other. We were each others' first "everythings", we have grown up together, and it is all because of that day, 6 years ago at the pool, when the skaterboy asked me to be his girlfriend. The picture below is us at our Senior Prom.
