Well we ofically met on facebook but he had seen me before…
May 2010. One day we were at our conformation rehersal and he was there from the spanish commnunity and I was there for the brasillian community. I had never seen him before, even though the church isn’t that big. But on that day I was with my bestfriend, and we sat down towards the middle. And we started looking for people we might know, and she pointed to this kid who was sitting towards the back on the other side and said “Hey that kid goes to my school” but I couldn’t really see, and wasn’t really interested so I just left it alone.
Then around a week later I get a message on facebook. No actually two messages. From this kid asking me if I was at conformation on saturday and then another one asking if I was from comformation and then begging me to text him because he was grounded and couldn’t really talk. I just thought this was really creepy but out of curiosity I accepted him and texted him. He told me that his bestfriend, (the one my friend pointed at) knows my bestfriend.. what a small world. and he added her on facebook and asked for my name and my facebook. He said that ever since he saw me, he found my interesting and said I had an amazing smile and just had to get to know me.
From then on, we texted every single day. He would always text me first, and I really enjoyed talking to him because he kept the conversation going. There was even one day when I was sitting in third period waiting for him to text me, and he didnt. So I finally texted him, that was when I started falling.
At that time, I had a boyfriend. A guy that I didn’t really like, but I couldnt get myself to break up with him… I was scared to tell Gabriel about it because I really liked him and I didn’t want to ruin things between us. But one night when we were talking on the phone for five hours I decided to tell him. His answered suprised me, I thought he was going to say forget it and whatnot. But he told me he would wait for me, no matter how long. And for me to take my time and make sure I made the right decision. That same night I broke up with my boyfriend. And fell some more for Gabriel.
He started coming over constantly, and we’d stay up talking on the phone all the time. It was just a crush, but I felt like we were something more. On June 23, 2010 we went to take my little brother and sister to karate class and as we were sitting outside we were talking about us, and he turned to me and asked me to be his girlfriend. My heart started beating fast, my hands were sweating, and yet I didnt answer him. When his mom went to go pick him up, I told him yes. and he was like yes what? I was like, Yes to the question you asked me later. It was nothing special, but it was so “us” I wouldnt change a thign about it.
He went to Colombia 2 weeks later, for 5 weeks and he called me everysingle day, three times a day like he promised ^.^
We spent an amazing one year and two months together, falling more in love with him everyday. He became my bestfriend, the one I trust with everything. We talked about our future, our kids, vacation, our house. Everything. Things were perfect, it was like a dream. And then my parents decided to move to Brasil.. that tore me apart, I couldnt stand being away from him. But we decided to take it one day at a time.
I moved on August 3, 2011. Things were great in the beginning we were getting along fine. And then the rough patches started. We began fighting and arguing more than talking and laughing. We started doubting what we were doing and we both decided to call it off, but still remain friends. The things is, he had already bought his ticket to come visit me and spend Christmas and New Years here.
As December came along, we fought more than ever. In fact we got in a HUGE fight 6 days before he was supposed to come. We cried, I told him not to come. But the next day, I talked to my mom about it and she said that he should come, we could stay friends. So I told him, and he was ccoming.. December 13, 2011 he’d be here for 3 weeks
I couldnt sleep for 4 days and when the day finally came, everything fell into place. I couldnt handle just being his friend, when being more than that just came naturally. Being able to sleep and wake up with him was the best thing ever, words cant describe how happy he made me. It made us both realize how much we missed each other and how what we have is special and we shouldnt give up without a fight.
So this time we’r doing it right, giving it another shot. And proving everyone wrong. c: I have never been so sure about anything in my life like I am of him. He completes me. He’s my other half, my soulmate.
