From Yahoo! Messenger to Phone to Hopefully Here With MeBy Allie   4/03/2009
Well, I guess I should say I met him, Kenny, THE GREATEST MAN ON EARTH, probably long before we actually started talking. I had probably talked to him a couple times but then he was in Texas with his then girlfriend who was a (fill in here) and she was so horrible to him. I didn't realize it then but I really liked him. He called me on the phone while he was still there, but after they had broken up, I knew I liked him that night when I was talking to him on the phone. He just was really funny and kept me laughing. He was making fun of me and picking on me saying I sounded like I was high and then we went into a conversation about how much we hate drugs. Silly huh?
He was feeling really depressed and upset because of his ex and I was thinking, "Maybe I can cheer him up." So I told him that I liked him and he said he liked me too and the very next day we were in a relationship and it has lasted almost 7 months now. =D He picks on me all the time, and I pick right back. He has heard me cry, laugh, and yell, and I've heard him cry and laugh. He stopped smoking because I asked him to and he told me that he would do anything for me. I love this man and nothing will stop me from meeting him.
We always talk about how were going to raise our children and what our meeting experience is going to be like and what our house will look like. We have our ups and downs and then our Really really downs. But we overcome them just for more time to learn about each other and prepare ourselves for the wonderful, scary, exciting, nervous, anxious, blushing, and I-want-to-hug-you-but-I'm-too-afraid-of-what-will-happen moments.
I'm a senior in high school and he has dropped out of high school (the ultimate love story right?) But he says he is going to get a job and save up money to see me and I suggested to him to going to night classes and getting a GED and go to college possibly if he can. I have only had two relationships that weren't long distance, but several long distance ones. Most of them didn't work out because we were not able to communicate regularly. I am able to talk to him daily and even though I don't always answer my phone in a timely fashion, he continues to call which tells me that he really cares about me.
The only problem that I see might give us trouble is my father since he is very protective. I want to have him come to graduation and possibly stay for a week either before or after graduation. (as a graduation present from my parents?) I could pay for a plane ticket since I had been saving for a prom dress but I don't think I'm going to buy one since I can borrow one and return it (free!) All I would need is approval from my dad. =D
I'm reading this to him while on the phone, so he must really care since I wrote all this and he's not asleep yet =D oh wait.... nevermind.... I hear snoring... just not really ... he makes me so happy and makes me laugh all the time. Plus it helps that he says I'm beautiful and always asks me how my day went and calls me in the morning to wake me up and wish me a good day before I have to do anything.
Several times I have stayed on the phone with him until 3 in the morning when I had to get up three hours later. I never really cared because it was worth it. I always tell him to come and lay with me when I'm laying in bed and he says "I wish I could." I always kiss the phone and he kisses the phone back and I think its very sweet. He always says to me, " Forever and ever, forever and always," and it always makes me smile. I have butterflies and a giddy feeling like nothing can be wrong when I talk to him.
I'm sorry I've taken up so much space and wasted all of your lives, but I could go on and on about this man. He is the center of my world and my life. I thank the world for him all the time. I love him. I told him about a story of when I went fishing one time with my family and I kissed a fish before I threw it back in the water and he always calls me fish kisser now and it makes me smile and yell at him saying, "Meanie!"
