GTKY- H and me

I met my H during my senior year of college in 2005. He'd graduated a few years before me, but was visiting my college town with friends in an attempt to meet girls.

One of his friends was dating- and is now married to- my BFF. We all met up that night, drank too much Bud Light, played foosball in a college bar.... And the rest is history. I was 21, H was 24.

When I graduated, I moved to the town where he was living (which was my hometown, but my family no longer lived there). We continued dating for about another year or so when he got the itch to move. He was from another state and missed it, I had nothing keeping me there.

We packed up and move across the country. We were not yet engaged so I refused to live with him, but our relationship grew enormously. I never had that moment where I "knew" he was the one-- but I knew he was a good one and knew that he'd always take care of me.

We finally got engaged in 2009 and married in 2010.

I never thought of him as my best friend. I sometimes question our differences in beliefs, hobbies, family backgrounds. I don't feel like he makes me a better person.

But. He is truly my other half. What I lack, he picks up- and vice versa. I love spending time with him. We have so much fun, we laugh. We are still as infatuated with each other as we were in 2005, and now we have so much love on top of that. We have gone through a lot, and only the two of us share those experiences. We've bonded over loss, and grown up together. I truly can't imagine, and don't want to imagine, my life without him. He's my person. I am happy to spend my life with him, and excited to see what our future will bring. Regardless of how it all pans out (the kid stuff), I'm so lucky to have him as my partner on this journey.
