Day 01: My Current Relationship

Where do I start?

I've been in a relationship with my boyfriend for almost 5 years now. It seems like just yesterday though, that I first saw him. It wasn't love at first sight. Our story wasn't entirely like a fairytale. The way we fell in love is kind of funny and embarrassing at the same time, but I won't bore you with all those details.

When I say it wasn't a fairytale, I mean that when I first met him, we didn't pay much attention to each other. We met through a mutual friend and he was always, well, there. He was just a guy I knew and I was just a girl he knew. We weren't interested in each other until we actually got to know each other. At that point, it did quickly become a fairytale. It seemed almost like a puzzle piece, he just seemed to fit. Our first real conversation was insane. We had a "Where have you been?" moment and I truly noticed him for the first time. Some parts are blurry and I can't remember every detail clearly now, but I do remember that it was a turning point in my life. That time in my life is something that I hold really close to my heart.

Over the 5 years, we've changed so much. Our relationship and the individuals that we are have changed. It's nice to spend your life with someone and be able to change and mature alongside them. We started dating when we were only 17 years old and now, it seems as though that was forever ago. Being at an age now where we're adults and making real life decisions for ourselves, it's crazy to think that we met at such a different place in our lives.

I don't know how to describe him. He is everything  that I would want in a man and everything that I need. It's insane. There isn't one quality or trait that I would change about him. He's not perfect and we are total opposites. I guess, the phrase, "Opposites attract" really does apply here. However, I think, when you are able to find someone that compliments you and makes you a better version of yourself, is when you know that you've found someone for you. He's incredibly smart, funny and charming, he challenges me, he makes me better... the list goes on but the most important thing is, he's my best friend.

Our relationship, by no means, is perfect. We do have arguments and sometimes annoy the shit out of each other. But that's normal and it's a part of being in a relationship. Every relationship, whether it's your friends, family or significant others will have it's ups and downs. What's important is finding someone that you are willing to have those downs with.

I couldn't imagine my life without him. After being with someone and spending years of your life with them, they become a part of you. You share special moments and a special bond with them. Certain places, songs, phrases and scents will remind you of them. Having someone that you're proud to call your someone, is special.

Maybe relationships aren't supposed to be how they appear in the movies or in a fairytale story. As much as I would love to believe that life is a romance movie, it isn't. But luckily, I've found someone who makes me feel as though it is.
