It's going to take a while to explain what got me to this point. Of course, it begins, revolves around, and ends with a guy.
We'll say his name is Mike. I met him for the first time at the end of June 2010. I had a boyfriend at the time, We'll say his name is John. I had been hanging out with John in his hometown and my sister, we'll call her Kelsey, picked me up around 9 pm. We stopped for food at Sheetz and Mike was there with his friends: Doug, Nathan, and Craig. My sister knew them so we talked to them for a little and then we all got in Mikes car to go jump it. I was excited because I'm sort of an adrenaline junkie, and it was intense. I didn't see how fast we were going, but Mike said it was around 100-110 mph. We didn't wreck or anything and it was fine. We arrived back to Sheetz in one piece and talked for a little bit more. Mike was hanging out with my sisters friend, Brittany, which is how he knew my sister whom was also hanging out with his cousin. I thought he was so good looking, but I also thought Craig was cute, too. So I got Mikes number out of my sisters phone and texted him something weird to freak him out a little bit, he eventually figured out it was me and I told him to give Craig my number. He did and he also kept my number. He texted me that night to make sure I made it home okay and then we didn't talk for a few weeks.
Mike worked at a gas station/food stop in my town (Minit Mart) so I saw him frequently. I ended things with John a week after we jumped the car, because I was really starting to like Craig. We talked every day for a month, but eventually just kind of stopped. I think I got annoyed with him and he liked another girl so it was for the better. While we were still talking, Mike would text me occasionally when he was on night shift at the Minit Mart, and ask me to come hang out while he worked. I still thought he was beautiful so I would always sneak out and chill with him for a few hours in the middle of the night. We talked about Craig and Mike would tease me and we just seemed like friends. I never thought he would ever want anything to do with me, so I just hid the fact that I was attracted to him.
On August 27, 2010 Mike texted me and asked if I would want to hang out. He picked me up, met my mom and stepdad, and we went to sheetz for food. He dropped me off after like two hours of hanging out. We hung out the next day with my friend, Brooke, and the day after that. I started my junior year on August 30, and we were hanging out pretty much every day. We would play this game while texting; "the question game" where I would ask a question and he had to answer it truthfully. Then he would ask a question and I had to answer it truthfully. Eventually He asked if I liked him. There was no way out of it so I went for it and told him I did. He said he liked me too. He still hadn't kissed me or anything even though we were hanging out almost everyday. And then on September 8, 2010 we hung out and walked around my town and he asked me to be his girlfriend on the bridge outside my house. I said yes and he kissed me. Finally! I was so excited because I had never liked any of my past boyfriends as much as I liked him.
