Mandy and I went to school together from Pre-k- 10th grade. I never thought growing up that her and I would ever date. She was the cheerleader and I was the athelete. We never saw each other after 10th grade seeing as my family moved due to a parents new job. Well about 6 months ago I ran across Mandy on facebook so I decided to write her a message. That day was July 7th, 2013.

We had a unofficial date on July 11th, 2013. I went to her job and had a few drinks at a bar. After she got off we went to her house and we watched and few movies. After our first date we both wondered when we ever see each other again seeing as if I was going out of town the next day for a basketball tournament in South Carolina. Well guess what I convinced Mandy that she should come to South Carolina and be with me for the weekend and she did. From that moment I knew this was the girl I wanted to be with for the remainder of my life. She supports me so much in everything I do and I show her the same. This woman is the reason I smile.

We both have children of our own, she has a son Kyler and I have a daughter named Laila. Its so fun to have those two around each other. When we are all around its like one big happy family. Mandu and i are still going strong and one day I know she will be my wife.

Our love story seems so surreal at times, I feel as if we have been together for the past 5 years. Not only is she my girlfriend she is my best friend. I trust her and she trust me. Our realtionship is built off honesty, trust and respect.
