Day 3: Your First Love

Brandon and I knew each other in high school.  Our senior year, we went to several of the same functions.  We had a Special Topics in Social Studies class together where we spent most of our class time playing trivia games. 

At our basketball homecoming dance, we danced.  I can't remember how long it was after that, but we went on a double date with his best friend and his girlfriend who wanted us to hookup.  We started dating on March 1, 2001.  Why I remember the date, I don't know. 

We lasted through graduation, the summer, and the biggest part of my first semester at college.  We were young and in love and thought we had it all. 

I was devastated when he decided to join the Army, but thought that we could handle that, as well.  He broke up with me a few days before Christmas.  He didn't want me to have to wait for him. 

We still talked afterwards, still exchanged Christmas gifts, and he wrote while he was in basic training.  Called once.  And that was it. 

Looking back now, I'm glad that he decided he didn't want me to wait for him because look what I got instead!  We are Facebook friends and I'm happy for him.  He's done well.  Now he's a drill sargeant somewhere and has re-enlisted over and over.  I guess its what he was made to do.
