1. 8 years ago, my friend had his cousin text me.
  2. This cousin remained anonymous, and tried to inform me about his sex addiction.
    I was in 6th grade, people.
  3. I played it cool, knowing that this was probably a boy my age punking me.
  4. Then, my friend invited me to meet him and this cousin at the tennis court in our neighborhood.
  5. I went, stayed on one end while they stay on the other, but noticed this red haired lanky boy and knew instantly the whole thing had been a joke.
  6. After that, we began texting constantly about anything and everything. He was (and is) my best friend.
  7. In 9th grade, we started to date.
  8. We dated for 11-12 months.
  9. In true high school fashion, we broke up and I began to date jerks.
  10. Then, my senior year of high school, we found our way back together again.
  11. We've been together ever since.
    My, how far we've come.
  12. And yes, we never tell people that's how we met. We always say we met through his cousin, which is true, but not the whole story. 😉
