Valentine’s Special

How I Met Pedroseph 

This is the story of how I met the love of my life; very cheesy, I know. Many people will and have questioned my relationship with Pedro due to the fact I am only 18. They believe that we are too young to know what love is but I couldn't disagree more!

Me and Pedro have been together for over 2 years now. Within those years we have made each other cry, laugh, scream and shout but most importantly we have helped each other become the best people we could possibly be.

How did we meet? 

I met Pedro eight years ago when I was ten. It was during the summer holidays after we had just finished our final years of primary school. We didn't go to the same school, but we had mutual friends who brought us both together. We would meet up almost everyday and do the conventional things kids did when I was that age, well almost.. Us and our friends would hide in the woods and find hollow sticks that were smokable. I guess they were a cheap but unsophisticated alternative to cigarettes. Also, you have to bear in mind, we were very inexperienced so although this probably impacted on our health, we thought we were cool.
So in a nutshell, Mine and Pedro's bond grew through the participation of smoking sticks.

So, as you can imagine we had an awesome summer but like everything else, it came to an end. However, fortunately for us, we had both chosen to go to the same high school. Me and Pedro became very good friends, I mean we had our ups and downs but we still do even now. We actually got so close that we decided to use the label of boyfriend and girlfriend but that lasted a whole two minutes, like all year 7 relationships. Even when we ended our 'relationship' we stayed very good friends however, if you have read my previous post, you will know that I had to move schools which sadly resulted in loss of contact. Obviously this didn't happen straight away. We would always talk on msn (remember that great invention?) but then 'always' turnt to occasionally and then 'occasionally' became rarely. This was a gradual process but it ended with us moving on and so, we stopped talking.

If only this is where the story ended😂😜

How did we reunite?

In June 2014, I entered a shop with my mum to buy a birthday present for one of our family members, only to find that Pedro actually worked there. This was quite a shock because this was the first time in 3 or 4 years I had seen him, but no need to worry, I was really calm and collected. Oh, I wish that were true!! So here's what really happened. I went into the shop completely blind to the fact he was in there until we got up to the counter. When I did notice him and recognised who he was, I completely freaked out! I didn't have any makeup on and in all honestly I looked a complete mess so I decided it would be a good idea to hide behind one of the shelves. By this point he had already spotted me and so I just made myself look like a complete and utter twat. What made this situation even worse what the fact that my mum, as smooth as she is, said "Why are you hiding?" so even if he hadn't noticed me hiding already, he definitely would have by this point. 
Because I am also really smooth (I must have inherited it from her) I went home and then messaged him a couple of days later telling him that I saw him.. Like, as if he didn't already know. This was clearly just an excuse I could find to talk to him again. From there, our relationship grew stronger and we got to know each other again. This was the start of our adult relationship.

What happened next?

Me and Pedro would talk to each other almost every day, however due to past relationships on both sides, we had some rocky experiences. At first, I appeared very uninterested and wasn't really looking for a relationship. In all honestly, I didn't believe that I even liked him any more than a friend. That was until I thought I had lost him! So I had planned to meet Pedro for the first time in years but on the day, I became too anxious and just didn't feel like meeting. So, I cancelled our plans and told him that I didn't think there was ever going to be anything between us and that I was into somebody else. Looking back on it now, I genuinely believe that I was just pushing him away because we were getting too close and I have a habit of pushing when things start to go well. This really hurt Pedro and so we stopped speaking.. again. I don't remember exactly how we started talking again but we did and that is when my feelings really started to grow. We told each other things that no one else knew and would stay up chatting early hours of the mornings. We met up a couple of times and it felt like I had known him for ages! I felt like such a child when I spoke to him. Every time my phone went off and I got a message from him, I would smile before I had even read it. The butterflies he gave me were overwhelming. So things were going great, until I realised that Pedro's ex girlfriend was not so much an ex. 

Pedro's relationship with his ex was very toxic and controlling on her part. He was no angel but she is the devil. I won't sit here and rant and rave about her because she isn't worth the time and quite frankly, it just feels bitchy. However, in order to tell this story, you need to know the facts and for the sake of confidentiality, lets call her Meg. 

Pedro had been in a relationship with Meg on and off for years previous to our relationship. So, of course her jealousy side came out when she heard about me. Normally this is I can sympathise with, however her jealousy played out in her behaviour and felt like she could control Pedro. By this point, we had been speaking all day every day for about 4 months so when she forced Pedro to stop speaking to me, I felt completely broken. Experiencing this feeling made me realise what it must have felt like when I pushed him away first.

How did you end up in a relationship?

After we had both cooled down from a huge arguement that followed these events, Pedro reached out to me again and we spoke everything through. We admitted our mistakes and taught each other to understand why we did what we did. I invited Pedro to stay with me the night and it was one of the best nights of my life; sleeping next to the person I love for the very first time. 

The next day, we went for a walk and talked through our relationship and disclosed our feelings for each other. Pedro wasn't sure how to ask me to be his girlfriend without sounding like a little school boy so instead he said to me "You're my girlfriend now" and I happily agreed. 

Although our relationship didn't start off the smoothest of ways, I wouldn't change any of it for the world. We have fought through every battle we have come across and will continue to do that for the rest of our lives.
