Our Love Story {Part 10}

If you are new here, I’m re-telling the story of how my fiance and I met. Here’s what you’ve missed::

Now that we were a few months into dating long-distance, the time apart was becoming harder. At times there was a physical ache being away from him. I longed to be with him and always counted down the days until I got to see him again.

I flew to Greenville mid-September to see Aaron. That weekend Clemson was playing Furman. One of my blog friends I had met at a blog conference that summer had season tickets to all the Clemson games but couldn’t go to this particular game. So we were the lucky recipients of 4 tickets that weekend. Aaron and I went, along with two of his friends. Aaron went to Furman for undergrad so I thought it was sort of fun that our alma maters were playing each other.

We walked around campus before the game, me pointing out the various dorms I lived in or buildings I had classes in. It was fun for me to show him part of my college life. I had so much fun at the game and being back on campus and I think it made him happy to see me so happy.

I don’t remember much about the rest of the weekend. I remember having fun and remember being sad Sunday morning to leave that afternoon.

As we approached the airport that Sunday afternoon {September 16th to be exact}, he began to tell me something. He said he didn’t want to make things awkward and didn’t want to say this on the way to the airport. He began telling me about how much fun he had been having getting to know me and how special of a girl I was. Was he breaking up with me?

He said he didn’t want this to be awkward and said he enjoyed getting to know me, implying maybe he wasn’t interested in moving forward.

My heart began to beat super fast and I remember asking him, ‘what are you trying to say?’ He kept talking but all I could think about was not seeing him again and feeling upset.

At one point during the conversation he did say he had fallen in love with me. Somehow that was lost on me in my moment of panic.

He dropped me off at the airport and I still didn’t really understand what had happened. He never really officially put an end to things but somehow I felt unsettled.

As he pulled away and I walked into the airport, it suddenly hit me. He was trying to say he loved me. He said he loved me and I didn’t say anything back!

I was so upset and immediately called him. I told him that I just realized he said he loved me and I didn’t say anything back. I told him that I loved him too and how sorry I was that I didn’t tell him before he left. I told him I thought he was breaking up with me and didn’t realize he was just trying to say he loved me.

As I boarded the plane, I couldn’t wipe the silly grin off my face. We were in love. It felt amazing and made leaving Greenville even harder. I hated that I couldn’t see him on a regular basis. It would be so much easier to live in the same city. Moving to Greenville began to consume my thoughts.

Before that could happen, I had to experience being even further away from him though.
