He Told Me He Loved Me A Week Into Dating And Over 2 Years Later Our Relationship Is Just As Passionate
Christine Evangelista

When I met my boyfriend on a Saturday and started dating him that Thursday, people raised their eyebrows.

When, within a week after that, my boyfriend told me he loved me, people raised their eyebrows.

When we chose early on to spend as much time together as possible because we couldn’t stand being away from each other, people raised their eyebrows.

Why is it so common these days for people to jump to conclusions and judge other people’s romantic relationships? Everyone seems to think they know best. They deem whether or not your relationship meets their definition of “healthy”.

Well, newsflash. There is such thing as love at first sight.

I fell in love with my boyfriend the second I laid eyes on him and he fell in love with me. Over two years later, our relationship is just as passionate and real as it was from that very first moment.

My boyfriend and I were both on the same page very early on and knew that we were meant to be together. One of my favorite memories from the beginning of our relationship is something I haven’t gone around telling everyone because I knew it was sure to raise those eyebrows.

A few weeks into dating, my boyfriend told me that if he could get down on one knee right then and there and propose, he would. I would bet everything on the fact that if he had the resources to do so, he just might have.

For some people, when they’ve met “the one”, they just know.

My parents have been my greatest example of this and the reason I have always believed in love at first sight. My parents met for the very first time in December 1989. They were engaged by March. Now, they’re just a couple years away from celebrating their 30th anniversary. I have always been in awe of my parents' lifelong love story.

My boyfriend and I don’t feel like we rushed anything. In fact, we think we took full advantage of every possible moment and memory that was thrown our way without hesitation.

We may have established the level of importance we hold in each other’s lives a little sooner than society would like to deem as acceptable, but contrary to what some people believe, this didn't hinder our relationship in the slightest.

Over two years later, we still look at each other with hearts in our eyes. We still feel the butterflies in our stomachs and we joke about how we both still feel like we have a crush on the other.

My boyfriend is my best friend. I knew from the moment I met him that he is the one who will be waiting for me at the end of the aisle while I walk towards him wearing a white dress.

We decided very early on to be the ones in charge of our relationship. We don't allow anyone or anything else to dictate our romance. In fact, we find it pretty amusing when someone thinks they have a say in how the two of us should run our relationship.

For over two years, we have spent every moment possible together and we still feel like it isn’t enough.

For over two years, we have learned from each other and gotten better because of it.

For over two years, we have accepted each other completely and loved each other unconditionally.

For over two years, we have made our relationship our top priority.

For over two years, people who don’t know us think we’re a new couple because we can’t keep our hands off each other.

For over two years, I have been able to go to sleep every night, no matter my mood, feeling extremely blessed because I know he’s mine and I’m never letting him go.

Like it or not, we fell in love in an instant and we're still madly and crazy in love.

I don’t really care what society has to say. If there’s any true definition out there of what a healthy, loving relationship looks like then I’m confident our relationship is a perfect example.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
