He was short, scrawny, had buck-teeth, and he was flambouyantly geeky

The first time I met him, we were both 14 and his family had just moved to our city from the states. I was dissapointed--most of the young girls in our church congregation had been looking forward hopefully to the arrival of new meat, but what we got was definitly not new meat. He was short, scrawny, had buck-teeth, and he was flambouyantly geeky. However he was likable for all that. I had an inexplicable interest in him and found myself one night at a sleepover asking his stepsister all about him before I realized what I was doing. I had to force myself to stop incase it looked to her like I was interested in him, which I definitly wasn't. When I tried to imagine myself with him, I cringed. He wasn't attractive at all, and he was so geeky. So I put him out of my mind.

later, however, when I was sleeping over at their house once again, his stepsister mentioned something about a crush he had on a girl from his school. An annoying and completly unwarranted wave of jealousy washed over me. I did my best to ignore that, though, and continued on in my life sparing him little-to-no thought.

Years went by and we became better friends. He got braces and his buck teeth dissapeared. He began working out and aquired a very nice body. I found that out of all the boys in church, he was by the far the easiest and most fun to talk to. I found myself going out of my way to talk and joke with him. He thought I was funny--he laughed at my jokes. I admitted to myself that I really did like him a lot, but not in a boyfriend way. Again, when I imagined us together, it made me laugh. There was no way he could be anything but a friend to me.

Then I heard that he had a crush on this other girl in our congregation. Suddenly that old wave of jealously washed over me again, and this time I couldn't ignore it. He was supposed to like me! But nothing ever happened with that other girl; nothing ever happened with any girl. I was in despair of him ever noticing me, though, now that I finally knew my feelings for him. So I kept quiet, but maintained a small hope.

Then it was grade 12. A different boy had asked me to go to prom with him before the school year even started. I wanted to go with you-know-who more than anyone else, but I had no choice but to say yes to this other guy. What if no one else asked me? However, my twin sister, alone aware of my feelings, sneakily brought up the subject of prom to him one night over MSN messenger. And to my exquisite delight and unbelief, he told her that if he was going to go, that he wanted to go with me. ME! i was so excited and happy. The old scrawny, buck-toothed, geeky boy of 14 was now a tall, muscular, good-looking and funny boy of 17, and not only that, but it looked as if he liked me too.

it wasn't long after that where I slyly brought up prom to him myself, claiming that I didn't think I was going to go. (of course I was going to go but he didn't need to know that). He fell for my bait...he insisted that I go. He even suggested that if i wanted i could go with him, and if we didn't want to stay we didn't have to..we could leave early gor for an ice cream or do whatever we wanted! (which was exactly what i wanted to hear) so I said ,'sure'...but he didn't believe me! He said, 'you're joking, right?' and it took me a while to convince him that I really did want to go with him. A few days later he asked me to go out with him...and ever since then we have been together and I have fallen head over heels hard in love with him and he just worships me too, and it is by far the best relationship I have ever been in.
