Not a typical love story.
It is not like in the movies. It was not love at first sight. There are too many opposing factors in this story.
I was 21. He was 18. I grew up abroad, he did not. However, we both attended the same college. He was not one of many first friends I had. I did not even notice him. I mean not until he told me he likes me. He was not that good looking. He was not smart but I dated him. But nonetheless, we still became a couple. Secretly, that is.
Our relationship lasted for a few months then we started talking again. No labels but it seemed like we had never broken up. We had a lot of ups and down for three years but we managed to keep it going. Didnt I mention, it wasnt confirmed? NO LABELS.
Fast forward to graduation, I tried ending it with him but he did not want to. We still had the weird relationship we had for two years, on and off thing, no labels. But I knew we loved each other. I am sure of that. Then on his birthday, two years after I left, he told me he has a girlfriend. I was devasted. He didnt even mention anything to me. Not like he had to but still. I felt like he left me hanging.I cried and cried and stopped communicating with him. After a months, he started asking how I was and that made me forget about what he did. I came back, I saw him but he was still in a relationship. He told me he still loves me. I was hopeful he will come back to me. He promised me and even broke up with his current partner. However, it was too good to be true. He already fell in love with her. He felt bad about breaking up with her. He got confused. I left and we never got a chance to talk about things properly.
