I met Wesley (officially) my Freshman year of high school. (We live in a small town so I’m sure we had run into each other at least once before). We were both in band and quickly he became one of my best friends. I always knew I could talk to him about anything and he wouldn’t judge me for it, regardless of what the topic was. Throughout high school, we never dated. (Wesley actually dated three of my really good friends while he was in school.) He enlisted into the Texas National Guard his senior year and after he graduated, we lost touch for a while. Other than random Facebook messages, we hardly ever spoke. (As you may or may not know, from the summer between my Junior and Senior year until about the middle of last year, I had been in a relationship with my high school sweetheart. Things were good and then I realized that I was a different person and we just weren’t good together.) Wesley came back into my life shortly after that. We randomly started talking to each other again and things just clicked. We constantly sent each other text messages and the occasional phone calls. I actually told him that I had feelings for him before he told me. But he talked me into actually trying a relationship with him and it has honestly been the best decision I have ever made before. He’s my best friend. I love him with my whole heart.
