Doesn’t this photo just look regal? Anyway, our couple today is a case of assumptions-gone-wrong but fortunately, they had another chance to remake it thus all is right in the world. When Jessica & Garrett first met each other, they thought they were out of each other’s league. They believed that all they could have with was just friendship. Neither did they know that they were actually into one another but no one dared say anything. But there’s no point in trying to regret about all the lost times before they ended up together, what’s important now is that our couple somehow found a way to be together… to be soulmates. Besides, they have the rest of their lives to make up for everything!
Congratulations Jessica & Garrett!
They met in college, and both liked each other immediately— and also both thought the other “out of their league.” They were good friends, but never anything more, passing each other around campus, sharing “inside joke” greetings, and always wishing they could share what was really in their hearts. But they never did. Graduation came, and they said goodbye, and moved to different parts of the country— Garrett to Indiana, Jessica back home to Virginia. They kept up with each other on Facebook, through grad school and nursing school, always wishing for a reason to nurture that friendship, that seemed every more distant, into love…
… then one day, Garrett popped up in Facebook chat: “Hello, Jessica.” Her heart leapt into her throat, and she began to dream of him again. A few weeks passed, and random chats turned into hours of conversations on phone and Skype, and then the sweet revelation that they both had cared for each other since first meeting, almost seven years before. It didn’t take long for Garrett to decide to move closer to her and start dating in person. They were engaged a few months later, and married a few months after that. “He’s always been the man for me,” Jessica told me when we first talked, “I just never dreamed that Garrett Myers would ever think of me that way… and it turns out, he thought the same thing about me!”
Love is a partnership of two unique people who bring out the very best in each other, and who know that even though they are wonderful as individuals, they are even better together. -Barbara Cage
