I Wanna Love Somebody Like You! name is Kristin I just joined the community and decided to introduce myself before I tell our story I'm 18 and Jonathon is 19 we both live in Texas. Jonathon and I first met because he was dating my friend Jessie..yeah I know some of you may be thinking "how could she date her friends ex" but when you hear the whole story you'll understand.

Like I said above, Jonathon and I met through my friend Jessie my junior year. Jonathon and Jessie met at work, and started dating. Jonathon went to live with Jessie. One day he came to our school w/ Jess. Jessie and I had English together, the first time I layed eyes on mi novio the first thing to come into my mind was "wow!". He was so striking, there was just something about him. I later found out that he was thinking the exact same thing. Since he was dating my good friend and I was in a serious relationship nothing could happen between the two of us.

The next time I saw Jonathon he was picking Jessie and I up from school for lunch, once again we both felt this connection but could do nothing because of the circumstances. One night while he was staying w/ Jess I spent the night, and we still both felt pulled towards each other. Pretty soon after that Jessica and Jonathon broke up, so I figuired I would never see Jonathon again. A few months later they got back together again and I thought "ok..nothing is ever gonna happen cause why would she break up w/ such an awesome guy?" Then..obviously they broke up a little while later. That was the end of junior year.

Senior year came and we didn't have any contact. I thought about Jonathon from time to time but never did anything about it since was after all, the ex of one of my best friends. Jessica and I had english together again, and at the end of the year we went to a local college to do research for a paper. Jessie invited Jonathon along, and a year later Jonathon and I still had sparks between the two of us. Soon after that, actually a few days later Jonathon called Jess and asked for my phone number. He called me that night, and it was like we had known each other our entire lives. The next day I asked Jessie if she would mind if Jonathon and I started dating. She told me that she wouldn't mind, and that she thought we would be perfect for each other. Boy was she right!

Jonathon and I talked almost every night for about six weeks, our first date he came over to my house. The ironic thing is that Jessie saw him at the mall and gave him a ride to my place (he didn't have a car at the time) We hung out ordered pizza and then went to the movies, that night we had our first kiss in my drive way. I was supposed to go to my prom with this other guy Rory, but once I started talking with Jonathon I kept wishing that I had never said yes to Rory. Luckily though, I found out that Rory had tried hooking up w/ other girls while we were together and told some of his friends we did stuff that never happened. When I found that out I asked Jonathon if he wanted to go to my prom, and he gladly accepted.

On May 15, 2004 the night of my prom Jonathon came over about 11, we picked up his tux, got Subway and ate it on these boulders that over look this beautiful golf course close to my house. After that we went back to my house and hung out w/ my family until I had to go get my hair done and pick up my corsage and his boutiniere. When we were done w/ that the two of us went back to my house to get ready. When I saw Jonathon in his tux for the first time my heart literally skipped a beat. I know the same happened to Jonathon because of the look in his eyes. We had to go to HEB (a grocery store) cause he needed to get something. It was really fun cause when I was getting out of the car I heard this little 4 year old boy go "wow look mommy" and the mom say, "yes, I know isn't she beautiful?" Jonathon and I had our dinner at TGIF, the entire time I couldn't take my eyes off of him. When we got to the prom location there weren't any more parking spots left so we had to park about 15 blocks away. By then we both had to go to the bathroom really bad cause we had gotten stuck in traffic since the roads were closed down (it was armed forces day and there was a parade). The Hilton was on the way, so we went in there to use the bathroom. It actually worked cause there was another prom going on so all the employees thought we went to that school. We finally got to my prom and had a blast just dancing and hanging out. When there was about 30 minutes left we were sitting at our table just holding each other, then he said "I was going to wait until the last dance, but do you want to be my girl friend?" I said yes of course. The rest of the time we were there anytime one of my friends asked me who my date was I said "Jonathon, he's my boyfriend now!" I felt so priveledged to say that...I never been so proud to be with someone before.

It's been four months since we've been together, and two years since it all started. To this day he's constantly on my mind. I love him with all of my heart and soul, he's my everything. Every time I see him or we speak my heart still skips a beat just like the first time our eyes met. Jonathon and I have a connection that I've never had with anyone else. We're constantly finishing each other's sentences. Or saying the same thing at exactly the same thing, even if it has nothing to do with our conversation. We can both tell exactly what the other is thinking while on the phone just by the tone of the other's voice. He truly is my everything, and I can't get over how lucky I am to have someone as great as him in my life.
