I’ve dated my girlfriend, Yanique, for 3 years now, and we’ve been friends for over 13. We met freshman at Temple University in front of the library. (Super cheesy right?) When we met, I had a girlfriend, so I didn’t look at her in a romantic way at the time, but we hit it off as friends both being from New York City, both of Caribbean descent and sharing a lot of other similarities in personality.
Fast forward to the summer of 2011, after losing contact for a bit, I randomly bumped into Yanique at a mutual friend’s cookout. We caught up, hung out a few times, and realized that our connection as adults was on a different level. We dated, everything fell into place perfectly and we’ve been amazing together ever since. It’s one of those situations where you question why you didn’t make a move sooner, but things happen in their own timing, and I couldn’t have asked for anything better.
