My "Jeff Bailey"...

I knew of the infamous "Jeff Bailey" in high school, but we actually met about three years after he graduated during the summer of 2003. I was home from my first semester of college, and we chanced to meet one night through some mutual friends. After that we began to chat over AIM. We talked occasionally, but it wasn't until much later that our relationship began to really develop.

About four months later, when Jeff knew that my relationship with my ex-boyfriend was over, he asked me out on our first date. IT WAS AWFUL! I made up an excuse and went to hang out with my friends. Fortunately, our second date had already been planned. We went to Halloween Horror Nights together and we hit it off.

After a couple of months Jeff officially became my "boyfriend." It was hard in the beginning, and it's still really hard sometimes for us to be apart so much. As time has gone on, we've become a little more used to our situation, but we try to see each other as much as possible.

My Jeff is definitely one of a kind, and he's very special to me. We've been in a long distance relationship now for more than a year, and it's been rough, but well worth it.
