JJ and I met during my first week in college. He eventually became one of my best friends -- my constant moral support. Slowly but surely, I began to see him as more. We became a couple on October 18, 2011. Right now, he’s in London studying abroad. Times are tough, and while he’s not perfect, I love him and miss him dearly. I can’t wait for him to come home. I’ve been through rocky relationships, but he tells me I’m worth being loved. Everyone is. He gives me hope and shows me every day what love really means.
