Tavaras and I had met while we were in college. I was attending post secondary at a community college where he had been accepted to play football. Me being the football but I am I clicked well with some of the football team that I had attended classes with. I went to the football games to show my support. After the games I would go out to eat and hang out with some of the team.
After graduation I had joined the military and didn’t go back to college.That next year even though I didn’t attend school, Tavaras had remembered me from the football parties and added me on Facebook. We started catching up over Facebook chat and agreed to catch up in person. We started hanging out and just had amazing chemistry. We continued hanging out every day and every night. I would literally go to work and go back to his house. We continued this for 3 months until our paths separated. I went to annual training and he went back home to Kentucky. He stayed there and I continued life in Minnesota. We stopped talking but, remained friends on Facebook and I found myself checking in on him to see if he was well.
After 2.5 years and failed relationships for both of us I finally got the courage to message him and let him know I never stopped caring about him! He replied. Tavaras told me he had told his cousin a few days prior he was going to remain single until he was 40 unless I came back into his life and that he never stopped caring about me either.
I was so happy I started crying and right then and there we declared we were each others. I decided that next week I was driving down to Kentucky to rekindle everything with him. As soon as I saw him my heart melted and it was like we never were away from each other.
I now drive down to Kentucky every other week to see him. We are looking at places for us to move in together when I move down there July of this year.
We are extremely grateful that our separate life paths that had once crossed have now joined as one!
We are so excited to spend the rest of our lives together as one!
Tavaras & Autumn’s fairytale!
