As I lay here listening to frozen rain come down I figured it would be a good time to tell you about how Jeremy and I met, etc.
Jeremy and I met online originally on meetme.com. We were both griping about our exes. We had both very recently come out of horrible relationships. He had an ex wife from hell and I had an ex that lied about everything including his job, marriage, and family. We started talking in October, 2012 and used each other as venting buddies. At the time I lived in Wilmington but was in the process of moving back to my dad’s house in Chapel Hill. Jeremy lived in Jacksonville about an hour away. We didn’t actually meet until January 3rd, 2013. My paranormal team in Wilmington was starting to look for new team members and Jeremy was interested in learning more about it. Since I was living in Chapel Hill at the time, Jeremy offered to let me stay at his house and then we could drive to Wilmington together for the paranormal stuff. I stayed with him for the weekend and we really hit it off. We clicked like I hadn’t clicked with someone before. After that I came down at least every other weekend. By March, since I was having trouble finding work in Chapel Hill, Jeremy convinced me to try applying for jobs in Jacksonville. I ended up being hired very quickly. The original plan was for me to stay with him until I found a place of my own. Two years later and we are still living together.
We may have rushed things in the beginning but at the time it worked out. In the beginning, we were both still dealing with a lot of drama from our exes, his mostly in a courtroom and mine mostly on television, but because we were in each other’s lives we could rely on each other. Before we were venting buddies and dating, we were both withdrawing from friends and become depressed. We saved each other and built a relationship that could withstand anything. In the past two years we have seen each other at our best and worst, we have had health scares and job scares but we never lost each other or stopped supporting each other. We have only ever fought once and that fight was actually about us being together then or waiting until everything died down with his career since his higher ups weren’t happy with him having a girlfriend all of the sudden. His higher ups now know me and approve me.
Our relationship isn’t typical and it isn’t everyone’s cup of tea but it works for us and we are happy. That’s all that really matters.
