military man

One day I was browsing the Explore section on Instagram, out of boredom, and came across Jason’s page. He quickly caught my eye because he was beautiful! I mean, he had a perfect bone structure, and was tall, dark, and handsome. 

Based on his photos I could tell that he was in the military, and was somewhere in another country. Even though I didn’t know him, I still followed him, and was shocked when he followed me back seconds later. The follow back was then followed up with a Direct Message. 

He sent me a message saying that he thought I was gorgeous, and put the smiley face with hearts as eyes. I was so shocked, because I thought he was gorgeous! After I composed my butterflies, I then replied and said thanks, and the rest was history.

Jason and I would talk daily for hours at a time via direct message. I found out that he was currently stationed in Kuwait, so there was a 10 hour time difference. Usually when I would be in bed he would be up at work or vice versa. That didn’t stop our constant communication, and before I knew it I was telling my friends about him.

They all though I was crazy at first because I was spending so much time talking to a man I met on Instagram, who didn’t even live in my city, but I didn’t care. It was just that we had this magnetic chemistry with each other, even though we had never even talked in person, just messages and FaceTime a couple times.

One day, he Facetimed me and had a huge grin on his face the whole time. Finally, I asked him what was up because it seemed like he was up to something, and that’s when he told me that he was coming to NC, and would like to see me during his visit.

I couldn’t believe it! I was so happy! I spent the whole week leading up to it making sure that my hair was freshly done, nails done, and I even bought a cute new outfit. I wanted everything to be perfect for our first official meeting/date.

When the day finally arrived, I drove to the airport that morning to wait for him, because he was going to stay with me for that day and then go see his family later that evening. I was a bit nervous that maybe he wouldn’t look like the same in person, or that it would be totally awkward, but as soon as we made eye contact and he got into the car he kissed me, and all of those feelings of uncertainty vanished.

This was about 5 years ago, and sadly Jason and I have went our separate ways, but we dated for about 2 years, and still check up on each other occasionally to this day.
