James are I both grew up in Milford. And, Milford being a small town, it’s hard to say when exactly we first met. It was kind of one of those things where you know the name, but don’t really know the person. We have a photo from the Milford newspaper of both of us at the Public Library as 2 year olds. He came with his best friend to my graduation party, where we were briefly introduced, but went on our separate ways. A couple years later he sent me a friend request on facebook, and that’s really where it started. We would message back and forth, mostly just joking about random things, and I’d ask him computer related questions (why he didn’t block me for that, I don’t know!). We exchanged phone numbers so that we could talk more (this was before we had facebook on our “dumb” cellphones), and began texting almost every day. June, 25th, 2011 we finally got to meet each other in person for the “first” time. We went to a party a mutual friend was having. Then we hung out the next day, and then the next weekend, and the next, and the one after that, and we’ve just kind of kept that up for 6 years now.
