“It wasn’t exactly “love at first sight” with him. It was more of having an unexplainable feeling like “Hey, there’s something about you.”
We were formally introduced in mid-2017 at a friend’s birthday party. Since then, we kept quick and casual conversations whenever we happened to see each other, and whenever we were out of town, we would comment on each other’s Instagram Story about our individual travels, or talk about destinations we want to visit. We were both always somewhere else and rarely in the same place.
I knew of him since high school because we came from the same hometown and had the same circle of friends, but we never really hung out. In fact, we were not even aware of each other’s presence! It was only last year when we became single that our friends began to frequently tease us and try to get us to meet up because they thought we’d make a good match, since we shared similar interests and personalities.
To be honest, I never really gave it much thought, until he surprised me with a gift from his latest trip to Greece: a pair of earrings that he said I could use for my next trip. At that time, we weren’t even anything yet, but he was already starting to make thoughtful efforts. Time finally permitted us to consistently see and talk to each other late last year. I already knew how much I really liked this guy because I found him to be as driven, passionate, and adventurous as I am. And it was very rare to find someone you can connect so indescribably with.
Later that year, in December, I had a trip planned with a couple of my friends to Hokkaido, Japan. Without second thought or hesitation, I randomly asked him, “Meet me in Tokyo?”. And he really did!
I always wanted to find someone who I can run the world with. I never thought it was possible - but I did!" - Andie Javelosa
