We met in theatre camp the summer before my freshman year. We were friends but didn't get that close. He said that he "didn't hang out with people outside of school" (which was true at the time). The following year we met at theatre camp again, hung out, and eventually became best friends. We were best friends for almost a year, all the while I was falling in love with him.
Then one day he asked me to prom (as friends of course). I was ecstatic, even though he made it clear it wasn't a date. But while we were there, something changed. We slow danced to "Thinking Out Loud" and we flirted a bit, I even put my head on his shoulder. At the end of the night, we confessed that we liked each other and started dating.
We've been together for about a year now, and we are completely in love and happy. He's the sweetest person I've ever met and he's very kind and old fashioned. He even holds the door open for me and calls me "my love", "beloved", and "angel". I'm never happier than when I'm with him.
The problem is that he's a senior and I'm a junior. He's going off to college at the end of this school year while I will still be in our hometown going to high school. On top of that, he has Asperger's which makes it hard for him to communicate sometimes, which will make things even more difficult. A lot of people (including his mom) think that we won't be able to handle the long distance, and that we should break up, but we refuse.
I think that the Bond Touch bracelet would make it a bit more bearable for us to be apart from each other. It would be nice to know that he was thinking of me and I of him. He's my favorite person on the planet and I'm going to miss him so much when he's gone. Feeling his touch every now and then would mean the world to me. Thank you so much for creating something like this, I don't think there is any other going away gift that would be nearly as meaningful or long lasting. This might be able to give me just a bit of the happiness I feel when I'm with him. :)
