It’s incredible what dating your best friend can do. We knew everything about each other – the good, the bad, and the ugly. You know how, when you first start dating, you try to keep the crazy away? Well, Superman knew all the crazy that was me – and same goes for him.
We’d been dating about four months when he called me one day and said he had run into his ex (shock and surprise, as we went to the same college and attended BCM). Before I go any further, though, I want to say that what happened in the past is the past. I have no animosity for L by ANY means – she’s a sweet girl, and I wish her nothing but the best in life. But, she IS part of this story, and not all of the memories I have are fond.
L caught up with Superman that rainy day and wanted to talk with him. She and her boyfriend (whom she had left Superman for) had just broken up, and she wanted Superman back (I mean, who wouldn’t? He is Superman after all). I was INFURIATED. How dare she go behind my back and try to steal MY boyfriend? I’m a redhead, guys. When I get mad, I get M.A.D.
But Superman handled it so perfectly.
“I haven’t closed the book on us,” she told him.
“Well, I have,” he replied.
“What if God wants us to get back together?” she asked.
“God would have to physically slam the 10 Commandments over my head and physically tell me I was supposed to be with you – and I don’t think that He wants that,” Superman responded.
Yeah. That really happened. Superman may have taken the analogy a bit overboard, but I think she got the point.
Superman loved me.
He had purchased my engagement ring, and, before long, we started planning a September wedding.
But the families had to get together first.
