One thing I am sick of hearing being directed towards me is the question “Why are you with your boyfriend so much?” Well I will tell you. Me and my boyfriend have been inseparable since 11th grade. We came to college together and are each others best friends. When I say best friends I don’t mean it in the cliche relationship meaning. Airik and I are not like a typical relationship. Starting out as friends, we already knew everything there was to know about each other. He met my mom and I already met his parents before we were dating. Airik and I are known to do everything together. Of course, every once in a while we get sick of each other… maybe more than every once in a while but he’s the one person I can yell at and 5 seconds later we are talking about something completely random and right back to what we were. He is the one person that can make me laugh after a horrible day and make me feel like everything is going to be okay. His arms feel like home. I could go on with the sappy stuff but quite frankly this isn’t about how much I love him, which everyone knows is with everything I have, but to address the lingering question above. Why do I spend so much time with him? Because simply, I can. I don’t ask any questions on what someone else does with their lives, so, if I’m not asking you about your lifestyle I expect the same back. I love my boyfriend and it is necessary for me to spend as much time as I want with him and when I want to.
