Tell us how you met your husband
Kory and I actually went to middle school and high school together. We knew of each other since middle school but we never talked or anything. We hung out with different crowds in high school and middle school. Finally my senior year we had a class together and we just like flirted, you know the regular. And one day his friend dared him to come up and dared him to hump me in the hallway. And when he did that I was like “Oh my God! What are you doing?” But you know, it was fun. So about six months after I graduated, in 2003, he asked me out and that’s how we started.
Our first date, we went to see “Love Don’t Cost a Thing.”
Oh wow! I remember when that movie came out.
Yes we’re a very funny couple.
When you first met him in middle school, what did you think about him as a person?
Oh my gosh! I was like ‘who is this big head kid.’ I was like ok, he’s cool but he wasn’t anything I was attracted to at all! But as it progressed in high school I guess I liked it.
Did you guys date continuously or were there breakups? Because it’s kind of rare that high school romances last.
We broke up. It was like two years into the relationship because I wasn’t sure exactly what I wanted. He was my first ever, real boyfriend. I had a boyfriend before but this was in middle school and it was nothing serious. So I wanted to venture out and see if I could find something else. But I eventually came back because there was nothing out there. It was just like dating, ok but at the end of the day you want someone to be there for you and understand and commit so I ended up going back to him.
When did you realize he was someone you could spend the rest of your life with?
Once we hit our five year mark, we were kind of going through stuff as far as financial difficulties, moving in together, obstacles with parents and family and I knew if we could face all of this stuff and including other stuff together, death in the family. Then I knew he was the one. Because he’s genuine, he understands me. We’re like one in the same and you don’t come across those types of people too often so when you find love, I think you should stick with it and work through all of your issues.
