Ryan and I met in an unconventional way. We didn’t see one another at a party, or at the gym. No, We met through social media. Ryan and I had both been accepted into Ithaca College and at the time I was single and looking to finally find my special someone in college.
I was looking through the Ithaca College Facebook page, class of 2016, and stumbled upon one (very cute) guy’s profile. What is now known as stalking someone’s profile is exactly what I did. I looked at his name: Ryan Caroli. He hit the first check mark in my book, He was Italian! As I looked through his tagged pictures, his profile pictures, and his wall posts I knew I wanted to talk to him.
Well, He must have been doing the same thing to my profile because at the SAME exact moment We both messaged one another on Facebook. When We tell people that, They can’t believe it. “It was fate” they’ll say, and I believe them.
We both had not been the “relationship” type (even though we both secretly wanted one) Ryan was aggressive, and knew he wanted me to be only his. In the beginning I was scared. I really liked him, but commitment always made me push people away.
Ryan was the first person I said “I love you” to, and my true first love. He makes me laugh uncontrollably and has been my biggest supporter through the highs and the lows of life. We are now Seniors, and looking back can’t image college without one another. Ryan and I are looking forward to our bright future outside the beautiful campus that first brought us together.
