October 22, 2011. It was set in stone three years ago. It was a date that I looked forward to every single day.

I met Wayne in January 2007. We worked together, and essentially he was my boss. The first thing I noticed when he walked into the room is that it was January 3 and he was proudly wearing shorts.

Then I noticed really noticed him, and noticed his personality. You could tell he was the cool guy at work. Everyone liked him and looked up to him. He was a decent guy.

Then we started talking, then started flirting. Then comes dating.

The first weekend he came to visit me in Mansfield


Dating him was difficult, I was living in Pennsylvania and he was in Buffalo. It was to far of a distance, and came to the conclusion that maybe we weren’t ready to be with each other. We both felt that maybe one day we would be together.

I mean, we did get a Tarot cards read- said we would break up and find each other again- Then have a lifetime of happiness. Once the cards were dealt we decided to see if we could make it happen.

In August of 2008 I was getting ready to head back to school. We decided to give the summer a try but by the time August rolled around, we knew what would come. I told him I felt like we should be together just not now. So we decided to place a date on the calendar.

October 22, 2011 in the Wegmans parking lot where I first told him I loved him (I know, sounds weird at first but before I told him, I took him to the beach to tell him but chickened out. I was so upset I didn’t tell him so when I left his house crying I pulled into the lot and made him come get me) at 7:00 in the same spot where we said we loved each other first. We wanted to make a date so we would “run back into each other at some point”. n72302550_30383505_1977

When we broke up, we stopped talking for the longest time. Finally in January 2010 we got in contact with each other. It was an on and off contact because we both were in different relationships. We stopped talking after seeing each other and just thought we’d see each other in October 2011.

Stacy’s Wedding, May 2011


For New Years Eve 2011, I was in Lancaster, PA with my ex. I was thinking of moving down there but had this nagging feeling. I knew I wouldn’t have made friends, find a job, or be happy. I felt terrible for thinking this, but as soon as it was midnight and finally 2011- the first person I thought about was Wayne. I immediately messaged our mutual friend (Wayne’s best friend, Megan) to grab dinner. I would keep in touch with Meg so I could stay in contact with Wayne.

As soon as I walked in to see Meg, she told me Wayne moved back to Rochester. I kept telling her it’s over, I won’t see him again. Then that night I had a dream about seeing him. I kept thinking about it over and over again. I finally made the choice after sitting in the Wegmans parking lot for 2 hours to call him.

He answered, he said yes to drinks. And then I saw him- every. single. day. after that.

October 22, 2011 was still looming in the air and we both said we wanted to meet up. We had to- we promised that we would, and the only reason we would show up is simply because we knew we wanted to spend forever together.

To be continued Smile
