Alyese and Jeremy
how we met
Jeremy and I met in the summer of 2018. We were both starting our journey to become certified teachers. Jeremy had just got a job in Troup County as a Middle School Social Studies Teacher 2 days before we met, and somehow was able to get into the certification program 1 day before we met. He would tell you that it had to be Divine Intervention because he was moving from a small town in South Georgia in order to take this job.
The day we met was unlike any other day that we had experienced. It was the second day of our certification class and we were placed in the same group. There was a strong attraction for one another that we could not explain. He was so cute and funny and I could tell he was different. According to him, the first time he saw me he knew he was going to marry me one day. He would go out of his way to talk to me and was so obvious in his attempts to flirt with me. Our entire class caught on to his intentions very quickly but I was more naive. He would come sit at my table every time we had a break and insert himself into our conversations, and then he would ask if he could come to lunch with us. He was so cute.
We quickly became friends and went to lunch together everyday. I was unsure if we would ever date but he was very persistent. He would use the cheesiest pickup lines that he could find on me at least once a day. They were so funny, cute, and unbelievably cheesy , but I wanted to make it a little more challenging for him, so I told him that I needed him to come up with 5 more pickup lines and if I liked them, I would go on a date with him. He had 5 more pickup lines within 10 minutes. Our first date was to the batting cages and archery range. He played baseball in college so I knew he was going to try to show out. He was so patient and encouraging in teaching me how to hit. He lived up to my expectations when it came to baseball. He was very good. However, once we got to the archery range, I was the one who dominated. It was such a fun and memorable first date. We spent the rest of the night talking and getting to know each other better. Before he left, he asked if he could take me on a second date. I told him that if he could up with 5 more pickup lines, then I would go on a second date with him. He had 5 more pickup lines within minutes of leaving, and I have been dating him ever since.
