Jaime and Alysha met during the 1999-2000 school year: her sophomore year and his junior year. He asked her to go to the homecoming dance with him, and Alysha said yes. A few days later, however, Jaime canceled because of a conflict with family plans. By the time he realized that the dance and the family event were on different days, Alysha had already accepted another date.

Not too long after that, Jaime called Alysha and asked if she would go to a movie with him. Her parents wouldn’t allow her to see the movie he had chosen, but because of miscommunication, Jaime was under the impression that she wasn’t allowed to date at all. He began seeing another girl shortly after.

However, in spring, Jaime handed Alysha a piece of paper filled with the words “I love you.” That was the beginning of their relationship. From February 24, 2000, to the end of that school year, Jaime and Alysha were happily and madly in love.

Unfortunately, circumstances outside their control broke them apart, but they never actually broke up. They went their separate ways, occasionally crossing paths, but never anything beyond passing hellos and general friendliness. Until, August 20, 2008… Jaime sent Alysha an email.

That was a new beginning for their friendship. They talked about everything, from family to music, about the future and the past, her failed relationships, and his failing marriage. Alysha would give Jaime a girl’s perspective on problems with his ex-wife to help them work things out. Jaime gave Alysha confidence to try a new relationship after all the heartbreak she’d been through. Eventually, Jaime and Alysha’s relationship grew stronger; they became best friends and started speaking more frequently on the phone and then started hanging out on a regular basis. He would even surprise her with “sneak attacks” on AIM when he was at work.

In July of 2009, after two years of trying to salvage his marriage, Jaime had finally decided that it was better for him and his ex-wife to go their separate ways. Shortly after he moved out and was separated from his ex-wife, Jaime and Alysha started dating again. It was obvious to everyone that they were meant to be together and always had been.
