Haha, it was kinda boring, though, we met in high school. We were friends-of-friends and then had a class together and were instant BFFs. Then at the time she had a boyfriend, and he and I actually wound up being pretty good friends, but a couple years later he discovered alcohol and morphed into a gigantic asshole.
I figured out that I liked her “romantic stylez” probably about a year before her boyfriend turned into a dick but just didn’t say anything. Then Dickhead Supreme figured it out and got jealous of me (why??? They were still dating at the time? And if she liked me better it was only his own fault, LOL) and then after they broke up, he blackmailed me into telling her (an “if you don’t tell her I will” situation)
Which turned out kind of funny because I basically blurted out “You know how I’ve been acting really weird, well, I like you romantic stylez” and Amanda said “Oh. Okay.” and then I don’t remember what exactly but it was something very not traumatizing, like, “So, are we still going to go catch a movie?”
Then I graduated college a year before her and drove back to our college town every other weekend to spend with her and when she graduated we got an apartment together and lived happily ever after, ~not the end~
