My Boyfriend - Personal Narrative
I went through an inner journey when I met my boyfriend of 7 months.
Meeting him completely changed the way I look at life and what I want
to do with my life.
I went through a period of my life where I was depressed and angry. I
wasn't connecting with any of my friends; my mum was stressed and
angry, family life was horrible. I felt like I didn't belong anywhere.
No-one had the same feelings as me, or felt the same things as me. I
didn't know what to do.
Awhile later I started going on the Internet. Our family had just
gotten ADSL Internet connection with iinet. I found out about an
online multiplayer shooting game called "counter strike". This game
was the most fun I'd had in a long time. I had been playing counter
strike for about 3 or 4 months, when a guy in the same server as me
started talking to me. He asked me "asl? (age/sex/location)". I wasn't
going to answer him because I absolutely hated that question. I
thought, what the hell, I'll just answer him. We started talking more
and more. He asked me if I wanted to trail for *N.F.i*, which is a
counter strike clan. I couldn't believe he actually wanted me in his
clan. I had only been playing for 3-4 months and my skills where
sloppy. I ended up giving him my msn (chat) address. We started
talking on there. It was amazing we were like the same person. We
liked the same things; thought the same, everything was perfect. I
couldn't believe the way we connected. Then I gave him my home phone
number. He called me and we talked for hours on the phone. We started
talking every night on the phone. At first on the home phone but we
soon worked out that it costed too much because he lived in Sydney and
I lived in Shellharbour. We exchanged mobile numbers. Except he was
with Vodafone plan and I was with Optus pre-paid. He said he gets free
time after 7 at night with vodafone to vodafone. I asked my sister if
I could borrow her phone to talk to him for free. She let me. I was so
We talked for about 2 weeks until one night he asked me to be his
