"I met my girlfriend when I was living with my parents in Victorville and 20 years old. She used to work at Forever 21 and I worked at a clothing boutique inside the mall. I would often go into Forever 21 to talk to one of my friends during my breaks. She would see me talking to one of her coworkers and would say, 'Oh, you want a job here', just messing around. Then we would talk every now and then. We responded to each other on Facebook. Then one day, randomly, we're on Facebook and I don't know, just out of the blue, she asked me, 'Hey, do you want to go with me to get a tattoo?' I had never talked to her about that and I said, 'Uhh yeeeaah, sure.' So, I went with her and she got a tattoo. I didn't, I don't think I'll ever get a tattoo, but I went with her.
"After that, I told her, 'Hey, my friends are having a party tonight. do you want to come along?' and she said sure but it wasn't for a while so we went to watch a movie and then had Subway. We went to the party and my friends said, 'Oh, who's this?' And I said, 'This is my friend from Mexico and she's here for a visit.' And they asked, 'Oh, how is it in Mexico?' They believed it because she had on chancla but she was wearing them because she didn't think she was going anywhere that night. So, it went on for a while and then we told them, 'No, really she's a friend from here.'
"Ever since that, we've been hanging out every single day. Now we're here and it's been 3 years and 8 months together living in Downey."
