I Illustrated The 15-Year-Long Period Of My Life When I Met, Fell In Love With, And Married The Love Of My Life

I usually draw funny comics about the things I experience with my toddler so that he can look back on them in the future. But I also want him to know the true story of how I met his mother, which I finally got around to drawing.

When I was 12, I met a girl named Tina. We were both in 8th grade and attending a school in Beijing, China. While it would be true to say fifteen years later, I married my childhood friend and middle school sweetheart, it would also be misleading because what true love story is ever that simple?

We never actually even dated at any point during the first fourteen years – we had some close calls, but life always intervened. Through it all, we stayed in touch by writing letters to each other, and between us, we accumulated five shoeboxes worth of letters that probably should never see the light of day.

I’ve never been one to believe in the idea of soulmates, but I have to say, waking up every morning next to my wife makes me wonder whether I’m wrong. So perhaps this isn’t a webcomic about a love story per se, but rather a story of my life and about Tina’s persistence and sheer awesomeness. Never give up on what you love… sometimes it just takes a while!
