We met in February of 2018 while we were working at Z'Mariks together. I was immediately drawn to Jill's personality (and she was pretty cute too). She would light up the room as soon as she walked in. Being her supervisor, I was hesitant about talking to her at first. I didn't want to do anything to jeopardize my job or make her uncomfortable. I kept my distance at work, but I still looked forward to the days when we would work together. Jill left to go back home for summer break a few months later. I missed having her around, so I made an excuse to text her. We continued to text back and forth for several weeks until Jill eventually returned to Iowa City for a few days to visit. We spent a lot of time together during those days, and we were officially in a relationship by the time she had to go back home.
