"We were instantly attracted to each other and we spent the summer going back and forth between San Diego and Scottsdale, where I lived, to see each other. At the end of the summer, he transferred to Hawaii. I thought I'd never see him again; I was heartbroken." But, love prevailed for these sweethearts, who eventually made their way back to each other.
