There was something so cosmically perfect about finding someone who i loved who also happened to have the same name that it seemed silly to give that up, even as we started fighting more.
Is it ok to date someone with the same name
Think sharing the same first name as my boyfriend also blinded me to some of the problems we were having in our relationship.
Is it weird dating someone with the same name
Sharing a first name wasnt reason enough to stay with someone forever, especially if nothing else worked.
Over the years, ive gotten used to compliments from strangers or new acquaintances about how pretty my name is, or how the person has never met a maxine before.
To solve this constant confusion, his friends took to calling me xine, the second half of my name, since the first half was already taken by my boyfriend.
I remember telling my friends that the guy i had been seeing was named max, and getting coos of approval.
In college i had a girlfriend named maxine, and i couldnt just ignore this second lightening strike.
