94.9 KYSS-FM’s “What Were You Thinking” Contest Winner
Congratulations to Jessica Batson, winner of 94.9 KYSS-FM's "What Were You Thinking" contest! We considered Jessica's story to be one of the the craziest things someone has done for love.
Jessica and Cullen are going to Thursday's Dierks Bentley concert at the Adams Center with free tickets in hand. They will also get to meet Dierks in person!
We received a lot of entries in the contest, and believe me, there were some insane stories that were sent in. Thank you to each of you who took the time to tell us your story.
Jessica's winning entry is below.
I was living in Alaska and going thru a rough time in my life. I was finding my friends on Facebook to help me thru it. I sent a request to a guy I knew from my past and he accepted my request on Nov. 19, 2011. He was going thru some similar times and we started talking. He was here in Montana and I in Alaska, and we had been talking for a few weeks when we decided to start dating. We hadn't actually seen each other in over 5 years and life had some how brought us together. On December 27,2011 we started our relationship first on Facebook then thru text and talking on the phone. For three months I would set my alarm for 3:30 AM Alaska time so I could talk to him before he went to work and then make time just after dinner before he went to bed. We made plans for him to come to Alaska to get me and move me back home. Finally on March 31, he flew to Alaska and we saw each other for the first time in 5 years and shared our first kiss. I packed my necessities and we jumped on a plane to move me back to Montana. I will figure out how to get the rest of my stuff here later. I don't ever want to be away from him for that long again. Crazy to say "I love you" to a man you haven't seen in years and had not yet kissed. I think we deserve tickets for the crazy things we have done for love.
