But through conversations and few awkward moments later they came to understand each other and now consider each other to be life partners. From a shaky start to now dating for over two years, going on three, the couple has come a long way and they are stronger moving forward because of all the trials and tribulations.
Samuel Cosmi Girlfriend – Dating Blair Westerlund for Over 2 Years in 2021
Samuel Cosmi is currently dating his girlfriend Blair Westerlund in 2021. They first met in 2018 when both of them attended the University of Texas. Both were student athletes, he played football for the Longhorns while she was recruited to play volleyball. She was following in the footsteps of her father who is also a Texas alumni.
The couple met for the first time in 2018 and they started dating on 3 September of the same year. The announcement of their relationship came from Blair on her Instagram page when she shared a picture of the duo kissing. She captioned the picture, “I can’t tell you much about HIS315… but I can tell you about the boy who sat next to me.”
On their one year anniversary Samuel wrote of his girlfriend, “One year with this beautiful girl! Blair, you have brought so much joy into my life. You have one of the most selfless, caring and loving hearts. You make me want to be a better man. I’m seriously the luckiest guy in the world. I love you, babe. Thank you for being you because you are truly amazing. Happy 1 year♥️.”
Initial Growing Pains of their Relationship
While couple may have shown their happy selves on social media, the relationship initially was on the rocks. Samuel’s girlfriend Blair was dealing with anxiety issues and she also had periodic panic attacks, and for Sam who did not believe in anxiety and though it was just in people’s heads, the issues were difficult to deal with at first.
Blair wrote in her mental health blog about the growing pains of their relationship. She wrote, “I couldn’t keep saying I was busy when I was really anxious. Sam grew up differently than I did. He didn’t know people who struggled with anxiety, so when I told him I knew it wouldn’t be an easy conversation.” Samuel wanted to understand and it took time but he felt what it was like for her through listening and trying to comprehend how she was feeling.
“Many people have the mindset (like me) that it’s fake. Now that I have a better understanding, I see that it’s real and people do struggle from anxiety. I still have a lot of learning to do, and I’m still trying to get a better understanding. However, I have an open mind, and always here for support,” he contributed to the post.
That understanding brought their relationship to where it is today. Even as he prepares to go to the NFL and she has her life in Texas, a job as Registered Behavior Technician, the change in scenario and distance will probably not hinder their relationship. Samuel Cosmi and his girlfriend Blair Westerlund are looking to spend their lives together and this is all part of it.
