My fiancé' and I are from the same home town, and grew up literally two minutes from each other. We went to the same grade school and high school. He picked me up and drove me to school everyday our Senior year in HS. We never dated in school, but were always really good friends. He liked me back in 8th grade & I liked him once we were Seniors. After high school graduation, I went to college & he went to the service. He was overseas during our 10 year & 20 year class reunions (I just dated myself), so I hadn't physically seen him since we graduated high school. Thank goodness for Facebook because we did reconnect a few years ago. Fast forward to now.... Again, thanks to Facebook, I found out that he was back in the "states". Not only was he in the states, he was actually at home, at his parents' house. It just so happens that I was coming back home for a family event, so I reached out to him via FB to ask how long he'd be there because I wanted to see him since it was 20 years since we last saw each other. I arrived home early one Thursday morning and let him know I landed safely. We texted each other most of the day & planned to meet for breakfast that Friday morning. We spent every day together while I was home. During that brief time I spent at home, we instantly connected, got caught up on each other's lives over the past 20 years, and decided that we would not be apart again. However, I returned home in the South and he was still in the Midwest. Before I left, we had decided that in six months he'd move down South with me. Well, a month later, he was at my door, telling me that he couldn't live without me! So here we are...two people who've known each other since we were 8 years old...liked each other, but never told the other how we felt until some 20 odd years later. It's amazing because neither of us were supposed to be home at the time we were there. He was supposed to be in California, and I was supposed to come home weeks later. But thanks to a last minute change in plans, I went home sooner than originally planned. We can't help but believe that we were destined to be together!
