We met in college. We had a class together and I thought he was the most intelligent and attractive guy I had ever come across. It took me an entire semester to talk to him and when I finally did, the bomb dropped - he had a girlfriend. He was planning on moving with her to another state after graduation. A year or so passed and he found me on MySpace and added me as a friend. By that time, things had gone south with his then-girlfriend. He kept inviting me to come visit him and hang out, but I kept declining. I had a horrible self-perception at the time and was totally convinced that he would never like me the way I like him and going to visit him would just hurt my expectations. Another year or so passed and he ended up moving back to our home state. Again, he would invite me out for coffee to catch up, or see his band play, but I always found an excuse not to go because I was afraid of having my feelings hurt. Eventually I mentioned him to my mom in conversation and told her the back story. She actually scolded me for flaking out and ignoring his invites and pretty much demanded that I hang out with him, because not doing so, in her opinion, was being a bad friend. So I sucked it up and arranged to have coffee with him on February 15th. We met for coffee and realized we had a lot more in common than we ever thought. We opted to continue with drinks at a local pub. As the night went on, we started talking about the class we met in. In a moment inspired by liquid courage, I jokingly said with a laugh, "Yeah, I thought you were the hottest guy I had ever seen." He stopped smiling and eyes got really big and he said, "Are you kidding me? I have had a crush on you for the past 3 years." He then started pointing out all of the hints he dropped over the years that had gone completely over my head. We started dating and have been together ever since.
