We have been best friend since 7th grade but started dating almost 6 years ago and have been engaged for almost a year. 26 years of friendship and he is now the love of my life. It just took a bad really bad relationship to show me who truly loved me all along.
We went to the same high school. I was actually dating his best friend in my freshman year. A few years later we starting dating. We were dating for a couple years, but he was a grade year above me, and when he went off to college we split up. Then 2 years later we starting dating again and have been living together for the last 3 years! Last August he finally proposed!!
4.5 years, 5 in January I interviewed at a dealership he worked at, he saw me through the window and after the interview was done he told the manager to "hire her, and hire her now". After a few months of refusing to date him, I finally agreed and he took me to the coast and told me "I just don't want to feel like we missed out on something with us, I don't want to regret not trying this out". The words still bring tears to my eyes, I'm glad he persisted
We've been together over 5 years! Started dating February 11, 2014 (about a week and a half after we met). We got engaged about a week before our 5-year anniversary. Only 38 days (!) until we're married.
We’ve been together three years, one of those engaged. We were friends for a few years before we started dating. He had to work hard to convince me to give him a chance, and I only did to prove him wrong! He knows that, and we both find the humor in it!
Myself and my fiancé have found each other later on life. It’s so funny because I came across a meme saying you only get 3 true people you were in love with in your lifetime. “1. First Love- This Love often happens at a young age...You eventually grow apart or call it quits over silly things. When you get older you may look back and think it isn’t love. But the truth is, it was. It was love for what you knew love to be.”
2. Second Love- The hard one. You get hurt in this one. This love teaches us a lesson and makes us stronger. This love includes great pain, lies, betrayal, abuse, drama and damage. But this is the one where we grow. We realize what we love about love and what we don’t love about love. Now we know the difference between good and bad humans. Now we become closed, careful, cautious and considerate. We know exactly what we want and don’t want.
3. Third Love- This one comes blindly. No warning. It creeps on you silently. You don’t go looking for this love... it comes to you. You can put up ANY wall you want, it will be broke down. You’ll find yourself caring about that person without trying. They look nothing like your usual crush types, but you get lost in their eyes daily. You see beauty in their imperfections. You hide nothing from them. You want marriage and a family with them. You thank the universe for them and you truly love them.
My 3rd and finally love found me! I can’t wait to say I Do. #shewannaMURRAYme2020 💍❤️
