    Met: beginning of physical therapy school August 2009.  He joined my study group.  We were both dating other people at the time but we became really good friends.

    Dating: September 2016.  We stayed friends all through PT school and afterwards.  He was there when I broke up with my ex fiance 2 months before the wedding as I considered him one of my best friends.  We were never really single at the same time and honestly even though we were close, I never really thought about dating him.

    Then one day that September, he admitted that he had always had feelings for me and asked if we could go on a date.  I was really skeptical because I had dated a couple of guys after breaking up with my ex fiance that didn’t work out, and I was afraid of losing his friendship if things didn’t work out romantically, as it can be really hard to go back to just being friends.

    Something told me to just take that chance and we went out and became a couple that night. smile

    Got engaged: May 2017, yes after only 7 months.

    Married: December 2017

    And I know it sounds cliche, but things are so easy with him!  Once I was able to let my walls down, I realized that we had something special all those years of just being friends and I’m so glad he had the courage to tell me his feelings (he was scared to death I was going to turn him down!)

    I never thought I could be so happy. smile

    I’m a very indecisive person and big decisions/changes have always been hard for me and still are…he has always been my greatest exception to that statement of myself. I guess “when you know, you know” was incredibly true. 🙂
