    I had a crush on him when I first met him in 2008 but at the time he was with his now-ex.  I met him at work while I was doing a seasonal thing, and when I left we didn’t talk for a few years.  In 2009 we had both recently split up with ex’s, and we started talking again.

    A lot of people said we were rushing (some were rude enough to say we were rebounds); he had just broken up with his ex of 5 years, and me with mine of 1 year.  But I found out he’d liked me too when we had first met, and I liked him.

    We talked for a few months, dated, and it became serious a few months later.  It just felt right, and he proposed 8 months later despite other people’s meddling.

    We have been happily married for three years.  Cool
