    @Ms.Teddy: Same for me! He was actually in the final stages of breaking up with his girlfriend of 2 years when he met me. We went out for my birthday and a few months later we were officially an item!

    I was VERY casually dating someone. It wasn’t really serious and we also knew that it wasn’t going to last. I knew I wanted to be with Fiance and as soon as we started hanging out more I broke things off with my other Boyfriend or Best Friend. Fiance and I started dating 2 weeks later.

    Fiance was completely single. He only had one 2 week Girlfriend a few years before he met me. Luckily for me he was very focused on playing college baseball.

    I had a “casual” relationship with a guy when I first met my Fiance, and Fiance at the time was sorta/kinda talking to his ex.  Then Fiance swept me off my feet and I think we both realized we deserved a real relationship!

    I had been casually dating a guy who had been one of my best friends when I met my husband. Since it was casual dating with no real plans for the future and it didn’t seem my friend was all that interested, I started dating Mr. Symphony. I knew from the start he had everything I was looking for. That’s when it got messy, apparently friend WAS interested, but it all worked out, because it turns out he was more interested in my sister anyways. 🙂

    No regrets here!

    I had been single for about 3 months before we met, but my Love was in a relationship, but it was at the end of a bitter breakup.. It bothered me at first because I felt like a rebound, but we are happier than ever! 🙂 Just depends on the situation, I suppose?

    I was actually engaged when I met my now Fiance.  It sounds terrible… but the night I met him my ex Fiance cheated on me with some random girl he met at the bar that night (I was at the bar WITH my ex.)  I was angry and vengeful so I saw a cute guy at the bar and started making eyes at him. lol  Needless to say he came over and we ended up talking the rest of the night but when it was time to leave I left with my ex and we went to an afterparty (with the girl) and when I decided it was time to leave my ex stayed.  And the rest is history.

    Little did I know I had made a very valuable friend that night who was recently divorced because of her cheating on him.  We bonded over that very quickly and took our relationship a little too far, but we can’t change the past.  Even though it took me seven months to actually leave my ex, my Fiance was there for me through it all, he became by best friend and gave me the courage to leave.

    It sounds bad, but the night I left my ex is the night my Fiance and I officially became boyfriend and girlfriend.

    I was single and had given up looking but I had just started a new job and I saw a guy that I thought was cute, but he was in a relationship and I’m the farthest thing from a homewrecker and standing beside him was my now Fiance. Haha I think I made the right decision(;
