    Neither actuallly. Our relationship seemed to be the natural outgrowth of our friendship.

    With the FH, we were like MissHobbit, our relationship grew out of friendship.

    I would say I was the predator, but only because Fiance had a girlfriend when we met. They broke up very soon after, and then it was pretty much a mutual chase/natural progression.

    Darling Husband and I sort of ran into each other sideways. He moved in with me after a bad breakup (I was roommates with some old friends of his) and we were pretty much attached at the hip from then on…neither of us really pursued the other, we just fell into each other. 

    As for past relationships, though, I was most often the “prey”. Unless I was drunk and made a move. I’m quite shy.

    A little of both.

    I was ending an abusive relationship when I met my partner, and we both pursued each other at times.

    Well if you asked SO he would say I was the predator. What do I think? I like the way @FutureMrsMcK: put it: we ran into each other sideways. I have never felt more loved, more needed or more wanted than when I started dating SO. He like to remind me I ran up his texting bill by a couple hundred dollars in those first few weeks but he seems to forget he drunkenly professed his love for me after a week of dating.

    We both just seemed to fall into each others laps and we couldn’t bare to be separated.

    I was just like you in all my previous serious relationships. I always felt like I was chasing after the guy.

    I guess that’s why Fiance impressed me SO much. I was definitely his “prey”. He was all about me, and had no shame in making it known from the first minute we were introduced. I used to tease him that he must have a secret journal with sweet things to woo a woman written inside ;o)

    I was dealing with a crazy ex when Fiance and I were first casually dating. I tried to keep my distance from Fiance only because I didn’t want him to be involved with drama. I already cared, and respected him too much for that. But it happened anyway…Crazy ex ran into Fiance and moritified me by having this convo:

    Crazy ex- “Please just leave her alone, just for like 2 weeks so I can see if I can have a chance to get her back.” (*which was interesting because he didn’t care THAT much when we actually were together…)

    FI- “Honestly, I can’t leave her alone for 2 seconds, let alone 2 weeks.”

    See! How sweet was that?! Five years later, he has never left me alone Laughing

    Predator, for the first time in my life! It took months of dropping not-too-subtle hints for him to ask me out. It took me a while to get over it, especially after he told me of how many women he chased at our office, really unattractive ones too, but not me. His story to this day is that he thought I was so out of his league, he never even considered the possibility. He thought I was talking to him just to be nice and polite.

    I was the “predator” for all of about 1 day – which was just long enough to get him to finally realize that I really truly liked him and wasn’t just playing.

    The first day I met Fiance, we sort of made out that night (TMI? sorry!), and I definitely initiated that. I thought it was just a one-night thing, though, until I checked Facebook and Fiance asked me if we had “something interesting” between us. I wasn’t completely convinced, but then we kept hanging out and there definitely is something interesting! I guess I started pursuing, but he kept up the chase :).
