When the Hubby and I first met and started talking many years ago he asked me to the movies and I responded with “we’ll see”. It’s something I still tease him about to this day because he said prior to that he had never been turned down for a date, but at the time I wasn’t ready for a new relationship. Him and I ended up becoming friends and he turned into one of my best friends over the years. We told each other everything, from work complaints to relationship complaints. Giving each other advice and arguing when we didn’t agree with something the other person was doing in their life. After 6 years of being friends we finally went on our first “date”. He picked me up from work and took me out to lunch where we were both nervous wrecks. It ended up turning out that we both were in weird places in our lives yet again. We were both in on again off again relationships at the time and while we were off with our significant others we still weren’t sure if we were done for good. So we continued to stay friends. Then it just so happened that at around the same time we both were done for good with our bad relationships and moving on from them. It was then that we decided to give dating a try and let me tell you… Dating someone who is your best friend, the person who knows all of your secrets, flaws, ect is a weird feeling. Our first couple dates were awkward and I was nervous that if things didn’t work out that I would be losing my person. (if you watch grey’s anatomy you know the reference).
The nervousness quickly subsided and we were inseparable. When we weren’t at work we were always together and since he works nights, often times he would bring me lunch at work and we would end up spending my lunch hour together. Our relationship grew quickly and within a year of dating we were having our first baby together and married. It might seem crazy to some, but with him I just knew. We had been friends for so long that once I saw how well we did as a couple I couldn’t imagine spending my life with anyone else. We see eye to eye on most things, rarely fight, and always have a good time around each other. It’s a truly unique and amazing experience marrying your best friend…
We’ve been together now for almost 5 years. We’ve had our good days and bad just like any other relationship, we’ve moved from Ca to Co, and our second little one will be arriving in just 3 weeks. I hate to sound so cliche, but he is still my best friend and I still miss him everyday as soon as he leaves for work. He’s my person. The one who frustrates me, understands me, supports me, loves me, and can always make me laugh. I’m so thankful that we just clicked because I couldn’t imagine my life without him…
