Today marks nine years of my husband and I dating! We met on a bus (more on that some other time!) while in our second year of university, and I’ll admit that at first I played hard to get.
I had just recently gotten out of a relationship that unfortunately ended way past its expiration date, and was resolved to a year of being single and finding myself. I am so grateful he respected my wishes to be friends first and get to know each other. It was so refreshing to meet someone I could completely be myself with, weird moments and all.
The friends phase might have only lasted two months before we shared our first kiss and became a couple, but now I can happily say he is my best friend; my confider; my travel partner; my “pio”; my husband; and an amazing dad to our wonderful little boy.
