I am 26 next week. We have been "together" for 3 years and 4 months.
We knew of each other in high school. (He was a grade behind me), we had common friends, but never spoke, he played guitar in a band where everyone was in my grade but him, so he stood out to me. He actually grew up in the town next to me!!
Aug 1, 1998 (4 years after I graduated HS) I was on a public Montreal bus and I recognized Steve as he got on the bus. He was in his Customs uniform, he recognized me too. I asked "hey aren't you Steve from the band?" We chatted all the way to the metro station (where we now live) and we said bye, 5 seconds later I heard him running down the escalator. (My metro was coming), he asked me for my number in case there was a hS get together.
He called me the next day and we chatted for a long time, although I was in a bad relationship at the time. We were friends for 9 months, we spoke mostly on the phone and met up occasionally. I thought of him only as a friend, but suspected that he may have liked me more then a friend.
May 1999, I started feeling major feelings for him suddenly...The "bad relationship" was out of the picture.
I started seeing him more, and invited him out one night with my friends, and we had our first kiss
We got engaged on Vday 2002, and the wedding is June 2003.
Yes I am still VERY HAPPY!!!
