OT - HUGE change in my life & quick
Hi all,

I haven't been on for a week, which for me is crazy, because I'm usually on here what seems like all day everyday. But this week has been a whirlwind for me.

I have been single for a while now...well no more. I had a friend of mine come into town, I've known him since I was about 9 years old. He was my first kiss, I was his first kiss. I know him because he and his family have gone to my church since the moved to the US from Belize. Anyway, he came up here to visit his sister who is in college, and called me (last Monday) to see if I wanted to go out to dinner. We went to dinner, talked had a good time, well, somehow, we decided that we should be together. So he just left to go home. He's been here a week.

On Saturday, we drove 3 hours and went to his niece's birthday party, told his family we're dating, then met my parents for dinner. There were a lot of double takes, wide eyes, and "uhhh, oh....uhhh, really?!?" (My cousin thought I was joking and trying to play a trick on her).

See we've known each other for about 21-22 years now (I'm 31, he's 32), and there's no needing to get to know one another, no trying to put the best foot forward, etc. I know all his f ups and he knows mine. This is the weirdest thing, we just fell into FULL relationship mode. I think we've been there for a while, anytime we are around one another, people think we're together anyway.

Well, he went and got his son on Friday, and we spent the whole weekend together. It was amazing. I've never felt this thing that I'm feeling right now. I'm so excited, but my head is still spinning!!!!!

I am so comfortable with him it's kinda scary, in fact all of my friends up here have been talking about it, and telling me they've never seen me so happy, or relaxed. Most of them have known me between 5-9 years. They're amazed.

I had to share, everyone on this board is like family, and I kinda wanted to see what ya'll think....good lord, I barely know what I think, my family and his family are all in shock. Good shock, but shock nonetheless!!!

Many this is so strange. I feel like I'm where I should be and where I've always wanted to be and it's kinda freakin' me out.

Good Luck. Sometimes things just happen this way. I've known couples who knew right away that they were going to spend the rest of their lives together.

What a wonderful feeling! I am glad for you both and wish you the best life has to offer! Go with and enjoy every moment! Isn't great to "find" something like that when it's been so close to you for so long. Sigh, I love happy endings/new beginnings!

It does sound wonderful!
It comes down to timing. You were both ready for the same thing, at the same time.

Wow, I actually finished something!

Congratulations! I think it's wonderful!

My sister knew my dh's brother for about 10 years before it "clicked." They were best friends throughout her first marriage and her divorce that followed (he in no way caused it). She never felt anything romantic until the day after her divorce was final. As she says, God zapped her with "love" feelings for him. They had their first date/kiss on New Year's Eve and were married that June. They had been best friends ever since she was 14. It was the natural thing.

So, having said all that, I've seen it happen and totally believe in it. Good luck!!! I hope it works out for you too!!!
