Today is mine and Jamie’s first year anniversary, we were best friends for 12 months before after meeting on a blind date where he thought I was cold and I thought he was rude and a little immature, after two dates I deleted and blocked his phone number. Fast forward 6 months and we bumped into each other and arranged to hang out as friends which we were for 12 months in fact he was my best friend, we were each other’s wing man. Til 12 months ago and he asked if I was ever going to kiss him, which I actually laughed in face at and the rest is history.
Looking back I can’t believe how different we both look and how many different looks we have had. I’m truly blessed to be in love with this man, we are definitely each other’s cheerleaders and number one fans. I’m pretty sure if I told him I wanted to be a dancing astronaut he would support me and help me live my dream.
In December we got in Engaged which was extremely exciting and special and are planning on getting married in the next 12 months.
The best thing about being friends first is he knew all my bad habits, he had seen my ugly crying face, me without make up, tackling an all you can eat buffet in my fat pants and my bad taste in 90s pop music. And despite my awful singing along to the spice girls still fell in love with me.
We have spent the past year adding to our family, Dave turned four and we got four hungry mouths to feed.
A year later I can’t believe we almost didn’t happen, we were the happiest of friends and if it wasn’t for one kiss we could still be the dreaded friendzone. I hope we have many many more happy years together and keep adding to our little family.
Maybe you should have another look in your friendzone because timing really is everything.
