Each time has been a chance to make both ourselves and our relationship stronger.
Moved in with the blind date about 60 days later, and married him the following year. I met my husband while I was engaged to another man. I'd been in a relationship for a few years, which for the previous two years had been a long-distance relationship where we only saw each other in the summer and on the big holidays you'd go home from college for.
However, at that point in time, I had no interest in him, since I thought I had "the one". He'd been gradually getting harder to contact and not writing as many letters, but he always blamed that on being so busy at college.
If so, did meeting "the one" cause/contribute towards your break up, or did it die a natural, unrelated death? It was amazing how life just kept making us bump into each other.
and I was single again when we ran into each other again in a college class...
When we were first getting to know one another, she was in the process of breaking up with her current boyfried, so the timing was perfect. He was doing the casually-serious-dating thing with three different women at the time, seeing how things would pan out. Married now, always wondered what happened to Rich. Fast forward about a year-- My relationship with the other girl had ended, circumstances changed, and I started seeing a lot more of future-wife, and before too long we really hit it off.
Then he took a night class, met someone else, and the next day, broke it off with all three of them. Short answer: No, I was not dating someone else when I met "the one." Long answer: It was a long time before "the one" (or, "the one who was to be 'the one'") and I got romantic.
In the Reddit thread: "What to do when your partner has a crush," MLU together. I swear, if I asked Reddit for help during the times she had crushes, cuz it was shitty times, it would have told me to walk away with a couple hundred upvotes, and that would have been the absolute worst advice.
We've been married two years now (though we've been devoted to each other for ten years) and could not be happier.
Meanwhile, my second year of college starts and I meet a neat guy who hits on me then I tell him I'm dating someone.
