i NEVER thought i'd be dating my bf, m. i was, for lack of a better term, "friends with benefits" with his best friend/my friend from college when i met him. we were instantly attracted to one another, but i was still seeing j. j treated me like shit and i would have much rather dated m back then, but m knew j really cared about me and wouldn't jeopardize their friendship. that was 4 years ago. when j moved to california, m came back into the picture and we've been together for almost 2 years. i never ever thought we'd get to date. now, as for if he's "the one" i don't know. everyone says you should know right away. all i know is that it took m and i about 2-3 years to get together in the first place. so, erin, stranger things have happened. it's probably just someone you haven't met yet. on the bright side, you're still WAY younger than old me! haha! you've got plenty of time to meet someone. i'm the old maid!
