I met my guy at a bar (classy, I know). He was a regular and I just started going there with my friend, who introduced us.
He was more aggressive than I, though we were both flirty when we'd see each other. It was mostly just a joke-y, flirty relationship for awhile.
After about 2 years of friendship and hanging out at the bar among friends together, you could practically cut the sexual tension with a knife. We each had our fair share of relationships and hookups thanks to said bar, and I guess after 2 years we finally realized it was our turn.
Funny, but when we get asked how we started dating, he says "well one night I seated her that I wanted her to sit on my face. The next night, she sat on my face and the rest is history." lol like I said, we each had our fair share of hookups, but I think we both knew from the get go that this was different. I went over his place the next night for a movie. Then the next night he took me out to dinner. From there it just became more and more about this deep connection and less about the face-sitting ; )
It took us about a week or so before we officially recognized ourselves as dating, but we'd known each other so long that we were already good friends and got that out of the way. I can say now with confidence that he is without a doubt my soul mate. Who knew that my soul mate was right in front of me for 2 years?
For all the single folk, inexperienced or not, I think the mantra "it happens when you least expect it" definitely holds true, not only with my life as an example but other friends and family, as well. Know what you want out of life, be comfortable and confident with yourself, and a significant other will follow suit when it's meant to be.2
