Most Helpful Guy
27 going into 28. I was having lunch with friends and I noticed a girl crying across the table from us, I walked up to her asked her if she was okay, I made a few jokes to cheer her up. We then exchanged emails and we started talking and I asked her out after about a week of talking. I knew she was the one after the 3rd date. Now a year later we are engaged to be married.

I met him when I was 5 or 6, but obviously at that time, I had no idea he would eventually be my person. It took me moving across the country and him working overseas before we even re-connected as adults instead of just childhood acquaintances.
I mean... his older sister used to babysit me... I ended up babysitting for her when I was older... we went to the same schools and even the same college without ever really being friends as kids.
Fastforward to adulthood, we reconnected... slowly became best friends for a good 8 years before officially dating... dated for 2 years before we got engaged... and now getting married next August.
Most people jump into "settled life" when they are early 20's, as if it's some sort of mandated checklist in order to have a fulfilling life.
To be honest, I didn't even kiss a guy until I was 25... and didn't have sex until I was 26! I used to worry I was going to die alone, and ended up in a lot of terrible relationships because I thought that dating and marriage were the things I was supposed to be doing.
I took a year off from all dating when I was 31... and after that year is when I started dating my now fiance. I'm 34 and feel like your 30's is a good age to start thinking about those things, because you have a better sense of who you are and what you want.. and the men are a bit more mature lol.
We prob won't have kids anytime soon though; we are having two much fun with just us and all the traveling and adventures out there.
