I never thought I wanted to get married. I never thought I was the marrying type. I was always dating someone. They were never important to me. They were just the next best thing–someone to keep me company in the meantime. Then I met him. I fell in love with him before our first date (another post, another day). I realized that the reason I never wanted to get married and never thought that marriage was important was because I hadn’t met him yet.
Shortly after we started dating, I knew that never again did I want to be without him, my best friend. While we are not married, it does give me a new outlook on marriage. Now I want to be married. I’m a changed girl (thanks to BF). Now I want a life long commitment to my best friend.
