Sarah and Bill
I dated a lot of men over the years and have no regrets about those past relationships because they informed me and molded me into a better person. I would tell other members to accept "dud dates" as life lessons and to have faith someone better is right around the corner. By the time Bill came into my life I was confident of who I was and what I wanted in a partner and in life. Coming from a good place mentally and emotionally allows you to bring more to the table and enjoy what the other has to offer.
Bill and I are very deeply in love with other. We turned out to be more than we ever expected for each other. Not that we had low expectations because I'm very picky and he had a clear idea of what he was looking for too, just that we're so compatible it's uncanny. We fit together naturally and it feels like we've known each other forever.
People ask us how long we've been together and it always surprises us to realize it's not as long as it seems in our heads. We love each other with a passion that feels like we're teenagers, trust and depend on each other, cannot imagine a life without each other. We both feel like it took our whole lives to find each other and now we're sticking together like mac and cheese.
