Sucker for a good love story... you have one???
I LOVE romantic comedy's and stories of how people met... especially the least likely couples or the opposite attracts couples, or the friends for years then boom couples...
Any of you have great loves stories??? I have found that even though people meet in a normal or regular boy meets girl way... when in hindsight and you look back on it, you see how meant to be it was...

Fast forward 2 years, during which time we stayed friends (purely platonic) in the same social circle. On Sept 11th, I was in my office in mid-town when the planes hit the twin towers, and he called me to tell me to get the hell out of there. I was in shock, just sitting at my desk, not knowing what to do, and he shook me out of it. Two weeks later, we went together to a "Canada loves NY" rally (because I'm Canadian) and spent the entire day together. He tells me that was the day he began to think he would marry me one day. It took him a couple of months to get up the courage to ask me out again, though, given that we'd been friends for so long. He finally did in January 2012 - took me out to dinner b/c he had lost a bet we'd made (the loser had to pay for dinner, but I was expecting pizza, not a fancy restaurant) and he was all nervous the whole time. I kept thinking, why is he so nervous and sweaty? Haha. Well, then he gave me this whole speech about why we should give it another try, and told me to think about it. And then the next day he dropped off this hilarious "application for boyfriend status" at my apartment that just had me crying with laughter. So I was scared to accept - because I thought it would ruin our friendship, but then I realized the friendship was ruined now anyway, so I may as well see what comes next.
We got married in Dec 2012 and have 3 kids. And even though he said he'd never move to Canada, that's where we are now :-)
