We met on a sportbike forum, actually (sportbikes.ws). He PM'd me about a bike I had posted up for sale for a friend (neither of us had bikes at the time). We just got to be friends via PM and email (I had a boyfriend at the time... the cheating one mentioned in the other
thread), and realized we lived like 4 miles apart, and knew a bunch of people in common.
Fast forward a few months, and the boyfriend and I broke up (thank GOD!), and Chris was my shoulder to cry on, my confidant, etc... we got to be good friends, I'd go to his softball games, etc.. and I was ALWAYS trying to set him up with single friends of mine (and he'd always turn the offers down).
So a couple more months go by, I hadn't seen him in a while (but we emailed daily), and I asked him to come meet me for a beer and some pool at a local pub. I didn't even have romantic feelings for him at the time, just thought he was a super nice guy, really cute, a lot of fun....
So I'm sitting there in the pub, sipping on a Bass, and he walks in, and it was like all of the sudden I realized, "WHOAH! He's hot!" (I later learned the reason he wouldn't let me set him up with any of my friends was cus he thought I
was hot as well
).... and the rest is history!
We didn't smash out unitl the middle of the two weeks though. but i didn't mind for some reason.
If by "smash out" you mean consummated the relationship, yeah, we didn't for about 2 months actually. Saw each other ALL the time, spent the night at each other's houses all the time, etc... but just took our time in that regard. And obviously, it worked out for the best!
