I was dating someone else at the time, when Eddie and I first met. He had approached me at a party and even though I thought he was incredibly handsome (and already knew who he was), I didn't give him the time of day to talk to me! I started to run into him all the time - we always seemed to be at the same places and even though he was flirtatious, I didn't think anything of it because once again I was in a relationship, albeit a terrible one. For the next nine months we became really close, he became my best friend. He was always calling, texting and wanting to meet up with me. During that time, I was completely oblivious (and slightly naive) and never thought he looked at me in any sort of romantic way. Also, during this nine month stretch, my previous relationship was really deteriorating and everytime it always came down to, "Why can't he be like Eddie?" I knew I always felt something strong for him, but I never expected for him to feel the same. Fastforward some time, Eddie and I went to a bbq and as he drove me back to my house, he turned on the song "Crush" by Dave Matthews Band. He said that for months he had been wanting to tell me how he really felt. He was falling hard for me and didn't want to hide it anymore, because "he couldn't help but wonder what if?" I broke up with my old boyfriend soon-there-after and we've been together and inseperable ever since. He's perfect and one of the things that makes this story so romantic is he was in love with me the whole time and he decided to take a chance and let me know!
