In the wide genre of romance, there are all kinds of romantic pairings.
And that’s just scratching the surface.
Ryan and I were complete strangers. All I knew about him was that he made me giddy whenever he’d come to my workplace to deliver a new package. Now, nine years later, we’re married and it’s hard to think I lived nineteen years without him.
In some ways we’re opposite. I’m pretty outgoing, I have an easy time opening up to people, and I have no problem being in the spotlight (shocker, I know!). Ryan, however, is shy. He has a hard time opening up to people until he gets to know them and he most definitely does not like being in any sort of spotlight.
But in other ways, we’re similar. We have the same faith, the same sense of humor, and the same living habits. All of which made becoming man and wife quite easy. Some people say that first year of marriage is the most difficult, but for Ryan and I, living with and adjusting to each other was as easy as one, two, three.
Let’s Talk: Tell me about your real-life romance (even you lurkers out there)! I love hearing these stories! Did you fall in love with your best friend? Your enemy? The bad boy? The nice guy? If you have yet to give your heart away, what prototype do you envision for yourself?
