It wasn't love at first sight and I didn't get married young. After years of average dates, hot hookups, and bad breakups, I'd actually found The One. Our love grew out of a deep friendship, which I believed was the secret to a lasting marriage.
I realized why it felt weird. Because I felt nothing. At some point, my ex lost his control over me. Completely. That's why I'm grateful I ran into him. Our little run-in is proof of how far I've come.
