I had just gotten out of a "relationship" with a guy I had really like for a couple of years and we had been just friends and I though were moving it to the next level. Apparently I was the fat girl fling, cause he dropped me in November and married a Carly Simon look alike in January. Grant had also been my friend for a while and started coming around the camera store I was managing more, taking me for coffee and lunch. Showing up to eat his lunch while I was in the darkroom(yes in the darkroom) working on University Photography projects. I wanted nothing to do with any man after being stung. But he was persistant asking me out and I would have girlfriends meet me there, for a while Grant thought he had a harem LOL. When we finally started dating on our own( I gave up the protective gals) he took it really slow with me knowing that I had been badly hurt. To the point where one night I finally confronted him about what exactly is going on here. We have been going out for a month now and you won't let me pay for anything, call me all the time jsut to talk, and yet you have never made a move past holding my hand. It was a long speech but broke down to this Are we friends, do you want more or whats going on here? I know I am having feelings other than friendship, but don't want to ruin a good friendship. He simply reached across my lap opened up the door and said I have been thinking about the same thing Good night. Well I went in the house that night and figured I blew it would never hear from him again. But he called on his coffee break mid morning and said I blew his mind cause he had been rehearsing the same speech and was so flabbergasted that he didn't know what to say.
Things moved fairly quickly from there. Within a couple of months we were engaged and married Sept of 1985. We have had a roller coaster ride of a marriage and almost gave up a couple of times cause of the immense pressures and problems we encountered. But still together after all these years as the song goes.
