Dating best friends widow
It hurt, literally, to stand there and pick out my best friend’s engagement ring and I think Jon noticed my pain because he asked me what I thought about him proposing and if I knew of any reason why he shouldn’t go through with it.We stood there in the jewelry store staring into each other’s eyes, I wanted to tell him my feelings and, according to Jon, he was waiting to hear that I cared for him.Kayla’s previous relationship was a train wreck that broke her spirit, but when Jon came along, he brought her happy glow back and that was good enough for me.The first sign that there might be a connection between Jon and I was when I started dating a new guy a little over a year into their relationship.See when I first met Jon he was in another relationship, with my best friend.Kayla and I met in high school and were thick as thieves from the start.We all went on a double date where he proceeded to grill the guy I was with in a way that left both Kayla and I puzzled. We got along well, had a ton in common, but our relationship stayed strictly platonic.Jon acted more like a jealous ex than a friend looking out, but he brushed it off as him just having a bad sense about the guy. When Jon decided he wanted to settle down and marry Kayla, he asked me to help him pick out the ring and that was my first sense that my feelings towards him were more than just friendly.
As messed up as it is, sometimes you truly cannot help who you love and Jon and I do love each other and have built a beautiful family from that love.My name is Melissa and I am a mother to two wonderful children and wife to an amazing man named Jonathan.Our lives together over the past 3 years have been everything I’ve ever dreamed of, however, it hasn’t always been bliss and unfortunately the path to our love caused a lot of people pain.After the wedding I distanced myself from the situation a bit.I mean, it was only right with everything that I was feeling.
