Bit of a love story really ....
My OH is 12 years older than me. He and my brother met at senior school the year I was born and they instantly hit it off.
He has always been in my life, I saw him like another brother, I began to like him when I was about 16 but I never said anything, as he was in a long term relationship.
He supported me through the breakdown of an abusive relationship and shortly after he and his partner split. It was approximatly 3 months later he confessed to me that he had liked me too for quite sometime, but never said anything, as he thought I was happy (No one knew of the abuse until we split.)
We have now been together 3 years, he has taken on my child from the relationship with my ex and he is a fantastic father figure. I am soooo happy and soooo much in love
Wish it had happened sooner !
