the one who was never meant to be

Did anyone listen to Emily Blunt's interview with Howard Stern last week? I only heard a snippet from when she discussed her past relationship with Michael Buble and I couldn't help thinking... the relationship kind of sounds like an open wound for the actress.

Blunt and Buble dated for three years and according to Howard Stern, the relationship ended in 2008 because Buble cheated on her. She started dating John Krasinski the same year (rebound?) and they got married in 2010. Side note: When the H-bomb and I were planning our wedding, I met with a photographer who told me he'd recently shot a wedding in Italy and asked if I wanted to look through the photos. It was Emily Blunt and John Krasinski's wedding at George Clooney's house. I got to see ALL of their wedding pictures. For a girl who's as celeb-obsessed as I am, it was a dream come true.

And yes, they seemed totally in love-- BUT...

... is it possible to be totally in love with your spouse, and still have that other person from your past you wonder about time to time? This isn't the one who got away. It's the one who was never meant to be. You know why that relationship didn't work, you've totally moved on, but there's still that small part of you that would feel your tummy flip if you saw his/her wedding pictures on Facebook or learned he/she was having a baby. Or that would get all nervous and awkward if you ran into them in public. Maybe it's the person you still secretly Google every now and then or have to pretend to act all casual about it when he/she comes up in conversation with mutual friends.

I think we all have those exes or former flings in our lives. Which means WE might also be that person for someone else. I'm willing to bet my life that Blunt and Buble are those people to each other.

Do you have "the one who was never meant to be" in your life that still pops into your head sometimes? Comment below!

  1. Yes, yes, yes! There is definitely someone I think about with whom I know it was not meant to be. He had a profound effect on me despite it being a 3-month rendezvous, but this guy didn't "get away." We just weren't meant to be, and I'm fine with that (I think we both are). Thanks for putting my feelings into words, Sara!
