Julien & Ashley
Hometown: Toronto
Together since: 2007


I (Ashley) met Julien in Fredericton, where we were both living at the time. I actually met him through a friend who had recently ended a short relationship with him (they decided it would be best to just be friends).


At the time, I was looking for a photographer to do some headshots, and my friend suggested Julien. I loved his work and immediately set a date for the shoot. That day, I met him outside of a ’50s diner and it literally felt like love at first sight, as cheesy as that sounds. My friend (a.k.a. his ex) joined us for the photo shoot, and Julien and I kept flirting when she wasn’t looking. But later that night, my friend admitted she still had feelings for him. I felt terrible! But the more all three of us hung out together, the more she saw that he really liked me—and she realized she didn't like him like that way anymore. One night, Julien and I chatted until 4 a.m., talking in a sort of code about how we really liked one other. But he finally asked me straight out if I would be his girlfriend. I said yes and we've been together ever since.
