Justin Timberlake: 7
David Fanning: 18
I was really torn. I really like both versions. In fact, when I wrote up this battle (and this post) back in June I was still undecided. I figured that some time to ferment couldn't hurt... In the end, I vote for Justin Timberlake. Yeah, I know my vote doesn't change anything. Ah well, such is life.
I bet you're wondering what happened after J1's grand pronouncement.
Turns out, he showed up at my door the next day. I don't think he did ten rounds with Southern Comfort, but I feel safe in saying that he also had a really crappy night.
However, he did spend his time introspectively (which was better than my choice of "working it out") and came to the conclusion that his problem was rooted in the fact that his sister had been his best friend. They were only a year apart and very close. He'd had several girlfriends over the years, but none came close to feeling like a best friend. I think I told you that we were good friends the previous year (before he left), so this was new territory for him... merging a close/best friend with a girlfriend.
Ergo, it felt too close to the relationship he had with his sister.
However, after giving it a try, he decided that kissing me was nothing like kissing his sister. What a relief!
Were you best friends with your SO before you became an item? Did you make the transition easily? Or was it more like a ride on this crazy train?
If you're enjoying these posts, feel free to share your own Soundtrack. This isn't a hop. No requirements at all, but a suggestion to do it one song at a time. (If you participated in the hop several years ago, you can still do this. Just post them one song at a time, with the freedom to add more songs if you'd like.) I'll link to all participants at the bottom of each of these posts:
