Blake Shelton admits that he didn’t expect his relationship with Gwen Stefani to last as long as it has.
He said, "I think that in the back of our minds we both kind of thought this is a rebound deal, because we were both coming out of a pretty low spot in our lives and were kind of clinging to each other to get through this. But now here we are, going on three years later."
They got together shortly after Shelton’s divorce from Miranda Lambert and Stefani’s divorce from Gavin Rossdale. Shelton’s full interview airs this Sunday, June 24.
I met my wife after coming out of a long relationship. I told myself I would date causally at the time, which I think was the right mindset. I went on a few dates, which were good to be honest. I had interests in them all but was taking it super slow. Then I met Jessi.
We actually met on MySpace.
She messaged me and complimented my profile for not being full of auto play songs, glitter, and general garbage. That was a thing back then.
Next thing you know we meet up to hang. I knew she was special immediately.
I wanted to slow things down because of this. I didn't want her to just be a rebound. Turns out, even though technically she was a rebound, she was also perfect for me. And here we are, 9 years later next week.
I think anyone who has ever broken off a relationship and then dated someone new is technically dating a rebound. We all bring some baggage and we are all on the rebound, until we meet that one person that steals our hearts. I know, sappy stuff but it's true.
