25 Things You Never Knew About Blake Lively And Ryan Reynolds’ Relationship

If you love Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively as much as we do, then you probably already follow the cute ways in which they constantly troll each other online. Although no relationship is perfect, theirs certainly comes very close. And after reading through this list, you'll be able to see why:

1. Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds met in 2010 when they were cast as the leads in Green Lantern.

2. At this time, Blake was dating Gossip Girl co-star Penn Badgley while Ryan was married to Scarlett Johansson.

3. After Blake and Penn broke up and Ryan got divorced, the two went on a double date; Blake was there for another man, and Ryan there for another woman.

4. Of that date, Ryan said: "That was the most awkward date [from their perspective] probably because we were just like fireworks coming across."

5. Blake didn't exactly feel that way, though. She said, "[That date] went well for him. I don't know about fireworks for me."

6. They'd sit around and try to think of people the other could date. "Oh, who would be good for you?" We'd sit around being like, "Oh jeez, do you know anyone?" And it didn't click for, I mean, a good year and a half. Like, "Oh hey, wait, hold on. We could date!" says Blake.

7. After they were spotted together in Boston in 2011, sources confirmed they were a couple.

8. They fell in love in Japanese restaurant O Ya in Boston.

9. Blake and Ryan requested a coloring book so they could play Tic-Tac-Toe while on a dinner date in Vancouver.

10. In September 2012, Blake and Ryan held a secret wedding in South Carolina.

11. Featured in their wedding were: an impressive dessert table, a sky lantern release, and a performance by Florence Welch.

12. They say the secret to their successful marriage is that they don't work at the same time.

13. And, according to Blake at least, the fact that they are friends first and foremost. "That's what I appreciate about our relationship is that he really is—he's my friend, first and foremost still, you know? Not just in our history but in everyday life, he is my friend first. And I think that's the secret to happiness. I don't know! I don't know the secret to happiness, but the secret to my happiness."

14. She also likes the fact that "he lived so much before we got together, he's the exact realized person that he should be." Ryan is 10 years Blake's senior.
