"We went on a double date; she was on a date with another guy, and I was on a date with another girl."I have known him for about three years and we have been dating for about three months," Morissette says."I'm not diving into commitment and professing undying love within the first three hours anymore.The two would, of course, eventually got married in September 2012.“We were buddies for a long time, which I think is the best way to have a relationship, to start as friends,” Reynolds said.
