After being together for a year, during a chance conversation about first crushes, Mr Pounders mentioned a girl named Amy.
An American couple have found they may have always been destined to be together - after realising they had been pre-school sweethearts.
Amy Giberson and Justin Pounders had a "shy" but brief romance at the Sunshine Preschool in St Petersburg, Florida when they were three years old - they shared toys, sat together at lunch time and played tag in the playground.
They drifted apart and forgot about each other as they grew up and went to different schools.
Thirty years on, and the pair were reunited by an online dating service.
Thirty years later, they met again on a dating website and spent almost a year together before realizing that they went to preschool together in St.
Petersburg."I remember having a little preschool crush thing on a girl named Amy," Pounders told USA TODAY network.Pounders' mom eventually dug up some photos of the pair.“You’re lucky enough if you get to find a great love [...] then to find out that you’ve been circling each other your whole life, to know it started way back then, it just overwhelmed me with happiness,” Giberson told USA TODAY Network.I can't explain it, but I knew I had to get to know this girl." Ms Giberson said: "Of course, at that point, we still didn't know we had been pre-K sweethearts, but when we met up and we hugged, it was like I had known him my whole life."When I first saw him, I felt that I was staring at the man I was going to marry."
