Bridgit Mendler says that she didn't want to date Shane Harper at first! While on the Meredith Viera Show, the actress revealed that when she initially met her current boyfriend on Good Luck Charlie, they didn't hit it off.

“I don’t know [why we didn't click at first]. I’m not going to say it was his fault, I think we were both young. We were 16 when we met. I don’t know, maybe he was just too boisterous or something and I was just lame and I thought I was too good,” she said.


Apparently, he eventually convinced her to go out with him after their friend groups started to merge.

“Two years later, we were just in the same friend group for awhile and he wore me down. Persistence. I think chivalry should never die. I think a guy should fight for a girl and wait for a girl.”

They've been dating for almost four years now, so it seems like that's working out well for them.
