Kristen Stewart is reflecting on the beginning of her relationship with fiancée Dylan Meyer.

During Stewart's appearance on The Drew Barrymore Show Monday, the Love Lies Bleeding star addressed first meeting Meyer years before they began dating after host Drew Barrymore mentioned the importance of timing in a relationship.

"Yeah, I did get really lucky to re-meet someone that I was like — I was so ill-equipped and now I am like going to make this happen," Stewart, 33, said during the appearance. "Yeah, I was just sort of in the right place to recognize and kind of respect how good she was compared to me, my selfish little self."

Stewart and Meyer, a screenwriter and actress, began dating in 2019, but Stewart has shared in the past that they first met several years before the start of their romance.

On The Howard Stern Show in November 2019, she remarked that she and Meyer began dating following a reconnection at a mutual friend's birthday party six years after meeting on a movie set.

Stewart confirmed that she and Meyer were engaged in November 2021, and a source recently told PEOPLE that the couple is "totally in love."
