    Default How did you meet you husband, BF or SO?

    How did you meet your partner? Was it love at first sight?

    I met my dh at work. I worked for a little company that made Radon Monitors. They were looking for a new tech person. The place only employeed about 25 people. My desk was next to the boss. Everytime a guy would come in and fill out an application my friend and I would hold up a score card. She was married so she wasn't interested other than gettting a nice looking guy to look at all day.

    Well, my dh came in and applied and he got the highest score from us and the highest score on a test they had to take. After a few weeks of bugging the boss to hire "that Mark guy" my dh called to check on the position and the boss said he was just going to call him and offer him the job. Yay!!

    After putting up such a fuss about him being the one picked I let my girlfriend ask all the questions once he started working there. Was he married, have a girlfriend, any kids you know the typical questions. He had just graduated from college with an engineering degree. Just moved out of the house. He thought I was stuck up at first, but I just didn't want to seem interested.

    Anyhoo, one day I came into the parking lot just about a minute from being late and he was pulling in too. My car was not running right and he said he could fix it for me. So naturally I asked when and he said after work. So he came over and we have been together ever since. We started dating on 8/8/88 and were married by 12/10/88 We are going on 22 years.

    He only worked there long enough to get a wife. He moved on to an Engineering position a few months later.

    DH and I met when we were around 7 or 8 years old. He lived down the street from my mom's BFF. We met when I was over at her house playing with her boys.

    Default I Like to Call This the "Nada is SOOOOO STUPID" Story

    I hate telling this story, but you might get a laugh out of it.

    I met my DH online (yup, online!). We went out on an 11 hour date and learned everything about each other. He was cute, quirky, intelligent, just about everything I wanted.

    And the next day, I started dating someone else. To be honest, I thought that God put this other guy in my path (and He did, but not for any reason that was positive for me -- I had something to teach this guy. But that's another story). My poor DH was crushed, but he decided he wanted to have me as a friend.

    Over the next four months we talked all the time and became good friends, getting together for lunches occasionally and chatting it up online, all the while I dated this other guy. The other guy was NOT whom I should've been with, but I didn't realize it, right away. He was jealous, dorky, not attractive, and very very "man of the house", if that makes sense (the kind of guy who thought that just because we were dating, he should be making all my decisions for me). He even decided I should see a therapist (for no good reason), and even made an appointment for me! Boy, did I ever get mad! (Again, another story.)

    One day, I decided to introduce the jealous not-right-for-me guy to my friend (DH). We met at a little coffee shop. I was sitting there thinking about how wrong this guy was for me, and in walked my friend (DH). I saw him and immediately went, "WOW! WHAT THE HELL AM I DOING?!!!" It was like a light went on in my brain. I couldn't get over the fact that I was dating this absolute loser when my good friend, who I knew was interested in me, was sitting right there across the table from me!

    Unfortunately, it was just around Christmas. Right before New Years. And a few days before the jealous guy's birthday. I felt awful. I so wanted to just end it there, but I didn't want to ruin his holidays for him. So he went away to visit his family out of town and I... well, spent the whole time he was away with my friend (DH) -- and FYI: nothing happened, we just went out for dinner and chatted and did what we normally did.

    The day the jealous guy got back, just after Christmas (Dec 28), my friend (DH) and I had gone to church. I went over to see the jealous guy right after and immediately told him it was over. He actually was very upset, thinking he had actually been really good for me. Happy Christmas to him.

    I left, called my friend (DH) and we met for coffee. He knew I was planning to end this relationship and didn't want to waste any time (probably because he knew I was an absolute moron and didn't want me to do something stupid again). He told me he had feelings for me and wanted to persue a relationship.

    5 months later, we were engaged.
    4 months later, we were married.
    Two weeks after our wedding, we found out we were pregnant.

    And the jealous guy? Well, that's another story.

    Met my SO online as well. We both played an online game, ended up in the same party group and it was love at hello. Absolutely fell for each other at that moment. We now have a group of online friends that come and go and always comment on how neat it is that we met there.

    Its been two years now and we just made long-term plans to become local in 5 years. (due to finances and home life stuff it will take five for sure, possibly longer, but I'm gazelle intense and so is he)

    He's in Delaware, I'm in Colorado. Love knows no distance, we're 1,495 miles away from each other and I wouldn't trade a single mile for anyone else.

    I love all these stories! Is fun to see how people meet each other and become a couple. Each story is so different, one of a kind!

    I was working in Miller Armory on Camp Dodge as an augmentee recruiter. He had just got home from Kosovo and was working on orders in Miller Armory.

    I turned a corner and he was right there. My heart stopped. We didn't get together for months later because we both thought that the other probably had a gf/bf and wouldn't be interested in us.

    Another online romance here. He found my website and sent me an email. We started chatting and a year later we were married.
    Stop trying to organize all of your family’s crap. If organization worked for you, you’d have rocked it by now. It’s time to ditch stuff and de-crapify your world.

    If you're not using the stuff in your home, get rid of it. You're not going to start using it more by shoving it into a closet.

    Use it up, Wear it out,
    Make it do, Or do without. ~unknown

    Because we, the people, have the power to build a better future. KH

    DH & I met kind of similar way. I put an ad in the newspaper! You know one of those "looking for friendship maybe more" things. Yep, my BF & I had way too much wine that night! LOL

    One month later, we were talking on the phone on a daily basis. Met 11/85 and married 2/86, truely love at first sight! To this day, we both said that God knew what we both needed. And He definately knew how well suited we are for each other.

    And yep, would trade a minute of it for anything....well maybe the rocky times. LOL

    Let's see. . . first time we met. . .we were infants. My grandmother and his parents lived next door to each other. . . they'd change our diapers together, and laugh about how we'd grow up and get married. . . then my grandmother moved, and eventually his family moved away too.

    Fast forward to HS - summer camp. . . I'd been injured and had just had a halo brace removed from my head. . barely walking with crutches. He was dating one of my friends, and she introduced us. He thought I looked like something the dog had chewed up and left for dead, I thought he was a geek.

    I never saw him again till 2nd year of college - I was late for a meeting and ran down a ramp. . . came around the corner at the bottom and ran him over - literally, left him on the floor, gasping for air. . . told him if he wanted a proper apology to follow me, other wise "GET OUT OF MY WAY!" He followed me, but I was engaged to another guy - he spent the next 2 years convincing me to ditch my fiance and date him.

    Once we decided to get married, we were at his parent's house, filling out the engagement notices. . . Mr. & Mrs. Marvin XXXX announce the engagement of their daughter - and BOOM, his mom passes out. That the first inkling she had that the baby on the table, was the same girl - 20+ years later!

    We've been married 28 1/2 years.

    (Interpreting your subject line in gender-neutral terms... )

    I met DW on top of this mountain:
    Well, not technically on top, but on the way up. I had been a member of the hiking club for a few years, and she was a brand-new member. I thought she looked pretty cute, and I admired her spunkiness in trying a challenging mountain on one of her first trips with the club. (It's not as bad as it looks: there's a trail around the back that doesn't involve ropes, though it is still pretty challenging.)

    We went on several more club hiking trips together. Since I had a car and she didn't, and we lived only a few blocks apart, she asked me if I'd drive her to club meetings. Then she wanted to go to an evening concert in the park, but wanted an escort, since returning home would involve walking through dodgy parts of town in the dark. We talked a lot at that concert, and got to know each other a lot better. Things kind of developed from there.

    I met DH through a sorority sister who was in a freshman orientation group with him. We are both mouthy, opinionated people and did not get along at first! Things clicked better for us two years later, which was when we actually started dating. Four years after that, we were married :-D

    Hmmm....well, being the "wild child" that I was, I had managed to get into a rock club (I was under age). It wasn't very busy at first & I saw this rock star-looking guy playing video games. After awhile, he disappeared upstairs (the place had bars both up & downstairs). Out of curiosity, I also went upstairs & found that he was a bartender. I asked a waitress what his name was & she told me. I just had to talk to this guy, so I went up & asked him "do you have a cigareete John?". He said, no, I'm sorry, I don't, but I can get you one (which he did) and as I said my thanks & started to walk away, he said "Hey! how did you know my name?"....I ignored him (on purpose) & he actually jumped over the bar & followed me...bugging me until I finally told him that one of the waitresses told me. We went back to the bar he was working & I sat there & we talked the rest of the night (between him taking care of customers). The weirdest thing happened that night...I was about to ask him what he was doing after work (was going to ask him to go to breakfast w/me) - a split second later....he asked me to go to breakfast w/him.lol
    After breakfast & more conversation, we took a drive out to the beach...it was about 3:30-4:00am. He had a little opal GT...& it got stuck in the sand. He was going to push the car out while I tried to steer....little did he know that I only knew how to drive an automatic-....& w/ that, I just buried the car deeper.So...we switched places & I pushed the car out of the sand while he steered. I felt like a real dope.lol. I was 18 & he was 23.
