I was working as a National Guard recruiter at a National Guard armory on Camp Dodge. I turned a corner and he was standing there. He was so handsome he took my breath away but I thought that he had to have a girlfriend so I didn't approach him. We flirted over the next few months until I had the guts to ask him over. We've been together ever since.
I meet my dh the first night we worked together bartending. I had a customer who wouldn't leave me alone about going out with him after the bar closed, so I asked my dh if he would switch sides of the bar so I wouldn't have to wait on the guy anymore. He agreed, and asked me to get some coffee with him after work. I did, we sat there for over 4 hours talking and the rest is history! We have been married for over 12 years, 3 daughters, 2 dogs, ect...
We met while we were both working at the local golf course in the dining room...we were high school sweethearts...married after we graduated college...he is now the Superintendent (head greenskeeper) at that same golf course....
we used to work together and started in the same training class, i disliked him instantly! we both left that job but kept in touch with a mutal friend and magically we started talking to each other next thing i know we are married and have a kid.
I met dh at the bank we both worked at. I didn't really like him until our second date. We got engaged 6 months later and we've been married now for almost 14 years!! Everyone thought I was out of my mind--I had just turned 21 when we got married. I'm glad I didn't listen to others!
9th grade. We had some mutual friends but never met before. I was talking to one of our friends at lunch and he saw his chance to talk to me. On his way over, a jerk ex-friend of his hit him right in the junk with a hackey sack. He hit the ground hard. I helped him up. We started dating the next week, got married 3 years later.
My husband was also a Marine :usa: when I met him. We actually met at a bar through mutual friends when we were 21. I had noticed him coming into the bar with our friends and I instantly fell in love and knew he had to be the one for me (of course, the Dress Blues he had on helped! lol ).
The best he and I can figure, we have met 3 times. First when we were around seven or eight, I would spend the night w/my mom's best friend and her two boys. He lived down the street and went to school with the boys. He would come up and play with them and that was how we first met. Although we never really talked to each other that we can remember.
Fast forward to 1988 spring of 9th grade. I worked at the miniature golf course w/my boyfriend, Derek. Chris (DH) came in to our work to see Derek (they were on the same HS football team)and get a free ice cream from the snack area. We barely spoke that day.
Speed up time to October of that same year, we doubled dated. He went out with my best friend and I was out with Derek. A year later in October 1989, we had our first date and have been together since.
We met on a blind date and have been together ever since. I was almost 16 and he was 18. I can't imagine my life without him! He's a wonderful hubby, Dad and Poppy to our grandkids. We've been married for 35Yrs.:cheer4:
