How did you meet your SO? - Page 2

post #31 of 45
I met my hubby spring of 2002 at work (me an aide for disturbed children, him a social worker). At the time I had a cast on my right foot so I filled the "helpless girl needs big strong man" role, and it worked!

We married in April of 05, still newly weds.

dont judge me too harshly, but he was with my best friend 4 a week and then saw a pic of me and dumped her. 2 years later and we're still happier than ever! And when we met we just clicked so I didnt have any guilt.

post #34 of 45
I had just broken up with a boyfriend, and he had just broken up with a girlfriend. My best friend and his sister who were friends (and I had met his sister a number of times) got together and decided that they should get us together because they felt we would be perfect for each other. They invited us both out for an evening - neither one of us knew it was a set-up. I figured it out first, and didn't want anything to do with him - that lasted about 3 days (he was persistent once he met me - never knew it was a set-up till later)! That was 22 years ago and we've been together ever since!

I met my SO at the dam where everyone went to hang out and drink on Sunday afternoons. I knew this old biker that let this young guy hang around with him because he could help him push his bike. They were there, and he decided that the young guy and I would be perfect for each other, even though I was in a very bad relationship. He was 5 years younger than me, and that was a much bigger difference at 16, and 21. He told me within minutes of meeting tht I was the only woman for him, and one day I would figure it out. I'm just glad he would still be my friend for the next 6 years, and was still interested when I finally came to my senses and figured out he was the only one for me. We have been happily unmarried for almost 22 years.

I walked into a restaurant that Jim was working at and asked him about a job, he told me to write my name, # and measurements on a piece of paper. I thought he was so cheesy that I busted out laughing and couldnt stop laughing and telling him how corny he was he has never left me alone since that was 20 years ago.

We were atypical highschool sweethearts (long cycle of breaking up and getting back together ). When I finally broke up with him in college, we finally started going back to church, got straightened out, got back together for good ,and we'll be married 15 years in May ("together" 21 years in Feb ).

A mutual friend of ours set us up. I didnt realize it though. I didnt really like him that much until he started talking about his goats and then I started paying him more attention. Gave him my number and after a month of just talking we started dating.

Ahh of course the goats get you every time
With me, I split up from my last bf just before my last 2 years of school (6th form). I was determined to enjoy being single. In my first ever lesson I met this ginger haired guy in a celtics top who I had a 'minor disagreement' with, and 1 month later I had another bf and its been great ever since.
Even though a week after we started going out I managed to offend a friend of his to the point that she only now says hi to the two of us. And she may not have realised who we were before she said it.
Good thing he likes outspoken girls

awwww... I love the relationship you have with trout. We're still hoping to find our own friendly cat.

My husband and I met at work a year before we actually started dating. We worked different shifts, and one night he worked my shift. What caught my attention most was how much he HELPED us. We were lowly nursing assistants and he was the all-important nurse, and he actually got up and got dirty with us in the trenches. After that, I knew I just HAD to get to know this man better! A year after that we got married. Now 5 years and 4 kids later, we're happier than ever!!!

(That's the short version.)

I did not realize you just hopped a plant and went, after talking online... Good deal.

We met on a blind date arranged by a mutual friend. I swore I would never get fixed up on a blind date but she gave him my phone number before she told me about it. That was some 30 yrs. ago so I guess the moral of the story is you never know just who you'll meet on a blind date!

I met Jen through Match.com and I think Date.com. She had profiles on each site and I wrote to her twice not realizing it. We talked off and on for a few weeks and then finally met. Been together ever since

I met my husband in a karaoke bar. I thought he was someone I knew but I was wrong. I was actually dating someone else when we met. The person I was dating and I did not have the same taste in bars. He liked dance clubs and I was into karaoke. When Tim and I met we just started talking and spending time together because he was always at the bar when I was there. We became really good friends and then started dating. I ended my previous relationship because I had been with the guy for three years and we were more like roomates than girlfriend and boyfriend.

Tim and I moved into together in 1997 and got married on June 30, 2001. We met in 1995. We have been happily married since 2001.
