How did you meet your significant other? - Page 2

post #31 of 57
Met my DH at work. I was his supervisor I remember the first day he was there I seen the HR manager showing him around the plant. I was talking to 2 of the machine operators and literally told them to move when he walked by so I could get a better look. I fell in love with his blue eyes immediatly .After his training we put him on 3rd shift and all I saw was his paperwork for 3 months. Always thought about him when I got his runsheets and wondered what he was doing.
He ended up going to my mom (she was supervisor in another dept) and giving her his phone number saying I was all he thought about and he wanted to see if I would be interested in a date.
We ended up going out on Valentines Day and we have been together since.

My gosh! These stores are all so cute I'm geflempt

Chalk another one up for Myspace.com

A little over two years ago I moved to Florida to take a job. I didn't know anyone here... heck, I had never even heard of this town before. So I started hanging out on online dating sites and myspace and things just to see if I could meet *anyone* here with similar interests. Just, you know, a couple of people to grab a beer with or something so I wasn't sitting home alone all the time.

So one day, while browsing people in my area, I found this guy who lived in the next town and, well I think Julia said it best when she said

Quote:
I saw this guy with this GORGEOUS long dark hair. I mean, we're talking Pantene, shiny, glossy hair comercial hair. I was so impressed to see a guy with such beautiful, cared for hair!
Well, except his was a dirty blonde... but she hit the nail on the head! And I'm such a sucker for guys with long hair...and his was probably about midback length.

Anyway... I started looking into his music and movie tastes and thought "hmm he might be cool to hang out with", so I emailed him. The entire email was two words: "Nice hair"

Well we ended up chatting on AIM about prog rock and comedians and weird 80s movies and things. Met at Barnes & Noble for coffee the next day and we've been inseperable ever since. In exactly one week from today it will be two years. We just bought a house together and have a bunch of furkids. He was a cat person when I first met him, but after meeting Karma and Buddha he became a dog person too We're not married, but at the "might as well be" stage. His parents are mom and dad to me. His sister refers to me as her SIL. Sort of married without having gotten around to that whole pesky wedding thing

Wanna hear my story? Jerry and I had both started a new job at the same time in a factory. There was this horrible and (ugly!) guy who wouldn't quit harrassing me. This went on for a couple weeks and the bosses wouldn't do anything about it. Needless to say I was pretty frustrated. I sat on this picnic table everyday. Me and a few of the guys would shoot the breeze. One day this really cute guy started sitting with us. he was older than me and, I couldn't help but be inticed by him. I had an old car I was gonna sell for 300$$. But, he needed a car and so I told him he could have it for 150. Don't ask me why. That was on a Wednesday. We planned on him coming to look at it Saturday. But, he needed a ride. So, I picked him up on that Thursday, our then buddy Roger said "I think he likes you ."That night when we got off work I asked him if he'd "pretend" to be my boyfriend to get that guy off my back. He said ok. "(I thought it was clever) Saturday came and I went and picked him up. He came looked at my car, and we clicked instantly. After we got his car home we drank a 12 pack of bud and talked for hours.I asked my mom to watch my girls and went back to his house. I kidnapped him and went home. I looked at my mom and said "can I keep him please?" he hasn't been back since. They say you know when you will meet the one, and I did. No thinking about it for me. It changed my life, and my daughters. It's like the Brad Paisley song says We went from something is missing, to being a family.

How I meet my bf, Chris, is when I gave up totally on dating. Two years before I was engaged and ended it, got tired of dating a verbally abusive momma boy. So I was done with relationships.

But through hearing how Chris treated my best friend Brat, when her and her bf got into spat, it reminded me that, that was the kinda guy that I wanted in my life. But I reminded myself I was done with relationships.

The day that I found out my parents were splitting, I went over to Brats to cry, shout, and scream. Later after I cooled we got talking about relationships and I meantioned how I was interested in Chris. Well, Brats boyfriend came over and gave me Chris's number, but i wasn't going to call because I am/was shy and was use to rejection. So Brat grabbed my phone and dialed his number and I grabbed the phone back and hung it up. Finally her bf called him and asked him if he was looking for a gf. Well, Brats bf handed me the phone and we ended up talking for an hour and set up to meet between college classes at the mall.

The day we meet at the mall was like a dream come true. OH YEAH!!! we knew each other in high school too, but he was one of those guys that had pop bottle classes, tall and lanky. But at the mall, I saw a side to him that made me see him in a whole new light. After the mall I was walking on cloud nine.

We ended up talking everyday on the phone and he kept asking me if I would date him, I said no not till I got to know him better, and that I wasn't ready to date. But he stuck around and waited it out.

We finally went on a double date with Brat and her bf, and that night well him sitting on the couch and me laying along his legs, he asked me to be his gf. I said yes.

I found a few months later, that he had, had a crush on me all through high school and wanted to date me back than. Thank god he didn't, because I was messed up.

This Dec 4, will be two years of dating, and not one single fight, not one break up or break from the relationship. The amazing thing is that I get along with his family and he gets along with my family, minus my mother (that's a different sad story.)

And when we started to date we were up front about everything. From kids to how the money should be bugeted.

We love each other, and NEVER EVER thought we would date again, we had both given up on relationships. But since dating it has been a dream come true. We hope to be engaged this year and married next year, and the year after that start trying to have kids.

We talk everyday on phone, he even calls to say I love you, just to say it or texts it. He LOVES my cats, minus Evil One.

So, believe me if love found me , it will find you. Just give up and wait for it to crash into you.

lol can i blame it on being bored?

couple of day before xmas i was working a ton over time, and was bored silly. SOOOO i started searching for people on yahoo in places that i had never been before. I said hi to a person, turned out to be young women(itta) just out of college and working for a web company. Well we kept talking, At the time i had a gf of 4 years.
several months later thanks to her family pressure we broke up. Well i kept talking to itta more to keep us both busy at work when we had time.

After 3 years of internet chat on yahoo i noticed that she would get upset and go away for a day or 2 if i told her about a date or something. well i was planning on taking a trip to china to see the great wall(lol i had lived in hong kong for 3 years and was never able to go see it) Well itta said that she thought it was time we saw each other face to face, and if i did not come she did not think she would be able to keep talking to me(yes i gave in to blackmail) SO i found myself on a plane out of hong kong on the wy to indonesia to meet someone that at the time i did not know if they even spoke english(no i had never spoken to her on the phone). The only think that i knew about about indo was there was a temple there i would like to see, and that according to US news they did not like americans.

Well, my 3 weeks vaction(only planned on staying 1) turned into 5 month stay.
long first date?

we got married a year later in thailand, but the marriage is not legal in her country(no mixed marraiges allowed) , and US said we did the paper work wrong so The US also does not see us as being married. We plan on getting married here in ohio next month.

hmm if we count chat time, 8 years, 4 now in person 3 married i think, but heck i am a guy i dont keep track of that stuff,

Unknown to me my friend gave my yahoo id to Gil, someone she's known for 6 years. I was furious with her when he popped up to say hello because i'm careful who i give my id to.

I've forgave her now though because it's the best thing she's ever done and Gil and i have been together now for over 8 months

I met Lee because he was friends with my ex. We would hang out all the time whenever we would go out to eat or to a friends house to play pool. When I found out my ex was cheating on me he was really the one I cried to. One thing let to another and here we are 3 1/2 years later, we have built a wonderful home together and are getting ready to get engaged (hopefully) and talking about being a family together.

It will all work out for you! Love will show up in an unexpected place!!

I echo the sentiment that love will find you when you're not looking!

I met my hubby in Scotland when I'd just finished at a really difficult job and I'd given myself a couple of weeks holiday. On the Isle of Skye I was hanging out at a hostel when this "loud American tourist" came in and started chatting to everyone while I was trying to watch Star Trek. How rude! Anyways, we got to talking and talking. I found out he was actually Canadian and a very sweet man. He had a little car he was travelling round Scotland in, so I hitched a ride and never looked back!

Gosh...where do I start? *lol*

Last July, I started a new job & was excited about the new possiblities of having a good social life. My previous job worked me like a dog & even though I attempted dating, it was nearly impossible with my job. I had been on a few Dating Sites but the men were just not my type. Quality over Quantity! Well, I was ready to give up with the online thing when I received an "icebreaker" on my Yahoo Personals Ad. Now, I had strict rules when it came to online dating. If you don't have a pic, then I don't look at your profile. I know it sounds harsh, but I had been burned badly with this one & I wasn't taking any chances. Sure enough, the icebreaker didn't have a picture. I checked the box to deleted it but something told me to look at it. What did I have to lose? So, I opened it & thought I'd look at this profile. I was amazed with what I had found. His words were as if I had wrote them. His sense of humor poured out in his words & he literally had me laughing out loud when I read it. Also, hidden in his profile he had a couple pictures & he was incredibly handsome! So, I decided to send him an icebreaker back. Nearly instantly, I received an email. We shot emails back & forth through out the next day. Later that night, we decided to talk on the phone. I found that he went to College right across the street from where I lived, he grew up & lived only blocks away & we frequented the same places. I couldn't believe that I hadn't seen him before! We decided to meet at a local coffee shop on Sunday afternoon & I was completely hooked. We ended up going out to dinner the next night & again a couple nights later. After that, we couldn't get enough of each other. A month later, we were talking about how great things are going & he looked me in the eye with tears welling up and told me that he thought he was falling in love with me. I had been feeling the same but was afraid that I had mistaken lust for love.

It was love after all & I could never ask for anything better. Next Monday we will celebrate our first year together since that was the date of our first meeting. Also, we just moved in together last week & have plans to get engaged after he graduates from school next Spring. Big Plans for this relationship!

I have to add, my husband had long hair also when we met
I too am a sucker for men w/long hair... I think it's the "bad boy" thing
Too bad a year and half later he had to cut it off for a job
I wouldn't let him go to a barber to cut it.. I did it myself... I still have the ponytail

Thats what I did!
Deacon my 4 yr old also had long hair and curls just like him. When he was almost 3 we cut his also. Justice was 3 and had long hair and we cut... So both my boys and DH's ponytails are in my keepsake box at my moms!

This is going to sound corny but my husband and I were high school sweethearts.

I was a freshmen and he was a sophomore. I was standing in Algebra class talking to someone about our school pictures (which we just got back) and he walked up to me and asked for my picture. At first I thought he was crazy and did not respond to him (I was also very shy back then). Well, after a week of think about it and I decided to give him a picture on which I wrote. "To a nice guy, can wait to be friends with you." After that we were passing notes back and forth in class and talking between classes we were not serious. Things did not get serious until after christmas time because I was kind of into this other guy but for christmas he gave me a box of chocolate covered cherries (which is do not like) and my husband gave me a teddy bear (which I loved and still have). The other thing that clinched the deal was I got really sick and was out of school for two weeks after christmas and the boy I like did not even call me once, even when a friend of mine asked him why he did not call me. But the who whole time I was sick my husband called me everyday to see how I was doing. So as soon as I got back to school I told the other guy that I did not want to have anything to do with him anymore and then started dating my husband. We have been together for 21 years now.

I believe love is out there and God will let you know who is right for you.

I met my bf through It's Just Lunch - a matchmaking service that sets you up on blind dates. It costs $1,500 but I think it was so worth it since this guy and I are crazy about each other and decided on our 2nd date that we want to get married (but we're going to wait a few months before actually getting engaged)

Good luck!

I met my husband in high school when I was 16...we ran outdoor track together and had mutual friends. We were both dating other people all through college (we went to different schools) but we stayed friends. Then we started dating when I was 21 and we were both out of college and single! 2 years after that we got married!

Once upon a time a long time ago I was in the military, serving on a ship out of Boston, Massachusetts. One casual Saturday afternoon my ship was in port, which was rarely the case, and I was enjoying a cup of coffee. Suddenly into the wardroom bursts a shipmate in an obvious state of panic.

"Jim, I need help -- badly. I have a date tonight, and I just got a call from my fiancee. She is arriving in a couple of hours, with no advance warning. Can you help me out? I will pay for dinner for you and Ann if you will fill in for me after I come down with a bad cold. She is really a nice girl."

What could I do? A shipmate in distress. The Code of the Sea demanded that I come to his assistance.

Ann and I had that dinner, at a very costly high scale restaurant at my shipmate's expense. Since Ann will not let me date this incident for you, I will only say that after dinner we attended the Boston premiere of the great "South Pacific," starring Mitzi Gaynor and Rossano Brazzi.

After the movie I carried Ann across the muddy Boston Common to her dorm in a downpour. The Sir Walter Raleigh stunt did it. Ann and I celebrated our 47th anniversary last month.

Good cheer to all, and may you be as blessed in your marriage as we have been.

Jim

Oh my gosh, I practically hyperventilate at the thought of my fiancé cutting his hair short! I think if he did it and didn't tell me about it, I wouldn't recognize him when I next saw him! I would probably save it as well.

I met my now husband David, in the widow/widowers chatroom on AOL. On Sept 1, 1996 my first husband Bob was killed in a boat accident on Saratoga Lake in NY. He as 42 years old. I was 31. After a while my sis in law told me about this chatroom for widows/widowers so I bought a computer and got on there and it was a huge part of me healing, eventually helping people who were more newly widowed than I was. To make a long story short I eventually met David on there and his first wife died the same year of Colon cancer, After talking online for a few months we decided to talk on the phone and then we talked everyday for hours and hours. He had this sweet southern accent that just killed me. Eventually he flew to NY in August of 97 and we already were in love by then, we got married on February 14, 1998 in Puerto Rico, he planned the whole thing! We have been happily married ever since living in KY with our fur babies. the best thing David was a dog person until he met my Bella and fell in love with her now he's all about cats!!

Mine did too! But he donated the hair to Locks of Love, so I suppose I can get over it.




Who am I kidding? No I can't!

The pricetag weeds out at least some of the crazies and undesirables, I should think!
