    Wow brings back memories. I originally saw my dh at a high school dance. I asked him to dance on a โ€œladies choiceโ€ dance and he turned me down. A few years later we met at a work party and found out we both worked in the same building. He didnโ€™t remember the high school dance but I sure did. We started dating and got married 3 years later.

    I met my husband in Japan when we were both serving missions for our church. We didn’t fall in love there, but after we got back and I attended BYU we did everything together and fell in love! Our 22nd anniversary is this Tuesday! Thanks for the chance to win!

    We met in high school ! We were classmates but we didn’t connect that way till after college. We were both unattached at that time and reconnected. It was one of the best moments of our lives.

    I met my husband when I had the wild idea to take golf lessons. He was the golf pro who returned my call when I called the Club to schedule a lesson. It was love at first sight, only my husband didn’t realize it for a few months. LOL

    Well, it’s such a romantic story…not. I met my wonderful husband in a bar in Seoul, South Korea. He’s in the Army and was stationed there at the time and I was teaching English in Korea. We met in the bar and most of our dates were in bars. One to tell the grandchildren!

    Barbara Hale says:

    I’m afraid I don’t have a very romantic or unique story. I met my husband at work. I was very impressed with how kind he was to everyone he encountered. And since it was in a License Branch, that in itself is really amazing.

    I met mine at work and he is a true gem (in the rough of course).

    Looking forward to making some great Valentines this year. Can’t wait to enjoy the new raspberry fizz, what a perfect shade of pink! Love it!

    I was actually set up on a blind date with my husband’s brother. We were friends, but nothing more. When my husband came back from overseas, his brother thought we’d make a good match and introduced us. That was nearly 10 years ago, and here we are 4 kids later! ๐Ÿ™‚

    My father was in Amsterdam, lost, and asked my mom for directions. He was in the Air Force and she is Dutch. Later he asked her out for a meal…. Wow, it sounds so much better when they tell it, heeheehee.

    We met in college – dated briefly, broke up and then reconnected 5 years later at the wedding of mutual friends. Became friends and eventually dated again after 2 years of friendship. Have now been married for over 4 years. My husband was sure I was going to be his wife back in college – it just took me 7 years to realize it. LOL

    Actually, I worked at K-Mart, in the automotive section, and he was riding a skateboard through the aisles! Yes, a grown man on a skateboard – he sure caught my attention, and still does after 31 years of marriage! Thanks for reminding me and also for a chance to win!

    In college, I moved in to an apartment down the street from my husband, and one night we had a party. Glen fell asleep on the couch, and I wondered who that knucklehead was. Ahh, so romantic.

    mcbetty says:

    Met him where he went to college. I taught in h.s. on the same campus — stopped for a beer and socialization at the college rathskellar almost every afternoon. My bff was also a teacher, her DH a student. They got us together … took him a year to get up the nerve to ask me out, and finally he did after BFF called him “chicken.”

    I met my husband while I was out one night for drinks and dancing. At that tim I thought I was just ready to stay single for a while and just have time for me. Well, I met him on the dance floor, wwhere we did the Cha Cha Slide. He was so polite and interesting. I gave him my number. He accidently entered wrong on his cell phone. Luckily, after I left, my brother corrected it for him. He called the next day and I invited him over for dinner. He came over for spaghetti and he was hooked after that.

    Believe it or not, we met on the internet. We lived about 1,200 miles away from each other. We became friends, met in person a year later and then after a year of flying back and forth, he proposed. We met 10 years ago and have been married for 5. It’s crazy to think how easily I may have never met him. I’m lucky!

    I met my husband when my mom remarried and we moved from the city to the country. I had to now ride a school bus which I thought was pretty cool, and this good looking guy asked the new girl to sit with him. That was in 1973, and here we are 35 years later and still madly in love……. I LOVE our story!

    Allison F says:

    My fiance and I actually went to high school together but he was dating my best friend at the time and he and I really didn’t like each other at all. After our first year of university we started dating and now, seven years later, we’re getting married in May!

    Jacki says:

    My dh and I met at a church retreat during 10th grade. He said it was love at first sight for him but I didn’t notice him in that way until 6 years later. Then it was me who pursued him, not that he made it hard for me! He told his family in high school that he was going to marry me. If only I had been the wiser then….we’d have been together a lot longer.

    Karen A says:

    I met my true love at a friend’s house. We were assigned overseas at a remote location and the local “club” was closed for renovations, so people took turns having get-togethers. I was dating someone else at the time so for awhile we were just friends, but eventally it blossomed into something more. Unfortuantely not a happily-ever-after story, but he’s still my true love.

  • 25
    Jessica says:

    5 years ago to be exact. My husband and I met on a Mission trip in Dominican Republic (out of all places) **wink** Anyhow we dated for for 2 years and decided we wanted to spend the rest of our lives together.

    Emily says:

    I met my husband Sam when he was working for my parents. My parents were building a new house, mostly by themselves, but my Sam was doing some of the work for them. My dad and Sam had known each other for years. I saw him a lot when he was working, and he ate dinner with us sometimes, and we became really good friends. He was such a sweetie, it wasn’t hard to fall head over heals in love with him! He is 3 1/2 years older than me, which my parents weren’t happy about at first, since I was only 15. They eventually came around though. We started dating in 2000, and got married in 2003 =). Thanks for the chance to win!

    SusanH says:

    Well, I don’t have one, yet! And my parents “met” because my Mom lived across the street from an elementary school and looked out and saw my Dad driving a school bus – then she started asking around about him! Next thing you know, they’re dating!!

  • 28
    Maureen W. says:

    I met my DH because the people we worked for at the time shared office space. He was married then so we just started as friends, but then he got separated and divorced and I think it was because we were meant to be together!!

    Sandy Kay says:

    I was a secretary for a furniture company and I picked up the mail every day. A certain clerk was watching me all the while and I never noticed! He got up enough courage to ask me out and I took a chance and said yes. (Back in the day a postal worker was highly respected) ANyway, we’ve been married 35 years now!

    Banu says:

    Our parents introduced and we talked over the phone a lot. We felt the spark when we met for the first time and knew we were meant for each other. And without us knowing our paths had crossed many times before we met each other. It was indeed fate and we have been happily married since. It will be our 10th wedding anniversary in March 09.

    Stephi D. says:

    I met my true love at a friends barbecue, he thought it was for their 4 yr old daughter, which in reality it was for a mutual friend who was turning 21. My true love showed up with this little peanuts fishing pole and tackle box. I fell in love with him then and he hasn’t changed a bit.

  • 32
    rebecca.k says:

    We met through mutual friends. We didn’t really like each other when we first met, so we never gave each other much thought. Then we saw each other at our friend’s wedding a couple of years later and the rest is history, as they say. Nine years and two kids later, we’re still as smitten as that night at the wedding.

    Carey Miller says:

    Haha. I went to get my car fixed and he was the assistant service manager. He got it fixed under warranty, despite it being a little iffy. I invited him out…without realizing he was only 20 (I was 23) and couldn’t get into the bar I was going to be at. When I went to pick up my car, I asked why he never showed and he told me about the age thing. Had NO interest in him after that, but couldn’t say so. Told him he should show up anyway and I’d get him in. He did. And kept hanging around until I changed my mind and started dating him. That was 11 years ago.

    I met my DH when I was 38 (I’m 42 now). I had never been married and one day met this wonderful man at Starbucks. He was a grande caramel machiatto and I was a grande nonfat latte. We started talking in the line up and the rest is history ๐Ÿ™‚ He was worth waiting 20 years for!!

    At work. I went in to apply and he was there…he offered me a Swedish Fish. It was certainly “something” at first sight!

    Lee Cockrum says:

    I put a personal ad on the internet. That was in 2000, so that was when most internet dating stuff was free. We emailed a bit, talked on the phone for 7 hours the first time we spoke, and we knew this might be “IT” after that phone call. We dated for the next three years, there was a rough patch late in that time, and then he got it together, asked me to marry him, and we got married 3 months later! January is our 6 year anniversary.

    Robin McCormack says:

    Contrary to popular belief – you can meet a GREAT guy in a bar (I was a bartender and he was a customer – so at least one of us did not have on beer goggles).

    Possibly not the most romantic love story – but we have lasted over 20 years & three kids!!!

    Donelda says:

    My sweetie was actually my next door neighbor when I went to University. He had come over to “meet one of the girls” from next door and spilled beer all over my blanket. I was trying to read and get some sun … and he was making it very difficult to do. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I met my DH on Match.com. The best darn $25 I’ve EVER spent (it was a 3-month trial special). DH said he typically never clicks on pop-up windows but one did for Match.com and he thought “What the heck!” and joined. I sent him a wink and he replied back to me. Our first date was 11/1/03, we were engaged 8/21/04 and married 7/23/05. ๐Ÿ˜€

    Maria M says:

    If there is such thing as love at first sight, is there such as thing if the first sight is from a picture??? I met and fell in love with my now husband in college, The University of Chicago. I saw his picture up on the wall of a fellow student in our dormitory. I naturally thought that it was her boyfriend but she said no….just her best friend. She was surprised that I had not met him yet as he had stopped by the dorm every night that week. Later that evening, she introduced us and we just shook hands. Later he returned and lightly rapped at my dorm door and said….”Haven’t we met before?” I thought to myself….what a lame pick up line….I replied “Uh….yes, just a few hours ago.” “No,” he replied, “before that”. I just rolled my eyes. He then invited me for a moonlight walk and a ride on his motorcycle….The rest is history.

    Kimberly says:

    I honestly don’t know when I met my husband for the first time. He was just always around. His roommate and my roommate dated in college. We were even neighbors at one point. We saw each other about a week before our roommate’s wedding. We were both in it and started dating the night of the wedding. 3 months later we were engaged, 9 months later, we were married!
    I do have to say that I am a very blessed woman and I love my husband more every day!

    Steph K says:

    I met my husband at work. I interviewed him for a job in the group that I worked in and thought he was a little obnoxious (I kept wanting to snap his suspenders, too). We ended up hiring him and we became friends and started dating 7 mos later!

    I met my husband the third day of my first job. I was teaching in a residential treatment center, and he arrived as my aide. I was feeling overwhelmed, and the sight of this good-looking guy did nothing to relieve my anxiety! Thirty-five years later, he’s still really good-looking and his arrival that day was the best thing that ever happened to me.

    Teresa says:

    I wish I was writing about how my husband and I met. (I’m 35 and still waiting for prince charming….) My parents met on a blind date. My mom was told he was 28, rich and good looking. Well mom found out he wasn’t 28 but rather 31 (she’s was 21 at the time) and he certainly wasn’t rich. But he was good looking and she thought 1 out of 3 wasn’t bad so she married him. They’ve been married now for 39 years this past November!

    I met my hubby on a company “fishing” trip on Lake Erie. He came as a co-worker’s guest. Everybody knew what was going on except me and Doug. We sat together on a boat and fished all day. He even took a hook out of my finger. (No kidding).
    The rest is history…..we have been married now for 6 years…..He is definately my Prince!!

    I met my true love, now my husband, on a hike with the Sierra Club – the 21-35 singles group in Southern California. I liked him right away and actually asked him out first! From that weekend on we did some activity or another with the Sierra club group almost every weekend until we got married – 18 months later. The only problem was we couldn’t go with the 21-35 Singles anymore!! We have been married for 27 years!

    I hope the man I am married to is my true love or I am missing out! LOL! Just kidding! My hubby and I lived 15 minutes apart frequented the same places but met…….online! I joined a personals group as a dare and wound up meeting my hubby! It was great because we e-mailed and talked on the phone for awhile before meeting in person, not to mention asking everyone I knew about him and him running a background check on me (he’s a police officer) so it really relieved a lot of that first date tension. He says he knew I was the one the first time he saw me! How sweet is that! It took me a little longer! Not much though. We were married less than a year after we met!

    We met by accident one night. My (now)husband had just returned from his tour in the Army in Germany, and was with a guy friend of mine that we bumped into one Sunday afternoon. I was with a girlfriend of mine. Thank goodness the right one asked me out!

    A month later we were engaged. Four months later, we were married. And nine months after that, our first son was born.

    It’s been 40 years now, and I love him more every day! I’m so lucky to still be living my very own love story.

    (We have 10 grandchildren, and #11 is due in June.) I believe that will be the end. :-), Not bad with only 3 kids!

    Danielle G. says:

    My husband and I met the summer of 1999 while working at a resort during our summer break. We had to go back to separate schools/states at the end of the summer, but after one semester, he transfered to attend my college. The rest, as they say, is history!

  • 70
    Kristin says:

    Long story short (promise! lol): In ’93, I met a girl and she and I became best friends. In ’94, she graduated college and her parents sent her to visit me as her gift (she lived in ID, and I lived in TX). I graduated in ’95, so my parents sent me to where she was living (in WA).

    My (now) dh and her were working on a team together in Seattle. He was from OK and she didn’t quite understand his sense of humor. I knew stories and decided (before I met him)that I didn’t like him. By the time I got there they were friends (she neglected to tell me).

    After treating him poorly, he decided he didn’t like me either. But one night on my trip there, he heard me talking about something and decided I was pretty and smart. My friend sent us to a store a couple of days later (even though it was awkward), and before we got back I was smitten.

    My last night in Seattle, we spent about 6-8 hours together just talking. He went home and wrote a letter saying he knew he had met the woman he would marry.

    He gave me that letter on our wedding night (2 years later).

    We’ve been married for 11 1/2 years and I am in love more now than ever!

    I met my true love at work! They always say you shouldn’t date co-workers, but we technically didn’t work “together” so it was ok ๐Ÿ˜‰ We were consulting at the same customer, but on different projects. He would always try to ask me to lunch or stop by my cubicle, but I had a older European boss who would require the team members to eat lunch with him!! It was pretty funny…. I knew he was someone with an amazing heart and soul from the beginning. We have been together over 10 years. I am so happy and lucky to have found him. I am thankful every day that he is in my life!!

    I was 18 when I met my husband. I worked at the local video store and he came in one Friday night looking for a movie that his “usual” store didn’t have in stock. Strange, but I wasn’t suppose to be working that night and he had never set foot in that store before. That was 17 years ago this month!

    My dad & mom met at the local skating rink when my dad literally knocked my mom off her feet. They were both still in high school and with their own separate friends. Both were on the skating floor when my dad accidently ran into my mom and knocked her down. Not hard to believe since my dad is 6’3″ and my mom is 5′. They became a couple and eloped after dad completed boot camp. My aunt & uncle took my mom to LA to meet up with my dad for their special day before dad went overseas.

    Lisa says:

    Here is the โ€œstoryโ€ that we had printed in our wedding programs 8 years ago. It is kind of long, but a fun story…

    Once upon a time in a land called Northridge CA, there lived a young princess. In 1988 she bid goodbye to the king and queen and moved to the land of San Diego, CA to go to college and make her fortune (still waiting for that to happen, LOL!). She made many friends, graduated, and found pleasure in her career as a graphic designer, but wondered if she would ever find her perfect prince.

    On July 4th, 1996, she met a handsome young man who had just left the land of Milwaukee, Wisconsin for a job in San Diego, CA. A few days later, she and one of her royal friends saw the young man at the County Fair. The three happily spent the day together. The royal friend suggested to the princess that the man might be someone special, but the princess though that he would make a good friend instead. Indeed, as the years passed, the princess and the young man did become friends, each experiencing romances with others.

    On day in January 1999, the young man sent an email asking the princess to a movie. Agreeing the princess had a wonderful time and suddenly saw the young man in a new light. As they continued dating, the princess wondered if perhaps her hopes for a prince had been in sight all along.

    On May 5, 2000, the two went on what would become a very special date. With help from his castle-mates, the prince planned an unforgettable evening. He brought the princess a dozen white roses (her favorite), took her to her favorite sushi restaurant (a big deal since he disliked sushi), and brought her to the rose gardens in Balboa Park for a romantic stroll. As they stopped to admire the roses, he got down on one knee and from the rose bed he pulled out a single red rose. He handed it to the princess. She thanks him, but gently scolded him for picking a flower from the public garden.

    He replied, โ€œOpen it.โ€

    โ€œOpen what?โ€ she queried.

    โ€œItโ€™s not a real flower,โ€ he said. โ€œItโ€™s a box.โ€

    Overcome, she handed it back to him and as he opened the box, she saw the sparkle of a diamond ring that rested inside. The prince asked the princess to be his bride and her reply was an emotional, โ€œYes. Yes. Yes!โ€ As he placed the ring on her finger, she heard a rustle in the bushes and saw a great flash of light. Out of the bushes popped one of the princeโ€™s castle-mates, dressed all in black with camera in hand.Across the way stood the princeโ€™s other castle-mate, acting as look out.

    With walkie-talkies in hand, they had successfully completed their part in โ€œOperation Rosebud,โ€ the princeโ€™s pseudo military mission to make his marriage proposal an experience the princess would never forget.

    The prince and princess (and now two little subjects as well) are living happily ever after…

    I met my husband through a friend. I was dating someone else and he was gone that night; Kristi invited me out and I met my hubby! We were really good friends for about 2 years before we started dating…we were both at different colleges and so it wasn’t until after we graduated that we started dating!

    We’re now very happily married with three little kiddies and baby #4 due in 10 weeks:o)

    I met my husband in college. I actually laid eyes on him a whole year BEFORE we started dating. I remember actually seeing him (I don’t think we were introduced) at an intramurals volleyball game. I went home that night (no kidding) and wrote in my diary that I saw this GORGEOUS guy who seemed really funny and nice……but never really gave it anymore thought because I KNEW he was way out of my league and I ASSUMED he was already TAKEN. Well……a year later, guess who kept showing up at my workplace (I was working part time as a cashier) and coming through my checkout line? And now he is my husband, and I still think he is funny, and nice, and GORGEOUS!

    I was a college freshman, on a date with a guy I didn’t know very well. We were sitting on a bench on campus and he was trying to get me to make out with him. I wasn’t very interested. Fortunately, I was saved by another guy walking by. My date, who wasn’t the most suave character, made a total fool of himself by yelling to the other guy, with whom he had gone to high school. The other guy was, of course, my future husband. We became friends, and were part of a big circle of friends all four years I was in college. We finally began dating in the spring of my senior year, and married about a year after I graduated. We’ve known each other for 27 years, and have been married almost 23. If not for my bad date, I might not have met “the one”.

Well mom found out he wasn’t 28 but rather 31 (she’s was 21 at the time) and he certainly wasn’t rich. But he was good looking and she thought 1 out of 3 wasn’t bad so she married him.

    I moved to Charleston, SC, as an older single (mid-thirties) girl to give history tours in the historic downtown of Charleston. I have always scrapbooked and was looking for a Creative Memories consultant. I emailed a couple of people and one emailed me and I gave her my phone number. She called me on the phone and asked me all kinds of questions about how I moved/why and what are my interests. Then out of the blue, she asked my age. I wondered what that had to do with scrapbooking as anybody can do it. So she said on the phone, well I have this brother and you guys seem to have a lot in common. (Mind you I am still just talking on the phone – we had not met in person!) Oh boy, I moved BECAUSE I was single and was perfectly content if not a little lonely for my family back in Indiana. Well, I agreed to scrapbook with her for one day and she finally showed me a picture of her brother! He was so good-looking!! She had us both over to her house to meet and then he called me for a first date. That night when we got back from our date, he asked if I was going to let him meet my cats (I am an animal lover!!). When he came in and got down on the floor to pet the cats, I fell in love with him that instant. We dated 23 months before tying the knot and have been married for 4 years now! I couldn’t be happier. I tell everyone it was a God thing even if his sister did introduce us! So basically I’m married now because I like to scrapbook and stamp!! ;D

    My future DH was walking across campus when I noticed him my first day of college (I thought he was good lookin’!). It took me a few months to find him again and he was dating someone else. The next year we ended up in the theatre together (he behind stage, me on it) and he was STILL dating someone. We became friends quickly and our relationship grew from there. 11 years and 2 kids later, we are still here and he is STILL hot. I love him.

    What a fun question! I was a junior in high school when I went into the local pizza place and spied this cute boy working. Being too shy by myself to say anything, I took my girlfriend the next day with me to check him out. And she knew him! They had gone to elementary school together, so she introduced Keith & I for the first time. Totally mushy…but it was love at first sight! We went out together that night in high school and now we’ve been married for just over 16 years. Keith told me years later that he would have been too shy to ever say anything to me, so good thing I stepped up and took my girlfriend!

    We met at a cocktail party. The party was held at a friend’s house and he wanted me to go out on the deck with him, but I wouldn’t because I’m too afraid of heights and the deck overlooked the city that we now reside in. Looking back, it would have been the end to the perfect evening, but I couldn’t get over my fear of heights to go look out over the city! I only went to the cocktail party on a bet from one of my college friends – she had checked her horoscope for the day and called and convinced me that I had to go to this party because my husband would be there. Seeing how I have no faith in the stuff, I took her dare and went just to prove her wrong. I came home that night and called her in Dallas to tell her that she had won, that I had indeed met my future husband! She may have won the bet, but I got my Edward (for you Twilight fans out there)!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    The release this month “Love Songs” is absolutely perfect for my husband. The reason? Well, we met while he was singing. In 1989, a good friend of mine asked me if I wanted to go hear a friend of theirs sing. Little did any of us know, he was separated from his wife. We met, he wanted to dance with me, but since he was singing and playing the keyboard, he had to sing a song that didn’t need the keyboard. He sang “Lost in the 50’s” and we danced, he asked for my phone number, we dated for about three months and then some problems came up with his wife and kids and he needed to move back home to take care of his two kids. He asked me to give him six months to get things back on track. During that time, we talked, but didn’t see each other. Things didn’t work out the way he thought during those six months, so he told me that I needed to stop waiting for him because he wasn’t sure how long it would take. Four year’s later, I got a phone call on Mother’s Day. It was him! He finally had custody of his children and wanted to see me again. I wasn’t too sure, but he was willing to give me time. After about three weeks, I decided to give it a chance again. Fast forward two years and we got married and combined our families. Suddenly, I had a husband and five children (two of my own). He still sings me love songs and he still dances with me while he sings. He is still the love of my life!

    Our story is kind of funny too. My husband and I were both “between jobs” and working at 7-11, lol. I asked him out and after 15 years and two wonderful sons later we’re still in love! It’s also funny that our wedding anniversay is the 7th day of November or 7/11!

    I met my husband/true love in high school but we didn’t date until college because I was dating one of his best friends. His friend turned out to be a jerk and Matt was there to lift my spirits. He has made me happy since the beginning, and we have been together for 13 years. I think I knew he was forever on our first date.

    I originally met my husband when I was a freshman in college, although he swears he doesn’t remember this encounter! I was working on a group project producing an admissions video for our school. We were having such a difficult time getting the edit machines to play nice and when we finally did, my future-husband whisked in and announced that we were doing it all wrong, hit a few buttons, and viola! We couldn’t get the stupid machines to work again!! (we got a passing grade on the project tho, no thanks to my dh! ๐Ÿ™‚ )Fast forward a year later: he was working at the TV station I was interning at and he asked me out over a game of ping-pong in the break room. After a few years of on-again-off-again, we tied the know eight years ago!

    I answered a personal ad my husband wrote. What makes it even more interesting is his best friends girlfriend from high school ended up being best friends with my grade school best friend after she moved away. His father also worked for my grandfathers best friend so we both feel we were destined to meet.

    My husband and I actually went to the same high school and were in the same graduating class. And yet we never had a single class together and never met during school! We actually met six years later while out on a Friday night. Turns out I had a friend that knew one of his friends and they introduced us offhand as we were all standing around. That was thirteen years ago and I still remember that night. There was something so different about him…he actually looked into my eyes and listened to me as we talked. I wonder if it’s too fanciful to call it love at first sight, but I can’t come up with any other way to describe it! Best part: (brace yourself for the sweetness) we still look at each other the same way.

    I met my husband in grad school. I was in a class that had a group project and we had to get into teams of 5. There were 5 of us who didn’t know anyone else in the class so the teacher teamed us up together. He was the team leader on the team. We ended up going out to celebrate the completion of the project and started dating a little while later.

    We dated for 5 years and were married 7 months ago. =)

    My DH and I met because of a large inflatable 20 foot glow-in-the-dark elephant. Yep, you read that right. His house in University had rented it to advertise their house party. They asked my floor to help guard the elephant overnight from rival houses. We stayed up all night guarding this elephant on a cold November night. At one point my DH ended up sitting beside me on the bench and I offered to share my blanket with him…that was 20 years ago.

    I meet my husband at a friends house. We went to the same high school but I never saw him at school, since he was a woodshop guy and I was into honor classes.

    I was over a friends house and he came in from playing basketball and began playing the piano. I didn’t pay him any attention, but Later that night I got a call that night from our mutal friend asking if it was ok to give out my number. That was 22 years ago, and we have been happily married for 15 years.

    Boy, I had to think back 35 years! Actually, my sister-in-law was my best friend back in the beginning. She was the one that introduced me to my husband.

    Before all the “weird” stuff started happening on the internet… I met my husband there through a mutual friend. He wasn’t a stranger..I knew people that knew him. I had been a single mother for nineteen years, raising three children alone. I told everyone that I would NEVER marry again… But I quickly learned that God had other plans for me. I flew here to Vegas, not knowing a soul, got off the plane and we were an instant hit. I could not have found him on my own if I had looked for miles. He truly, truly is my soul mate. We will soon celebrate our tenth wedding anniversary…

    I met my husband back when home computers were just becoming affordable (anyone remember the dos commands??). He worked in a print shop that was getting into selling computers and I had a computer that needed upgrading. Since I worked 40 hrs a week, I could only get there on Saturdays. After several weeks of talking and seeing how my computer was coming along, I was finally able to bring it home. I realized that the reason for my visits were at an end, and that I would miss him. So I asked him out ๐Ÿ™‚ We celebrated our 14th Anniversary this past October.

    The first time or the second? The first time I met him at work through an aquaintance, but I was unavailable at the time. The second time a really good friend introduced us. He remembered meeting me before, but I didn’t. (I eventually did later after many conversations.) It was sheer coincidence that we met again. So freaky, but knew it was meant to be after the first date. We were married exactly two years after meeting the second time.

    What a great question; I can’t wait to read through all the responses… I met my husband When I was 19 years old and we didn’t like each other! I was visiting his roommate in college (we were friends from a foreign exchange trip during high school)and I thought Chris was a party boy and couldn’t believe all the girls coming to the dorm to see him. I was painfully shy and he thought I was stuck-up! 5 years later my friend was getting married, so I came out for the wedding and Chris was the best man and was put in charge of keeping me company since I was all by myself. He almost didn’t bother, since he remembered how “icy” I was! Thank goodness he did, and I had gained some confidence in the meantime… by the end of the wedding weekend, I KNEW I was going to marry him. 18 months later, we got married and are still madly in love. I am the only person I know who had to go to New Zealand as a 15 year old, to ensure that I would eventually meet my true love (twice). Thanks, PTI… for this walk down memeory lane.

    Although I am 40 and have been married and divorced twice, I am embarassed to say that I do not feel I have met my one true love yet…I am hopeful though!

    My grandparents met later in life..my grandmother had been divorced for a couple of years after her first marriage which was 33 years, and grandpa had been widowed for a couple of years. They were introduced by my great uncle, who grandpa worked for and was good friends with. Since grandma’s brothers approved of him they wanted to line them up. Grandma wasnt sure what to think of him at first, but a romance did blossom after a while…the hardest part was that he lived in California and we were from Utah, so that meant my grandma who I lived with on and off my entire life up to that point, was gone a lot.

    They were married high up in the Uintah Mountains at a family reunion, in between a couple of trees with a pretty pink bow. The wedding cake was hauled up in the old motorhome, and my cousin and I were the bridesmaids, and were both 12 years old.

    Today grandpa is 90 and grandma is 80. She had a knee replacement this past week and is not doing well, and grandpa is scheduled for surgery this Tuesday, after nearly losing him in September…they are so in love and have been such a blessing to me. That is the kind of love that I hope to still find one day, and after seeing them, I know it is still possible!

    Also, if you could say a little prayer for the both of them I would be grateful.

    During my brother’s wedding, my aunt encouraged me to go to an online date site. I was hesitant but did it anyway. I met a lot of different men that were not at all what I was looking for and then there was my husband. I was not interested in him because he had a son and was a recent widower. He wasn’t looking for anybody to date. He said he was looking for a friend. I really didn’t make a big deal about it because he was not at all what I was looking for. One day when I was down to the end of my list, he emailed me and said he was coming down to Phoenix to pick up a friend from the airport. I said sure but again neither of us were interested in each other. I figured meet at Starbucks for a cup of coffee not a big deal. The minute I saw him walking towards me I knew he was the man I would marry. We met in December, got engaged in February, and married in March. Here we are almost 6 years later, 3 biological kids, and one adopted son. I wouldn’t trade my man of God for anything in the world. He is truly a man of God and I am so thankful to God that I met him. I have the best husband in the world. Thanks honey for marrying me!!

    I met my husband in the hospital where I was working. He was in to get his tonsils removed and I did his pre-operative evaluation. We were married less than 4 months later and have recently celebrated our 33 anniversary. He is the love of my life and I am so happy to have found him.

    My husband and I were high school sweethearts. We broke up in college due to the distance, but ended up back in a mutual circle of friends about 5 years later. We knew if we started dating again that would be it – we’d get married… and we did!

    My true love crashed my high school graduation party in ’97. I looked horrible because I had been thrown in the pool and then up pulls a really cute guy. So he struts up and the first words out of his mouth were “Do y’all have any food left, maybe some cookies?”. Nice huh? He comes back with a plate full of cookies and introduces himself as Paco. I had learned while he was inside that his name was Ross. So I decided to make a fool of myself because I didn’t know him and would never see him again, LOL. I responded that my name was Tawana (my name is really Kim). We ended up running into each other all over the place for the next 5 months and finally started dating Nov. of ’97. We still sign our notes to one another from Tawana or Paco ๐Ÿ™‚

    Tamara says:

    I was in university and had been coaching elementary debate as well as participating in university debate competitions. I was asked by a friend to go to a weekend debate camp to teach some workshops to high school students. I went with my friend, and while we were there I met my partner Deron. He was the admin assistant for the provincial debate association that was hosting the workshop. At the end of the first night there was a campfire for all of the staff, instructors, debaters and coaches. As the night wore on the coaches and students went to bed in their cabins. My friend, and Deron’s boss knew that something was kind of going on between me and Deron, so they said they were also going to go to bed. (We found out later they were actually hiding in the bushes to watch what was going on.) Deron and I stayed up late around the campfire. He rubbed my shoulders and we talked until the wee hours. then, we went into the chalet and kept talking until about 4:00am. I had to get up and teach the next morning, but it was worth it! Deron and I lived in different cities, so we “dated” long distance for over a year before we ended up moving to the same city in 2003. We have been together for 7 years.

    My husband and I met in the Marine Corps…..he came to my door @ the barracks one night and asked me if I wanted to go out to eat. I told him that I needed to save money so I’d eat in the chow hall. He said, “That’s a fate worse than death…I want to TAKE you out to dinner, like a, uh….DATE!”

    He didn’t have a driver’s license (didn’t get one ’til after we got married!) so I drove to our first date. 5 hours @ Souplantation in San Diego, CA….sitting on the patio, talking about our childhoods, families (he didn’t WARN me fully about his!), and anything else we could think of to prolong the night. It was WONDERFUL!

    I met my true love at work! I was introduced to him a few weeks after I started working there and within 2 weeks he asked me out to lunch to “get to know each other since we will be working together”. Later that week he asked me to help him with a work related function at night…I wasn’t able to go. The next day he asked me to a hockey game (since he found out that I liked hockey) we hit it off right away. If you ask him, though, that first lunch was a “date”!! We’ve been together for 9 years…married 7 years with 2 beautiful children!

    jaime aldridge says:

    This will probably sound sooo shameless, but I pinched my husband’s butt when he was talking to another girl!! I had the biggest crush on him. He used to hang around with some of my friends, so I knew who he was and thouhgt he was soo cute. I was trying to work up the nerve to talk to him, but he was always surrounded by other girls.(i say girls because we were 19 an 20 back then.) so, one night I finally decided to say hi, but he was talking to some other girl. well, I thought this should get his attention! I just walked past him and pinched his bottom as I did!! He turned around and followed me and we started talking. He hurt his knee that night and had to be off work the next week from it. I was off of college for winter break, so we spent the whole week getting to know each other. I knew that he was the one! We’ve been married for 11 years now. So, I’m very glad that I was so shameless!!!

We’re opposite in many ways, so it was almost two years before we began dating. We just celebrated our 20 year anniversary in November. After all these years, he’s still as decisive, and I’m convinced more than ever that opposites are meant to be together.

    He sat on my hand! No, really!
    Although we we in class together in junior high, we didn’t really “meet” until years later at a party. He asked to sit next to me. When I tried to scoot myself over to make room, he sat on my hand. When I tried to remove it from under his rear end, he started holding it. It was the sweetest, corniest pick up ever. We’ve been together almost 14 years now and have 2 beautiful sons!

    I haven’t met my true love yet. My parents and my grandparents have similar stories. My grandfather was an American soldier during WW2, serving in England where he met my grandmother, a young English lady. They married and moved back to the States after the war. My mother was born an American and decided to move to England for a couple years to teach physical education. (She had spent a lot of time in England during her girlhood visiting her mother’s family) She met my father, who was British, at a party and one thing led to the next! They married and soon moved back to the US and had three daughters. Sadly, neither marriage turned out happily. Therefore, I don’t know if I would ever want to marry a British man; it could either be third time’s the charm, or three strikes you’re out! LOL!

    I met my husband in college, freshman year. We were standing in line at registration – he was a “V” and I was an “S”, so we were fairly close together. We chatted there, then ended up in an “Encounter Group” together (hey, it was the early 70’s!). He asked for my advice on writing a Dostoevsky paper… But alas, I was dating another guy for the first 3 years of college – Jim asked me out about once a year. Finally, by senior year I had broken up with the other guy and was ready to date again, and saw Jim at Chapel on the first day of classes. We both went to Chapel again the next day, hoping to see each other. He asked me out, and as they say, the rest is history! We’ve been happily married for 32 years now and are new grandparents!

    We met in 1984 at the summer pre-college picnic for people who lived far away from where we both ended up going to college. We always say that if we had not run into each other there, we may well never have met… as an engineer and Classics major, we would not have met in classes or whatnot. We dated for 7 years and have been married for 17. ๐Ÿ™‚

    DH and I met as volunteers for Young Life, an organization that works with high school students. We were helpers on a weekend, winter retreat and when we returned, there was an ice storm that knocked out power for more than a week. Since my apartment had no heat I was invited to stay at his folks house. What we thought would be a day stay turned into 6!! It gave us a fun start to our story!

    My Husband and I met in highschool. My BF had a huge crush on “the guy that sat in front of her in English class” She talked about him all the time. I had no idea who he was even though we had mutual friends. Then one day he went walking down the hallway and everyone ponted him out. A few months later the new school year started and he came bck after grad for a few upgrade courses and I stated hanging out with him, then we went and played pool one night as “freinds”and a few short weeks later we were dating. 12 years later we have been living together for 10 years married for 7 and have 2 of the Cutest Daughters Ever!

    I met my hubby when I was 14 and he was 16. A friend introduced us because she thought we’d be PERFECT for each other. We dated briefly but didn’t really ‘click’. We stayed friends though and the older we got, the more realized that we both wanted the same things out of life and that we were both out searching for what had been right in front of us all along! We fell in love and got married 6 month later.

    I met my husband when I was 13, he 14 at a summer camp. He lived in NC, I lived in MD and we did not keep in touch. Somehow, we ran into each other by chance two times. We ended up attending the same college. The last encounter we exchanged numbers, but I did not return his calls. One day he saw me walking to class and gave me a ride and we never parted since that day! We didn’t let another ‘chance’ meeting pass us by.

    Jason and I met in our freshmen year of college. We lived in the same dorm and often saw each other out in the lobby playing cards and such. When a group of my friends wanted to play a game of Hearts and I did not know how to play, he offered to teach me. Well, anyone who plays Hearts knows that the Queen of Spades is the worst card to play when starting a round, but Jason advised me to start with the Queen! Needless to say I lost my very first game of Hearts. He was so sorry and embarrassed; it was just too cute. The rest of course is history. . .

    I’m married, but my parents have the TRUE LOVE STORY. They 1st went out on Valentine’s day to a dance. What a way to begin a LOVE STORY. After dating for 4 yrs. & my Father went to war, they finally got married. Thru the years, I NEVER heard my Father raise his voice to my Mother once!!, and visa versa. They had 3 children, a DS, DD, and DD. My parents had great times with each other. Any time they would come home from a party, they always brought the favors to us. My parents were a blast to be with, and was never embarressed to be around them. My Father traveled alot and it was my Mother who always made sure everything was taken care of.When he returned you could always see the LOVE in their eyes that they were back together safely. In later yrs.,at the age of 21, my sister was in an accident and was killed, which my Mother held our family together.Then one day, my Father had to take over everything my Mother did. Both of us children were married and had families of our own. I helped in anyway I could. 3 yrs. ago, my Mother found out that she had lung cancer and only had 2 1/2 mths. to live, but God gave us 3 yrs. Thru this time, my Father waited on my Mother hand and foot, even after his hip surgery and was walking with a walker, and everyday they told each other I love you. Thru their 51 yrs. of marriage, my Father stayed with my Mother till the end on Nov. 23rd. He was there with her and was telling her how much he loved her. I only wish that mine and anyone’s LOVE could be as stong as theirs. They trusted, and Loved each other and believed in our Dear Lord, and that to me is a LOVE STORY I will never forget.

I sat down and DH started asking me questions about where I lived, where I worked etc. When I told him I was going to nursing school, he pretended his leg was hurting and I just thought that was so lame. But, he redeemed himself after his lame comment and we have been married for 23 1/2 years.

    My husband and I are high school sweethearts. I ignored him Freshman year while my friend had a crush on him in Algebra class. Later Sophmore year, I fell for him.

    We broke up for 3 yrs then my husband found me again. He had been to a wedding and realized that he was happiest when he was with me so he started looking for me again. I agreed to meet him for dinner to show him how well I was doing without him- it did not go as planned as we were talking marriage just months later! We have been married for going on 11 yrs and have 3 kiddos. I am so thankful for second chances!

    We met through a dating service; they thought he was a great match for me except that he smoked so they called me to see if I wanted to meet him. I decided not to reject him because of one factor; we met and have been together ever since.
    And, he quit smoking on April Fool’s Day, 1999, a few months before we got married.

    I met my husband, Scott, when I moved back home after a horrible first job experience out of culinary school. His family went to the same church as my family. I actually knew his parents and sister from visiting the church on visits to my parents. My dad introduced us one Sunday evening at church, but my dad asked Scott how things were going at the college. Well, I thought Scott was still in college, thus younger than me and therefore I wasn’t interested. But I ended up finding out that he worked at the local college and then he asked me out on July 4th. We were married about 2 years later, and have been married 10 years now with two wonderful sons. I love him more today than ever.

    My husband and I met in the cafeteria in high school – I was having an argument with a girlfriend about an episode of Seinfeld, and I asked him to settle it, even though we had never spoken before! He started sitting at my table, we became friends, and a year and a half later, we started dating. We’ve now been married for almost 7 years!

  • 419

    We met at a club–one of the rare times I went out to a club. We met and chatted a bit but nothing more. I thought of him occasionally. I saw him a few months later and he couldn’t remember my name. I bought him a drink and had a waitress take it over to him with my name and we’ve basically been together ever since. That was over 13 years ago. Wow, time flies when you’re having fun!

    I was introduced to the love of my life by his college roommate, who I had met at a party. The roommate was kind of a wild boy, and I wasn’t. So when DH’s roommates went home from the party that night, he told DH that he’d met “the perfect girl for you.” DH’s roommate introduced us a few days later in the middle of “Red Square,” and the rest is history. We have been married more than 28 years, and I love him as much today as I did the day I met him.

    Janin Huerter says:

    My husband and I will be celebrating our ten year anniversary this Thursday the 18th. This is the perfect question to ask me around this time. ๏Š I met my husband twelve years ago at a Rugby tournament. I had just started dating a team mate of his and was invited to go watch his Rugby game in Cleveland Ohio. When we pulled up I noticed a man sleeping in the car next to us. He was a teammate of my friends. We walked up to his car and woke him up. He stepped out of his car and my friend introduced us. He smiled at me and shook my hand. We both froze and starred at each other for around a minute holding each others hands. I was in a trance of some kind. I still can not explain it. We both laughed and shook it off. But I knew from that moment on that I had just met my husband. A couple of weeks later my friend that I was dating told me to give Scott a call because there was obviously some connection between the two of us. I called him up the next day and asked him out. Our first Date was on July 4, 1996. Our first kiss was a small kiss on the lips while watching fire works over the water. It was perfect. Three years later on July 4th 1999 after being married for six months , we found out we were expecting our first child. July 4th is a good date for us. We both believe in love at first site. We experienced it. He is and always will be my knight in shining armor.

    I just love to tell the story of how my husband of 20 years and I met. He was sitting around with some of his friends (he was 15 at the time) and dialed numbers until some poor slob (me) answered. I talked to him for hours that night and we just clicked. We continued to be phone pals for months and then we finally met but we were still just friends for many months. Everybody said we were too young (just as I would be saying to my kids if this was one of them) and that it couldn’t last but 25 years after meeting and 20 years of marraige and 3 kids later…I guess it was the real thing! If this isn’t fate, I don’t know what is!

    wow, sweet memories. My husband and I met while doing volounteer work in Romania (Europe) in July/August 2003, we were both college students and we got scholarships from Hope WW to participate in Hope Youth Corps, and our site was Romania. We met there for the first time, at that time he lived in Philadelphia, PA and I was living in Macedonia (Europe), so we served children from different orphanages for two weeks before returning to our countries.I think just serving kids with different physical and mental challenges and how we handle that can really reveal our true selves and makes us grateful for what we have. From the first time when he walked in the family center I knew there was something special, and it seemed too good to be true, especially because we lived in different continents.

    Well after that we stayed in touch through email, phone, chat etc. And in June 2004 I came to the US, in November 2004 he proposed to me, about a month before my visa expired, and in February 2005 we got married.
    I could say a serving for a good cause brought us together.

I finally agreed and after a week he asked me to marry him, mind you this vacation was our first dating in person. I said yes and we’ve been married 26 years and have 4 wonderful children.
