I was in NYC, he was in Florida. We actually met online in some chat room in 1997. I was 30. He was staying at his parents as he had gone through a divorce and was getting back in his feet, We became chat buddies online for many months, then moved to email, then talking on phone. That went on for awhile, we really enjoyed just talking n being friends. Feelings had def developed between us, even though we were friends n both dating others. One day we talked about meeting. It was a bit scary though..so, I was reluctant at first. I spoke w his mom many times, who seemed really nice. I got super stressed w things in my life and decided screw it. I'm taking a trip. I gave all his info - address, phone number, full description etc- to my friend as well as my parents...just in case....I booked a trip for a week, met him at the airport and it was just an instant click between us. We spent a time with his family as well as on our own. We just got along so well, it felt like we had known each other forever and were just suppose to be together. When I left for home, we continued our long distance relationship for a bit n I got a bug up my butt to move there and pursue this fully. Very impulsive, yes, but I felt like I had to follow my heart. I was tired of my job, (as much as I love NYC n my folks), just wanted a scenery change. He was all for it, but my family was not thrilled. They actually made me speak w a psychiatrist to discuss my decision to see if I was being too impulsive. I went along w if as I knew they were just concerned for me but I was going one way or another. So, the psychiatrist said it sounded like I thought it through and even though it was a bit impulsive, it wasn't a bad idea to let me go n explore my life elsewhere. So, I got a job, found a place n moved. Things got heated pretty quick w us and before I knew it, we were living together. He has a son from previous marriage so I went through some trials w his ex just showing up to check on things when their son was w us. He was 3 at the time, so understandable, but she was a pita. Still is actually...lol anyway, in 2000 he popped the question, I said yes n we have been together since. We celebrate our 14th anniversary Feb 14.

I met my husband for the first time when I was 15 and out on a date with my boyfriend at the time when he invited a few of his mates to come to the Pizza hut for tea too.
Two little having fun together
All these stories are sooooo cute
Well I had just gotten out of a relationship( been with the guy for a few years and he lived two states away, we finally decided to move in together...Which meant I was gonna move to be with him. Started packing my stuff, moved some stuff out there and put my resignation in at my job. The Wednesday before my last day which was 2 days later he broke up with me.... Over the most stupid thing. I was a wreck!!! And I had to call and beg for my job back and then the f*cker had the nerve to call me back that weekend telling me he had made a mistake. I told him to F*ck off) and I thought I would try online dating.....And so I did. Met some interesting guys...Some that ended up being just friends and some weirdos and then Matt..He was not my type. When he messaged me I was kinda like ehhh, not that he wasnt attractive but just not my type lol. Well he met me up at the bar one night while I was out with some friends. He comes to set down and hes this big ol muscle-y dude.... So Im figuring he would be rough around the edges..... He was quiet and shy the whole time!! I am so not like that, I can be loud and very outgoing. And I am a touchy feely type of person, so while we are talking I had touched his arm and I got the weirdest vibe from him like I had done something wrong....lol I was like oh great I scared this poor boy. Told my friends that I would give him one more chance to see if he would open up.... We went to the movies the next time we went out, just the 2 of us and he said all the wrong things....lol But it was cute cause I had made him nervous And after that he stole my heart <3 I still look at us sometimes and think we look mis matched but I dont care, we love each other dearly.
I met my husband through a mutual friend in high school, my friend Allen was two years older than me, and his brother was my age, we lived in the same complex, and went to the same high school. Allen was also,friends with my husband Mitch, who is three years older than me, but he went to a different high school than me. One weekend my best friend Debbie (who's mom was away in England, and her uncle was supposed to be watching the house and her siblings, but didn't do such a hot job of that), told her uncle that she was sleeping at my house, and I told my mom I was sleeping over at her house. My friend Al and a couple of other people went to a bar in Oakville, it had a rock band upstairs, it had a disco on the middle floor, and an outside patio. It was Mitch's birthday and he had also come along. We ended sitting beside each other all night, and Mitch had a best friend named Rob, who ended up with my friend Debbie. We stayed at the bar until it closed, then we drove around, ended up at a McDonalds, ate, and then went to the all night Scooter Palace which was a roller skating place. We rented some roller skates, and then Debbie and I ended up in the ladies washroom, Debbie fell flat on her face on the concrete floor in the bathroom and landed on her arm. We went back out to the guys, and continued to skate until about 5:00 in the morning. The guys drove us home, and Mitch asked for my phone number. When we got back to Debbie's place her arm was so swollen, and her uncle took one look at it, and knew it was broken. He took us to the emergency department and they set her broken wrist. The next day Mitch and his friend Rob showed up at Debbie's house, and the four of us became couples. Rob and Debbie broke up after about a month of dating, and Mitch and I stayed together. We have been together for 35 years, and we had 3 kids together, we lived together all these years, and recently just got married in Jamaica last April. He is still my love, and my best friend.
