    Default How did you meet?

    Reading @dalmatina38 story of how she met her husband got me to wondering how everyone else here met their spouse/significant other. I love hearing the stories of how people met. Anyone care to share?

    Mine is well, a bit of a family scandal..lol

    I met my hubs through to my cousin.

    She invited me to go out with her one night, and the evening started off at the apartment of my future hubs and his roommate. They used to do Thursday night parties, where a bunch of people would get together at their place, have a few drinks, or a lot of drinks..lol, then go to a restaurant.
    When I first saw him, I was blown away (hubs is really good looking), but umm.. my cousin was "involved" with him (in a very carnal way if you know I mean). But based on what she said, it wasn't serious at all. Turns out, she had more feelings for him than she lead me to believe.

    Anyway, it was really love at first sight with us. The drama that followed though.. ugh. But we're married now, very happy, and that's all that matters. My cousin and I though.. well, that's another story.
    I understand her point of view, but when something's meant to be- it will be no matter how hard you try and fight it.

    We met in 1986, I was sixteen and he was eighteen living in different towns and we met through mutual friends. He was interested in my friend and I was interested in his so that is why we were all hanging out. Well his friend was a jerk and we decided that we liked each other and the rest is history. We have been together everyday since. My friend wasn't too happy but she turned out to be a jerk also so who cares. I got the prize!!! I had a "boyfriend" at the time who was away on a ski trip, but we were really just close friends so I made sure he understood when he got home that I had met someone else who I knew would be very important in my life and he graciously bowed out.

    I met my husband is high school 9th grade… we were in World Geography class together. I thought he was "weird" and we used to make fun of each all the time… LOL Fast forward to 11th grade… I had a friend who was talking about this "cute guy" that she liked in gym class, we were watching him swim during gym. I was like "OMG I know him… LOL". We actually started hanging out together w/a large group of friends, and he asked me out!!! We dated thru HS, and then my family moved to Atlanta my senior year. We broke up of course… he joined the Army, and I went to college but we would still keep in touch even though we were dating other people. For some reason he came to visit me on one of his Army breaks and we decided we were meant to be… and we got engaged. The deal was I was going to finish college, and he was going to West Point. Well he found out that you can't be married and attend West Point, so he decided he didn't want to be an Army officer anyway. Then he got orders to Alaska… we were crushed. So we decided to go ahead and get married, so I could go w/him to Alaska. My parents were crushed of course, but we got married (I was only 19 at the time… and NO I wasn't pregnant!!! LOL) and we moved to Alaska. One of the craziest things that I have EVER done, but one of the BEST decisions I have ever made. We just celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary last year!!!

    OK @Blueberrys Mom, Here it is. I just like hearing other people's

    I met my husband in 2006. It was Friday of memorial day weekend, I remember because everyone goes out of town here in KY to go to Lake Cumberland. I was supposed to go to the lake too and was waiting on my friend, but an accident shut down the highway. It was nuts here. I couldn't even get out of my apartment complex. I was bored and decided just to go get the mail and as I was walking to my mailbox, there was a group of rowdy boys sitting on the sidewalk just drinking. As I was walking back one of them yelled at me to come have a drink with them. I ignored him, you have to realize though, I've never really dated people, I like just doing what I want, I'm very independent and just flat out was not interested, especially in the "look" of these guys LOL. Shallow I know. But, they were Kentucky redneck's LOL. not my type. The one kept yelling at me to come have a beer and I just ignored and kept walking. He finally said "F*** you then B***". well that got my attention cause I was MAD. There was no reason for anyone to call me that. So I swung my head around and yelled "What did you just say?" and his face softened and said "Would you like a drink?" I said "ok". We became fast friends, liked to party and hang out, we fought a lot cause I wasn't ready to give in. We both say he stalked me until I caved, which is true. But we fought...constantly, two stubborn, independent people at each others throats. Finally one day we had enough of it, sat down and said, either be together or not. And we stayed together. We got engaged about 6 months into dating and waiting until 2009 to get married. To this day, I still have his phone number under Searp(our last name) which is what everyone calls him. He says he knew the moment he saw me walk out of my apartment that he was going to marry me and had to get my attention, which is why he cursed at me. I was everything he ever wanted. And he's everything I ever wanted and I'm glad I didn't settle for anything less, turns out he was just my type!

    LOL. I just like hearing other people tell their stories. I guess it's seeing the love fill up their faces and how happy it makes people. And the stories usually fit the people so well.

    @JennieS My story does not fit me at all. There's a lot of hurt feelings to this day because of what happened, and it upsets me to no end that she can't forgive. At the same time, I know I deserve it. Lots of guilt.

    What was worse was, we flew to Vegas on a Friday morning and got married on Saturday. Called my parents Saturday evening to let them know we did it! My mom "sounded" so happy she cried. Flew back Sunday night and Monday morning my mom calls and tells me my grandmother (her mother), died Friday morning right after I had left for the airport. She didn't want to let me know because she had a feeling we were getting married and didn't want me to cancel. So when I called Saturday, she didn't tell me because she didn't want to ruin my wedding day.

    It was very bitter sweet. My grandmother died on August 20th 2004. I got married August 21st 2004 and never knew she had passed. Some family members felt I deserved it.
