OMG no way he was a total dick in high school – Mr. Cool – and I was really shy and not part of the “cool crowd” (we didn’t go to high school together but I know what he was like through stories from his friends and from him) I joke all the time that I would have hated him in high school and he would have made fun of me with his friends.

High school maybe, college defintiely not.  (we met in our mid-twenties.)  I think our personalities were reasonably compatible in high school – we were both obnoxiously pretentious in that young way.  I think the age difference would have turned me off, though – he’s almost two years older, which isn’t that much, but for some reason I really don’t like the idea of dating older guys.  There was a guy two years ahead of me who was a great guy who liked me back in high school, but I was really weirded out by the age gap.

In college, he would have been way too much of a jock and a frat boy for me.  There’s no way I would have put up with it.

No way! Fiance was an artsy punk kid who attended class and got out of dodge. I was a huge nerd and was super involved at school (like, two sports, band, school plays, SADD, Academic Team, etc. etc.). I would have thought he was bad news and he would have thought I was Queen of the Dweebs..and we would both have been a little right!

I didn’t meet Fiance until he had graduated from college and was in that job step just beyond entry level, so he had natural colored hair, no piercings, owned a home, and wasn’t so punk rock. I blossomed in college and became much more social and interested in things beyond getting gold stars.

Not even close. He was a druggie and alcoholic who didn’t like to go to school. I was miss perfect, followed all the rules.

This is so funny!  I would most likely not have been interested in Fiance if we had met when I was younger.  It was a specific unique circumstance under which we met, after I had learned a lot and been around the block.  We may have hit it off as friends back in the day, but I had different standards back then, and he was raised with… well… awful circumstances that would have turned me off.  Also, men take at least 25 years to mature, a lot of times, in my experience!

I doubt it.  Our dating styles were very different when we were younger.

Haha! he and i talk about this ALL the time!  And it’s always “of COURSE – i’d love you no matter when i met you!” but, we both know it’s probably not the case. he was really shy and i was extremely non-committal – i probably would’ve given him a really hard time 😉  we always pretend we’d have been compatible at any time in our lives but there’s no question we met at the perfect time for both of us.

We would not have dated in high school. i see photos of him and he was waaaaay too dorky and scrawny. we were actually talking about this last night before bed. or maybe the night before. he said i probably would’ve been too intimidating for him to talk to.

absolutely not—i was in 8th grade when he was graduating =p

but if we were closer in age in HS–absolutely not! i was the cheerleader, theater star, honor student and he was a long haired hippy who partied too much and thought school was “conforming to the man” (or something like that).

when i tell my friends he was a long haired hippie, they don’t believe me because now he’s a clean cut man in finance haha.

Well, you would have to put aside our age difference (or else, EWWW and quite illegal!), but I don’t think we would have dated in either high school or college because we were different people then, still figuring our ourselves – our interests wouldn’t have matched then. Well, and I was too busy dating a-holes! LOL we met at the perfect time for us.
