  • Wedding: April 2005

I met my Darling Husband at work.  I was a temp higher for the summer and he was the boss.  I thought he was this mysterious older man with a mysterious history.  LOL!  I was smitten at day one.

So towards the end of the summer I begged and begged for him to hire me on through the winter which he did.  That winter was a tough one for both of us: him divorcing and me getting out of a seriously bad relationship.  But also that winter, the one department we worked for split into 2 departments which meant he was no longer my boss. 

He and I had always gotten along well in the work environment.  We worked well together and communicated well.

Finally, I asked to come up to his place (not the first time I had asked him out, but the first time I ever asked him IN, genius!)  We were only supposed to be a rebound for each other but that first night felt so natural and we hit it off on a deeper level right away. 

Here we are, almost a decade later, still hot for each other and I am definitely still smitten!

Online love πŸ˜‰ Fiance had just got out of a divorce and I had just gotten out of a LDR and moved back from Universtiy to my parents house in my hometown. We were both bored and lonely, but knew very few people, so decided to see what would happen.

We ended up chatting online for about a week before we met and the moment I saw him, I was smitten. Our first date lasted from about 5pm until 3am and the second date (the next day) was just as long.


No regrets πŸ™‚

  • Wedding: June 2014

Screaming at one another across a Social Policy seminar.

We didn’t get off to the best start, a few months after that we put our differences aside and because civil to one another in class, a year after that we became friends and a few months later we were dating. There was always an attraction though, we just have some very different ideas about youth unemployment policy :p

Through work. We met first at a conference, got along and went out separate ways. Few months later we ended up working together for a while. Both of us in toxic relationships, we hit it off but didn’t do anything about it. We both thought we had a stupid crush. Fast forward a little while, I was moved and we didn’t work together. We spoke a lot. I kicked my ex out and the next night he called to say he finally broke up with her. We caught up and talked heaps. Probably know too much hehe. Couple of weeks later, 4am and shaking with nerves we kissed.

So glad my stupid crush turned into my future husband πŸ™‚

  • Wedding: August 2012

I first saw my Fiance at a friend’s going away party! He was across from me and I was instantly attracted. After that, I kept looking up his facebook profile trying to figure out a way to friend him on it! I didn’t because I couldn’t think of a good reason. I then saw him at work a few times (we were both in the military). We happened to have the same circle of friends, so he came out and met up with us and I had to do all the flirting because he was super shy!! I knew that I could marry him and be happy, even though I was gone for a year in Florida (this all happened in the UK). I’m so happy I got my guy!! πŸ™‚

He’s not my Fiance just yet, but…

At the beginning of a semester of school, he was looking for a cute girl to sit next to.  He just happened to choose me :).  He kept sitting next to me even after I told him I was trying to date this other guy.  Then, when I brought up a few weeks later that my dates with him were just not working he made his move. πŸ™‚

  • Wedding: October 2012

In high school, the first day of winter semester freshman year. I thought he was super cute but a little awkward. I had a big crush on him for a long time and kept waiting for him to make a move (if this happened now, I probably would have just done something myself, but I was 15 and too chicken). He didn’t, but his friend did, and I ended up dating the friend for almost three years! The whole time, I harbored my secret crush for Fiance, though. We finally started dating about 6 1/2 years after we first met, when he was done with college and I was starting my senior year of undergrad, after randomly starting to talk again that summer.

  • Wedding: August 2013 - Brookfield Zoo

We were both interns at the same company in the same department, so we worked together for a summer.  I didn’t really think of him as a crush until the very end of the internship, and I only just recently found out that he felt the same way (I always felt guilty because I thought he liked me from the beginning, haha phew)!  We ended up spending more time together towards the end of the internship, and kept in touch through the beginning of the school year.  He ended up visiting me at school (we went to two different colleges) and sparks flew πŸ™‚  It was rough at first but we’ve been together now nearly 5 years and I am sooooo excited to get married!!

  • Wedding: November 1999

We met on April 15, 2011 when i saw his ad on Craigslist and texted him. We talked for about a week before deciding to meet in person, and we met at a gas station. We went out for pizza and then we went to the local park to talk. A week later i asked him to go steady. A year later, we’re engaged!

  • Wedding: July 2012

My Fiance and I met online.  I had been divorced for about 6 to 8 months at that time.  He just got out of a really bad relationship.  He was an over the road truck driver so we continued to chat, IM and talk on the phone here and there.  I dated other folks, he dated other folks.  Can you believe it took us two years to physically meet and we ended up meeting on a whim.  We had planned for like two weeks before that first date but his pickup truck broke as he pulled out of the drive (yeah, is what I was thinking – lol) but seriously, he backed out and his drive shaft fell out – lol.  So a couple of weeks went by and I was camping, bored out of my mind…I sent him a text.  He said that he was at the casino in STL, Mo but would be home tomorrow, which was a Sunday. So we sat a date and time to meet.  From that point on, we had been together (as a matter of fact…tomorrow is our 4-year anniversary of being together and we get married in 9-days).  Our date lasted for many, many hours and he had to go back out on the road the next day so I had to patiently wait for the following weekend to see him.  We spent all weekend together.  He said he very rarily came home on weekends and that he would just stay out on the road – nothing special to come home to.  Wouldn’t you know in four years now, he hasn’t missed but maybe two or three weekends of being gone and it is because the load he was hauling didn’t get unloaded in time, etc.  It wasn’t because he didn’t want to be home πŸ™‚

He is truly amazing and I am so happy that I didn’t give up on him after his pickup truck broke down and that I stuck with it.  He told my brother a while back that he never ever had the intentions of physically meeting me, either but thankfully, he gave in and we had dinner that first night.  LOL πŸ™‚

10th grade Spanish class.  Never dated. He wanted to, I didn’t.  Both married other people, got divorced, and reconnected through myspace 15 years later.  Haven’t been apart a day since then.  Soulmates. πŸ™‚

The short story is, we met at work. I saw him and thought he was sooo cute!

It turns out though that I had actually met him a few weeks earlier when my friend brought the guy she was trying to date (FI) to our Halloween party! After they fizzled, he hounded me for weeks to go out with him. I said yes just to shut him up πŸ˜‰ We now celebrate our anniversary on the day of our first date, because we haven’t looked back since!

@takemyhand:  We’re date twins! Less than a month, ahhhhh!!!
