    We were both doing hard time at the Block. Blockbuster, that is. Wink I was his manager and tried to fire him, (not because he was terrible, it just that he was only working a few hours a week and it looks bad to have a part-part time employee on the books…)

    Anyhoozerddoodles. I realized I respected him, and then fell hard, but then I moved, so we never actually worked/dated, just worked/crushed. I think it’s common to find the one at work, (well, where we worked is embarrassing) simply becuase you’re putting the most hours at the workplace, and in theory, you have something in common, (which, doesn’t pertain in my relationship, ’cause it was the block…..)

    Ugh. Couldn’t we have just met at a bar, or online…? The Block?! He jokes we should have a blue and yellow themed wedding….. OMDB. BTW, for my sake, we also worked other jobs at the time….

    we had known each other since high school. we never really hung out though but i dated one of his good family friends before. then we met up at a street dance in the summer and were by each others sides since! I really didn’t want to get into a relationship though. i had just got out of one, and been hurt pretty bad. Plus I had a 1 1/2 year old, and just wanted to focus on him. but thank God i took the chance! πŸ™‚

    I picked hobby and party/bar.  We met at a concert so I figure that’s pretty close.  πŸ™‚

    We met at….The Home Depot.  SO embarassing.  We were both working there for the summer while we were home/off from college…I was a cashier and he worked in doors and windows.  I remember the first time I saw him walk by carrying a door and thought he was cute. He remembers thinking I was bad-a** because I had black hair and wore a lot of eye makeup.  Ha!  The rest is history I guess.

    @Cannotwait: hahaha I’ve toned it down a little since I was 20 (when I met FI) but I still favor the eye makeup haha.

    Someday I will have to post a pic of myself on here, but until the wedding I thought it best to keep it anonymous ;o)

    dating website initially and then the blind date.  Our first date (met for coffee – both of us were playing it safe.  A cup a Joe can only last for so long).  We talked for over 4 hours at Starbucks over a Cup of Joe.  We haven’t looked back since.  It was amazing.  Both of our first time on a dating website (thanks to my aunt, I signed up and met him).

    We met on eharmony. I’d signed up because I was sick of dating losers and wanted to meet someone who was ready to settle down. I was the first and only person he corresponded with!

    My husband did (and still does) work with my brother. They became good friends, and they would go golfing all the time. I used to live w/ my brother when I first got out of college to get myself up and going, and when they went golfing together, he would secretly hope my car was there when they got home. He even asked my brother’s permission to date me before he asked me out. He’s a sweetheart Laughing

    We met in high school.  I went to an all girls school and he went to an all boys school.  His school hosted a dance I went to, and he asked me to dance.  The rest is history. πŸ™‚

    FIs college friend/roommate and I went to high school together. We all ended up at a beach house together over Spring Break. We tend to leave out the Spring Break part when asked how we met though πŸ™‚
