Hey bees, I need some encouragement and hope for any future relationship(s). Couple weeks ago I broke up with the man I planned on marrying…turns out he’s a loser with no future (at least that’s what his attitude and actions say), just took me a year and a half to realize that he was “Mr. Right Now,” not “Mr. Right.” I figured I’d save us both the trouble and heartache from a future divorce… Sorry, ranting. Break up is still very recent. Anyway! Back to the question…
How did you meet your hubby?
How long have you been married?
Are you happy?

I met my husband at my college theatre. I worked with his father for half a year or so before I met him. We dated, very briefly before we went our seperate ways. He joined the Navy, and I stayed in California. We reconnected seven years later through a series of unfortunate events (My college theatre professor got very ill. My husband’s father was in touch with my professor and I needed his father’s number so I could check up on my professor.) I got in touch with my husband through facebook.
I ended a relationship of three years for him.
Three months later, he flew me to Oklahoma to see him for three weeks.
A month later I left home and moved in with him, 1,200 miles away from the only life I had ever known.
Four months later we were engaged.
A month later, we were married.
We’ve been married since December 9th.
Am I happy? Absolutely. I am happier than I have ever been before. I love my husband deeply, passionately, truly and real. I was afraid to move so far from home, but now I can’t imagine my life any other way. I have a house of my very own, I have a husband who is absolutely over the moon with me, and I with him.
I’m sorry to hear about your breakup. Love works mysteriously. Back in college, I had feelings for my husband, but I never saw him as the man I would marry. A boyfriend? A fling? Nothing worked out between us. We both matured and it turned out we kept those deeply hidden embers of attraction hidden under ashes.
Don’t go looking for love, but don’t resist it if you feel yourself slipping into it.

I used to model, the owner of a modeling agency I was working for was friends with DH. So we met through him, and we are very happy!
You will meet Mr. Right, don’t you worry!

@mzieglar: I’m sorry to hear that your relationship didn’t work out but like you said, it was better you realized all you know now than after you married him. If it makes you feel better, I met my DH one week after I broke up with my ex-boyfriend. I was in a bad relationship, emotionally and mentally. We treated one another horribly on and off for 8-9 months. A large part of why I stayed in a clearly unhealthy relationship was bc I kept thinking I could fix things if I tried hard enough. That if I truly loved my ex, I could try harder to make it work. When I finally realized how lost things really became, I ended it. A week later, my now DH flew into town to visit his cousin who was my college roommate. Initially it was more lust than anything. A rebound to get my mind off my ex but over time, it became so much more. Seven years after we met, he proposed. We got married in October of 2012, and meeting him has been the best thing that has ever happened to me. To this day, I jokingly tell him he’s the rebound that stuck. So OP, I believe there is a special someone out there for you! Don’t give up!

We met in a game that we both played online. We were friends through it for 2 years, then we met in person and started dating. We dated for 2 years and are now married for the past 5 months. 🙂

I met mine at a party when I was 16. Going to that party was the best decision of my life.
We have now been together 20 years in August and married for 15!

@mzieglar: I met my FI at rehab…so don’t give up hope. You can meet the man of your dreams in the most unlikely place and usually when you are not even looking for it.

I met FI at an anime convention seven years ago. I was dating my ex at the time, and we didn’t get together until we reconnected a couple of years ago. Funny how life works sometimes

@mzieglar: When we were 13… we went to a sports camp in the summer and he followed me around like a little puppy =) We liked each other and flirted, and dated in the way immature 13 year olds date, and then became friends – the kind that you know will always be there for you. We had separate lives (same high school, one year difference) and we watched each other deal with all the usual stupid high school stuff, and he stuck through it through everything, no matter how many mistakes I made. Then the summer before grade 12, I was out with my childhood best friend and we started talking about him (FI) – at this point we hadn’t talked in awhile, maybe 4 or 5 months). I ended up calling him that night and talking to him for hours like we used to, and that fall we started dating (OCT 1 was our first date!). Since we met when we were little, he always told me someday he’d marry me.. and just under 3 months ago he proposed after nearly 3 years of dating and 2 years of living together!

We met online. There was something about him that I couldn’t put my finger on. During our first phone call, we realized we had met in person 10 years before. He had been the best man in my cousin’s wedding, and I was a bridesmaid.
We’ve now been dating a little over 2 years, and we are getting married in less than a week!

We met online. If I wasn’t happy, I wouldn’t have married him.
