Fiance and I met at a local Firefighter boot camp that was held during spring break. I was in grade 9, he was in grade 11. We were eachother’s backups and spent almost every minute together since we were partners. Our friendship continues afterward and started dating that summer πŸ™‚

We met on a group ski trip.  The group we went with go  right after New Years every year during college.  The first year we just met, but didn’t start dating until we got to know each other better the second trip.  If it wasn’t for mutual friends, we wouldn’t have met either.  πŸ™‚

I met my Fiance while trying to help my ex-boyfriend rush his fraternity.

I had a bottle of champagne I was carrying around (now empty) and was looking for someone to hold it. Fiance was standing by the door by himself and seemed like the perfect person to hold my champagne bottle.

We started talking and talked all night but he didn’t get any contact info for me.

Then a few days later my friend and I were going to watch a basketball game at her bf’s apartment and she had my Fiance come and pick me up on campus to take me to watch the game. After the game my friend and her bf went out drinking and Fiance and I went back to his dorm room and watched the Italian Job.

A week or so after that we were officially dating. That was 7 years ago.

 at a house party after a hockey game. I was super mad that my college team lost that night and I remember seeing him and wanting to get to know him. Maybe it was also the fact taht was the only one not drunk. lol

We met at our local pub…LOL!  I would stop there after work to enjoy some beers over doing a schedule (HA!) and had been checking him out.  What had really gotten my attention was his deep, barry white voice and sense of humor.  We eventually began chatting and then dating and here we are!  He eventually admitted that he had been asking everyone about me but somehow couldn’t remember my name for a bit….men!

I had a spare  ticket to see the sold-out concert for the band of my life and I didn’t want to take just ‘anyone’.  I wanted a REAL fan.  So like any smart woman (yeah right), I put an ad on CL to find a fellow fan to go with.  Got about 40 responses.  Picked the best one, grabbed a bunch of girlfriends and interviewed a guy named Ben at a dive bar to make sure he wasn’t a serial killer.  He was cute and I liked him… said he could have the ticket.

Four days later a guy named Mark emails me. He’s ALSO a good candidate, and we seem to have more in common than I did with Ben.  Grab the girlfriends again, interview Mark in a dive bar, again, and like him even better.  We had an amazingly fun time together.  Told him he could have the ticket if he’d call Ben and tell him he was going instead.  He said GIVE ME THE PHONE NOW.  Of course I didn’t make him do it, but I loved his… enthusiasm.

So.. POOF!!!!  We met, we laughed, we went to see the sold-out concert for the band of our lives, we bought a house, we traveled the globe, we got engaged, and almost 3 years after meeting we’ll be getting married. 

We’re inviting Radiohead.  Think they’ll come? 

Thank you, Craigslist!  ha

I met Fiance in China!  I was moving home after four years abroad and decided to travel through China for a few weeks on my way home.  I went on a small group adventures tour and there were five other people on my trip… Fiance being one of them, travelling with his brother.  There was an instant spark between us and we spent the next 23 days travelling around China and seeing each other at our worst (can we say food poisoning, constant coughs, not showering for days at a time?)  We knew it was something special though and were determined to make it work, despite me being American and him being Australian.  

As a funny coincidence, after the China trip, I was heading home to Chicago and he was flying on to Milwaukee to visit his other brother who lives there.  Out of all the places he could be travelling in the States after China, he was going to a place only 90 minutes from me!  We spent another two weeks together in the States and knew by then that this was the real deal.  Nearly 3 years later, here we are, only a few months out from our wedding!  πŸ™‚

He moved in with me. 

I was housemates with one of his best friends from high school. Darling Husband had had a bad breakup a few months before, and had been sort of aimless, so he decided to move to Philly, and in with his best bud, his best bud’s girlfriend, and me. As luck would have it, our fourth housemate had moved out a week prior, so there was a spare bedroom. With a 4 month exception when we split up, we’ve lived together since Day One.
