I was in college working on a friends documentary for one of our intensives. My fiance was actually the subject for the documentary and I was the cameraperson. Filming that first interview I knew their was something different about him. We quickly became friends, he asked me out a few months later, and BAM here we are almost 5 years later getting married!

Mr. FF was my partner on the ambulance’s cousin. He was a Firefighter. We had talked on the phone and was always friends but one day we finally met in person and well that was it. The next day we talked about it and became serious one year later we have a ring!

My good friend and roommate wanted to try online dating, but wanted moral support from me, so she signed me up too. I was absolutely sure online dating wasn’t for me, and I still can’t believe I let her sign me up. But… the first guy that popped up really caught my eye, he had a bike in one picture and a dog in another, and his profile wasn’t typical or scary. I told myself I would just talk to him to see if he knew of any good hidden mountain bike trails, but the rest is history. 🙂 It took awhile for us to actually start dating, and I stayed online for two months, and not a single other guy caught my attention. Talk about lucky timing (or destiny if I believed in it).

We met at a not-so-blind date, set up by his cousin and my friend. It was not love at first sight but I’m sure it was very close, because we have been together ever since (no breaks =O, i know)and loving almost every minute (lol).

I was working a part-time Christmas job for extra cash in 2005, at a mall jewelry store. Mr. PG’s parents came in to buy something, and we struck up a conversation. We are all from the same small town, and knew "of" each other. (Mr. PG and I actually went to middle school together, before he transferred).
His parents went home, and told him to look me up and ask me out! He tracked me down, and the rest is history. =)

- Wedding: September 2009 - City Hall
We met at work. We have an interesting background in that we both went to 3rd-12th grade together in the same small town, and there’s no excuse for us not knowing each other then. One of my best friends even lived right by his family! We were just both very introverted, so we didn’t meet/talk/socialize. But, that connection got us to start talking when we startd working together 2 years ago, and we started dating several months later.

@Pinot Grigio – same here, we knew ‘of’ each other – funny how that works.

FH and a good college girlfriend of mine were working at the same firm in NYC back in 2004. I first met him on a visit to NY, when I dropped off my luggage at my friend’s office and she introduced me to her work buddy in some back hallway. At the time, I was crying because I had just heard some bad news. So it was horribly awkward, but the awkwardness actually made him remember me. We were re-introduced two years later at a housewarming party hosted by that same college friend of mine. At that time, I had moved to NY for work. So the three of us (college friend, FH, me) would hang out pretty often. And that’s how it started!

We met when we were both out to dinner with friends!
It was during a very busy time for both of us, so several weeks actually passed before we had our per se first date..which was out to dinner too! Cajun!

We met through work. He’s a computer geek, so after meeting at lunch through some co-workers, when I got back to my desk, he sent a msgbox with "It was nice meeting you" and I had click "OK" to close it…lol I was impressed and the rest is history!

The first day of grad school…though we didn’t date for another 4 years. He’s cute, though, b/c when I ask him when he knew he wanted to marry me he refers to something that would be about an hour into our new student orientation. I don’t know if that’s serious or not, but it makes me smile:)
