My parents went to college together.  I don’t know the exact details though, my dad doesn’t talk about it much.

At first I thought you meant my parents and SO’s parents!  They have not met yet.

My parents met at a mutual friends party, my dad used the “Do I know you” line.

They were sorta set up by a friend of my moms! 🙂 My mom’s friend used to sing at a hotel (lounge singer – the non seedy kind!) and dad used to go and listen to her sing so mom’s friend called mom and said “I want you to come over, you have to meet this guy” and the rest, as they say, is history.

  • Wedding: September 2010 - Heinz Chapel Ceremony, Museum Reception

My parents met at a bar–my dad sent a drink over to her. My mom has a really feisty personality and my dad is a very calm, reserved, steady person, and after their first date my mom told her friends he was the most boring man she had ever met! Hahaha! But after a few more dates she started to really see his personality. They’ve been very happily married for 28 years now.

My dad was friends with my mom’s sister, and they all went to the same college together. My mom and dad worked in the student union together…and it all happened from there!

  • Wedding: October 2010 - Ladder 15 Restaurant

My parents worked together at a jewelry store my Dad was manager of.  When my mom first started working there, she thought my Dad was intimidating because he’s 6’5″ and she’s 5’2″!  They worked together for two years and became friends, but every time one of them was single, the other wasn’t!

My Mom thought the girls my Dad dated were bimbos, and my Dad thought my Mom only dated guys with hot cars.  Finally, when both of them were single, my Dad’s best friend asked Mom out before Dad could, but Mom turned him down.  Dad then asked her out, and they knew they had something special after their first date.

They’ll be married 29 years this Jan and they are a big inspiration to us!

My parents worked at the same place. They became part of a big group of friends and were friends for months. They started dating and 3 weeks later they got married! They were married about 33 years when my mom died.

Good topic!

My parents actually met at a gas station. They were still in high school, but different schools. My mom was in the car with her older sisters, since they were going somewhere. My dad was putting gas in his car and started looking at my mom. She shrunk down in her seat so he wouldn’t see her and talk to her.(kinda conceited huh?LOL) He came over and she spoke to him, but they didn’t go out until later after when he wore her down.LOL

They married at 21 and 22 and I was born when my mom turned 20(same birthday) and my sister was born when they were 22 and 23.

My parents went to the same highschool.  My dad asked my mom’s best friend if she thought mom would go out with him.  And they looked dad up in the year book to check him out.  They had their first date the day after their highschool graduation. Married 36 years this year.
