    We met on MySpace. Aaaand that’s about it. We didn’t ever have mutual friends or happen to live in the same neighborhood as kids. Lol I favorited his profile on Face The Jury, he added me on MySpace and asked me to listen to his band, and I spent the next few months trying to get him to like me. I flew 700 miles to meet in person after we told our parents all sorts of fake stories of how we met, and we’ve been together ever since, ha. We met in 2006 at 17 and 18, and I moved here in 2007.

    My friend and I worked night shift in a hospital pharmacy doing mail order. So we could dress however we wanted to since we didn’t have to deal with patients. We were both in sweats and sweatshirts, no make up, and hair pulled up. Attractive right?! It was the night before my divorce and my friend convinced me to go to the club we always hung out on Friday and Saturday nights. We knew the bartenders and bouncers so we felt safe. So we had a beer each and then she went to the bathroom. As I was getting us a second beer, I noticed a group of guys come in that were very attractive. They came up to the bar beside me and said hi. My friend came back and fanned her face nodding at the guys. I agreed with her. We grabbed our beers and headed onto the dance floor by ourselves. When the song was over, one of the guys asked her to dance and led her back out onto the floor. I asked the guys left if any of them wanted to dance and they all stepped back leaving this one guy to his own defences. He smiled at me, took my hand, and said he would. We danced one song and then grabbed a free table. We spent the rest of the night talking. When the club closed, he gave me his number “In case I wanted to call him.” So I gave him mine. I found out he was getting a divorce the next week! We talked a lot that week. Even though we were just getting divorced, we happened to find what we had been looking for in the other. Our first official date was Valentine’s Day and the rest is history. That was 19 years ago this year! And we have been married for 13 in July!

    We met 11 years ago at work doing a show load-in. He saw me from across the room and wanted to ask me out. Someone beat him to the punch so he asked out my roommate. He dated her for a little bit, I dated the guy for 5 minutes…. A year later we ended up on the same tour together, where I dated his roommate. We were close friends for 7years before we dated, him asking me out time to time. He truly is my best friend. He knew from the beginning, I just needed some time to figure it out.

    • Wedding: October 2014

    We met through a mutual friend. Darling Husband worked with him, and I had met him through the last guy I dated – and stayed friends with most of his friends.

    This friend had invited me out a couple times when he was with now-DH, but I always had other plans – or we did meet up, but I never talked with now-DH for other reasons. One night I was out with a friend, and told him (he also knew her) that they should all come to this other bar cos other people they knew were there. They came, and now-DH and I started talking and never stopped.

    We met in seventh-grade pre-algebra and were best friends, with our ups and downs, ever since. He always wanted something to happen and it never felt right to me. I guess I wanted us to grow up as our own separate people. We fell out of touch when he went into the Navy and when I went into college–then we just happened to be back in our hometown at the same time one year, went out for dinner, and I finally knew this was the moment I’d been waiting for all those years. 🙂
