    Another vote for college! It was my freshmen year, 2 weeks into school, and there was some ‘school rave’ going on. It was a school event, so my new roommates and I thought it would be either cool or a complete failure; so we went. There was a HUGE line wrapped around the school arena, and I almost just convinced my roommates that we should just go back to the dorms. Nope; they were persistent and convinced me to stay. So we walk all the way to the back, and here I am realizing that there’s multiple lines, and we may not even be in line for the right thing. As soon as I have this thought, the guy waiting right behind me says, ‘um, anyone know what this line even leads to?’ And I turned around to joke that we were all probably waiting in line for some volunteey freshmen exam. Him and his roommate and my and my roommates all hit it off, so we all stuck together that night. I remember thinking he was cute and nice, but nothing more. little did I know that they would become our immediate freshmen best friends. These two random guys. For the next two weeks, we hung out in the dorms together, went to parties together, the food market, everything. And I was falling hard for him. But I promised myself that I would NOT get in a relationship. Apparently he made the same promise, but one weekend we went to my roommates parents house while they were on vacation, and took part in some seriously heavy underage drinking. Him and I were just laying in the floor, chatting, and he turned over and said, ‘I know neither of us want a relationship. I know this can blow up in our face and he seriously deterimental to our friendship, but I want to take that risk.’ 

    Meet started dating, which our friends were very pleased about, and that was almost 4 years ago. We’re not graduating next Fall, moving in together in 3 months, and his hugs still make me feel so safe and secure and loved. We’ve both changed an obscene amount these past 4 years, but somehow, we both grew by together:)

    We were freshmen in college living in the same apartment complex. My last name is his mother’s maiden name. At a welcoming party my roommate called me by my last name and he walked across the room and said “Oh! So YOU are the black sheep they kicked out of the house!”

    Somehow this lead to 5 years in a relationship and an engagement

    My Fiance and I met at a club about 5 years ago. It was my first week of grad school so a few of my friends wanted to go out before I started stressing over graduate coursework lol. I saw him passing by drinking and chilling with his friends. It was towards the time he was about to leave the club that he came and asked me for my name. I thought “eh…I guess I can give him my real name” lol. We exchanged numbers that night and talked non stop ever since.

    We met in high school and started dating about 10 months later. Now we’ve been together for 12 years 🙂

    I work in felony court and he works in law enforcement. We met at the courthouse when I shushed him, haha.  Luckily he has a good sense of humor.

    • Wedding: February 2014

    We met our freshman year of college in the dining hall! We had mutual friends, and one night I was out eating dinner with my girlfriends when these guys I knew came in, and he was with them. Apparently he had seen me around and had a crush on me for awhile, so they called me over and he turned red and got all flustered – which was really cute, and I thought he was good looking and really friendly, so the next time I saw him around I started a conversation with him. About two months after that we started dating, and the rest is history. 🙂 Hard to believe that was six years ago!
