    • Wedding: June 2019


    The funny part is, both of us had the same goal–neither of us had ever had a one night stand and we were both tired out from shitty relationships. So our intentions with each other was to hang out, have an awesome night, have sex, and then never see each other again. Now we are 15 days out from our wedding day!

    Who knew?

    We met at work!


    He worked for a supplier of ours, we spoke on the phone for months before meeting in person.

    He came in one day to pick up a part for work & my jaw dropped, he was my dream man in one neat little package,

    Blonde Hair, Blue eyes, Beard & Tall, I already knew he was just lovely (based on phone calls) and I was SMITTEN.


    I then asked him out and he REJECTED ME! aha He was seeing another girl, what a gentleman. 


    2 years later he broke up with his Ex and started working with me at my business, he then started to chase me! 

    2 more years of best friends we were our at a pub for my little sisters birthday, ended up sharing a Kiss & we went home together… he never left after that, we have been together 24/7 since.

    High school sweethearts, by a month! We were introduced by a mutual friend, went to senior prom together (also happened to be my 18th birthday), were crowned Prom King and Queen, began dating shortly after, dated through college (attended different colleges about an hour away) and got married once we’d graduated! A storybook romance of our own 💕

    I met mine on Snapchat! He randomly added me. Well it wasn’t too random, a girl on tinder gave him her snapchat and it turned out to be like mine. Just two letters different. He added me instead of her. We instantly started talking and immediately clicked. We met two weeks later. Now we’ve been going steady for the last 18 months. Waiting patiently for a proposal but my time will come!

    We met at my lawyer’s office. I was going out, he was going in. The parking was  indoor multi level garage and he jokingly asked the lawyer to vouch that he wasn’t a serial killer and offered to walk me to my car.  We talked a bit and  he asked me if I was interested in having dinner sometime.

    What he told me later on was that he was engaged at the time, went home and broke it off. He said he realized that even if I hadn’t said yes he wasn’t really in love with her and knew he had to break up.  We’ve been together ever since.

    We met at a fourth of July party for Americans in Ireland. We were both doing study abroad and it turned out we only lived a state away back home.

    We met in college at a frat party. The first time, my best friend was hitting on him. We even went back a week later so she could talk to him again. It didn’t go anywhere. 

    We had crossed paths occasionally for the next two years. I had friends in his fraternity. I was involved in Greek life as well. He was in a relationship. I remember him in the background of my 21st birthday. I ended up at his house after the bars. 

    At another party (game themed), he wanted to play Kings and we got a large group to play. He then challenged me to dizzy bat. I ended up in his room and saw a card game not many people play. I play. I was so surprised he played. He was surprised I played. It just confirmed we we’re both nerds. 

    He invited me on a date to play the following week. 

    We’ve been playing games since.

    We met at an industry conference 3 years previously – had a fantastic, brilliant conversation that went on for hours, and I had this feeling of “next lifetime, I hope I meet you”. Then we went our separate directions on opposite ends of the world.

    3 years later, a mutual friend points out that my future fiancée is in town for a month: we meet up, start talking and the electricity is allll there AND we’re both single. It took me a week of chasing her to get her to think that I was actually interested. Getting together with open, clear conversations about our expectations and needs right from the beginning.

    I was a French prostitute and picked him up.




    (In a community theatre production of Les Miserables. So, hobby.)

    We met on spring break, getting wasted on the beach, super classy, I know. (In my defense, I was 19) 

    Meeting him was the best thing that ever could have happened to me and we have since left our partying days behind us

    We both had quarter life crises. I decided to quite my job, break up with my boyfriend, and move to Nicaragua. He decided to quit his job, break up with his girlfriend, and motocycle through Central America. He never made it further south than Nicaragua… I still feel bad about that sometimes. tongue-out
