@Miss Tattoo: We actually met on myspace but no-one knows that. Our families think we met at FI’s old job since back then, meeting online was still kind of taboo. In reality, I had just gotten out of a crappy emotionally abusive relationship and really was just looking for someone entertaining to chat with. I saw his picture and thought he was cute so I emailed him. A few weeks later we met in person for dinner at Applebees. He was the first person I had ever met online  so I was a little sketched out by the whole situation so I told him I drove a different car than I actually did just do I could make sure he wasn’t some middle aged molester. Turns out he was just as adorable as I thought he would be. He even brought me flowers which was HUGE since I had NEVER gotten flowers from my previous boyfriend. The day we met it was ridiculously hot and his car didnt have AC. When he gave me the flowers they were almost dead from the heat but I still loved them. =)

@mrscandy: I REFUSED to throw them away too. My mother eventually tossed them and I was heartbroken but it had to be done (they we’re starting to stink).

@Miss Tattoo: We went to high school together, but never really knew eachother. He was the hot upperclassman that I was afraid to talk to and he says he thought I was always in a relationship so he didn’t want to go out on a limb when he thought I wasn’t available. – I was available!

But then years after we had graduated we were both going to a Brooks and Dunn concert. While tailgating, I was looking for the bathroom with my friend and I literally ran into him. I couldn’t stop talking to him, until my friend pulled me away to finish our trip to the bathroom. ๐Ÿ™‚ We ran into eachother again when we got into the concert. We spent the whole night together and have been together every since.

  • Wedding: April 2010

We met while drunk and in line at a late night taco stand at 2:30 am.

I had been out for my friend’s birthday. He had been an entertaining a friend who was in town visiting.

My friend and I were drunk and ready to pig out, discussing how many burritos and tacos we were gonna order. He was in front of us in line and turned around to say, “Do you know HOW BIG the burritos are here?”

We started chatting and flirting. And then, the taco stand closed right after taking his order. My friend was pissed and yelled at him, “Are you gonna get her number or what cause we’re outta here!”

Aww the stories are soo sweet! I love reading how people met! ๐Ÿ™‚

@Miss Tattoo We met through my sister and her partner a few times but he didn’t seem interested so I left it and 18 months after first meeting he added me on FB and we started talking more and more often. Things really took off when He came to go sledging with me and my 10 yr old son (whom he also knows through my sister) We have been nearly inseparable since.

He proposed last week by putting my engagement ring in a glass of champagne. I didn’t expect it so nearly swallowed it and he had stop me and fish the ring out! It was still very romantic! ๐Ÿ™‚ My son is thrilled and wants a Lord of the Rings themed wedding. I politely told him no! lol.

Mr. G taught me how to ride a Motorbike.  I had a crush on him from the second I saw him, he hadn’t even spoken haha.  I had no idea he was an instructor till about half hour into the first theory class. 

He thought I was “hot” (his words).  So hot that I was out of his league (all his words, lol).  It wasn’t until I returned to the class (during a parking lot session) weeks later to show him my new bike that we first got to really chatting.  I had been far too shy to really talk to him before.

What makes this hilarious, is that I would have gone the day I bought my bike but the weather was afwul!  Typical Vancouver weather for the time of year.  I had to wait 2 weeks before the weather improved!!  I rode to class to show him my bike.  Turned out the class was on the lunch break, so as I ride over, EVERYONE got to see my dump my bike.  My brand new bike, lol. 

I had to decide, and quickly, how much do I like him?  If I rode away, I could neeeeeeever go back.  Or, I could pick up my bike (with help of Campus security.  They teach at a University Campus parking lot), and ride over and make fun of myself.  Thankfully, I went with the later option.  We went on our first date days later, and he actually asked me to be his girlfriend *swoon*.  Been together ever since Cool

We worked together. I got a job at my college bookstore as a freshman, and worked there for three and a half years, off and on (but mostly on). My now-FI was one of the managers. 

We didn’t start dating until the summer between my soph. and junior years, at which time he was preparing to leave the store for a new job. We hid our relationship from everyone there until his last day. But we did sneak in a few secret make-out sessions in the stock room, office, etc…

I was the captain of an internship type program with the Police Department called Police Explorers. It was my senior year of high school. He had just moved From AZ to go to college and was looking for a new Explorer Post. He was Corperal in the one he was from. He asked for Captain Fricke not expecting it to be a toally cool and cute girl. I thought he was too cute. Lucky for me I had to have his contact info for the post. We started e-mailing back and forth. Super official at first but quickly turned into flirting… it was history from there.

@UpstateCait: I met my Fiance on Myspace too! lol

It was around midnight between December 19th and 20th and I was on MySpace trying to make myself tired when I got a friend request from someone I didn’t know. I never add someone unless they have a friend in common with me that I trust so I went and saw that he knew a really good friend of mine so I accepted. At about 3am he sent me a message asking how I knew his friend. One thing lead to another and before I knew it it was after 8 in the morning and he had to get off line so his dad, a truck driver, could get back on the road. That night we again talked for about 9 hours and exchanged numbers so we could continue to talk when his dad started driving again. On the 23rd he came to my appartment (I had some friends living downstairs so all I would have to do is yell or stomp and they would come running) for us to meet in person and we hit it off. The following day I went with him and his dad to a family christmas party and the next day we started dating. Who knew that my first boyfriend would be the one?
