I though holy crap that man is tall! Then I thought, wow he is handsome.

He is 6’9″ if not 6’10” (his mom said he is an inch taller than he admits)

It was in a grad class.

Aww I love this thread!! Real life love stories ๐Ÿ™‚ 

We met while we were working together at the same restaurant in college. My roommate, who worked with us, introduced us and told me that “she liked him for me.” I secretly crushed on him for months, and I think everyone knew but him. We found out we lived right down the street from each other so we started hanging out with mutual friends. Then, he finally asked me out, and the rest is history!! I cannot wait to marry him in a month!

@jjmomma: Aww, that’s so sweet! I met mine in a bar on a Thursday night among mutual friends. The mutual friends showed no interest in me. If I remember correctly, I went to find my friend who was dancing with one of our mutual friends (whose wedding I attended last year). Next to him was my DH. We locked eyes immediately, danced together, then went downstairs to an adjacent bar to talk. We talked and danced up until the friends were ready to leave. We set up a date for Sunday and talked in between and when he had time away from the wedding he was attending.

I met FH in high school – I was a sophomore, he was a freshman. I thought “dang he’s tall! he’s cute, but is he Russian or something?” His last name is latin, and for the life of me I couldn’t figure out what his nationality was. He had this super thick curly hair, gray/blue eyes, and a deep voice. I was team manager of the men’s basketball team, and he had just got on the team. I had a crush on him, but we just became really good friends.

Fast forward 5 years later, I saw him in the mall one day, and thought “Holy crap!!! Is that T*****?? Wow..he’s a MAN now!!!” We had our first date that day and have been together since then!

@jjmomma:That’s so cute!!!

I was at a work conference. I was a manager so I was getting my team organized. A manager that I knew from another office was arriving so I looked up to say hi to him and my now DH was right behind him. I thought he was so good looking! We did a mixer later and I used it as an excuse to meet him ๐Ÿ™‚ I saw him at another conference a few months later and sat next to him to strike up a conversation. A few months after that we were in Phoenix for something and I ended up giving him a hug good bye. Apparently he wasn’t sure if I was interested before but as we were getting ready to leave he told himself “If she gives me a hug good bye I’ll know she likes me.” Well I did, the week after we got back he graduated college and moved back to his hometown/the town I was currently living in, we started talking and the rest is history! 3 years later I’m very happily his wife.

We set up a meeting through Craigslist – I had a spare ticket to a  concert and was in the process of reviewing and interviewing applicants (no joke, it was me and a group of friends with a clipboard).  He walked in the door of the Irish pub and I thought “welp, there he is –and he doesn’t look like a serial killer”.  I didnt think much of him romantically because I wasn’t looking for a date, but that quickly changed as my interest grew exponentially as the night went on.


Turns out he was not only the best person to have chosen to go to the concert with, he also happened to be the love of my life, the perfect partner, and the best friend I could ever ask for.  <3

I wouldnt call it love at first site but the attraction was there 10 fold – unfortunatley i was in a relationship when i met my husband.  I can’t say i didnt think about him but i was loyal to my boyfriend and a few months after i met him my boyfriend broke up with me (thank god – for i would have probably held on for much longer) and since i was newly single and my husband was new to town we started hanging out here and there – i really really loved hanging out with him, he was funny, nice, smart  and oh did i say attractive?  i was on a high after such a sudden low but i was not ready for a title, i mean i had just gotten out of a 3 year relationship – a few months passed and i just couldnt get this guy out of my head, we contiued to see each other frequently and after a few months of constant “talking/dating” i finally gave in and committed myself to him – Im so lucky he stuck around till i was ready to commit,

  • Wedding: August 2013 - An amazing non-profit retreat

We met at work at a call centre, back when he was 19 and I was 20. I was worried about my ex joining our team, and my co-worker was curious to know which guy my ex was. She pointed to Alex (my now FI!) and thought for sure he was the ex. I had just sworn off guys maybe 2 weeks before, but…

I looked at him, and he looked at me, and it was like lightning struck. The world stopped. Clearly the feeling was mutual because he decided that his computer was “broken” so he could switch seats and sit by me. We sat side by side and talked and flirted for weeks, he asked me out, and the rest was history. I will always remember that first summer <3 and the next, when we moved in together. I know our marriage will work because we were able to live together and work together in complete harmony.

I was in a bar for a friend’s birthday and he had known her and came over to say hi, he started talking to me and I thought he seemed nice but I was there to have fun and not meet any guys…well we went to exchange numbers and I had called him the wrong name and everything. Oops. I guess he took it as a challenge, because after a lot of time since that night, two deployments, and many letters, e-mails, and phone calls, he became my boyfriend, best friend, fiance, and now husband! We still joke around and I’ll call him the wrong name but I promise, I’ll never forget it again lol!

We were at an Ugly Sweater Christmas Party.  Everyone was dressed up in horrible Christmas clothing except him.  He got the invite too late to find something.  He had on a black and yellow t-shirt with some weird picture on it, and I thought, he’s really cute, but we never talked at all.  He actually won the costume contest too, because so many of our friends sarcastically voted for the guy not dressed up.  A later meeting however, had me convinced we could never date.  He was talking about music he liked and things of that nature and I thought “Oh gosh he would never like me.  He hates everything I like!”   Now here we are almost 2 years later and I couldn’t imagine someone more perfect for me.  Different taste in music and all.

Well for me I met him first on a blind double date.  My friend knew both my Fiance and his friend.  My friend was interested in my Fiance, but didn’t want to go on a date with just him right away so she asked me to come along on a double date with my FI’s friend.  Well, anyways, it so happened that I caught my FI’s attention (and he caught mine!!), but I also caught his friend’s attention.  They both asked me out the week after and I had to choose.  Luckily, I made the right choice ๐Ÿ™‚
