  • Wedding: June 2014

I met my Fiance awhile ago. I was a seventh grader and just starting at a new school. He was in the grade ahead of me. At this small school 7th and 8th grade shared a teeny tiny building so you got to know the people in both grades. Not love at first site though. We were friends through middle and high school (the school we went to is grades 6-12).

We lost contact for a bit after that, especially since he went off to college. One day I reconnected with a guy that is a mutual friend of our’s (more a long term acquaintance for me actually, but he’s FI’s closest friend) through facebook. Both myself and Fiance asked this friend to give the other our phone number. For some strange reason the guy decided to lie to both of us about it and let us think the other just doesn’t want to talk. Luckily my Fiance knows his friend well, and showed up at my job to say hi in case I didn’t actually have his number. I wasn’t working that day, but he left a note for me and the next shift I worked I finally got to call him.

After that we just sort of fell into a relationship, it was so natural even though we never even got close to dating in high school. I’ve known him for half my life now.

@karissa_elaine:  I highly doubt that the friend was trying to keep me from hanging out with Fiance because he was interested in me. Fiance is very very loyal and if the friend had said please don’t make a move on her he wouldn’t have so there was no need. I think his friend didn’t want me to take FI’s time away. I have also always loved stories of old friends ending up together, now I do even more! Growing a friendship prior to a relationship, like you and your Fiance too, just feels so wonderful.

Actually I’m horrible because according to my Fi version of things we met several times and even talked before the memory I have of meeting him. I don’t remember the first few times I met my Fi, and I have very vague recollections of conversations we had after meeting each other multiple times. By the way he tells me my apparent complete disinterest in talking to him was clear and kind of lead him to thinking about what was my deal.

I love this telling this story! The first time I saw my FH was when I was a freshmen in high school It was homecoming week, and it was also “Movie Day”. I was too scared to dress up, so I was standing in the hallway watching everyone who did parade around the school. Well, FH was a senior. He was dressed as a 101 dalmation, full body suit & face paint! He was quite popular and a joker in high school. I saw him on and off in the hallways for the next year. I would see him and his best friend (who is also his best man now) in my lunch. They were always in the very back of the line. He graduated, and I didn’t see him again for 3 more years. My best friend started working at the grocry store where he worked and I went to pick her up one day. He was mopping the floor lol. I can remember that very spot. She gave him my number and about a month later, he finally text me. We saw each other for the first time a few weeks later. I was smitten from the begining… it took him a while to warm up to me. Now, we’ve been together almost 3 years and will be getting married in December! :]

This is a picture of him that first day I saw him. And then me, 3 years later in the same suit. His sister was in my class and we used it for a class project. I was in the “crushing” stage when I swore I had to put it on.

Fiance and I don’t actually remember when we first met, but the first time we know we were in the same room was Drivers Ed. We took it over the summer in a class of about 20. We became friends later because we hung out with the same group at lunch in high school. Most of the group took Japanese as their foreign language while I took Spanish and Fiance took German. Whenever the conversation turned to what had gone down in class we couldn’t participate and so we talked to each other. Then we had gym and study hall together. Fiance talked my ear off in study hall. We started dating late in the summer that year after my foreign exchange student left. (She was awful and my friends refused to hang out with me/her after they met her once) When school started back up in September we got a lot of double takes.

I had gone out to a nightclub to celebrate my friend’s 18th birthday, and she introduced me to her brother on the dance floor- we looked into each other’s eyes and solemnly shook hands. Later on, I lost my friend but saw her brother again on the dance floor – he was dancing crazily with his mate, I decided I did not want to join them! Hah!   His sister ended up setting us up..

Fiance and I met on our first date. He had sent me an email on a dating website and I sent him back my phone number… the only thing I knew was that he liked music. ๐Ÿ™‚ I fell in love with him the next date on our second date, and two days later on our third date I was sure of it. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I’m not terribly sure of the exact moment, but I’m certain it was during Welcome Week during our freshman year of university. I do know that the first time I heard his voice was Move-In Day, and from where I was sitting I couldn’t see him and all I could think was,”Ooh, that guy has a really sexy voice!”

I want to say the first time I actually saw him was when I was wandering around the dorm and saw some girls running out of the suite he lived while giggling and he was just glaring at them as they left, lol. I wouldn’t say it was love at first sight, but after we became friends the following month, we started dating just after a week and now here we are almost 4 1/2 years later.

  • Wedding: October 2013

Fiance and I met in university, on the first day that we both moved into residence in first year.  The building was doing a walk around, knocking on doors and meeting people type thing, so I was in the big group of students and we knocked on his door.  He answered and said what program he was in, which was the same as me (with a small class of about 60 people, he was the first person I had met in my class).  I was so excited that I burst out of the group of people and introduced myself (he says I “attacked” him, lol).  

The following week we ended up in the same assigned group for a term-long project, and the rest is history!

August 28, 2008 – Our first date and our dating anniversary. We met online. It was a week and a half before that that i got a message from him on FB saying he saw my profile on match. I thought he was kinda cute so i replied. We started messaging then instant messaging then texting and then calling. I was like a kid in the candy store after that first phone call – dancing around in my room cus i was going out with this totally awesome guy.  We met up at an italian restaurant nearby and i pulled in and I remember just looking at him standing next to his mustang holding a single red rose and I thought – “oh he’s cute!” and then we went on with the date like we’ve known each other our whole lives. We’re perfect for each other.
