    • Wedding: April 2009

    We met at a gay bar… yeah, you read that right.  He worked there and I assumed he was gay.  When I found out he wasn’t, I gave him my number but he blew me off.  (I found out later he had just gone through a messy breakup with this psycho girl.)  A couple years later, we re-connected, started hanging out and soon we were inseparable.

    • Wedding: September 2008

    We met on a traffic stop, we’re both in law enforcement. We had initially been introduced in the dispatch center and later i heard him pull over a car so I went over to back him up on the stop. We stood and talked for awhile with lights still flsahing, lol. I mentioned to him that I spend time on Myspace and low and behold, he sent me a message with his phone number and we talked for awhile then met for breakfast at 4:00 am. We became an official couple about a week after that and got married september 2008.

    • Wedding: October 2009

    I met him on my first day of work at Starbucks. He was the first regular customer whose name I memorized (other than my Dad) and as I understand it, he became an even-more regular customer after I started, since he couldn’t really figure out what my work schedule was. Hee. He asked me out on a date over the drink hand-out bar the day after we hung out outside of Starbucks for the first time. It was about 2 months after I started working there. He said he would’ve asked me earlier, but he and a number of my coworkers had a misunderstanding that I’d be leaving for school several states away at the end of the summer.

    • Wedding: December 1969

    My office had a bet going for the last World Cup. Each employee drew two teams. I drew Italy and Tunisia. My Italian co-worker drew America and France. We decided since we’d drawn each other’s countries we should watch the match together. My co-worker brought his roommate, who is now my Fiance, the the pub to watch the match with us :-).

    p.s. Italy and the USA tied, 1-1. We’ve always considered that a bit ironic, as in real life we both ‘scored’ as well.

    p.p.s. And we DID NOT plan it like this, but the first time the USA and Italian national teams will meet again will be our wedding day.

    • Wedding: May 2010

    We met playing kickball as adults.  He had just moved to the area and joined with his coworker/roommate, and I joined with my roommates.  At the beginning of the season, I remember trying to talk to him and he sort of ignored me (he denies this, of course).  A few months later, I was sitting near him at a party and we finally ended up talking for awhile, and that was that.

    • Wedding: June 2010

    We met in college while taking a summer session course in accounting.  Special circumstances had to happen for us to meet.  I had just completed my freshman year of college, and I had yet to take a break from school (took winter session).  I had already signed up for accounting, thinking I might consider majoring in business and it would help me get into the major.  I wanted to drop it to enjoy my summer and finally get a much needed break, but I was just too lazy and never got around to it.

    My fiance had failed linguistics 101 and couldn’t graduate on time that spring.  He needed to take one more elective course, and he chose accounting because his uncle advised him it would be helpful in the big world.  He added the class the day before summer session started.  Because he was late to join, he was randomly added to my group.  

    A lot had to happen for us to meet, and I’m glad it did.

    We met during my college freshman orientation.  I was auditioning for the marching band, and they had current members of the band help take you through the audition process.  I met him and two of his friends (who are 2 of our groomsmen) that day.  We became friends for a long time (um…10 years!) and then finally started dating! 🙂

    We played on a co-ed softball team for months before either one got the nerve to talk to the other one. Then one night, not even at a softball game, we ended up hanging out with some mutual friends and he got my number and from then on we’ve been together.

    We met at college our Freshman year through mutual friends.  He asked a friend to find out if I might be interested in dating him, but I told her "Hell, no!"  Luckily, he was persistent; we went out about a month into the school year and haven’t been apart since!

    We met in college, but through a campus organization so I checked both. I was a freshman and he was a sophmore. It took a while before we officially started dating though.
