LOVE reading how everybody met. Some are so funny!!!

Here’s ours:

On the bus to our first ski team meet our sophomore year of high school. I was snuggling with my then-BF (him and Fiance were “friends”), and now-FI started talking to us. We then spent every week together skiing and talked in the one class we discovered we had together. Despite having SOs, we were crushing a little on each other. The following fall we were both single, had a bunch of classes together, and BOOM.

I was standing with my back to the door of a bar.  His cousin (my old roommate) set us up and I was terrified to look at him.  My roommate had told me “Not to be weird but I think my cousin is really hot” Knowing that our taste in “hotness” differed vastly I was scared I wouldn’t be attracted to him.  I turned around and was surprised at how hot he actually was/is.  I knew that night after talking to him for about 3 hours that I was going to marry him.

We met in college through a mutual friend. 

My guy friend A came over to my apartment one day and told me that one of his friends lived in my apartment complex too (it was all college kids because it was right next to campus) and asked if I wanted to go over there with him.  We walked into Mr. S’s apartment, and I remember that he and his roommates had a huge beer pong table set up in his living room and were playing in the middle of the day, haha.  Typical college kids.

We didn’t start dating until six years later though.  We had seen each other from time to time through our mutual friends but were never single at the same time.  One day, after talking to guy friend A, I started reminiscing and sent Mr. S a message on FB to see how he was doing.  We were both single and both back in our shared hometown and he asked if I wanted to get together to catch up.  That somehow turned into a date, and we’ve been together since then!

I first saw him in a small local town walking around with his group of friends. I started squealing when I saw him cause I just felt this insane crazy draw to him. She still teases me about that to this very day. Facepalm.

I said that I had to somehow meet him, and I did indeed meet him much later that night at a bar and restaurant with a small dancing area. We ended up dancing but he didn’t ask for my phone number. (He was shy!). I drove home that night with a few close friends and told my sister the next day how I had met this incredible man, but didn’t even get his last name or number!

Almost exactly a month later, I saw him again in that town. About a half hour away from my hometown. I guess it must be fate since we ran into each other again when I didn’t even live in his town and his town had a population of 70,000 while my city was around 500,000+. 

Our first official date was exactly a month to the very day when we first saw each other.
