DH and I met in highschool:) I was a Freshman and he was a Senior. We didn’t start dating until I was a Senior in H.S. He had decided to search me on Myspace one day while looking through his old yearbooks and now we’re married!

  • Wedding: April 2012

In 2003, FH and I met during my sophomoore year in high school, while he was a freshman.  I was Team Manager of the Men’s Varsity Basketball team, and he was on the team.  We instantly clicked as friends, even though we had a secret crush on each other.  Unfortunately, after I graduated in 2006, I moved out of the city for college, and he moved to Southern California.  We had little contact with each other, but we always kept up with each other’s MySpace pages.  In February 2011, we randomly saw each other at the mall, and after talking for 20 minutes, we decided to go see a movie together.  After the movie, he asked if I wanted to get something to eat at the nearby Applebee’s.  We ordered our food, and talked for about an hour and a half, without even realizing that our food never arrived.  Needless to say, it was a great and unexpected first date! We got engaged in April 2011.

I was in college and working at Marie Callendar’s.  He came in with some friends that I knew.  We talked a bit and crossed each others paths a couple more times.  He got my number from one of our mutual friends and the rest is history!

Grad school. I tried every trick in the book to get him to ask me out. I even changed my class schedule to be in another class with him. Finally I had to ask him out. Turns out he thought I was already married for some very very very dumb reason :)-

We met online at a free dating site. I mentioned I was going to a local bar to see a band I liked and that he should stop by. We were joined at our first meeting by my mother and two of his best friends (it wasn’t quite as awkward as it sounds!)

Not my FH, yet, but was hoping I could still chime in πŸ™‚ 

They say timing is everything. They also say when you are NOT looking, the one just kind of appears.  Both true in my case!

Every year, one of my best guy friends hosts his annual OSU/Michigan game party at his house.  A lot of people attend, and it is an all day event.  I have attended for the past 7 years, at least, if not more!!  Being a veteran attendee, I can say that at this point, it is the SAME people attending every year.  Usually between 30-50 people.  The year I almost did not go, because I was hungover from a family party the night before, I was told I NEEDED to go.  I was expected there, and so I went.  Albeit crabby.  The party starts at 10am or so each year.

Who would have thought that someone ‘new’ would be in attendance to a party where ‘you know everyone’.  My best guy friend had a new neighbor move into the house next door a year or so prior, and invited him and his friends to join in the fun. 

He pursued me, most of the evening/night, although I had NO interest in meeting anyone.  I finally ‘caved’ to his 10th offer of taking me ‘out’, and the rest is history.  Added bonus, my neighbor is now my best guy friend, and we have a lot of fun hanging out with him and his gf too!

We technically met when we were 4 years old in preschool, but we started dating at the end of 11th grade. We dated for 3 years, broke up for 8 months in college, got back together and he proposed less than a year later.  Now we’re 22 and have been married for 3 months πŸ™‚

I moved to a new state and I was staying with an acquaintance while I got settled and found a job. After 2 weeks I couldn’t handle those roommates anymore and found a place of my own. A 3 bedroom house with 2 roommates. A girl and a really cute guy. Three days after I moved in he took me out to dinner and show me around a bit. We had a great dinner, went dancing, went to Waffle House and stayed out until 5 am. We got married 3 months ago πŸ™‚

AT A WEDDING RESORT!!!!! We both worked there. He quit shortly after I started to finish school, but has a cabin nearby and would always visit.  Kinda had a crush on each other the whole time.  He proposed on the mountain that overlooks the resort and a valley, and we are getting married at the same resort.  Goin’ full circle on this one!!!- Hopefully though, I won’t be expected to have our future child there?

We met in college, in our intro C++ class.  We sat next to each other and made fun of the teacher.
