How did you meet your husband or SO?


I met DH through a friend while I was a senior in high school. I already had a boyfriend and this friend, Heather, liked Jeremy so I didn't really pay much attention to him. She was younger than me by 2 years so he was a lot older than her (he's 5 years older than me). He wasn't really interested in her.

I broke up with my BF and he knew about it. One day he came to where I worked and left a note on my car asking me to call him. I did and he asked me to a movie. We went out that night and have been together ever since. Heather and I are no longer friends over it but oh well. We've been together for 10 1/2 years now and we've been married for 8 1/2.

We actually met in AIT (training following basic in the Army). We were the "forbidden AIT love". We waited 6 months until we got married, which wasn't long. He would drive through the night from Fort Bragg, NC to Cleveland, Ohio just about every other weekend.

One of my cousins introduced us two years ago. Then we didn't see each other again for 3 months. When we ran into each other again it was like seeing an old friend and we talked the whole night. We pretty much spent all our free time together since.

We actually met over the phone.
One of my friends boyfriends who lived in NY introduced us.
Eli asked me to come visit for his birthday not thinking I would, I showed up!
We've been together ever since. 3 years next month!!

On the internet. It is a very long story but to make it short we decided because he was so much older and I so much younger it was just friends. We talked to each other everyday and about the dates we were going on then one day I realized I truly liked him and we fell in love!!! Still are very much in love to this day!!!!

I was a cocktail waitress and his mom was one of my regulars. Kept telling me I had to meet her son and I kept putting her off. She brought him in and I blew him off for a couple months, he wore me down and we've been inseperable since. Together 5 years in December, married 3 in June.

We met on the internet actually. I had just been in a bad breakup (bf of 2 years cheated and got a chick pg). I signed up for this dating site just on a whim because I saw it in a magazine. I just put a pic up and some basic info. He emailed me some generic reponse because it was a pay for service and both of us were too cheap to actually pay for it. I went to his page and saw he had his AOL screen name on there. I saved him to my buddy list and a couple of minutes later he popped up. We chatted for a couple of hours on there and then we talked the whole night on the phone from like 6pm to 4am...LOL! We've been inseparatable ever since.

I first met DH new year's eve 2002 at a small party a friend was hosting. I had noticed him that evening but didn't talk to him. I was laying down on the couch toward the end of the evening and he came along and sat on my feet (to this day I still have no idea why). I told him to get off my feet. He did. 2002 came and went. On new year's eve of 2003, a friend told me we were going to the new year's party of a good friend of his. Lo and behold, DH was hosting it. He didn't sit on my feet that time and fate took over. The rest is history.

We met through mutual friends just before starting college in 1996. He dated my cousin who I lived with, for a year and I had a couple of bf's in between. Then spring 2000 we started hanging out alot more together (he gave me his original NES for my birthday and we played all night!), I was living alone by then, and the rest is history! We've been together since 2000 and married since 2008

We worked at a truck stop when I was in college. He actually helped me when a customer threatened to rape me after work. He was my hero. He walked me to my car every night and one day he asked me out and we have been together ever since.

Yeah...I usually tell people that we met "out and about". But I feel the same way. We lived less than 10 minutes from each other but I promise you that we would have never met had it not been for the internet. I can't imagine what life would be like without him.

I met DF online. LOL It was actually through HotorNot. He wanted to "meet" me and I remember almost clicking no, but I thought "What the heck. I'll talk to him." LOL
We talked online for 4 months and during that time, although I hadn't met him yet, he helped me through a MONSTER breakdown I was going through. I could talk to him about anything and he was the entire reason I got better. I was on medication to try and help, talking to therapists..nothing worked or helped..but he did. 4 months after meeting online, we met in person and moved in together the following month. 6 months after moving in together, we became pregnant with Spencer. I must say that I have been through my fair shares of the bad bfs and jerks and I truly did not believe such a great guy could ever exist but I'm so lucky and happy that I found him!! Almost 3 years later we are still going strong and plan to be married in a couple of months!

We are another one of those Internet Couples. We started talking in a Lycos Chat room back in '97. It was the end of my junior year in high school and his senior year. We had spent the next 4 years talking via email, snail mail and the phone. I even endured him getting a girl pregnant, marrying her and then talking about divorcing her(whole other story). We had finally met in person when I rode the Grey hound bus from PA clear to WA. I arrived the 9th of July. He proposed the 11th, and signed his divorce papers on the 13th. I was there when his ex picked him up to sign the papers. I moved out to WA by the end of the month and we have been together since. We got married September 29, 2002 when he got home from Basic and AIT. Now we are expecting our 6th baby together come the end of September beginning of October. This is our last baby.
