I met David in March of 2005. He is actually the Brother-In-Law of my second cousin. Doesn't get any more Southern than that! He was ready to jump into a relationship, and I wasn't even divorced yet. I had just seperated from my husband, and had no desire to settle down again. We talked but didn't date until the end of August of 2005. We were married in May of 2006.

I met Jason on May 2nd, 1997 at a bar...Really bad, right? Well, it just so happens that I had decided about two months earlier that I was done with stupid men and relationships for a while. I had 2 kids that I needed to take care of, and probably no good men out there would want a woman who already had kids, right? So on May 2nd, my friends and I were having a girls night out...not on a man hunt (half were already married), but just out to have a good time catching up and talking. Well, we were sitting in this annex part of a bar away from most of the noise, and the dart boards were in there. Jason and his friend were playing darts and started talking to us. But I didn't pay too much attention cause I wasn't looking for anybody. 11:00 rolled around and I decided it was time to go home, so I got up, said it was nice to meet you and left. Next morning, my friend called and asked what I had thought of him, I couldn't remember what he even looked liked, then she said he had given her his card after I had left and told her to tell me to call him. Then she said the only reason she was even telling me about the card was because he wasn't drinking... He had plain iced tea the whole night, so she didn't think he was more of what I had decided I didn't need. Well, the following week was my son's birthday, and that's when she gave me his card, then I had to wait until Monday to call him. I was really really nervous. I was 27 and had NEVER called a boy first. Well, I plucked up some nerve from somewhere deep down inside me, because 11 years later here we are: a house, a dog, and YES...there are really good men out there who want a woman who already has 2 children, (and gives her 2 more!)

A very special THANK YOU to Bokkechick for my gorgeous new siggy!

DH and I worked together. We started working together June 2001 but didn't start dating until around October 2002.

SO's brother and my friend hooked us up by dragging us along on a double date one night.. I was already dating someone else but DH was determined to make me his, and sure enough he did!

Dec 1996 I think he came back from visiting his family in England for the christmas break. I just hired in as a YMCA staff member and met him a few weeks later.

I met Derek in August of '89 when I was a freshman in college. We both played sports and met through some other ball players.

I have known DH since I was in 4th grade. He was in Boy Scouts with my brother. We had our first date at a local country fair. We dated for a week when I turned 16 (we were each other's first kiss ). A week later, I broke up with him and started dating one of his good friends . We stayed friend's throughout high school but lost touch in college. In 1997, we bumped into each other at a local carnival and got to talking. I went away to Germany for a few weeks but set up a date when I got back at the same fair that we had our first first date. We have been together ever since.

Thank you Jaidynsmum for my wonderful siggy!
