Another thread inspiring me to start this one. I think a lot of chickies here have really great stories on how they met our significant other. So how did you meet him? What was the first significant thing (date, conversation, look, etc)? When did you realize he was the one?
Come on ladies, share your "aaaaawwwwwwww" inspiring stories!! :)
I haven't met mine yet, but I think when I do, one of the first significant things I'll ask him is "what took you so bloody long???" jk LOL :-)

... My best friend in high school has 2 older brothers. Eventually, one fell for me (conveniently right around the time I fell for him) and as they say, the rest was history.
It was interesting, because I'd known him for a long time but he wasn't my type - jock, party guy, and someone who enjoyed teasing girls (but not in a flirtatious way, more like to seriously irritate). While I thought he was reasonably good looking, for many reasons I never considered dating him. Several of my other friends crushed on him off and on, but never me... until the last time.

This sounds horrible, but we met online on a dating site. neither of us were looking for anything serious, we were just single, bored and wanted more friends in the city. I joke a lot that I wasn't making much money, so couldn't afford to eat very well, so depended on him for a few dinner dates to get some proper food in me! We spent a lot of time together, just casually, and I guess we got used to each other, as when he went away for 6 weeks to Belgium I missed him intensely, and he me. He called me from Belgium to ask me to be his girlfriend, and when I said yes promptly put his dad on the line to introduce us :) He proposed jokingly many times, and now we are tying the know in 3 months!
For a while we were telling people we met at the library, or at a party thrown by a mutual friend, because online dating sounded so...desperate? Still not sure. But we knew people would disapprove, especially our parents. But it's true, we found each other on the web!
|aaaaawwww !!!!! sorry but it had to be said :) on Jul 09, 2009 @ 11:43 pm|
mamaluv: you're best friends brother? aaaawwwww thats so sweet!!!! :) sooooooo... how did you figure out he was the one for you? :) i love happy endings..hehe
nessie: you met your prince online on a dating site??? omg you mean those sites actually work?? You lucky girl!!! You have absolutely nothing to be ashamed about!! If you think about it, when you meet someone traditionally (in person) lots of superflous events make it so you really don't get to know-know the person from the start. You're too busy doing the whole 'dating' thing - movies, dinner, impressing, dressing up, being who you think you should be instead of who you are. When talking to someone online, you are in your own home where you feel the most secure, and can completely be yourself, and same with him. You are talking, not checking eachother out, so you really stand the chance of getting to know the person on a deeper level faster.
I have to tell you, one of my bestest friends met her husband online, and she just gave birth to her second beautiful child a few days ago. She is deliriously happy! In fact she's so happy that her parents actually sometimes warn her that life isn't always this rosy, etc because they're scared she won't be able to handle it if something doesn't go *perfectly*. She's so happy in fact that often when I'm feeling down, I call her just to cheer myself up :)
|Oh gosh...it's a looong story... on Jul 14, 2009 @ 12:06 am|
This may seem really lame but I hated my man our first date. Hated him. We met through some mutual friends (whom neither of us really talk to anymore) and one night I guess he was bored and asked me out. I, myself had nothing to do that night so I agreed to go out with him. He picked me up in his shiny BMW with thick tinted windows with rap music just blaring. I'm into none of that crap but was still pretty open minded at that point. So we go to this fancy lounge and he sits on his blackberry paying attention to me enough to tell me how awesome he is. Like he is the greatest guy ever... I drink myself into a tizzy with Cosmos all night and then proceed to tell him about all my ex's and heartache (this is a total recipe for disaster right? I know!). Anyways he takes me back to his place and I guess he thought I was into him and tried to kiss me. Me being mega drunk bite his lip so hard that it bleed and then pass out.
So after that night he tried to ask me out again and it just wasn't right. I ignored his calls, texts, you name it. He tried for a little bit but after a few weeks he moved on.
A year later I get a text from my friend saying that he was asking about me. I asked what he said and it was really sweet so I decided to text him. We texted each other a little bit and then he was so gentlemanly enough to pick me up from a concert really late at night to make sure I got home ok. We have been together ever since the night of the concert and that was well over a year ago. I have never loved to much in my entire life. I love his family (his nieces and nephews call me auntie :) ) and his family treat me like i'm amazing.
Love is a strange and amazing thing.
|graduate school on Jul 14, 2009 @ 06:54 am|
My husband and I first met in graduate school in Indiana. For the 4
years I was there we were friends and shared many mutual friends.
While we each crushed on the other, we never acted as one or the other
was always 'occupied'. About 1.5 years later we got back in touch via
IM. At this point I was in California and he was in Florida. We
chatted via IM and phone for 6 months. Then he booked a ticket to head
to California to visit. We've been together ever since.
