We went to church together as teenagers, but didn't really "know" each other (he was 3 years older than me - not many 18 year old boys pay attention to 15 year old girls Smile )

Once he was 22 and back from his 2 year church mission, and I was 19, we attended church together again in a University-aged congregation. 22 and 19, a little more acceptable than 18 and 15 Smile We started dating at the end of October 2004, got engaged in January 2005, and got married in June 2005. During the time we were dating, his family lived 5 houses away from my family.....we saw a lot of each other Wink

I can't believe it will be 8 years this summer.

Myspace, then we chatted a bunch on yahoo, or aim. We got into several heated arguments and he got blocked and unblocked several times. One night I was staying at my dads house and it wasn't to far from where he was staying and I asked him to come over and hang out. That was October 2005 and we've been together since.

We met on a dating website... Plenty of fish I think. We talked a lot around the Fourth of July 2010 and he scared me off with his plans to get married and start a family right away. I texted him in January 2011 and we were married July 2 2011 and had dd nov 3 2011 (due nov 21 Sandra!). Guess he knew I was ready more than I did Smile

My high school BFF had just started dating now-DH's roommate while I was away for the summer before senior year of high school and as soon as I got home, she drug me with her so she wasn't the only girl in a house of four guys. DH wasn't even there initially and showed up later with this girl he was sort of dating at the time so I tried to not pay much attention to him, but he's Mr. Center of Attention so it was hard not to. Within a week, we discovered we have a lot in common and he'd given the other girl the heave-ho (oops...oh well). So this was August 2003, we casually dated for about 5 months (as in still dating other people here and there), then seriously dated for the next 2 years, got engaged in March '06, married in July '06.

Met on campus at the end of sophomore year of college, started dating junior year and got married pretty much the second graduation was over. We were 21 and 22 when we got married and it'll be ten years this summer. Smile

DH and I met in university. He was in 2nd year and I was taking a night course to see if I could hack it back at Uni. He was in that English class with me and was a BIG J.E.R.K. I really hated his arrogant nature. LOL. Then the next year I started full time in the same program he was in 3rd year of. We ran into each other several times but I wasn't really there for a relationship (and I sort of still hated him). Anyways, apparently I came around. He can still be super arrogant but I just call him on it now. Blum 3

in a liquor store.

lol!

But, yes we did. I was a wine consultant and he was an account manager for a beer distributor. He had my store as his account. He was so shy at first and it took him weeks to ask me out. It was sweet. We were pretty much together after our first date.

At a wedding! Then we went on one date and chatted a bunch. Then I blew him off for a year Smile Then we started talking again and were engaged 5 months later (after only seeing each other on 4 occasions). We had a year and a half engagement and we were long distance the whole time until we were married.

DH and I also met at church; I was 15 and he was 18 (too funny Sandra). We started dating pretty soon after we met and just stuck together. I still prefer to spend time with him more than anyone else, to this day. Smile We will be together 21 yrs tomorrow actually and have been married 12 yrs (13 in August).
