I met my DH at a bar :eek: no really I did! and we were both drunk as skunks

I went with 2 of my girlfriends, and he was there with one of his best friends and bf's roomate (an exchange student from Japan). DH told the exchange student (ugh! can't remember his name right now!) he should go talk to us and bring us back to their table, so imagine this teeny tiny Japanese dude coming up to 3 tall white girls and asking us in broken english to come over to their table. I saw DH, my jaw dropped cuz I thought he was GORGEOUS and scooted my drunk a$$ over to their table. It was right before last call, so we talked for maybe 10 minutes then had to leave....I left with him and his friends, my friends left together. Classy, right? Don't judge :rolleyes:

anyhoo....found out that he was just home for a few days, (this was the Sat after Thanksgiving) and had to fly out on Tuesday morning to one of the training facilities (Missouri? seriously what is wrong with my brain today?) where they train right before they deploy, he was deploying to Iraq for a year (Army National Guard). We spent all day Sunday together, he came to my house, he stayed over. I had to work monday, he stayed at my house while I was at work, after work I drove him down to where he was going to meet up with his buddies the next morning and we stayed in a hotel, I had to wake up super early (we were about 2 hours away from my house/work) to get to work, we said goodbye, and I didn't see him for another 6 months. He went back to training in Missouri? a few weeks later left for Iraq. we talked/emailed just about every day and got to know each other better. I knew he was the one. He got his leave about mid-deployment and we spent 2 weeks on vacation together, we went to California and played on the beach, he met my family, I met his family, etc etc etc....then he left again. he got home just before his birthday in Dec. 2006, and he moved in with me. We got engaged Dec 23rd, married Aug 24 of 2007. Got pg with DD April of 2008

and here we are today LOL

That story is what movies are made of Lesli! So cute :O)

DH and I were introduced by my brother.

DH works with my brother and was going through a divorce. My bro mentioned to him a few times that he knew a girl he'd like him to meet. DH always said no. One day DH asked, "Who is this girl?" and my bro said, "My sister." DH said "NO WAY!!!".

But eventually we met and when we did, it was all over. Smile

Lesli, your story IS a movie premise. For sure! Love it.
Deirdre, good thing he finally came around huh? Biggrin
Katie, dang girl! 13 years! Wow. That is amazing.

My DH and I have been together for 5 years but only married for 5 weeks. Newly weds here. Lol.
Our story. I worked with his cousin and he kept telling me I needed to meet him. Because I kept ending up with losers. Lol! We started chatting on yahoo and then he was supposed to come help me move out of my apt and into my house one day. He stood me up!!! (Nerves, he said later)I almost never talked to him again (woman scorned) But eventually we re-connected. Our first date was on my parents wedding anny so it must have been meant to be. Smile
