    I met DH in 2001 when we lived in the same apartment complex. He moved in to an apartment downstairs from me and pursued me for 3 months before I finally gave in. We dated for 4.5 years before we got engaged and married a year later on 7/7/07.

    DH and I met in college. We knew who each other were for a couple of years (common friends), but never hung out. When I was in my 4th year (him his 3rd lol) back in 2004, I had to eat at the cafeteria at odd times due to class schedule and he adjusted his eating times so he could eat with me a few times a week. It was nice not eating by myself and we soon started hanging out more. Mostly we watched bad TV together, went to a few college events together, watched movies in our apartments, etc. Within a couple of months we were dating and a couple of months after that completely helpless in love.
    Interestingly, just a week before school started that semester my boyfriend of 3 years broke up with me. Everyone thought DH was a rebound guy, but I knew he wasn't. I'm really grateful that he trusted me when I told him that he wasn't a rebound. We planned our full Catholic wedding in 9 weeks (yay for military lol) and were married November 4, 2006.

    DH and I "met" just after I graduated high school in 2004 and started dating in Dec of that year. He actually worked with and was friends with my Mom. My Mom and her bf had just broken up and we moved into a new place and let a girl she worked with room with us, so there were lots of after work gatherings of people who worked with them, and DH (as well as my Mom's current bf) were always over. Technically, DH and I had met many years before that because I was often at my Moms work, and he had worked there on and off for years.

    The tricky thing was that I was only 18 and he was 28 at the time So I ended up being the one pursuing him, because he didn't want to upset my Mom or seem like a huge perv lol. My Mom eventually gave him her blessing to date me, and we've been together ever since. We got engaged after a year and a half of dating and we got married 6 months after that in Dec/06.

    DH and I met in 2002 when I was in 10th grade. I was dating someone and we met at a point of grace concert that our two seperate youth groups were at. We hit it off quickly and were instant friends. We stayed friends until 2005, when the same relationship I was in when I met him ended. He "stalked" me and would show up at the store I worked at. I even stood him up on two dates. I eventually gave in and went out with him, and it turned out that we were really compatable. We were instantly taken with each other, and were married in late 2006.

    such an interesting variety of stories!!

    DH and I met online in Jan. 2006! LOL... After a few initial messages sent through the site, we started on MSN - after over a week of spending at least an hour per night on MSN, we met for dinner... and that was it... from that point on, I spent almost every weekend at his place (we lived about a half hour drive apart) for the next year and a half. We moved in together in Sept 2007 and were married in August 2008.

    My DH and I are online geeks, as well. We met through eHarmony (start the sappy commercial music .) Matched up, chatted for a week and met 2 weeks later. (After several LONG phone conversations, and I HATE to talk on the phone, so that was significant.) We've been pretty much inseparable ever since. Got engaged about a year and a half after we met. Married 6 months later (June 2010) and trying to get pg ever since!

    We met at my high school graduation in 2002!

    Back story. My mom and MIL work together. MIL was invited to my graduation party but couldn't make it so she sent DH to deliver the card. I thought he was cute so in the Thank You Card I wrote "It was nice meeting you, we should hang out some time! Give me a call, 555-1234" Thankfully he called and we've been together ever since!

    "juicy details"

    3 months after we started dating he was deployed to Bosnia. Before leaving he gave me a promise ring. Christmas 2004 he asked me to marry him. Our wedding date was set for October 29, 2005 was supposed to be our wedding date but that May he found out he would be leaving in September for Iraq. Instead we got married (very quick, family and a few very close friends only) on July 29, 2005. After he came home from Iraq (he was gone for 2 years) we had a big wedding and renewal of vows on September 8, 2007. Some years I convince him to celebrate both anniversaries even though we agreed to celebrate on Sept 8th. We found out we were pregnant with Lexi on Nov 23, 2007 and then found out we were expecting Zayne April 1, 2008.

    DH and I met at our church in 2001 when we were in college. I was a sophomore and he was a freshman. I remember my first thought when I met him was, "This guy is crazy!" But over the course of the next two years we became sort of casual friends. We went on a friendly date or two with each other, but nothing serious. Then, in the summer of 2003 he started falling for me. He sought me out to talk to, he offered me rides places, etc. I was still hesitant - he wasn't "my type" at all, and I still thought he was pretty crazy (meaning that he was a class clown type, not that there was anything wrong with him, lol). But he eventually wore me down and we started dating seriously in September of 2003. By the time I was graduating from college (2005), we knew we wanted to get married, but we had a problem: DH's parents.

    You see, DH is Korean and I'm white-American. That in and of itself is not a problem (or at least wasn't to FIL - it might have been a slight problem for MIL), but there were cultural problems. For example, it's very common in Korea these days to have semi-arranged marriages. Children go on arranged dates with people their parents choose for them, and so they get to pick a spouse from a list of "approved applicants". And also, men don't get married until they're very well settled in life.

    So, DH's parents didn't know my parents. That was strike #1. And DH didn't yet have his Masters degree, or PhD, and he didn't own a house. Therefore, he was not old enough to get married (actually, we've been married for almost five years now, and we're still not at the age that they set for us to get married at). Strike #2. And I'm not even Korean, so that just made things that much more difficult (though of course, they've never given me any problems about that since we've been married).

    DH was really worried that he would be disowned for insisting on marrying me, so he waited until he had accepted a job offer and was financially independent of his parents to propose to me. There was a significant uproar for about three months after he broke the news to them, but after that died down everything in the in-law arena has been smooth sailing. DH and I got married in December 2006.
