My DH and I met on Match.com...we talked for 3 weeks on the phone and through IMing and then one Friday night after talking on the phone for 3 hours we realized that we each had nothing to do (actually he was suppose to go on a date that night but was stood up). So we decided to go to a movie (Man On Fire) and afterwards we went to TGIF to talk.

When we left he gave me a hug and said bye. I wasn't going to call him because he didn't try to kiss me or anything so I thought he wasn't interested. Until a friend of mine at the time reminded me that it was a sign of respect and so I called him to go out with the rest of our group to shoot pool.

And the rest is history!

We met at the church where I work. He was my volunteer so we had to talk a lot about projects he had. We ended up being in the same sports teams through the church and just always hung out and had a great time together.

My DH and I met at the hospital we both worked at at the time. He was an ER physician and I was a nurse. Our hospital has an annual foundation ball and some of the nurses were giving him crap for not going and supporting the hospital. He told them he didn't want to go because he didn't have a date so they told him to ask me to go. I'll never forget the moment he asked me to go. He was so shy and nervous about it and told me to call him to tell him my decision. I was so scared to call him to tell I'd go. I didn't know if I should address him by doctor, Dave or what since I had known him as "doctor." We went to the ball and had a great time and hit things off.

I love this! I'm sure it was weird to call him Dave after all that time of knowing him as Dr. Smile

My DH & I met through CraigsList. He had a personal ad & we went on our first date after emailing back and forth for about a week, and talking on the phone. I always joke with people about my good luck with using CraigsList to help me find an apartment after finishing grad school, some living room furniture and then eventually my DH. I also want to mention that he still chose to write me back even though I was outside his ad's stated preferred age range. He was 23 and wrote that he wanted someone between the ages of 21 and 26...and I was a mature 27 at the time Wink
