    I met my husband because something was wrong with my brakes. He helped me fix them...well actually he fixed them. I was in nursing school at the time and was really struggling financially. He has been around ever since.

    It's been twenty-five years since I met my husband, but I still remember the first moment I laid eyes on him........

    I'd just started a new job working at an auto-detail shop, when I looked up to see this tall, dark and handsome man, who was wearing a muscle shirt and buffing a car top. My tongue must have been hanging out, because my boss, Marv, immediately chuckled and said, "Oh, yes, that's Bill.......all the girls fall in love the instant they get a look at him!"

    Well, I didn't know about 'all the girls', but I certainly had a few ideas of my own, and of course Marv introduced us right away. It also happened that Bill had the most beautiful brown eyes I'd ever seen, and I fell into them instantly. But no sooner were the 'how-do-you-dos" said than my hopes were dashed: "Oh, by the way," Bill said, "I'm engaged."

    I could have kicked myself for being so obvious!! Here was this great-looking guy, and I must've looked like an alligator closing in for the kill as I assessed him from head to toe. But even at the tender age of 21, I still had some morals, and leaving engaged men alone was among the tenets I lived by.

    Funny thing was, he didn't leave me alone. First we started out just chatting every so often, then he'd buy me coffee or lunch from the 'roach coach' and sit with me during breaks, and then finally one day I came in to work only to be literally swept off my feet and bear-hugged right in the middle of the shop!! When I'd recovered a bit, I just had to know: "What happened? You told me you were engaged."

    "It's over," he announced, and hugged me again. "Want to go out with me?"

    Well, one thing led to another, and within three weeks of that first date, we were engaged......and within three months more, we were married. It was a whirlwind courtship that no one who knew either of us believed would last, but here we are, a quarter of a century later........and the rest, as they say, is history.

    When I was in grade school. He was older but his cousins lived next door and he would come up on weekends and we would all play ball and such. Once in Jr. High I was standing on the steps to the field and the steps gave way, he and his friend carried me to the nurse. Many, many things placed us together but we never dated until we were grown, he was divorced, he asked me out, I said no, we talked for weeks, went out and have been together ever since. Thirty-six years in May.

    I met my husband in a bar, 13 years ago. He asked what I was doing the next day. I told him I had to work... which I did! Later, I found out through a mutual friend that he did not believe me, because the next day happened to be Sunday and Mother's Day, which he just could not believe that anyone had to work on Sunday, let alone a holiday.
    I guess after 13 years, he finally believes me.

    I met my husband at a Fourth of July barbeque. Was never totally sure why I was even invited, it was held by a co-worker that I wasn't especially close to, but as I was leaving work that day, she said to me that she was having this party and I could bring a guest. I wasn't seeing anyone, and a friend said she was bored and would like to go, so off we went. Fate, baby....

    i remember this like it was yesterday!!

    met my husband on a blind date in oct. 1968. i opened the door & saw him & my first thought was "oh my, this guy is really nice looking, but i wish he wasn;t so short!!" he was 5 ft 9 in.

    we dated for 5 years off and on before getting married.

    on that first date, i knew if i ever married it would be him!!

    I was working as a server in a little Mediterranean restaurant and one day at lunch, I waited on this very handsome guy, who seemed to think I was pretty cute as well. He left me a very generous tip and went on his merry way.

    It was just a few weeks before Christmas, and a friend of mine who happened to have a house on the "it" street in college was having a cocktail party and invited everyone on her street, as well as our usual group of friends. It just so happened that my generous tipper from lunch that day lived on that particular street, and was at the party. After a little wine, I guess I was feeling froggy and I approached him. We hit it off immediately and he ended up taking me home that night. That was nine years ago and we've been together ever since. :blushkiss

    I met my husband during nursing school at the only place within a 20 mile radius that served mixed drinks...a small town bar. He was dancing with another girl all night, I just waited patiently until finally we made eye contact. Two years later, we got married on a rock and roll radio station live with 100 other couples. On Valentine's Day it will be 13 years. :kiss
