  • We met at a restaurant we both worked at at the time. We haven't been able to escape the other completely ever since, lol! That was almost 9 years ago. We've been together for 8, married for 3 1/2 yrs and were engaged almost 4 years. He surprised me and proposed 3 days after christmas when I was super stressed w/ fam stuff. I had taken him bk home after my fam get2gether and he asked if i'd consider spending my life w/ him and popped out the ring. It was so simple but caught me sooo off guard, which is hard to do w/ me!

  • We met at work, he was a cook, I was a server/greeter. We met in July, starting hanging out (and sleeping together) in January. Moved in to gether in May... We were together for 2 years before we got married He never proposed. I just told him, if we got married before the baby was born my mom would pay for it... So he agreed.

  • We met at work; while I was in college I was working at an insurance company in their clerical dept and he had already graduated and was working in another dept. We started dating within 3 months of me starting there and 2 years later we moved in together, 3 years later he proposed while we were on vacation in Las Vegas at the top floor of the Stratosphere while we were overlooking the city.
    A year and a half after that we got married and a a year and half after that I got pregnant with twins!
    And so that's my life in a nutshell. LOL

  • We met online around 2000, in a sort of coed version of CafeMom (much, much smaller) and were just email pals for a while, then he got divorced and things got friendlier, lol. We met face to face in 2001, moved in together the next year and got married in 2003 after I got pregnant. I didnt really want to get married again but he convinced me and we got married in the courthouse and didnt tell anybody for about 3 months :-)

  • we met in cooking school - he was friends with the girl who's locker was beside mine in the changerooms. she introduced us, we became friends (best friends actually).

    tried dating about 9months after being friends, "dated" for 3 days and got engaged.

    a year later got married, and that was 11.5 years ago.
