Were you looking?

When you met your DH/SO were you actively looking for a romantic relationship?

When I met DH I had just gotten out of a TERRIBLE, emotionally abusive and manipulative relationship and decided that the best course of action for me was to just go out and have some fun, stop looking for the man of my dreams and just have a good time.

I was on a social networking site talking to...well alot of different guys lol....and Rich just stood out from the rest...but I was so not wanting to be anything other than friends that he had to damn near blackmail me into going out with him blackmail ever! lol

Do were you looking for romance or did someone have to do some convincing? lol

  • No, I wasn't. In fact I didn't want anything to do with my husband but he wouldn't stop talking to me and I had no real reason to block or ignore him because he was a nice guy and not a pervert or anything. I didn't even have feelings for him till about 3-4 months after talking almost daily. We're very opposite people but he just kind of grew on me.

  • I wasn't looking. He was my BFF and it just seemed natural.

    While he persued me, it wasn't forceful. Just letting me know that he was there and cared.

  • We were 15 and 17...I don't think we were looking for life partners, but we were looking for someone to date. I don't think we counted on what it grew into, but never say never. LOL

  • I wasn't looking at all. I had been in two long term relationships prior to meeting dh, and one ended really badly, the other one didn't end as bad, but it broke my heart because we just couldn't agree on what we wanted. I had decided that I was taking a break from men. He (dh) had asked me for my phone number one night while I was out at the bar (he was the bouncer) and I gave it to him, but ignored his calls for an entire month! lol. I finally talked to him one day, we hung out the next day and have been inseparable ever since. I am so glad I took that chance and answered that final call, because now we have been together 7 years and have four beautiful children together :)

  • I had just gotten out of a relationship. An unhealthy one. I was browsing Myspace and came upon his profile. He just stuck out from the rest and I wrote him. It all happened from there.

  • Oh and I wasn't looking. Infact I was certain I wasn't going to date for a really, really long time.

    Answer by JazzlikeMraz at 10:12 PM on Mar. 23, 2011

  • We were both looking, but not ready to jump. I was just nearly the end of my divorce and he got out of a difficult relationship. We knew what we wanted but didn't want to go about things the wrong way.
