Makes me smile to think about.  No great story but but wow....11.27.02...... my sister was still here and we decided to go out because it was about to be Thanksgiving and the rest of the family went to San Diego to be with our brothers.  

We were singing and clowning and having fun.  My song that I requested came on and he was the tallest in the building so I pulled him on the dance floor.  We danced.  He called me later.  We talked until the sun came up.  Got married 17 months later.  Now knee deep in real life working, parenting, budgeting, making it work and it's still good.  I mean like we just broke our second bed in four years good Wink

My mom and dad met at a New Year's Eve party.  My dad hat a pack of cigarettes in his shirt pocket.  My mom saw them and went to ask for one.  He says he knew from the moment he saw her they would get married.  She says she doesn't know why he started sweating profusely and stuttering LOL  They got married March 10, less than 3 1/2 months later.  Been together 38 years.

very cliche ... at the mall 

I got caught in the rain downtown, my hair, my makeup, my suit, total mess, so I was trying to make it through the mall without anyone seeing me ... he tried to approach me a few times which I thought was ridiculous but I finally gave him my number after I heard what he had to say

we talked on the phone for about a week, had a date, been together ever since

we commuted together for a while except for Fridays.  The parking garage was 2 blocks away though. We'd hold hands all the way to the building and release as we approached the outdoor steps lol. Then we did sep,. cars for a few years.

It wasn't a big secret, we just didn't tell people. The company owners were at our wedding.

 One lady found out and said 'I knew yall were married but just not to each other.' LOL

we met at a party when i was 18. we talked for a little bit and it was nice, but i went off w/ a different guy b/c his breath stank and i wasnt having it and i thought he looked funny but i was drunk so i didn't really know. 

he showed up at my door the next day w/ my purse and i thought he was kind and looked handsome when i was sober. he asked me out, i said yes, and we've been together ever since...this july it will be 8 years

We met at the training for a promo we did years ago for Cingular wireless (yes that long ago) & a new phone they were launching during Christmas '04. It was like a 2way type device. So all it did was text, IM & email. I was having issues with my device and he was sitting behind me. He helped me figure out how to make mine work & we exchanged info. 6 mos later we kept in touch & started dating. Got engaged last Summer. Getting married next April. :)

I missed this part earlier. That's an interesting take on it. Never thought about it that way before . People did used to say that we'd get bored with each other living and working together. I didn't understand because working together while being secretely married  seemed to add  more excitement to the relationship (probably the secret part). I even had more fun picking out my clothes for the week when he was working thereEmbarrassed. So I think you're right about the role play thing. 
 After he left.....

do you still work together?

did you ever tell ppl about it at work?


Posted By: PurplePhase
Date Posted: Jun 01 2013 at 10:51pm
yes we still sort of work together but not for that company.

people would find out that we were married. But because of the type of company it was, there were a lot of new employees each year. The 'real employees' knew. Whenever new people would get hired, they  wouldn't know we were married for a while; sometimes never.

One year we walked into the Holiday Party together and [I was told] a woman who I had worked with in the past said "oh they came together?" and another coworker told her "Why wouldn't they come together, they've been married for 5 years!"  She approached me later that night all loud: "I didn't know yall were married!!!" lol

We met through a mutual friend a few years ago but lost touch when he moved back home to AL.
Reconnected and have been together ever since.

This is my first LDR but we make it work and it's actually been the easiest relationship I've ever had.
Had to up my plan to unlimited minutes though because we talk so damn much LOLHeart

It's probably not that special or anything, but I always think it's so romantic how they fell in love thru letters and over the phone and pictures.

my nephew (he's about the same age as me and my sis)  knew the guy from his church and thought he'd be good for my sis. My sis was living in NC and the guy and nephew were in DC. Sis was introduced to the guy  over the phone and they began writing letters back n forth and exchanged pictures. Letter writing continued for 8 months or so. He proposed in a letter and she said yes.  She made a trip to DC to meet him and accept the ring. They had a huge lavish wedding a year later and just celebrated their 25th anniversary this weekend.

they will never know Confused


LOL I always wondered what (if anything) parents told their kids about how they met when there was some drama involved. Like I know a couple that met as neighbors, began an affair and ended up walking out on their spouses (no notes left on the table or anything) and running away together. I wonder what they tell their daughter when they tell the 'how we met' story.LOL

Since I don't have a story of my own, I'll share my parents'. Mom was trying to get her study on. Dad was like "who's that fine jive turkey over there, I GOT to talk to her". Dad walks over and interrupts her study and talks that good game. Got mom's number, 30 years later..living happily ever after.

I could be off on the years though...somewhere between 28-30 years. Would have to call them to confirm, but well...it's late. LOL

I was trying on my d├ębutante dress at home. My childhood friend (our parents were childhood bffs) dropped by unannounced since he was in the neighborhood. I threw on a terry cloth sweat suit (Juicy Couture phase ) and ran to meet him outside. He had his boy with him in his car. I said hello to this stranger, stranger nodded then starred out the car window as I carried on my quick catch up convo with friend. They left. I get a call later from my friend saying that I left his friend speechless and he want to give me his number. I told my friend no b/c he should have spoke up himself.

Two weeks later, I'm in a car accident with my mom. My friend comes to visit me at hospital and by the time I got home from the hospital the stranger had left me a voicemail expressing his concerned and well wishes. I called back. We dated senior year of H.S. and off and on after I went away to college. We reconnected when i moved back home. So here we are years later and hopefully happily ever after

We met at a bar. I was drunk (as I normally was at the time) and he told me to slow down. He told the bartender to stop giving me drinks and to call me a cab. The bartender told him to fvck off and gave me another drink. Took a swig then tried to fight my future husband.
 
It's not a good story.
 
 
 
ETA: I started seeing him all the time after that, and each time he had some old man lecture for me.

He worked at an art gallery with my friend.  They needed help serving wine at an art opening and I was a broke grad student who figured I could get some free wine and crackers and cheese. He asked me out and I turned him down for about a year ( I wasn't trying to join team swirl), I agreed to one date and lo and behold....

i took one of my exes from under her boyfriend's nose

she was living with her bf and shared a flat with my best friend

their families knew each other,

first day i met her she walked into the kitchen and the prettiest face and most perfect lips with big eyes stared back at me, i thought damn she's cute

she couldnt cook for sh*t so i finished making her meal for her and it became her running joke. told her i wasnt going to ask for her number coz id be back to see her and the rest was history

her boyfriend never knew what hit him, by the time he figured it out it was too late.

i mean, me and my bestie were asses though jeez, one saturday i went to pick her up with my bestie and we left her bf in the flat punching walls,

i never gave not even half a , swooped that girl off her feet right in front of with a coke and a colgate smile.

he was an ass and i thought she could do better

she did

We are in the same class. He kept annoying me for a full semester until I said yes. j/k lol But we were always together and people kept referring to me as "so and so's" girlfriend before we started dating.

I seriously did not think we would date especially since another girl in our class liked him and I thought they were going to go out eventually. Needless to say that girl hates my ass even though I did nothing wrong since he pursued me but whatever.

It's not a good story.
 
 
 
ETA: I started seeing him all the time after that, and each time he had some old man lecture for me.

Kinda trifling, but oh well. ..

I was in a long distance relationship with another guy and we were having problems. I decided to go out with my girls to clear my mind and got wasted. I spotted my current boyfriend and even tho he wasn't my type, we kept eyeing each other all night.

He finally approached and asked for my number, and my drunk ass gave it to him. When he called the next day, I told him not to call anymore cuz I had a boyfriend. He did the whole "we can just be friends" thing. We talked a little but I felt guilty, so I ended the convo and called my then boyfriend.

We got into yet another argument, so outta anger I agreed to hang out with the club cutie. We met at the lake and had amazing chemistry and convo. I knew I liked him, but I was TRYING to be faithful for once in my life. For months, I still kept sneaking and hanging out with him tho. I would tell Mr. Long Distance I was with my girls, but really go chill with club cutie. We would literally just talk, watch movies, and vibe. No funny biz...

Then I slipped and we did sleep together. I felt guilty so I started avoiding him. I wouldn't answer his calls or textsand had my roommates tell him I was never home when he popped up. He finally ended up leaving me a voicemail saying he was sick of my games and back and forth, and to "go be with that ni g g a".

When me and Mr. Long Distance broke up a few weeks later, I reached out but he NEVER returned my calls or texts. I figured he got tired of my back and forth and moved on with his life.

Last March, I'm in that same club and I see him. I was scared to say something but he came over. Turns out he moved back to his home state and had literally just moved back where we live that day.

His first day back after 2 years of being gone, and we literally run into each other the same night. Neither of us even wanted to go out that might, but friends dragged us out.

We decided it had to be fate and have been attached at the hip ever since.

I'm breaking up with him this week tho .

During my clinical hours as a CNA, he was my preceptor for a day. I was having major problems with my my on/off boyfriend at the time. Anyway, he was really sweet and nice, but it was like we started off as friends. When my boyfriend and I broke it off again, I decided to go out with this guy to the movies and dinner and we just clicked. We would be on the phone for hours. Then, a week later, I went over to his house for basically a booty call ( I have never done that before Embarrassed. He didn't even want me to come, saying he was concerned about my car that was having problems) He swept me off my feet and we've been together for almost 3 years now, my longest and most stable relationship ever. 

They say the best way to get over someone is to get under someone else.

do you start counting your relationship from the day you met or when you made it official?

I never had BF **cough**  I could never get out of the flirtationship. Next time I will LOL

8th grade:  My guy friend saw me from afar and was like "DAMN! Who is that?"  His friend Tyrone was like "WTF, that's Jess"  My friend said "Damn, she's hot!"  I was wearing these tight shorts...they were long though, but since I'm tall I had extra leg showage.  He asked me out and called me.  He asked me how long would he have to wait to have sex.  I said over a year. The next day my friend called me and said he got a new gf.  I wasn't surprised or sad.

Sophomore year:  A new guy transferred to my school.  I didn't find him attractive initially.  Then I did...so I found him on MySpace and added him.  I gave him my AIM and we would talk like everyday for HOURS on AIM. SMDH.  This went on for 5 months.  I gave him a carnation on Valentine's Day. He brought this girl named Christine to the classroom the day before. He changed his relationship status to "In A Relationship".  I was thrown.  Now that I am older, I am not surprised.  I was his backup girl. LOL
He didn't get me a carnation and gave his carnation to Christine.  I was jilted. He wanted to stay friends, but I cut him off and burned the bridge.  He's not with Christine anymore.

Sophomore Year of College:
I liked a guy, but I was too forward.  He wasn't into me.  I was delusional and thought he was just shy.  He wasn't and he got with a girl he actually liked.

Junior Year of College:
This guy would talk to me all the time before class. I thought he was just being nice.  While the semester is winding up, he asks me to be a part of his study group.  Well the day comes and the study group is just us.  We talked, but there wasn't any chemistry.  He said we should hangout over the summer.  I texted him the day school ended and he responded late and didn't reply to my other text. I didn't hear from him in like 4 days.  So I texted him again -____-  and he asked me out the same day...but I just took out my weave so I said I couldn't. 

Didn't hear from him in a week (You would think that I would learn the signs)  I asked him how was he and he asked me out to the beach.  The day we were suppose to go to the beach, he said he got called into work and rescheduled for the weekend.  I asked him which day and he didn't respond.  

He texted me later in the week and asked me hows my summer going.  I told him if this beach thing doesn't happen, it's okay.  He gave a response that didn't make sense and he never set a date.  I never went to the beach and I stopped texting him.  I deleted his number.  >.<
Again I was the backup girl. This shyt is getting real old.

Senior Year:
To be continued...in September

I can't imagine the 12 y/os I know now having sex.  No ma'am. 
Still a virgin though.  I'm not waiting until marriage, but need to get out of these flirtationships and into a committed monogamous relationship.  The guys I've met so far in college either want dem draws or already in relationships spanning 2+ years.

I saw him on my block one day and I was like "LAWD he's fione" lol. But I figured he was married, I wasn't his type, he just got out of jail, and such...

Everytime I see him I would get super nervous and walk on the opposite of the streetStern Smile

I used to stare at him from outside my window and wonder why he was outside, sitting on the steps and ain't talking to nobody...

One day on my way to work I see him outside and I walk past and he finally spoke. But then I never saw him againDisapprove

4 months later, I was on my way to school and I saw him again and he said *coconut accent* "Woman where have you been hiding, I've been tinkin bout you for 4 months?
I used to wait outside by the steps for you, but you never came out. And then everytime I see you you would walk on the other side of the street"LOLDead

The following week we started riding the train together to go to work and we've been inseparable since...

 1st date/1st night spent together (they're the same). We actually celebrate that day in a bigger way than our wedding anniversary because to us that's the day our life together began.

We have a mutual friend that over my house because I just moved to the area. He handed me his phone to talk him while he used the bathroom. 

We've been long distance for while. 

He's moving here in 24 days to be with me. I get so emotional when I think about the fact he leaving behind his friends, family, his network..basically everything to give our relationship a real shot.

I was clerking for a judge, and he was in the court fighting a ticket. He said, "You don't look like someone on trial. Why are you here?" I rolled my eyes and said, "I work here." Then he said, "I'm sorry. I was just trying to make conversation." So we talked, and he asked me out. He took me to dinner that night, and we've been together ever since.
