Rae's lil story (which is so cute!) got me to thinkin.......

we would always go with a big group of friends to the park to play football and frisbee (all my friends were guys) and one day everyone else had to work and we were off so we met up, had a picnic and just hung out till the girl he was dating got there ( i was a serial dater back then)...he called me that night and we started seeing each other informally...this was all a week before we graduated high school (i got out early...but went to the ceremony)...he was already signed up to go to AF that fall but they called and wanted him early...so he left right after graduation...i visited him in texas when he got out of basic and while in tech school...he came back for a week that november, we got married and moved down to Florida!!! We even had a semi large wedding!! Nobody thought we would get married cuz I am not really the domestic kind...we are polar opposites in pretty much every way...but like nee said, when ya know, ya know!!!
So how did you meet your S.O.? C'mon, tell us the whole sappy story....

A friend of mine introduced us. We had the same last name, so my buddy thought we might be related. (Obviously we were'nt) He took me over to her apartment. She let us in, and I spent the evening helping her with her Calculus homework. It just took off from there. Not sappy but thats how it happened.

We were doing Honor guard together on base. I had a house party one night and she came over. We clicked a little bit, but the first kiss didn't come until a couple weeks later. It just so happened it was on my B-Day. She slept over my house for three weeks straight starting a week after the first kiss. We didn't smash out unitl the middle of the two weeks though. but i didn't mind for some reason. It wasn't the only thing on my mind. I wanted to show her some respect.

We met on a sportbike forum, actually (sportbikes.ws). He PM'd me about a bike I had posted up for sale for a friend (neither of us had bikes at the time). We just got to be friends via PM and email (I had a boyfriend at the time... the cheating one mentioned in the other thread), and realized we lived like 4 miles apart, and knew a bunch of people in common.

Fast forward a few months, and the boyfriend and I broke up (thank GOD!), and Chris was my shoulder to cry on, my confidant, etc... we got to be good friends, I'd go to his softball games, etc.. and I was ALWAYS trying to set him up with single friends of mine (and he'd always turn the offers down).

So a couple more months go by, I hadn't seen him in a while (but we emailed daily), and I asked him to come meet me for a beer and some pool at a local pub. I didn't even have romantic feelings for him at the time, just thought he was a super nice guy, really cute, a lot of fun....

So I'm sitting there in the pub, sipping on a Bass, and he walks in, and it was like all of the sudden I realized, "WHOAH! He's hot!" (I later learned the reason he wouldn't let me set him up with any of my friends was cus he thought I was hot as well ).... and the rest is history!

If by "smash out" you mean consummated the relationship, yeah, we didn't for about 2 months actually. Saw each other ALL the time, spent the night at each other's houses all the time, etc... but just took our time in that regard. And obviously, it worked out for the best!

here it goes (sorry for the legth)
I saw her at a party in college but could not get the nerve to talk to her. I literally stared at her for almost a year. Her and her friends referred to me as "the scary bald guy" . The next semester one of her friends who was dating a buddy of mine told me that she wanted me to talk to her, but the only way should would is if I told her, "Hey groovy chick, you're really happening in a far out way." Apparently they watched Brady Bunch that day and she made some comment about how she would swoon for any guy that told her that Well that night at another party all these guys that knew her were going up to her and telling her, I didn't know this. Anyway she finally just walked up and stood next to me....you guessed it, I didn't say a damn thing just stood there looking at my drink. She turns to me and says, "So are you ever going to talk to me?" and yep, you know what I said then, "Hey groovy chick, you're really happening in a far out way"...I'm such a tool. so we talk for a minute and says she wants to get together somtime.

Next night we are having a bbq at our house and I'm sitting in by one of the 3 phones in this huge 75man house for 30 min trying to get the nerve to call her (ya, you figured out I'm not good with the ladies). I pick up the phone and start dialing when a buddy walks by and says, "you know she is going to say 'no' right?" I slam down the phone. Another 30min go by and I finally call her, she agrees to come over but only if she can bring a friend(not what you're thinking here) cause she doesn't know anyone from my house. She comes over and we spend the next 12hours talking on the couch...ype, all night. She goes home for some stuff and I go to Baseball practice...she comes back and we stay up another night talking...she leaves and we both finally catch a nap. that was 10 years ago, been married for 6 and half of them.

Actually, he remembers most of the details as well.... Such as the fact that it was "my" pub we went to, and yet he and the bartenders were ganging up on me, picking on me, etc... all night.

And we had like a Metallica-fest that night, selecting every Metallica tune from the jukebox... until he chose "I love this bar" by Toby Keith... I tried to wrestle him away from the jukebox to prevent him from playing it, but he won, and that became "our" song... We joke that we'll play it at our wedding (and sadly, we probably will)

I was messed up during my college days. My buddies and I were not gentlemen. We often gang banged during the week ends. There was a group of high school chicks that were easy. After being passed around, I decided to ask one of the sluts to marry me.

It was a shaky marriage. But 15 years and 4 kids later, we're still going strong.

-a|ex

okay, more detail:
I joined up with my buddies at a rocky horror picture showing. The usual group of friends and sluts were there. This was in the winter in Ohio and after the show, I was doing reverse donuts in the parking lot on my Honda CRXsi.
We all met up at a friends bachelor pad and a party started. Eventually, clothes started falling off and an orgy persued.
My only concern was how long can I last. After shooting my load on the 3rd slut, I asked her if she wanted to get married. She said OK.
The following day, I asked her to dinner at Red Lobster. Then I proposed again. She said yes, again. We set the date a few months after her High School graduation. The parents weren't too happy but it was a helluva party at the reception. 30 bikers and many of them had stripper girlfriends that came.

Reverse a few weeks ago. After another party/orgy, I took her home and I told her I loved her. She kinda freaked and walked away. I wasn't serious. I told every girl I've shacked up with that I loved her. But I really did mean it. I love alota girls. I've only known her for about a month.

Ok more details then:

We didnt date right away. We were just friends at first. I didnt have the nerve to ask her out. Then she threw a Christams party at her apartment. I caught her under the missletoe(sp?) and planted a huge kiss on her. Later that night sha asked me out on a date. Our first date was Christmas dinner at her parents house. Talk about being nervous. We went back te her aparment after dinner and consumated the relationship all night long. Almost 2 years later we were married.
