My boyfriend and I were at a party and we didn't know each other at the time. I was with a bunch of family and friends. One of my friends, Alex (who is a lot older than me) knew my boyfriend, Aaron. I thought he was kind of cute at the time and I thought he was nice. I don't know how Alex found out that I thought he was cute, but he did, and I was sitting by Alex. Well, Alex starts to talk to Aaron, and out of the midst of the air, he said, "hey, do you think she's cute?" Then, we talked a lttle bit after that and our friends hooked us up, because we are both kind of shy and didn't know what the other one would say, so we didn't. Our friends did it instead. We talked and we've been together ever since.
We met in a tech ed class with a smile and we knew it was love.
My soul and I met in the most unusual way. Friends of mine decided it was time for me to come out of hibernation and once again enjoy life. So, we all dressed to kill, and headed off to the Nightclub. Low and behold, it was karaoke night, and I was the flavor of the night.
Shortly after us girls got there, this knight in black strides through the door, and right into my heart. We exchanged words for a while, until it was my turn to sing. After my song was over, I went back to the man who had stolen my heart. It was a very magical night of romance and love making that followed.
However, the next day we were ripped apart by an outside influence, only to come together once again the following night.
It was a beautiful, quiet, night, full of stars in the sky and stars in my eyes. We have been together ever since. That was three months ago.
I met my guy in the 6th grade. At first we didnt really like each other at all. Eventually in the 7th grade i started hanging out with a new group of friends, him being included. We were always together. We had secret crushes on each other, kind of like a love/hate thing. He started going out with a girl who i thought was my best friend. She knew how much we liked each other, but kept us apart by telling him i hated him and other lies. Eventually by the end of 8th grade he had gotten another g/f and i was doing my own thing. We moved on to different high schools, but in the beginning of sophmore year my school had a "welcome back to school dance". He went because his friend at the time went to my school and was my ex boyfriend. When i walked into the dance, i saw him and thought he looked really cute, but he was being a total jerk, and i was a ya know...Later on that night we started talking and flirting and spent the entire night together, kind of like old times. I didn't talk to him after that for about 2 weeks, then me and my friend J pranked called him and he found out it was me. He gave me his number and we talked all night till 3 in the morning. We decided to meet again at a football game at my school, and of course we spent the entire time together. And that night he asked me out and we have been together for almost 8 months. 'Im so glad i met up with him again, because now we're completely in love and i truly believe he is my soulmate and we'll spend our lives happily ever after!
Colin and I met like few future mates do -- on the floor of a three-year-old Sunday School classroom over a pile of blocks that he was hopelessly trying to stack into a tower. I didn't make friends easily, and most of the guys my age growing up were enemies -- but never Colin. he was always there for me through everything. We started dating the middle of my tenth grade year and didn't date anybody else before we got engaged when I was a sophmore in college. It was one of the craziest relationships I have ever heard of and I wouldn't have it any other way.
We had both been dating people off and on since our long term relationships
had both ended terribly. We were both in a chatroom on the computer when all
of a sudden he sent me an instant message telling me he liked my screen
name. I said thanks and we began to chat. I was talking to a lot of other
guys at the time so I really didn't talk to him much, whenever he'd instant
message me, so he thought I was stuck up and he blocked me from talking to
him anymore. It just so happened he had gotten on his other screen name one
day while I was on and he hadn't blocked me from this one. So I saw he was
on and I decided to see what he had been up too. We started talking again
and I found out he had lost his job and was really down, so I suggested we
get together and hang out. I was doing this because I felt like he could use
someone to talk too, you know a good friend. We went out the next weekend
and we really hit it off. We ended up driving an hour and a half out of town
on our first date to go hiking and he took me out to eat at Olive Garden. We
ended the date with a game of bowling, which I beat him by 4 points.
Needless to say we had a blast and we still can't get enough of each other.
What was supposed to be a one time friendship/comfort thing turned out to be
true love. We have been together for almost a year now and will be getting
married in 6 months.
My friends were always begging me to go out with them to parties and to clubs but i never wanted to. One night they finally convinced me to go to a party in my town at some guys house that just moved in. So i figured since it was close i would go. When i got there it seemed really boring and i didnt want to be there anymore as i was about to leave i saw one of my friends so i decided to stay. That night i met the most goodlooking and sweetest man. I didnt talk to him at all cause i was really nervous. My friend decided to stay the night there cause she liked his roomate and i went home. The next day she called me and told me to come over. Right as soon as i got there me and him started talking and we totally clicked, we talked for about 5 hours and i totally feel for him. Now we have the best relationship. I love him so much and were planning on moving in together and spending our lives together.
I met my now fiance, Dan in highschool. It was the summer before 10th grade, I was at bandcamp and I noticed this really cute drummer. While talking with some of my friends I learned he was a senior who had quit the band the year before (my freshman year) but had decided to come back. A mutual friend said he'd introduce us. Dan's smooth opening line was "I will be Dan." and me in response to that replied "I will be Brooke". He called me later that (monday) night, on wednesday we offically became a couple, and on Friday we had our first date. And the rest is history. Now six years later we're getting married!!
This might not sound too special but it's really sweet...we didnt meet right away after knowing each other straight away..he was my sister's collegue from college, she always told me bout him and how sweet he is, i never met him in person until the day of my birthday i was surpirized by an e-mail from that sweet stranger who ended up being the love of my life! He just wished me a happy birthday and we met as a group two days later in pizza hut.We've been inseparatable ever since!
I went to my friends house for a party one night and my friend was standing
outside talking to someone on the phone. I was over hearing her
conversation and she had mentioned that one of her guy friends were inside
and she wanted to hook those two up. After she got off the phone, I had
asked about him before we went inside and she said that he was going to be
taken by the end of the night if her friend and this guy hook up, so I
decided to keep my hands off. Well, that was until I walked inside and saw
this tall, dark, and handsome man. I got this sick feeling in my stomach the
moment he smiled at me and introduced himself. That night we stayed up
talking until the sun came up, and now we are engaged to be married next
Our town has a very strong local music scene, and last year, I attended shows frequently, but lost steam in going in the summer and beginning of the new school year.
Then, one of my friends was raving about the biggest ska show of the year, at a venue really close to my house. I told her I would attend, even though I hadn't been to a show in over eight months.
When we got to the show, I was into the music, when Ashley pulled me to the back of the room, and there stood an adorable kid, slightly taller than me. Ashley introduced us, and we spent the whole night joking, laughing, and having an all around great time together.
We started noticing that we ran into each other around school more often than not. He was soon walking me to my classes, and talking about problems, as well as things that were making us happy. I didn't realize that I was falling for him by the second, until I hung out with him one day after school, and on an impulse, I leaned over and gave him his first ever kiss. We have been together ever since.
Me and my Ex-boyfriend had just broken up at the time. It was really hard for me to move on and forget about him. I was always out with my friends, partying and trying to get him off my mind. One night we decided to call up some friends and they knew of this big party that was going on. So we decided to go check it out. When we got there, there were so many people there and this one guy in particular caught my eye. When i would be mingling around I would always see him and we would make eye contact and then look away. I was talking to one of my guy friends and it happened to be one of his friends too. We were talking and all of a sudden he walked up and started talking to both of us. After that he looked at me and said "By the way my name is Joe" I introduced myself and for the rest of night we talked and he had just gotten out of a relationship too and was very sad... So then after that we always saw each other on the weekends or at parties. When I saw him my heart always melted and he always had a big smile on his face when he saw me. One night he gave me his number and soon after that we hooked up and we are still together to this day. We've been together for 1 yr and a half and he's the best thing that's happened in my life. I think fate brought us together and I do believe everyone gets it someway or another.
On December 9th, of 2002, I was up at a college, chatting online with different people. I became VERY interested in one guy, and even quit talking to the others. He seemed to be "perfect", he was very attractive in his profile picture, and so he gave me his number, and I called from the phone. There's a time limit, so I couldn't talk long, but he had the SEXIEST voice I had ever heard! It was SO hard to get off the phone. I really wanted to meet him, but thought it would be better to talk by phone at first, so he wouldn't be disappointed with the way I look. After getting off the phone, I decided to head home, but the buses weren't running anymore, so I would have to walk about 8 miles in the light rain, and cold. I walked across the street, to the gas station, and called him, to tell him I'd call him when I got home. He insisted to pick me up, and bring me home! I was SO nervous. He finally arrived, and was obviously as nervous as I was. When we arrived at my apartment, I really didn't want to go, so he invited me to sit in the parking lot, and talk. He was a complete gentleman the whole time, and all we did was talk, and get to know each other. He finally made a move to kiss me, and it was the BEST kiss, gentle, soft, passionate, and so much more. I felt he was special from when we first started talking, but wasn't sure HOW special. I could barely get to sleep that night, I was so excited, and awed by him. The next morning, he was supposed to call me, but I called him first, I couldn't wait to talk to him. Since then, we've seen each other EVERY day, engaged, and have a child on the way! He truly was my prince charming!
Well i had been single for a while and as they say it happens i wasnt looking for anyone. Then i got a call from a distant friend that i forgot i had given my phone number to. She said i know someone who would be perfect for you. At first i wasn't going to meet him cause i was still a little cautious of men. Then she told me his name and i actually knew he was one of my ex-friend's brothers. So i finally decided to meet. i remember when i was a girl i thought my prince charming would come riding up on a white horse. well there was no horse -- he drove a white mustang and that's even better. At first i was really nervous and didn't know what to say. My heart was pounding and i was sweating then i looked in his eyes...after that everything was oblivious and then we kissed and you know when they say you feel something like you have never felt before it's true ever since then we've been together and now i do believe in fate.
Me and my boyfriend met on August, 26, 2002. The way we met is really weird. He just came up to me in school one day and asked for my name (I knew who he was but I didn't tell him b/c my ex-best friend dated him). That whole week he walked me to my last class. Then he asked for my phone number and we got to know each other. After we have known each other for about week he asked me out. The only reason I went out with him is to get back at my ex-best friend and I thought that our relationship wasn't going to last more than a week. During the first few weeks I began to have all these weird feelings and was confused about what they were, b/c I have never felt that way about any guy. Soon I realized that I was falling in love with him, but I was afraid to fall in love with him b/c he treated my ex-best friend really bad. He never called her or anything, and they were never together. I don't think that he even cared for her, so I didn't want to be treated that way too. I have been with Mirza for seven months now (April, 6, 2003), and he treats me like a princess and really cares for me, and calls me all the time (which is amazing, but it must be b/c he loves me). I have wanted to have a boyfriend like him for a long time and I used to pray to God to give me a guy like him. Mirza is my angel and an answer to my prayers. I hope that our love lasts for a long time b/c I don't want to lose him, he means so much to me!!! Plus, I love him to death !!!!!!!! --
I was out with my friend and she had met this guy who went to our rival school... so we were hanging out with him and his friend, and me and his friend hit it off and he and my friend did. I dated the guy for a little bit then I kinda lost interest. So me and the other guy (the one who like my friend) well we started talking and became pretty alright friends. Then we were all at a parade and me and him walked off talking and spent the whole day together. I secretly started getting feelings for him even though i knew him and my friend liked each other. But then the next day my friend told me that he had told him that he started getting feelings for me. From then on we spent all our time togeher all through the summer. Then we went off to school and i really missed him. so we decided to date. that didnt work to well cuz we never saw each other. but now we see each other and everyone says we are going to get married. He is the love of my life. we are seriously a perfect couple. he calls me all the time. he kisses me all the time when we are together and everyone is jealous of how close we are. its so amazing i could meet this person at this age.
i went to the bar one night with my friend. this one guy was hitting on me and i wanted to get away from him, so i went up to this friendly looking guy (erik) and started to talk to him. we hit it off. at the end of the night, we kissed and planned to meet back there the following weekend.
the weekend came and erik brought his friend jimmy that was there the last time. we chit chatted a little bit. erik ended up leaving with a couple of his friends from work to go to another bar. jimmy and i started to talk even before erik left with his friends.
at the end of the night, i had to leave with the people i came with, so i gave him my number. he called me at 3 am at my request. we went to get a bite to eat.
the next day, he called me, but i didn't talk to him. i was sorta interested in someone else, but that never worked out.
new years comes around 2 weeks later and he gives me a call. he asked me what i was doing and invited me up to the bar with him and erik. i went and had a great time. we kissed when the ball dropped and i was hooked on him.
we hung out for about 3 weeks after that before we actually were labled girlfriend/boyfriend.
ever since then, we've been happily fighting everyday. :)
