although i more or less seem to be one of those 'eternally single' people, i LOVE "How We Met" stories!

so here's a spot to tell yours:

for all of those hitched or dating or previously in love, how did you meet?

Actually, uh... livejournal. I was yelling at, or about, republicans. She asked me to marry her. I didn't. We flirted online, then met up, had indian food, and rolled down hills at night.

Hard to believe that that was almost an entire year ago.

and then it ended.

the end.

i think that's yet another reason why i don't mind being single AT ALL: so much less drama in my life.

woke up one morning and realized that I was hanging out with the wrong people in my life. I left the house I was crashing at and sat out on the curb and said "Today, I will meet new people."

that night (Downtown Saturday Night in Tucson), I ran into two people that I don't normally hang out with. They both seemed overly anxious to hang out with me, and both urged me to go to this concert that night (at seperate times). I wasn't going to go, because it was $10 and I didn't have it, and it was for a band I really didn't like. However, in a bizarre move, one guy offered to pay for me to go.

I thought for sure that since he was paying that I would be obligated to hang out with him, but he disappeared shortly after going in. So did the other friend that wanted me to go. So I was sitting by myself. Then this girl comes up to me randomly and starts talking to me.

I couldn't believe the lines she was using.
"I've seen you around. You come here often?"
"the finline?"
"definitely no."
"how about downtown saturday night?"
"oh yeah, I go there often."

I wouldn't have kept talking to her after a line like that (which she will always claim wasn't a line), but she looked like a girl I knew, and I wasn't sure it wasn't her. Anyway, we hit it off, and at the end of the night when she had to leave, I was giving her my phone number, but she had nothing to write it on. So she had to commit it to memory long enough to get the ride home and write it down.

Had she forgotten my number, or got it wrong, its quite possible that we would not be married today. My lesson is that sometimes when you break the mold and do things you don't particularly want to, or would normally do, great things can happen.

hooray! i love that story :) i always felt that things happen for a reason and within its own time. your story totally shows that :)

there's been other circumstances, too, where i totally haven't felt like doing something, and then something very interesting occured.

We met (right when my ex-wife was moving out) because my drummer's girlfriend and she have been best friends since elementary school. Thanks to this connection, Heather was given (unbeknownst to me) a WAY WAY advance copy of my 1st album. Heather not only liked it, she would listen to "Tuesday Street" and pretend that someone would sing those lyrics to her. She'd listen to it to cheer herself up. The friend started bringing her to shows, where every time we were introduced, I'd think she was even cooler than she was before. Obviously she was mega cute - I'd taken a photo of her the first time we met. And a tight body... mmm...
But she was introduced to me as a big fan of Evil Dead. I immediately shouted "THIS IS MY BOOM STICK!" to the dismay of the crowd around us. How NOT to seem cool - I didn't care though. When she signed my mailing list that night, I noticed that her email address had to do with Invader Zim.
Weeks later, the "you have been added as a buddy" notice came up from her and we chatted that night for 7 hours. The next night we talked on the phone for 7 hours.
And the night after that we shagged for 7 hours. It was really romantic, really exciting, really hot. We've been living together ever since. Got married 12 months later, had Paul a month ago. It's been awesome. Here we are - she's mucho pregnant and I'm mucho drunk.

i think your story of all stories i find the most fascinating - i saw you go from sick and depressed to a family man much in love with an excellent future ahead of him in music :)

It was my first day at a new school, fourth grade, I believe I transfered in a week late so things had already settled a bit. To simplify life, the teacher had put everyone in alphabetical order, so I ended up behind someone with an S name and in front of this chubby curly-haired kid with a V name. He wasn't in the gifted class I had to attend every Tues/Thurs because he went to a different school for the same thing, but he was usually in the after school daycare-type program with me, and we were both in the advanced reading group. We were pretty evenly matched, and I wasn't used to that (he later confessed that he wasn't either, that he was really bitter and jealous when I showed up). We'd pretend to be X-Men and Ninja Turtles and whatever other crap we felt like at the time. It was way fun, I have good memories of elementary school.

Anyhow, growing up, still went to school together but saw less of each other due to the change in schedules (middle school had hour-long class periods where you moved from class to class instead of staying in one place, typical I assume). High school was more of the same, but we used to hang out at lunch and after school to play Magic or D&D with other nerdy kids. I had a boyfriend for a while, but that didn't pan out, and one day he finally got the guts to ask me out. The rest, as they say, is history.

Twue love!
I actually became acquainted with The Boy when I was still married to The Ass. I was playing Pyramids on Yahoo! games, and we started mocking the same idiotic person.

After awhile, one of these girls went off on how she was a nudie model and porn star, and offering to show pics from "Vixen," a men's magazine. (We think she was making it up to this day. She didn't have any candid pics of herself, just pictures from magazines.)

I was being pissy and was like, "Well, if anyone wants to see a real, live woman's pic, here's mine." He went and looked and was impressed, or so he claims. We started chatting and became IM friends.

We sort of quit talking for a little while, but on 9/11, struck it up again, because I was worried about him. Shortly after, I was seperated, and then divorced. We had started talking more and more, and realized there was some mutual attraction there. In December, I went up to check out a grad school, but in reality, to meet him.

We met at LGA, by 10 or 15 minutes later, on the bus/train, we were smooching and cuddling. We only seperated long enough to get to his apartment, where we commenced to "do it" for several hours. We slept, fucked some more, slept, and eventually got out of the apartment to see a show, have some food, etc. But mostly, for the entire 4 days, we just fucked, lol.

He came down in Feb, I went up in April, and then moved up permanantly in May, as soon as I finished finals. I didn't even stay for graduation.

We've known each other for 3.2 years now, been together for 2.7 and have been living together for 2.2 years. ;)

Re: Twue love!
such a wonderful story, thank you! meeting over the internet has always scared the bejeebers out of me, but i keep seeing more and more instances where they make it work!

thank you for sharing!

Re: Twue love!
I don't think the internet is any more "dangerous" than any other way of hooking up. You just gotta be thoughtful and careful, no matter how you do it. Don't like most serial killers go to church and all anyway? So there goes finding a prospective husband at church! :D

Glad you liked it, though. The Boy is a darling.

Re: Twue love!
it's so true, everything is so freaking scary nowadays.

at least, with meeting people online, you might get a one way ticket to somewhere fascinating! like.... wyoming!
