    Paul and I are both in law enforcement - he is a police officer in MA and I am a prosecutor in CT. We met at a convention in Washington, DC. I was in line for the restroom at the Friday evening social function and he was coming out of the restroom. I had never seen this man in my life! He stopped, looked at me, smiled and said, "I'm going to marry you someday" AND THEN HE WALKED AWAY! Of course, I thought "a**hole!" We saw eachother later in the evening and asked him if he had ever had success with that corny line. He said that he never used it before.

    Fast forward two years later, his birthday. He arrives at my house in his dress uniform, my first time seeing it. He asked me..."what did you get me for my birthday?" Once again, I found myself thinking, "a**hole!" BUT then he dropped to one knee, pulled out a little box and said "Because I was hoping you'd give me a yes!" And of course, I did.

    To date, we maintain two homes in two states...on the north shore of Boston and in central CT, and given where we are in our careers we will likely continue to live apart during the week. But as you all know, when its right, its right! (It just took me a little longer than him to realize it!)

      That's a super cute story!! I'm a prosecutor too. I'll have to tell my single work friends to keep a better eye out at conventions!

        LALA - I'd never had much "luck" at those conventions until I met Paul. Usually, I don't go for the "cop" type. Paul was certainly an exception!!

          Haha, that's a cute story. My CT fiance thought I was a b*tch when he first met me.

                Thanks for the well wishes! To this day, Paul can't explain why he said what he said when we met. He says it just came out and he truly meant it.
