It was a week after we we met on Saturday and we were both in the gym. We were planning to go out on Monday. Joseph thought it was me but he did not speak. I knew it was him but pretended I didn't notice him. As soon as Joseph got home he called me and we met for breakfast at Cracker Barrel (Joseph's favorite restaurant after O'Charley's). My first thought was..."he is shorter than I remember." But we went on our second date, bowling that night. (He was beat bad). We even have pictures to prove it.

We went to school together since 4th grade, but at a baseball game our sophomore year (we were both 16, yikes) he asked me out.

 

I had a car and license, he did not yet. I picked him up a Friday night after school and we went to eat at a really popular "Mexican" restaurant in town. Then we went to the mall to walk around and my cousin was there. We were hanging out in the food court when this guy Nick walked up. My cousin had beef with him and punched him in the face, knocking him down into a table and chairs, then he ran off. It was memorable, to say the least. :o)

Okay, so don't laugh.. but, FI and I met off of Craigs List. (I know, a bit creepy right?) FI had posted saying that he was going to a jazz bar with a group to celebrate a friends birthday and was looking for a lady friend to meet. (I'm almost embarassed to admit the CL thing) So, needless to say, I responded to the ad.. I had nothing else going on at the time and said that I would meet him for a drink. So, when I arrived to the jazz bar, I was greeted by a group of his friends and I said that I was meeting Shawn. His friend Sean, quickly stood up and said, "I'm Sean!" (Not the Shawn I was looking for, he was about 5' 4" and asian-it was really cute and funny) And I said, "um, yeah, I don't think you are who I am looking for!" He told me Shawn was over by the bar so I walked over and introduced myself and the rest is history! The entire evening we talked and it was almost as if nobody else was around us! We were so fixated on one another. It was an amazing connection right away. And a great and memorable first date!! So, my first date was the first night we met! And the wonderful thing is, Shawns Grandparents had their first date on August 21st, the same as FI and I!

 

We have been inseparable ever since and this was almost three years ago! It's amazing how we meet our mates isn't it!

"Okay, so don't laugh.. but, FI and I met off of Craigs List. (I know, a bit creepy right?)"

 

Not laughing...I met my FI on CraigsList as well :) I had posted an ad saying that men responding did not need to be over 6 feet tall to talk to me. FI responded saying he appreciated that I did not have a height requirement. We chatted for a few days online and then decided to meet up to go mini-golfing and to get ice cream. At the time I had a broken foot and had just gotten off crutches - just using the air cast. We had a great time mini-golfing and he was quite the gentleman...he held my pocketbook each time it was my turn to putt. We finished our round of golf, had ice cream, and chatted. While we were sitting at the picnic table some skunks appeared...when they got about 15 feet away I jumped up saying "Okay, this isn't fun anymore!" so we continuted chatting in his car. We stayed there until 1am! It was the perfect first date :) We still joke about the skunks and have exchanged more than once gift that involved a skunk.

My fiance and I met on plentyoffish.com my friend who had met her bf at the time put me on there, i had given up on men, did not want to put myself online..but she said just try it...5min. later Jason(my fiance :) wrote to me and .... we met a week later, after talking on the phone and connecting so easily....we decided to meet, he showed up at my door.....my dog, greeting him and he bent down to say hi to her, which i thought was the cutest thing, i NEEDED an animal lover......we chatted on the couch for a little bit and went for coffee and we have been inseperable ever since...

 

I think a lot of people meet off the net these days..almost every friend I have has done so.... I did not want to meet someone who was the party kind....through friends....no one really knew anyone...at school i was in the arts.....no need to say more there and I work with the elderly which once again if filled with women...so..... online was the best option afterall :)

FI & I went to high school together, but he found me 20 years later on classmates.com. he sent me a note saying he was happy to see I was still so pretty and he'd love to hear from me.

I didn't remember him from his picture, but when we talked, we knew all the same people.

 

We talked on the phone for a few hours andour first date he took me out on his motorcycle. When he came to pick me up, I recognized and remembered him right away and gave him a big hug - he says now that when I hugged him, he knew he was in trouble!

 

We went to the beach and walked and talked, looked at the NYC skyline, watched the sunset and talked....I didn't even really know it was a date....I thought it was just two high school friends getting together and reminiscing....then we went to dinner, and kept talking...we had a lot in common...live music, traveling...not wanting kids, dating a lot of different people and not meeting the right one...then I was telling him about Rennaissance Faires and that I was supposed to go to one that weekend with some guy i'd been seeing and he said, "You should go with me instead". And immediately I thought....he's right, I should. The guy I'd been seeing had 3 kids, no job, living with his brother, while FI had a house, cars, job, motorcycles....no brainer right?

 

so then FI rides me (motorcycle, remember?) home...and when he dropped me off, he kissed me....and that kiss went through me like no other...from my head to my toes I felt it....

 

I went inside, called the other guy and told him i was sorry, but it wasn't going to work between us.

 

FI called me the next day and asked me out for Friday night as well as Saturday to go to the Rennaisance Faire, and that Saturday night we went to a Halloween Party too.

That Monday night he showed up at my house with Roses, and we've been together ever since.

We met through mutual friends on the night of my bday at a bar. We didn't really talk that night though, I was talking mainly to his friend. The following week we were at the Virgin Music Festival at Centre Island (in Toronto), I was sitting at a picnic table with a friend having a beer when I saw the 2 of them walking across the lawn. I ran over to them and started chatting (I'm fairly outgoing) and the 4 of us spent the day together. By the end of the day, we had definitely made a connection and exchanged numbers.

 

Our first date, we just went out for dinner and drinks. What was so special about it, was how long we talked for! Knowing now that my FI takes a while to come out of his shell with new people, he opened up to me immediately. When dinner was over, neither of us wanted the date to end, so we walked along the street till we found a pub and went in there till it closed. Still remember what we both ate that night :)

met my man at a disco, he was the dj and asked for my telephone number. He phoned the next day and invited me to his 41st Birthday party the following week. We talked every day on the phone leading up to his birthday party and then he dropped the bomb shell that his ex wife would be there, so was in two minds about going, but went anyway and ended up meeting all his friends and family as well as the ex wife but had a brill night and the rest is history.

we work together (he is my manager lol) and on our first date we decided to go to a restaurant that was a bit out of the way just in case anyone saw us. he got up to use the restroom and when he got back, he said "you won't believe this but I just ran into so and so". one of the cooks at the restaurant we went to was also a linecook at the restaurant we work at! oops wink.gif three years later and we're planning a wedding smile159.gif

    • The two people who matters the most in this situation? You and your partner. It is nice to get an outside opinion but if you have too much of it? It will get messy! I am replying you my response after that has happened to me with my wedding. Although it is quite hard, do not think of the negative opinions. The people who will turn up to your wedding? You will always cherish them even more! That is what has happened with me because my friendship with the people who attended my wedding has improved so much more that I know I can rely on them and they can rely on me. It is disappointing that people will not attend your wedding but it is their loss, not yours. At the end of the day, when they see pictures and videos of your big day they will definitely regret missing out on such event. I am waiting to deal with the aftermath of my wedding from my so called friends, if they say anything they will get an earful! Happy planning, your big day will be worth it! Keep us up to date!
    • Wow, I cannot believe it's been over a year since I last posted! Better keep everyone up to date as everything ended up positive in the end! So, let's start with the situation with W. From my previous post, I have serious consideration removing him from the groomsmen because of the hurtful things he has said to me. Not too after my second post, I asked him once again whether he wants to be part of the groomsmen. The response was around the lines of "I need more solid information". This was before the restriction were lifted. Then he said it was down to finances yet again, even though he said he could have made it but because of what A said, W didn't commit no more. As W was being difficult, I decided to drop him as a groomsmen altogether and replaced him with someone else. Plan B was already in motion and tbh, I wish I did this first to avoid any hassle. Everyone who got invited in plan B all committed themselves to the wedding!  The situation with A is this. I was feeling sad that I was losing this friendship and that spark with him was gone. By the time it was gone, A was "ready" to meet up with me to discuss life and the wedding. When I said I lost spark with him, I really did. I knew that he was ready to meet up with me because it was convenient for him. For example, he wanted to meet up with me because he was driving past my house or was in the area visiting his relative. If he was not doing those things he would not want to meet up with me. Needless to say, every time he kept asking, I just said I was busy. I think deep down something was not right between me and A but he does not want to acknowledge it. I know that W had FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out) because that's what he is like. Around the end of last year, rather than messaging me about the DW he went behind my back and asked my SO. He was scared of asking me because he knows if he asked me, I would literally get angry at him. He's nosey and was happy enough to be part of the groomsmen but he listened to A. W didn't asked once but twice to mg SO. My SO just said that she was busy and should ask me about the wedding, not her. W did messagee but not about the wedding plans. I felt this was a sly move by his part. If anything not having A and W there was a blessing in disguise. I met up with the other 4 groomsmen over one weekend and it turns out it was the most fun we all have had for a while. It was as if we continued from the previous conversations in the past as if nothing has changed. I am so glad and proud of this group of groomsmen and glad the other 2 dropped out. The suit fitting went really well and we hung out again to see whether the suits altered fitted or not.  Unfortunately my SO UK group, 5 out of 6 declined the invite. Only 1 accepted it. The other 5 had reasons ranging from good ones to poorer ones 😅 As long one of them turned up then it was good enough for us. My SO's bridesmaids also were amazing. No problems caused whatsoever and they were really excited that our wedding was abroad too! To make things work out before our DW, myself and SO planned out 2 weekends for both groomsmen and bridesmaids to hang out before the DW. We did this so we would not encounter any awkwardness for the first time in DW. Lo and behold, everyone got to know each other and we really are happy that the wedding party weekend went smoothly. I will keep this ambiguous because I do not want A and his group finding out. I got married to my SO this year. What time and month? I will leave this intentionally blank. The wedding itself was everything we have expected. The wedding planner was amazing. The photographer was also amazing too, so glad we went for him. The sneak peak photos are absolutely great, couldn't imagine that the photos turned out like that. The good itself was okay could be better but could be worse. The first dance went relatively well although my SO managed to cock up s move which only I know hahahaha. The wedding ceremony itself went really quickly. I was a bag of nerves to which one of the groomsmen bought the groomsmen a shot each to calm everyone down. It did calm me down for a little bit but the nerves started again with the speeches. I got emotional throughout the speeches. I was not expecting the tear up with the best man speech at all. My speech was meant for my SO but for some reason everyone in the room also cried as well 😂 The all night dancing and fun was the best bit. When every serious part was done, I was able to stop being nervous! The fun went through the whole night and I can see everyone really enjoyed themselves. It was as if myself and SO correctly guess that lockdown restrictions would end. Everyone was thankful that they managed to take part in the DW because they all have been stranded in the country for 3 years! Do I regret having a DW? Hell no! Although it was a smaller party everything was all under control. Everyone had a great time!  More information about my UK group. Some of them congratulated us which was nice to hear. Those congratulated us, I can keep contact. They knew it was difficult coming to DW. At least they are mature enough to say something about it and they did not get the invite. On the other hand, A and W kept constantly monitoring my account for updates along with my SO. It got to the point that W really FOMO that he I followed our stories/posts. A on the other hand is completely out of order. He was invited to DW but made it really uncomfortable to me that he was not happy with DW. During that week, he went on holiday to Spain. I get that Spain is much more cheaper than my DW but it still is annoying. A also said before that he has a few weddings to attend during our DW month. He has not attended any weddings which makes me think that he has lied to me. A and W has lied to me saying it was costly for them to come to my DW. They have both bought PlayStation 5 and went to many designer outlets. If they are so stumped on money why go and buy things? It just shows that they are not good friends at all. Overall good DW. I do not regret it one bit because I know if I did it in the UK, the experience will be a lot different. The UK definitely not as scenic as my DW! 🤣
