i didn't know he was THE ONE on our first date but i do remember thinking that we were really good together and something really great was starting. I remember when I realized that I was in love with him...he got me a movie that I couldn't find anywhere and I had told him about it a few weeks before (but just casually in passing). I was leaving his house and I had his coat on. he asked for it back, I said no and he said "I'll trade you my coat for this" and pulled out the movie. I was in shock b/c we had only talked about it for a couple of mins. I got in my car and called my mom at like 2:30 in the morning freaking out b/c I knew he had me! :)

DH crashed my company's Xmas party. He had seen me around the building and had asked a mutual friend to introduce us but I had just ended a crappy relationship so I was hesitant. He knew when and where the party was going to be so he just showed up. We talked and then went to a very townie bar for dancing. It was going so well we didn't want the the night to end so we went to another friend's house to watch some lame movie ( I only saw the opening credits wink.gif)That very late night resulted in four years of dating and then obviously, marriage. I didn't know he was the "one" then. All I knew was my mouth hurt from all the smooching! Not horribly romantic but it was ballsy of him.

My FI and I met through Lavalife. We chatted and talked on the phone a few times, then met about a week after our first chat. We met up at this lounge/club (we both drove there separately), took a few drinks and talked all night over the music, both inside and on the terrace. The conversation was flowing so well, I remember telling him some pretty intimate stuff, as if I had known him a long time.

 

We danced a little, and though I thought he danced very well, I was a bit disappointed that he kept looking at the floor the whole time. I learned later that it's because he had been dancing alone for so long, he wasn't used to dancing with someone. he's a bit better now. wink.gif

 

At the end of the night we wanted to continue chatting in a quieter environment so we took his car to go and try find a place. Before he started up the car he turned around and asked me if he could kiss me. I thought it was so cute that he would ask! We never actually found a coffee place opened at that hour, so we just stayed in his car for a while.

We met in college. He was my resident advisor in the dorm and lived next door. He would often "stop by" to advise me of dorm events. Finally he asked me out and we went to the art museum and to a quaint Italian restaurant. Back to the dorm where he asked if he could kiss me. We had to hide the relationship for the rest of the year or he could've lost his job. Cut to 8 years later and here we are.

Ok, so I told FI about what I wrote here and apparently I lied. We didn't talk on the phone before we first met, we only chatted. LOL

 

Also, he wants me to tell the back story of why we started chatting that particular night. We had both sent each other a smile and exchanged 1 or 2 emails through Lavalife, but I was going to be busy all week-end with a friend from out of town visiting. She arrived Friday morning and we were gonna go out dancing that night, but on our way back from the beach late afternoon we got hit by another car. None of us got too badly hurt, though she did have to spend the night at the hospital. I only had to stay a couple of hours at the hospital, so here I was, home alone on a Friday night. I sent another email to the guy and he too was home so we went on MSN and started chatting. He thinks if it wasn't for the accident the timing might have never been right. wink.gif

 

As for knowing he was the one, no I didn't. I actually thought he was too nice at first, but turns out he is just nice enough. :-)

My whole life led to me meeting my FI. I didnt really believe in fate like I do now. No matter what life brings, always take it's journey because that is what life is about and the best things are from the journey.

 

It all started in the beginning of 2006 when I decided to make a big change in my life. I recently broke off an engagement with a guy I was with for 4 years and was completely lost (didnt know myself anymore and so needed a change). When I was little I always dreamt about being in the mountains and one day I decided to move to Colorado from Texas. So I transferred with the company I worked for to Colorado and it's been the best decision I have ever made. Yes I miss my family and friends but I met the man of my dreams.

 

My FI is from Ohio and he moved to Denver about 9 months before I did. We worked for the same company so at first it was a no - no to date. We would hang out with other mutual friends and I always felt there was something between us but never persued it. One day we felt like hanging out but one one else did... we got drunk and one thing led to another. We have been together ever since...

 

The funny thing is that our lives are the same but reversed. We are both only children, he was raised by his mom and I was raised by my dad. He is a mama's boy and I'm a daddy's girl... go figure!

 

Sorry if I dont make sense... I have been drinking and it's Friday!smile159.gif

wow, I feel like I'm reading my story!!! I moved from NC to Atlanta b/c I broke of an engagement. FI had moved to Atl from Boston 6 months before me as a last shot to saving his marriage. We worked for the same company as well. His marriage obviously ended and that new years we ended up at the same party...got drunk together, one thing led to another and the rest is history. the next week we went on our first official date like I had posted earlier. So I feel you on the fate thing...everything happens for a reason!!

FI and I have been online friends for... 7 years or so. However, at the time, I was dating someone else. When my boyfriend at the time told me that he had to move to Texas, I decided to come along even though I wasn't too crazy about the place.

About 3 months after moving here, things with the ex fell apart. My best friend here ended up moving to Dallas (about 4 hours away), too. I was so bummed. I spent a lot of time talking with FI online and he decided to come visit me (he lived in Cali) to cheer me up.

After that first meeting, there was just no denying that there was something else going on here. He canceled his return flight and stayed in Texas. Crazy, right?!

I had been invited that evening for dinner and so had Paul again neither of us knew.We have been dating ever since.On valentines day he woke me at lunchtime as i had been on nights and presented me with a diamond ring which he said was a promise ring.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
