How did you meet your FI / DH?

Recommended Posts

About 2.5 years ago I went up to a guy I had never talked to at a club in LA while I was on vacation and kissed him. He was on vacation as well from Chicago and I was living in Las Vegas. A year later we both moved to LA and are living together and have been a couple for 1.5 years! A lot of my friends said I could never meet a quality guy at a club but I was going to clubs and thought I was a quality girl, so it can happen! Just wondering if anyone else has met that way or if we're part of a minority?

I didnt meet mine at a club, but my parents met at a really seedy bar in my hometown. You can meet quality people anywhere, just have to keep your eyes open!

I can't say that I know of anyone that met in a club and had a happy ending, however, there are always an exception to the rule. As you said, you are definitely quality and likewise in your FI, so anything is possible.

My Brother actually met his wife in a Club they are Happily Married :)

Good Luck to you and it really does not matter where you meet them its how you two mesh. I think its just not the ideal place to start a long term relationship in most peoples eyes!

I actually met my FI at two different bars/clubs. We met the first time when a common friend introduced us at a local bar that all the college kids go to. He was dating another girl at the time, so it was just a friendly introduction. But a couple of months later, my best friend and I were at another bar in uptown Charlotte and I saw him again. This time, he was single and got my number and the rest is history.

 

He is a 9th grade Science teacher...he loves kids and animals...his family is fabulous...he is extremely attractive and has the sweetest, kindest heart of anyone I have ever known. I couldn't have asked for anything more...so yes, I believe you can meet "the one" just about anywhere! It doesn't have to do with where you are, it is just that you are meant to be in that place at that specific time wink.gif

 

Plus, I agree with what you said about you being a quality girl at that bar!!

This happened to Jay and I.. Jay was the weekend DJ at the bar.. and I was pretty much the new bar groupie for that certain place. It took almost 6 months before we even chatted really... even with him sending drinks my way.. I had sworn off DJ's after the last one. It happened on Halloween when the first spark hit! This little Dorothy was soon interested in the man in scrubs behind the booth. Then Christmas came.. and he asked me to go with my GF to a private party he was Djing ... My GF and I went, and as soon as our first slow dance... I knew he was the man I was going to marry... it took 7 years until 2 weeks ago, when we said yes!!

I met my DH in a bar 24 years ago. My girlfriend took me there to meet another guy that was playing in the band. I thought the guy was ugly and spotted Rob with his leather jacket and cute black hat. I asked my gf who he was and she said he was the brother of the drummer. Come to find out, the drummer used to date my sister a few years back but I never met his brother! The rest is history, albeit a weird one, we got married in 1990, divorced in 1998 and remarried in 2008!

Does a club and a bar count as the same thing? Technically we kinda already knew each other since we went to high school together, but we never spoke. We hung out in the same group but were both dating other people. So his senior year of college, and my junior year, we were at the same New Years Eve party. After a few drinks, I went up to talk to him about this childhood friend of his that had moved away when they were young, that I was actually working with over the Christmas break. He turned out to be my New Years kiss, and the rest is history. So I guess so?

    • Sorry you had to deal with this I hoped it worked out. It seems to be every few months a new store will be in the  'if' stage and to the 'when' stage.  Big businesses like this don't notify the employees or customers before they close down...that would cause even more losses.  One day there are signs on the door and the business is done.  And lots of people (employees and customers...not to mention the creditors that they owe millions to) get screwed immediately with little help to be found anywhere.  Look at alfred angelo, although they had less retail stores than David's Bridal, they may have had more sales than them as a company.  They were the largest manufacturer of dresses and were carried by thousands of independent stores across the world (not just the 60+ branded stores they had).  If you google search Davids Bridal going bankrupt, they are listed on all the sites that post retail stores on life support.  They have more debt than they will be able to service in 2019 and the only question right now is if they'll make it that far.  Once the debt comes due, it's almost a 100% certainty that the company will be done.  But it's also more probable than not that the bankruptcy will happen much sooner than that.  The argument about them getting a new line or how big they are isn't a good argument if you look at the history of how these normally happen.  Alfred Angelo had a brand new line of dresses that never even hit the stores but were made overseas already...those all made their first appearances at the liquidation auctions.  I'm not trying to scare anyone here, but just trying to make sure that people understand that when a company gets to this point, it's definitely a roll of the dice if you are ordering something that you can't take home today.  How much of a risk?  That's hard to say, but I am extremely confident that the pain felt when alfred angelo closed 61 stores will be even greater when Davids Bridal closes 300+ stores…and when there are other great discount dress stores out there like Bridepower or Vows Bridal Outlet on the East Coast or Brilliant Bridal in the West (and plenty of others as well), I don’t think I would personally recommend any of my friends to take that risk!  But that’s just me:)
    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
