Shugga, seems to me that maybe he's waiting for you to pop the question. Afterall, you did take the initiative getting the relationship started, and it is the 21st century.....

I didn't even get a proposal. I got the "well, myabe we should get married" speech. (I never said he was romantic!).

LOL debsuewoo...! I got the "some day I'd like my name to be on the mailbox" proposal!
We met at a ...bar...he was supposed to meet my sister, I was the designated driver for my 2 sisters celebrating that night. She was pretty tipsy and just laughed but wouldn't really talk to him, so I did! Then I found out he was 7 years my junior and I didn't want any more to do with him...we dated for a couple years and married in '88. I had 3 children from a previous marriage and he has been a dad to them all without fail, he's my best friend!

I met my DH while my Dad was stationed in Japan. I was 2 mths shy of being 18 when my Dad got the orders to Japan so he made me go w/ the family! I went to Japan kicking & screaming!!

Anyway, I met my DH while I was on a date. I was dating an AF guy. The parties were in the dorms so after the date we went back to the dorms to play games w/ everyone we knew. Well DH to be was there. He was drunk off his rocker!! I walked into the room & said hello to everyone. DH was sitting on the back on a chair. When he saw me he feel over backwards in the chair!!! It was hilarious!!!!! I was enjoying being w/ this other guy. DH to be kept hitting on me. He asked for my #, he asked where I worked (I was 18 but looked around 24). I got mad because he wouldn't leave me alone so I told him that I was in the Navy & I was in Munitions!! That's all that popped up in my mind because that's what my dad did!! Anyway my date brought me home & we never went out again...

After him I started seeing DH's best friend (now isn't that funny?). DH would come on all the dates I had w/ his friend. Finally me & DH became friends. I finally broke it off w/ DH best friend because there was nothing there. Me & DH started spending more time together. Always having a good time. One day we were at a football game just as friends & he leaned over & told me that he has loved me since the first time he saw me!!!! He finally asked if we could "date". I finally gave in.... LOL...

About 6 mths later we were getting very serious... & that dumb man broke up w/ me!!!! He broke my heart! I finally started dating again & DH would be everywhere me & the date were! He was stalking me!! Finally one night at a party I was at w/ this new guy I was seeing (just friends), my DH to be saw my car there & got one of his friends to come in & get me to come outside. Well I did. My DH was drunk AGAIN well he asked me to marry him!!! The nerve!! I told him when he sobered up he should ask me. So the next day he came to my house. Told me he had gotten cold feet that's why he broke up w/ me... but he had plenty of time to think & he knew he wanted to be w/ me. He asked me to marry him & I said yes!

We met in June of 85, got married in Sept 86, & the rest is history!!!

I met my dh in 1998 through a chaparoned blind date. My friend was friends with HIS best friend's wife. They concocted a "date" for us where the 6 of us would go (my friend & her dh, his friend and his wife, Joe and I) Our first "real" date was on my 30th birthday. He brought me the hugest, most beautiful boquet of Fall flowers I have ever seen.

We hit it off right away and were married in September, 1999. less than a year later. We have been blessed with 2 girls, ages 5 and almost 2. As we both suffered from fertility problems with our first marriages, my pregnancy with our 5 year old was a huge shock. We also have 2 dogs, 2 cats and a varying number of fish (I think about 11 at the moment--no recent tragedies in the tank. lol!)

What a FUN topic!! I loved reading everybody's stories.

I met my bf in 7th grade on the school bus. He was two years older and I was one shy girl, so I never tried to talk to him. We finally became good friends my sophomore year of high school and then fell in love at a fireworks display the following fall! We've been together for 3 1/2 years and he is my soulmate and my best friend. A wedding will be along shortly, within the next 4 years or so!

My DH and I met through my sister-in-law ... this had a twist to it lol .. his sister was married to my brother .. she told me she had a good looking brother who was single but dating someone that she knew was wrong for him ... she wanted to introduce us ... I didn't feel comfortable with the fact she was trying to break him up with the gf and told her this.. so time went on.. one night he was at their home having supper and she called and invited me over .. he's very shy and quiet, I'm very outgoing and outspoken ... we talked a little, but mostly my brother and sister-in-law did the talking ... my SIL then invited me to the movies with her and her kids (from a previous marriage) and I accepted... she had invited her brother along too ... she pulled me off to the side while he was busy with her kids playing a video game while waiting for seating to the movie and told me he thought I was cute and really wanted to go out with me.. I told her to tell him "well tell him to ask me for Pete's sake!! How hard is that to do?"... he finally asked me out and 2 years later in 1992, we were married... he has 4 children and I have 2 ... 2 of his lived with us till grown and my 2 lived with us ... so we had 4 children in the home when we married.. they're all grown now and left home so it's just me, him, 2 dachshunds and a beagle ... their our babies now .. I guess we still feel the need to nurture something lol ...

I met my husband at a wedding reception on a blind date! I was living in Nashville, TN, and was coming to Union City, TN, for a wedding of the sister of my best friend and was to serve at the reception. Once I got to town, my best friend told me that she and her aunt had "fixed me up" on a blind date - they had invited him to come to the reception. I just begged and begged her not to, but needless to day, it didn't work. He sat in the parking lot for about 30 minutes trying to decide whether or not to come in. He did, finally, and we hit it off immediately. He and some friends came back to my friend's house for a while that night and I left to go back home (2 1/1 hours away) the next day. My friend gave him my phone number and we started talking every night. Long story short, we were married less than 4 months later - 10 days shy of 4 months to be exact. I moved back to his hometown - I had lived there growing up, so it was a place I knew well. We've been married a little over 13 years and have twin boys who will be 10 in 10 days!

Ok... everyone else told the whole story so here goes. We met New Years Eve... kissed me at midnight. Then we dated the next four days until he has to fly back to school in CA. I want back FSU and we sent letters and called until my spring bread in March. He lived with a family in Newport Beach. They said they'd love to have me so I came out for a week... which turned into two and a half weeks. I left with a promise ring. His family was close to my home town and the plan was that he would come home after the end of the semmester. I had to get a medical release from school that semmester because I was having migranes and they couldn't figure out why. It turned out to be a blessing because. I was free to go back to CA. Two weeks after being home he called my parents and told them he loved me and asked for permission for me to go back to CA. He found me a job and the family he lived with wanted me to move into an extra bedroom. ( He lived in a garage apartment type thing) So I packed and went to CA. Two weeks later we were engaged. He took me out in a little boat off the rock jetti at sunset! It's funny how things all work out!
As a side note.... I wasn't supposed to be at the dance that night. i was on a blind date. If the date was bad, my out was I had to get my sister from the dance. DH was meeting some friends there to go out. But we met and sparks flew!

what a great topic...it brings back lots of wonderful memories!

My DH and I met in college at Baylor University (SIC EM BEARS!). It was the end of spring semester our junior year, and I was going to a dance for a services organization I was in (I was the social chiar and planned the whole thing)and didnt have a date, which I was fine with. But a mutual friend called future husband up and asked him to go with me. I was so mad at my friend for doing that, and my friend almost called it off thinking I would be mean to him. DH and I both had the best time at the dance and became best friends. We spent the next 8 months as friends, didnt start dating till new years, and we were engaged early April. We got married a year latter in May, and we just had our 1st anniversary! It gets better every day. My mom makes wedding cakes, and DH knew that I wanted to learn and start making cakes myself, so this past Christmas he plotted with both our moms to get me cake pans and lots of other good stuff!!! He is so good to me!

I love these stories! My husband and I met at a McDonald's of all places! I was one of the last girls in my group to not have a boyfriend (all the rest were either engaged, about to be, or married). I was just sick of the whole thing and decided I was fine on my own. I had a funny felling that God was going to give me something special on my birthday... something I had been waiting for. I was trying to raise money to go to a youth missions orginization in TX, and just wanted a part-time job to help before I made the move down there. I had an interview at McD's on my birthday, and that was when I first met him. At first, he was interested in my friend, and I was interested in getting to Texas, so we started out as friends. 2 days after I met him (and after I started working) my car was totalled and he drove me back and forth to work and home which caused us to become fast friends. We stayed up late every night just talking and fell in love. 2 mo's. later, we were engaged. we were married 6 mo.'s after we met. We met a lot of opposition from friends and family (cultural barriers and age since he is Puerto Rican and I am 2 1/2 years older), but we knew we were it for each other. So, here we are 6 years later, still best friends and we have 3 kids ages 5, 3 and 1 (almost 2).
