How we met

Way back in 2003 I decided to join Match.com. My ex-fiance & I broke up in late 2002. So I was ready to meet someone new. I went out a date with 2 different guys. Didn't like either. Then in June this cute long haired guy sent me an e mail. I'm a rocker chic & love long haired guys. Well he had facial hair (which I hate) & the pics weren't too great, but we had a lot in common, so I wrote him back. I didn't even have a pic on my page. We talked on the phone & e mailed each other. It was Summer, so we both had things going on. We didn't meet till Aug 31st. We met at a Mexican restaurant. He was a few minutes late & I thought he was standing me up. I stood in the front hall of the restaurant waiting. Finally he came running in with flowers. That's why he was late cause he stopped to get flowers. By the end of the date I decided to end my membership to Match. So we'll be celebrating 6 years together this year & our 3 year wedding anni is in May.

We were introduced by our best friends. Neither of us had been dating for a while (4 years!) and they thought we 'needed to get out there.' Neither of them thought there would be a second date. They set us up to meet at my BFF's birthday party. Then T and I and 2 other couples hit a pub for a while. Finally, we went to an all-night coffee house and stayed up talking and laughing until 5:15 in the morning.

We will have been together 8 years and married for 5 in April.

Awe, great story! That's so cool that you met through Match.com! I know a few people who met through there or Eharmony. I guess those stories they have on their commercials really do happen! ☺ Congratulations on 6 years together!
