Just wanted to share the story of how me and dh got together cause I think it's so sweet.<br><br>
I met him one week after I moved to town through my father. He gave me his number and asked what I was doing that evening, but I was trying to be cool so I told him I was busy but that I would call. I really had the hots for him though, and it had been such a boring and lonely week in a new state, so I caved and called him. He came and picked me up and we went out and had a great time. He came back to my place and ended up in my bed and never left! Seriously... from that night on we were together. I can remember he told me he "wasn't looking for a relationship" and then 2 weeks later was asking me if we were serious saying he wanted us to be. 2 months later he moved all his stuff in with me. 4 months after that we were pregnant. A month later he proposed. 4mo after the baby was born we got preggo again (whoops) and we are expecting a girl in Aug. We have been together for 2 years at the end of this month. It was love (or at least lust, lol) at first sight.<br><br>
Anyone else want to share?

Awww... Love hearing these stories.<br><br>
Met BF while in an off-and-on, unresolved relationship with someone else. He had every knockout factor that I had for men:<br><br>
1) Child.<br><br>
2) Past jail time for drug use<br><br>
3) Living with his MOTHER (didn't find that out until after the first date).<br><br>
We went on two dates. My mother told me to stay away (due to the child). "You don't need that," is what she actually said, I believe. I broke it off, with the promise of friendship.<br><br>
We actually stayed friends. Chatted online a lot. We got together one night (after I had disposed of the previous relationship) to go to an art crawl. As friends. He grabbed my elbow to lead me in a different direction. My stomach fell to the floor. I knew he was it for me.<br><br>
We stayed friends. I wondered why he wasn't making a move. He thought we were supposed to be just friends (even though he like me). Finally, one night we went for a walk in the rain. When he left I kissed him. After that, it was on.<br><br>
A year after that, we decided to have a baby. Nine months and ten days later, we had a son.<br><br>
Life is not always easy, but it is wonderful.<br><br>
In about a year, we will have the money to have the wedding we want. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love">

I ended a relationship in October of 2004 with a guy who couldn't (and wouldn't) commit. It was emotionally horrible...I miscarried his baby and broke up with him all in one week. We were supposed to go visit my family together in Northern California but since we had broken up, I wasn't planning on going (for Thanksgiving). My dad talked me into it and paid for my plane ticket. Well, guess who I sat next to on the plane?? I thought he was pretty cute, but young (he's Japanese and looks about 8 years younger than he is). He turned to me after we both sat there in silence for a bit and said, "so...did the delays mess up your holiday plans"? That's our little joke, because it was such a line! We talked the entire two hour flight and even hung out in the Portland airport together while we waited for our connecting flights. We ended up exchanging email addresses that night. I was really in no mood to get in to something, so he had to chase me a bit. I was still on and off with my ex when one day I realized that my dh was the man of my dreams and that if I didn't snatch him up, I would miss out on something wonderful. That night, I called my ex and told him to stop calling me and started seriously dating my dh. 6 months later we moved in together and 10 months after that we got married (and pregnant a month later). It's been a whirlwind relationship, but we've already done so well together through it all!!<br><br>

i guess i'll chime in since the last one was such an awe thats incredible moment. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br><br>
i don't remember the first time I met dh...i don't remember the 2nd, 3rd or 4th either. no i was not drunk or otherwise indesposed. our parents were best friends. they knew each other before we were born. we met the first time OFFICIALLY when i was 8 weeks old and he was about 7 months. i have the picture to prove it! <a href="http://img215.imageshack.us/img215/7106/colorzx3.jpg.....i'm" target="_blank">http://img215.imageshack.us/img215/7106/colorzx3.jpg.....i'm</a> the skinny one! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
we have known each other our whole lives. we've been friends and then teenage horny kids but we NEVER lived near enough to have a relationship. we went on 2 official dates. when he turned 18 he went into the air force and i got pregnant. he told me that if i needed help to call him. he sent me money because we were so broke, he paid for a cell phone for me even though he got nothing in return. on october 3rd his plane landed in MO (where our parents live) and i went into labor (this was totally unplanned and I didn't even know he was on leave until he got to the hospital). on oct 4th ds was born. a couple times he, FIL and mom came to visit the first week to help, oct 15 i drove to MO to visit more and confessed to dh that we weren't going to make it (BF and I financially) and I asked if the offer to move out to az with him was still open. he said yes and asked if i wanted to get married or wait. i said we should get married because you will have more money for rent and insurance, on oct 18th we got our marriage license and oct 19th we got married. a few days later (keep in mind ds is 3 weeks old now) we moved to arizona. we've been married 2 1/2 years and i have grown to love him differently already but i know that we will always be friends even if we fall out of (romatic) love for whatever reason.<br><br>
the whole twist to the story (as if it alone wasn't enough) is that in Feb 04 (1 month pg with ds) our parents fell out of friendship (long story bad breakup). dh and I had started forgeing our own romantic adult relationship only a few months prior. my mother was devastated....a friend of 20 years betrayed her in her hour of need and she wondered why she had wasted so much time and energy. i told her that she kept this friend so that i could have my husband and my children. if i had not known dh i would not have my daugheter, my life would be dramatically different and i am so happy that my mother was the person who gave him to me. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/loveeyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Loveeyes">:

Here is our story from DH's point of view - he is a much better writer than I am. And no, we don't work for eHarmony <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"><br><br>
I was on a mission. A calling. A quest. I was looking for my soul-mate, and I was bound and determined to go to the ends of the earth to find her. I was having decent success meeting people in public, but no one I could foresee spending my life with. I first joined eHarmony in July of 2004 with an annual membership. I spent several months online in open communications and eventually even met a few people – but similar to my previous dating history, I couldn’t find anyone that really captivated me. Over time I began to lose hope and interest in the service until my membership expired in August of 2005.<br><br>
Over the course of the next few months I renewed my commitment to finding the perfect girl. My new resolve to find my soul-mate was now stronger than ever, and I believed that if I enrolled in as many dating services as possible I would increase my odds of meeting that special someone. I joined a considerable number of dating services, from the high-dollar personal match making services to several online dating services. I was now seeing more people than ever, and I felt that it was only a matter of time before I met my soul-mate. I couldn’t have been more wrong. I quickly noticed that the “scientific processes” employed by other services to match individuals was lackluster at best. I was severely disappointed on several occasions by being matched with individuals who didn’t exhibit any similarities. I was shocked to learn that the national match making service I had joined, a very well known name, simply placed pictures of potential couples next to one another to see how they looked to create potential matches. Needless to say, I wasn’t happy.<br><br>
On Christmas Eve, December 24th, 2005 I sat home alone and began feeling sorry for myself. I began recounting my best matches, and realized that they were all on eHarmony! Although I had yet to find that special someone, eHarmony had provided me with some very interesting people. I decided that my Christmas gift to myself would be a new annual membership to eHarmony, so I renewed my membership that Christmas Eve.<br><br>
Almost immediately I received my first new matches. And almost as fast as I had received my new matches, I received a first communication from “Kelsi”. I admit that at first I maintained a bit of skepticism, and my normal “play it cool” attitude required that I wait a couple of days before responding. Kelsi didn’t seem to play by these same rules, for as soon as I would reply I would receive a response from her in what seemed like minutes. During our first open communication, I was immediately struck that I had found someone who put as much effort and thought into their responses as I did! Kelsi actually maintained interesting conversation, and the more I learned about her the more fascinated I was! A first date was inevitable, and I couldn’t wait.<br><br>
Fast forward to January 7, and I had a hot date planned at 5pm with Kelsi. At this point I already knew that I connected well with Kelsi in conversation, but how would I feel when I first saw her? As she pulled up, I leaned over to direct her where to park and got my first glimpse of her. Immediately my heart sunk deep in my chest and I began feeling butterflies. Kelsi was stunning. Absolutely beautiful. I was certainly attracted to her, but there was still plenty to learn about one another. After a quiet dinner, we chose to go ice skating. During the drive, I noticed Kelsi singing along to some of the songs on the radio. Not just any songs, but songs by my favorite artist. At this point I realized we had a lot in common, and that this girl was very special indeed.<br><br>
After unsuccessfully finding an open ice skating rink, we elected to return to my house and watch The Wedding Crashers. The movie was great, however it was once the movie ended that we really got to talking and discovering more about each other that was truly special. We ended up talking for more than seven hours until 4am! I knew during this evening that I would spend the rest of my life with this incredible woman.<br><br>
Over the course of the next several weeks I began planning my proposal. There were no doubts in my mind that this is the woman I wanted to marry. I devised a plan to propose to Kelsi as her knight in shining armor on a white stallion. Seeing as I didn’t know how to ride a horse, I contacted a local stable and began lessons. I also managed to locate a costume shop with a silver knight’s costume. The plan was set.<br><br>
On February 7th, one month from the day we first met, I called Kelsi and told her I was broken down on the side of the road and gave her directions my location (in actuality, it was the stables). Unfortunately, before she was to arrive, I was going through a final run through when the horse spooked (likely due to the suit of armor) and took off. Being a novice rider, I was unable to hold on and was thrown into a concrete wall. Enter ambulance.<br><br>
As I was being wheeled into the emergency roomed, dazed and with a deep gash in my ear, I saw Kelsi at my side. By this time she had figured what was supposed to happen, and told me I could delay my plan for another time. I told her that I wasn’t about to wait any longer, and I proposed to her in the emergency room amongst a cheering crowd.<br><br>
The next several months were amazing. We decided we couldn’t wait to be married, so we planned and had a beautiful wedding on June 17, 2006 on the beach of the eastern shore in Oxford, MD. We shared a magical honeymoon in Hawaii on the islands of Oahu and Maui.<br><br>
Kelsi is everything I had been searching for. She is my soul mate, my best friend, my other half. It is clearly evidenced in a note I wrote to her in open communication on January 18th, shortly after we had first met: “Dearest Kelsi, I am sitting here thinking about you and only you. I can’t concentrate on anything. As soon as I try to focus on my work, my thoughts keep drifting back to you; to us. I feel as though I am the luckiest man in the world, I never thought I would ever meet someone like you. I have spent the last 32 years looking for you, and here you are, right in front of me. I close my eyes and I see you smiling and laughing. I keep waiting to wake up from this dream that I have been in for the past few weeks, then I realize that this is much better then any dream could be, it is true; it is love. I look forward to every single minute that I have with you, and I couldn’t, and don’t want to imagine my life without you in it. Your smile is all that I need to make it through a day. Thank you for bringing so much joy into my world! I love you!”<br><br>
Obviously Kelsi felt the same, as displayed in an e-mail sent to me January 19th: “I really am a sad creature. I spend most of my time thinking about you, wishing you were with me, and dreaming about our life together. I too can’t wait for all those firsts together (and seconds and thirds). I am so excited to know that soon we will be able to wake up together, go to sleep together, and just talk so much more than we can now. I want to be able to talk with you late at night when the lights are out, and wake up to your smiling face (I don’t actually know if you will be smiling at 5 in the morning). I can’t wait for us to be a family. I love you with all my heart because you are my soul mate. Oh, and I looked that word up, to see what the definition was: one’s true love. Its synonyms are alter ego, companion, confidante, friend, heart’s desire, helpmate, kindred soul, kindred spirit, lover, one’s promised, partner, and true love. All of these are words I can use to describe you!”<br><br>
We planned a pregnancy and on July 23 we learned that we are expecting. We had our baby girl on April 2nd, 2007! We are so incredibly thankful to have found one another, to your incredible service, and especially to Dr. Warren for bringing us together. Kelsi is the best Christmas present I have ever received. We are a testament to the quality and success of eHarmony.
