Hubby and I met at match.com. His subscription was running out and he decided to send out a bunch of winks to everyone who could be a suitable match before giving up. I returned w/an email (I dont' beat around the bush, LOL). He sent me a personality questionaire...he was curious bc he done them and it said his match was an "enigma" and only 4% of the population! Of course, I took the quiz and came out as an enigma, LOL. We had to send many long emails back and forth bc our schedules didn't match up for a couple of weeks. We BOTH kept all our emails and it's great to go back and read them. We were both so open and honest that we can "see" each other there now. If that makes sense...

I met DH when I was 17 and he was 20. I "credit" the fact that I had started smoking for our meeting. My best friend and I both smoked, but our families didn't. We started hanging out at a pool hall to explain why we smelled like smoke. One day I saw DH approaching us, and I thought he was going to hit on my friend (that was the norm), but he talked to me. I still remember what I was wearing that day, and DH remembers a song that played while we were talking!

Oh what a cute note RoseAnn,
Yes that would have been nice to hang onto that note.
Nice you were able to attend their wedding & keep in touch.
Glad things worked out for you & DH :)

Hi Carol,
LOL on the story why you smelled like smoke
Did they believe you & when, if you did did you quit?
Glad your DH approached you & not your roommate
Wow on remembering what you had worn that day, impressive!
Aww that's neat DH still remembers the song that was playing that day.
Great story :)

DH and I met in a roleplaying chat room on Yahoo Chat. This was in December 1998. He lived in CA and I was in TN. Over the next year we chatted online, talked on the phone and sent e-mails to each other several times a day. Also during that year DH moved with his family to MI. In December 1999 he came down to TN to spend the holidays with me and went back up to MI shortly after New Year's. Then he came back down to TN in late January. He proposed on Valentine's Day 2000 and we got married that October.

Thanks, Hugs! Unfortunately, DH and I are both still smokers - me for 20 years (since age 15) and him 25 years (since age 13). We plan to quit before the end of the year.

LOL, I don't know that it's impressive; I always chalked it up to my strange memory. But once DH and I were together, I realized there was a reason I always remembered that day. We have lots of stories like that, and a ton of
