How did you meet your SO (significant other)?I'll start.
Jen, I totally am with you on the effects of deployment, and more specifically, tours in Iraq.
I met my husband the old fashioned way-the internet, of course :smileyvery-happy:
Sean and I were both in the Army, we met on Valentines day in 2003 because we were both on the same plane...to Iraq!
The first time I met DH, I thought he was an immature, loud-mouth idiot!
I love this topic!
We met in HS, I was a sophomore and he was a Junior. I'm from a small MN town and we don't have a HS so I attended a SD school in my husbands hometown. We knew eachother and hung out with a lot of the same friends but I had been dating a different guy my freshman year.
Anyway, we were at a party and our friend had a hot tub! Well, we ended up spending the entire night in the hot tub together talking and getting to know eachother better! While making out he asked me if I'd be his girlfriend........that was December 1999. We dated for a long time for obvious reason. Got married 2005, welcomed our first daughter Aug. 2006, second daughter March 2009 and here we are again!
Mine is so cliche...but I'll share anyway! I was going to college but would always come home to my small town on the weekends to wait tables. We had a mutual friend and he was telling her about how he didn't want to date anyone but would just like to meet a girl that he could take on dates and hang out with but nothing serious. She thought of me, so one night she set it up so both of us would be at the same bar one night. We hung out for a while and then I gave him my phone number and we immediately starting spending lots of time together. We started dating and got engaged in 2008 and married in 2009. Now we will be having our first child :) So we have the typical "met at the bar" story...but I love him so much :)
