1. How did you first meet your now DH?

We were both in the Air Force and stationed at Kadena AB, Okinawa, Japan. The shop that we worked at was on the opposite side of the base from where the dorms were, since few airman had vehicles we had a shop truck to take us back and forth to work. Driving the truck was one of his duties so he was always the first one there. I was very nervous since it was my first day in the "real" Air Force (my first assignment after tech school) so I also got there very early. We had about 15 minutes alone before our co-workers strted arriving.

2. What was your first date like?

It was he, I and a bunch of co-workers. we went out to eat and then to a stripper banana show.

3. How long did you date him before you got married?

About 17 months.

4. Do you have a "song" for the two of you?

Not really but I cannot hear Keeper of the Stars without thinking of him.

5. What was it about your dh that made you realize he was the one?

I am very much an introvet and he was the first person that I ever met that I was completely at ease with.

1. In college. We were both dating others at the time, though. Few months after we graduated, I was dumped by my then BF. My dh asked me out and I remember telling him that I'll go out with him but he should know at that I'm "on the rebound" so it may not work out between us. (lol)

2. I don't remember! Is that horrible?

3. 5 years

4. Well, maybe our wedding song: "Can't Take My Eyes Off of You." by Frankie Valle.

5. It just felt right.

Sure, but I must say, it's in DH's blood.

Lets see.................

1. First met about 6 years before we actually started dating. We were aquaintances, had a lot of the same friends, and worked for the same company. 2 groups of mutual friends started trying to set us up about 2 months after I *finally* broke off a 7 year relationship.

2. Our first date-hmmm. The first time he called me to ask me out, we ended up talking on the phone for 3 hrs and then we decided it was too late to go anywhere. The next time we met for drinks at a pub.

3. We dated for 1 yr 2 months before marriage

4. Hmmm not a particular song, but for our first Valentines day, he made a tape of a bunch of *love* songs (I use the term love loosely, they were all pretty much headbanger type songs, lol). It was SO touching, I still have that tape somewhere!!!

5. I guess I knew he was the one, because I saw who he was underneath a rather gruff exterior. And he had this beautiful little daughter whom I fell head over heels in love with the first moment I saw her. And seeing what a dedicated father he had been in the face of so much adversity.
