My first real job in highschool. I was bagging groceries and there was a pretty cute guy on the register. A bunch of other giggly girls were asking who they all thought were cute in the store...it was slim pickings in a rural grocery store. They finally asked me who I'd thought was cute. I was worried they would say something but they assured me they wouldn't....

They then ran off to the wine isle where BP was stocking to ask if BP had a girlfriend. I was so embarrassed , I wasn't the girl who sat around giggling about boys. I thought that was the end of it. He was in college so I likely seemed like an airhead.

A couple days later BP called and mumbled to him self almost incoherently about me liking him. I got bothered and asked if he wanted to go on a date if that was why he was calling. At first I had thought he was calling to tell me I was late to work.

Then we started off having some meh dates but it got better. We dated for a couple years . The rest you all know.

On the internet. Went on an afternoon date, she decided she wanted to come back to my place, some things happened, then she left to meet the other guy she had lined up for that evening.

Me: Just out of HS, working Security at an insurance company, armed with a walkie-talkie and a tie.
Her: Still in HS, on a work/study program (school in the mornings, work in the afternoon).

She was in the typing pool until 4:30, when she came out front to man the switchboard. I was assigned to stand guard at the front entrance right by the switchboard. Both of us young and unsure how to talk to each other, but we finally did. First date in 1975, married in 1979, first daughter in 1980, second daughter in 1988 - my sweetie gets more lovely every day.

Being older, times were different. Mrs. Lug sneaked by my clan, entered my cave, and hit me on the head with her club. She drug me back to her cave by my hair (much thicker back then) and it's been eternal bliss ever since!

or.......we met at work.

This little cute girl was hired at work. She showed up with her 5 speed Mini Cooper. I started talking to her about her car, and started taking smoke breaks together. 6 years later, we're smoke free, and we're still together.
And, I'm hoping to ask her the question soon.

Friend of a friend, she came to a gig.
Funny thing is, we had a lot of friends in common but never met before.

Pretty much identical here.

A buddy of mine invited a girl to come see my band play, back when I was living in Baton Rouge. She showed up, while he did not. I figured she was fair game if he was going to be an ass and stand her up.

We exchanged numbers, and she claimed she wasn't sure if her number was right, as she'd just moved in to a new apartment. As a result, I figured she'd given me a bullshit/fake number, so I threw it away basically right after she left. A week later, she calls me pissed off, asking why I hadn't called her. I explained my (shitty) logic, and she came out to hang at a gig in New Orleans that night.

At the time, I was still gigging in bar rooms for a living, while she was finishing her first year of law school. I proposed six months after we met. Two kids and almost 13 years later, we're still together.

My wife is a retired sex worker; I met her in her professional capacity. She and I both retired from the hobby when we went exclusive. Married almost nine years now.

What do I win?

At a Super Bowl party my band was playing at.

At the time, neither one of us was actively looking for someone. No expectations, no pressure. That made getting to know each other easy.

Met on OK Cupid!

Yeah..... I know!

But here's the deal....... I had this revelation a couple of years after the divorce, bankruptcy and brief homelessness. I decided I was too nice a guy, and was going to quit getting emotionally involved, and was gonna become a real asshat! I was gonna just take women for whatever I could- sex, money, whatever! No entanglements.

I went on a date with this woman with the worst of intentions.......and find out I actually liked her, and couldn't be an asshat! We've been together 11 years now!

The Herp!!!



I am surprised by how many people have actually met their SO online. The few times that I went that route all I got was hot sex and some dinners dates.

To be frank, that was a horrible plan. I'm glad you didn't follow through with it.

I was coming off a 25 year relationship and 18 year marriage. Probably clinically insane, but still playing gigs.

There was a cute gal that liked Bucket, we started talking...and as it developed we had a lot in common.

So bottom line - in a bar.

My partner was a member of the college radio station at our alma mater when he was a student and we met when he came back for some alumni thing. He caught my attention but I was too shy to act on it at the time. We went to the Pitchfork fest in 2010 with some other students and alumni and I got over being so shy...the weekend after (?) I went back to Cincinnati to hang out and we've been together since.
