The real story is that we met online, but when I tell it to my kids I'm going to draw the story out for at least 7 years.

I met her on the internet. I downloaded her. She was a virus and couldn't get rid of her so I married her instead.

Seriously though, we met on a dating site 7 years ago. Neither of us were looking for a date and she lived 3000 miles away. I never thought anything would come of it, but 7 plane tickets later, she moved from the San Francisco Bay area to East Tennessee. I'll never understand what she sees in me, but I'm thankful for it every day.

my pregnant sister was helping to rebuild a church and a guy she knew there was going thru some hard times. he needed to get to evansville (three hours away), but his car was an old cadallac that got single digit milage. i was bored, and had a geo metro with 50+ mpg highway. i insisted she had to come with, but i was willing to take him. he claims when i said j take the wheel and leaned into the glove box he knew. it was 4yrs after that before we started dating, it was 12 yrs early this month we have been married.

I met the mother of my daughters (aka my ex-wife) in church ("College and Careers Fellowship Group") in early 1985 or so (we were married in June 1986).

My current gf, I met on match.com about six years ago (our first date was on April 15).

I met her over a fantasy novel in a hospital. That's the start of the story that I tell my furry kids.

Mostly, they just lick themselves while I talk.

@capguncowboy: I had to import mine from Germany, so I can sympathize. Nor do I understand what attracted her to me, but I'm glad she has bad taste and low standards. :D

How come Woot! added " " around the title of "How I Met Your Mother"?
When I wrote this question, I didn't have any quotes around it.
Is it a legal issue?

I was 14 and met my future husband at the first bar mitzvah that I had ever attended. An extremely romantic story I'm sure.

Well I've known myself my whole life, but I haven't met their father yet (as far as I know).

The show is called "How I met your mother".
"How I met my wife" is a completely different story.

My story would have to be "How I Met Your Father." Yes, it was at a bar near LSU campus. He tried to pick me up. I said no. Our first date was 34 years ago TODAY! In May we will celebrate our 31st anniversary.

My kids mother and I met while sneaking on the roof of the highschool gym for a smoke. We were together for 10 years. Now we are happily divorced and share custody of our 2 beautiful girls.

I met my wife while in college through mutual friends, thought it would be a summer fling because she would be leaving to go back to school at the end of summer. But we made road trips (her more then me) and we made the long distance thing work for almost 4 years before getting engaged and then married shortly after.

I am thankful for her everyday and get the best reminder of why I married her when I watch her with our daughter, she is a great mother.

I bagged her.

Seriously, we worked at a small grocery store and I was the bag boy.

Met my hubs on okcupid.com.

Actually, here's the quickish story (I have a longer one that started a few years before I met him, but I won't bore you all with that.)

He checked out my profile, it popped up on my screen.
So, I checked out his. He had a picture where he was trying to showcase his tattoos, but wanted more "oomph" to the picture. He achieved this by posing with a friggin shotgun, captioned with the words, "Don't mind the shotgun, it's just a prop for the photos." I had to say something. Couldn't help myself. So I wrote him, quoted that caption and said,
"Is that the last thing you said before her screaming started?"
(Meanwhile, I'm picturing a Silence of the Lambs scenario)
He responded so candidly and took my mockery of him with such a light heart, we ended up having a wonderful conversation, then another, then another, then dinner. We were engaged 9 months later. I love that man. And that shotgun.

I met DH in a chorus in France. Our first date I stood him up. I'd never done that before but I thought the way he'd asked was weird. But he had tix to the ballet and he was damned if he wasn't going to use them, so he left the theatre where we were to meet & fetched me at my apt.

I met his father one Sunday morning when he arrived at the town house (not condo, but house in town), as he'd come into town for church. After being introduced to me he looked straight at me and asked, "Sleep well?"
