How did you meet your partner and how did you ask them out/realise they're special?

I just thought this would be a quite interesting thread, as a lot of people have met people in many different avenues such as work, through friends, clubbing or even online but how did you manage to ask out your partner out?

Also, if the relationship is leading somewhere, what made you realise they're the one you want to spend the rest of your life with?

The best responses will all get rep.

Look RFM.

No matter how hard you try, I'm always going to say no.

I was 16 in a party, had spotted her a few times in this party so whilst she was dancing i went over pinched her backside, spun her around and started necking her!!! she followed and i picked her up and split her skirt! LOL. Man I had such a way with the ladies.........

I managed to find her number off someone who knew someone and it led to meeting up for 3 months until we decided to start seeing each other.
We have now been together 8 years and are engaged and planning to marry in 2 years time.

we met in argos and one thing led to another and she ended up back at mine, I knew she was special the first time I started to play pro evo on her and from then on in I was caught in her glorious web of awesomeness.

What are you on about mate...you're the one that's been asking for my digits since last month and then you told me you thought I weren't interested, so you moved on to someone else. :giggle:

Despite that, you managed to get my number yesterday but hope it's put to good use. :-D

(There's a reason all of the events occured but my joke version has me in stitches lol)

We both worked in Primark for Saturday jobs nearly 14 years ago. I threw a coat hanger at him and then cornered him in the lingerie section of the stock room :lol:

met her in college I realised she was 'the one' when I found out how easy she was :lol:

I know that he is the right person for me because even when Im feeling at my worst and in a really really bad mood ( which is often...) he makes me smile and makes me laugh.....and he is the only person who has ever realy cared about me...not just out for what he can get........right enough of this mush....he is well fit too !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :giggle: xx



Yeah...I have noticed that you're very moody :giggle: but hopefully the person in question will change that and despite what you think, I'm positive that a lot more people care about you than you seem to think. :thumbsup:

Good luck

congrats mate...the only concerning thing is...I'm starting to see a pattern of everyone hooking up after realising how easy their partner is. :giggle:

Does this mean easy women make the best wives? :whistling:

lol, at least you made everyone else in the strip club be envious of your achievement. :giggle:

My story is definitely a lot more romantic and is a match made in heaven...we're definitely soulmates and I can't bare the thought of being away from my darling wife to be for more than a second.

She's without a doubt...the best thing to ever happen to me...that's right...I called her "thing" :lol:

All Fibs.

You sent me your phone number after telling me "I'm all yours". Cant understand how you can claim it any other way. Have you got my number? (There is a good reason!!!):whistling:

I was at st andrews for ian bennetts testimonial game, blues v's jamaica.

Some bird came up to me and said 'my friend fancies you'.
Me and my mate knew who 'the friend' was (same faces at home/away games) but just looked at each other and laughed.

Gave her my number to pass on.

6 years later were engaged and getting married next july.

She hates it when people ask where we met he he he he

Lol, I'd love to see this "I'm all yours" comment...please send me the proof without any editing. :thumbsup:

I definitely have proof of you asking for my number on a couple occasions and then stating "i thought you weren't interested" and then went on to explain you moved on to someone else...how could you break my heart like that Guvvious? :giggle:

Met my OH online, in a chat room! Became friends , he was off to Florida the next week to meet a woman he had been chatting to for months, things didnt turn out, she wasnt what he expected, then someone decided to blow up the Twin Towers he couldnt get a flight home, was stuck in hotel.

Chatted some more ...he flew home , chatted some more, months & months of chatting, i invited him down for the day to meet me kids ..

one thing led to another, 7 years of traveling to each others homes every weekend, kids grew up & left home

now both moved to a new home / living together and dont use chat rooms , were extremely happy

I met my husband when I was 10 - we were in the same class at primary school, and we used to 'go out with' each other

I dumped him for his cousin, and said he was 'disgusting' when he tried to kiss me and stuck his tongue in my mouth, hahaha!

We both went to different senior schools, and he moved out of the area, and I never saw him again, until 5 years ago.

We met, after he had sent me a message on Friends Reunited asking how I was doing, haha! First time I laid eyes on him, I knew he was the one, and he me We got engaged 3 months later, and are happily married now and trying for kids

He's the best thing that's ever happened to me....

Is it from embarrassment?

I met my OH in the smoking room at work!! I had been smoking 20 a day for 8 years and within 6 months of meeting OH I gave up smoking for good I believe I smoked just so I could meet OH. As soon as we met I knew this was 'the one', we moved in together after a few months and got married after we had been together for 18 months on a beach in Tobago and within 2 weeks of returning we were expecting our first baby (far sooner than we anticipated!!), he is now 8, we also have a little girl who is 2 and this year we are celebrating our 11th anniversary I love my OH sooo much, I feel as though there are not the words in the English language to express how much I love my OH, it grows more every day and I really feel like my OH is my soul mate.

I notice RFMan and guv that you are not contributing properly to this thread::whistling: Come on the two of you . Cough up - in a good way.

I met my hubby the first weekend that I was at university, in a pub near to the student halls.It was a bit of a calamity as his friend moved in first and the honour thing meant that it took me a few weeks to wheedle my way into his arms. I fancied him like heck the moment I first saw him and have loved him ever since. We got married in the summer between my first and second years at uni and had our 37th anniversary last year. Still love him to bits.
