    Start it off with meeting Lynda on Netmeeting in 1999. Had dozens of "friends" on it back then. One, was in Monte Negro when we were bombing the Serbs/Croatians!

    met mine the old fashioned way.. stalked her on the internet, flew to colorado springs to meet her while she was living with current b/f, and waited her out until she came to her senses and married me.

    Actually, I did a member search while I was still on AOL.. I typed in single female camaro as my search terms ( gotta have common interests, right? ) since her maiden name was beck, she came up early in the rotation.

    I also liked her personal quote.. a lyric from the metal band Nevermore, " don't be afraid to dream outside the lines".. I thought, "damn, a girl who likes cars, and is literate too".. my lucky day..

    I sent an intro email, found out she's as big of a gearhead as me, spent hours on the phone, eventually met, blah blah blah, and we'll have been married 6 years in august.

    In a bar, on the dancefloor, drunk.
    Any other way and it's a risk.

    She worked with my mom , needed a ride to work one day , I had no drivers license ( wasn't the early 20's fun ) so I was in the car getting a ride too . Ended up at the theatre seeing The Matrix 3 weeks later after talking every night on the phone. Been together ever since :thumb:

    I was going to a friends concert and didn't drive yet, so another friend was picking me up. My wife was invited by the friend who was picking me up, so we just talked during the concert, really liked each other and hit it off.. which is wierd because usually we both are pretty shy. We always say we were meant to meet since we met once 2 years before we ever dated, and met once again by chance about 9 months before we started dating. and finally it stuck, lol. its like we had no chioce in the matter.

    I met Jagged while he was fixing an old friend's computer online. I thought that he was the friend and found out who he was, and we then started talking and hanging out. I am glad that I found him, because I plan on keeping him around forever. :)

    Met my wife at a video arcade in '85...she was going out with this other guy at the time. We all hung out quite a bit and eventually she dumped him and I dumped the girl i was with. That was in '89 and we've been together since. July we'll have been married for 14 years.

    In 1986 me and my dad built my (now) mother in law's kitchen cabnets. One day when I was off the guys were telling me about this hot chick that came in with her mom to see the cabnets. When we went to install them after they were built, I saw her, and she smiled at me, and I pretty much fell in love right on the spot. We went out that weekend, and every weekend to follow, until we were married. Been together ever since.
