I met my boyfriend a year ago at the dive bar at the end of my street It was one of those nights that I didnt really feel like going out.... but was physically dragged my a friend of mine. It's funny because that night he also was suppposed to go out with a bunch of his friends that bailed at the last minute - and since he had the night off he decided to head out anyways. Nothing else to extraordinary. I noticed him looking at me as soon as I walked in... then he disappeared for a while I didnt give him a second though - until a little while later when he came over and asked if he could dance ( ) with us.... we ended up hanging out for most of the night, and the rest is history!

I was 21 or 22, newly separated with 2 babies, working as an office manager for a private investigation company. He was 36, divorced with an 11 year old boy and a 13 year old girl. My boss hired him as an investigator and told me to familiarize him with the way our office ran.

I HATED him right away...he was cocky and a smart ass and I hoped he would go away. He told me later he thought I was just a hoochy party girl with 2 kids. (I was!)

As soon as he moved into his office, where he had a direct view of my desk, all his "lady friends" started calling and I had to give him the messages. I was getting really pissed about all his personal calls and snitched him off to our boss. We had a little argument but then he asked me out for lunch.

We had a really great time and I was very comfortable with him but figured it was just lunch with a coworker, nothing special. Well, we got back to the office and planned to get back to work, just like a normal day and just like in the movies, BANG!!! Lightening struck. I think I got up to make a copy and he was on his way out to an appointment and we met in a doorway. We kind of brushed together and I swear, we both felt the electricity. I'm sure at that time it was lust but after that day, we spent alot more lunches together and let's just say I'm glad he had a lock on his office door

That was back in 1988. I moved in with him in 1989 and married him in 1995. I'm really glad I didn't get him fired

Met my ExWife at the resturant where she waited on me for like 6 months..
I would flirt w her everyday..pass her notes, when paying my bill.

One day she goes-"Yo dumbass when you gonna ask me out"?
I respond-"Dont u have a boyfriend"?
She says "Yeah but Im giving him the 'boot' soon"..

I say-"Lemme know when youre available"
She goes-"Lets go out this weekend"

So after 700 hamburgers and 1200 cups of coffee I took the girl out.
I was head over hills for her, we married quickly

8 years later, I divorced her..

Those were some EXPENSIVE hamburgers in hind sight.
The buns tasted nice for a while though

I like some here am currently single.

I do have my Gram's story to offer tho.

The year was 1944, and My Gram had finally made the decision to go to America bc she was tired of the war and tired of the constant bombing of Belfast(thats where she lived)and she wanted to be with her family so she decided to get the boat over.

My Grandfather was ordered by the Brothers to go to Canada to teach. The Brothers is the Irish Christian Brothers which like a male nun. Anyways he had to go so he left Moyvanne, Ireland (which is in Southern Ireland) to go to Canada in Sept of 1944.

They both went to Liverpool to get the boat and when the boat tried to leave the harbor an English Crusader boat(the boats that protected them) got bombed and split in half and so for the first week no one was allowed to go on deck.

Anyways one of the days that they were able to go on deck my gram and her friends came across my grandfather and a few of his fellow Irish Christian Brothers and started to flirt with them bc it was "SAFE TO FLIRT WITH THEM BC NOTHING WOUlD HAPPEN"

To make a long story short my grandfather went to Canada and took care of the business he had to take care of and when it came time to go back to Moyvanne he remember my gram and traced her down and the were married in 1946 in New York City by a Judge.
