I love recounting how my husband and I met. I love sharing the story and hearing how other couples met too! I would love for my readers to participate in this, sharing your story. I will occasionally write up a fictional peice of how my husband and I COULD have met just for fun. If you’re single, how do you imagine meeting that special someone?
Here is how my husband and I met, even if he might tell it differently 🙂
I remember my husband from when I was a teenager. His sister and I were friends. Shaun was always cute and VERY nice to me. We danced together at youth dances and I could always count on him to make me smile. Over the years, I never forgot Shaun. Years ago when living with flatmates in London, a girlfriend and I were talking about boys back home. I mentioned Shaun, the boy who always made me feel good about myself.
One summer I went on holiday to Greece with another girlfriend of mine and I made a decision. I would get married in three years, in 2007. By then I would be ready to be committed so I asked God to send me my husband. I shared this new plan with friends and although we laughed about it, I was actually quite serious!
The 2007 New Year rolled around and I found myself single. How was this going to work when I was supposed to be getting married that year? On February 3rd something happened. I was reconnecting with my old friends in Ohio online when I saw a cute face. Gathering up some courage, I wrote a very short flirty two-sentence message to this cute stranger and pressed “send”. The next day I had a reply in my inbox from Shaun!
I hadn’t recognised him at first, so many years had gone by, but knowing it was him made me so happy! We wrote each other everyday. And it didn’t take long to feel that feeling that you know this is the one. Circumstances might have been a bit odd, he lived over there, I was over here, how were we to make it work? But we did make it work, and we did in fact get married in 2007 just like I had asked God! We now have a beautiful son and another one on the way.
Please share your love story of how you and yours met, we’d love to gush along with you! 🙂
