Happily attached ladies, give your single sisters some hope!  Talk about your personal "how I met him" love stories and give others the encouragement they need to keep believing that someday they'll meet someone, too!

i met my husband in college... we were both taking the same course but we never took the same subject at the same time... until our department had this dinner-dance for a cause... a friend who was supposed to be my date that day had an urgent matter to attend to, and i was left alone and without a partner to dance with... this guy introduced himself to me, and kept me company the whole night...

he asked me to dance, but he wasnt a good dancer... but what i will never forget about that night was that, as we were dancing, i slipped off the elevated platform... and then, those strong arms held tightly on to me and never let me fall... this guy would (much) later on become my husband...

I met my sweetheart at a training seminar where participants from different companies where invited. He only invited me out on a date on the very last day sa training. The rest is history.  ;D

Me and my hubby are neighbors for more than 10 years na. I knew him back then as the payatot na kulot boy and ako naman yung chubby na kulit girl. I met most of his ex girlfriends since he would bring them to our tambayan pag may party (our friend's house). Then we transferred to a new house, not really super far from the old one, and haven't seen him since then kasi i heard ever since he started work, he seldom goes to the tambayan. Tapos everytime visit ako sa tambayan namin, we would always miss each other. As in, dadating ako nakaalis na sha or dadating sha, i already left. It has been like that for a long time. Until Christmas 2004, It was the first night of the simbang gabi. I was with my cuzns then somebody texted me na "psst suplada..." i didn't know it was his number so i texted back "[textspeak!] u?". Then he texted "look to your right" tapos yun! I saw a tall chinito na kalbo guy,with a warm smile... :) Ever since, we've been together for more than 2 years na... ;D Just recently I asked him, what if I was still the chubby girl you met 10 years ago, would you have approached me sa Church? He told me...I would have recognized that smile from anywhere... ;D

grabe! kinilig ako dito sa story mo sis ielle. kala ko sa novel and film lang nangyayari to, mali pala ako ;)

same is the case with me but minus that dancing moment ( :)). i met my hubby when i was in college. we were both active in our student government. then eto na, with 2 daughters. i did not expect na sya ang magiging better half ko kase he was not my type (really) and did not even meet the standards i have set ( ;D) but i have no regrets coz he is the most wondeful husband in the world. super loving, caring and a great provider.

hay buhay!

Met my husband when I was 16. He is dutch but both the engagement and weddins were held in the Philippines. At first we were just friends until he proposed when we were 23. 2 years after that we got married. We've been together for 9 years and is blessed with a 2 years old son.

He was my college friend and we both migrated to the US after graduation. We were chatting thru YM and texting like good friends do when we decided to meet up. The minute I stepped out of the car, he gave me the biggest, most loving hug I've ever had. Sympre sa una nakakailang coz we've been friends for so long. But his arms around me felt so good and it felt so right. So I hugged him back. He put his face in front of mine and then gave me the sweetest kiss. It felt so good and felt so right so I kissed him back. A few months down the road, we got married after that special night!  ;)

My hubby was working at a company located near our garment shop, whenever he would go to the canteen beside our shop, he'll glance at our store as if he's looking for something, then one time i got sick, so it was mother who took charge that day, when my mom got home, she told me "anak, kilala mo ba yung mestisong intsik na dumadaan dun sa store natin? kasi kanina naka-limang beses dumaan, sinisilip hanggang loob, hinahanap ka ata?" from then on, i took notice of him, then one day, when he passed by, he smiled at me and said "hi"...One of our workers told me that he asked him if i already have a bf, and that time i was brokenhearted, then i was surprised when he gave me a call, and asked me if we could be friends, and i said yes..

After a few weeks of chitchats, he asked if he could visit me at our house and meet my parents, when he went for a visit for the first time, he stripped and fell on his knees infront of my mom, then my mom called me from my room and whispered to me while she was laughing hysterically "ano ba yang manliligaw mo, gwapo nga, lampa naman yata"... ;D

after a few visits and dates, he told me "im inlove with you, do you feel the same way too?" and then we kissed for the first time, after a few months after that, he proposed, and his family from pangasinan did a pamamanhikan, and we got married...i married the "mestisong-intsik-lampa-guy" as my mom called him before, now my mom is always on his side whenever we have lovers quarrel  ;D

I met my hubby back in college, we both worked in the same fastfood chain but in different branches. He had friends in our branch and he visits our branch frequently because it's near his house. We're both from the same town, a tricycle-ride away but we didn't know each other. Then he saw me in our branch and asked about me. Then he got transferred to our branch (sabi nya di daw nya ni-request yun pero his friends awere saying otherwise). We became friends. At that time, there was this ex-bf na bumabalik pero ayoko na sa kanya so, i always ask my hubby to pretend na he's my bf and sabay kami lagi uuwi. Ayun, nagkatotoo. We were boyfriends for 8 years before we got married. We're married for more than 8 years now.  :)

I met my boyfriend which is now my very loving husband, back in college.. 1st year of college to be exact. (may 1999) It was our enrollment in school when the first time I saw him.. we're on queue.. Him, before my turn.. the admin asked ano section kukunin mo? then he answered CE/CF, which is also I have in mind to get as my schedule (block section [textspeak!]) while the admin encoding his information, I saw his second name, very unique,. similar sa cartoon character ng looney toons. :D then he left na. when it's my turn, admin asked the same thing to his., She teased, uy, nakakakita ka lang ng papa, yun nadin kukunin mo, my face turned red by then, [textspeak!] daming tao sa likod  ko no.. hehe. after a week pa since our class stared nung pumasok sha.. super quiet! :D then first day na pumasok sha, nagkataon na saakin sha pinatabi.

He never make ligaw.. we started as friends. my text mate, my phone buddy every night for almost 5 hrs. pumupunta pa sa bahay yan.. :D I think  dun na nag start, after 2 years, naging kami na, officially! that was march 17, 2001. the rest is history.. now, we're 5 years as bf/gf and 1yr and half as a married couple blessed with adorable son.




 i Love my kids! :)

i met my hubby during our training for a new account at work. I came straight from a shift so i was so sleepy na and he was late so we had to wait for him. yon lang. nothing much. then when we were having our mock calls, that's the time we really got to know each other. chat lagi sa ym tapos phone calls then he would go to my place after our shift to eat midnight snack sa carinderia :) 6mos after, we got married na  ;D

we met through the net. it was one of those spur-of-the-moments when i didn't have anything to do. out of boredom, i saw his name in one of those forgotten penpal websites. i was browsing the countries Vietnam, Malaysia and Thailand because i would like to have an asian friend. i wasn't connecting with my friends that time.
although there was nothing really strange about his name, it was the way he advertised it on the above mentioned countries that also included Uganda, which later he told me is one of his fave destinations. he had null description of himself, not enough room for fantasy.
anyway, to make it short. i sent him an intro email. i don't know why. i just did. he wrote back after two weeks.
he wasn't really keen on "talking" so i told him we could stop corresponding as i felt like having a monologue every time i emailed him. it was a gentle order yet firm. it was also honest.
he got scared,  ;D. so he emailed again and asked for forgiveness. after that he couldn't quit. from virtually two emails a week it became two, sometimes three, emails a day.
we called each other, texted each other, he sent messages through my beeper.
it went on till the 11th month when he decided he wanted to see me and confirm if we were going to like each other in person, evidently putting the relationship into the next level.
he arrived. we clicked. then he proposed. i accepted. i left manila three months after we got married. now we have a child.  :D

my husband used to be my boss! he likes to say i filed a sexual harassment case against him, and then we just had a settlement that led to our marriage. that's only a joke, of course. the truth is, the very first time he saw me, he instantly got smitten!  :P
