    Thought this would be a cool thread, and after doing a search I didn't see one like it. So how did you meet your spouse or girlfriend/ boyfriend, and/or where? Think this could be a cool thread if ya don't mind sharing.

    She was a Bartender at a nightclub and I was a bouncer. Bouncers get all the chicks but get paid crap:(

    I was managing a bar and she was the owners niece, she was looking for a side job, just a few hours a week. She worked one evening, a four hour shift and that was that. Life as I know it hasn't been the same since LOL

    I sat next to her and her roommates at church. About halfway through she leaned over and asked if she could scratch my back.
    To this day she still claims it was to help her stay awake, but I know a pickup line when I hear one. ;-)

    Cruising for chicks on the downtown "strip" in high school.

    I never thought I would find my wife. We were just looking for girls to flirt and make out with.

    Met her at the library at college. I knew I wasn't the smartest, or best looking, or most athletic, but I knew everyone was looking for an excuse to take a break from studying, so I met a lot of girls there that otherwise probably wouldn't have given me the time of day.

    Met her while me and some friends were cruising one night(there isn't much to do around here). She finally pulled over in a toys-r-us parking lot. Had our little fling then after a while went separate ways. A few years later she found me on MySpace of all places. We've been together ever since.

    Sixteen years ago I met her at a college class I was never supposed to take. She walked past me with that tanned body in a purple dress..........and the rest is history. We will be married 12 years this July 1st.

    my current girlfriends was friends with me all through college. I think the first time we actually talked was in watercraft operations. Then she got a job out in idaho for a while, she flew back for christmas and i picked her up at the air port. I guess, she realized how damn good looking i was after not seeing me for a year haaha.
