    Friday QOTW! 6/21 How did you meet your significant other?

    Sorry everyone, I know it has been a month and a half since I have done this. My father passed away during Finals Week and then 5 days later I started an internship in Minneapolis. Still have yet to take any Finals... but anyway...

    I put my list of questions in the randomizer and got this one for my Friday Question of the Week:

    How did you meet your significant other? If single, how did you meet your last significant other? If you've never had a significant other then well... make something up.


    My teams: (as of 9/20/13)
    Cleveland Browns: 0-2 - .000
    Cleveland Indians: 83-70 - .542
    Cleveland Cavs: 24-58 - .293
    Iowa State Cyclones (FB): 0-2 - .000

    9/22/18 & 9/7/19
    Akron and Iowa State
    CAN'T WAIT!

    Sorry to hear about your father, 2015. My condolences.

    To answer the question-

    I'm marrying my significant other on July 6th. My band was playing a show @ Chrome Horse in Cedar Rapids back in May of 2010; my future wife basically kidnapped me after the show. She was pretty hammered, so I was afraid she wouldn't remember who I was the next morning. Fortunately she did.

    At Ernie's Bar in Czech Town CR 1995. I was there with my friends, she was with her's. Asked her to play a game of pool. An after hours party and Tremendous 12 trip to Perkins, it must have been fate. Six years later we got married. Will be married 13 years this Oct.

    I met her in a club down in old Soho. I'd left home just the week prior. I was very inexperienced. We drank sparkling wine and danced all night.

    Re: Friday QOTW! 6/21 How did you meet your significant other?

    glad to see you back! Hope you are doing ok and the internship is going well!

    I met my husband when we each had a one-line solo that we sang to each other in a musical. I remember thinking at the time that he was kind of short but had the prettiest eyes...........apparently he was just a late bloomer. The next time I saw him, two years later, he had grown 10 inches! Had to do a double-take when he walked by me on the bus, could not believe it was the same person!

    Meeting his family is the better story though......we got cast as husband and wife in a musical and the first time his family got to meet me was as husband and I were kissing on stage in front of them and 500 other people. Not awkward at all

    Met at ISU through mutual friends, but when we actually started seeing each other, it all began at Es Tas on a Wednesday night...

    And we are leaving for St. Lucia in T-minus 21 hours for an ~11-month celebration/honeymoon.

    Re: Friday QOTW! 6/21 How did you meet your significant other?

    I remember the date because it was election night. Anyway, a buddy and I went to vote the night George Bush get re-elected (Nov. 2nd 2004) and then went to have a beer at the local tap and there she was, with some friends. I said hi and it was all over with.


    And yes we are both raging alchoholics, drinking at a dive bar on a Tuesday night. I know that's what you're thinking.

    She was engaged to one of my co-workers. When she broke off her engagement to be with me, one of my friends said, "I never knew you were such a stud!" To which I replied, "Neither did I!"

    I met her at a kegger. She was dating the brother of a guy in my fraternity. I've told the story before but it ends with a black eye and us getting married.

    Yes I quoted myself, but wanted to add another tidbit.

    A kind of cool story is the night/early morning at Es Tas was Jan. 27/28, 2010. When I went to get her engagement ring and got the diamond I wanted, I looked at all the certification and the diamond was officially certified on Jan 28, 2010. I may lose my man card, but if that's not meant to be, I don't know what is.
