Shut up (or something similar). Sometimes is just time for action! PJ
To my spouse, at the law office she worked for as a legal assistant. I said,"Hello, I am here to see (Name of Attorney)." I was in need of a divorce. Needless to say my fancy for my future bride took me by surprise as getting out of a marriage that was not working well and upon seeing my attorney's legal assistant and mentioning to my friend that I was going to marry this girl that I didn't even know the name of seemed a bit crazy to all that knew me. Well it took 2 years of dating and 43 years of marriage to this women, before she walked out and is now staying with my attorney. The fickle finger of fate really slapped me with a wowzer on this one. When they say one has gone full circle, it certainly fits for me. I am now on a friendly basis with my first wife. My attorney,needless to say, won't be the same one for this divorce. My spouse of 43 years. I learned her name, loved her for 45 years, 43 married. We may not make it to 44. lol
When I was introduced to my darling man and I heard his name,my first word was 'woof' I had never met any man called Rex before but plenty of dogs with that name.He laughed at me and his first word was G'day.(G'daaaaaaaaaaaay) That was over 43 years ago. D :o)
"I didn't know you had a fat one Claus" "biggest in 4 counties"
Ah ok. That was taken from a movie, but it was almost true :)
To my best friend, I don't know, he was my little brother, passed in 2000. To my soon to be spouse? I held her hand and looked into her eyes for an eternity.I don't know for sure what we finally said. :-)
My first words to my friend Rebecca when we were in the same class as 12 year olds: "Do you have a pencil I can borrow?" I had brought only one, and the point on it broke. It was kind of a boring first line, but we're still friends today. The man who eventually became my husband had an intriguing opening line: "Dennis was throwing out the trash the other day..." Now, come on, Dave. Your first meeting was in the recent past, so you should be able to remember what you said to each other. :)
I don't remember what I said exactly Laverne,,but she said "I don't drink coffee, but I will have a coke" :-)
Dave,could your 'sweetheart' possibly be a VT member and if so is that why you are keeping her a secret? I have an enquiring mind Lol!
"You can't be a local with an accent like that!"
So, Dave--How does she feel about trucks?
1. To best friend after a minor misunderstanding: "Wanna fight?" When the rukcus subsided, we were both almost expelled from primary school! 2. To my future wife, who was wearing a gold chain and a large pendant: "Lovely chain". She replied: I won it at the Olympics!" (August, 1973)
Great first conversation, Anil. I like her sense of humor.
=@Dorrisse and Jessie, she's not a vt'er but is a traveler and she loves trucks, her dad is a trucker, and also my Pastor!
I was with a group of people, he just came and sat down. Fortunately, we shared the same sense of humor, or he might have taken it wrong: "Who are you and why are you here?" (Context is everything.)
If it was a million years ago for Keti, it must have been three million years ago for me! In general I would guess that my first word was, "Hi!" Said with a smile. Larry, After all this time? I am so sorry to read it.
Linda, O Queen of San Diego, I am sad I had to write it. :-(
@ Dave.....y'all had better make sure the invites are in the post...or me & Rixie will come beat you up!!!
It was NYE. He had previously dated my sister which ended acrimoniously, his father had recently passed away. I said hello and he gave me the filthiest stink eye ever. I tried not to take it personally. Several years later we both attended dinner with a bunch of couples who spent the entire night discussing wedding photographers. As the only single people there the topic didnt interest us and bonded over a drink and discussions about wilderness first aid.
At Bets a..... PROMISE!!!!
Though I'm not married (yet), I've been dating someone off and on for over a year. We met at an event involving a dance party and the first thing he said to me was "do you want to dance?" He was the first and last person I danced with that night (and many times in between too).
She said to me: "Straighten your back and salute". She was, at one point, my commander in the army. Martin
@Martin_S=I'm sure she still is ;-)
Probably something like Goo Goo Gaa Gaa!! I met him when I was about 2!
Anil, you are right of course, she still is my commander, but at least I do not have to salute today ^O^ Martin
It's important to establish rank right from the beginning. :)
True! But somewhere along the line, the 'weaker sex' becomes the 'stronger sex'!
>>>But somewhere along the line, the 'weaker sex' becomes the 'stronger sex'! Anil, I would say it's more of the case that the "weaker sex" has always been stronger and that, "somewhere along the line the "stronger sex" finally realized it. :-)
In this vid, the member of the "weaker sex" gives a major verbal beating to the member of the "stronger sex" after he taunts her for being a woman who wants a "man's job". youtube.com/watch?v=Xst0VHvw...
Amelie, I can't watch videos on my computer, but I wish I could see that one.
