    He plays banjo and I play fiddle. We met at a music session and when he asked me out, that was the best first date ever! We barely ate our food, we were talking and laughing so much. Four months later he moved in (single, homeless banjo player- he fit every stereotype) and now we've been together 7 years. I still adore him!

This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.

            Background: Hubby is from Spokane, WA, I lived all over Washington state and Oregon for about 9 years in my 20s. I moved back to Indiana after I got a divorce.

            In Indiana, I went to college dragging my two young children with me, and worked hard on myself. I did not want a repeat of the first marriage debacle. DH started teaching at my college when I was a senior and we met on the day his then wife left him. Nothing happened for a couple of months until I and some other students introduced ourselves to him in the cafeteria. It was a small college and he was teaching in our major. Another month went by until he came to the library where he knew I would be working on a weekend, claimed to be there doing research, and supposedly needed my help. We both started being where we knew the other person would be. As we started talking, we found we had a lot in common, finished each others sentences, noticed the same things about any given situation, etc.... I honestly thought I would never meet someone who saw the world in the same skewed way I did.

            Because it was a small college, we had to hide our romance from everyone. He couldn't lose his job as I had never taken a class with him and I was not some naive 18 year old he was taking advantage of, but we had to worry about reputations and all that rot.

            After his ex stopped yanking him around, we got married and are still married despite the dire prophesies of my wonderful family of origin. On our wedding invitation there was a poem and part of it was "You know the song of my heart and sing it to me when I have forgotten it...." This is still true today.

              Beautiful. Not sure whether to smile or cry!

                  As a public school teacher, I have summers off from work, so one year I decided to spend 2 months in Poland. The plan was to take a few weeks of language class in Krakow, then travel solo through the countryside for a few more weeks relying on my newly acquired Polish skills.

                  While in the language class, I became instant BFF with this guy from Italy who was also taking Polish classes in preparation for his upcoming move to Krakow. At the end of his 2 weeks in Krakow, he signed a lease on an apartment, and returned to Italy for a month to pack and tie up loose ends.

                  On the surface he seemed to be my polar opposite, but we were soulmates from the first conversation. When we parted ways after our language class ended, we emailed eachother about 20 times a day, and I extended my trip to visit him in Italy for 2 weeks.

                  When I returned to the States, I was heartbroken at the thought of never seeing him again...and then I got a message that when he showed up to his new apartment in Krakow, there was a huge gaping hole in the ceiling from some construction work, and it was uninhabitable. We took this as a sign, and I convinced him to come to NY instead of finding another apartment there.

                  He arrived on a 3 month tourist visa, it was heaven, and towards the end of his trip, we had to choose between:
                  1) him returning to Europe and never seeing each other again
                  2) getting married

                  So we got married.

                    I like to race cars on the weekends, mostly autocross (basically a low speed time trial) and some drag racing. I was at one of my usual autocross venues with my 2011 Subaru STI and she came to watch/ride with a mutual friend. My friend's wife asked me if she (gf) could ride with me on one of my runs. I had a passenger lined up for my first run, but I told her she could ride later.

                    As I staged for my first run, the guy who was supposed to ride along was nowhere to be found. I called my friend and had him send her down. We actually introduced ourselves as she was getting into my car and putting a helmet on. The first thing she said to me (other than maybe her name) was "I don't normally get into cars with strange men."

                    The lap with her was, at the time, the fastest lap I had ever put down at that track. We chatted the rest of the day and went out for our first date (which began my sushi addiction) the following Friday.
                    I wish I liked to eat liver.

                      First saw heR at a large conference in India- I an american and she a german-but we never spoke. According to tradition, women were seated on one side and men on the other, with about 7,000 people in attendance. We both happened to attend a conference in Michigan a little later and were formally introduced. Many letters and phone bills later, I flew to Germany and as per tradition asked her father for her hand. After working thru the INS fiasco she resigned her position, flew to the U.S.,and lived at my parents house for a week till we married.

                        I moved into the apartment across the hall from his. It was a small, garden-style apartment...old with very narrow hallways. My couch couldn't fit through my door. I knocked on his door to see if we could angle it in through his door and push it into my apartment. Who would have thought that the man answering the door would turn out to be the love of my live?

                            Met our first day of college as friends. He was a womanizing jerk but we were friends for years both moved around a bit. about 9 years after meeting we both moved to the same city within a few weeks of each other. We started hanging out and fell in love. Got married after several years and have been married 14 years.

                            My parents love story has always intrigued me. In the 1940's they were both engaged to other people. My father was friends with my mother's oldest brother. The three couples went out for an evening and my mother says as soon as she saw my father her first thought was "that is the man I am going to marry." They both ended their engagements and started dating. They dated through WWII and the Korean conflict. He came home from the war and they were married. When she died at age 80 they were together for about 55 years if I recall correctly.

                                We were matched on eHarnony, Valentines Day 3 years ago. We emailed a few times, talked on the phone for 3 hours and met 3 days later, talking for 7 hours straight. Moved in together 4 months later and I don't see us ever being apart.

                                Amazing what happens when you stop making the same stupid things and take a chance on something you don't think you want. You sometimes get even better than what you thought you've been wanting all along.
