I first met my wife while in college. I was dating a crazy German exchange student and we went out that night to a black light party b/c we were so cool. I first saw her and I was done. I danced with her for what seemed like hours (my girlfriend was so pissed but at that point I didn't care). We didn't see each other for a few months after that and life went on.
I went on a quick training assignment (30 days) for the Army and when I got back I told my roommate, "This is my last semester in college. No girlfriends just good times, partying and class". Well we went out and the first bar we went to my future wife was bartending. I had the worst pick-up line ever. I was hammered but had to speak to her (The German had finally went home). I walked up to her and said, "I've been looking for you". Creepy, yes. Weird, even more so but it worked. She looked at me with this odd expression and started laughing. We talked for about 15 minutes afterwards and she fed me free beer all night. We went out the next night and she moved in on our 2nd date (Her parents were in town & her apartment was tiny). We married 8 months later (to the day of our first date) and next month we celebrate 7 years of marriage and have 2 beautiful, healthy primal kids.
Again the pick-up line was ridiculous (That was the only l time I ever used one) but sometimes a little ridiculousness is all you need.
