    "I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.

    In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."

    Man, I left out the spicy bits, but since some of you are including them...

    The first night that we re-met, he got drunk, we shared the stories of our lives, and we ended up playing DDR and dancing nekkid. Not a euphemism there. Well, he got nekkid, I was in my undies. There were other friends about. He hates when I bring that night up, but it really set the stage for our relationship in so many ways, mostly how much FUN it was.

    Finding a text message on my phone late that night (we were up till 5AM or later, chatting, and went on our first date for lunch that same day) that he'd sent before getting drunk asking me if I wanted to go out sometime was the best feeling.

    My brother was getting married, so he put me in his room in his flat, where I hung out with his flatmates for the weekend. She was one of them....
    Disclaimer: I eat 'meat and vegetables' ala Primal, although I don't agree with the carb curve. I like Perfect Health Diet and WAPF Lactofermentation a lot.

    We're both terminal nerds, and met on IRC playing VtM (if you don't know what those TLAs mean, you're not nerdy enough).
    He's ten years younger than I, from a low-income family in the south-eastern U.S. I'm from a middle-income family in small-town Prairies Canada. He's black, I'm white. Somehow, we've made it work for over 7 years of marriage!

    In the words of Hugh Grant - Love is...all around. I've decided that tomorrow I'm going to ask some people I work with how they met their SOs. I think some of them will have good stories too.

    I'm not with this one anymore, but it was kind of neat how we met. We started out on Yahoo Personals- he read my ad and contacted me. We communicated via email and later on the phone a little. He found out where I worked (the home electronics department of a local department store) and he came in and didn't identify himself (I didn't know what he looked like at this point) and asked me to help him find a movie. I helped him, and he bought "The Princess Bride" which he then proceeded to give to me and introduce himself.
