Anyone have any cute stories from mom and dad about the day they met?

I love my parents story:

Mom was walking on campus, and my dad was walking with his roommate, who grew up with my mom.

Well, dad saw mom, and of course my dad asked his roomie all about this beautiful gal he just saw.

He called her later that night, and said, "Hey, this is , Dad's Name- Do you know who I am? Have you seen me play any basketball games yet?" {He was on the team at their college which was a pretty big deal at Indiana.}


She goes, "No, I've never heard of you!" :lol: (Though she had, she was just playing it cool of course)




I never heard them fight a day in my life, they had 6 kids together, and laughed and joked around and were always in love with each other.

My parents met at work, my mom worked for a travel agency and my dad was a a salesman at a business a few doors down in a strip mall. My dad at the time was married and had just lost a child, his first marriage was pretty much over and my Parents had an affair. When I was born my dad had gone back to his wife because they had three kids together. It didny work out though, and when I was one my parents got married.
My parents fight all the time, but that is the way they like it. My dad's first wife shut down and didnt talk about anything.
They will celebrate their 30th wedding anniversary in November, they actually got married on Friday the 13th because my dad had tickets to the Apple Cup tr next day. Lol

I think my parents met at the Vets.
it all started with sniffing each others butts and progressed from there.

My folks grew up together. My dad was one of the privileged few who owned a car in the 1920s. He called his car the "Mayflower" and apparently made it known that 'they all come across in the Mayflower.' Their names are carved in some rock or tree or something and it seems that is legendary in the county where they grew up. (So she is probably the only one who actually did....come across in the Mayflower.) Someone mentions it every time they find out I am their daughter. My mother would have been 100 this year and my father 102.

My parents were highschool sweet hearts. However me and my husband met when he moved in next door because of the navy sent him there. My dad hated my current boyfriend. He would go out every day and talk to my hubby and asked when he was going to take me out. My hubby would tell him I had a boyfriend( hubby and I were friends since we were neighbors) Then I broke up with that boyfriend . My dad went next door told my hubby that I broke up with that asshole (his words) and hubby called me that night to take me to dinner. Hubby says he did it to get my dad off his case but I said you did not even wait 24 hours so you must have been interested. We have been together ever since. We will have our 25 anniversary in March

A warm place with no memory.
I was told that they met at a USO dance. Dad first saw her when her back was turned. He said to his buddy "see that gal over there? I'm going to marry her some day". Long red hair and gams to die for.
He was just out of the Army, an 8th grade dropout, and broke. She was the daughter of a Chicago banker. She left the good life to marry him and move into a rented school house with no plumbing.
18 years and 8 kids later it kinda went south. Lots of stress and money problems. Yeah they argued a lot toward the end. Dad keeled over at 54.

My mom is one of 7 sisters. Apparently my dad was dating one of my moms sisters but when he picked her up for a date at the house he got a look at my mom and it was love at first sight!

Over the years the details of that story had changed a bit, one version had my Dad dating my Aunt Judy, another said he was dating my Aunt Donna at the time. Well, the last time I was in California my mom was ill and my dad came to visit at the hospital (They're divorced) so during the endless hours waiting I decided to ask my dad about that.

I told my dad the story as I knew it and asked him which one he was dating at the time and he replied "Uh, well, actually I was dating both of them". All I could do was laugh and shake my dad's hand!

Dad! You da' MAN! :lol:

I got another story about how my Grandma and Grandpa met, wanna' hear it? Ok!

My Grandfather Donald (On my mothers side) was a jock in H.S. but was real shy. Well he liked this one girl Elizabeth but was too shy to talk to her. His friends knew he had a crush on her but were tired of waiting for him to "make his move" or whatever you did in 1934. So one day after school they all drove over to her house, his friends pushed him out on to the front lawn, took his shoes and told him that he'd get em back after he talked to her! It worked obviously! :lol:

My Pop was a race car driver. He came rumbling by a park when he spotted a beauty that looked like Shirley Mclaine. He stopped his car and wanted to make conversation with her. She told him she could drive his car better then he could. He was like, "no way", then she got in, fired it up and shifted in to first.

The rest is history.

My mom's cousin had an acquaintance that really liked her a lot, but left her cold. He kept asking her out until she told him she would go with him once if he brought along a date for her cousin (My mom) The other guy he brought was my father. They all met at the school where both my father and mother were taking classes (My father was on the GI bill at the time) and my mom and my dad hit it off right away. The four of them went dancing and going places all night long, winding up at my father's house at 8:00am the next morning where they had a pancake breakfast. Then my parents went to her house (my dad escorting her home, it was on the same trolley line as his place) where he made a long good bye speech that he couldn't go with her anymore because he was too broke.
they wound up getting married 5 months later on New Years eve. They were married 53 years before he died. They kept up the relation that they were each other's dream the whole time. Which I found kind of squicky when I was in high school.

My mother was from Neenah, Wisconsin and my father was from Rocky Mount, North Carolina. During WWII, my father was in the Navy stationed in Boston, Mass for a short while. My mother was in Boston visiting with her Aunt. They met walking down the street after bumping into each other. The rest is history...
