Do Tell: How Did Your Parents Meet?

Whether they were set up by a mettlesome friend or collided at what they'd later call a "kegger," the story of how your parents met is unexpectedly endearing. Hearing how they once fidgeted on the shag carpet of a first date is as weird as it is comforting. So, tell us, how did yours go from strangers to mom and dad?

My parents met each other on the engagement party of their brother and sister! So we have a double family! Since my mother's brother is married to my dad's sister. It's pretty cool. They met when they were only 15, they are 52 now and still together, it's so lovely.

They met in college. My mom was friends with my dad's brother. When mom and friends went out, my dad started tagging along.. he had his brother as an excuse. LOL

LOL @ comment 34! mom and dad were classmates at a finance class back in college but mom didn't really notice dad at first.. but dad noticed her even if they were seated far apart.. then one day, mom was on the same bus *going home back to the countryside for the summer* with dad *road trip w/ friends* and he boldly grabbed the empty seat beside her and they started from there! :) dad then became mom's tutor on that shared finance subject since he was a math nerd and mom had trouble with numbers.. ;)

I love reading all of these cool stories . . . so unique! My mom's a nurse, my dad was working his way through college as the hospital janitor. She called him to clean up a bed pan and some kid who vomited and he asked her out after . . . ah, romance!

My parents actually meet on their first day of school when they were six years old. They were in the same class for the next 8 years, and were friends and hanging around with the same people. They never dated during this time, and went out into the world after high school as an au pair and exchange student. But when they were in their twenties they meet up with a bunch of other friends playing badminton, and feel in love... And now they have been married for 35 years! Its funny hearing about their childhood, because they knew a lot of the same people. So same situations, but different perception of things that happened.

this is a great post! some lovely stories.my mum threw and new years party and invited a guy she liked... he never showed. when she asked where he was someone told her he was at my dad's house. to which she replied "who the hell is ****".a year on, her and a group of friends went to watch a rugby match at murrayfield, there was a huge hokey kokey outside the grounds, they literally bumped into one and other, and began talking. they've now been married for nearly 40 years.
