Darcie walked in to the Gap, where I was a manager, shopping for her boyfriend. I told her, "You need to get rid of that zero & get yourself a hero."

She did.

Four months later I proposed to her at the June 17th, 2000 Allman Brothers show & she said yes. I have no regrets & can never see myself without her.

I knew I had found the one for me because she told me so

She must have been right because we are still together after 29 years (27 married)

I've been married to the same guy for 32 years as well and, frankly, I'd rather be alone at this point. But I'm too lazy to deal with it. I keep thinking that maybe eventually the things we liked about each other will stop being obscured by stressful daily life and it could be fun again.

LaPeche what was it that drew you to him?


with my ex, i fell because we never really got on each others nerves and the sex was great. it was pretty much like, ok, your cool, i'll hang with ya for awhile, and then eventually one day i looked at him and realized OH HELL, i done gone and stepped in a big steaming pile of LOVE. I know now that feeling that way shoulda been a big RED FLAG, because i felt like i was a victim of love (oooh sorry BOBO for the Eagles reference)...... Now i know that when you find love it should make you feel like you are rising, not falling!

Me personally i have a list of 15 things that must be in place for me to consider allowing myself to love someone romantically. Only one person has met that ENTIRE LIST. But in the beginning there has to be that ZAP - KAPOW of bliss when you are with them when you realize that it might be the right person.

what was it?

It was love at first sight. Ten years and many experiences later I decided maybe it was just gas. But I do believe in 'the one' and haven't given up hope.

I walked into art class, looked across the room and I saw Donna for the first time and said to myself she's mine. Now I don't what has made her stay. I've often told her she must crazy or stupid after putting with my **** for so long. It's been 21 years and a helluva ride.

when you're ready to settle down, just round up everybody you ever slept with, line them up, and pick one.

pretty simple

I met hubby on a blind date. I was living in a walk up apartment building at the time. I was at the door waiting for him to come up the stairs and as he turned the landing I saw him and thought....hmmm....he's cute. We went out to dinner and as we were talking I said to myself, "self, he's a keeper" 10 years later, he's still a keeper and my best friend!!
Im truly blessed and I really belief it was destiny and he thinks so too.

So blind dates do work out, contrary to popular belief!!

15... wow, thats a lot...

I don't have that many, but one of the most important would be someone who has the ability to give selflessly...

Yes they do because my wife must be blind. To this day people wonder "how did she end up w/ him". She has always been to pretty for me.

Unfortunately, I know the feeling as well. But we're TRYING to make it work. I have to give Virgil props though. He puts up with my Gregg infatuation, and even jokes about it, so he can't be all that bad. LOL!! And he lets me get my live show fix, which means road trips, usually plane trips, for us since we're out in the desert. Like I said, he can't be all that bad then. But jealousy, on his part, is a major problem at this point.

A belated Happy Birthday to you Linnie.

Well I guess the thing that drew me to him was that I had not met anyone like him, he was different from anyone I knew and I guess he recognized that in me as well.

My 29th anniversary is coming up this October and it does not seem that long ago at all, I guess that in and of itself says something. Sometimes it feels like it was just yesterday when we met. I think another sign is that you are as protective of them as they are of you. In other words, their hurt is youíre hurt, their joy is your joy, when they have been wronged then so have you been wronged. I donít think it is a thing but a lot of little and big things. You can see yourself growing old with this person when you are young. Growing old together can be a beautiful and challenging experience. I do know that if something were to happen to him there could never be another for me. That may be extreme for some but for me I know there is no other. I think you have to be honest about your intentions, and why you are drawn to a person. If it is because of money, fortune, fame and what that person can do for you on a material and/or social level then it will never work out because you got in to it for the wrong reason. Relationships can be easy or hard, filled with ups and downs, scrapes and bruises, joy and hurt but when you can both come out of it stronger then you were when you first got in it then I would say youíll make it.

To all above who are tired of their spouses but are trying to make it work...Good Luck and I mean that honestly.

I am giving up, we're headed towards the big D and even though it's amicable and all, it still isn't pleasant and certainly nothing I EVER thought I'd be doing. Married 17 years, thought it was forever. Life still happens, we trudge forward.

I was singing in the church choir, he came to visit our church. We had grown up together until we were about 11 or 12 but hadn't seen each other in years. I asked the girl next to me who he was, couldn't believe it was the same guy. (He growed up good as they say). We had 1 date and I told my Mom when I got home I was going to marry him. He didn't call me back for 6 months. He showed up on my door step, we were inseparable for the next 6 months. Got married on my parents anniversary. It will be 32 years this December. I knew as soon as he walked in the door of church that morning. He didn't...I did. Says now he sure is glad I knew! He is my best friend in the world. I was 17, he was 21. When you marry young one of two things happens, you grow together or you grow apart. I was fortunate in that we grew together. Can't imagine my life without him!!

1st of all,timing had something to do with it.If I had met my wife a year earlier,I never would have even dated her.Not because she was different,but because I had changed a lot in that year.

I don't think I can say it was one thing,but the combination of things that kept adding up.Mostly that she was very kind and caring to EVERYBODY.Plenty of women had been that way to me,but I didn't care for the way they treated others.Her love of children was also big to me.Also her trusting ways and the total lack of jealousy when it came to my female friends.She may not be my physical type(I prefer armpit girls,that's where the hair ends and the legs begin,and she's average height with short curly hair),but that never really mattered to me.After 18 years I don't have much to complain about.

And my biological clock was ticking
