This is a comment by Adam and Brian B Baker on the post “She’s the One“.
Adam and Brian talk about how they first met their wives and the moment they knew she was “the one”. What stories do you have?
I met my wife in culinary school. Each of us thought the other was pretty odd at first, and she had to hit me over the head with a hammer to get my attention at first, as I was completely oblivious. I never had a moment when I just knew she was the one, we just came to it gradually. Looking back I think it was our third date. We went on a ferry ride, (I later proposed on that same ferry route) locked the keys in her car, got pulled over, and still had a great time. Symbolizes all the struggles we’ve had, and the fact that we still hold hands, still steal kisses at stoplights, still feel the thrill of romance ten years later.

She was my manager at a video store, I asked her out a couple times and she was too busy, but I was persistent. Then a movie that everyone had wanted to see was finally coming to video and everyone was coming to my house to watch. Everyone else bailed on showing up, I think because they knew how big my crush was.
Fast forward six months. I had to move to another state and she followed a month later, then I screwed up and lost my job and she was very upset, but we had an apartment together and she let me stay and eventually forgave me for losing my job. I then got a better job than the one I’d had and we’ve been together 15 year, married thirteen with two awesome kids!
