21 Hopeful ‘How We Met’ Tales To Read When You Feel Like Giving Up

13. Pharmaceutical Flirting

He was a manager that was just transferred to my location. We worked for a pharmacy. I thought he was beautiful, but after some investigation I found out he had a lady friend. I didn’t talk to him much after that. Since I was having some trouble with work, I quit and got a job at a retirement home. That lasted for about 4 months (not because of the residents). I hated leaving those sweet people, but the employees were shady and abusive. My old boss called and asked me to come back to work at the pharmacy. That beautiful manager was still there! And he was single! After about a week of working together, lots of cautious flirtation (I was not a manager), and nice warm sensations everywhere, I wanted to go out with him. At this point, I hadn’t asked any guys out, but I had a feeling this one was too good to get away. Since he was a manager, he didn’t want to ask me out, only to find out the feeling wasn’t mutual, and get fired.

After working alone in the stockroom for about an hour one day, I said bye and clocked out. I went out the door, threw my stuff in the car, and ran back inside. I didn’t stop, didn’t slow down, didn’t start analyzing. He was on the very top shelf, arranging boxes of toilet paper. I said, “I am pretty sure we like each other, so let’s go out sometime”. He said yes, and that’s history. We have been together 8 years, married for 5.

14. The Chemistry Was Indeed Organic

I was assigned as her tutor for organic chemistry. Our first hour long session went as normal. At the end of it, I just continued the conversation, and she didn’t seem to mind staying. We moved to other topics such as classes, sports, favorite music, etc. After a bit I looked down and noticed that another hour had passed. A few weeks later I finally had the guts to ask her to the school dance.

And yes, I got a ton of tutor jokes from my family members. “I bet you two had a lot of chemistry, didn’t you?”

15. Will You Be Mine?

Saw her, found out who she was and what her name was through a friend, started chatting/texting, found out we had a lot in common. Eventually asked her to go on a date with me to a museum (ulster folk and transport to be specific, its unreal). The night before the date I was out for a friend’s birthday, asked her to come along to the bar we were going to. Met her there, got acquainted, couldn’t stop looking at her, kissed her before we went home. Went on that date the next day, it was amazing, asked her to be mine a few days later. 3 years together this month, she’s the one!
