#GBE2 - How We Met

picture prompt - GBE2

Does anyone remember Hands Across America Day? On May 25, 1986, Americans from New York to California held hands in an attempt to form an unbroken human chain across the country. Although the link broke in the desert, my husband and I formed our own bond, and we're still hitched over twenty-five years later.

Here's how we met:

Martin, an Orthodox Jew started a photo dating service and threw extravagant parties complete with farm animals in hotel ballrooms and his wife hanging from a cooking skewer--anything for a laugh.

Singles submitted photographs then chose dates from his dining room table. On my first visit to Martin's home, a cute guy sat across from me, so I boldly slid my picture in front of him.

Shortly after that, Martin spoke to this young man then asked me in private if I wanted to go out with him. When I gave a strong, "Yes," he opened the door and immediately embarrassed me by sharing my answer. But that's okay, Handsome called, we went out, and here we are old but still together.

So I'm assuming there were no cute wombats there?

Great story, proves that love at first sight really does happen.

I love that story! not the usual "how we met" story. It was obviously love at first sight...congratulations on 25 years of marriage! :)

Thanks for the comments. I don't know about love at first time, but I will admit to lust at first sight.

Wow! It had to be meant to be for both of you to happen on that "in house" dating service and be there the same day. Very nice!!

Wow! So nice. Congratulations!

How I wish I could also find the love of my life as well.

I remember Hands Across America day - I brought my young son to "our" assigned spot, in Los Angeles, and it was very cool knowing my stepsister in Pennsylvania was joining the chain at the other end of the country.
