Wives of Faith is having a MilSpouses Rock! Blog Carnival all week in celebration of Military Spouse Appreciation Day on May 7. If you would like to participate, see her link here.
Here is my story of how my husband and I met.
I was working for a loan company and being so close to a military base, we got a lot of military applicants. The guys that I worked with usually gave the applications of the single military guys to me. When my husbands came through, I didn’t start on it, but I did finish his application up and he flirted with me on the phone the entire time. The guys I worked with were joking, saying he would be my soul mate. When he did come in, he stepped up right away to shake my hand and introduce himself. I hadn’t expected anything, but he was hot!! He flirted with me while I closed his loan, but then he left. My co-worker then told me that I should call him. I wasn’t about to do that though. While we were sitting there talking about it though, he called the office and asked for my number! We went out on our first date a couple weeks later.
He didn’t overly impress me at first. I thought he was kind of an ass (he still is, it’s in his nature, he just isn’t to me). I gave him a shot though and worked my way through his complicated layers and found a true sweetheart of a man (he would kill me if he knew I said that). It’s funny cause I knew so much about him before we went out. I knew his income, his credit score, what kind of debt he had, and knew he had no kids, just cause I did part of his loan application. I’ve teased him and told him if his credit would have been bad, I never would have gone out with him!
