My parents...well, that's a story.

My parents both worked for a now defunct phone company in different parts of NYS. My Dad worked near NYC, my Mom worked near Albany. They had a person who went between both locations for repairs, etc, who said they should meet and gave my Dad my Mom's number. He called her and they talked on the phone. Eventually, she jokingly said he should come up to visit some time. Well, he did. And they hit it off. Less than a year later they were married. 32.5 years later, they still are.

Interesting caveat to that story - my Mom was technically still married to her first husband when she met my Dad. They hadn't gotten divorced because, they just never got around to it. Her first husband turned out to be gay, which he discovered very soon after he married my Mom. I know that whole situation (my Mom still being married to her first husband when my Dad got engaged to her) made my Grandparents go crazy.

They got divorced (thankfully) so I don't think it matters.

They met in the 80s, my dad was at a restaurant at a table with his friends and my mom was a waitress. My dad was 24 and my mom was 17 or 18 when they met.

High school sweethearts. I guess my mom used to do my dad's homework lol and then they just hit it off. They've been together for over 25 years now.

My dad was a poor southern Chinese guy on vacation in Shanghai. One day he went shopping for groceries and he didn't have enough money and there my mom swooped in to help pay for his things. Yeah, not the most romantic of meetings.


That's actually really romantic

They met through phonedating (when that used to be a thing). They talked over the phone and she told him that if he really is a cop he could find here information through their database. A day later he called here actual phonenumber and they set up a date.
