After reading @Blazer 's thread about reuniting with his high school sweetheart, I thought we could use a thread filled with the cute stories about how you met your partner.
I met my wife Mia when she was 14 and I was 17. She has just moved to Arizona from New York. Her sister was in my grade, and a couple of the girls in my very close group of friends adopted the two new sisters on their first day at school. For Mia and I, it was love at first sight. She was the most adorable thing I'd ever seen.
She was also too young and unbelievably shy. But we spent the next two years very slowly becoming great friends who would flirt, and stare, and geek out for hours about Harry Potter, but never anything more.
Then I graduated and moved to Oregon. Her family moved to New York. Two years later, we randomly bumped into each other at a New Years's celebration. We've been inseparable ever since. We dated for five years, and now we've been married for seven. Best of friends. Still complete geeks. Couldn't be happier.
How about you?
The local apartment complexes in the 1970's had clubs. Usually a DJ played dance music and they sold beer. One of them I frequented was called the Barbary Coast. You entered and went down stairs to the right and there was a bar and rail where single guys lined up waiting for single girls to show up. I had a spot on the rail near the stairs. My future wife came in with a friend. When she reached the bottom of the stairs, I asked if she wanted to dance. She said yes. Later she told me I looked like a bad boy and that was what she was looking for. I guess it was the beard and long hair. We danced, talked and I asked her if she liked motorcycles. She asked why. I said there were flat track races in the Astrodome the coming weekend and I would like to take her. She said yes. I called her the next day and asked her to dinner. She said yes to that. We've been together ever since.

Long hair, beard, motorcycles...I hate to break it to you, you might have actually been a "bad boy".
