Good story John.
I met mine at a SAMA Conference (Student Aviation Management Association) that was held this April at UND. She is also a member on jetcareers here, but I'll let her chime in.
She sat behind me for two speakers at the conference. She had to be there for a class, I was there because I had nothing else to do. The story: A friend of mine came by and sat right behind me to talk for a quick moment. Perfect, this gave a chance to look in her direction without making it obvious I was checking her out. Found out later it was pretty obvious. After the conference ended I walked out behind her to the parking lot. Here was my chance to say something, but of course I chickened out. The words just wouldn't come out and I thought I had blown it. Turns out I didn't.
Anyone else believe that "some things are meant to be." Well, I get home from a workout and my roommate says lets go to a concert at the bar. We went and it couldn't have been better. The first person I see we walk into the bar is her, and she is giving me the eye. We flirted from a distance for an hour or so, I didn't want to go near her because she was with a guy. I drank some courage water and was about to go ask her to dance, but she ended coming over to me first. Turns out the guy was just a friend which was great news for me. We danced for the rest of the night and have been together ever since.
Great thing about this girl, she has a great personality and we can talk about flying. She has her private pilot certificate and we're both in the same commercial instrument course. Its been a great couple months and I am looking forward the the future. She doesn't post to much, so she needs some encouragement to post her side of the story!
