Can I ask what were your immediate thoughts when you saw your husband/wife or partner for the very first time?


Eglantine21 Fri 24-Apr-20 20:07:22

What a geek!

CherryCezzy Fri 24-Apr-20 20:14:55

Dupe my friend (oops).😱😂

tanith Fri 24-Apr-20 20:44:19

What the hell is he wearing sunglasses for? It was dark 🤣

Grannybags Fri 24-Apr-20 20:47:12

I don't really remember - it certainly wasn't love at first sight!

janeainsworth Fri 24-Apr-20 20:48:43

Ooh he looks nice grin
We were both going out with someone else at the time.

Pantglas2 Fri 24-Apr-20 20:51:43

He had short hair due to being in the army (70s) and everyone else had long hair... I thought Phwoar then and nothing’s changed....😋

You've had slightly too much to drink!!

Artdecogran Fri 24-Apr-20 20:56:52

Sexy, quiet and enigmatic. We married within 10 weeks of our first meeting and stayed together for 40 years.

Callistemon Fri 24-Apr-20 21:01:49

"I'm going to marry him."

Strange, because I was determined to dislike him before I met him.

Callistemon Fri 24-Apr-20 21:03:03

I did have another boyfriend at the time too, janeainsworth

I wonder how he is now hmm

janeainsworth Fri 24-Apr-20 21:05:14

Je ne regrette rien Callistemongrin

Callistemon Fri 24-Apr-20 21:07:03

Moi non plus janea

Although he is snoring in his chair at the moment.

I wonder ......

He was good looking.

Calendargirl Fri 24-Apr-20 21:21:14

Thought he was nice looking.

Still do.

JuliaM Fri 24-Apr-20 21:24:37

Wow! He looks fit, nice muscles in all the right places!
He was dancing with someone else at the time, but spotted me as he knew my Cousin and came over to say hi!
We were engaged 6weeks later, married in the February of the following year, and have now been together with two daughters of our own for just over 34 years.

Err, go away please, I’m not interested.

fevertree Fri 24-Apr-20 21:34:25

I was fascinated because he was so different from me.

MissAdventure Fri 24-Apr-20 21:35:42

How intriguing...

JoyBloggs Fri 24-Apr-20 21:39:29

Mmm, like the look of you...

That was over fifty years ago and we're still together.

Anniebach Fri 24-Apr-20 21:45:58

Was in the scout hut with my cubs, went into the store room, tripped over a rope , he grabbed me,gorgeous blue eyes .

SueDonim Fri 24-Apr-20 21:49:25

‘Ho, yes! I’m going to marry you.’ That was over 48yrs ago. I think he’s a keeper. grin

Hetty58 Fri 24-Apr-20 21:50:19

Both husbands, I thought 'very handsome, very interesting' - it was lust at first sight.

Other relationships were friends or work colleagues for a while, showed an interest, then slowly 'became' interesting.

Why does your question assume only one partner? Really?

MissAdventure Fri 24-Apr-20 21:52:26

Because if I'd suggested multiple partners, the perpetually outraged would have been.. well.. outraged.
