2. "We met at a no pants party. Yup, neither of us wearing pants. 7 years later, we are still together." - Rebecca

3. "I met my wife because I farted. True story. I'm standing in line at a coffee shop and letting pass some serious silent-but-deadlies. I was on a pretty hefty raw broccoli kick at the time, after reading it may be good for the old hairline. Anyway, I didn't notice, but right behind me is this beautiful girl, who turns and asks me "if I smell that?" I pretend to sniff the air and then point to someone a few paces ahead of us. Turns out we spent the rest of the afternoon together and we just celebrated our 3rd wedding anniversary. To this day I never told her that the fart was, indeed, mine." - Simon

Ironically she told me she only felt an attraction to me so quickly due to the meow, seriously, how does that make any sense? Silly woman." - Stuart
