Strategies That Work

Sarah and I met two ways. The first time we met, it was at the nursery at University Hospital in Cleveland. She was visiting her new nephew and I was visiting my new niece -- both recent graduates of the birthing program there. We chatted but I went off to visit my sister and she her sister-in-law and we somehow missed connecting again that day.

Then, about three months later, we met at a bar. So we have both stories -- the cute one and the dissipated one!

We both suffered from that "don't I know you from somewhere" feeling, but were both too embarrassed to use such an obvious pick-up line. Anyway, we started dating the very next day. 28 days later we were engaged. Six months later, married. My strategy: don't give Sarah time to think that she may be making a mistake.
