My parents bought a convienent store of my FH's parents. I went with my parents the day they signed the final papers to buy the store. I didn't know it at the time but my FH was there. He come in, but went to the back (the game room) while I was talking with his dad and sister. He said that he seen me (but I of course didn't see him) and thought that I was the most beautiful woman he had ever laid eyes one. He had to go away for about 8 months. While he was gone he would talk to his dad and sister (that I talked to on a daily basis) and would asked them question about me. Things like is she single? Is she dating anyone? things of that sort. I did ask his sister if he was telling the truth and she said Yes he did ask me those question and I didn't think nothing about it..lol Then my FH's dad was building some Apartments, & houses in the back of the store. He talked my dad into buying all of them. I had recently gotten a divoce and was going through some really hard times. My parents gave one of the houses behind the store to me. I had three kids and was in the process of fighting for custody of my step son. 8 months went by and FH was back in town. I met him through a girl from work. He was also building the house that was 10 feet away from mine. He would come to the store everyday sit at the counter and eat his lunch. While I would be on my computer doing business stuff. I could feel him staring at me but when I would look up he would look away quickly. The girl that worked for me also worked for his family since they built the store. So she knew him very well and had a VERY big crush on him (she was much younger then him and he wasn't interested) Anyway. We all went out for drinks one night and he come to our table said hello to all the ladies but me. I was like WHAT??? he stares at me everyday but can't even say hello. REALLY?? SO I took the first step. I walked to the ladies room but on the way back I stopped to ask him if his dad had sold the house they had just built beside me. He made a funny remark (lied) I believed him, and started to walk away. He grabbed my arm, smiled really big and said, sorry I was just kidding, let me buy you a drink that was just mean. So we talked for a few and I was going to go back to my table. He asked me to save a slow dance for him. So I did. The next one that come on, he come over to the table held his hand out and it was over after that. WE SOOOO clicked that night. I wouldn't date him after that because he was still officially married (just got out of a relationship where someone had lied to me about there seperation) So I didn't want to get into that again. He was very persistant on that part. Come in every single day to ask me out. Finally on Valentines day, he come in to see if I wanted to go for a drink. I told him I had a date. He said "he isn't going to show up" I was like YEs he is. He said "ok then, if he doesn't will you go out with me?" I said Yeah sure..but he is going to show." Well 9:00 we closed the store and he really didn't show up. So I was like oh well. OK lets go. After that date, he had me!
