She worked in the sewing room of a textile mill / factory and was 18, he was the star pitcher for the mill's baseball team, and also had a job there. He was 24. I never tired of hearing of how they met.

There was a "gang" that hung around together in the 1930s. I don't know how some of them came to be a part of it, but...
My mother and her best childhood friend were part of it.
My father and his best friend, and also my dad's cousin.
A man who was dating my mother, and his sister.
Some others, too.
Ultimately, my mom and dad got married. Her best friend married my fathers cousin, and my moms former boyfriends sister married my dads best friend.
This "gang" remained close friends all through my childhood.

A month later she returned; he put a note in her shoe box, asking her if she'd consider going out with him. She came back to store the very next day and they were married in 6 months!
Did she say, " Thankfully, now I don't have to buy more shoes!"

My mom went to the beach and my dad was working there as an umbrella boy. That's when they met, but it's not when they started dating. That was a few years later when my mom came home from a trip and drove by a hot dude mowing a lawn. She went up to him to hit on him, not realizing it was my dad who had grown up a bit since the last time she saw him!

My parents met at a Jr. Achievement meeting. They were both in High School - she was either a sophomore or Junior at Calumet, he was a Senior at Lindbloom. He never left her side after that - she did try to go on one date with another guy after that, and he tagged along.

My parents met in 6th grade middle school in Compton, CA in the 1950s, two of the first few black kids in the area. My dad told my mom "You're gonna marry me someday" and she thought he was crazy. 51 years later they're still married...

During WWII, my mother was a teenager in the midlands of England, and my dad was a young officer in the American army. He was sent to a base near her home town, and there was a dance one evening near the base, which they both went to. He asked her to dance, and they started seeing one another and remained close during his deployment to France. He got a few days' leave to get married in early 1945, and they stayed married until his death 40 years later.
