Inspired by a thread on another chatboard.

My meeting was far from romantic....

I was 16 and at a New Year party. My friend and I were a bit tiddly and she was bragging about how she could have any guy at the party as she had big bo0bs which I didn't. I said something along the lines of 'bull$hit' so she bet me $50 that she could pull a selected male before I could. To keep it fair she asked a mutual friend to chose the random guy.

26 years later I think I deserve another $50

My boyfriend and I met the week I moved to my current city, about 5 1/2 years ago. I transferred to the store where he was working. We weren't coworkers for very long before we each found new jobs, but I remember liking him at the time. I was 20, almost 21. He was 18, almost 19 then. We hung out once or twice casually, and then lost touch for few years. Maybe 2 1/2 years ago, he randomly struck up a conversation with me on Facebook, and we started hanging out occasionally over the course of 6-8 months or so. I was in a casual (dead-end) relationship at the time, wanting something more. Then one day we realized there was potential between us, so we decided to give a relationship a shot and see what would happen... Our two-year anniversary is this July. I love him with all my heart.

I was walking on a grass area near a beautiful forest, and then I noticed movement, and there she was, just chillin' out.

My friend introduced me to my boyfriend. My bf and I knew our mutual friend from University as all of us were studying psychology. We were friends for about 18 months before any romantic involvement though, but I think it might be one reason why we're going so strong .

He sent me a nice note through an online dating site. We were married a little less than a year later.

At work. He started as an intern but I waited until he was hired full-time to make my move, cuz I'm professional like that.

Actually it was a long series of semi-flirtations, awkward sort-of dates, and mutual feelings of "this person makes me feel pants happy but I don't know if this person is made pants happy by me" before we finally made out over a recently purchased IKEA coffee table. Seven months in we still work together but it's going really well

We had Physics III together as undergrads.

He struck up a conversation between our recitation and lecture, we've been inseparable ever since.

We met shooting zombies together over 2 years ago.

I can't abandon the person I used to be, so I carry her.

We knew each other online first, but she lived in Montreal and me in Las Vegas. We both traveled a lot though her as an international auditor and me as... a nomad :/ When she had an audit in Las Angeles, I decided to drive there and pick her up at the airport. After her audit she took a few days off and we made our first "date," if you'd call it that, a 3 day vacation to Disneyland and Universal Studios. We hit it off and, over the next two years, made sure our schedules brought us together whenever possible.

Second date Las Vegas, third date Denver followed by a road trip to the Grand Canyon, fourth date Taiwan (Taipei and Kaohsiung)... I eventually just decided to move to Quebec, and now we have a 5 month old baby.

We were set up on a blind date by a stripper and a degenerate gambler. We met at a bookstore on the day the Red Sox won the World Series. True story.

I've known that exact thing to happen before, but I don't think they were mods of those sections (that was three boards there instead of two, anyway) and the cities were different. Oh, and we all saw it coming too, so that also.

Jesus saved me, but the file was corrupted.

It is suprising to know what goes on behind the scenes.

I often wonder where our moderators are ?!!!!!!

Haha. The other guy wasn't that nice anyway. I broke up with my boyfriend that night and went home with my (now) husband and then we broke up after a few months and then met up again six months later in the same rock club when I was with a different new boyfriend and I ended up ditching the guy and going home with him again. We've been together a long time though and I wasn't really serious about those other two guys.

My roommate (now ex-roommate) who I had never met before moving in with her, brought a guy from our school over to our place that she'd facebooked a few times over the summer. They were both drunk when they came in and I was sitting in the living room watching tv. The next day when he woke up we made random small talk. Then he started coming over to visit when she wasn't there, and asking me to hangout without her. A month later he asked me out, and we've been together for 8 months now and are happily in love. Oh, I had to find a new dorm to live in, but this one is closer to his dorm room and my classes, so it worked out just fine.

I saw an ad on Craigslist for a room for rent in a house full of vegans. A few weeks after moving in, we threw a potluck for World Vegan Day. He was invited to the potluck through the roommates, but arrived early by mistake. No one else was home yet, just me. We didn't know each other but ended up hanging out and talking anyways while we waited for others to show up. He helped me finish making my food and get set up for the party. It turns out that he actually lived in the house at one point, too, and had just moved out -- it was he who left and me who had replied to the room-for-rent ad and moved in. I had his old room in his old house, and he had no trouble making himself at home

We met online. My ad clearly stated that I had several companion animals so I didn't want to be contacted by anyone who was allergic. He responded and mentioned he had a rescue poodle, as did I.

We didn't live together until after we got married last year. Turns out, he is mildly allergic to cats but all is well as long as they stay out of our bedroom.

I contacted a guy on an online dating site. I was on the last day of my membership and had decided not to renew because I'd had so many bad experiences. I took a chance and sent a message. Around the same time I had gotten back in touch with a childhood friend I hadn't seen since high school (over 12 years). She had a MySpace page and I realized one of her pictures of a friend looked very familiar. That's when I realized my friend was friends with this guy I had been chatting up. I asked how she knew him, she asked how I knew him, and she is the reason I felt comfortable taking the relationship off-line. He and I are coming up on our third anniversary and have an 18 month old son together.

The very picture that sealed my fate...

Beginning of a university year. My roommate (high school friend) was interested in one of C's best friends from high school. Apparently, C saw me down the hallway, rushed to his friends room, changed into a nicer shirt and came to meet me I was smitten at first sight but was dating someone else. So, broke up with the someone else and then made my move. C's a bit shy so it was a pretty obvious move on my part

It will be 13 years in September. It's been tough at times, I didn't mean to meet a someone I was so serious about at 19. We basically did a lot of growing up together, we've outlasted almost every one of our university friends in terms of relationship length. We've now outlived several engagements, a disastrous marriage and some really interesting high school romances gone bad.
