How Did You Meet Your Significant Other?

Include the year you met and I'd love a photo! This can be your current loved one, or someone you thought would be your forever and ended on good terms.

    I'm just tagging a couple of you guys to get this started. I want to hear from any and everyone though!

    I'm not going to steal your love story and try to copy it so I can find my own true love! Why would you even think that?
    😍 See the next bullet for an example.

    I met the love of my life on a trip to New York in 2007!
    We were a perfect couple for about three minutes, but went our separate ways when other girls tried to take pictures with him too! I never wore bangs again after we broke up. Okay, your turn!

    He was big and strong. He had a sexy pale spot right by his dorsal fin. It only lasted one month. Once the seasons started to change, he left for the Arctic feeding grounds without me.

    He was standing across a crowded bar with a girlfriend I hadn't seen in a long time. As I waved to my friend I thought to myself "I wonder if that's the guy I'm going to marry"
    It was

    Umm...how long you got?
    Shipped from Spain, she tickled me with a French feather, God brought her to me, mail order German freak, seduced by a teenager, she looked like a promising nurse...

    I met my husband in 2005
    Long story short-We were both in a wedding and met at a dinner party about 6 months before the event. By the time of the wedding we were already a couple. (Pic from that day)

    We met our first semester of college, in astronomy class. He was friends with my lab partner, and she introduced us. He copied all of my class notes instead of paying attention.
    I don't have quick access to pictures of that time period because that was...18 years ago!!! No digital cameras then.πŸ˜‚ This is the earliest pic I could find, from a trip to Boston in 2006 (I was in my hair-straightening era).

    Ok. It's kinda long. I might have to write a whole list about it. We had both just moved to Colorado and happened to meet at church. Someone said "you should hear him sing!" And someone else said "you should hear her play piano" and then when we actually got together, it was a huge deal because of our race difference. That was 32 years ago!

    We met on Match.com in 07! I completely blew our first phone conversation with my awkwardness! I deleted my profile shortly after. 3 months later I checked to see if he was still on there. He was, so I made a new profile. He immediately sent me a message. We talked that night for hours and met the next night for drinks.
    And we've been together ever since. πŸ˜ƒ

    We met on Jdate when it was embarrassing to do online dating. Later we'd find out our grandmothers went to camp with each other in the 1930s.

    My husband and I shared an office as graduate teaching assistants. When I learned he was a music theory TA (without even meeting him), I told my sister I wanted to marry him. I said it mostly to be a nerd and make her laugh, but it ended up coming true. πŸŽΆπŸ’–

    I had his band on my college radio show.
    I forgot to give them a recording of the interview and met up with Mr. Astroboi a short while later. We spent hours talking... a couple months later we started dating and have been together ever since.

    I was working at Contempo Casuals in 1994. I had mentioned to a coworker that I loved redheads and she said I needed to meet her friend Matt. She was an insane person and I didn't think I wanted to know anyone that she knew. Months later he stopped by to say hi to her and I got busted checking him out.
    Him: are you staring at my butt? It's a great butt go ahead and look at it. Here I'll turn for you. Take in its glorious mess Me: 😍 We will be married 20 years this October.

    A mutual friend invited both of us to his 21st birthday party. It was a joint birthday party for me, so my first charming words to my now-husband were, "Who the fuck are you?" 😁 I blacked out at the bar that night, we made out, he took me on a date the next day, and we're celebrating our third wedding anniversary tomorrow πŸ˜€

    We met in 2012 in college. We were in the same friend group and always talked. We had so much in common but I didn't realize I liked him until 2014. I decided to go up to him at a party while I was drunk and whisper "I have a crush on you" and proceeded to immediately try and kiss me but I rejected him lol we basically talked 24 hours,
    7 days a week after that. We've been together ever since

    We met at my first job out of college. I was super shy, rarely leaving my desk. He came into our area a lot to flirt with everyone (I was warned about him!); I'd sweat a lot. He asked me about my weekends (did I have any dates...). I thought he was looking out for me like a big brother. We started hanging out (dinners/movies). No idea he liked me.
    Finally, in January 2000 he kissed me and I realized he was into me. πŸ‘¦πŸΎπŸ’•πŸ‘©πŸ»

    We were born Canadians studying in England, living 45 minutes apart. I knew of him from my church in Canada but we didn't really talk. He made me feel more at home and we became really good friends before we started dating

    Online, Then In Person, Then Online.
    We are both part of the same super old school online community called The Well. I was vaguely aware of her, but there was no big attraction. Then we met in person at a party, I was stunned. I resolved to get more involved with her online. I described her perfectly in a "who do you usually go for?" topic and OMG SHE TOOK THE BAIT. We've been together ever since our 1st date 19 years ago, married 16 years. This pic is prob 18 years old, but it is a fave of mine.
