I'm sure this thread has happened before but I'd love to hear everyone's stories!

How did you meet your Fiance/Fiancee?

Or for those already done with their big day how did you meet your Husband/Wife?

I met my Fiance at work! We worked together for about 2 years and were good friends before anything really hit off! I developed a massive crush on him a few months before I got enough courage to make a move! Smiley heart

    We met when we were 14 and starting high school together - and we’ve been together ever since! We are each others’ first & only. Truly my “high school sweetheart” haha.

    We met at work! We work at a LTC facility (I had been a nurses assistant for 5 years there and she was our new charge RN) I chased her for weeks (not having any idea if she was gay or not haha) I finally had to at least try.. we’ve been together 1.5 years, and we’re still working together as well. 😊

    Daniel and I Met throw a friend Lucy. It's funny she exactly dated him when she was in her teenager years. I have changed my friends name just for privacy purposes. We've been together 6 years as of 11/25 this year.

    We met online 3 years ago, went on a coffee date and fell hard for each other. Fast forward and now we have 3 cats, a house and a wedding coming up! Couldn’t be happier if I tried.

    My fiance and I met about a year ago online and it took a couple tries to get to our first date cause I kept cancelling on him but by the 2nd date we knew we were perfect for each other. I've never been this happy for this long with anyone and I'm really excited to get to spend the rest of my life with him. Smiley heart

    We actually met in grade 5 and then in highschool we hangout with some of the same people but never really went out of our way to hang out alone. We would always text here and there because we had the same interest in sports and just life itself. I then left our home town for 3 years to go to College and only came back during summers. We hungout one day 3 summers ago and we connected so well. We have been together since then Smiley smile

    I too met my fiancé at a previous workplace! He noticed me and eventually got the courage to sit across from me to be able to talk to me (which was funny as that cubicle was meant to be mine, but I preferred my old one and continued to sit there instead). We quickly became friends and talking to each other during work made the days go by much faster (and our conversations began to continue after work too). After talking for nearly two months, he asked me out to lunch and a movie!

    My partner and I had met several times over the years before we ~really~ met. He and I both volunteered at a local crisis helpline, then again with another local non-profit, then again at a company we both worked at. Then years later we met at a bar, I was fresh out of a separation from my ex-husband (I was nervous about being so into someone so soon after my separation). It was meant to be, I suppose! We've been inseparable ever since!

    I met my Fiance at work, we first met when I was 16 and I couldn't stand him. He was older and didn't go out of the way to make new staff feel welcome as it was retail and a lot of them didn't last. Fast forward 3 years when I came home from university and returned to work there. I decided to give him a chance as I now really enjoyed talking to him and I haven't looked back since.

    I was worried I would be the only one to say "we both swiped right". I was actually visiting famiy from Australia. I was feeling a little lonely and basically just wanted someone to talk to! We obviously matched and talked for a few weeks before I finally got up the courage to go out and meet him. He brought me blueberries on our first date (In Aus they aren't cheap so its a novelty).
    We spent about a month hanging out with eachother before I had to fly home. Once I was back in Aus we actually facetimed daily, morning and night. Until I decided to move back to Canada for almost a year to see where things would go!

    Almost 4 years later & him moving to Australia we are now engaged and getting married in Lake Louise!!

    We also met on POF. I was his first date, he was my third date.

    We went for dinner on a Monday, he talked my east off! He says because he was nervous Smiley winking I loved all of his stories, and couldn't wait to see him again for our second date, which wasn't until the Saturday. We texted a lot in between. It wasn't long until were were spending the night with each other neatly every night. Four months later, we moved in together!

    I was my husband's customer when he worked at FutureShop. I went in for some headphones and we ended up talking for a couple of hours. I went back a few weeks later and we ended up talking some more and he even took my number and we started texting and then had a date and a few weeks later we were meeting each other's parents.

    I met my fiancé through his brother (we were friends) back in high school. I ended up staying the night at his family’s camp sight, we went mudding on quads the next day and Evan (my fiancé) had to protect me from the ice cold stream water they were throwing at me.. It took some time as I categorized him in the “friend zone” for afew years, but we eventually hit it off. we’ve been together for five years now and I couldn’t be happier!

I am excited for this new chapter we are about to start 💕

    Thanks!! My FH has wanted to do the proposal there but it didn’t quite workout that way so I thought it’s be nice to get some photos there and incorporate the dogs. The area is all forested so I think they will turn out pretty.

    We met at University! We were both Varsity athletes for different sports and were friends for 3 years before he made a move. We were both in long-term relationships prior to getting together. I totally had a crush on him when I first met him but obviously couldn't say anything, and never thought he ever really noticed me, but apparently I was wrong. I was at his house for a party that him and his roommates were throwing when he asked me out.

    We met in high school... We were in the same physics class and entered a science competition on the same team (called the Physics Ninjas) so got to know each other fairly well. After high school we kept in touch and planned a hike with all 4 physics ninjas. One guy couldnt make it because of baseball and one guy just didnt show up. So my and my FH went just the 2 of us and had a lot of fun.

    And then we spent the next number of months finding excuses to hang out until it got to the point where he was paying for all of our outings (they were essentially dates but neither of us would admit it) because i couldnt afford to go out at all. And after about a solid year of that we finally admitted we liked each other started dating.

    The rest was history! Dated for a year and a half before I moved away for school and we survived 4 years of long distance before moving in together at about 5 years. Got engaged at about 6 years.

    Now weve been togather over 7 years and less than 3 months to go before the wedding!

    We met on OKCupid. He messaged me a line about Doctor Who and we went from there. After having to cancel our first date due to a work problem, we got together later that week and had a wonderful time talking. We became official when i invited him to spend New Years 2017 with me. That was our 4th date. By July he was moved in and October we were engaged. The wedding in 12 days from now on April 21st.

    A mutual friend introduced us during college! Our friend was coming over to watch movies with me and he had texted her asking if he could hang with her while his friend finished class cause they were supposed to go to the gym together so she brought him along. If his friend hadn't been late getting out of class who knows when/if we would have met!

    Our story sounds very farmilar! I never know how people will respond when I say we met online but for us it worked. It’s obvious there will be a million creepers but that can also the case when you meet people in bars, clubs, friends, etc!

    We met st the dog park! We had both been going for a few months at the same time but hadn’t ever really interacted. I usually always had headphones in and would keep to myself. In the spring he introduced himself and said he wanted to know people by their own names and not just by their dog names. At that point I thought he was really attractive and we started “unknowingly” going to the park at the same time every day. We’d walk around the park for a couple hours and talk and interact with our dogs. One day he asked for my number and another day asked me on a date... the rest is history. And this Friday we are going back to the park for our engagement photos.

    We were in a play together in high school. I had to kiss him before we had even had two conversations together. The only thing we had talked about prior was how much we both liked Bill Murray. I guess it worked out though... we’ve been together for 6.5 years now!
