Age old question and possible advice for those searching.

I met my significant other on an online dating site. He ended up being the only person I met up with.

We chatted a bit online and he suggested meeting up. So we had a coffee date Christmas eve. What I thought would be about 2 hours ended up with us talking until 2 in the morning. We immediately connected.

Now we're getting married Smiley laugh

    We met at a bar. I didn't want to go out that night or to the bar. and my friend said we are going because she knew the bartender and we would get some free drinks. FH walked in and in my head (while tipsy I thought he's cute and taller than me...I need to talk to him). So we did. I didn't leave that bar till closing that night. We casually dated for a few months till we became official. that was almost 5 years ago.

    I met my fiancé in Italy while on vacation. He was with his sister and brother in law. He’s from Australia I’m in Canada - we connected, kept in contact, kept meeting up in random countries... did long distance and 4 yrs later he moved to Canada and we’re getting married!

    Same! We met online but talked for a few months before meeting in person because I was in the middle of 4th year exams. Our first date turned into a two day date because we stayed up talking the whole night and next day. The was over 6 years ago, and we've been inseparable since.

    We met while working at a restaurant together. I was a server and he worked in the kitchen. It took about 6 weeks for anything to happen but the timing was perfect. I still remember the first moment I saw him and thought he was cute Smiley smile

    We met on Tinder and chatted for a while through text before agreeing to meet up. We met at a bar... he brought along one of his friends, likely because he was scared lol. From there, we hung out at his place and talked ALL night long. I have never connected with anybody as quickly as I did with him. I fell in love within the first few days of being around him.

    As others have said, we met at work. We both worked in the same office space, but for different companies. My first day I was brought around to meet all the different groups and was stunned by this tall handsome blonde man. I found reasons to walk by the area he sat all the time just to sneak a peek.

    Two weeks later at the christmas party for the office, he struck up a conversation and ended up inviting me to a concert after. We hung out until REALLY late and I was smitten. It took him 3 months of casually dating (and me hating it) for him to realize he was ready to not be a party boy anymore.

    We met at work... I was the taboo boss's daughter... but we started hanging out and getting serious, so when we knew we were looking at moving in together, he came into work extra early one day, brought my dad a coffee, and had the "I care a lot about your daughter" speech/ conversation... we thought we had been so sneaky, but everyone knew. We didn't really care, and we've been together ever since Smiley love

    We were both going to visit people in the same city 5 hours away from us. My brother, who I was going to visit, is friends with my fiance and suggested he give me a ride to save on gas. Well, we chatted the whole way up and the whole way back and then he asked me for dinner as he dropped me off.

    We met thru an online dating site. He was the only one I'd gone out with and actually met in person. I was ready to give up and delete my profile,my friend convinced me to wait til end of the month.....well he messaged me! We chatted online for a week, exchanged numbers ans texted for a couple days before taking on phone...the minute I heard his voice my heart skipped a beat! Agreed to meet at a near by store next day. We met, walked around and decided to go for dinner. Realized we had alot in common and sparks flew!

    Thats so cute! We met in high school as we were both in a play together. We had to kiss each other before we’d even had two conversations (our first and only convo was about how much we both liked Bill Murray)! For my grade 12 yearbook we were voted cutest couple and most likely to get married: I guess they were right!

    We met in Grade 2. Haha. We were friends all through elementary, Junior High and hung out now and then in High School (went to different high schools) We even “dated” all of Grade 5. It’s our on going joke of who broke up with who back then. Lol. We still ran into each other after graduating, and even after having kids. It wasn’t until he was going through a divorce that we started hanging out a lot. After a few months, he told me he wanted to start dating, and the rest is history. We’ve been together 9 years now. He’s amazing. We have a beautiful relationship and a deep love for each other. We’ve been through so much together considering we’ve known eachother for almost 30 years! Crazy!

    We met when he was working at FutureShop. I went in for some headphones and he came over to help me and we chatted for a while. A few weeks later I went back to the same store and he came over to talk to me and then asked for me number. We texted for a while and had a few dates and that was it! Smiley smile

    I've always felt nervous meeting people online, after hearing some stories my friends have gone through. However, My girlfriend and I met on a chatroom app, Camfrog. We've talked for several months before meeting. we talked nonstop, day and night. We had this instant connection, where it felt I've known her all my life. I knew I had to meet her, so I made the first move to go and visit her hometown for a week...no regrets. we connected quickly...about a month after, she asked me to be her girlfriend and we have been inseparable since then. Cannot wait to call her my Wife. Smiley laugh

    We met at the dog park! We had both been going for a couple of months and occasionally interacted. We only knew each other by our dogs names. One day he introduced himself formally (I had already been curious about him and thought he was attractive). We started going to the park at the same time every day for a couple hours and would walk around and talk. One day he asked for my number and we made plans for a date. He asked me to be exclusive and the rest is history ❤️.

    We worked at the same catering company, he was my sous chef. We never really talked until 2 months after we met. We were working an event together when he were kinda forced to interact and we clicked. He asked me to go for drinks after it all went down hill from that. He became my best friend.

    We met in college through friends and through a Christian fellowship group. We did a lot of truck drives, and it felt like we just clicked. We've been dating just over three years now and have been engaged for almost one year and getting married in less than three months.
