As the old saying goes, “it will happen when you least expect it”
This is how it happened for me! My first time ever attempting a “one night stand” with some attractive drunk at a bar and in less than a year he will be my husband… did it happen when YOU least expected it?

I met him when I was dating an ex-boyfriend, so… yes, lol. I wasn’t exactly looking for a different relationship at the time.

I was in high school, but I was looking for a boyfriend at the time. If you told me we were gonna get married (before we started dating) I would have been shocked. But once I met him I would probably just have been skeptical because I was young.

Nope! We met in college, and I was definitely hoping to meet guys there.

Kinda, we had been friends in middle and highschool, never anything romantic, I had dated his best friend and when he broke up with my my now current husband, then friend told me and my parents that he would never get serious with anyone till he was in his twenties…
when we moved back home after college we started hanging out again as freinds… at a party one night we both had a lot to drink and i ended up going home with him, whoops! Oh well… it worked out for the best we started dating and ended up getting married 3 years later. If somebody had told me 10 years ago this is how we would end up I would have laughed and said they were crazy!
So its like we remet when I least expected 🙂

I definitely met FI when I least expected it, I was reeling from a bad break up and he had a girl friend. Hell, I didn’t even like him as a person until we were forced to work in the same building. Here we are 4 years later and we’re getting married in 98 days.

Sort of? I was forcing myself to really get serious about dating again after my ex. I had been on a couple online dating sites for a while and had dated a few guys here and there but no one really struck my fancy until BF. I didn’t expect I would fall in love wiht him as quickly as I did… It was like as soon as I was like “okay, I really need to find a guy I like not just random dudes to go on dates with” bam, there was BF.

Yes. We were coworkers and we were both in relationships when we met. We became friends at work, but due to our relationships we never discussed anything more then being friends. We both left the jobs and kept in touch occassionally. Years later, we both ended up single within 10 months of one another. We happened to chat one day and decided to start hanging out, something we had never done outside of work before. Once we got to spend time together, we quickly fell for one another. There are still days that I stop and think that I cannot believe I am marrying him. Never in a million years did I ever consider that we’d be together. Funny how the universe works sometimes. 🙂

love all these stories! I used to HATE that phrase with a passion btw, but it seems based on the poll results that perhaps it really is the truth!

yes. i was just ending a long-term relationship and just started casually dating a few guys. i was not looking for anything serious at all.
i just happened to go to starbucks one day and we met in the parking lot and walked in together making small talk the whole time and of course in the long line up too. he offered to buy me a coffee so i accepted and we sat down and continued our chat. 4 hours later we exchanged emails, numbers.
he called me the next day for another coffee. i think we had about 5-6 “coffee dates” before he even attempted to kiss me. he was very different from the other guys that i met. he was so refreshing. there was an incredible connection between us. the rest, as they say, is history.

Yup, I was engaged to someone else at the time… actually, the same night I met my now husband, I was drowing my sorrows at a bar while my fiance at the time was a few feet away flirting with a group of girls pretending he didn’t know me, and later went home with one of them and cheated on me… The universe has a funny way of turning your life around, but even though it was one of the worst nights of my life, it was also the best because I met my husband, who then quickly became my best friend… seven months later we started dating. 🙂

Kind of… I had just finished my senior year of high school, and was just going to enjoy the summer before heading off to college. I had no intentions of getting into a serious relationship. But I did, and now 4 years later, I am plnning my wedding to my wonderful FI!

I had recently gotten out of a damaging relationship, had moved far away from the man in question, wasn’t looking to have a boyfriend. My husband was attempting to get my attention at work with corny jokes and I wasn’t interested. In fact he was about to give up because I was so closed off. But eventually we went on a date and the rest is history.

Yup, I was waiting for my never-ending gut-wretching Divorce to come to end… I was an emmotional wreck and dating was THE LAST THING on my mind. I met Mr TTR thru a new GF I had made, and we hung out for a month or so (in the same social circle / group of friends). He liked me… says he saw a “spark” in me that was fun and interesting (lol, here I was feeling sorry for myself, and thinking the “old me” was dead and gone). So he persued me. I told him I wasn’t up to dating, so we spent a lot of time together with “the group” of friends. Eventually, I think I came to understand that this “bit of fun” I was having with him was actually dating, it just happened to always happen with a group of mutal friends around us. One day, he did ask me on a one-on-one date, and I agreed. It was a fabulous date… lol, lasted a whole weekend. He was smitten, and I had bitten (as in the fruit of love) and from that moment on we’ve been pretty much inseperable. He really did win my heart. And I’m glad he did. Seven Years & 1 Month later, and we’ll be standing hand-in-hand, looking into each other’s eyes and saying our “I Do’s” on a beach overlooking the Atlantic Ocean.

Heh. Yes. I had only been broken up with my former long-ish term bf (but it was mostly in HS) a couple months before. I also had started kind of noticing another guy in some stuff a college group I was part of was doing over the summer and I think he noticed me too. Then I met DH at a thing at my church and sat with him because it was summer and instead of all college kids like normal, there were a bunch of the HS youth kids and he looked like he was closer to my age. And he was dating someone else at the time…. Ooops. I didn’t find that out until after I had blown off an event I knew other boy would be at to go to one with DH. It is really good we met when we did, we actually had a class together our first semester at college but I just knew him as that guy who always walked in late and I was the annoying science major who liked history too much in an art history class full of studio artists who didn’t care. He grew up a lot between that class and when we met which was very good. He was kind of a mess and a player before. But it all ended well!
