I want to know how you met!
I met my Fiance almost 12 years ago this August.
I was raised by my mom in Ontario, and she decided to ship me off at 16 to live with my dad and half brothers in BC, who I’d only met once before. When I arrived, I didn’t know anyone except my brothers. A day or so later, this hot guy (FI) comes over and introduces himself, our dad’s are best friends. We became friends and eventually friends with benefits during high school but never actually got together.
After high school we didn’t really hang out or anything. I had a kid, he got a long-term Girlfriend, we’d all get together with our parents for sushi every Sunday, we’d all spend Christmases and Thanksgiving together.
After 8 years of him being with his lazy, user, good for nothing Girlfriend and me having two kids and being in horrible relationships, we both happened to be single at the same time. After sushi one Sunday last August, he texted me a wink and it all went from there.
I love that there was no awkward having to meet his parents, b/c I’ve already considered them my family and two of the most important people in my life for 12 years.
Oh funny story…back in high school, when one of my brothers found out that Fiance and I were FWB, he pointed his finger at me and said “that guy better not ever become part of my family!” Fiance ran into my brothers the other day and told them he asked me to marry him. They were both really happy for us.

@PaganJenny: That’s great! 🙂 DH and I also met almost 12 years ago come August (how odd is that!) when we were moving into the dorms during our first year of college. I kid you not, he was the first person I met, but we didn’t become friends until 6 months later. We became the best of friends, and really didn’t officially get together until a year and a half later!

Fiance and I met at work 🙂
I was new to living in South FL and had just started a new job. Fiance was my, “OMG he’s so hot”, boss, haha!
We were both dating other people at the time but we became friends right away. Around 11 months later I took a different position that had me scheduled to work until 1 am. Fiance was working late one night and at this time we were both single – he saw that I was working late as well (via work IM), came to my desk, asked me if I wanted to go grab breakfast at iHop to catch up and I said yes. We were there for 3 hours talking & laughing. We had our first kiss a few days later and 4 years later, we’re engaged & still working for the same company! 🙂
