Well I was in a relationship for 5+ years and because I have depression and anxiety and bipolar disorder, my ex when he was my boyfriend told me that I was down that I was brining him down and it wasn’t fair to him and he wanted out.
i for some reason created an account on an online dating website called http://www.pof.com
i wasn’t looking for anyone, I didn’t even want a boyfriend, couldn’t tell you why I was on there guess I was just courious.
Anywho I says this guy on there from my same home town, went to the same high school and everything, graduated three years before me. So stupid me emails him and says oh hey I’m from Pelham too, what year did you graduate because at the time I didn’t know.
We started talking for awhile found out we had many of the same friends and everything, finally he asked me months we’ve been best friends ever since. Everyone says we were made for each other. 17 months later he asked me to be his wife.
i haven’t been happier. Funny thing is before I met him online I didn’t have a clue as to who he was. Funny how small the world really is.
whats your story ?? 🙂

We met at the new graduate student orientation at a major public university. He was starting a PhD in physics, and I was starting an MA in art history. We hung out as part of a group who met at the orientation, and by October we began to date exclusively. That was Fall 2006.

Craigslist! Yes, a moment of weakness I made a profile and he responded (I still have the email) in a cute and memorable way. I insisted we meet shortly after.
I joke that he’s the most normal guy I’ve dated (as you can see from my ex posts, I’ve dated some crazies) so while I used to be embarrased, I laugh it off now.
Oh and this was 5 years ago before CL was too crazy..

We met at work. We didn’t work together(my manager traveled a lot, so I was just using a desk at that location), but I sat directly across from him. Our first time really hanging out was the anti-valentines day for us lonely singles happy hour. LOL the rest is history!

@oxstardust421xo: Woah! I have a crazy similar story! Just before leaving my abusive ex, I got into super casual online dating. Mostly I liked looking and knowing I had options! After finally leaving him, I was sort of seeing this one guy… Once a week… After 9 or 10pm. Ahem.
Anyway, I was just sort of checking my options, kind of enjoying casual dating, when I happened upon the PERFECT profile.
And it was DH!

My FI and I went to middle school together! My family moved soon after and I went to a different high school and college, and then we reunited, of sorts, via Facebook shortly before we graduated college. This month we’ve been together for 4 years and are getting married next month. Crazy!

My husband met online playing WoW, on our wedding album it says, “This is the love story that began when a palladin healed an injured rogue in the swamps of Zangarmarsh.”

We met through a matchmaking service called It’s Just Lunch. Their gimmick is setting up lunch and happy hour dates for busy professionals. I joined because I’m shy and had a tough time meeting guys. FI has a crazy work schedule and thought it would be a good way to meet people. We were set up by our matchmaker to meet up for happy hour after work one evening. It went well. We got engaged a little over a year after our first date!

@oxstardust421xo: online website but not a dating one. It was http://www.stickam.com. It was a chat site that a lot of bands used to talk to fans and a lot of other people used to talk to friends.
He creeped my profile and pics and then came in and we started talking. we were pretty inspereable within a couple of days. We’d spend hours, like all night, talking to each other.
I met him a little over a month after we started talking, by myself, in another country. It wasn’t my finest hour but it turned all pretty good 😉
