Except I am! I think it’s funny when people say that, because obviously YOU’RE at a bar, so why not meet someone there?
Just curious if anyone else met their SOs in a bar. We met at the outdoor bar of the restaurant across the street from my condo. We hit it off immediately and got married 11 months later!

@oneofthesethings: I was a bartender for like 8 years, and had a strict policy of “no-dating-guys-from-the-bar” that I never, ever stuck to. I’d say it was a 50/50 split: half were alcoholic jerks/players and the other half were normal dudes I happened to meet in a bar. Though, in the interest of full-disclosure, with the alcoholic jerks/player category, I could TOTALLY see it coming a mile away. I guess I was more “open minded” back then 😉

Meh, I think a bar is a great place to meet someone because its a social environment.
While my husband and I didn’t meet at the bar, we met after/outside the bar, so we had both enjoyed our night of adult beverages prior to meeting. 🙂

- Wedding: July 2017 - Bristol zoo
I was in the bar area of a hotel? XD
I don’t see why it wouldn’t be a fine place to meet someone ^^

We met online, but our first date was in a local pub and I’d never trade it! I loved how relaxed our meeting was and now it’s a really special place to us 🙂

I sure did meet my fiance in a bar. Which knowing us, totally makes sense!

Yep, we totally met in a bar. Actually, I was there to break up with the guy I was dating at the time. While waiting for him to show up (always late….one of the reasons we broke up) I met my current SO. It’s now been almost 4 years :).

My husband picked me up at a night club. It makes for a lot of good jokes now.

I met my fiance at a bar. We were both meeting a mutual friend there for a celebration. We hit it off, obviously.

Who cares where you meet the person you’re supposed to be with!! I met my Fiance when I was dating someone else. We just so happened to be living on the same floor of the same dorm building. We started talking one night, and after a few days I realized I really liked this new guy. I broke it off with the guy I was with and immediately started dating Fiance. 7 and a half years later, we’re 6 months out from our wedding day.
You don’t get to choose where and when and under what circumstances you meet the person you’ll end up marrying!

I met Fiance at a camping trip to the Key West of the north (Put in bay) and its all bars…..

We met at a local tap house, so, yeah, met at a bar – haha! So, who cares? 🙂 We’re deliriously happily married and that’s all that matters to me. We go there every Friday night and make a toast to the wonderful night we met.

Hahaha! For years before I met my husband I used to say meeting someone in a bar was always a bad idea, since its usually alcohol induced so your judgement on both parts can be swayed.
I met my Darling Husband in a club at the bar! I was sober and he was drunk!

We met on the dance floor at a bar. Yes at a bar. He bumped into me and I gave him a dirty look. Suddenly I was chatting with him and bought him a birthday drink. At the end of the night he wanted my number. Heck no!! I do not meet guys at bars and certainly don’t give my number out so randomly. He ended up knowing one of the girls I was with and she released my number!
So yes I was always one of the “I will never meet someone at a bar.” Over six years of dating later, we celebrate our 1 year wedding anniversary in June 🙂
