    i can totally see this! we started dating in the late summer… and i think the reason we lasted is because fall is both of our favorite season and we always have so much fun in fall. πŸ™‚  actually, all of my serious relationships started in august/fall!

    @Creiddylad:  actually, i had been friends with almost all of my boyfriends for at least 5-6 months before we started dating. πŸ™‚ i think it really is my positive energy because i love the season so much. i could totally see meeting new people as a big reason fall would contribute to lots of relationships, but it takes me a while to warm up to people so i think that loving the season/having lots of fun date options that i love/being happier in general sealed the deal for me.

    DH and I started dating on November 1st (after being friends for 2 years) so I voted for fall.  I don’t think the season really had anything to do with the success of our relationship though.

    Interesting concept and, yes, I do feel the time of year we met was crucial to how our relationship started.  We met in the summer. 

    We met a couple of weeks before our birthdays, which happen to be only two days apart.  And we happened to live about two blocks from each other, without knowing it.  And we both work for essentially the same agency, at different locations, but we didn’t know that either.  We had an amazing amount of things in common!  And we both fell in love with each other at first sight.  We’ve never been apart since the summer night we met, in July of 2011. 

    We met on a Friday night, and on that next Sunday morning we headed to the beach to spend the day together.  It was about a two-hour drive so had plenty of time to talk.  We walked along the beach for hours.  We went out almost every night in large part because of the weather being so nice.  I think a lot of people are happier in the summer if they’re outdoor types, like we are.

    We agreed to get married in the fall because it’s our favorite season; we got married last September.

    Still, a very cool concept, lol.

    Started dating in spring, but we lived in a state with no seasons and virtually no weather change so in our case, I don’t think it contributed. Still, a cool thing to think about.

    • Wedding: August 2012

    DH and I met online in the fall (Sept.), but went on our first date in winter (Jan.). We were very serious as soon as we became official, even talking about moving in together after a month (he had interviewed at a company 6 hours away, and said if he received the position, he’d want me to move with him–he didn’t get it). That being said, we ended up doing the LDR thing for a few years (for a different reason), had our DD about 3 1/2 years in, didn’t get engaged until almost 9 years in, and finally got married last August after 11 1/2 years. Things started off strong, but we took the long way ’round, lol… 12 1/2 years for us in July, and I have no complaints.

    We met in the late fall. I think this helped us because we had a lot of bonding, in home time which he used to help me through some personal problems I had.

    I think this also adds to our irrational fondness to being close. We are always touching in some way shape or form.

    To quote Grease, “But… oh….. those su-u-ummer ni-i-i-i-i-i-ghts!” I don’t know if the sultry summer night had anything to do with it, but it was one helluva first date. πŸ˜‰ LOL

     

    But truthfully, I think our marathon first date would have gone down differently if we didn’t have the warm summer air coaxing us into a long walk through the city. Those hours that we spent just walking, talking, and never wanting the night to end would have played out very differently had it been 20 degrees with snow on the ground instead. So I dunno… maybe, I guess.

    We started dating in winter, but I don’t think it had any bearing on how awesome our relationship is πŸ™‚

    We met in spring, but I don’t think it really affected our relationship either way. It was a chance meeting πŸ™‚
