ok – the last thread for who met their FI online – I’m really curious – anyone out there who actually met their FI in a bar or danceclub?
We met in a bar…it was one of those nights when my girlfriend and I went out dancing – and I was honest to god so sick and tired of guys that I truly went out that night to have fun and not think about guys…and my (now) husband came up dancing (drunk, lol) to me and I figured “what they hey” since my friend had already ditched me to dance with someone…and the rest as they say is history. but yup – it was totally a random meet up at a dance club!
we continued dancing and were even (yeah can’t believe I’m admitting this…) making out on the dance floor before we even knew each other’s names!
Course – he walked us to the car at the end of the night – I gave him my number, he called about 4 days later and the rest as they way is history! 😛

Yup. My FI and I met at a bar. I went out with a friend that night to go dancing. We went to the biggest club in town. It has several bars inside, but we went into the dance area.. (which, even though it is not its official name, frequently gets called “The Skank Tank.”Romantic, huh?)
Anyway, she and I are having fun and dancing, and he and I spot each other on the dance floor. He comes over and asks to buy my friend and I a drink. We all go sit and talk for a while, he gets my number, calls several days later, and we went out and had the best date of my life.
It was funny, after we were together for a while, my FI (boyfriend at the time) told me he was nervous about coming to pick me up for our date because he had been drinking that night and was afraid I might not be as… attractive.. as he thought I was after a few beers. Only a guy would say that..

My fiance and I met almost two years to the day at a bar. Tomorrow is our two year anniversary! It was the busy holiday party season and to be honest, I really didn’t even want to go to this party (a kickball teammate’s birthday pub crawl) as I had been up the night before baking three dozen cookies for a Junior League cookie exchange and then had a brunch date, the cookie exchange and three holiday parties before going to the bar. It is a really divey bar and I was wearing a little black brocade dress and silver Delman flats so I felt overdressed. But when we got to the bar and went downstairs where a friend was bartending, I saw that a lot of people were in suits and party dresses and felt much better. Until I realized that we accidentally “crashed” an office holiday after hours. A woman told us to stay as a lot of the guys were single and without dates. My fiance’s firm was having after hours after dinner at a fancy restaurant downtown; one of his colleagues owned the bar. My fiance was sitting in the corner with a coworker not talking or dancing. My friends convinced me to go over to the two men and see why they were being antisocial. I’m very traditional and didn’t feel comfortable approaching them, so my married friend struck up a conversation with them. She was chatting up my fiance and it turned out that he was sitting in the corner as he had broken his foot playing basketball at work during lunch and had a neoprene kayak booty over his cast as he didn’t want to miss the gourmet dinner and night out. He had just moved to DC from Charleston and hadn’t really gone out yet. When my friend went to the bar, I started talking to my fiance and made sure to mention that my friend was married. We spent the entire night chatting and drinking Blue Moons and at the end of the night exchanged cards and then exchanged emails that Monday and he called me Tuesday night and asked me out on a date. We’ve been together ever since! We even think we might name one of our future children after the bar we met.

My friend met her husband at a country nightclub and my parents met in a typical bar. I always laugh when people say that “the kind of guys that frequent bars aren’t the kind of guy you really want to date” because there’s always a few good ones out there =]..then again what’s that say about the girls who go to bars!?!?! myself included =]

FH and i met in March 2007 at a pre-St. Patrick’s day party at a neighborhood irish pub. FH stopped me and my friends as we were leaving the pub. He offered to get me a beer if they stayed – and who passes up free beer? So that night we talked, but just as friends. It wasn’t until much later that we actually started dating.
and we joke because the bar we met at had a list of “Finn’s couples” who have met and subsequently gotten married. Who says you can’t meet a good man in a bar?!
