Just curious where you and the hubby or hubs-to-be met! And please share the story!
We met at a bar! I was out with a bunch of my friends and we kept making eye contact and smiling at each other. Finally, my girlfriend and I were paying our tab and he came up to "get another round" and ended up chatting with me the rest of the night! I never thought I’d meet the love of my life in a bar! haha!

We met at work. I got a job at my college bookstore the very first day I moved in as a freshman. My now-FI was one of the managers of the store. We spent a lot of time together at the store, and of all the managers, he was the one who spent the most time out on the floor with his employees. He was also the most relaxed and nice of all of them. We chatted during downtimes and became friends. I came to school still dating my bf from high school, but I eventually realized what a messy relationship that was and we broke up.
Around the same time, my now-FI announced that he would be leaving the bookstore soon to "get a real job." I had a serious crush on him by this time (and so, I would learn, did he on me), and even though he was somewhat older than I was, I worried that if I didn’t speak up about it, he would leave and I would never see him again. I gave him a cute little "good luck" gift on my last day of work for the semester. Summer was coming, and much to my chagrin, I was about to go back home (300 miles away) for several weeks, but I took down his AIM screenname, and we started talking online every day while I was away. Halfway through the summer, I returned, and we started dating…and, two and a half years later, here we are. 🙂

My FI knew me from work, but I hadn’t noticed him. He saw me at a bar and basically confessed his love of me. I was absolutely flattered!!

In our high school cafeteria 🙂
I basically asked myself to his Junior Prom and we’ve been together ever since!

It’s a huge joke between our group of friends that we met at a club. Neither of us are big for going out , but it was something he did with his boys and I did with my girls. I had been telling my Girls just that night that " you never go to Club ****** to meet a decent guy!" LOL

I picked three! Bar/Club/Party & School & Mutual Friend …
We met at a college party through a mutual friend! 🙂 He didnt go to my college but his best friend friend did and he was home on a break and he came to a party with her … I wish I could say the rest is history, it took a little while for something to happen, but it was still how we "met"!

I went with school and other. We met playing ping-pong in our college UC. We both came down with our roommates, and he and I had a connection of sorts right off, tho nothing came of it for a while. My BF at the time was with me that day, and HATED my FH, for no real reason. Guess he was right tho! 🙂 And the neat part is one of my roommates who played ping-pong that day is still dating one of my FH’s roommates that was there. Now if we can get the other 4 of them hooked up… 🙂

We met at church. He had gone there his whole life, when I started coming with one of my friends around 8th grade. Since he’s 3 years older, it definitely wasn’t instant attraction. We started dating about 4 years later when I was 18 and he was 21!

I checked church, school, and relative…
Our moms met first… they were seated near each other in a "Freshman Commissioning Ceremony" thing when we started college, and his mom overheard mine wonder about local churches. His parents lived in town, so they offered to caravan with us the next day to their church. I met him that Sunday, didn’t think much about it (my mom apparently thought that I should go for him, though), and then kept going to church with him and his family, had my Western Civ class with him, etc. I started hanging out at his house (at first with his kid sister, then as an excuse to be near him) and then he finally asked me if I wanted to go see a movie "as friends." I think two or three weeks later we finally sat down and he admitted that he’d really like to be more than a friend. 🙂

We met at a school function. Although I later learned that he eyed me earlier at a cafe near school and had done some facebook "research" before conveniently appearing at the same function that I attended on the day we met 🙂
I love reading about how people met–when you start thinking about all the things that have to come together at the right time to allow two people to meet and work well together, you realize it’s such an amazing phenomenon when two people meet and fall in love!
Thank you for starting this post, and for everyone’s stories.

I met my fiance at bible school. We entered the school together. During 2 years of training, I do not have any feelings for him. I considered him as a regular brother. We were coordinating in one team twice and I still have no feelings at all. After we graduated, we serve full-time in different places. 3 months after that, he proposed. Yes, directly proposing ! He told me to pray before deciding. I prayed, fellowshipped with the elder, and 1 week after, I said yes. 8 months later, we were engaged officially(with his parents come to my parents’). and 7 months after that we will be married.

We met online (I stalked his profile for 3 weeks before finally getting up the courage to email him). Next day we chatted on IM for hours, and the day after that we met for lunch….by the end of the first date I knew he was "the one". 🙂

I checked work, but that doesn’t really capture it. We both worked at a ski resort, and the X games trials had just finished and we were at the afterparty. So I also checked a sporting event and a bar!

we met through my college roommate. I was dating someone else at the time, but fi was extra flirty even though he knew I was attached! He told his roommate that we were meant for eachother before I was even single again…and he was so right!
He couldn’t even compare to my ex, I knew he was the one before our first date!
