Another bee, sarandah :, revived an old thread, but I thought I’d give it its own twist:
At what age did you meet your SO (not necessarily begin dating) and how?!
I met my bf at the end of my first semester in college. I was 18 and he had just turned 19. My friend who was dating his “big brother” in his fraternity suggested I take him to a sorority date function. I looked at his Facebook, decided he was “cute enough” and she invited him for me.
We ran in the same circles and causally hooked up until two years later when I got green with envy- he was close to making things official with another girl. Swooped in and never looked back. We’re not engaged yet, but today he randomly commented that he felt really good about getting married in 2020 as it would be the start of our second decade full decade knowing each other! I hadn’t realized and loved that sentiment 🙂

We met when I was 28, but I was in a very long term relationship at that time.

We met when we were 12 or 13 in our church youth group in the year 2000. I thought he was the cutest thing 😂 and well so did one of my cousins. We went on a church youth trip together and after that we started “dating” if you want to call it that. We went to a couple school dances together and then a few years later when we got our licenses we still hung out some.
However, we drifted apart. I got married and he went overseas and joined the military. I was married for 6 years and went through a divorce in 2015. In the spring of 2016, he messaged me on FB and the rest is history. We’ve been together ever since and hopefully looking at marriage next year!

He was 18 and I was 22. We met online in a game we both play lol. Played together til he jumped ship for another game. Stayed in touch slightly but not a ton til he came back to the game a few years later. After that we started getting to know each other a lot better. So so glad he came back lol.
