Long time lurker first time poster 🙂 Ok so my fiancee and I got together like this…
I was dating my bf at the time for 3 years, he was dating his gf at the time for 4 years and my bf and him were best friends. He broke up with his gf for whatever reason and about 6 months later, my bf and I broke up (long time coming).
About 3 months later we saw each other out at a pub and got to talking (were always friendly – never any bad vibes from breaking up with his friend or anything). We were flirting and one thing lead to another and we started texting and then hanging out and then making out and the rest is history!
Our getting together was (not surprisingly) taken well by our mutual group of friends and as a result, he lost his best friend (my ex) and we were both ousted from the group of friends.
We have been together for 4 years now and we are both so happy that we took the plunge to be together, regardless of the loss in friends. (We have since regained many after joining a softball team together).
My problem is – how do we write about our ‘how we met’ story on our wedding site? I don’t want to talk about the drama of how we became to be together but I can’t exactly say that we met at the grocery store or anything (haha). Ideas on how to be discreet but also truthful?

You start at how you saw each other at a bar and previously knew each other, but never dated. But this time something clicked for you two. There is no need to talk about how you knew each other.

Great advice. Totally agree. A short and sweet “meeting story” is always better anyway!

Is it necessary to write a ‘How we met’ story?
If so, well you can say things like… we met each other through mutual friends, at the time we were both in relationhips which ended eventually. Time passed and destiny brought us together, we started a friendship from that point and realized we were meant for each other.
I’m cheesy I know, but that’s what came to my mind =P.

My husband and I met while I was in a long-term relationship with his then-roommate. After the roommate and I broke up, DH and I stayed friends, and about a month later we ended up dating.
Our friends know the whole story, but it doesn’t sound all that fantastic, even though no cheating went on. So I usually just omit the whole roommate bit and say that DH and I had been friends for several years and then fell in love. It’s the truth! 🙂

That’s basically how I feel as well. We were both very single at the time but apparently us getting together was still not considered appropriate. Whatevs – that is long in the past now! I love the idea of we were friends and fell in love.

hey there. me and my Fiance have a not so great “how we met story” either…but I’ll show you what I wrote for our wedding website.
First..I’ll tell you in a nutshell..what really went down; I worked with his ex-wife at a restaurant and he would come in and have dinner during our shift. I didn’t give him much thought at that time because I knew he was married but about a year after his ex quit the restaurant..I saw him come in solo with his friends and we were set up by another friend who worked at the restaurant who knew him. At that time I kinda recognized him but didn’t put two and two together until we spoke for the first time then I realized I’d seen him before when he was married to my former co-worker. We dated for about 6 months and broke up..not because anything bad happend really…truth be told he sorta blew me off! LOL. I was only 19 and he was 26! I guess I was ‘rebound girl’. I was hearbroken but decicded to forget he ever existed. HE contacts ME exactly one year later (to the date he dumped me) to tell me happy birthday…it was NOT my birthday…lol. Well the rest is history..we remained in touch, but mostly just as friends for years until a few years before we got engaged…when we fell in love. =) Here’s how I wrote my story for all to see…mind you I didn’t lie…but I ommitted any unsavory details.:
Steve and Sarah met years ago, when Sarah was just nineteen years old. She was working in a restaurant as a hostess where Steve and his friends would often come in to have dinner.
With the help of friends, they were eventually introduced. It didn’t take long before they saw something very special in one another….something that never went away.
They continued to see each other over the years and remained very close.
A few years ago, it became overwhelmingly clear to Steve and Sarah that what had grown from a friendship, a mutual respect, and from years of caring for one another…. was indeed,true love.~

Yeah we don’t have a good story either.
I met Fiance through a friend, I also met B. I ended up bedding B quite a buncha times all the while it was a big joke between all of us we were hooking up. I quickly grew to like Fiance more than B. Evenutally I told him I wanted more and knew he wasn’t willing to provide so I said I was done with him. I still showed up to watch their hockey games but all of a sudden I was going home with Fiance instead of B. Needless to say that was awkard for all involded. Not to mention they are obviously no longer friends… Yeah oh well.
My website says: they met in a bar (who says you can’t meet a good girl in a bar!?) they hit it off and that was that.
No hint of me, in B’s bed.

We skipped that section on our website 🙂 Our story: we met in the dorms freshman year at college. I thought he was kinda weird and didn’t talk. He also dated one of my friends, who ended up being one of my roommates. Long story short, 9 years later we’re getting married and I don’t speak to any of my ex-roommates.

Dude and Girl met briefly while they were dating other people. He broke up with the girl he was seeing and she broke up with the guy she was seeing and they didn’t really see one another any more. Which was ok because they were merely casual acquaintances.
Thankfully, a few months later, our casual acquaintances ran into each other at Frederick’s Pub.
Always friendly, they chatted for a while. This led to flirting. Which led to dating. Which led to Dude proposing to Girl 4 years later. Which will lead to Dude and Girl getting married on whatever date they are getting married.

@AllRosesandSunshine:My hubby was my “one time, I can prove I’m not just a good girl, I can prove I have a bad girl side and just have a fling” fling.
And then we got married.
We tell offendable people that we met on vacation. 😀 (true)

@AllRosesandSunshine: You could say you were introduced by a mutal aquiantance at the time and further down the road of history you crossed paths and really hit it off. That wway, those that don’t know your history look at you crazy (if you feel you’re going to get crazy looks) and its still a true and happy ending.
