    • Wedding: January 2017

    I chose love at first site because that’s what it felt like. Technically it could also be “online”. We playedvideo games together when I was in FL and he was in CA. But didn’t think anything of it. Years later I moved to CA, completely unrelated to him (I was NorCal he was SoCal ish) he and his roommate invited me to a New Years party and I decided to drive the 5 hours since I was alone for the holidays (my family is still in FL) and when I got to their place as I was running in the door (I really had to pee lol) he was sitting on the couch and I remember him looking back at me. Idk why that moment has stuck in my mind (and his too) but we went to the party and spent the night talking, partnering up for beer pong (and losing terribly) and we kissed at midnight. And now here we are going on 4 years and about to get married January 1st 🙂

    • Wedding: September 2017

    Summer camp before high school. I was 14 and didn’t speak English very well yet. Fiance knew some Spanish and it was the closest anyone could get. So he played half-assed translator for the summer. 

    We didn’t start dating until I was a senior in hs though.

    • Wedding: April 2018

    We met when we worked together years ago. 

    I was in a long term relationship with someone. He was off doing his thing. We both thought the other was cute. 

    A few years passed, we no longer worked together. I was no longer with the guy, we wasn’t happy with the girl he was seeing and we kept running into each other. Everything just fit. We went out and it was everything you could want in a date. I’ve never been happier with someone. I get to marry the most amazing man that makes me laugh, think, dream. I couldn’t have made him better.

    • Wedding: June 2017

    I met Fiance online from POF. I used a method called the “blitz” (named after blitzkrieg -an intense military campaign intended to bring about a swift victory). In this method I would just email a number of guys who somewhat met my criteria of what I was looking for. I used a pretty generic email but tweaked it so that they at least knew I read their profile. Fiance lived in my hometown that I was trying to relocate back to. We chatted randomly for a few months (meanwhile I was interested in another guy). One weekend when I was back home Fiance and I decided to go for coffee even though I had a date with the other guy. Since I wasn’t exclusive with anyone and really just filling time while trying to relocate it seemed alright. Coffee went alright and I thought he was a nice guy but the sparks certainly didn’t fly.

    Fast forward over the next 6 months we kept in touch. Fiance went on to briefly date another girl while I was still wrapped up in the original guy. Finally I got a job offer back in my hometown. Since Fiance lived so close to where I was staying I thought well I have nothing better to do so I will go for a beer with him. Things with the other guy were fizzling (even though they never were really anything). Low and behold Fiance and I had an awesome time and the rest was history.

    Tinder win!

    Another vote for Tinder. I thought Tinder was just a bit of fun but apparently it’s quite the matchmaker. We met in September 2014, started living together in February 2016 and got engaged in September 2016. Happy as Larry!
