sarabee:  We had a mutual friend (actually, he was interested in her, before we met, but she kept turning him down). We actually met at a hookah lounge. I didn’t like him at first, but he kept talking to me. Then suddenly, I realized I actually did, and he asked me on a date the next evening. We have another friend that always calls him “cradle-robber” because I was 19 and he was 25 when we met.

sarabee:  I met my Fiance on Eharmony.  I found that when you actually pay for a dating site, the guys are not just interested in sex or flings as I think they would be had it been one of the free sites.  I really recommend eharmony because they make sure you have a real connection and the steps you go through make it easy to leave at any time because you learn things slowly.  I highly recommend it!  And you can find coupon codes etc. to make it a lot cheaper.  We used to be embarrassed to tell people about it but then I realized that was stupid.  I met a guy at church and that relationship was horrible.

sarabee:  We met in high school. In a history class. He sat in front of me and let me copy off his work, he got bullied a bit (he always laughed it off), I stuck up for him and started eating lunch at his table and we had friends in common. Started hanging out a lot and he became my best friend. 3 years later we started dating and 5 years after that, here me are.

  • Wedding: April 2015 - City Hall NYC

We met just about 9 years ago, March 2006.  We both owned Scions at the time and we started “talking” through a Scion website (Scion is a car btw) and decided to set up a Scion meet so all of us from the same area can meet.  So we went back and forth on the website for a bit and then finally met up with a bunch of Scion people. When I met my now Fiance I had zero romantic interest in him, he was 18 and I was 25 at the time and I also had a bf.  We ended up becoming really good friends and hanging out a lot and didnt realize that we were meant to be together until a year later.  Now we are happily engaged and have a great life together….and I still have a Scion 🙂

Mine was a blind date… so I’m no help in the “where do I look for guys” department. But it is VERY true that it happens when you least expect it.

sarabee:  My fiancé and I met on plenty of fish as well!!  Just listen to your gut!!  There will be a lot of weeding out to do with online, but it is possible to someone!  We didn’t me until our 30’s. Have fun and enjoy life. The right person will come into your life at the right time.

I met my fiance on Okcupid. I never thought I would have found my future husband on there, since 99% of my encounters on that site were awful. But I’m so glad I gave it another try.  Our first date went really well, and by the second we were pretty much in love.

sarabee:  I met my significant other when I was 15…he’s my stepdads best friend. We had just moved to Kansas and they started working at the same company at the same time and became friends. I had a little schoolgirl crush on him that started the first time I met him. Lol! Obviously he’s older than me, and he was married at the time. A whole lot has happened in the past 9 years(almost 10 Now), and things just sorta fell into place last year and I feel I found the one I was meant for. And by some awesome act of God, he feels the same. Lol. And it hasn’t even become weird with my dad. Lol. When I very first mentioned something, it was almost as if he was waiting for it and had this whole little speech ready for me. Lol!

I met my fiance online 5 years ago and we’ve been dating for 4. It was a free site (I believe it was called woome.com from what I can remember) lol But he messaged me first and we talked for a full year before we met in person. He lived 4 and a half hours north of me at the time and he was just about to go into an apprenticeship in another province for a job when we first started talking. So we had no choice but to wait to meet in person anyways. We spent that year really getting to know each other and we built a very strong emotional and intellectual connection. When we finally met in person it felt like we had known each other all our lives. And now we just got engaged a month ago and we are planning our wedding for May of next year 🙂 I’m 25 and he is 30.

Online dating can be great because it gives you a chance to meet and talk with people that you probably wouldn’t otherwise have the opportunity to meet in real life. But in online dating, you REALLY need to take the time to ask personal questions and get to know who you’re talking to and if their wants and goals match yours. And if you feel that they match and you like their personality then you can give them the privilege of meeting you in person to get to know you further and you them. You need to treat it like pre-interviews almost and be very picky. You have to pick out all the frogs to get to your prince, so to speak.

I do agree though… there are a lot of creeps on online dating sites and they use them to pray on vulnerable young women who are looking for their forever partner. It took me a few tries to find the right one, but once I found him I was so happy. I found the kind of man who is very rare in this day in age and I know he will love me forever. I know he will be a loving and devoted husband and father to me and to our children and I couldn’t be happier!

I know it can be disheartening in the process of trying to find that special someone to share your life with… But just trust that everything happens for a reason and when they’re supposed to. You will find him soon, just be patient and keep your eyes open 🙂

Mine I met at Graduate film school. What about a hobby or meet up group? Keep socializing in groups whenever you can. A lot of people I know seem to have met their husbands at a party or gathering.

My best friend and I always went on weekend walks. She brought along a friend this one time (my now fiance) and from that moment forward, I knew I had to get to know him more. I remember whispering to my best friend as he walked ahead of us to answer a call “I like him!!” I was instantly attracted to him… 3 years later we are engaged.

I met my guy in theater. I was cast in a play and he was the Assistant Director.

Theater is a great place to meet men keeping in mind that 80% of them will be gay.
