I met mine on MySpace in 2006. Super random and we lived 12 hours apart. He was just trying to get me to listen to his band and I was smitten. Him, not so much. But we ended up getting close and meeting about six months after we started talking. I moved here a year later. We were 18, had just graduated high school, and had no intention of ending up where we are now, but life is funny and I can’t imagine being with anyone else. We were each other’s first “real” relationship so we learned as we went but we figured it out!

Funny enough, most of our friends who are in happy relationships either met on POF or in bars. So that is totally possible!

I met my fi serving food to the homeless. probably the best place to meet the man of your dreams. I knew right away he was a kind and generous man. It was love at first sight. We smiled at each other for weeks across the room and I kept wondering why he wouldn’t come introduce himself (thought maybe he was taken or uninterested) turns out he was too nervous to approach me. He said a couple times he started to but started sweating and hands shaking so he kept dodging me. Eventually I introduced myself and we hit it off immediately. He’s the most wonderful man in the world

Twitter. I thought she was someone else and tweeted her by accident. Best mistake I’ve ever made 🙂

This thread is under 20s age category…. I’m not 20s age Bee, I’m 30s age Bee. It is okay to answer this thread? Lol!

I met my husband because we live in ‘the hood’ together…. 4 years ago when I first moved to this neighborhood, that was how I met him…. Our distance was ridiculously close, like 5 minutes within walking distance from his apartment to my apartment….. So there, he is ‘the guy in the hood’, and I’m ‘the girl in hood’. He’s the “Street” guy, and I’m the “Street’ girl. What a match eh, Lol!…. Well, we married now. And last time I asked if he happy in our mariage, he still said he is ‘happy’.

Fiance and I met on the online date website “plenty of fish”. It has a bad reputation but it worked for us! 🙂

I FIRST met my Fiance on my first day of school in America (came from Korea at age 11). He was the only other person that was Korean in my school and the teacher placed me with him thinking he could help me since I did not speak any english at that time. He cannot speak Korean…After 5th grade we went to same middle school and high school but never crossed paths. It was senior year when my friends and his friends became friends and decided to go to prom together. He asked me to go to prom with him because he didn’t have a date and i said yes. We got closer through prom prep, prom and all the hanging out. He asked me out a week after our high school graduation and we’ve been together since then. He is my first boyfriend and I got lucky with my wonderful Fiance. This will be our 8th year together and 15 years since I’ve met him.

We met online. He was apparently about to delete his account though cause he kept meeting girls who just wanted sex. Turns out we went to the same college at the same time. The college was pretty big but knowing we were only a building apart for over two years. We finished our last year of college together. My family is very against the online stuff so we said we met at college.

I met my fiancé at our old job. I was the youngest working in the office; all of my older colleagues would always try pairing me with their sons or young members of their church but I always graciously declined because that would be awkwaaard lol sooo one day, they saw him sitting in the lounge for an interview and a couple of them went out to greet & get the scoop on him then encouraged me to go speak smh I walked by all cute & what-not, looked at him with a smile & said, “hey!” he glanced u with those dreamy chocolate eyes and said…”sup” -_- lmbo!! I then went back to my cubicle. The next week after his job training, he would always make up excuses to come over near my area and chat it up with my “neighbor” and make little remarks on our conversations causing outbursts of laughter. One day he forgot his lunch at home & I had an extra can of soup in my drawer so I gave it to him with a Tupperware container & plastic spoon. He took me out to Firebirds for my birthday [1st date] He told me that I’d be his wife on the 2nd date; I replied with “you must be crazy!” well look at us now 🙂

I actually lived in the same city as Fiance for 10 years before we knew each other. Our fathers had the same barber, we went to the same dentist, we knew the same people…yet we never crossed paths/ His older brother was actually a close friend of mine way back when! Then one day a mutual friend suggested that Fiance contact me on Myspace. And the rest is history.

I met my fiancé on a dating site (okcupid). We texted for a few months, had a few video chats/phone calls, and then got together. It was very early on that we could both tell that there was something good going on between us. I moved in with him after about six months of being inseparable and we continued to grow our relationship this way. He proposed in December after being together/living together for a little over three years.

<br />It surprises me at the number of people I know who have met their SO on the internet. I suppose we are getting to a point where it becomes a rather convenient tool to meet people outside of your specific location. For example, my fiancé and I only lived about 45 minutes away from each other; however, the chances of us actually ever “bumping into” each other were slim.

<br />I think the main piece of advice that I can give to you is to not give up or get discouraged. There are a lot of different sites (and a lot of different people) out there in this big world; it definitely makes sense to have to hunt for mr. perfect. If you have the time, you could try to use a site like Meetup.com, which allows you to join a group(s) that is in/around your area to meetup to do this/that. That is an easy way to get to know some people in your area in person and skipping the whole “searching for mr. right” online. I still recommend using the online sites as a tool — there are a lot of us out there who have gone through many frogs to get to our prince; keep your chin up! <3

We had a class together! It was like 100 people and he showed up late and I just about died when he walked in he was so cute haha. But the professor had us all introduce ourselves so he noticed me and literally chased me down after class! It turns out he was friends with my friends boyfriend and she got him to get SO my number. We knew we were getting married after about a month of dating!
