I met my Fiance online.  Most people that used that website since though have had bad luck or ending up meeting people just looking for a booty call LOL.  I guess we both just got really lucky!

I met my fiance in our first week of grad school because we had a class together. He was apparently interested (I had no idea), but I had a boyfriend, so he didn’t try anything. Fast-forward four years, we had both been single for at least a year and it was my birthday, so he posted happy birthday on my Facebook and I replied with a “thank you,” and we struck up a conversation on facebook messenger and got to know each other better over the next month until we finally decided to meet up! I never imagined I’d be engaged to him two years later, but I’m definitely glad he decided to write that post.

You’ll find someone the minute you stop looking.

My fiance and I met at 14 years old at our local skating rink through a mutual friend at the time. He messaged me on Facebook a couple weeks later and we dated for a few months and broke up. What can you expect, we were in middle school! About a year later when we were freshmen in high school, we got back together and have been together ever since.

My best advice is to live your life and get involved with things you enjoy. For instance, if you love working out, join a gym, etc. Odds are, you may meet someone with simillar interests and passions. Even if you don’t meet someone to whom you are attracted, you may find yourself growing new friendships, which is never a bad thing.

My fiancee and I met back when we worked at Target. I was the front end manager and she came in to apply for a seasonal cashier position. She claims that she had noticed me there before and that’s why she wanted to apply :p

I was going through a rough time so I wasn’t looking for anything (especially considering I was her boss!) but she was persistent, though always respectful and sweet. She would ask me questions about myself, one thing being music in particular. My favorite band of all time is the Beatles and she admitted she never really listened to them before but would love to listen to their music with me. Then one night we worked together and she asked if I could wait until she was off at 8:15 (I was off at 8:00) because she had something to tell me. I was really curious so I waited for her after my shift. We walked out together and as we were about to part ways in the parking lot, she reached into her pocket, pulled out a little piece of receipt paper with a phone number written on it, and said “You may commence my Beatles education”. I was caught off guard and being a smart ass, I asked how much time she had. That’s when she looked into my eyes and said “All the time in the world..”. And that is the story of how my heart melted 🙂
