    We met at a lake for an open water triathlon swim practice.  It was 6:30 AM: no makeup, hair in pigtails, swim cap…he called me the next day!

    @bobsoon2bewife9887:  We met in college and were merely acquaintances.  We started to get to know each other better after college when we were at the same party.

    • Wedding: November 1999

    We started dating when I was 16 and he was 15. His family came to the summer campground that my family stayed at when he was in middle school. I think he originally played dolls (excuse me ‘WWF action figures!’) with my little bros. Then he grew up and we took a liking to one another 🙂 Chatting on AIM and calling one another on our moms’ bag cell phones isn’t quite romantic, but it’s a fun story.

    We worked together at the same restaurant waaaayyyy back when…went on a few dates, but I was still stuck on the Boyfriend or Best Friend I moved up to Pcola for.  Then he became my second Boyfriend or Best Friend ever, but we broke up…and finally reunited (it will be 7 years in January).  The restaurant we worked together at is acutally where we will be having our rehearsal dinner at (it is an Irish Pub, that eveyrone around here loves and it fits in with our St Patty’s day wedding).

    We met at the Catholic Student Center at our university…we didn’t get together until years later, though.

    We were three of the same classes our junior year of high school. Our school was fairly big but he happened to be hanging out with one of my friends occasionally and was brought into our huge group whenever we had a big gathering.

    Cinco de Mayo pub crawl! Our friends knew each other, so he wasn’t just some random guy.

    OKCupid.com!  Thank god I finally succumbed to peer pressure from my friends and joined the site, or I’d be missing the best part of my life. 🙂

    On holiday in China!  Small group tour – 23 days travelling from Beijing to Hong Kong, it was love at first sight, despite the food poisoning, overnight trains, lack of showers, and a plethora of respiratory illnesses due to the “weather” (i.e. pollution).

    A long distance relationship between Australia and America ensued and now several years later, here we are – married with baby #1 on the way!

    I met my husband on Final Fantasy XI. Neither of us were looking for someone/a relationship, we just became friends on the game which turned into talking online off the game then phone calls and visits. We have been together for 6 years now, married for 1 month. Very long distance but very worth it!

    We worked a seasonal job on Mackinac Island. He worked in a different store, but the same company as me. My first time meeting him was out on the street, but a mutual friend, but even if I hadn’t met him then I would have met him later because everyone who works together in the same company lives together, parties together, etc…plus we hang out at each others jobs…
