How did you meet your SO?
I met my Fiance on craigslist! I posted an ad and he responded. I got his address and typed it into google maps to see where he was taking me – it was a dirt lot. So I blew him off the first night. But he was persistent and the next day we hung out. Turns out, his apartments were just so brand-new and nice that they didn’t show up on google maps. Good thing he wasn’t a serial killer! Been together 3 years and getting married next year 🙂

My ex introduced us! Happened to be one of his very good friends and it was a polite introductions, as in, I was talking to my ex and the friend (FI) walks up. We saw each other a couple times after that around school and became good friends. Two months later we were dating and I just knew he was the one. That was three years ago, getting married next year!

@kateisstoned: Hooray for CL! I too am thankful that he turned out to be my future husband and not a serial killer. Can’t believe how lucky I got. The dirt lot thing is pretty funny though. Almost 7 years later, we’ll be engaged officially this summer and planning on marrying in 2014!

You should have an option for “random.” Like met in the grocery line, on the bus, at the bookstore, etc.
We met randomly. He just started talking to me on the street. I thought he was cute, but that he was just going to be a vacation fling (we live in different countries). But whoops I fell in love with him.

My best friend’s now ex-fiance worked with my now Boyfriend or Best Friend and introduced us:)
And how is “Through friends” not an option on your poll? It’s a pretty common way of meeting people.
ETA: Good addition to your poll, hehe. Now I can vote:D

We met at a Secular Humanist /Atheist organization on campus at our university. He thought I was a grad student, I thought he was like 17, lol. Actually I was 18 and he was 20… engaged now, at 23 and 25, and definitely NEVER having a religious wedding 😉

@MrsSnowMountain: Dude, awesome.
We met in Tokyo – my school has a Japan campus, and his school sends their study-abroad-Japan students to it as well (since it’s well known and they’ve had less than 10 Japan students ever, I think.) So I picked school, but it was *awesome school.* We were placed in the same dorm for the semester.
End of the semester was super sad though, we kind of thought we’d never see each other again. Looks like we’re both a little more stubborn than we thought. (We now live together and are getting married this summer.)

@kateisstoned: Woohoo! I met my Fiance on Craigslist too, but I’m the one that responded to his ad! Apparently he was tipsy when he posted it, and it was seriously the funniest/cutest thing ever– I just couldn’t resist! We met up and hit it off– the rest is history 🙂
