    • Wedding: August 2010

    We worked at a grocery store together in high school, but in different departments, so we knew each other but didn’t really talk or see each other much. My best friend ended up dating his best friend, so we were officially introduced that way. Our friends broke up a few months later, and we have been together for 7 years (since we were 17!) and are getting married next year πŸ™‚

    @lightmist:  By WOW do you mean Warcraft, or are you surprised at the results of this thread? Haha

    In highschool through mutual friends (: We went to schools in different towns so I don’t think we would have met otherwise. We started dating about a week after we met.

    • Wedding: July 2013

    We worked together and I could. Not. Stand. His. Guts!!! I would actually go home to my ex and tell him how awful Fiance was and how when he is there I don’t want to go to work. Lol after my bf and I brokeup, at a coworkers bday party one night Fiance started chatting with me, then I requested him on fb a week later, we exchanged numbers through inbox a few days after that and we moved in together after talking for 2 months!

    @lightmist:  Lol! Just checking πŸ˜‰ My Fiance plays warcraft as well. Sometimes when I want him to stop playing, I’ll wait until he leaves the room and put his character on his mount and fly him waaaay up high and then make him fall off. He usually gets the hint πŸ˜›

    Yay…we met 11 years ago today!!!

    We were in high school…I had just moved to his town.  And I saw him at a 420 party LOL.  We ended up sleeping on opposite sides of the couch, woke up and he had moved to another chair and was sitting quietly while everyone else slept.  He gave me a ride home…where we stopped at this random carnival in a parking lot…and it was alll weeirrdd.  From the very first moment.

    Later I asked my friend who was hosting the party for his number and called him about a class assignment…I hadn’t realized he was in my english class until after the party LOL.

    • Wedding: November 2013

    @kateisstoned:  It’s a strange story.. My best friend actually introduced me to my ex (freshman year of high school). There was a girl that was flirting with him on MySpace (remember when people actually used that website? LOL) so I added her boyfriend (stupid drama thing to do). I actually became friends with him, one of his friends, and then lastly his other friend (my FH). We’re now getting married on our 7 year anniversary this fall. I want to point out too that I didn’t even start “talking” to my now FH until a couple months after the ex and I broke up. When anyone asks, we usually just go with the short story of either MySpace/online or through a friend.

    • Wedding: December 2013

    Through friends. It wasn’t a set up or anything. He was dating someone at the time (but trying to get out of it). I met some friends, and they invited him along. He liked me from the start. After we’d hung out at a few more group social eventS he asked me out.

    • Wedding: November 2013 - St. Augustine Beach, FL

    I answered a Crisslist ad to rent a room, ended up dating the landlord instead.  Started hanging with the landord’s friends at downtown events and happy hours.  Made friends with another divorced lady as a result.  She and I hung out a few times.  One time we were hanging out downtown and she invited a guy friend (guy #1) of hers to come hang out with us and he brought a friend (guy #2).  When the guy #2 went to buy my girl friend a drink from the bar, he returned to find her making out with guy #1.  I ended up talking to guy #2 and we became Facebook friends the next day.  We have been seeing each other ever since.

    We met on OkCupid πŸ™‚ But we went to college together and had a bunch of classes and mutual friends so we probs SHOULD have met before (and likely did, even though we didn’t remember it after haha).
