    • Wedding: March 2009

    I met Darling Husband through friends. Our friends used to throw bonfires at their house all the time (I was friends with the bride, he was friends with the groom and we were both in the wedding party). We had both been to one there before, but hadn’t noticed each other due to the large number of people and the fact that we’d had dates with us. The second time we went, we both made plans with other people that fell through. Neither of us wanted to go alone, so we almost decided against going. However, something told me (and him) to go ahead and go- it could be fun, plus I’d be with friends. So, I went and he did as well. As soon as we met, we were hooked. Spent all night (I mean this literally) talking and playing music and getting to know one another.


    He met my parents the next week, I met his the week after that, and almost 2 years later we’re deliriously happily married! 🙂

    We don’t remember exactly when we met, but the first time we were in a room together was driver’s ed in high school. We hung out with the same group of friends who all took Japanese as their foreign language. We were the odd ones out because I took Spanish and he took German. Whenever the group got going on something that happened in Japanese class we talked to each other. We also ended up with assigned seats next to each other in study hall and he talked my ear off. We started dating the summer after that study hall when we were 16.

    I met mine at church, so I put through friends since I was technically visiting that particular youth group WITH a friend. I just wanted to comment and say that I am surprised at the percentage of women who met their SO online! I didn’t realize it would be so large! Technology is an amazing thing.

    We met in college..more specifically, Facebook! We happened to join our school’s network on the same day, started talking and the “rest is history”!


    Interesting how many people met on Craigslist. I had no idea that was a “thing”!

    We met on PlentyofFish 3 and a half years ago.  I messaged him because I thought it was really cute but he was dating someone at the time, then I started dating me ex again.  We kept in touch through emails and text messages for over 6 months till things ended with both of our ex’s and the next week we went out for the first time.  We’ve been inseperable ever since!

    I voted work, but we didn’t work together. Darling Husband works at a bank and I went in to apply for a mortgage to buy my first place and he was my advisor.

    I’m not sure where to vote! We met through friends, but talked through AIM and MySpace. Wow… that makes me feel old. Over 8 years of knowing each other and 6 years of dating. Can’t wait to add on (blank) years of marriage after next year!

    At a bar!  We were chatting and I said I had to go – he said “If I buy you a drink will you stay?”.  11 months later we were married!

    @PocahontasP:  that was like my Fiance and I when we used to wwork together. I couldn’t stand him!!! And I would be annoyed at his stupid jokes and say, “ugh I hate you!” And every time he would reply, ” hate can be confused for love, you watch we’re gunna get married.”
