I don’t understand any of this. 

You don’t have to have a how we met section. You have your own free will to decide on that. I mean you don’t have to have a website but anyway….

Also what is wrong with how you met? It’s super cute to have met in your teens and still be together now! Really super cute proper love story. Is it because you met online? I mean it’s 2018… this is not a shocker to people now. 

I can see literally no issues here and my advice is not to create a representation of yourself that isn’t real. You met online. Nothing wrong with that, so say that! It all sounds lovely – be proud 😃 xxxx

I just say skip it! It’s been too long to make up a fake story so I’d just dismiss it. You don’t want to lie on the website. All that being said… we agreed after our first date that we would never tell our parents (or anyone) that we met on Tinder. We have a fake story and VERY few people know the truth. (We met at 18 & 19 and were still living with our very conservative parents. They would have been appalled by the idea of how we really met… regardless I love our story and we actually had a very sweet and innocent first date).

My husband and I met on Ok Cupid and on our wedding website I just said “we met through the magic of the Internet” and went on to give the highlights of our first date, because that was pretty much it for us. I love your story and don’t find it weird at all, but as PPs have said, you certainly don’t need to include it if you don’t want to.

ase1218 :  Just delete that section. People will be like “oh her website template must not have included that.” That’s what I always think lol

Every week l learn some new thing that’s become a thing.

Just don’t put anything. People who you want to know presumably already do, and others really won’t care.

Tbh i usually cringe when i see those sorts of pages on wedding websites. The people who know and love you will probably already have an idea of your background as a couple.

Apparently I’m the odd one out because I love hearing about how couples met (and there have been several popular threads here dedicated to that), and reading those bio things on websites. I don’t have to be super close to a couple to care about them or think their story is cute. And I think it’s funny how the literal point of a wedding is to publicly declare your love and devotion to someone, yet telling people how you met is sappy, cringy, and over the top?…lol, whatever…People attend weddings to celebrate and support the relationship, so it’s only natural for them to want to know where/how it started.  

But yes, you don’t HAVE to put anything on your page, and I doubt anyone will think it’s weird…but as I said, it’s only natural for people to want to know so it might be nice to put something even if the details are scarce. If it’s any help though, I think your story is suuuuuper cute 🙂 As you said, times were different back then, and you’re both in your 30’s now so obviously things worked out really well…you should feel proud about that!

Your story is a lot like ours. We meet at a friend’s going away party in 2001 at age 15 &16. The friend had met my husband online somehow!

We were friends for years and here we are. Best friends that fell in love and lives happily ever after. 

I laugh as I knew him before we had cell phones and he had to call me on the land line

Skip! Those who want to know either already know or will ask.

This also makes me miss the old AOL/AIM days of the internet. Much simpler times lol.
