    In line for a concert.

    I used to do the groupie thing in my early twenties so I went to shows alone and worked my way backstage/on the bus. At this particular show I arrived very early the morning of the show to hang out around the venue as the band arrived. My husband also happened to be there early to be first in line. He and his friends saw me walking through the parking lot and he made them stop the car so he could stare at me. 

    His friend approached me first a while later and struck up a conversation then my husband kind of skidded on over. We spent the day together and he invited me out after the show – I lied and said I had to work the next day and left thinking that was that. The next day he internet stalked me and found my social media.

    londongirl1988 :  At work, and we still work together.

    We had started flirting and then on a team building event we ended up going out for drinks after everyone else went home, and ended up sleeping together. Could have been a real awkward situation had we not started dating and ultimately getting married lol.

    He was/is a singer in a nightclub! We locked eyes across the stage, and when he was done, I went up to him and told him he did a great job. 

    We’ve been together for 5 years, and get married next September! laughing

    We met at university, when I was on an exchange semester. My family and friends told me not to fall in love when I was away (on the other side of the world).. but I never thought I actually would!

    At work! He was a driver at the company for a year before I got hired as admin. My (older female) coworkers would always tell me how cute and funny he was, and when I finally got to meet him about 3 weeks after I started I thought “oh he IS cute” and then he complimented my shoes and the rest is history LOL

    I dated his best friend in high school 🤷🏻‍♀️ Was still trying to get back with said friend at that friends 21st birthday party, Darling Husband drove both of us home separately since friend had a Girlfriend still and he was trying to make sure we didn’t do anything stupid while drunk. Next day he messaged me to ask how I was doing and the rest is history.

    We met on Plentyoffish. We chatted for about 2 months before we finally me, I tried to shake him a few times before then haha. He lived a couple hours away and I had been in a short LDR just before and wasn’t interested in doing that again. Plus he owned a business where he lived and I wasnt interested in moving… he convinced me that I was getting a little ahead of myself and that we should just meet and see what happens. Well, I did LDR and moved haha. He is so completely worth it though!

    • Wedding: May 2019

    We met through mutual friends! 

    He was interested in me right from the beginning, and I did think he was attractive, but I had already been in a relationship for 2+ years when we met. We all continued to hang out in the same circle of friends though, and when I finally ended my relationship 2.5 years later, my now-husband messaged me a couple weeks later and invited me out for a drink as friends. Now we’re married! 🤯

    Met FH through a hobby meetup. Someone from the group brought him as a guest and I was totally enamored when I saw him across the room! After the meetup, I contacted all of my friends asking for anything they knew about him. He wound up messaging me a few hours later and the rest is history!

    We met online/through my friend. My friend was talking to him on AIM, she was dating his friend online at the time. She showed him my picture and he told my friend that I was his wife. We ending up talking through AIM all night and then disconnected for a few years. Then one day I was talking to that same friend on AIM I asked her what she was doing and she said “talking to Cory” and I was all “my husband Cory?!! Lol” she said yes and gave me his screen name. 5 months later I flew out to California to meet him in person and we’ve been together ever since.
