    • Wedding: May 2016 - Sussex, UK

    At a wedding. I worked with his cousin at the time and he had no plus one to take so I said yes at the last minute. We didn’t actually get together until a year later but j remember the moment I saw him and thinking he was hot!

    • Wedding: September 2019

    We met through our hiking group (which is a Meetup group). We both met early on in our involvement with the group, but then didn’t see each other again until 9 months later. In that time he went through a breakup of a long term relationship and I went through a brief relationship with another hiker, and we were both single. At least 4 other couples who met through our hiking group are now married, and there are many other long term relationships that have stemmed from the group as well!

    My partner is a musician I followed on twitter and had been a fan of for a while. He was struggling with depression and tweeted asking for advice. So I DM’d him with some stuff I’d learnt in therapy which helped. We shared some messages and I broke my arm and finger the same day and a month later he messaged me asking how I was doing and that he had been constantly thinking about messaging me but he’s a bad procrastinator and kept being distracted and asked for my number. 

    We met a couple of weeks later (he lived in another city further south to me) and he came up to London shaking like a leaf and was super nervous about our first date. We talked about pelicans and I moved in with him a month and a bit later and we’ve never looked back 3 years on.

    We met in high school 1997. He can tell you which class and everything but I do not recall haha He was a freshman and I was a sophomore. 

    Although we have loved each other since way back then (and have said so and I have all the letters he has written me over these 21 years), we didn’t start dating until March 2018 after we started hanging out more (we lived a state apart back then now just a town over) in December 2017. 

    He moved to my state for a job in 2018 and so we decided to give it a go and I am so in love and can hardly wait to marry this guy someday ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ˜Š

    • Wedding: February 2020

    He was my director. I was his leading actress. Cliché, maybe, but ours is quite an unusual form of that old story ๐Ÿ˜‰  we were good friends and knew we shared deep core values for quite a while before we were involved romantically.

    We met at through a friend while we were exchange students in Japan – different schools. The three of us spent the day together until I had to leave to teach a conversational English lesson in Shibuya. He lied and said he had something to do in Shibuya too, even though his stop was an hour in the other direction. My student didn’t show up so we went to a coffeeshop, I was telling him all the things I wanted to see in Japan before I left but I wasn’t sure how. He got my email through our friend and sent me an itinerary the next day, then proceeded to coordinate trains and etc to take me everywhere I wanted to go. By the time I went back to America, he was pretty well in love with me though it took me 15 years to fall for him. Since we lived on opposite ends of the country, we only really met up when we were traveling/living overseas, either traveling together or meeting up. He tells everyone I’m the woman of his dreams and he can’t wait to marry me. I’m so glad I wised up! <3
