    I voted high school, but we actually met in elementary/middle school!  We weren’t friends until our senior year of high school though, and began dating 1 week before graduation!

    We met at a triathlon swim practice in a lake at 7:00 AM.  Swim cap, tri-suit, and no makeup…not my best look, but it worked!

    • Wedding: March 2012

    We dated for a few months in high school, and I “broke his heart.” Over the years when we would run into each other he would ask me out and I would say no. One time I said yes and that damn kid went ahead and made me fall in love with him.

    We met at a bar, actually. We were both friends with alot of the same people, but it was a long time before we even knew each other exsisted. And we are at some of the same events (a benefit for one friend, birthday parties, etc). We were at a bar when we met the first time. My boyfriend at the time introduced us (They were friends). I kind of ignored him. I broke up with my then boyfriend not long after that (we wanted differant things). Fiance and I were friends for a long time before we even thought about getting together.

    We met at a fashion show – 4 hours from where we both live. His band was providing the music and I walked in the show – we met at the afterparty.

    DH’s little sister & my sisters set us up.  It took us about 3 years to go from friendship to “love” level, but we eventually got there. lol

    You didn’t have an option for me to select, we met in elementary school! We were in the same 5th grade class & he was my first “boyfriend” back in those days! Even though we didn’t hang out anymore until after high school its still pretty neat to be able to say he was my first “Boyfriend”.

    @cyndistar3: Ummm…how do you know what anal beads look like in High Schooll?!?! I was so sheltered…

    We met online (OKCupid). His profile didn’t come up for a while because I had excluded smokers. I was bored one day and released all my filters (except age and distance) and he came up. He is the the poster child for what I find attractive, so I immediately “woo’d” him and the rest is history…

    I did not click an option because none of those apply. I guess the closest would be online? I put my phone on craigslist to sell and he bought it. He texted me after I met him to do the sale and asked if he could keep my number and continue talking to me πŸ™‚ weird story I guess.

    We met online! It seems like a lot more people I know have met online than the numbers in the article suggested.
