Although I’m not married or engaged yet, we’re both fairly certain that we will eventually get married.

I met my BF in college. He was going back for his masters and I was finishing up my bachelors degree. We had a class together and one day he asked me to take notes for him while he went out of town. The rest is history. ๐Ÿ™‚

My advice to you is to get out. Take a class. Not necessarily a college course, but maybe a kick boxing, cooking or music class. Bonus points if it appeals to men. ๐Ÿ™‚

I met my husband on an online dating site. (Not E-Harmony) and It’s been the best thing ever! We talked on the site for a few nights then I gave him my messenger name and we spent everyday talking on there! After 6 months of dating, I packed up one day and moved an hour away from my hometown to be with him! (My parents didn’t like it!) On our one year “anniversay” of dating he propsosed! We’ve been married 2 months now! I’m 22 and he’s 45.

I met my boyfriend on a blind date. My sister’s mother in law gave my number out to some of her friends and I got some calls and went on some dates with several guys. My boyfriend was the one guy that I kept on going out with while the others just didn’t work out. My recommendation is to be open. Go on-line, have friends and family set you up (free dinners if nothing else – LOL), join clubs, go running in Central Park. Summer is a great time to be outdoors and you never know who you are going to bump into. Good Luck and try to enjoy the experince.

I’m 29, almost 30….we met in med school.  I have several friends in the same boat….my advice to them is usually to get out and do things like take a class per semester, go to book stores where you can sit and read, go to the gym….and I’ve even suggested eHarmony which usually is followed by some eye rolling….but honestly, I have a friend who just married a guy she met online.  It’s increasing in popularity.  Good Luck! And don’t worry about it.  It usually happens when you are not looking for it.  It did for me.

My FH was working as a radio DJ and I kept scoring prizes off him (not much to do at my job then obviously!).

Anyway, I saw a group wearing their brand clothing at a concert I was a bit tiddly at (read: a lot tiddly) and waltzed up and asked ‘who was Sam?’ – we became best mates soon thereafter and EVERYONE thought we were ‘friends with benefits’ (note: we weren’t, we both thought it was hilarious noone else could think of being platonic friends with someone of the opposite sex).

Hehe he fell in love with me and kissed me – I was really taken aback but returned the favour at the movies (Kung Fu Panda I do believe) – been together ever since!

I met my soon-to-be husband while traveling through China – we were on the same tour group and hit it off from the start!   After 3.5 weeks together, seeing each other at our worst (food poisoning, overnight 22 hour train journeys, no showers for two and three days at a time, various hacking coughs due to the pollution etc) we knew we were in it for the long haul.   Of course the fact that he’s Australian and I was just moving home to the States from having lived abroad in the UK and Australia for the previous four years made things a bit more complicated but now I’m back in Australia and we’re getting married next year.

My advice – TRAVEL!  See the world and you’ll meet some pretty awesome people (and maybe a potential husband) along the way!  ๐Ÿ™‚

I met mine a week before my 30th birthday, but we didn’t couple up till a year later.

We met through running the Marine Corps Marathon a few years ago.  He’s a Marine and they were getting a team together to run in aid of Toys for Tots charity, a couple of my co-workers were involved in the charity work but not capable of marathon-running and very kindly “voluntold” me to do it Smile

Pat took it upon himself to help me train (although i run marathons and half-marathons regularly anyway, i’m just too energetic, so i know full well what i’m doing) and i thought it was sweet cos he had this blatant crush on me.  He’s 41 and has been in the Corps for 20+ years and is very motivated and very loud and i’m a straightlaced stiff-upper-lip Brit so i kept trying to fend him off romantically.  He wore me down, and when he even came to see a rubbish chick flick just so he could spend time with me, i figured a relationship was worth a shot.
