@Ree723:I totally agree! I met my Fiance in China too, we were recruited by the same company in Beijing at the same time. I came from Australia, him from the UK so no way we would have met otherwise.

My sister also met her now-husband travelling in Asia. TRAVEL TRAVEL TRAVEL!

Fabulous stories everyone! I love them!

I met my Fiance at Walmart. Yes, Walmart. (:

Background on that: I was 19, still living at home, and bored like crazy so I decided to go into a yahoo chat room. I’m not the type of person who uses chat (heck, even at 24 now, I’m just getting used to forums!), and got rather intimidated by the FLOOD of messages I was getting. I signed off and decided to go find a friend to hangout with. Well, the next time I signed onto my Yahoo Messanger account, I had a few add requests. I added them, and one turned out to be my Fiance. He began talking to me, and I have to admit I was probably pretty rude to him ( I kinda figured most guys on the internet were pervs…I was young and had never met anyone ‘online’ before). He was always very gentelmanly, though, and it got to the point where we talked nearly every night for months. About eveything…I mean, other people we were interested in, family, everything! So then he convinced me to meet him. At Walmart (his hometown is 30 minutes from mine, and was so small it didn’t even HAVE a Walmart…lol). So I grabbed my best guy friend and told him to stay back and watch and make sure nothing bad happened to me. Welllll. We waited there for five minutes…and I chickened out and made my guy friend take me home. When I logged into Yahoo that night, I thought Fiance was going to be super angry…but he wasn’t, remarkably. He laughed it off and said he understood. So I agreed to reschedule…and this time I did show up. And it took about three more times of hanging out with him before I was completely, totally, and utterly smitten with the guy. Have been ever since! So now, when I see the Walmart smiley face…I just have to smile. Lol!

He was my boss at a summer job I used to have. We hooked up during my last summer there – and then I left the country for a couple of years. We hooked up again right when I got back!

I had went out with a few guys I met on a free dating site. None of them worked out. I had just been dumped and decided to peruse the guys on the Yahoo dating site. One really cute guy caught my eye. I signed up for a free trial to send him a message.

And NO, that guy was not my fiance. But my fiance had spotted me and sent me a message. He was cute, but I wondered, should I be talking to him when I was really interested in the other guy? So I messaged my fiance back anyway, and the original guy didn’t respond til a month later. I had already went out on a date with my fiance at that point, and didn’t think about the original guy at all after that!

Our first date was in the middle of a December snowstorm. We met in front of a book store, then went out to an Italian restaurant. It went okay, nothing spectacular. But we kept in touch and just kept dating after that…

We both were in the same summer short-term consulting program during graduate school… We actually had an orientation with assigned seats next to one another!

I met my Fiance at cheap, dirty dive bar!  Well, actually, we “re-met” at that bar through a mutual friend about 10 years after we had intially met.   I was 27 and he was 36.   About a month before I had been at the house of my friend’s mother and was joking about how my friend and I would have to find a divorcee since all the good guys had married the wrong women.  I WAS joking (still wasn’t the greatest thing to say), BUT lo and behold, a month later I met my Fiance, who was divorced!  lol.

At the rock climbing gym.  Only place I know where it’s socially acceptable (and expected) that you’ll stare at guys’ butts (since you’re below, holding the rope!)

I was 22 & he was 21 – we met in a local bar (in the bronx) but it turns out we know a ton of the same people from highschool/our hometown.We broke up then ran into each other 5yrs later at a concert at Madison Sq. Garden.

@ mslk116 – I know how you feel. Dating in NYC is a pain in the butt – yes, a lot of men over 30 are already taken – but don’t rule out divorcees. My friend is in a serious relationship with a guy who’s 37 & divorced, he’s amazing and I’m so happy for her.

My fiance and I both participate in theater.  We were cast as Audrey and Seymore (the romantic leads) in the musical Little Shop of Horrors and I just knew from the moment I met him at our first rehearsal that we were going to make some magic together, both onstage and off.  We started dating almost immediately, moved in together 4 months later, got engaged 8 months later, and we will be getting married on the 2 year anniversary of our opening night.

I’m 30….and fiance is actually over 4 years younger than me! You will be surprised by how many younger guys also like older girls! I’ve always had a thing for younger guys though, and guys around my age. There are still plenty of guys in their 30s single!

Anyways, I met my fiance online…on plentyoffish…it really doesn’t depend on what online dating site it is: I met a boyfriend on eharmony, others have met fiances on JDate or Match….. It’s almost like real world, where it just really depends on the “right” person…you have just as much chance online as in the real world…

We met up 2 days later in a public place after just IMing a little bit one night….and it was special from the moment we met, even online… We are both shy btw.
