I met my Fiance at a silly job I had when I was 18. He instantly became my best friend. We were both in relationships at the time, and as both of our relationships ended, through consoling eachother, we realised, that we had fallen in love… that was 9 years ago and the rest is history.
But 30 is nothing! My mom is 45 and I believe she will find her Mister Right! Just when you stop looking, you’ll meet him!

My FH and I met in high school. We were both very shy so after months of smiling at each other in the hallway I realized I needed a date to the junior formal so I IMed him. He chickened out at formal and didn’t work up enough courage to ask me out. So he called me the day after to ask me out and we have been together ever since. We have been together for 7.5 years now and will be getting married in August 2011!
Thank goodness I stepped out of my own comfort zone and made the first move or we might still just be smiling at each other.

I’m not sure my meeting story will help you out, but Mr. Library and I met in middle school! We hated each other, but started to come around freshman year of high school. By sophomore year, we were dating. We’ve been together ever since!

I met my SO at his work. I was buying my first place and he worked at the bank where I did my mortgage. I kept making silly excuses to make appointments with him and finally asked him out in a thank you card for all his hard work, once our deal was closing out and I would no longer need to see him. He took me up on the offer and we’ve been together ever since. It will be 2 years this month, and we bought a home and moved in together this past May.

Another vote for Match.com!
About a month and a half before I signed the papers to finalize my divorce, I got on Match because I was worried that the dating pool would be pretty slim, so I was checking out the kinds of guys that were on there. (I was also checking out the women’s profiles too, to size up the “competition.” What can I say; it was a period of low self-esteem for me!) Anyway, I saw my guy’s profile and thought to myself, “Wow! He’s cute! And he sounds really smart and funny!” His profile stuck out more than anyone else’s, and I made a mental note of his profile name so I could come back when my divorce was final.
I was so worried that he’d take his profile down before then! I waited exactly one week after signing my divorce papers (for propriety’s sake 😉 ) and I sent him a message via Match. It took him two long weeks to reply! I’d thought he wasn’t interested and I was really disappointed, but he finally replied and the rest is history, pretty much!
I actually had a date with someone else the day after our first date (yeah, I kinda packed my kid-free weekends ::blush:: ), but I’d already planned to end things with the other person by that time. After my first date with my Fiance, though, I lost interest in everyone else. Neither one of us saw anyone else after that, although we didn’t make things really “committed” and “official” (as SO’s) until almost a year later.
I have saved all of our Match messages and FB messages and other e-mails, and I love to re-read them. I love our story so much, so thanks for reading it, if you’ve made it this far! Oh, and I’m 33 and he’s 37.

We met in grade school though he was a year ahead of me. We were actually friends in high school and ran with the same crowd but there was nothing romantic there and completely lost touch. Fast forward TWENTY YEARS and we meet again because he friended me on facebook. We started facebook chatting and there was an instant connection. He asked me out and now we will be married two months before our one year anniversary!! We did not waste time! lol

He accidently got on Match.com…He was working on the other side of the country (back home he would have only been 45 min away) and some guy in the hotel had left the computer at the Match site. Hubby thought “what the heck” and put himself on there, WITHOUT a picture. I found him and liked his screen name (COWBOY) naturally I thought “oh! finally! a cowboy!!!” …nope, that was just his dog’s name…the dog had been named by the dog breeder’s grand daughter, and my guy promised her that the puppy would keep its name…
He was 33 then, I was 26. He’s never been married before (and won’t be again!) and he has no baggage. He’s got the biggest heart, and I’m more than blessed to have him. So no, the good ones are NOT all taken…just this one 😉

This is what I wrote on my wedding website..I was 30 when we met..
It was 2008 and the end of another long Media Upfront party season – It was Thursday, May 15th – the final event of the week; the always so much fun FOX party at Wollman Rink in Central Park. After the presentation I headed there with my friends, as did Jeff (who I didn’t know at the time). After a few hours the party was in a full swing with food, drinks and dancing. I was on the dance floor with my co-workers when all of a sudden a very handsome guy walks over and says “Hi, what’s your name?”. My response: “Lauren, what’s your name”. For the rest of the night Jeff and I danced, talked and laughed – From that night on we were inseparable.
The funny part of the story is that it really wasn’t Jeff who was trying to meet me – he had a co-worker who wanted to meet me and he was supposed to be the “wingman” and help his friend talk to me. But I guess the second Jeff said “Hi” to me, I didn’t even notice anyone else was there – We often joke he’s the worst wingman ever and “He had me at hi”.
Something else that we also laugh about is that about a year earlier, Jeff and I had been briefly introduced at another work function – I remember thinking he was cute, but was jokingly warned to stay away because he was too young! I guess we were just meant to be!

I was 16 and he was my supervisor at Eckerd Drug (now RiteAid) and married. I had such a ridiculous crush on him back then. Years went by, i got married and we didn’t see each other, even around town. (Turns out my ex-husband was jealous because future husband was a great friend and listener and did some super nasty and awful things. So FH kept his distance)
Fast-forward 2007 – We both end up stopping at a Wawa (that we normally don’t go to) for cash. (Him for pool night and me for the sitter) and I run smack into him! *literally*. I almost knocked us both over. I was so excited to see him but I was running late so I asked him if he was in the phonebook. He said yeah, thinking another 10 years would go by and I called him the following week to have catch-up drinks.
Now we’re together, we’re happy and some people think our story is romantic. some people think our story is weird. (He’s 17 years older than me. but my parents are 18 years apart themselves).
But I tell everybody… “Think whatever you like, but it’s OUR story!”

My fiance and I met at a bar (i know I know, classy) I was with some friends and it turned out that my friend knew him and his friends and everyone began to mingle. He started to talk to me and I could tell he was somewhat interested. At the end of the night, his friends and him were heading out for late night pizza and he invited me. I told him I was driving everyone home so I wouldn’t be able to make it. (I was not about to chase after a guy I hardly knew at 2am) He never asked for my number either. The next night (sunday night) I checked my e-mail and saw that he found my on Myspace (back when it was popular) we exchanged messages and he asked me out. I’m glad he didn’t ask me for my number that same night, it would have felt so typical.
I was in the dating scene for a while, I highly recommend trying to meet people through friends. If they are ever throwing parties or some sort of get together, try to be there. Netwiorking is huge. You never know who will show up. You don’t have to make it known that you are in need of a man. Just be happy and guys will come your way
