    We met at Starbucks. I was working there and he had previously worked there and was someone who, at the time, was coming in every day to write. I thought he had kept coming because had a crush on me because he was always there when I worked.

    Well, technically we met AT a bar, but we met out with mutual friends. Wish I could mark both.

    We met at a bar, but that sounds so trashy! Haha, it’s actually a really cool place that has live bands every weekend. My girlfriend knew his buddy so the four of us all hung out and listened to the band while having some drinks. Before I left Darling Husband melted my heart and said, “I need your number because I just have to take you on a real date!” We went out for dinner the next night and have been together ever since πŸ™‚

    We met both at my work and a bar.  Where I currently work is a restaurant/nightclub, I work on the restaurant side.  One night after work I went over to the night club with a coworker for drinks and he was out with some friends.  We got to talking and found we had some things in common, he and his friends took us out for breakfast before I went home and after breakfast when he was dropping me off at my car he asked for my phone number.

    At work. It was definitely not love at first sight; I didn’t care for him as much. LOL

    Fast forward, we’re getting married in 4 months. My family likes him (my dad never liked anyone I dated). It’s funny even my old manager also likes him and that we’re togther. She always said “he really love you”, “that is love”, etc.

    We met at a mutual friend’s birthday party at a bar called “Chapel.” The name of the bar is so fitting!! πŸ™‚

    We met through ICQ (an online messenger). He saw in my profile that I was studying in the same field his Dad teaches at the college, so he asked me if I had him as a professor. πŸ˜›

    We met through our work at the time. He worked in a different branch and we met at one of the few statewide conference we had.

    @bakerella: yours is my favorite story ever πŸ™‚

    My family moved from one house to another in Napa when I was a freshman in high school, and my (now FI) neighbor boy was one of my first friends in the neighborhood. He is 2 years older than me, and he always had a girlfriend, but supposedly always had eyes for me :). He invited me to a bunch of parties that he would have when his parents were out of town, and I was just the neighbor girl that got dragged everywhere! At the end of my sophomore year, he and I started dating. 

    We took a break when he went to the military, and I went to college, but rekindled our relationship when I moved back home right around the same time that he did. 

    It was all meant to be! πŸ™‚

    In bed.

    It’s not as bad as it sounds, I swear. I was at a college party in an apartment-style dorm with a girlfriend and we were too tired (read:drunk) to keep partying so we found an bedroom and went to sleep. Half an hour or so later a guy comes in and starts trying to get us out of his bed. My friend left, I was too stubborn so I stayed, and we ended up watching zombie movies for the rest of the night. Nothing went on other than movies and talking, it was really nice. He was a gentleman; didn’t take advantage of the drunk girl in his bedroom.

    We started seeing each other a few days later and were an official couple after 2 months.

    My roommate was dating his roommate at the time.  But we did meet for the first time at a bar.  I had also seen him around campus because we went to the same university for music.
