At the place where I dance. Jim was a teacher and my mom had started dancing and she kept bugging me to go check it out and take some lessons. He wasnt my teacher but I met him and ended up dancing with him a few times here and there. He finally asked me (well he asked my mom first if he could ask me out ) to a salsa club and the rest is history!

I met Phil my freshman year of college. Our school requires you to live in the dorms that year. He was a junior and was an RA on the third guys floor of my dorm (each dorm has three floors for each gender). He was actually going out w/ this girl from his high school who lived on my floor, just a few doors down. They'd gone out for 3 years and finally broke up in the fall of my freshman year. I didn't really know him at first, but my suitemates hung out with his suitemates and eventually, they all paired off and we were basically the only two from our group of college friends left. It was pretty awkward at first since I lived not even 100 feet away from his ex, but I wasn't looking for a relationship and at the time didn't really care if I was just a rebound girl b/c we just had fun hanging out and were more like friends for the first few months. I lived in the same dorm my sophomore year. He moved into a house w/ his friends and his ex moved out of the dorms, having fulfilled the required two years. That was a relief until Phil's best friend and roommate at his new house decided it would be fun to go out w/ Britni, Phil's ex. So then it was weird again b/c Phil basically lost his best friend and roommate. Eventually this guy moved downstairs and now he's getting married to Britni, but hey....whatever...we don't need them as friends

I picked up Samson from the breeder. There were 6 puppies to choose from. He was the liveliest.

What?

I don´t have any significant other, I´m one of those unconventional conventionalists.

18 years ago, I was a 36-year old retired cop; I had worked for a PI company in "the big city" but a divorce led me to try Orange County...I walked in to the office and saw a poofy-haired 21-year old staring at me.....SHE WAS THE MANAGER.... we hated each other from the moment we locked eyes....

Fell in love within 6 months...BAW

I love hearing these stories too! I am going to elaborate a bit more on mine. I went to a bar after work to have a drink with friends. I DID NOT want to go. I was too tired, but I went anyway...and there he was. Time stood still. We have two children and have been married for seven years.

My friend is is in an awsome relationship with someone who she met crossing the street! You never know who's around the next corner. I know lots of people who have met their sig. other on Yahoo personals. You never know.

LOL, at wal mart 8 years ago, we both worked there, I was new, I was the photo tech for the 1 hour photo, she was a manager, and she lied and told me that I had to check my bag with her, after I did that she started flirting with me, my car wasnt running so that night I asked her for a ride home, and I fell asleep on the way home in her car, she thought I was weird for that. and then her car broke down at the house, and she had to stay a while, the rest is a dead man's party, who could ask for more?

I was at work and another co-worker was messaging with his friend. I butted into the conversation and he asked me out. Our first date was 15 hours long. We've been together almost 17 years.

At the restaurant we both worked at, I was a bartender and she was a waitress....
One night the whole gang from work, ended up going out for a drink (That's right, when you work at a bar, you go to another one to waste all your tips that same night) and there was this guy that really liked her (another waiter)she could not stand him, so she asked me if I could "stay close" just in case this dude would try something....after we got there, SHE bought me a shot of Jack Daniels and a Miller Lite beer.....after a few of those, well like they say the rest is history....we've lived happily ever after.
(I proposed after knowing her for 6 months....it just felt right.)

thats awesome! Hooray for age differences Tim and I have 12

Well to answer, I met my fiance (we're getting married in 29 days) right here on interference in the octagon bar
I had a boyfriend, we had been together for almost 3 years and he moved away for a little while to go to college.
He was the wrong person for me but I wouldnt admit it.
And then this bartender showed up in the "octagon bar" of bluecrackdom and I totally fell in love with him. We talked on the phone every day for hours.
He came to see me
I went to see him
He proposed
My parents love him
I moved from the west coast to the east coast
I think that about covers it
Oh and he's a hottie

i met mine stinking of sweat in a toothpaste stained t shirt (me) and he in equally revolting clothes after a few games of indoor soccer at the local indoor sports centre. my hair was dyed purple in a tragic accident, i was an art student then as well. he was studying Comp. Sci. guess it was meant to be.


my parents and aunt and uncle share the weirdest story though. dad and his brother roger moved out here form england as young lads wanting to party it up in sunny bondi. roger worked with my mum and one day said 'i'm having a bit of a party for the homeless, legless and classless poms (the house he was sharing had the unfortunate nickname of 'the refuge for destitute and protitute poms') would love you to come. etc. mum said ok. her and some friends arrived, she was introduced to roger's bro - my dad, and eventually they got married. roger meanwhile that night of the party was checking out this young nurse out here on a long working holiday from england as well, coincidentally, and said to mum and dad 'i'm going to marry that girl! what's her name?' he asked her out and the morning after their 3rd date roger came to work and said to mum 'i've proposed to her! she said yes!' mum did all the congrats etc and then laughed and said 'gee roger, your kids are going to have gorgeous red hair!' he looked stunned and said 'she's a redhead???' he hadn't seen her in daylight due to only 3 night time dates and was already smitten they've been married for about 36 years like my parents.
