Meeting your SO

How did you and your SO meet?

For the misses and I it was a very intersting turn of events. I was going to go on a double date with my best friend. The ladies we were to meet up with were also best friends and we had all known each other for a couple years but never dated. Well a couple hours before we were supposed to go out a tornado hit just outside of town knocking power out. Our prospective dates had to stay at work because the bread had to be baked for the next morning. So instead of going out with a girl that I was fairly certain was a sure thing (I've since found naked pictures of her on the net) I asked a coworker out with me and had her invite a friend for my buddy. We ended up going out to a laser tag place and having a hell of a fun time, but I barely got a kiss. Well over the next couple months we continued to date and flirt at work until eventually she moved in with me and after a couple months we were engaged. I always say that god intervened in my life and sent that tornado to keep me from hooking up with a skank and instead directed me to my wonderfull wife =)

We met at a bar ( I guess my mom was wrong about that!) He was sitting on a pool table that I wanted to use-- so I made some smart ass remark which he thought was funny. He got down but hung around my friends and I a bit. We made eye contact throughout the night-- a slow song came on and he asked me to dance. We danced, talked. He asked me to go to breakfast with him, but I had other plans, so he gave me his number. We kissed once in the parking lot too. The next day I called him, he came over and never left!
I knew he was a good guy when he went to the store, that day, to get some snacks and bought some treats for my dog too!

Yeah, men who bring treats for the pets definately rank high.

I met my first "other" because he followed me around for several months and I finally agreed to go out with him on pity. That one lasted 5 years.

I met my current other because he was dating my roommate (ouch).

We met in a pool hall too! He came up to me. I was sitting alone drawing on my hand, and he asked me to play a game with him. I said, "No thanks," and he persisted, "Aw, come on, just one game?" I replied again, "No, and by the way, how old are you?" He says, "I'm 23, and you?" "I'm 30, and have a 10 year old daughter," "So, just one game?" He persists again. "No, I don't have a competitive nature." I say.

Well, I ended up playing with him after he begged a few more times. After I won one game, we finished our drinks, and headed over to my place where we sat and listened to Belle and Sebastian, "Boy with the Arab Strap" and I painted his fingernails sky blue. Then, we made out, hard. So hard that I felt the need to slow it down a bit, so I asked him, "Ummm, do you canoe?" "What?" he asked. "Canoe!!" I said. I have a friend that lives on a private lake where there are several canoes. "Uhhh, okay?" He hesitantly replied. So we went and picked up some hard lemonade, and went canoeing. Well, the kissing started again, and before I knew what to do, we tipped the canoe right over. Lemonade gone, my shoes, gone. We dragged the canoe to shore, but didn't find my shoes. Luckily, my friend’s house was near by, so we went in and turned on his sauna in an attempt to get out clothes dry, to no avail. So, we went back to his place where we stripped from our wet clothing, put on t-shirts??? (I don't remember) and went to sleep. We had left a trail of clothing, and to this day, his friends/roommates joke about how all they saw was the trail of clothes leading to his room. (heeheehee) And yes Jack, we did do it!!!

To make a long story short, we fell madly in love, and were married two years later. It was the most romantic night of my entire life, and to this day, a match, perfected only in heaven.

Same with me, but my roommate was an idiot and lost out on a wonderful girl. The day she broke up with him we started hanging out. And it's weird because we met as children once a long time ago and neither of us knew it, but both of our parents knew. If you believe in fate, I guess you could say it was meant to be...

Not much of a sappy love at first sight story (no offense to anyone) but I was too intimidated to talk to her so when I saw a friend of mine talking to her I went over and instantly started a conversation. We started hanging a few days after the first meeting and after 2 months of flirting/friendship we were going out. It's been 2 years so far and although I'm young, I'm already looking forward to the long haul.

We met in a party at a friend's house. Kinda funny because later we both said that we really had no interest in going there that night, but now we are really glad that we did.

There's no great story in it really, but we still like to look back upon it. We sat together on a sofa, just chilling and listening to the music. I'd noticed how beautiful she was before that, and just dared myself to start a converstion with her. From the start it was really easy to talk to her and we could laugh together. So later on I asked for her number and she gladly gave it to me. I called her the next day, and the day after we had our first real "date".

Dave and I met thru and online personals thing. We had JUST broken up with people (a two year engagement for him.....mine was a fuck buddy I'd gotten too attached too) and were looking for a "no strings" kinda thing. I replied to his ad on tuesday, he replied to me on thursday morning, had our first date (and sex) that nite. We parted ways that evening (actually early the next morning) with him saying that he wasnt looking for a relationship because of the horrible one he'd just gotten out of, but that he'd like to see me again and hang out.

He called me the next morning and told me he never ever wanted to wake up without me again hehehe and with the exception of him being out of town for work, he hasnt and that was September 18th of 2003. We plan on being married the end of 2005

I met my wife when I auditioned for a play in first year University... When I walked into the audition her smiling face was the first thing I saw... She was supposed to be the stage manager but the director cast her in the play (Christopher Durang's Titanic).

One evening after rehearsal, the cast went for beer and we were seated next to each other... when our knees touched she didn't pull her knee away. It was a little thing but it didn't go unnoticed.

She had to walk home alone because her roommate (also in the play) was going out. I offered to walk her home. It was the middle of winter in a very chilly Ottawa. Once we reached her place we had tea and I crashed on her couch for the night...

We started dating shortly after and have been together for over 16 years now (married over 11).

He insulted me when he was drunk and I thought he was the worlds biggest idiot.

Looked him up on an online community a few days later and saw that we had a lot of things in common. Started talking (online) and took it to IRL. Took us a week to get to bf/gf status.

That was two years ago.

Oddly enough she picked me up at a bar.

She always thinks it's really funny that she picked me up. Oh well. I was planning on making a move on her anyways. She just beat me to the punch.

She was working as a waitress in a cocktail bar...
(Ok, just had to get the Human League reference in there)

She and I were both working at a RenFest. She was selling food, and I was working security. A friend of mine pointed her out to me, and she was the most beautiful thing that I had ever seen. I had just gotten out of a relationship, and was not looking for love at that point. My friend was too shy to walk up to her alone, so I took him right up to her and said "Hi, his name is Matt. What is your name?" I didn't introduce myself or anything.
She ended up not much liking Matt, but she thought that my approach was cute as hell. (Matt had the attention span of a narcoleptic puppy, so he wasn't upset)
Anywho... she asked me for a ride home after work one night, "accidentally" left something in my car, and the rest is history. Been together almost 11 years now.

Hmmm My estranged husband and I still lived together, but I spent all my time in Everquest where I met my now hubby. We were introduced by my online stalker none the less lol. So twisted. We spent every night and weekend in game together, talked on the phone on an almost daily basis, then I asked him if I could come down to the states and visit him. He decided to come up and spend my birthday with me, which was about 2 months after we met in game. He spent 10 wonderful days there, even though he was very sick with a cold. When he left we were both broken hearted, so two weeks later I moved to the states!! We had to wait for my divorce to be final, which it was in Oct then we got married in Nov.
Every day is still as good as those first ones even after almost 4 years I have no regrets, so it was all worth it, even if it was strange.

I met my (now ex) wife in college. We had the same class together and she and I were always the first people at the door, waiting for the previous class to dismiss. We would flirt for a few minutes before class. The problem in the equation was that my then current (and quite evil) girlfriend was also in the class, except she was always late. I had a narrow window of opportunity to get my flirt on before the current evil girlfriend showed up. Nothing like pressure to bring out the best in ya.

My girlfriend and I went to the same school, but as the student population of that school grew, we all knew that another was to be built, and quick. She was two grade levels below me, but we had always known each other in passing and through mutual friends during the school year.

The next year she moved to the new school that was built and I saw less of her. I didn't really think anything of it because she had always been dating this other young man and I am not one to swoop in and interrupt a relationship.

One day, I was invited to a party just on the outskirts of town by one of her mutual friends, and although I didn't know it, she would be there that day. I wasn't going to go, but figured I might as well since I had nothing to do that night anyway. Two friends and myself made the trip with a few bottles of liquor and proceeded to make our rounds socializing with everyone.

Then I saw her. We spoke a few words, but didn't really get to talk since it was very dark, and very noisy with the rest of the crowd trying to wake the dead. Sure, I thought it would be nice to hang out, so I asked her and she said that her number was in the phonebook. I thought that was weird, but I didn't ask her out originally for a date (since I knew it might be next to impossible to see her again because she didn't attend my high school).

During the ride home, I thought to myself that it might be nice to at least attempt a date, so I spent the next week trying to work up my courage to call her. With my hands shaking, I picked up the phone on the sixth day and dialed the numbers, each tone ringing like a church bell inside my head. With bated breath I waited for the other end to be picked up. Suddenly an older man's voice was heard on the other end of the connection and I almost froze up right then and there. Beads of sweat dripped down my forehead with increasing speed as we exchanged pleasantries and he summoned his daughter.

She wasn't home. She was out excercising. D'oh! I had to wait even longer to speak with her.

About an hour later, I received a phone call from my (now) girlfriend. She apologized for not being at home but wondered what I wanted. I asked her if she wanted to go play baseball, and she replied that she couldn't due to plans but she suggested she was free another night - I was in, at elast for a group get-together. I suggested bowling and we set a date. A few other people were to show up.

She had the widest smile when I arrived (only about half a minute after she arrived!). I tried my hardest to flirt with her and I believe we both knew why we were there. All of our friends knew it too. I cautiously asked her for a date and she said yes.

It was to be a movie. It was either A) Southpark B) American Pie or C) Generals Daughter. She didn't mind that I chose American Pie. We both had a great time!

We've been dating ever since - 5 years this July just past.

Oh, one more thing: She and I knew each other at first through BBSing back in the days before the Internet became colossal with the release of NSCA Mosaic. We were both SysOps of our own respective BBSes. In fact, she was the only female SysOp in town! Score! We both played LORD like it was going out of style (although TW2002 was my personal favourite).

Wait, another: She had worked for the last three years in an adult novelty store, on a dare from me! Score!

I guess this goes to show you that someone ends up with all the luck!

He was friends with my roommates boyfriend. The boyfriend brought him over one night, I thought he talked to much and was annoying. He thought I was a bitch. We were forced to hang out with eachother due to our mutual friends and a few parties later we were falling in love on the back steps of my house. It was a night I'll never forget. We remained just friends for a month or two but it wasn't long until we realized we should be dating. We've been married 2 years.

Where else would one meet an Aussie girl but in a pub. It's a cold February and I'm in a Washington D.C. bar with a mutual friend celebrating his birthday. In walks this girl wearing a Driza-Bone oil skin. She exchanges greetings with the birthday boy and sits down across from me. We chat a bit and I just love her accent. After awhile she says, "Gotta see a man about a dog." Off she goes to the bathroom. At the back of the bar, not 20 feet from us, are two doors marked Ladies and Gents. There are about 15 women queuing outside the Ladies room. My soon to be funny little honey stands for a second with her hands on her hips then mutters "Fuck this." She walks to the Mens door, kicks it open and yells, "Heads up! Woman on deck!"

I was smitten.

I was in town visiting a couple of my girlfriends and they wanted to take me to see this really cute guy who worked at the local grocery store. Neither of them knew him really well, they just thought he was cute and kinda stalked him (going in just to buy gum, etc). Well they took me and we all started talking (very small town so they weren't total strangers to him) and we all agreed to hang out that night. Loverboy and I ended up talking all night and totally hit it off, much to the dismay of my friends who had been lusting after him forever, and here I come, and after one day, he was mine heh heh

My SO and I might have never met had it not been for my best friend's birthday party...to which he hadn't even been invited! He was on holiday in my country and I had just got back into town from rehearsing with my band, and was pretty exhausted. It was 1am and I still had to go to the party...if it hadn't been my best friend's b'day I wouldn't have gone. So I went to meet everyone in a bar, and he was there, he'd come with some friends of ours, he was staying at their house. Nothing happened all night, we had drinks, went out, danced, but we barely even spoke. I had my eye on him though...he has the cutest blue sparkling eyes and cheeky grin

I got totally smashed and at the end of the night got driven back to the friend's house he was staying at. Everyone went to sleep and such and he stayed up with me, just talking...I'm a really difficult person and didn't want to get involved, but he got the better of me and after talking for hours he kissed me. We watched the sunrise together and kissed, and then we fell asleep. When we woke up he treated me like a princess and we spent the rest of the week together.

Then he left for England, but a year later (we kept in touch by net and visited each other 4 times) he came to live with me. We're very happy and living together now with our two cats
Whether we write or speak or do but look
We are ever unapparent. What we are
Cannot be transfused into word or book.
Our soul from us is infinitely far.
However much we give our thoughts the will
To be our soul and gesture it abroad,
Our hearts are incommunicable still.
In what we show ourselves we are ignored.
The abyss from soul to soul cannot be bridged
By any skill of thought or trick of seeming.
Unto our very selves we are abridged
When we would utter to our thought our being.
We are our dreams of ourselves, souls by gleams,
And each to each other dreams of others' dreams.

Fernando Pessoa, 1918
