    I was super bored one night, and I had to complete a project over spring break and all of my friends had gone on vacation. So I got on omegle to see if I could find anybody interesting. I randomly got connected with a girl from Norway. After texting for a few weeks, we starting Skyping. Once I graduated, I happened to get a job with a company that is headquartered in Norway. At this point, we had still never met in person and didn't expect anything to ever happen. Well, on her birthday, she decides she is going to come meet me in America, since she wanted to have a vacation in America. 2 years later, I am living in Norway permanently and we own a house together here, and life really could not be better :) The odds of everything happening to work out as it did were so low. I get amazed every time I think of how everything happened!

      That's great. I'm glad that the distance didn't deter what sounds like an awesome relationship.

    I met my husband at a party for a mutual club we were in. Although he has no recollection of this meeting and we had the same conversation at the club event the next day where we really hit it off.

      I guess that means you really liked him both drunk and sober!

      • fanficmistress

        Yes I guess I got lucky with that one. Or he was lucky.

    A mutual friend I met through work invited me to join his D&D campaign in reciprocation for my inviting him to join my game. He held his game at the home of one of his high school friends, a young woman and her husband. The hostess cooked roast beef with vegetables and I went back for seconds because it was that good. We became friends and half a year later started dating as she was divorcing her husband.

    Our ten year anniversary is coming up soon.

      So it was her cooking that hooked you. I see how it is. Congratulations on ten years!

        Ironically, it was the fact that I went back for seconds that got her attention. ;) She initially shut me down by claiming to be a lesbian except where her husband was concerned and I took that as an obvious signal to not flirt with her. So I behaved myself until she changed the rules.

      Congrats on the upcoming anniversary!

    I played in a band. She worked at a radio station as music director/on-air personality. Her station was throwing a Halloween party and looking for bands to play at the event. They would choose the bands from demos the bands sent in. The station liked our demo, invited us to play the event and to come in for an interview a few days before the party. She was working that night. She gave me shit the whole interview.

    That was 9 years ago. We've been married for 6 years now and have 2 crazy boys.

    • fanficmistress

      I assume she still gives you shit occasionally? Congratulations on being together for 9 years!

      • pseudopsynic

        If she's not giving me shit, she's mad at me.

        Thanks!

    My friend opened up a comic book shop. I was recently unemployed so I spent a lot of time there shortly after it opened. I met a woman who worked there who was friends with all my friends. We hung out every day I was there and really hit it off. A couple months later I finally find another job in another state about 12 hours away. We talked to each other every day for almost 2 years, even though she got a boyfriend shortly after I moved away.

    One day I give up on the dream of us being together and stop talking to her. Several months later (4-6) I text her again out of the blue and she is extremely excited to hear from me. I had been at that job for about 2 years at this point and was looking to move back to the original state. We continue talking every day and I fly up to visit friends for Halloween. My last night there she calls me and tells me she loves me (something I've been waiting to hear for 2 years). I flew back home and started working even harder to find a job near her.

    Finally new years comes around and I have an interview. Nail the interview and get an offer. I then flew her down to me and she helped me pack up my and rode with me in the moving truck. We now live together with our two kids (each of us has a kid from previous marriage) and have been together for 8 months.

    I couldn't be happier.

      That's great I am glad you were able to be together after all of that time!

    My wife and I met through a gaming site. We had no intentions of being more than friends and we had known each other online for 6 or 7 years before we ever met in person. Over time our friendship turned into more (well as much as it could for us being so far apart), so I purchased a flight to West Virginia from California and the rest is history. What started off as internet friends quickly turned into romance, we have now been married 6 years.

      That's great congratulations on 6 years!

    I decided that I wanted to take karate and she was already a student at the school I ended up going to.

    • pseudopsynic
      +4

      So, she knows more karate than you?

      Don't piss her off, dude.

    • fanficmistress

      So is she still a higher level than you or have you achieved the same?

      • caelreth

        We stopped going just after we got married. And she was/is a higher rank than me.

    We are both pretty active in the LGBT community, so we met each other after a meeting of our university's GSA (Gay-Straight Alliance) and, well, things kind of went from there. Basically on the first day we spent 7 hours straight walking around campus and talking, and it was pretty much the best day ever.

    • fanficmistress

      It's great when you can just talk for hours on end.

        We still do, a year and a half later. :)

    We had mutual friends on an mmo called city of heroes but I never paid him attention until a player meet. We were both with other people and just got talking and teaming up sometimes as friends. His visa here ended and his relationship ended and then mine ended also. So I ended up flying out to stay with him in Australia.

    We are now 5 years married, back in the UK and have two boys :)

    I love him deeply, even when he's occasionally a thoughtless dolt; I'm sure I am too sometimes.

      That's great congratulations on 5 years! I hear city of heroes was a great game.

        Socially it was awesome, still the best character creation/costume maker. There was a lot of game play lack but at the time it was amazing :)

        Some dedicated people gave got the old maps and stuff to work as a chatroom thing with the costume functionality. I haven't had a look yet though.

    Rock climbing gym in the bouldering section. We were sitting somewhat in close proximity to one another. I overheard him say that he liked my shoes to his friend, and I struck up a conversation with him. One year later (after ditching an ex and such), we were still hanging out at the gym a few times a week. We've been together for about a year and a half since. He makes me very happy.

    We lived in the same dorms. I was on the second floor and she was on the third floor. My roommate literally made my room smell, so I spent most of my time in the lobby. I'm a pretty friendly guy so I became known as the guy who sits in the lobby saying "Hi!" to everysingle person that walked through the doors. One day she decided to come down to the lobby and hang out with me. We became friends and then we basically just became a couple.

    • fanficmistress

      The friends to couple route is a great way to go. She probably thought you looked really lonely sitting by yourself.

        Haha that's fine by me! 'Cause she's a definite keeper.

    I Met my Wife in High School, we were friends all through high school then we briefly dated after high school it didn't end up working out and we stayed in touch for the next 10 before we got back together again and it worked out... for now . (shifty eyes)

      Sometimes it takes walking away to see what you have and in this case probably mature a lot. I hope it continues to work out!

    I was working in the dorms in College. I was a Junior and she was my resident, a Freshman. I walked into her room to introduce myself, and was just swept up in how beautiful she was, and how her smile lit up the room. It took me a while to get the courage, but I asked her out, and we've been dating for over 3 years now :)

      It took me a little bit to get the courage to ask him out. Also so liquid courage works to speed it up.

    Plenty of Fish :) We talked for a few hours during the day and decided to meet up later that night. We drove for a few hours while running errands and talked the entire time. We were inseparable after that day. 10 months later we were married. Now together for 2.5 years and still very much in love :)

    • fanficmistress

      That's great when you can spend the whole day just talkingn congratulations on over 2 years!

    We met in in the Republic in Sheffield in 2001 at the Tidy Trax Christmas Party (back in my old raving days). I have no recollection of it. He has a photo of his mates and me in which he named me "girl with glasses" and put it up on the clubbing message board we used to use.

    The first time I remember meeting him was at a festival, we both ended up the backstage area and he was telling me all about his ex and that he was moving up near me from Bristol. There were times in between that we hung about with each other as he'd moved in with my friends, and at their house warming we were inseparable all night.

    First date was just me heading on up to Manchester to meet up and hang out, he kissed me in the pizza aisle of Tesco, 14th August 2002, and here we are 13 years later, married for 8 years, and still sickeningly happy.

    I was born with her at the end of my forearm. Just destiny, I guess.
