So he decides to pick me up and insticly I elbow him in the FACE.

Haha what an awesome story!

Ours is boring. We met online about two and a half/three years ago when I was looking for a rebound, we didn't meet up for a long time and I wasn't really that attracted to him, but apparently he kept trying to impress me. We met and went to a pub together and chatted, but I thought he was really grumpy and mean so we didn't see each other for ages again. We met up last year and had sex in his Bath house but nothing came of it. Then suddenly about March/April this year we started seeing a hell of a lot more, and realised we were going out. It was a little odd, the relationship just kinda sprang up on us haha. And we've been very happy for almost six months now

Both are cool different stories, shows it can just happen anywhere! hehe

I met Stephen in Crazy Prices, the supermarket we both worked in part time. I thought he was soo cool and sexy hehe even in his stupid uniform. We were both seeing other people, but felt an attraction, we flirted like crazy for a few months, then when I realised he wasn't ending it with his girl, I started going out with another guy from work.
We got together once or twice at a club when I was with this other guy. Then me and the new guy ended and eventually Stephen and I got together, but my mother wasn't happy as he was older (20) and I was 17, so we went out for about 2 months and I ended it, then flirted for the next few months and kissed a few times and finally started going out again in March 1998 Happy Been together ever since!

My boyfriend was supreme leader of the table. Ryan invited us to sit at the table. Three months later, my boyfriend noticed me when my friends pelted me with butter and he told Adrian "I'd like for Allison to sit next to me." And the next day "Allison, we are moving you" and then I bounced radishes, he asked me to a dance, so I said yes, found out his last name, that he was much older than me, and my parents decided to have their midlife crisis.

And so we've been together... first loves, first kisses... all that fun jazz.

And just so everyone knows I was not on anything when I wrote that. It was definitely a high school thing.

HAHA mad. Stephen looks like a viking Happy Hey I just realised, Mike was 20 when I met him and I was 17! Mines another online thing *sigh*

Mike added me on msn from a message board and we talked a bit. Then about a year later maybe, we suddenly started talking again and I knew he lived close by and suddenly we decided to meet up. So as soon as I saw him (even though I'd seen a picture, he was better in real life lol) I just grinned and I remember looking at him while he was talking and thinking how strange but nice his eyes were (think the precious stone tiger's eye). I went to his house the next day, that night I texted him and asked are we going out kinda thing and he said yeh. 2 years later we're very happy bunnies. I was straight to the point because I felt it was right, I'd wasted so much time being lonely and desperate and sad, but the trust and everything was just instant. It feels so long ago I can't remember it properly!
I've got a bit panicky sometimes but i've never had a proper relationship before and I think I expected something to go badly wrong. I make myself feel bad about things that don't matter/exsist, paranoid andriod, I feel bad about something right now but I don't even know what! Anyway there was just something and it just worked straight away, we wanted/want the same things. As you may realise I'm a bit embarrased that we met online, we don't tell people that but I don't know why since it's all fucking wonderful. I don't know what I'd do without him, there's no one else who would be as good. Sorry I ranted.

My boyfriend and I met online, too. It was on a crappy free dating site. He was ranked as incompatible for me, but no one online or in real life would even talk to me, so I messaged him. Then we realized that we had tons in common, shared the same outlook on life, and overall hit it off as very talkative online friends. The day after we started talking, we decided that fate brought us together, but that we wanted to be friends primarily, so if we did decide to have a relationship in the future, it would be strong. The next day we confessed that we loved each other in a romantic way and couldn't wait. We met in person a week later. We've been inseparable ever since.

When i met my man, my sister introduced us as, "My sister, this is the crappy ass loser you never want to know. Asshole, this is my sister." Than a year later, we talked when my sister tried to beat the crap out of me. And i found out his real name ;) lol Andrew, and i talked and than we came really good friends the next year. Than when spring break came that year, i was at the hospital for a wrist sprain, he poped his shoulder out of place. We cuddled with druggs coursing in out system to kill pain, been together sinceHappy lol.

Me and My hubby met at work. I started working when he was in Israel for the Marines. We worked in Valet, he was a runner I worked in the booth. So, his 1st day back at work, he walked out of the garage, into the booth. And he had his hair fixed all cute, he was wearing boots, jeans, and his motorcycle jacket. He also had his I-pod on, listening to some rock and roll. When I saw him, I thought "WHO.....IS......THAT?!" I was in a serious relationship at the time. And I'm not one for cheating, but I couldn't get my mind off of him. So, my relationship ended only a month after the 1st time I saw Jesse (For other reasons not because of Jesse.) And the next weekend I went out with everyone after work, and me and Jesse got to really talk, and we really hit it off. Had a date the next weekend, and have been together ever since. 2 years now, and we are married, and have a son. (= Yay, for work!

My boyfriend and I met while playing a lot of DDR with a bunch of other students. It took a year for us to coax each other out of our angsty teenager phases via friendship, it was an "everyone realised I liked him before I did, didn't want to spoil the friendship etc" type of things for both of us, but one night I made the first move in a gothic nightclub :p 4 years later we live together and are incredibly happy. He DID knock me unconcious with a bowling ball by accident before we started going out haha! Happy

Great stories everyone! ^_^

I met my boyfriend online too, on a band forum. I always thought he was about forty years old, haaaa. I just remember thinking he had a good sense of humour, but most people on that forum were well into their forties, i was a bit of an oddball as a youngster, so i just assumed everyone else was old too. Being a forum full of old people, they found out one day about those temporary chat rooms you can set up, so people started setting them up and we'd all go in the chat rooms together- and we were in the chatroom at the same time once and we were all talking rubbish and playing double dares and then we started linking each other to myspaces (yes, we are all that pathetic) and i found his myspace and it turned out he was 21 (i was sixteen at the time) and he had big ginger curly hair so i told him he had mad cool hair. a week or so later i'm on msn with someone off this forum, and he adds tom to the conversation. i'm with my friend at the time, and when we find out what his surname is- we realise it fits her first name perfectly (i don't want to use full names but it's as brilliant as lucy locket) so we start planning their wedding. then i add tom to my msn, and we chat daily and we discover we've got loads in common and pretty much exactly the same sense of humour, so we send each other packages in the post and pull faces at each other on webcam and stuff... then about a year later, my parents are going on holiday to manchester area so i tag along and we plan meets. i had a meeeeeeega crush on him so i was totally nervous. we spend about a week together flirting madly (although of course we were both too shy to notice the other one liked us...) and then when it was time for me to go home i cried and i cried and i cried so hard because he hadn't kissed me. i was totally heartbroken. about two weeks later he came to stay at mine for a festival, where there was more flirting- and on the last night, after The Research's set he finally kissed me. (and then he told me he was gay! but that he realised when he fell for me that he wasn't.... ARGH i did not enjoy that conversation) haaa. we've been together ever since.

looooooong story.

Aaw it's lovely =) The best way I ever met someone was on holiday, I had a massive crush on him but was too terrified to talk to him, he kept smiling at me though. And there was this horrid incident when I got up to do karaoke cause I thought he wasn't there and he was! Then on the last night I gave him a letter saying he was hot (I was twelve!) and gave him my email, and he knew where my caravan was so he came back and said he'd add me on MSN. He didn't for like, three months, but then he did and we hit it off and really kinda fell in love I guess (I know I was young, but I know how I felt), and we met up in Chester cause he lives in Liverpool and nothing happened, then we met up in Liverpool but only for half an hour and we only chatted a bit. Then one time he came to Bristol for four days to stay at my house (I slept in a different room), and he was saying that he likes me but not in the way I like him, then he kissed me! And it was lovely and he came and stayed once more but I haven't seen him since.

Mine's a bit of a long and complicated story haha.

About a year ago my boyfriend at the time was having a party, and Chris (who's my boyfriend now) was one of the people he invited. We all got a bit drunk (probably not the best idea, and I really wish I hadn't as since then I've been told some things I nearly did and nearly had done to me that would not have been pleasant in the slightest >.<, but anyway...) and my at the time boyfriend ended up sleeping in his room with another guy, and I ended up in his dads room sharing a bed with 4 other guys (I don't even wanna know how that happened, I really shouldn't be allowed to get drunk). As the night went on Chris and I started kissing, but even though I kinda liked him I felt bad so I stopped it.
I didn't really see him much after that, other than on Friday nights (my circle of friends is linked to his old circle of friends and they all have links to other circles, so Friday nights were like a huge gathering for all of us at a youth cafe thing). When we were there I introduced him to my at the time best friend and another Croatian girl I was friends with at college.
At the beginning of January I broke up with my boyfriend (because he cheated on me with another guy who I was involved with and there was a whole huge web of lies told by both of them and I felt so used and hurt and disgusted by the other person because he completely lied to me and made me trust him when he just wanted my boyfried and grrrrrrrr , but that's another story entirely). Chris told me he was happy that we'd broken up because he really liked me, but before we could manage to get together he started going out with the Croatian college friend (turns out she threatened him that if he went out with me she'd make his life hell because she's that sort of manipulative bitch). So needless to say I was pretty annoyed and didn't talk to him much for a while.
He made her really really unhappy (when we gradually started talking again he told me about all the mean and nasty things she did/said, like when he was in a car accident she completely didn't care, she forced him to have sex with her in a car WITH 3 OTHER PEOPLE THERE, and thats only the start...), so when she finally dumped him he was upset but pretty relieved. Obviously I was really happy Tongue, so we finally started going out. Buuut this pissed off my at the time best friend, because she was suddenly like "Yeah I like him too, I feel so lead on" (which was her fault really, because she kept things from me so I had no idea) so I ended up arguing with her. Croatian girl took offense too, and she decided she completely hates me and I haven't spoken to her since.

Sorry about the complete essay >.< haha
