Did you know there and then that you were meant for each other or you needed more time? Or maybe he or she needed more time? :) I've always been interested in stories of how people met :) My favorite one is a story I heard of a girl that wanted to go see a movie with her father. She got there early and got the tickets and was waiting for her father outside the theater. But it was getting late and her father didn't come and she kept waiting. Until there came one guy asking her if she doesn't have by any chance an extra ticket She did, she had her father's, so she gave it to him so it won't go to waste and they entered at the movies together... and a few months later there were married and at the time I heard this story they were both old and grey and still in love with each other :) So, care to share your experience? :)

I met my boyfriend through my bestfriend. Me and my boyfriend are both engineering students, and he use to be my crush. When my bestfriend worked at a food chain, my boyfriend worked there as well. So since my bestfriend knew that I like the guy...she hooked us up. She gave my cellphone number to him. And thats where it all started. He'd text me everyday, when he wakes up, when he go to sleeps, before he goes to work, during his break at work and stuff. Ü But during that time, we were both still in a relationship. Mine was really unstable..the first time that we actually got together...we both admited that we had feelings for each other. So we decided to get together. Weeks past and his current girlfriend found out about us. She made him choose...and he chose me. Then after that, I broke up with my boyfriend as well. i know it wasn't such a good start. But now, were actually doing good. We're both happy and satisfied with each other. And we are sorry..for the persons that got hurt back then.

I met my love actually through my ex. They met online through a friend. My ex (we were still together at the time) introduced him to me online. When the ex and I broke up, My honey and I continued our friendship. after about 3 months or so we decided to be together as a couple. It was a long distance relationship and a big gamble for me as I hate long distant. I was in Maine he was in Virginia. We both flew to each other a couple times and I finally moved down here in July of 06. I have never been more happy in my life.

i met mine about 3 years ago... there's a guy who used to court me, and whom i didn't like. and as a plan to avoid him, i started to look for a guy who people might think that i am in love with. my friend and i looked around our school campus but can't find one. we can't choose those heartthrobs since it won't be too realistic. so instead we chose the heartthrob's best bud. all my friends really believed me that i was in love with this guy. he's cute but i never really considered that me and him would be together, considering the fact that he has a girlfriend and i liked another guy (soo much!). so when this guy broke up with his girlfriend, a friend of mine gave my number to him, but my friend didnt give my real name. days passed when he didn't even try to call the number given to him. then one night our groups passed by each other near school.after that, he asked a common friend of ours my number, without still knowing that he has my number already, except that it has a different name. now, we're still together...and very much happy...

My husband and I worked next door to each other. I worked at a grocery store that had a gas station, and I happened to be working in the gas station that day. He paid for his gas at the pump, then came up the the kiosk that I was working it. He asked for a dr. Pepper. So, I got his dr. Pepper, and started ringing him up for it. I asked if there was anything else that I could get him. He said, Yeah, how about your phone number? I had to think about this, this stranger is aksing for my phone number, do I give it to him or not? I first things that went through my mind was that I just moved to this city, I have no friends, I dont know anyone, and I just got out of a bad relationship and needed to move on! So, while he was signing my copy of his credit card slip, on the back of his copy, I wrote down my phone number. He then got back to his car, when I realized that he had a friend in the car with him. I totally thought that his friend just egged him on the go get a girls phone number. I thought that I would never hear from him again, well, I did a couple days later. 4 years later we are happily married with 1 child. :) That is our story. Our first date story is even better!

I met my hubby in a little pool hall type bar....of all places!! I was taking my older sister there to meet some friends of hers. I wasn't even going to go in, as it wasn't the type of place I frequented. He was coming out for a minute and I walked her in to see if her friends were there. It was "love at first sight". We talked until 4 in the morning and we have been together ever since. That was over 16 years ago. I know that God had planned that chanced meeting and that all the other relationships we both had before this were just preparing us to be together. God is truly sovereign!

I met my husband online in a game room,for a few months we partnered up for daily gameing, I began to have some feelings as we began to talk a lot and get to know each other,but he lived 14 hours away so I really wasnt thinking anything about a relationship.As we talked more and more,started e mailing each other and talking on the messenger my feelings began to grow. To make a long story short we decided to meet and see how things went, we met half way and spent two wonderfull days together,but I knew the moment I looked into his eyes for the first time he was the one for me.That was five years ago and we are now happily married and very much in love.

that's one cute love story. i love stories with happy endings. hehe. my boyfriend and i met online in the first of december 2005. we exchanged emails for many months, became friends and was able to know each other. by the time we started emailing, we were not really looking for love since we were both heart broken that time and we were not that much ready to get into a new relationship. after some months, we decided to give it a try to chat and we did chat. it was fun! then months later, we found ourselves already inlove with each other. hehe. both scared to be hurt again, we tried not to get on with the relationship but it's difficult to say no to love. and so, we tried and now, we're in this relationship for more than a year already and still going strong. he visited me here in the philippines last year and we spent the best two weeks of our lives together. i already had my visa to sweden approved last wednesday and so, anytime soon, i can start a life with him in sweden already. and i am soooooooo excited!

My own love story is very similar to yours :) Meeting online seems to be a very common experience lately :P So, I met my husband online in the summer of 2004. We exchanged emails for a while and then we decided to actually meet, since we lived in the same city and all. Now, I did talk with people online before but I was never interested in meeting anyone in real life. However this time I decided to take a chance :P We first met on a Wednesday and we were inseparable ever since the next Monday. We moved in together after a bit over a month and got married after precisely one year (to the day) after we first met. That's about it :P Congrats on your going to Sweden, I heard it's a great country :) :)

Me and my other half has a cute story too, it goes a little something like this: We met by means of our cousin, my husband and my cousin is working in the same company as a seaferer, they got very close until one day my husband seek my friends help to give him a friend through letter, and he let my husband chose for the girl to be his friend, my cousin have so many pictures that he collected before he go onboard from me and our other cousins too, so then my husband's choses my picture (he actually tell me that the first time he saw my picture he fall in love) (which i dont really belive on, huh)(does love at first sight really works?). So to make the long story short, he decided to get my complete name and address to my cousin and he wrote me a letter of friendship first. When i received the letter of course i feel surprise but he actually write the full detailed of where he got my name and my address, since i trust and love my cousin and i dont want him to be feel bad i responded to the letter, until i found out that that's not the only letter i got from him, this exchange of letter continue accompanied by a day by day call that last until 3hrs. Until one day when he completed his contract and come back here in our hometown we decided to met. I was working then, and he picks me up on my office every day, he really sacrifice so much just to let me know that he's serious in courting me, after how many months i accepted him to be my boyfriend, and that's the start of our relationship, and now we are on our 7yrs. of marriage and with God guidance and love, He gifted us a baby boy that he is now 5yrs of age. And we do working for our relationship to last forever.

Well, I was 17, he was 19, I was actually dating one of his friends, but we had only been dating for about a week. So, I met him, and we liked each other, and one of his friends hooked us up, our first date was my senior prom. 6 years later we are still together and have 2 beautiful children!

I met my wife due to the fact that we both sheltering from the rain in a pub. The fact that I was only in the town for the one day seeing friends and had to travel 600 miles and a 18 hour ferry trip the nest day did not stop me from talking to her all night and well into the early hours of the morning. We kept up the LONG distance relationship and we will be celebrating our 5th wedding anniversary later this year. What is strange is that up until 4 months before hand I lived in the same town for 4 years and we never met up, it just happenend that fate brought us together that day.

You know, for me we are the one who will make our own destiny, there is no time that you will know that you two are meant to be together, what if you really love that person, but you still waiting for the right time. There's no right time, but there is a perfect time. Perfect time is when you ready to say to him/her that he/she will be the one you what to live the rest of your life with. Remember, we are the one who make our own destiny..

I met me swweethart in my workplace. At the time we were in training , n he was the quietest , n the most insignificant guy in out team. Then one day me friend started talking to him, n since she was a tomboy, she started making fun of him. Then one day he asked me wat the time was, n suddeenly i happened to ask him out of the blue, if he listens to rock! He said yes!!!(I guessed ti cause he wore Metallica , n SOAD tees). N I too listen to rock so out of curiosity I asked him. We spoke of usic for a while, n then luckily we had to go home by the same vehicle provided by our company as transport. He asked me for me number(pretty fast! I thought for such a quiet guy like him) n he wrote it on his palm , n went home. I waited for him the next day to call me, but he didn't. I thought he had a gf or somethin at that time , so he forgot bout me. Then out meetings increased, n we were talking more about rock music. Then there was this colleague of ours who was me bf's friend, n he fell in love with me friend, who was also at the same company. We (that's me n me bf) tried to get em together, when suddenly one day me friend told me that Thomas (me bf) is in love with me, n was scared to tell me this. I knew this was goung to happen , cause I too loved him, but wanted him to telll me. Next day we had a party, n he proposed me. I said No first , cause I needed time to think, n then finally gave in n saidd yes!. Music Brought Us Together. Its been Two years now, we plan to get married in bout three-four years time, ot sooner, cause we r busy with out careers at the moment!!!

I met by better half through my friend's contact. I got to know that he is a strong guy, with firm attitude and discipline, that he follows. He was a brother of my friend. This brief description about him, mede me interested in him, and then I contacted him through email for the first time. Then came his first angry reply, which turned gradually softer and sweeter, as the days passed by. Then we met, and now we are engaged. We hope to get married in a year.
