    Ben and I met when we were at school and became really good friends. The he broke up with his gf of 3 years after she slept with someone else and I was there to pick up the pieces. We've been inseparable ever since :)

    How about you lovely ladies?

    Musicalpolarbear - similar story to me and OH :)

    I'd won tickets to a VW show in Wales (where I'd never been before) and I'd driven down from a holiday in the Lake District. Awful journey, took me 7 hours on rubbish motorways, so I was knackered when I got there.
    Drove into the field, found my friends, found a space next to a camper I didn't recognise, and parked. A guy I didn't know came out of the van, looked a bit disconcerted, then introduced himself.

    I later found out that he was saving the spot I'd parked in for his mate and was coming out to tell me to move...but when he saw me he thought "Sod Jimbo, she can stay!"

    We got a little bit tipsy that night round the campfire and we've been together ever since - 5 years now!

    The weirdest thing was, he'd just come back from living in the US for 10 years, but he grew up 10 minutes down the road from me in London!

    I confess I met my h2b on freedating. I had been there over a year and some weeks had a date every night of the week! It took me ages to find what I was looking for but I got there in the end. I actually emailed him first and he sent back such a lovely message I knew I had to meet him. A couple of days later we had our first date at Newstead Abbey and it just went so well.

    I played it cool when he said he had to go (his tummy was rumbling as it was well past dinner time) so I asked him if he wanted something to eat at mine before he left as he had a long drive back home. We stopped off at Tesco's and I got some food in and cooked for him. He was a gent and asked if he could pay for it as I had gone to so much trouble for him so I casually said he can cook next time if he likes? Needless to say we ended up spending the next weekend together and that was it. I'm so glad that I had the courage to ask him as it saved a lot of time messing about finding out how we both felt. Just goes to show that not all the internet is full of freaks and it can work. (eventually)

    We met on a dating website when I emailed him. He was the first person I'd met online & vice versa. Our first date was so great that 2 days later we had another, then 4 months later we moved in together & a year later we're engaged to be married!! crazy!!

    H2b confessed on the first date that the night I emailed him he was planning to delete his profile from the dating site, but had to stay late at work. The day after when he logged in to do it he found my email!! I never believed in fate until we met each other & now I feel like I've got my own little fairytale!! I thank my lucky stars everyday that we found each other!.... sorry if i've made anyone feel sick!! lol!! x x x

    I think in this day and age its about the only way to meet other people out of your social circle. You are hardly going to go up to a stranger in a pub etc and ask them if they are single. If its done with care then I think its really safe as well. I used to always text my friend their car reg etc and which pub we were meeting in. I would then make sure I was not being followed home. At least if someone did try to kill me the police would have an idea who it was lol.

    We met at work, we worked in the same office but technically in different departments so didn't talk really until a staff night out, when he was really shy and quiet and I started speaking to him because nobody else was and I felt sorry for him! We had really similar taste in music so we chatted a lot over the next week, and then when I was working a late shift on my birthday I wanted to go out for last minute drinks after and he was the only person who was free to come with me. We ended up really getting to know each other and stayed out so late we both missed our last buses home - we had to sleep that night in the staff room at work, and I found out he was the best kisser ever! We've been together ever since. :D

He broke it off with his ex and when I realised how much I liked him I finshed with my ex.
