So, my friend and her partner have just celebrated their 6th year together. She was on a tube, dropped her DiscWorld book and he picked it up, they got speaking about Discworld. That's how they met.

So, I'm curious to hear what are your how you met you partner/ an ex stories happy.gif

Euuugh. The word "lover" creeps me out. It always makes me think of my aunt. She traumatised me when I was 12 by leaning over her husband's chair and saying, in a husky voice, "Hello, lover." Gross gross gross. Maybe you had to be there to fully appreciate the horror of that particular memory, but trust me. Bleugh.

Anyway. I think most people know the basics of how I met moop. tongue.gif We met on here, pretty much. There was also a lot of IRC, Skype, and I-sketch involved.

I met an ex purely by chance. I was living in shared accommodation at Uni and this new chap moved in. He'd met some girl who he'd invited round with a view to going out with her. She asked if she could bring her housemate along and he agreed (on the basis it was better than being blown out, I expect!)

So I answered the door and was utterly captivated with this girl's housemate. So when I was asked if I wouldn't mind making up the numbers, I casually jumped at the chance laugh.gif It all went really well and we ended up going out for a few months. Until she dumped me. Oh well.

And my housemate got blown out! laugh.gif

Sues and I worked together. I was dating someone else when we met, but we got together after that ended. It's not exactly a grand story!

Previously:
Friend of a friend, met in a pub.
Met in a pub, she had cool hair, we talked, she took me back to her place!
Long term friends who eventually became intimate for about six months, then a few more times over the years (we're still friends)
Long term friends who were intimate once (we're also still friends)
Met at a circus convention, she was very pretty and came on to me heavily. I've only seen her once since then!

My current I met at work. We'd worked together for 10 years before we got together, and it was only because they were closing the site we were working at that anything happened!

England, you talk funny. Splain me please?

I meet people while cooking. In my own kitchen. Hrm. Also dancing, but those barely qualify as Things; I am never like 'oh whatup québécois lovahhhh, buy me a drink and we will express our love thru crazy obscene dance moves and drunken makeouts!'

Thinking about it, the internet has had a big impact on the number of relationships and my sex life in general. One ex from uni was a random meeting through a website, she turned out to be a (young) lecturer, not one of mine, but only because I chose one module over another. I've had a customer in my current job handing me her phone number, she turned out to be 12 years older, but a lot of fun... rolleyes.gif

Currently, I get lots of free coffee from a very pretty blonde in an Italian deli near where I work, she invited me to go see the jazz on the Pantiles (it's a place, google it if you wanna), but we missed each other apparently. >_<

I read it as 'the jizz on her panties'.

Mostly just school. Sitting next to someone and eventually becoming their friend. One time there was this kid from summer camp, but we were friends for like three years before going out, and I can't remember exactly where/when I met him. I think we might have been playing Predator and were hiding behind the same tree.

I think I am the kind of man who gets jumped on...but I like it.

I don't recall ever taking any action to initiate anything after a chance meeting, such as at a party or a pub. On the other hand I can think of many times where I have awkwardly tried to approach someone and get shot down horribly.

One girl text me out of the blue a year after an engagement party I attended. I spoke to her twice that night, very briefly, and to this day have no idea how she tracked my number down. At the party, I was also jumped on by a very chavvy girl disguised as a goth.

The stalker was a predator red hair Sloane girl. She still occasionally messages me, despite my number and address having changed numerous times.

I was stalked for 6 months by my chap in various clubs, he wore me down. This was 14 years ago now smile.gif We have had some big bumps along the way and I daresay that there will be more, but we've managed to come through so far.

My first boyfriend I met through school, we had the same English class and ended up friends. It went from there.

The current love interest has a slightly more interesting story. The boyfriend mentioned above dumped me at the same time as the current love's girlfriend. My ex and his ex ended up going out with each other, so we started chatting through myspace since we figured we were in the same boat and should meet each other. We ended up really liking each other and...it went from there.

England, you talk funny. Splain me please?

I know. This language we call "English" is so complicated it can get lost in translation over a distance of 40 miles. Or sometimes less. So it's of little surprise that you, out there in the bit of Canada that doesn't speak English as a first language, you didn't understand. So here is Leo's translation module:

Getting blown out = not getting as far as the first date

Now technically she showed up, his "date", for this "first date", but I'd not call it a date. She turned up for the night out and because he said he'd pay for her drinks. She didn't even like him all that much. He was pretty gutted, but after seeing her around a few times since then (she and my by then girlfriend were sharing a house), I came to the conclusion he'd had a lucky escape; she was one of those girls who knew she was good looking and used it to her advantage. Not a very nice person, frankly.
