I'm sure this thread has happened before but I'd love to hear everyone's stories!

How did you meet your Fiance/Fiancee?

Or for those already done with their big day how did you meet your Husband/Wife?

I met my Fiance at work! We worked together for about 2 years and were good friends before anything really hit off! I developed a massive crush on him a few months before I got enough courage to make a move! Smiley heart

    We met when we were 14 and starting high school together - and we’ve been together ever since! We are each others’ first & only. Truly my “high school sweetheart” haha.

    We met at work! We work at a LTC facility (I had been a nurses assistant for 5 years there and she was our new charge RN) I chased her for weeks (not having any idea if she was gay or not haha) I finally had to at least try.. we’ve been together 1.5 years, and we’re still working together as well. 😊

    We met online 3 years ago, went on a coffee date and fell hard for each other. Fast forward and now we have 3 cats, a house and a wedding coming up! Couldn’t be happier if I tried.

    My fiance and I met about a year ago online and it took a couple tries to get to our first date cause I kept cancelling on him but by the 2nd date we knew we were perfect for each other. I've never been this happy for this long with anyone and I'm really excited to get to spend the rest of my life with him. Smiley heart

    We actually met in grade 5 and then in highschool we hangout with some of the same people but never really went out of our way to hang out alone. We would always text here and there because we had the same interest in sports and just life itself. I then left our home town for 3 years to go to College and only came back during summers. We hungout one day 3 summers ago and we connected so well. We have been together since then Smiley smile

    I too met my fiancé at a previous workplace! He noticed me and eventually got the courage to sit across from me to be able to talk to me (which was funny as that cubicle was meant to be mine, but I preferred my old one and continued to sit there instead). We quickly became friends and talking to each other during work made the days go by much faster (and our conversations began to continue after work too). After talking for nearly two months, he asked me out to lunch and a movie!

    My partner and I had met several times over the years before we ~really~ met. He and I both volunteered at a local crisis helpline, then again with another local non-profit, then again at a company we both worked at. Then years later we met at a bar, I was fresh out of a separation from my ex-husband (I was nervous about being so into someone so soon after my separation). It was meant to be, I suppose! We've been inseparable ever since!

    I met my Fiance at work, we first met when I was 16 and I couldn't stand him. He was older and didn't go out of the way to make new staff feel welcome as it was retail and a lot of them didn't last. Fast forward 3 years when I came home from university and returned to work there. I decided to give him a chance as I now really enjoyed talking to him and I haven't looked back since.

    He worked on the same job site as my dad. Dad thought we would be perfect together, and he was right!

    I was worried I would be the only one to say "we both swiped right". I was actually visiting famiy from Australia. I was feeling a little lonely and basically just wanted someone to talk to! We obviously matched and talked for a few weeks before I finally got up the courage to go out and meet him. He brought me blueberries on our first date (In Aus they aren't cheap so its a novelty).
    We spent about a month hanging out with eachother before I had to fly home. Once I was back in Aus we actually facetimed daily, morning and night. Until I decided to move back to Canada for almost a year to see where things would go!

    Almost 4 years later & him moving to Australia we are now engaged and getting married in Lake Louise!!

    We also met on POF. I was his first date, he was my third date.

    We went for dinner on a Monday, he talked my east off! He says because he was nervous Smiley winking I loved all of his stories, and couldn't wait to see him again for our second date, which wasn't until the Saturday. We texted a lot in between. It wasn't long until were were spending the night with each other neatly every night. Four months later, we moved in together!

    I was my husband's customer when he worked at FutureShop. I went in for some headphones and we ended up talking for a couple of hours. I went back a few weeks later and we ended up talking some more and he even took my number and we started texting and then had a date and a few weeks later we were meeting each other's parents.
