How did you meet your bf?


  • Mar 17, 2011 7:28 AM GMT
    For those of you with a 'bf' (or guy you're intimate with on the regular), how did you meet him: A) online (if so, what site?), B) at a bar/club, C) at the gym, D) through friends, or E) randomly (e.g. bookstore, supermarket, etc.)?

    I'm just curious to see how guys who are in committed relationships have met...

    I met mine in a bar in 1992. We're still together.

    I was out with friends, not looking for a hookup. He was designated driver for some of his friends. It was a cruise bar in Kansas City called the Dixie Belle. As I walked past him, I saw him looking at me with a sexy smile.. He had black hair, a black moustache, and he was wearing a red shirt, black jeans, black hat with a silver band. I made a circle just to look at him again. After having some beer, I finally had the nerve to say, "Hi." (I'm shy). We visited for a few minutes and I thought I had died and gone to heaven.

    When it was time for him to leave, he asked for my phone number. I had heard that before, given out my number to never hear from them.... (Look at my pic. I'm not too pretty. lol..) So, I asked this handsome man basically, "If I give you my number will you really call, or am I wasting my time?". I'll never forget the stern look on his face as he said, "If I say I'm going to call, I'll call." The stern look was one that made me think "how dare you suggest I would lie."

    That was a Sunday evening. He called Monday evening and we made a date for the next Friday. After our date, he spent the night. The next morning we went to the Farmers Market on the Riverfront. We then spent the day together going to antique shops, junk shops, etc.

    (The pairing was a good one... two country boys, living a simple life farming and ranching together.)

    I'll never forget the details of that week. Today, I consider him not only my partner, but my best friend and my rock. October will be 19 years.

    I met my bf through OkCupid initially and then randomly at the gym.

    Can I suggest, though, that asking the question on realjock is perhaps giving you a somewhat biased answer. It's just like going to a club and asking people there where they have met people for dates. You're going to get skewed results.

    I met him on Realjock! I feel it was honestly a sort of "meant to me" type of story.
    We talked a lot on RJ and texted a lot back and forth for several months. From September 2008 through March of 2009. Then one day, I was at work...my last day at work before my Spring Break where I would be off to Florida with a bunch of friends when suddenly I had a Diabetic Seizure(Yes, i'm a type 1 diabetic...16 years strong). My first Diabetic Seizure ever, I ended up falling backwards and cracking my head open. I woke up in the Hospital. The next day, my father flew down to Charlotte(where I live) to fly me home to New Jersey.
    Towards the end of the week, I drove out to a race track in PA where a close friend of mine was racing that day. Nick, my current boyfriend who is a pilot, flew up to an air strip next to the race track to finally meet me in person. We went to the race track together, spent a great day together and from there on it's history. icon_biggrin.gif

    Some of you might know him. It's "misternick" here on RealJock.

    Wow, nice story, bro! Were you guys already living in the same city when you first started talking, or did one of you move?

    had a boyfriend for almost 3 years that added me on myspace in like 2003... and he always sent me messages to get my attention and I barely paid him any mind since he was 3 hours away.

    Then that New Years I went out and he saw me out, came up and said hi... thought he was cute and funny... So we talked some more online, then hooked up for his birthday when he came back in Feb for his birthday.

    After that we did the long distance thing for a year and then 2 years together when i moved to be near him.

    It was a good time, i have no regrets of any of it. But now i am single and back in Nashville.

    I met my current bf at an orgy. He was super hot so I gave him my phone number and he called me a few days later. The rest, as they say, is history.
