    For those who are dating, coupled or just aren't not single anymore how'd you guys meet?

    I'm interested to hear how others met. If you have a story or advice to share let's hear it.

    I'm non-exclusively dating someone I met through here, so I guess I'm one of the lucky ones. I just got a message one day and we became pretty good friends; I personally wasn't thinking about anything more. Then I guess we had "the talk" and it was only funny because I didn't think he liked me like that although I had some feelings. We are vastly different - not to mention the distance thing - but I think this is an overall net positive for me and I enjoy every second of that.

    So if I had advice, it'd be - don't be unnecessarily guarded and be open to opportunities through here?

    Will message you shortly (most likely tonight)...did not forget!

    We started a conversation on yahoo personals 13 years ago.... it was all about friendship, I wasn't ready for anything else. Didn't meet for several months after, but when we did was pretty awesome for sure.

    Grindr, believe it or not. I tested it out, hated it, was thinking of uninstalling it and then one day, I found a new profile and chatted with him. Eventually, we met and the rest is history...

    1989 November. I had been going out almost every night according to my own rule; meet someone I haven't talked to, man woman old young tall fat short (they were people like me). Then I could go home in 10 minutes. I went out a lot and was home half an hour later. This went on for a few years peppered with the odd affair that never lead to anything.

    Then, in November, Bill was in a club, I saw him and walked over behind him. Above us a huge fixture of rotating and syncopating lights wobbled uneasily on its girders. He was looking up at it.

    I leaned forward and said,
    "If there's an earthquake, we're all going to die." He burst out laughing and blushed the most alarming and charming shade of red.

    At the Crowne Plaza NYSC in time square. He literally cornered me while i was filling up my waterbottle filled with watermelon flavored scivation xtend. He had a giant smile on his face and since he has really white teeth and lights eyes with long eyelashes he was gleaming.

    December 12, 1998. A night out by myself after having ended a 3 1/2 year relationship (we were however still sharing a loft - only in NY). VERY cute blonde guy is staring at me from across the pool table. He finally approaches and asks if he can buy me a drink. I tell him he can buy me anything he wants. After talking for awhile he reveals that he is out with some friends for one last night before he moves to L.A. on December 28. So I said,"Well, that gives me 16 days to change your mind." I did. He cancelled his flight and apartment. We have been together ever since. icon_biggrin.gif

    June 25, 1992 - at a work party where neither of us was "out" at the company. He had seen me around the building, but never said "hello" before we met at the party. Two weeks later, we moved in together. That pretty much outed us to the company.

    Gay days Orlando a few years back. Randomly started chatting w a cute guy in line for a ride and hit it off. Both of us were a little shy and I thought I lost my shot when I left the park w out his info but found out later that he had slipped it in my pocket. I didn't notice until a couple days later but it worked out ;)

    October 4, 1992, I walked into a cruise bar in Kansas City called the Dixie Belle. It was late. He was a designated driver for a couple friends he had visiting from out of town. He lived about 60 miles west of the city. I saw him, alone, leaning against a wall. I'm very very shy by nature. I walked by and he smiled at me. I made the "circuit" a couple more times to look at him, hoping he would say something so I would have to stop and talk.

    He was wearing his black boots, black jeans, black belt with his silver buckle, red western shirt with silver collar tips, black Stetson with a sterling hat band. He wasn't really dark complected but had a black moustache and black eyebrows. I thought he was the most handsome man I'd ever seen. I felt I was wayyyyyyy out of my league, but had enough beer in me to think I stood a chance.

    On about the 3rd round, I had the nerve to say, "Hi," when he smiled. He spoke back. I stopped. We chatted for a short while until his friends were ready to leave. This was before cell phones or PDA's, when all bars had "trick cards." He asked me if he could have my number before he left.

    Well...I've been through that. They ask for your number and you know damn well, you'll never hear from them and it was just a polite way of parting. So... I asked him if I went to get a card, find a pen or pencil, wrote my number, etc.. would I be wasting my time or would he call. I'll never forget the look on his face. It was a very stern look, as if I had just called him a liar, and he said, "If. I. Said. I'd. Call, I'll call."

    That was a Sunday. On Monday evening he called. We made a date for the following Friday. The rest is history. From then on we spent all our time together with me moving in with him the following April.

    It seems like only yesterday. I still find it impossible to believe that so many years has passed.

    We have a PG version and an R rated version.

    The PG version is I was dating someone else at the time. He introduced us.

    Boring. I want to hear the R rated version. Do tell. icon_smile.gif


    To answer the OP's question, we met on gay.com. We hooked up and then we dated. It has been 7 and half years and we still haven't moved in together yet. We are definitely not lezzies.

    LOL LOL! I thought about posting the entry from my journal... but it's really long, and way too embarrassing!

    Suffice to say, it was a very awkward three-way. My boyfriend and I broke up months later, and I started dating the new guy. He and I have been together about 7 years now.
