    With Valentine's Day coming up, maybe some of the couples out there could share their stories about how they met and fell in love.

    One fine day the sun was shining and the birds was chirping, 2 soul mates found each other when Cupid shot them both with his Simultaneous Double Shot.

    They fell for each other hard and was so in love.

    Life was good.


    Then came a SLUT who ruined EVERYTHING!

    The end.

    Met on FB a couple years ago. We were living 1500 miles away from each other at the time. Fell in love. Moved in together.

    The end.

    Like SFYogi mine was also a 1500-mile connection, facilitated by the Internet. But more accidental than intentional.

    We were chatting in AOL chat rooms for over a year. I made no moves on him, was living with a BF. But that BF was a handful, and put me through a series of rapid-fire breakups & reconciliations. I was getting dizzy & sick of it, and said so in AOL.

    This guy in Houston saw his opportunity between one of these breakup periods, when I had moved into my own place, and made his move on me, as he later told me. I flew 1500 miles down to Houston to meet him at his invitation, having gotten his picture online.

    Or so I thought. Lots of guys emailed me their pics, and I captioned & stored them in a folder. But in this case I made a mistake.

    I arrived in Houston, and went down to baggage claim where he was supposed to be waiting. But I didn't see him. The area finally cleared out, and I noticed this guy dozing in a chair. As I approached I recognize him, but it's not the guy I'm expecting. He woke up on his own and also recognized me and introduced himself. In a panic I realize I made a major screw up, and I'm 1500 miles from home!

    But I show nothing outwardly, and greet him graciously. He's got a limousine waiting outside (another strange story itself). Having little option so far from home, I go back with him to his place.

    Turned out he was absolutely adorable. We began an LDR, shuttling 1500 miles back & forth monthly, both being retired. After 7 months he proposed and I accepted.

    And so that's how I met my first partner, by accident. I loved him more than any person in my life to that point. I never knew love could be so wonderful. And then he died.

    I've been through it all. And then fell in love again, against all odds. I'll never win the Power Ball Lottery in the US, but in the gay love lottery, I've totally trumped the statistics. Maybe the secret is to not leave yourself to chance, but take charge of the situation?

    Here's some more for you Hothouse; very sweet indeed!

    http://www.realjock.com/gayforums/101902


    Here's ours:

    I met Bill at a gay club here in Vancouver in 1989. He was looking up at this giant rack of gyrating disco lights and spinning mirror balls. The rack, unstable, was swinging back and forth over the dance floor.

    I walked up behind him, and spoke into his ear (loud music) and said,
    "If there's an earthquake we're all going to die. " He turned around and gave the most warm and brilliant smile, then turned beet red visible even in that lighting and I could feel myself blushing as well. This coming Nov will be 23 years.

    On a Sunday evening in 1992, I went into a cruise bar in Kansas City called the Dixie Belle. This was after already coming from an afternoon of drinking at a country bar's beer bust. "He" was standing against a wall in a pair of jeans, belt with a big silver buckle, black boots, red shirt with silver collar tips, and a black hat with a sterling hat band. He wasn't dark complected but did have a black moustache. I passed by him several times (shy) before finally getting the courage to say anything. I had noticed him watching me. We visited. He was the designated driver for a couple of out of town friends he was hosting. When they got ready to go, he asked for my number. Yeah...right. I know how that goes. (before cell phones). Work my way to the bar, find a "trick card", try and locate a pencil.... Then he would never call. So, I asked him if I was wasting my time to give him my number or would he really call. I figured he would never call, thinking I was WAYYYY out of my league. He very "firmly" informed me that if he said he would call, he would call. He had an angry look in his eyes like I had insinuated that he was a liar. lol So, I took a few minutes to get my phone numer for him.

    He called me Monday evening and our first date was that next Friday evening. He stayed over. On Saturday morning, we went to the Farmers Market down in the River Market. We spent the day together before he had to head home and do chores. It was almost like love at first sight. We just clicked and we're still together.

    I hope they do as well. There are some here that have great stories of how they met, but have yet to post them on any of the topics I referenced for you.

    Hopefully they will on yours!

    warmly,

    Well I guess we're some of the poster boys for R.J. Forums! We each joined R.J. about 5 years ago. We were on opposite coasts and began to notice each others' posts and we began commenting a bit to each other. Then came e-mailing, and phoning after that. Later we were spending literally hours a night on the phone across the country. After several months of this it was time to meet. We chose the airport in Phoenix. I got there on time and was waiting for him (but I was at the wrong gate!) I must have looked like a "no-show" and I found him finally. We met in the Baggage Claim dept. and the thunderbolt hit us. It is so amazing meeting someone you've been talking to by phone for so long. We'd seen pictures of each other - - - and he even sent me a video - - - but seeing each other - and kissing for the first time - - - it doesn't get much better than that.

    We hit it off that weekend and had many more cross country visits. It all went so well that here we are living together in California.

    How we met

    There is this app called Grindr lol. SO, he messaged me a Sunday night on Grindr, where I had half naked pictures of myself. Then we started chatting: "you are hot", "you look great", naked pictures of each other went both ways. Finally he asked me if I was free that night, I said 'yes' and he picked me up outside of the bar where I was that night.

    How we fell in love

    He(Joey) drove me to a 'beach' here in Toronto, it was after midnight. We were walking next to each other, we started kissing cause there was no one around at that time. I felt an immediate connection with that first kiss and so did he. We were making out every two steps. We spend like 2 hours laying on the sand, making out and having a good time overall.

    Unfortunately I was only visiting Toronto. So I went back to my place in Montreal and I moved on. I knew it was not going to work to have a bf who lives 5 hours drive away, been there done that. So in Montreal I ended up meeting this other guy("bartender", I wont use his real name in this story) at a bar, we started dating. Things were OK in the beginning but I didnt feel that connection at all, I was kinda hoping things were gonna work out in the long term. Then Joey started texting me saying he misses me but I wouldnt text him back, not while I was dating this bartender. Finally me and the bartender got into this massive fight and we broke up, never felt so relieved in my life.

    I visited Toronto again and I texted Joey, he was upset cause I literally ignored him. I told him that I was dating and I didnt want to feel like I was cheating. I didnt want to tell him straight up that I was dating either mainly because I was afraid to hurt his feelings. He understood...ish lol. I had a work project in Toronto so I stayed here for a bit. We started dating, we would go every night to the lake and he would bring blankets so we could enjoy the night together asking each other questions and getting to know a bit about each of our lives. Finally I knew I was capable of living in Toronto so I decided to stop paying double rent and move to Toronto and start my new life with Joey. We fought and argued multiple times during the beginning, we would end up crying like idiots and then making out and having sex. We moved in together after two months dating. I met everyone in his family, they liked me, he met everyone in my family, they liked him as well. We got our first dog Kiba 5 months ago and he is like our child right now lol. We've been together for a year and half now icon_biggrin.gif

    thats all!

    We met September 26. I had just returned to my second year of law school at the U of Florida from a fairly sexually dry summer in my small ultraconservative hometown. The first chance I got I raced to the closest gay bar in Jacksonville, FL. I was not particualarly fond of the bar, rarely finding anyone that I felt was attractive there, but it was the closest. That night there were five absolutely stunning guys...what a nice dilemma. Which one should I talk to? Why not talk to the closest one and if he doesn't work out, move on to the next? The closest was my soon to be partner. We danced a bit, I asked him to my motel and we spent the night together. He got my name, address and phone number the next morning. I presumed I would never hear from him again. He wrote me a thank you note and said he'd like to see me again. For the next six weeks, we burned up the roads between Gainesville and Jacksonville. On Halloween, we spent the night in a Jacksonville beach motel, and in the morning, went for a walk on the beach. In a tacky tourist shop there were some sterling silver puzzle rings. I bought a pair and we "exchanged rings". Ten years later, I had those same rings copied into gold. Twenty-five years later I surprised him with twenty friends (flown in from Florida) at the Savoy Hotel in London for a black tie anniversary dinner. Forty years later, I still was wearing my gold puzzle ring, but he's now wearing a ruby eternity ring...ruby is the commemorative stone for a forty year anniversary. Now going strong and approaching 43 years this year, I know what true love is.

    Rigsby - what a wonderful and inspiration story, I'm sure you never thought that meeting a guy in a bar and sharing a dance would end up being a dance that has lasted for 43 years.
    There's no doubt that you do know what "True Love" is - and you and your partner are fortunate to have been able to share that love for over 4 decades.
    Most of the guys on this site weren't even born when the two of you met!
    I know that you and your better half are a great example to all those guys searching for "the one." - thanks for sharing.
