    He answered my ad on the Miscellaneous romance connection on Craigslist. He was the only one that wrote a genuine paragraph and sent non-naked photos/link of himself. I gave it a shot, we were together for almost 3 years. Good Memories. icon_cool.gif

    Well this is fucking depressing. So if it's not online or at a bar or club, we're screwed.

    Right here in R.J. Forums in '08, even though we lived almost 3,000 miles apart. We each liked and agreed with statements / opinions the other posted form time to time, so we began to write to each other. Later came phone calls, and then the first visits across country. Now - sharing the same state, city, house.

    I met him online. When he showed up I was nervous as Hell, and always have a book with me. He liked books but didn't like to read...oddly he liked to be read to and I love to read and read allowed...he liked to be read to Go figure...we bonded over the "The 48 Laws of Power." Asrology pfffft, but he was a scorpion

    12 years until he died.

    Seems like it. Not surprising though.

    I have a pretty unique story...

    I'm an EMT and got called to a possible "dead on arrival" call on Christmas Eve a few years ago. My Ex was a deputy in the county and also was dispatched to the same call. We got there and it was a positive DOA. We got to talking while waiting for the coroner to arrive. A couple weeks later we were both dispatched to an assault call and saw each other again. Got to talking again and ended up dating and getting into a relationship.

    Last boyfriend I met online on a site similar to realjock (but for swedes).
    We hit it off over similar interests, and finally met at a bar and just talked and talked for 9hrs. It ended at his house, and that led to more dates and eventually a 2yr relationship.

    Do people not meet through mutual friends anymore or do we keep our good looking friends separate from each other?

    Was featured in an article in a gay magazine and he tracked me down and emailed me. We exchanged emails... a few phone calls then he called one day and said he'd fly down and take me to dinner and fly back the next day...

    he never left it's been 10 years

    That's how I met my ex. Went out with a friend one night, he invited one of his friends, and then me and his friend became friends, and then we weren't friends with him anymore. icon_lol.gif

    In a cruise bar.... I finally got drunk enough to have the nerve to say, "Hi."

    October 2012 will be our 20 year anniversary. We've been to a bar maybe 3 times in those 20 years. lol

    me and my husband of 6 years are theater gays. We met when we both got cast in a production of A Chorus Line. Funnily enough, to this day, we both admit it was just supposed to be a show fling. I guess you cant fight when love decides to hit haha

    We met on the beach in Acapulco back in the 80s (when it was fun--and safe). I was wiped out by a wave (embarrassingly) and he ran to see if I was ok. He told me he saw me at a club the evening before, and asked if we could have a drink together that night. I was only in a vacation mood, but yet agreed. We did have that drink, and he walked me back to my hotel..I said I'd invite him up, but I was sharing my hotel room with a friend. He said that although he would like to come up for the obvious reasons, but he said he enjoyed my company and sex wasn't just was he was interest in. (10 points in my book LOL)

    We got our own hotel suite for the remainder of the trip, and after I thought it was the end of a nice vacation romance ( felt like it was a scene from the film Where The Boys Are--as all my friends met boyfriends that vacation), he called me once I got back home in the US. He was from clear across the country. And he follwed me back to visit for a week.

    We had a beautiful relationship--but distance made it tough....Years later he called to say he was sick....and we DID get to spend time together before he passed in the mid-90s.

    The only guy I ever said I Love You to.

    I know--sappy, and we all have stories of loss. But this one is true.
