    I can start. I met my ex-boyfriend through a friend one night out. She introduced me to the sweet older bartender. We were together for 10 months.

    Well, not an ex but I actually met him in a bar. After giving up on finding anyone and just deciding to enjoy my life, I met him and we just celebrated being in a relationship for 3 years now.

    Met him through a mutual friend in a gay bar pride weekend. I was eyeing him up from when walked in the door. He was hanging out by himself, neither of us knowing we were both there to meet the same person later on.

    Dated 6 months then he had to leave when his visa ran out. We broke up shortly after he left. Just couldn't work out. I was heartbroken for awhile. But such is life.

    Awesome, thank you guys. Being gay often leaves me feeling disconnected from mainstream society, heteronormative values don't always translate flushly. And if we are meant to learn from our society than where does that leave a young gay man trying to figure out what is normal or healthy for him in terms of dating and relationships.

    I'm not sure a meaningful relationship is anything someone can search for rather than hope and wait for. But I was and am really curious at how all you other guys are meeting and if any of us really can find love.

    Once again, thanks for shareing!

    My husband and I were bar buddies back in the day. We both had boyfriends when we met, but hung out and were social together at the bar. We both broke up with our respective boyfriends a couple of months before we formally got together. The timing worked out perfectly. We've been together nearly 13 years now.

    We met online while looking for a hookup but were on the fence about actually hooking up. So we decided to go have dinner first, where we determined we weren't interested in dating but decided to hang out as friends, then a couple months together started dating, at which point I almost immediately moved in. We were together four years and are still friends three years after breaking up.

    I met my most recent ex at work, he was a volunteer fire fighter and I had to process his resignation paperwork. We were together from 2006-2012 (he decided he was straight earlier this year).

    My current BF and I also met at work. He was a sheriff's deputy assigned to the city I worked for. We've been together since 2007.

    Yeah, for a few years we had a three-way relationship. Very complicated and I would never do it again.

    I was living in Prague, Czech Republic at the time. I put an ad in a Czech dating site and that's how we met. We were together for 4.5 years.

    Met at a Pride festival. He's a financial advisor and was working a booth for his company. I stopped, answered a trivia question correctly and won a T-Shirt. He became my financial advisor and shortly after I asked him out. Dated for a year and half. Still great friends (and my financial advisor). icon_razz.gif

    My previous boyfriend and I met in an AOL chat room back in 2002 (remember those?). We were together for 9 years until he suddenly died of a heart attack at the young age of 54. I was heart broken. Then 8 months later I signed up on Adam4Adam and this HOT young thing contacted me (21 years younger to be exact) and we have been together now nearly 6 months. Life is amazing. You can be at your lowest point one day and your highest the next. Wish me luck.

    He tried picking me up at a bar and I shot him down. Met him a couple days later through a mutual friend. Been together 3 years now.
