    Through mutual family friends.

    About a year before we expressed we were gay and interested in each other.

    Still together after 10 years! Own a home together and live and love and fight like any other married couple!!icon_smile.gificon_smile.gificon_smile.gif

    1. Penland School of Crafts in Penland, NC.

    2. It was a process afterwards of me accepting myself & coming out and him being really really patient... but I'd say it was a year or two before we officially thought of it as a relationship.

    3. Celebrating 17 years on October 26.

    On Grindr of all places.

    It happened damn fast, like a few dates?

    Just celebrated our one year end of August!

    -At the gym. He got on the treadmill next to me and told me he thought I was incredibly sexy.
    -About 3 months, dated for almost 3 years.
    -He's a dumbass.

    I met him on AOL...
    followed a week later by outdoor sex, on Lake Michigan overshadowed by the Zion nuclear power plant.

    -where did you meet your boyfriend?
    RJ. I creeped him and didn't say a word, then he sent me a message...annnd then we went for tea. The rest is a lovely 10 month history icon_smile.gif
    -how long did it take you to get into a relationship?
    about a month and a bit of seeing each other to get into the relationship
    -if you broke up, why did you break up?
    Thankfully not applicable. Through great communication that's been avoided, for what I'm hoping is quite a long time icon_redface.gif

    After about 3 months of awkward stares, wondering if one another is gay icon_lol.gif

    Because we're TOO compatible.

    At a second hand store. I had seen him at a bar a couple of times before, but he paid no attention to me. (It's a great story.)
    I'd say right away - started dating and that was it.
    Didn't - 15 years together next month.

    We met on yahoo personals... it wasnt' meant to be anything sexual, was really more about friendship (since I wasn't out or had really accepted my scene yet).
    We exchanged e-mails for 2 or 3 months before we met. He had just moved back to Salina (KS) from Denver.

    The first meeting was nice.. he came to my office and then we went out to eat.
    The 2nd time he came down from Salina, we went out to eat, then he came back to my place, where he got attacked....haha

    We met on RealJock, started talking for awhile, met up finally in Phoenix because I was going to be there visiting my best girlfriend from college...


    1.5 months before I laid the smack down icon_biggrin.gif

    It wasn't working. Our love languages are extremely different, and what we needed from each other could not be given because of past issues...was/is messy still to this day. Love is there, trust is not.

    -where did you meet your boyfriend?
    We were set up by a mutual girl friend. A horrible blind date. Worst night of my life.

    -how long did it take you to get into a relationship?
    After our third meeting we clicked. Three weeks later we moved in together.

    Never broke up.

    1. We met in a random gay club in St. Petersburg Russia (neither of us are from there)
    2. We were working on two different cruise ships, but we ported together in a few different ports, so we had a date in a different country each time. We knew things clicked about a few weeks in....we decided to work a few cruise contracts together (we are both performers), and traveled the world together
    3. We are still together....been 6 years, married for 3 years.

    I met him in a laundry mat. He turned around and smiled at me. You get the picture?
    (And strangely enough he gets annoyed that I have a Broadway show tune reference for everything).
    Also strangely enough I'm still not comfortable referring to him as my boyfriend. It's only been 3 months since I met him. And we only get together sporadically because of his job. But I do his laundry so.... (And yeah, I get the irony that we met in a laundry mat).

    1/ he answered my misc ad on Craigslist, he seems like the normal one on there.

    2/ It took about 2 weeks for us to be in an exclusive relationship.

    3/ We broke up because we were just in different paths/routes in life. It's painful for me to say but that's the truth.

    -if you broke up, why did you break up?

    the current one i met on manhunt. took about 3 months before we started dating.

    the ex i met at uni via friends we had in common. started dating about a year after we met. broke up because of the long distance and we only got to see each other about once every 4 months for a few days

    the previous ex i met on gaydar. started dating after about 2 months. broke up because we kinda just grew apart..or rather i did

    1. Through a personal ad in the local gay newspaper, back in the dark ages when they were published in print, and you had to write an actual snail mail letter in response, which the paper bundled up and forwarded every week or so. I placed the ad, my bf responded. I still have his letter (it was a good one).

    2. Hmm, we were dating from the moment we met, got serious enough to be exclusive in a couple of months, moved in together at 10 months.

    3. Haven't broken up 25 years later.
