    We met on Grindr. Had dinner and drinks (no sex). Did that a few more times and realized the attraction was mutual. Nearly a year later we are still going strong.

    We met on a similar site like RJ, but it has been defunct. We started off as friends since he lived in a different state (We still do!) and hit it off real quick. We became best friends. We had a lot in common, but have our differences. He was unsure about himself and he thought he needed to be with a girl. I respected that. I waited 4 years for him to realize that he loved me, but didn't want to admit it. We have been officially dating for 8 months now and still going strong.

    We were both store managers at the time, we hung out at Meeting found out we lived close by each other in WEHO so started hanging out at clubs. One Sunday night at Mickey's retro Sundays we just held hands then kissed. Took another month before we had sex, it was scary going from friends to a couple, But here it is 17 years later, still together and with a 5yr old.

    A lot of guys on the site already know our situation, but for any newer guys, my s.o. (BGcat57) and I met here in Forums in '07. We started noticing each other and agreeing on various topics. We e-mailed back & forth, then phoned each other - and never met for about a year. We lived about 3,000 miles apart (opposite coasts of the U.S.) We made a plan and met at an airport. We spent the weekend together. Everything went so well that we did that again, over & over. Finally in 2010, we moved in together. (He moved west). Now we're engaged. Whoever thought that would happen on (what used to be) a health & fitness site?

    We met on Plenty of Fish in 2010, it started with a hello; then weekend visitations transcended into moving in together 6 months later ( which was hard but we got through it), then moved across the country in 2012, now going strong after 4 years.

    Great question since it's fascinating to learn how people meet eachother.

    For myself I met my former BF who I was in a relationship of nearly 3 years with through a mutual friend of ours.

    It's ironic that we were all hanging out at a gay bar and for months prior to meeting him I was hitting up gay bars with my wingman hoping to meet a guy like him. Also funny since I was tired from work, just wanted to stay home and relax on that Friday night. It's crazy to think I came *this* close to not even going and never meeting him but my mutual friend summoned me to join them. He told me he's new to NYC and doesn't really know anyone else. So I went, met him and was instantly attracted. We became friends over the course of a few months (by that time I developed a major crush on him) Till then it had been the 3 of us hanging out all the time but when our mutual friend was sick I invited him to hang out with me with the intention of telling him I had a crush on him; major risk but I made a thread about it here wondering if I should tell him or not and the RJer's at the time told me basically if I didn't tell him I would most likely regret it.

    Building up to telling him I was soo nervous and he could tell what I was going to say (he was my 1st BF and he had more experience dating than I) After I asked him if he liked me also he said somewhat amused of my obliviousness: "Of course! Why do you think I've been spending all this time with you?"

    From there on out we were a couple, 1st relationship for me but it was intensely passionate. Hoping to find that again soon.

    I met this one guy at a gay bar a long time ago. We hung out, chatted, dated, talked on the phone. Then we sort of made it official after 2-3 weeks later (1st official bf). My 2nd ex-bf and I met on online dating. We had coffee dates, hung out a bit then he invited me to sleep over. After about 5-6 dates, we made it official. We had a great 2 yrs 10 months run together. I moved away now, he moved on and I'm kinda still dating around.
