    when you say "albeit" do you actually mean that? I think you mean "whether".

    You MIGHT be "albeit", but it does then more dismissive of the places you mentioned...

    "albeit" simply means "although."

    Grindr

    They always say love hits you when you least expect it and that is the case for me.

    I met the love of my life at the gym. I wasn't looking for a boyfriend at the time. In fact I would go to the gym and would never really engage with anyone other than the ocassional hello. I pretty much kept to myself as this was my own time to reflect on what I was going to do that day.

    I met both my late and current partners in an AOL gay chat room. I subsequently traveled to meet them in person. Of my 2 longest BF relationships, I hit on 1 in a gay bar, and sent an introduction letter to the other following his being featured in a newspaper article about his house.

    I met my husband in St. Petersburg, Russia. We were both working on different cruise ships. All the gay boys from both ships happened to decide to go to the same (and one of the only) gay clubs that night. Our groups met up, and we all started talking to each other. We gravitated towards each other and talked, flirted, etc.
    We ended up having a date in every port that our ships docked in at the same time.... Quite the worldwind experience.
    Fast forward, 4 years later....we are married, retired from performing, and living in Toronto....icon_biggrin.gif

    OK, so five in bars and five not in bars. Results pretty much the same.

    i met my current bf, the love of my life (so far) on..believe it or not...on gay.com! icon_redface.gif

    a "one night stand" turned into a "friend with benefits" relationship that slid into a solid, enjoyable looks like a long term relationship.

    strangely enough...at first neither one of us was looking for a LTR when we met.

    who sez nothing good comes from gay.com, hey? icon_biggrin.gif

    Funny you should mention this...
    I met my first and current boyfriend while throwing up in his toilet one night after drinking...

    He was the friend of a friend, and we went over to his apartment to drink before going out. I had a little too much before he even stepped in the door and he decided to show up while my face was in the bowl.

    Funny thing is, he stayed there the whole night rubbing my back and head... and he didn't even know me!

    Great first impression huh?

    In the military

    Didn't get along too well at first, but then we started to respect each other and admire each other a lot. Been through a lot of stuff together which also helped make us closer, so now we're pretty much stuck together until one of us kicks the bucket lol.

    It's ok buddy, I use to use words I have heard (but don't really know what they mean) out of context ALL the time. I like people to think I'm well educated, but usually it made me look dumb.
    You should probably google or wikipedia that shit next time. Works like a charm.

    I met my husband 21 years ago at the gym. As mentioned several times above, I too wasn't looking for anything, just working out. It's a great way to start something when you know you share a common interest. Plus we never had to miss a workout because of a date!

    Seems like the gym is the most popular place. icon_cool.gif

    I guess I should head out soon, although I'll probably be the only one there. icon_eek.gif (small gym)
