    where did you meet FI? My parents besides owning the catering business, they also had another company called "Simply Salads" Jonathan was hired as a supervisor. So we can i say I met FI through my dad lol.

    Where you friends first? Yes! best friends (he had a gf, i had a bf) we were super close for 2 years prior to dating.

    How long before you became official? Although he was my best friend i always told all my friends (after every break up or crappy date i went on) "one day i am going to marry jonathan" lol - Then one day out of the blue he wrote me a love letter that literally gave me the chills, from that day on we were inseparable.

    It's been almost 4 years now since i got that love letter :)

    Where did you meet FI? Our two families have known each other for 40 years. His cousin is married to my aunt. We have seen each other at family gatherings off and on for the last 20. It was at one such family gathering when he decided he wanted to ask me on a date.
    Were you friends first? I would say yes. We would talk at the family functions we were both invited to but we didn't really see each other outside of that.
    How long before you became official?Once we started dating it was 6 months to the day.

    Garrett and I met the old school way...through America Online back in July 2003.  My laptop was in the shop, so I had to go to my father's house to use his computer and sign into my high school AOL account to access the internet...Garrett popped up..seems he found me through the membership directory!  old school = awesome!

    Where you friends first?
    I don't think we really were...we've been inseperable since our first date.

    how long before you became official?
    we were official that first night...and it took 7 years for him to get down on bended knee!

    I met my FI on match.com.

    Where you friends first?

    No, we started dating casually and then built to something more.

    how long before you became official?

    It took about six months.  He was laid off at his job and had to move 3 hours away, so we did the long distance relationship thing.  Eventually we got in the same place at the same time, though.  ;)

    Where did you meet FI? I met FI through a girlfriend from highschool. We always hung out and that's how we met.

    Where you friends first? Not really. He was always working on computer projects so he rarely hung out. About 4 months after a bad break up we all started hanging out more and I told my girlfriend (his sister) that I wanted to date her brother. She told him and he didn't believe her.

    How long before you became official? It took about 2 months. He wasn't convinced that I wanted to date him and one night when he was supposed to come visit me at work and didn't I called him up and asked him where the hell he was. He then got the hint and came over and asked me to be his girlfriend.

    -we met at Sandbar in the grove, neither one of us had been there in YEARS and one random night we both ended up there. He asked me to dance (besides being SUPER sweaty) he had the most beautiful eyes so I had to say yes.  He texted me not even 30 seconds after i left to make sure i wouldnt forget him and we never stopped talking.

    On facebook through mutual friends! He friend-requested me and I almost denied him because he was friends with a guy I used to date. =O  But I thought he was cute so I accepted.  We went out on our first date that same week. :)

    Where you friends first?
    Well, I consider him my best friend...but was he my friend before we, like, made out and did the hot monkey dance? Nope. 

    How long before you became official?
    Welllll.....we were "officially in a relationship" on facebook within three days. And we were engaged within three weeks.  =O I know.

    Where did I meet FI? 
    A few months prior, I had started a new job as a receptionist at my company's satellite office.  I went with a friend/coworker from my branch to a documentary screening hosted by a local environmental awareness group.  When the movie ended and the lights came back on, I spotted him across the theater and pointed him out to my friend.  Several minutes later, I was introduced to some coworkers from the other branch, and to my shock he approached our group and joined us in conversation.  As it turns out, FI was friends with an employee at my company's other branch, and had carpooled with him. 

    Where you friends first?

    I wouldn't really say we were friends...we spoke casually on the phone and through MySpace for a few weeks, but it had a flirtatious vibe from the beginning, and we both knew it was going somewhere, even before our first date had been arranged.

    How long before you became official?

    About three weeks.

    Where did you meet FI? I was in the Carribean at school and he worked in the library.  I was passing by him and he offered me his number but I declined as I was dating someone at the time.  The following semester we crossed paths while I was taking a small break and he asked me have dinner with him.

    Were you friends first? We were friends for about 3 months.  I was afraid of getting hurt so figured it best we just be friends.  It was the best decision I could have made becasue he is now my best friend.

    How long before you became official? We dated for 1 year 7 months before he proposed... Best thing ever!!!!

    where did you meet FI?
    I met Fi on Plentyoffish.com
    I had gone thru a bad breakup the week before and my friends forced me to go on a date, I talked to him for a week and remember loving his deep voice combined with his Brazilian accent(yowza!!)....We met up for dinner at Bayside and I did not like him at all!!!! He liked me from the start and always insisted on a second date.....I said no always till Labor day 2 years ago, we went out with my friends and I kissed him in front of the dinner in South Beach......We were on and I broke up with him being stupid and then we got back together a few months ago.......

    Where you friends first? Yes....I think the fact that we were friends first gives us a better understand of who we were at out best and worst....We got to see sides of each other that you sometimes dont see(especially me) when you are emotionally invested in someone....

    how long before you became official? a year and a half :) but the important thing is that him and I are here at this point in our life

    We are all here girls :))

    We met at work.  I thought he was hot but didnt do anything about it becuase we worked together and I thought that would be weird and also because we have a 15 year age difference and I figured he thought I was too  young for him.

    Little by little we got to know each other better and realized we really enjoyed each other's company.  He was my best friend at work, we would always have lunch together, go get coffee or sit in his office and chat.  Little by little I started to notice that maybe he was interested in me too.

    Finally after 3 years of working together and being great friends we kissed after a work happy hour.  From there we started a secret romance because we didnt want anyone at work to  know.  Finally a few months later I transferred to another department and we started dating openly.  That was 4 years ago and we have been inseperable since then. :)

    Love to see all the other ladies out there who met their fiances on the Internet!

    FI and I met on a message board for kids applying to college

    We talked for ten months before we were actually able to meet, with the promise that we'd stay friends if there was no chemistry ...

    ...but there was, and now it's 7 years later and we live together and have been engaged for two months, with our wedding sometime next year!

    where did you meet FI? I was very close friends with his best friends since the 8th grade... We hung out in the same circles, but were never friends ourselves. He arranged a get-together for a friend coming back from Guam (either Navy or AirForce) on Christmas vacation in 2005, and invited me through MySpace since he knew I was friends with him. He organized dinners, bowling nights, movie nights, etc. throughout the month our friend was in town and invited me (along with 30 other people) to each event. After our friend returned to Guam, a small group of 4 of us kept hanging out, and we became the best of friends!

    Were you friends first? Yes, I'd say he was almost "friend-zoned". We went a good 6 months hanging out multiple times a week (either the 4 of us, or just us 2) as pure friends, at least, that's what I thought. We got really close when I had to tell him his gf at the time was cheating on him with a few other guys! I think after we overcame that one, we were inseparable best buds.

    how long before you became official? He decided he was going to make me fall for him, so he started "courting" me, I guess is the closest word, without me even realizing it (I guess I'm really naive!). He would text me, call me, buy me flowers, until me made me develop feelings for him! On Father's Day of 2006 (7 months after we officially met) we made it official. And we've been together, through thick and thin ever since!
