    I was having issues at my house and my cousin invited me to stay at her house for a few weeks until I could work things out with my parents. FI was working for my cousin's husband at the time doing construction. My cousin would take her husband lunch almost everyday (as long as he was close to home) and we would eat with them. Not really a romantic story but, it made me realize that everything happens for a reason.

    FI's best friend is my college roommate's brother. We saw each other a couple of times in passing but never hung out until my roommate's graduation party in 2007.

    FI and I went to high school together. We had the same friends, but never really had real conversations. We said hi and bye, and laughed together a couple times, but nothing more than that. Four years after we graduated, we found each other. We used to watch basketball games over the phone, and I finally said I'm coming over to watch this one at your house. Been inseperable ever since.

    We met through at girl that worked at my company.  He was friends with her and i was new to the city.  She invited me out to some things and I became friends with some of her friends.  FI and I were friends for almost a year before we started dating (although I had a crush on him for most of that time!)

    We met on vacation. He is friends with my best friends (now) husband and we all went down to Jupiter for spring training. He still accuses me of 'blocking' him from picking up another girl (completely untrue and I remind him how lucky he is he struck out) we remained friends after the trip and two years later returned to Jupiter and he proposed.

    Internet. Hardly romantic or glamorous, but it's true.
    Ironically enough, we didn't really even like each other on the first date. It was a Friday night, it had been a particularly long day for me, I was on new medication and not sleeping well and on top of all that I had to work the next day. Im sure I was not "at my best".

    A couple weeks later, we decided to try it again and had a great time - we didn't want to go home. So there is definitely something to be said for second impressions!

    we went to the same middle school and high school. In middle school we never really spoke to each other. Kind of an aquaintance relationship. Then freshman year of high school we became best friends and I of course fell in love with him hard at the age of 14 (omg almost 10 years ago haha). But we never even had a real date until a year and half after. We were pretty much inseperable after that and became officially a couple on August 30, 2006 (it's almost our 6 year anniversary)

    We met on Eharmony!  On our first date he hardly ate anything because he had a bad toothache.  He said he almost cancelled because of that but thanks goodness he didn't!

    We met at work. I didn't like him at first, thought he was arrogant. Well he decided to play a prank on me and fill my desk with packing peanuts. I in return covered his desk in cat toys and told him to have fun since he's so easily amused. Next day he sent me a picture of his cat with one of the toys. I'm a cat person so we started talking animals and it just went from there!

    We met at one of his fraternity's parties in March of 2011.  Then in August of 2011 we met for a second time and actually started talking.  The second time was when I was checking him into his apartment on campus and had just started my new job as an RA.

    I was helping a resort open a new restaurant, and he was a chef at another restaurant in the resort. We talked a few times and then he would bring me these fancy lunches that he made just for me everyday; he was so sweet and funny I couldn't resist

    My best friend invited me to a party at a friend of her cousin's house. They introduced me to the friend and, to me, he was just some young kid having a party at his parents house. He was only 19 and I was 22. Then, a few years later, my same friend kept telling me that I should go out with her cousin's friend, that he really liked me. We went out as friends and became really close. I told him repeatedly that I wanted to be friends, nothing more. Lucky for me, he never gave up and we've been dating almost 5 years!

    We met at work. While we worked together on a couple projects, we never really had any conversation -- he thought I was extremely serious and professional.

    I mentioned to a coworker (and mutual friend) on a work trip that I thought FI was cute. Friend mentioned it to FI a couple months later, but he didn't believe Friend.

    And then I invited him to come out and watch football with me and some friends at a local bar. We kissed late that night, and have been together almost a year (next month).

    We met through my best friend from college while I was dating some other guy. Two years later, this best friend was getting married about two months after my ex and I broke up. My ex was the best man in the wedding party and I was a bridesmaid so I was anxious seeing him for the first time after the breakup at her wedding. I didn't realize this until afterwards, but the bride told my FI that I was newly single and would be at the wedding so he called me out of the blue and we hit it off! He took me out on a couple dates the weeks leading up to her wedding and I was smitten.  My friend sneakly put us at the couples table and my ex saw us together and got upset. (Great revenge!) I became his girlfriend shortly after her wedding :)

    I worked at Williams-Sonoma over a holiday season with my now FSIL. She set FI and I up on a blind date and the rest is history! Like Carson said...made me realize everything happens for a reason. I mean, what are the chances I meet FI after taking a random holiday job? If I had chosen any other store, we never would have met. That's just freaky to think about!

    Love the stories!

    agree with PP about things happening for a reason.  I met FI at a bar (haha)...the night we met me and my best friend were supposed to meet up with some of my friends I used to work with (a few from out of town) I hadn't seen a while.  We were in Boston at a concert and my friends were all at the Red Sox game.  Long story short the game went into extra innings and my work friends weren't going to be able to meet up for awhile and our train out of Boston was coming soon.  My best friend wanted to leave to go back to our local bar and meet up with this guy she liked - I wanted to stay in Boston to meet up with my friends.  She won the 'arguement' and we went to our local bar to meet up with the guy my friend liked.  I wasn't happy about it and was kind of in a bad mood...well my FI was his best friend and we started talking while our best friends were hanging out.  Funny thing was I went home thinking he was nice, we took each other's numbers and hung out a couple times as friends.  I liked him, but figured he saw us as 'buddies.  After a month of hanging out, he said 'I've been dying to kiss you'...rest is history!  So, if that Red Sox game didn't go into extra innings we would have met up with my friends in town and I would have never met FI!
