How We Met Stories

You’ll find nothing wrong with enjoying casual hookups But a couple of months of swiping right and having a great time can lead the largest commitment-phobe to miss substance.
The thing is, it isn’t an easy task to meet people – aside from single people you might form a meaningful reference to. And, let’s face it, it’s more prevalent to listen to about Tinder horror stories than successful relationships forming through the favorite dating app
A recently available thread on guyQ , AskMen’s Q&A platform, highlighted the “how exactly we met” stories of several guyQ users.
Poll: where did you meet your SO? Was it initial attraction?
Still haven’t found the girl of your dreams? The next answers offers you hope that it is possible – both online (two couples met through AskMen!) and the old-school way. And when you’re already coupled up or not searching for a relationship, it is possible to still satisfy your curiosity with these dating stories.
I met him on the old AskMen discussion boards. We had a platonic penpal relationship for a long period, six months of which was anonymous email (didn’t know his real name, where he lived, etc.). Once I knew more about him and we began to talk via phone occasionally, I couldn’t help but wonder if anything would happen were we to ever be in the same space and both single, but I really valued our friendship and I was actively dating other men (which he heard plenty about), so it wasn’t more than a moment’s wonder, really.
When he finally ended up in my city for an event two years later, we had lunch. Instead of instant attraction, we both felt like, “Well, that clears that up – nothing’s going to happen here.” It was awkward, we struggled to find a rhythm in conversation, and there didn’t seem to be any spark. No matter, I was looking towards introducing him to my city and he was staying at a hotel, so no crushed expectations.
By that evening though, conversation was easier, and it became better and stronger as the weekend progressed.
We ended up dating three years long-distance before he moved to my city permanently, then we were married a year after that.
I went with my younger brother to his friend’s house. I was not even looking for anyone at the time. His friend’s older brother was there…………
We saw each other and he came over to talk to me. It was love at first sight. We have never been apart since we met.
We have been happily together ever since………….
