    My friend and I had gone to lunch and he was the bartender. I didn't see him again until I went back to the same restaurant 2 years later. Just so happens, he stopped in for a quick beer, which he hadn't planned on doing. Guess it was fate.

    a former co-worker and friend decided we needed to meet each other,... she was right. we met for a night of pool at the local bar, and the evening progressed from bad to worse to OMG,... the other adults that we each found ourselves in charge of were making total A**'s of themselves,... and our evening changed from hook up to baby sitting,... but we called and talked the next week,.. and agreed not to hold one anothers friends aainst each other.

    been nearly two years,... and we still play pool,.... just not with THOSE friends.

    I was working with a gal and my husband was her son's best friend.  She told me, "oh I have a guy for you."  I had a boyfriend at the time and wasn't interested.  About two weeks later the guy broke up with me and I very dramatically told her that she could have her son's friend call me now as I was unattached.

    We married almost 4 months later.  I won't say it was love at first sight, but it was definitely different and intense from the very first date and grew into love very quickly.  Still married to him 41 years later.  Guess I'll keep him.

    We met on Xbox live actually, we were playing Rainbow Six Black Arrow. He lived about 2000 miles away. We were both having marriage problems, and he was told to take me off his friends list by his wife at the time. About 3 months later, we both separated from our spouses. I had just gotten my internet hooked up in my new apartment and was checking my email, when he logged on (I had kept him in my MSN friends list). We started chatting and 2 months later he made the 2000 mile drive to my home, and moved in. No, we had never met, and I know it seems crazy that the day we met, he moved in, but we just knew. We've been together ever since December 17, 2004. And we still play video games together.
