on FOD, via the random button. I commented on an entry of his.

I know someone who met their fiance on match.com.

Meeting online is not unusual anymore. Whatever way you want to go, in person at different places , or online-just know what your expectations are and stick to that. Don't settle.

Well I'm single now, but I met my ex in a bar. I am surprised I am the only one on this thread to have met someone this way so far! We had a lot of mutual friends though. I made a beeline for him and we spent most of the night talking (drunkenly!) That's the English way however; to ask someone out you must be inebriated. A lot of Brits don't have the confidence to ask someone out sober - what if they said no?!! A comedian called Russell Howard does a great bit on this, comparing Americans to Brits.

I don't think I could meet someone online. I have ridiculously high standards and I'd be terrified to meet them in person and realise they aren't the person I thought they were - in looks or personality. Also when I have had guys message me, the majority of them are so horribly sleazy that it's really put me off online dating.

Im very skeptical about online dating..Like I would love to try it but im so afraid that he isnt going to turn out to be the guy he says he is. Also im a very shy person. I used to have a profile on Yahoo Personals and have had a lot of emails from different guys but have never taken that leap as to return any of them..plus most of the ones who email me arent that great looking..lol

I met my ex at a bar too. Although, I was 17 and he was 21. I was working there at the time, and he was just drunk. haha

I know a lot of people who have had quite a bit of luck on www.okcupid.com. It's free, and has a lot of stuff to do on the site so it's a great way to waste time/procrastinate other things.

I met mine on eBay when he bought something off me. My advice is to not go looking for a man. I've always found oen when I least expected it.

I agree, I met my boyfriend at work, and I was certainly not looking for love at the time. I think people run into problems when they LOOK for love, because then they'll think they've fond it only because its what they're looking for...if that makes any sense lol.

I meant my husband in a Yahoo Christian chat room. I remember being so embarrassed that's how we met so I told people we met at the mall for a long time. Actually I think my Dad still thinks that's how we met :P. I think I'd steer clear of bars and clubs because IMO it attracts a certain type of guy. I guess it depends on what you are really looking for. If it's short term fun than those are the places to be, if not, than I suggest not. Good luck!

I disagree. Sure you are going to get a lot of 'that type of guy' in a bar/club but believe me, a lot of them are not like that! Maybe you've been going to the wrong bars ;) I have met some complete dicks in some, and some absolute sweethearts in others. Just depends I guess.

Haha, I met my bf on plentyoffish.com about 2 1/2 years ago and we told most of my family we met at a bar while he was visiting the area. Then we told others we met online. Now we dont remember who we told what to either. =P Lol!

We worked together at East Side Marios... he was a line cook, I was a hostess. Hostesses here were usually 16 or so.. AKA off limits. Until he found out I was fair game. We didn't start dating until about 8 months after that though...

Our mothers are best friends. We spent a thanksgiving together once about 5 years ago but his first girlfriend (of two years) had just broken up with him so I barely remember him other then he was really quiet.

My mom was talking about how his fiance just broke up with him and I decided to message him on MySpace to just talk because I figured "why the hell not"

Ended up hanging out and getting hooked in a Moxie Java ha ha

My first day at my old job. She was the one person who didn't come and introduce herself to me. This naturally made her the only person I wanted to talk to!
