Met my husband through mutual friends almost half our lifetimes ago. We didn't date until many years later, and have been together nearly ten years.

My partner - we met at a mutual friend's birthday party. I had an intense and immediate crush on him, but avoided doing anything about it because I thought he was too young/uninterested. Four months later, we really started talking (and making out) at a party at the same friend's house (I later found out that this friend had told him that I was attracted to him.) We've been together for about 1.5 years now.

Met my partner in high school, reconnected at our 20th reunion, although we were both married, our friendship grew, our marriages ended, and our relationship began.

His OSO went to HS with us too, but she'd moved away sophomore year and we all reconnected on Facebook, basically a little after the 20-year mark.

If we're bringing up exes, I met mine in college. Stay in school, kids!

All online.

I met Fly in an internet chatroom (not romance or sex related) on AOL.

I met Punk through OKCupid.

Fly found Moonlight on AFF because he wanted to experience a FMF threesome. He totally had to talk me into it - there was no pressure, but I was definitely reluctant because I'm not a big casual sex fan. I'm so glad I decided to go along with it!

Both on OKC. I met my ex when sunbathing in the park.

I said earlier in this thread that it seems I have better luck meeting people in real life, but I am also trying to be more active on OkCupid. So, I went out Friday night with a guy I met on there and I really like him. And I'm chatting with another... so we will see!

There is someone else I am interested in who came into my workplace last week and flirted with me outrageously. I hope he comes by again soon!


As an aside, some of the places I have met guys I dated in the past: work, classes, bars, the laundromat, the subway, an interstate commuter bus (that was Cranky - we went out for about 9 months), the city streets, Starbucks, and the post office (my STBX).

I made good friends with a guy & his wife at the local poly meetup a long while back, and have started seeing him a couple months ago.

And last night I had a second date with a guy from okcupid.
That's it for now.

What is a "lifestyle site?" Is that for swingers?

Okay, was just checking your use of the word "lifestyle" which I know is a popular term for both swingers and people into 24/7 BDSM (and generally not used for poly). Thanks.
