I met my significant other 30 years ago today, in an art museum. I'd like to know how you met a significant other in your life, whether or not you are still together. It could really help people who are trying to connect.

Ennis and Jack met at work...I'll bet that's pretty rare.

Here it is from 2006!! Some of you have now met him and most of you know he is now my husband.... The sickly lovey dovey talk has passed now though!

This is the start of me completing all those 'celebrating 6 months' posts.. thought this was the easiest one!

So, how has my life changed?

The obvious one is that I've made (and hope to meet at some point) some great friends.Like Barb, people I would have never had the honor and privilege to even know existed otherwise.  

The second one is that I've fallen in love. And I think that is at least in part because of Brokeback and my friends here.

I met Callum (and I hate telling people this generally as you get some odd looks) through myspace. Yes myspace - now I was not looking for a relationship when i went on myspace and have never been on a dating site - but I was just surfing and having a look at people's profiles who lived nearby in between posting on IMDB tremblay. I came across him - liked his profile - seemed like a cool guy with similar interests. So I sent a slightly flirty message. we started up a whole online conversations And it all went from there.

I had been single for nearly 2 and a half years (after ending a realationship of 6 years that had gone bad - the guy treated me very badly in the end - although not physically, but love is blind and all that) and had been on only 2 dates in that time. I was fine being single but was a little depressed that I had noone special in my life. I think BBM helped me open up my emotions and realise that there was someone out there for me and it was going to happen when it was going to happen, and not to worry to much but that I might have to take some chances here and there.  

My relationships with people online via Brokeback made me realise you could make some good adult friendships online and this made me more open to doing the same on myspace and therfore I took the iniaitive of actually contacting Callum.

It was after talking to Jenny (newyearsday) and a friend in 'real life' - i thought b*gger it - and took the plunge and agreed to a date with Callum.

After I met him - I thought he was lovely but too nice. I actually found conversations I had with Ray and Jenny the other day about him and it was funny looking back. but they said - whats wrong with a nice boy? he might be great for you. Whats the harm in a second date. i went and have been seeing him ever since.

I am totally in love. He feels the same. He basically lives at my house from a Friday night to a monday morning. My mother loves him, my sister loves him, my nieces now love him more than they love me these days and ask to speak to Uncle Callum everytime I answer the phone to them! And my friends think hes a great guy too. We had a great time on a holiday - when it could have all gone wrong and the plan is he'll move in properly after Christmas.

This is a picture of us at my best mates 1960's murder mystery party.

Thankyou BBM!!

Rather unromantic really...
... at a bar.  Tongue

A bar that was a few blocks from my apartment.
A bar that had 2 things I was sorely lacking that particular sweltering summer night -  air conditioning and cold beers.
A bar that is now sadly closed.

Anyway, I walked out of there with my number in her cell phone.  Wink

I have met my significant others several times over the years. Most of the times it has happened when I at least expected it. Among the first times was when I was around 7,8 years old. And I did fall in love with its color and form. And it effected my life deeply. I lived with these small pieces called LEGO all the time.

Other times have been when I first got my dearly Nintendo and could play games like Super Mario bros. and Ice climber.    

Other places where I have met significant others, have been when I been traveling around the world, seeing all sorts of places and meeting all sorts of people. That have been very inspiring for me!

 Smiley  well I use to think like that, bars was a unromantic,  dirty place. Where old people just to hang. But after visiting New York and Five Leaves (a few) times. My opinion have changed dramatically: Now do I think bars are hot, cool and very cosy places to hang at for everyone.

I met the most significant of my others at a bar 27 years ago. I was of age-he was not. I was never much of a bar girl but I had friends visiting from out of town and wanted to show them a good time. We were standing at the bar when a beautiful beautiful boy came up to me and asked me if he could buy me a drink. Normally I would have said no because I was way to shy to deal with that nonsense but I said yes. He went to borrow money from his friends and went up to the bar. Turning back he asked me if I was going to talk him if he bought me the drink. I smiled because he had my number from the jump.

We have been off and on, good and bad and happy together and not for all these years and I haven't seen him for awhile. We always seem to work our way back to our friendship.
