    I met my husband a LONG time before we started dating. I was actually dating someone. But I remember turning to my best friend (who later was a MOH) and said "He's cute. Short, but cute"

    Our 1st coffee date lasted 5 hours (and we ended up having lunch together)! Good sign. He said he felt I was pretty special when I hugged him goodbye. Aw. 🥰

    Lol. We met in fourth grade, so no it wasn't love at first site. I didn't even have a small crush on him until some point in middle school. We started dating on and off sophomore year of high school.

    We didn't really know each other! We both were in the same group of friends, and didn't get to know each other until we became roommates! Once we were roommates and hung out more, we realized we had a lot in common, and people assumed we were dating because we were such great friends, but we were actually dating other people our first year as roomies!

    I met him on Tinder, and initially thought we'd only make it as friends. But he immediately became my best friend, and I couldn't help but fall in love with him.

    I almost didn't message him back! (We met on okcupid). But his message was really thoughtful and showed he cared about my profile and we hit it off pretty quickly.

    Since we met in 7th grade, at the age of 12, I'm not sure you could call it "love at first sight," but it was definitely something!! I liked him immediately. I think he liked me immediately too. We became fast friends, but didn't actually "date" until our freshman year of high school. That didn't work out, but we remained friendly through high school. I always had a soft spot in my heart for him.

    Fast forward 30 years and we reconnected through social media prior to our 30-year class reunion. He didn't end up going to the reunion, but it got us talking more frequently, and one day we decided to meet up in person. Neither of us still lived in our hometown, but we only lived a few miles from each other. When I saw him again for the first time, I knew I still loved him. He felt the same way! We started dating, and here we are, two years later, happy as ever and getting married!!

    We met on and although it was not love at first sight, he was very nice and a complete gentleman. 1 date turned into 2 and so on, I probably fell in love with him by month 4 or 5 of dating and now can't wait to be his Mrs.

    My first impression of him was that he was loud and annoying which didn’t make him attractive to me, but he was sweet heart and very caring. I fell in love with after our first date we set in his car afterwards and talked all night (literally until the sun came up) about our future goals and mistakes we made in the past that formed us into better people.

    Oh it was definitely not love at first site. I'd walk past his desk at work to get to another desk and he'd apparently try to talk to me and I was like who the heck is this guy and walked faster lol. I'm super shy so I get weirded out when people I don't know try to talk to me

    I met my fiance when I was 17 years old (now 25). His looks got me at first. He was so handsome and took good care of himself. Then I really got to know him and found him to be honest, man of good integrity, and very caring towards other people.

    It was my first day after I moved to go to grad school. he was in the “2nd year” group who invited our “1st year” group out for some beers. I remember snap chatting my now MOH a picture of the two single guys in our group, saying “well I guess these are my choices” and FH was 1 of the 2, but at that moment was more initially attracted to the other guy - HA!

    I only became attracted to FH when i saw how scrappy he was when we all played beach volleyball (my favorite sport). Those are my earliest memories!! Almost 5 years ago.

    Nope! Wasn’t love at first site....for me at least. I met him freshman year of college through some freshman orientation volleyball event. He reached out to me on Facebook (which he said he never does) and wanted to talk to me and know more about me. Literally mid conversation, I stopped responding....I ended up ghosting him for 3 years haha we reunited senior year when my boyfriend at the time wanted to play club football. He happened to join his team. We all became one really close friend group over senior year. When my ex and I broke up after graduation, my fiancé was the one who helped me through it since he knew my relationship with my ex the best. That quickly made us closer and then one thing led to another it definitely put my fiancé’s friendship my my ex to a fast hault, but in the end, it was worth it!

    My first impression was that he was cute and I liked talking to him. We met online but had our first date at Panera. I told my bff to text me in two hours to check but we ended up talking for four and I had all these missed calls.

    I met him online and my first impression based on our first messages was that he was cute and also into the same geeky stuff I'm into! When we first met in person my first thought was that he was even cuter in person!
