Men in relationships with girlfriends and wives, how did you meet? Was it through intentionally going out to pick up women or were they introduced to you through your social circles?

  1. I kind of always knew her but never really was interested in her until last December. I don’t what it was, her hair that day, or what she was wearing. I was at school picking up my littles and she walked out of the staff lounge in front of me and it made me go “WHO’S THAT?!” out loud. She heard and whirled around and came and talked to me for a few minutes. We traded numbers and at first started texting and calling until Jan 24th when I said want to go out to eat? She said “absolutely” and now it’s been just about 10 months! She is amazing and we have the healthiest relationship either of us have ever had. It’s great!

    We kept on the DL for about 3 months until the news broke in our community and everyone was very surprised and very happy too. I’m almost convinced her and I getting together was a setup by our friends 🤣

  2. Met at bar. She happened to be sitting near me and I brazenly told her to get me a beer and her phone number to amuse my friends with the absurdity of doing such a thing.
    Moved across country togethera couple weeks later,
    Married 3 years later.
    15 years of marriage, 2 kids and several moves across the country and we still act like newly weds.
    Life is good.

  3. We met on a dating app.

    All of my other exes I met by going up to them and saying “hi”, or something like that.

    I have *never* dated anyone my social circle introduced me to. Quite the opposite. Whenever my (female) friends tried to hook me up with one of their friends, it’s always been *terrible*.

  4. Tinder!

    Last long term relationship was also through Tinder.

    I’ve always loved dating apps, as I tend to skew introverted and don’t love going out. But I know they’re a minefield for lots of guys that struggle with them.

  5. She was my bartender at a local pub I would go to 3-4 times a week. The sorta joint where when one regular gets married everyone from the pub gets an invite.

    I mentioned to the owner (a good buddy who stood up in our wedding) I thought she was cute, then I went about being a decent customer and human. We became friends. Found out we had mutual interests, and a bunch of mutual friends. I bought her a copy of a book I thought she’d be interested in and helped her out with some stuff for her kiddo when she couldn’t get off of work.

    At the poking and prodding of our friends we eventually got drunk and hooked up.

    Been doing so ever since.

  6. At work.

    Our first interaction was a phone call. I’d been passing the phone to colleagues trying get them to do it because I hate phone calls.

    They refused to do it, mostly because they enjoyed watching me squirm.

    The point of the phone call was to arrange some food for a meeting and I was actually pretty fucking rude to her.

  7. I met my wife at a party – didn’t know her or any of her friends. Just went over and said hi and introduced myself. Asked her questions and exchanged numbers. (Actually we were using blackberry messenger back then)

    She said she had a boyfriend, so I told her to call me when she dumped him and she did.
