A fetish dating site (that doesn't claim to be a fetish site - but caters to Englishmen and the foreign women who love them, so I call it a fetish site) eleven months back in March, 2011. 4,000 miles long distance, one date that lasted five days, weekly phone calls, email, photo-shoots, and silly cards back and forth. My parents like him better than they did my ex-husband.
His sister and I were best friends since 6th grade so I've known him ever since then. We just got together about six years ago though... Well started seeing each other. We were on again off again until about three or four years ago.
We met 13 years ago, at a beach party, apparently I kicked sand at him though I don't remember it (thanks Vodka!). He found me 9 years later on MySpace (when it was in its hayday). At least the site was good for something.
In light of Valentines Day... I'm single and just being nosy! Share your stories here. I'm curious.
P.S. Sorry if this has already been a discussion, I probably missed it!
On Myspace of all places and we don't use it anymore. I had no idea he only lived 10 minuets from me and we knew some of the same people. It was really weird because I noticed him 3 days before he friend requested me. I saw him post on a girl's wall that I know and this may be mean but I was wondering why he was asking HER if she was seeing anyone because he's just too cute. Then I found out after we got together that they have known each other for a long time and it the question wasn't intended in THAT way, just conversation. 3 days later I have a new request and I was SO happy because it was the cute guy I was checking out It will be 3 years in March.
We actually met in the adult section of an online community that doesn't even exist anymore. We were sort of checking out each other's posts, and then one day he IMed me in such a sweet and gentlemanly way, I was won over right away. He was in Texas and I was in Arizona, and within 3 months we knew we could not live without one another. He hopped a bus and came to be with me. Almost 9 years later, we are more in love than ever.
I was in High School, he was an adult (still is, at least physically) a friend introduced us. I wasn't all that crazy about him as boyfriend material, I though he was too old, too hairy and I though he was a drug dealer. LOL! (He wasn't. It must have been the facial hair, the mullet and the Black Sabbath T Shirt. Plus the fact that he got really close to my face and whispered, "I'm so wasted." Yeah. That was a LONG time ago.)
Mine was my best friend during a really heard break up with my high school sweet heart. He went out of his way to keep me busy so I wouldn't get down about me and my ex being over. Went from friends to dating, we had classes together at my college.
