I got my current boyfriend at a drunken freshers week social 2 and a half years ago, having only spoken to him for about half an hour that afternoon while he was playing darts with my flatmate. The rest, as they say, is history!

Ok, this is long but hopefully worth reading!

The first day I moved into halls at uni there was a fire alarm. Up until it went off I had just been in my room unpacking my stuff and I was in a studio flat so had no flatmates to introduce myself to or anything so I hadn't talked to anyone yet.
When I went outside I was standing alone and pretty much everyone else was standing in small groups with their flatmates. I then saw a korean guy I had found online who was in the studio flat next door to mine, and he was standing with 3 or 4 other people. I'm usually quite a shy and unconfident person so it took me a few minutes to work up the courage to go up to him and introduce myself as his neighbour. From that, I got talking to the other guys standing with him, and ended up socialising with them for the rest of the night, and the next two nights.
On the third night, we were predrinking in a kitchen with a group from the same halls, and two of the guys were gonna go into town so I opted to join them. I wouldn't have done this if I wasn't drunk, because they aren't really the type of guys I would usually hang out with.
When we got into town we started to queue to get into a club. It was a long queue and I needed to visit the ladies room, so I told them I was going to go use the loo in a smaller club that had no queue a couple of doors down. When I came back, they were gone, so I texted (or thought I texted) one of the guys, John, except I had actually got names mixed up and it wasn't John I had come out with, it was Jack. John texted back saying he had decided to call it a night, so I assumed they had left (even though we had just got there ) or just abandoned me.
I would have just gone back to halls by myself then, but the city centre isn't walking distance of the student village, so I would have had to get a taxi back. I didn't want to pay the whole fare myself and didn't really want to go home yet either so I went back to the club I used the toilet in and started going up to groups and asking if they were from my uni in the hope that I could join a group and get a taxi back with them at the end of the night. I had no luck, and was starting to feel a bit stressed at the situation, so, being a smoker who had come to uni with a resolve to quit, I went outside the door where people were smoking and, without even looking first at who I was approaching, asked the nearest person if I could buy a cigarette off them.
It turned out to be my now boyfriend of 7 months, and his polish flatmate. They both go to the other university in the same city. The flatmate said they'd give me a cigarette, I just had to talk to them. So I started a conversation and I ended up going back into the club with them for a few hours. After, they invited me back to their flat which is less than 5 mins from the club, I went and ended up sitting up with my boyfriend in the kitchen till about 5am talking about anything and everything. I ended up staying the night and we've seen each other almost every day ever since. I'm pretty much living at his flat now and we're moving in a house together in the next couple of months.
It really does feel like destiny brought us together, that we were meant to be together and all that. If that fire alarm hadn't gone off on the first day, or I hadn't worked up the courage to introduce myself to my neighbour when it did, we would never have met. :love:
Did read, was still a little longer than neccessary :tongue:


All my exes were at school, or most recent uni. Guy I'm kinda casually seeing atm drunken night out, he's a friend of a friend, ONS that turned into something a bit more when we talked all through Easter.

Both volunteered at a Film Event thing. I was kinda forced into volunteering else I'd fail my 6th form course.
Added each other on facebook, talking into texting into meeting into dating.

The internet age is upon us <3.

We were at a dig at a roman villa and he'd caught my attention for some reason when he turned up late one day about 10 minutes before I was about to leave and sort of mumbled something and went off for a cigarette (he's stopped smoking since, ha) and I kind of hoped he'd turn up again because the entire place was filled with socially awkward pale boys and I think I was just springing on the one piece of potential there.

Anyway he came again one day and I subtly forced myself on him ("oh I don't have a partner to work on this with...anyone want to..? :awesome:) and then by a stroke of luck missed my bus on the way back and had to catch one with him and we had a nice long conversation.

Thought I'd never see him again until he got my full name from a mass email we both got sent and asked me out for waffles on facebook :mmm:

The rest is history, we still have yet to go for waffles though.

A mutual friend introduced us. Not in a "You guys should get together way", but in a "let's all go for a drink and by the way my friend's coming too" way. He bought shots for everyone. I was the only one who declined, thus making myself look like a stuck up cow (I wasn't feeling well, I'm not usually one for declining shots). He spat a Blackjack shot all over himself in a rather unattractive, but amusing way.

I think he added me on FB, along with my other friend. Noticed with vague interest we had a similar sense of humour and taste in music. Got talking on FB a few months later, which turned into flirting, which turned into sex, which turned into a relationship. Bingo.

Got him off the internet!

We met on Facebook when he noticed that we liked the same music. (He was a friend of a lot of my close friends, same school, so a mutual Facebook friend). Realised we 'clicked', (I thought ooh he's a cutie after roaming through all his pictures!), and I remember he sent me a message after a couple of weeks of chatting "Shall we meat up?" :lol: :facepalm:


Met him at break time and we were both so shy we didn't even talk to each other >.<


Almost three years later and we're still together, thinking of getting engaged at some point.

(Basically, the online guarantee ran out so I'm stuck with him!)

Met through an event that our schools organised. Became friends first, and met up every week or so for coffee, and then started dating as of New Year's Day I think being friends first helped, certainly made the beginning of the relationship much easier

Crazy girl, Oadby halls really are walking distance from the City.

I was also hoping you'd fall for the Korean guy, they don't get enough love.

We actually met at a meeting at my Uni's feminist society. I was running the discussion and he came because he actually had alot of disagreements with feminism and wanted to vocalize them. Of course not many people ended up coming, so it ended up being just me and him arguing about feminism for a while, leading to me calling him a ****ing idiot. The next week at the society meeting he came and apologized. He kept coming to meetings, and eventually asked me out.

So I would say, if you're in Uni, to join some societies, because that's a good way to meet people with the same interests as you.

I chatted to this guy online for about a year, just as friends as he was totally loved up with his gf. Then he broke up with her and immediately started asking me out. He got me to add his friend as well. The 3 of us decided to meet up eventually. I got there and thought, "Ooh phwoar, look at your best mate.... Damn it!?". And yeah, that's it, we're engaged now
