Email love (sort of)! That's how our story starts....

(Courtesy of Revival Arts Studio)

Mr. RB & I met online! *Gasp* Neither of us were looking for love either... I mean, the stars had to align for us to meet. We were both dating other people (he was with her for 6 years, I was with my guy for 2 years), we were playing a 30 day free trial game of Catan online that randomly matched us up... had either of us could have slept that night- we wouldn't have been paired up! We talked all night & I added him to my IM chat. That was the last time I talked to him until I moved to Vancouver & was newly single.

During that time he kept randomly emailing me things like "Hey. U good?" or "Whats up?" That was all... One or 2 word emails! It annoyed the crap out of me! Like seriously you hillbilly, you can't even write a proper sentence? So I ignored him.

I had just moved to the other side of the country, I didn't know a soul & I was bored one night- so I emailed him back. He called me that night, we talked for 5 hours straight... and the rest is history! We met in person in Seattle a few months later. The sparks flew & we knew it was going to turn into something serious.

So, he's ashamed of how we met & he won't tell anyone... I'm not at all. I'm an open book for the most part lol. I'm 23 & everyone my age meets people online. You're weird if you don't! He's 35 & his friends feel like if you have to meet someone online you're a pathetic loser. I don't see anything wrong with meeting a someone online... I'd prefer to meet someone online than at a bar. I can atleast e-stalk them before I meet them! lol Ooooh yes. I google everyone & everything!

So there you have it! How did you & your SO meet??


  1. This is such a cute story! Definitely better than meeting in a bar! We met in college, so nothing as exciting as yours :)

  2. What a great story! I would be annoyed with the one line e-mails too though! My hubby and I met in college, he lived next door to my ex boyfriend in the dorms.

  3. For some reason it cut off HOW we met! lol We met playing a free trial game on late, late, late one night! It was free for 30 days (I think I discovered it less than a week before the trial was up) and then you had to pay $20 a year to play online. lol I consider our meeting pretty special too :)

    @Katerina & Morgan: You both met your FI's in college! How cute!! I love those match-ups... y'all are college sweethearts!

    My fiance and I met online too. He laughs and tells everyone we met 'at the library' and I have no qualms saying he met my friend on a discussion board and I met him through her. No shame! I'm 23 also, so maybe it comes with the territory? :)

  5. @Britt: Hi! :)

    That's so funny... it must be an age thing!

  6. We met on the first day of grad school and were both with other people at the time too. We were friends for almost two years and both of our relationships ended during that time - then we just realized we had been in love for who knows how long!

  7. @Fortunate Bride: That's so sweet... :)
