My significant other found another significant other and now I am only significant to myself and billions of friends.

College. She organized a bus trip to DC to support reproductive freedom (1992) and was on my bus. I didn’t get to know her until a year or so later when we had both moved off campus and our status had changed.

Mine worked at the same place. She’d worked there a couple years, I finally asked her out. We dated a couple times.

Fast forward 23 years. We reconnect on Facebook. She is married and lives far away. Her marriage falls apart, we correspond a lot. 6 months ago we get together, now we are seeing each other for about five days every month.

She was my first bosses wife (now my sister in law)sister, the funny thing was we didn’t even start dating until, after I left and started a new job elsewhere.

I breezed through the ‘Orkut’ google thing and saw a picture, read a profile, and sent an email. Then we skype chatted overseas for roughly 4 years, and then I moved over and have lived with her for 2 years now. At first, she thought I was a product of her ex-boyfriend doing some weird stuff on the internet (though she didn’t reveal this until a year later). We met in person for the first time after a year of chatting online. I visited her in Ireland.

She’s a polka (polish female), and apparently my American accent was beyond doubt.

We worked together and became friends long before we tried dating. Then we fell in love. 31 years later we are still together.

In a SWM looking for SWW in a Dallas newspaper! I almost threw it away and replied to half a dozen others first. You pick it up for free at various Dallas locations. It was like a game to me. I had a blast checking my mailbox daily for new ones. lol

We knew each other as friends for quite awhile first. M was in two of my classes in my first term back at college after my surgeries, so 3 years ago now. I more quickly noticed his more outgoing and charismatic friend so it was awhile before I got to know M. We were both in a small group of students who went to Bar Harbor for two months in the summer of 2013 for a school project, so that’s where I really got to know him. I was dating someone else at the time, though. I couldn’t stop thinking about M and when my relationship with my ex went sour I knew what I wanted. He’d been crushing for awhile too.

On a website that we both had an interest in. It was not a dating site. We just started talking through forums and eventually started IMing and it went from there. Now we have been together for almost ten years.

During one of my excursions to the Middle East, I was befriended by a Saudi doctor who told me he had an Egyptian cousin in the US and lo and behold the guy lived in my city.
I promised I would look him up next time I went home.
I called the guy and he invited me to a party at his house. All Arabs. Tons and tons of food and constant chatter.
And his sister’s daughter.
Love at first sight.

I wrote my guy a parking ticket. He tore it up and gave it back to me. I could have let him deal with the fines for not paying, or I could have voided it. I chose the latter. We’re coming up on 38 years now.
