Hearing about the way that some couples met can be kind of depressing because it's so romantic or cool and you know that nothing like that is ever going to happen to you. But don't lose hope. For every couple that met in an adorable fashion, there is a couple who met under some weird, boring, or embarrassing circumstance.
Couples Who Meet At The Gym Are So Annoying
It's like, "Oh, so you're fit and take good care of yourself and you also found your true love?"
At least this couple broke one stereotype when she was the one crushing it.
The Only Option, Or The Best Option?
She has a point, really.
But I feel like this isn't the most romantic story in the world...like, did you both just settle, or was the universe forcing you two together?
OK, This One Is Kind Out Of A Movie
I can picture it. They're making eyes at each other across from the pitch.
They go for after-game ice cream and end up at the same shop and make some wisecracks at each other. The rest is history.
This Is Why You Should Always Lie On Your Resume
If this person didn't lie about being qualified for this job, then they wouldn't have met their husband.
That's a pretty justifiable reason to stretch the truth a little bit.
A Best Friend Always Knows
She knew that this guy may not be the best banker in the world, but he was going to be the best boyfriend in the world.
That was worth going out on a limb for.
She Wanted Them For Herself
I wonder if she knew the first time she saw this person audition if they were going to be together.
That's probably true to a point...but it was most likely the music, man.
Thank Goodness For Those Impulse Dating App Profiles
All she needed was an impulsive 10 minutes to meet her future husband.
It's nice that they didn't talk too much on the app and actually went out to hit on each other in person.
There Should Have Been Some Red Flags
Meeting on Craigslist is even wilder than people meeting on Tinder.
It's honestly like one of those urban legends that happened to a friend of a friend of someone you know.
You've Got To Love Those Mutual Friends
I wonder if they knew that they had mutual friends, because if they did know and she ghosted anyway, that's a really bold move and I respect it.
It worked out in the end, anyway.
She's Got Scars On Her Hands, Not Her Heart
Not only did she find someone she was super into, but she also found someone who doesn't faint at the sight of blood and is a caring and nurturing person.
A strong stomach and a big heart is a winning combination.
The MySpace Days Were Something Else
Good for them for not taking no for an answer the first three times that they tried to add him on MySpace.
It just goes to show you, if you keep trying, eventually you'll wear them down.
At Least He Was Honest
There is that weird thing that happens when you're talking to someone but don't know how to keep a dead conversation going even though you want to talk to them still.
Maybe just saying "let's keep this conversation going" is enough to let them know you're interested.
Of All The Things To Have In Common
Do you think that they play the accordion together when they hang out? I bet you that they do.
They probably don't find another accordion player around often enough to let the opportunity pass.
Love Isn't A Mystery For These Two
There's nothing quite like bonding over something together and realizing you're part of the same fandom.
It gives you something to talk about and a cute first date activity—watching your favorite episodes.
True (Crime) Romance
Nothing brings two people closer together than a common cause. Though, this one is a pretty heavy one.
Maybe it was nice to have someone who would know what you were going through.
Even Famous People Will Struggle With Love
It is a little bit awkward that she went on a date with one person and ended up marrying his friend, but guess what?
That's just how the cookie crumbles sometimes.
That's The Right Attitude To Have
How many of us have felt this way at least once in our lives?
Leaving the house is the worst, and going on dates is even more worse. She's literally living the meet-cute dream.
How Very Scandalous
There's nothing quite as spicy as an office romance. They're so taboo, especially when she's your boss.
I'm glad it worked out for these two. They probably proved all those workplace gossips wrong.
The Meeting Of The Nerds
It was just meant to be that these two would meet once again.
It's cute that they didn't forget one another after only meeting once. And they reunited at a ball. It's like a fairy tale.
He Sounds Like A Gentleman
You have to love and respect a man who walks a drunk girl home and then asks her on a proper date when she's sober...even if it is camping, which is kind of sketchy.
But hey, it worked out!
They Went Down That Rabbit Hole
All it took for these two to realize they were made for each other was to find some common ground.
Who doesn't love Alice in Wonderland? Who knew a little pin would bring them together.
The Panic He Probably Felt
I'm sure he was probably freaking out thinking that he just totally bombed and failed to impress this beautiful woman.
I wonder if she ever told him the truth about it or just ran it again.
Can You Say Foreshadowing?
People who work in the movies love a good magical moment, and these two got theirs.
I hope that when they propose, that there is a bagel joke involved. They have to do it.
I'd Watch This Movie
This sounds like exactly the kind of rom-com that I would watch when I was home sick with a cold.
I would sip my soup and watch them fall in love and feel better.
Love At First Semester
That's really sweet that they decided to get married on their dating anniversary.
Sometimes the best love stories are just ordinary ones. We don't always need a whirlwind romance to fall in love.
Not So Annoying Anymore
She owes this annoying girl in the cubicle a lot of having the match-making skills that she had.
Let's hope that she stopped calling her the annoying girl after this.
They Say Love Is Pain
Getting hit with a hockey puck is a small price to pay for finding your true love.
I think it's amazing that they met in grade seven and have been able to grow together and remain dating.
It Was The Batman Voice That Got Her
We all know that she asks for that Batman voice every once in a while.
How adorable is it that he saw her in line and knew that he needed to meet her?
Still, Don't Text And Drive
Even though it led her to find her true love, let's hope that she never texted while driving after that.
Seeing a hot guy would make anyone stop like that in the parking lot.
It's Just The Little Things
Sometimes, it's the little things that we think will have no consequence that end up being some of the most important moments of our lives.
Who knew a braid would lead to happily ever after?
