    Yes! I was introduced to FH in a bar in Belmar on the Jersey shore in 2002. If in of you know Belmar that should make you laugh. He was dating someone else and so was I but we always stayed friends. Fast forward 3 summers later still in Belmar and I made the 1st move. Our friends said they new it was meant to be. We both had our bachelor/bachlorette parties this past Saturday. He went to Belmar with his buddies I went to AC with my girls for a D'jais party it was kinda like being in a time warp. Funny thing is that the bar we orginally met in my parents used to go to before they were married!

      We met at a bar (the Gingerman in Dallas) but a mutual friend introduced us! He lived in Austin, Texas at the time and moved up to Dallas in February (1.5 years after dating long distance).

      We just took some of our e-pics there last weekend (sorry photo whores - I dont have them back yet) :)

          FI and I technically met at a bar...although I hate telling the story like that for that very reason! Everyone thinks you can't meet people at places like this...
          We actually went to college together for a semester (I went to a very small college) and we had 2 classes together, but never spoke. When we saw each other at the bar, the opening line was "You look familiar..." (from me by the way...I knew exactly where I knew him from and remembered him because he was the only guy in my women's history class...haha!) but he thought I went to high school with him....
          Well his friend ended up exchanging our numbers for us because we are both really shy...he called a few days later and we had our first date (at the same bar actually...and it's still where we go every time we need a night out) and the rest is history...

          I tell people we met in college though, so SHHHHHH

              Hell yes! We love it too! Actually, the Gingerman is where I met the match maker too. We even celebrate our anniversary (the match maker and I) there every year - August 10th :) His name is Isie (Israel), so we have a big party and it's called "Ashlisie". We are quite silly (obviously!).

              Ok - that was way off topic!

                What a cute story! :) I met my FI at a club too, but it was through mutual friends, so I doubt that it counts. But I have several friends who have met "the one" that way - it's clearly possible! :)

                  Present !

                  I went to a party held every last Saturday of the month (it's called "Rent" because this is when you have to pay your rent ) to this - now closed - club, the 1415. I was only in Houston since 4 months and one of my friends took me there, together with his girlfriend (I was the one to introduce them to each other, ndlr).

                  So after a few hours I'm there dancing, and there's this cute guy right behind me... he looks down at me and says "Do you wanna dance ?". I give him THE look (up and downer...) and reply "But I'm already dancing !". He didn't get discouraged and said "But do you want to dance... with ME ?"

                  So we danced , we went on the terrace and had a drink and talked and had more drinks , and he did a few things that night that caught my attention... first he had an interesting conversation even though he was a little drunk ! Not asking me "so how is it to be in Texas" or "do you really eat snails" or "is it true French people do not wash", well, the kind of crap you usually hear in a club ; when I got up to go meet my friends, after having left him my number, he actually came and joined us and talked to them ; he spent the rest of the night with me but without becoming nasty ; he kissed me good night but did not ask for anything else. And he is really cute so usually this kind of guys, well, they try at least once Not him

                  So here we are now ! We moved in together about 9 months later and got engaged after a year (on our anniversary ! He says he wants to keep the dates to a minimum ). He's the sweetest guy ever

                  As someone said above : you go to clubs and you are a quality person, so there sure are some other quality persons there...

                    Me, me, me!!! I met my FI in a club, and it was so strange because we have been in the same places quite a few times (we have mutual friends) and had never seen each other... But one night at the club everyone was kinda in a group acting silly, and ended up dancing together. I didn't know that night (which seems like ancient history) that we would end up dating. But now he is the love of my life and a can't wait to become his wife!!!! :-)

                      well if you are counting sorority parties then im a yes as well. it was a private party but guys always crash later in the night. one of my sorority sister's b/fs told a group of friends to crash it since none of them went to college there and in that group of guys was my FI!!!
