My future wife and I met in 2002 while we were both working for Royal Caribbean on the M/S Vision of the Seas. We were at a crew party on the back deck, and when the party ran out of alcohol I said to her, "I've got a bottle of wine in my cabin."


How does anybody ever meet if it's not work?  Other than dodgy dating sites...

bars I guess?? If you're willing to accept that AT LEAST 50% of people there aren't looking for an actual relationship.

Maybe through meetup groups/hobby groups?
My, how time flies....

I think through friends seems to be a common one as well, even loosely. Like you meet someone randomly, realise you have mutual friends so they must be ok, and then boom... Relationship.

The last serious relationship I had before my husband, I met him through a message board but we had real life mutual friends. I was trying to wrap my head around some music software and they suggested him as someone who could help. We wrote some great music together, had a lot of good times but then I got sick and he wouldn't move out of his parents house so that didn't work out.  I actually met all my UK friends who introduced me to my husband through him so it worked out OK in the end ;)
