    They Fell In Love From Different Continents

    From Redditor u/Gileain:

    I was using a dating site to find other single parents to have another adult to talk to when I took the kid out to do things. Because of odd hours, I ended up talking to a guy from London. (I was in Atlanta, GA at the time) After 3 months of ridiculous phone bills and two trips, we got married. Now, 16 years later, he's getting to vote in his first presidential election.

    They Met On A Movie Set, Thanks To A Child Actor

    From Redditor u/GlamorousHousewife:

    It was my first day working on my very first movie set.

    I was the on-set customer (basically anything to do with actor's clothing was my job).

    It was a kid's movie so obviously, there were a lot of kid actors running around. As I walked to set for the first time from the trailers one of the kids pointed to a man I had never met and said to me, "that guy loves you" loud enough for both of us to hear.

    I was mortified.

    But I looked at him and smiled and said, "apparently you love me". He said, "I guess I do".

    We celebrate our 16th wedding anniversary in August.

    She Tried To Teach Him How To Play An Instrument And He Was Hopeless At It

    From Redditor u/Munxcub:

    Had a job at the fort (historical site, tours, and stuff). I was a musician and they asked if I could try learning to play the bugle. The boss' daughter had a friend who played trumpet. She tried teaching me but I was hopeless. A few months later I shared a three-legged kitchen chair with her at a new year's party.

    Several months of dating go by, we're watching TV and a Monty Python commercial came on, at the end it says "if your girlfriend laughed at this, marry her". She did, so I did. Will be married 12 years this fall, with 2 kids, and I still love her more than anything.

    They Bonded Over Dogs On A Hike And Now They Go On The Same Hike Every Year

    From Redditor u/with_intention:

    I was hiking up the mountain with a group of friends, 3 male:3 female so even ratio. He was hiking alone with his Saint Bernard. My Great pyrenees wasn't with me bc she was too old for that difficult of a hike but seeing as I am a fellow big dog lover and owner, I ran up to pet his dog. I said, "he's still a puppy isn't he?" He responded, "yeah, how'd you know that?" I said, "his hips are still taller than his shoulders." Small talk and then we part ways to continue our climbs. He continues down. We continue up. My friend asks me why I didn't ask him out. About five minutes later I turn around and race after him. I somehow catch him and gracefully suggest a dog date. He immediately says yes and asks for my number. Every year we spend our anniversary on the same hike. Thankfully the dogs fell in love as fast as we did too! Two years, got a house together, another Saint Bernard and we've made it to the top of 10 mountains together. Oh and he beat cancer. We're very fortunate.

    They Met At Work And Had A Date In The Snow

    From Redditor u/ctess:

    I am actually marrying her today after 7 years of being together but we first met at work in a restaurant. I was a sous chef at the time and she was the hostess.

    We had an open line kitchen and the hostess desk was about 10 yards or so away. To get her attention when it was slow I would throw random small things at her across the line.

    But the day I fell in love with her it had snowed and she had come over to my place for the first time. We ended up having a snowball fight and wrestling in the snow. Afterward to get warm we snuggled inside and I knew in my heart I loved this goofy, gorgeous woman.

    She Worked At A Gas Station And They Were Hypnotized By Her Eyes

    From Redditor u/rondaspinksock:

    My wife works at a gas station, I'd go in just to see her, I don't know how much money I spent to see her beautiful blue eyes. We would flirt back and forth and one day she was on my list of suggested friends on Facebook. I added her and sent her a message. We started spending time together and the rest is history. Her eyes catfished me though, they were contacts.
