My story is looongggg....
I met my man at the 50th birthday of his godmother - who was also the mother of my brother's then girlfriend (try saying that 10 times fast)
I was introduced to him and his (at the time) girlfriend, and his brother, and felt something for him instantly, I don't know why, or how to explain it, it was just a feeling I had. Anyway, the night went on, we all got ridiculously drunk, and got along really well - his girlfriend (a bit of a prude and a non-drinker) went back to their hotel early and left him and his brother with us - They were actually visiting from Sydney (I lived in Melbourne at the time) and were only visiting for that party.
I remember getting drunk enough to say something to him about how unfair it was that he was so perfect for me, but he was taken, so I coudln't have him - and was surprised that he actually said back to me that he felt it was unfair too, that I lived 1000 kms away. Anyway. nothing happened between us, except for that, really, and a few semi-naughty conversations and flirting... The next day I got his number from my brother's gf and texted him about seeing a band that night - but they didn't come along (dead from hangovers), I think we texted a little for a couple of weeks, then I kinda gave up and moved on (i was in my partying prime!)
A couple of months later, I don't even remember why, I remembered he'd been planning a trip with his brother, and I decided to text him out of the blue and see how it went. we got to talking, and talking, and got to the point of spending hours on the phone every night (I learnt later that he and his gf weren't sharing a bed any more, and were kinda just still living together out of conveniance) He was coming to Melbourne for something inbetween time and I convinced him to come to a party I was having (pretty much as an excuse to get him to come to my house) and he did - he took a taxi from the city out to my house in the middle of nowhere - which would've cost him about $100 - and we talked things through, still felt like there was something there, so a few weeks later he broke it off with his girlfriend, I went up to sydney for the show, and we got together.
We did the long distance thing for 2 years before i finally caved and moved up to sydney (hopefully temporarily) and have now been here for almost 2 years.
So yeah, just shows ya you can meet guys in the most unexpected places.
best o luck!!
