Do Tell: Where's the Strangest Place You've Ever Met a Man?

Do Tell: Where's the Strangest Place You've Ever Met a Man?

There are a plethora of places to meet eligible men, most commonly the grocery store, the gym, or at a bar, but then there are the more obscure places like in line at the DMV or in the waiting room at your doctor's office where Mr. Right could be lurking. The key to meeting someone is always keeping your eyes and ears open while making yourself approachable. There's no right or wrong venue, so ladies, do tell, where is the strangest place you've ever met a man?

alexask, that is the coolest place to meet someone! Uhh...At my school, we can take GE cluster courses for an entire year where a certain subject will be taught for three quarters, and you get a handful of GE courses finished off. I met my current boyfriend in that class, so we had the same lecture and discussion for two quarters before we chose a different seminar the third quarter. Also, while waiting for food at Carl's Jr., the computer tech that was sent to fix my computer, and a cop who was having dinner at a Korean restaurant (his partner asked for my number for him).

I have a couple semi-weird ones: at the library, at the grocery store, in an elevator, and in the girls' bathroom at a sports bar (long story there...).

I was bored on the bus home from work one night and started bluetooth messaging random people on the bus (weird, but it was fun) and an amazing guy replied. We got talking properly and we're really good friends now, I'd like more but he's in a relationship so I wont go there (and neither will he, I must add)...but I'd still consider it a strange way of meeting an object-of-my-desire!

I haven't really met guys in particularly strange places, but a few weeks ago I was at a theme party, and then afterwards I ended up at a club. At the party, one of my friends had dared me to wear a viking hat and carry this plastic axe. At the club, I met a couple of guys who were like "Is that girl really carrying an axe?" They came over to find out why on earth I had an axe with me, lol!

I once met a guy in line at traffic court. I met another guy on an airplane. Neither lasted more than a few dates, but like nohesitation said, either would have made great "how we met" stories!

I once met a guy when I was trying to buy a newspaper out of one of those dispensers on the street. I was struggling to get it open, and he stopped to help and offer me another quarter -- we chatted a bit and it turned out we had some acquaintances in common, so I gave him my number. The relationship didn't go anyway, unfortunately -- we would have had such a great "how we met" story! In general, though, I have a really tough time meeting guys -- guess I need to be more bold...

I met my bf of 3 years on Myspace, back before there was like 70 gazillion people on there. I was perusing local guys' pages and came across his...I sent him a message totally making fun of him for listing every cd and movie that he owned on his page and somehow that led to us dating...random, but I'm sure glad I sent that message! Oh, and that he wrote back :smile:

In front of my apartment. He was out running with one of my neighbors, and just happen to run by right as I was leaving my apartment. We ran into each other again later that night at the bar, and we dated until he moved.
