  1. Ed and I met at a LAN party where we talked all night and something clicked. It’s a damn good thing we met in person first, because our first online conversation after meeting was horrific – in the first half hour of our chat, he whined repeatedly about being horny, the chicks he was cybering, being needy and demanding if I didn’t answer his questions right away, and generally talking all in caps with too many exclamation points. For some reason, I kept talking to him – even after he asked “WOULD YOU EVER HAVE SEX WITH THREE GUYS AT ONCE??????”. I kept the logs. I’m not allowed to share them under penalty of death.

  2. I met one girlfriend at a music festival in a town a few hours away. It was her home town, so she took me and my friends around for a drive on the last day before we left (two days after we met). She was driving around a corner that transitioned from pavement to gravel, and was going a little too fast – after a bit of skidding, we ended up nose down in a pretty deep ditch. She was pretty mortified as she called the tow truck, but we still went out for a few months.

  3. On our first date, Will and I went out for sushi and he didn’t let me finish a single sentence, which is a major pet peeve. If I hadn’t known him already I would have ended it there. I think he might have been excited and nervous, because he hasn’t done that since. Obviously I’m glad I gave him a second chance.

  4. I have no answer for this, but only because I’ve started seeing someone who makes me so ridiculously happy it hurts. And if you think you’ve got ridiculously high standards… hell, for *years* I’ve been decidedly happy being single, unless someone really spectacular came along.

    someone spectacular has come along. I’m shocked. Everything has been near-perfect sofar. Even my parents like him. I’m waiting for the other shoe to drop.
