10 Incredible “How They Met” Stories That Defy All Odds.

The idea of “true love” is one that we all want to believe in. I’ve never bought into the idea that each person only has one perfect match in this world… but these “how they met” stories made me reconsider.


Some of these couples were otherwise engaged, separated by oceans or stuck right in the friend zone, but love found a way despite it all.

Check out these “how they met” stories below and be encouraged if you’re searching… you never know when love will find you!


1. They dated other people.

“She was the Social Secretary for the adult social group at St. Mary’s cathedral in San Francisco. There was a dance coming up and I bought two tickets from her even though I didn’t have a date, hoping that she would be my date. While buying them, I slyly asked her if she would like to go with me since I had an extra ticket. She said yes. Then for a reason I can’t remember, we attended the next dance after that with other people. We spent the whole night extremely jealous while watching each other dance with our respective dates. We were engaged a few months later on Valentine’s Day. We were together through 58 years of marriage, 5 children, 11 grandchildren, and 8 great grandchildren. Even though my sweetheart passed away almost 3 years ago, I still talk to her every day and our love is still very much alive.”
