“Cushion Connection”

best of sweet

The first time she came round to mine, and we talked in-depth about relationships. She sat opposite me, hugging a cushion the whole time. Our eyes kept meeting then falling away, nervous of expressing too much. When she left, before I’d even realized, I was sitting where she had sat, hugging the same cushion.

—James

Postscript: I realized then, hopelessly, it was love.

“Unexpected”

best of surprising

After dating for a few weeks, we were fooling around at my house. I wanted to make sure he was having as much fun as I was, so I asked him to say something. He thought for a minute and said, “I love you.” Not what I was expecting, but after I thought a minute myself, I realized I loved him too.

—Nicole

Postscript: He was the first guy I ever dated who said “I love you” first, and we’re still together (and now married) five years later.

“Original Plan”

best of strange

The original plan: Meet up with a nice Jewish boy I met online (J-Date.com), schmooze, booze and breakfast in bed.  Unfortunately, I suspected breakfast wouldn’t be kosher….so I ditched his ass, and met a nice Christian boy instead. He serenaded me with the lyrics, “I know who I want to take me home,” and from then on, I vowed to never J-Date again.

Cud and Clove

Aftermath:  Four weeks later, I’m still waiting for him to take me home…but things are definitely looking good!

“Costanza”

best of surprising

We met at a bar after we had both had a few too many. After she drunkenly smiled at me, I waited way too long to say anything. Once I did, she was on her way out the door.  After meeting up with her at a different bar, she forgot my name.  Drunk and tired, I weaseled my way into her apartment. When I tried to weasel my way into her bed, I was on the street before I knew it.  I pulled a Costanza though, and left my watch at her place.

—Kevin

Aftermath:  We had another date when we weren’t blitzed (to get my watch), and we realized we have more in common than a love of alcohol.  Now we’re to be married in June 2010.

“Bossy”

best of surprising

Over a year’s time, my boss kept asking me for a date. I kept telling him that I would never date anyone who had power over my job. I heard through the grapevine that he had asked for a transfer to another department. When his boss asked him why he wanted to move, he said it was so I would go on a date with him.

—Colleen

Postscript: He transferred, I dated him then married him. Now, I’m his boss.
