Where I Met My Love

James Allen's The Love Loupe asked some of our readers where and how they met their significant others. Where did they meet their boyfriends, girlfriends, fiancés and partners? What are the stories behind their diamond engagement rings? Here are some of our favorite stories that customers shared:

I actually first saw my fiancée on the Subway. I was on my way back from work when I spotted a cute girl. I starting flirting with her and exchanged emails. I emailed her a few days later and asked her to dinner. She agreed and the rest is history. We are getting married next summer and yes, I proposed with a James Allen ring! – David M.

My husband and I met in Club Med, Cancun! It was a singles week and decided to join a friend on the trip last minute. As soon as I got off the plane, this good looking guy came up to me and asked me to drinks. I was a bit taken back and told him I had to go to my room first and change. (I was still in the disgusting outfit I wore on the plane!) I met him for drinks later that evening and we hit it off. We spent the rest of the week together, hand in hand. Three months later we were engaged and just a year later, married. Fairytales really do exist! – Anne C.

I met my wife in the library at University. I was studying for an exam in Physics and she sat down next to me. She kept staring at me so I finally turned to her and said, “Can I help you?” She made up some dumb question to ask me. It was clear she just wanted to flirt. She left me her number and I called her later that evening. We met up for coffee and have been best friends since. –Sean H.

I met my husband-to-be through friends. I wish our story was more exciting, but it just isn’t. A close mutual friend suggested we meet so one night we all went out in a group. I wasn’t impressed with him at all at first. He wasn’t that friendly and didn’t seem too interested in anything I had to say. Two weeks later he sent me a message on Facebook asking me out. To this day I have no idea why I agreed. We went out and actually had a great time. From then on we spend almost every night together and are getting married in two months.  – Nicki R.
