Love is a Gamble

According to the New York Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) advertisement here, one has a 2 to 1 odds of running into six tall, dark, handsome men on the subway. I don't know if that is a good thing or not. If you were a single girl (or a single gay man), I guess the subway is as good a place to meet men as any other place.

So where and how did you first meet your current spouse/girlfriend/boyfriend/partner? Was it love at first sight?

This is excellent! Hysterical. Love it. Where did you find that?
I guess I'd better stop reading in the subway. All those handsome men and I have my nose in the paper! Geez...

Ming, I don't have a current anything, but I met my dearly departed husband LeRoy at a Kansas City, Missouri, storefront amateur theater known as the Foolkiller. We both showed up to audition for the same play, "Transenmental Hippiedations." That was July 31, 1972. And it wasn't merely love at first sight--it was a high-voltage lightning strike! We got married on Dec. 31, 1972. Love the photo!

je sais pas si le métro est un endroit bien adapté pour rencontrer son âme soeur. Personnellement j'ai rencontré mon Ex tout simplement au collège.
Bon Weekend et bonne rencontre dans le métro

I do not know if the subway is a place well suited to meet his soul mate. Personally I met my Ex simply to college.
Enjoy the weekend and positive meeting in the subway

Hi Ming, Yes, I am back from sunny Florida, and you are right, it's darn cold here, take me back to the beach and the palm trees any time!!
Thanks for sticking with my blog while I was without regular internet access, it was very frustrating but all should be well now that I am back in civilization.

Where did I meet my current partner? Well, he was a colleague of my late husband... I had known him for a long time.... then lost track of him for ages... then he wrote a book and I showed up at the book signing.

Mor pic from Florida in the next couple of days.
BTW I hope you had a great US Thanksgiving with your family.

Like this advertising idea a lot. I met my other half 6 years ago and involved my drunken arm hitting her in her nose!

Eliane, the ad is at Times Square close to the beginning of the underground connection towards Port Authority.

Keropokman, I'm still single. I guess I have to hang out on the subway train looking cute more often.

Fenix, Eliane and I are starting a new comedy show in NYC soon. You should come watch us. :-)

I met my significant other online....BUT I did meet my first boyfriend in the subway. He was a student at Brooklyn Tech HS and I was a student at Art and Design. We met while waiting for a train on the Queens Plaza platform. Though, he wasn't tall, dark or handsome ;-)

I met my Fiance in a community orchestra. He says it was love at first sight for him, but it was not for me. I'd just gone through a difficult breakup and was flattered when he asked me out, but declined. Twice!! He didn't give up.

Hahahahahaha.......I must tell my single girlfriends to travel ONLY via the subway when they visit NY! :oP

N and I met on the dance floor of a dodgy nightclub 9 1/2 years ago...don't think it was "love" at first sight, but it was certainly interest and I was impressed by his dance moves - hahahahaha!

uh, I guess you must be referring to my imaginary boyfriend...I met him in my daydreams...
