We’ve been together 4.5 years now and married for six months.” —Sarah, 37

“My boyfriend works with my mom and for three years, she would tell each of us stories about the other in an attempt to set us up. He’s five years older than me though, so I never thought he’d go for me, plus we were living in different states. After a blind date this summer, I was walking back to my car, and he literally ran into me on the street. It was total serendipity. We’ve been dating for about five months now, so thanks, Mom!” —Kelly, 21
