How we met: Love on the social network

I told her to look me up on Facebook. Yes — Facebook! I was new to the social networking scene and decided to throw it out there.

Names:?Leisha, 29, and Byron, 36
Hometown: Surrey, B.C.
Together since:?2007


Their story:


“I (Byron) first saw Leisha while I was waiting in line at a Granville (B.C.) nightclub. I noticed an attractive women standing with friends in the bar, but I was with a big group that night and really wasn’t looking to find true love.


“Then a girl approached me and asked me to talk to her friend. I was hesitant at first, but then I realized that the girl’s friend was Leisha — the same attractive woman I’d spotted earlier. I introduced myself, but my words got a little jumbled, so I told her to look me up on Facebook. Yes — Facebook! I was new to the social networking scene and decided to throw it out there.


"A few weeks passed and I hadn’t heard anything from Leisha. I assumed she wasn’t interested. I even remember telling my roommate, ‘I think I lost my future wife.’


"But then one day I received a Facebook message from Leisha. We chatted online for a few more weeks and then decided to meet for lunch. It was the best lunch date ever! The conversations and chemistry were so easy and relaxed. Leisha and I got married earlier this year at the UBC Boathouse in Richmond, B.C.”
