One thing I like about the work scenario is the 'how do we carry out our liasons and then cope at work on a day-to-day basis?' questions and 'what will happen if we do...and then we break up? How would we work together?' This can bring a lovely layer to conflict. (note to anyone single- a junior doctor tends to move round specialties a lot- so there's only a short amount of worry time).
According to this website the second most likely place to meet a 'mate' is through friends. Indeed, in a mini survey of my own friends quite a few were set up on blind dates/ dinner parties etc- but they didn't always end up with the person intended to be their match! Personally I've never acted as a matchmaker- well, except on paper, but I'd love to!
The third most popular place to meet a partner is online. As a writer this brings a zillion wonderful thoughts to mind- but it's possibly worthy of only one book.
So I'm now trying to think of novel and fun ways of getting my characters to meet without being cliched or just downright boring - but it gets harder and harder to be original!

To help spread a few more warm fuzzies today, tell me what's the most romantic true get-together story you know? How did you meet your partner? Or have you ever acted as a matchmaker- and how did that work out?
