in '07, I was walking along in front of the Jazz tent when i noticed the most beautiful girl I have ever seen walking next to us, only a couple feet away. I said "hey, what you walkin' all alone for, come walk with us' so she started walkin with us (me) and I found out her name is Laurie and she is from Tennessee. She's my age, and she is gorgeous. However, she was working there, and had to go back to her employer by the What Stage and serve food. I found out when she got off and waited with a couple of kids I had just met, even though it was during Wilcos terrible, awful set. I saw her walking back and i could feel my excitement rise. I walked over and accompanied her while she got some food and we enjoyed her break together, then she walked off back to work, and I never saw her again. I know we never did anything, and i was not even a bit pissed about missing NMAS, but i honestly think i fell in love with this girl at first sight. My friends couldn't believe me for talking to her, they all agreed she was gorgeous. So Laurie, if you're out there, the total 25 or 30 minutes we spent together at bonnaroo were the most enjoyable 25 - 30 minutes of my life.
Crazy bonnaroo love story.. I have had a friend of mine who has gone to bonnaroo 2007 and 2008 and both years we have meet up both times but really didnt hang out because she and I always came with different groups. Well we ended meeting up at 2008 and really hitting it off.. She went to raconteurs with me and after we went to see MIA.. After that we spent the the rest of the time chillin in my tent till MMJ. At MMJ most of my friends i came with left cause of the rain and wanting to rave at Tiesto so she stayed with me in the rain holding my hand.. We eventually parted ways that night but hung out as soon as we got back to our hometown. We talked for a few weeks and things got rocky and not untill last month did we start talking again and now dating. I really believe I owe it to Bonnaroo and MMJ for bringing me to this wonderful woman that i have fallen in love with.. Cant wait to spend another Bonnaroo with her but this time with her the whole time.
there was a couple who MET at camp inforoo in 2006, and have since married not sure they still poke their heads in around here though... it's a really sweet story
i met them on thursday night, and they were so close that i thought they were a couple who had traveled to bonnaroo together...
as for me, i brought my own love! bonnaroo is a magical place
yup Bob and Mel. I met Mel randomly on the shuttle, she joined us at camp inforoo (Bob was a poster on here) and the rest was history. It happened amazingly fast! She was from Alaska and he was from... hmm somewhere else, and they definitely are married now. I heard from Bob around last roo so I hope they come back eventually! Really roo should have been their honeymoon I think

I met a girl last summer in cancun - im pretty sure I fell hard for her bc I still cant stop thinking of her. Im going to roo this year and she told me she is trying to go. prelude to possible love story
I fell out of love at Bonnaroo. It showed me what a tool the guy I was dating happened to be, and my life has been much better ever since! So thanks to Bonnaroo for that :-)
This kinda happened to me too.....and Im completely ok with that. Im going back to Roo this year with the ex I am no longer dating. Were still good friends and I think it is gonna be a good time. Just hope this doesnt hamper me finding a Roo boy this year lol

These stories are awesome :)
Winter of 2008-2009 I was going through a really bad break-up it got to the point where I would never leave my house except to go to school and work. I stopped talking to all my friends and lost an interest in everything at the time except playing video games. Yeah haha sounds pretty sad but playing live on xbox was the only thing that got my mind off everything. So one day I was playing Social Slayer in Halo 3 waiting for matches and I ended up playing with these really down to earth group of guys, they asked me to join up with them so I did. One of them being this guy named Kasey who had a really cute southern accent :) we got to talking about everything and of course music. I told him how I was going to Bonnaroo for the first time and his response was no way I live literally 15 minutes away from there I go every year! I couldn't believe it I mean how weird is that? I matched up with a guy who lives 15 minutes away from it, so we played for quite awhile and he told me all about roo just making me even more excited, I was actually happy for once because I had something to look forward to. As we got more to talking I found out that he had a girlfriend, all I kept thinking was of course he does, the good guys are always taken. For the next couple of weeks we we would play together on live a couple times a week but then suddenly he stopped playing and wouldn't be on for months... I was crushed he was the only person I really talked to in months because I blocked everyone else out. For the remaining time I just continued to play but I was still bummed about the whole situation. But I wasn't going to let that stop me so I started doing my research on everything one needs to know about Bonnaroo. All I remember is it was finally May which ment about a month until Bonnaroo I was getting super excited and I slowly started being my happy self again. I started talking to my friends again and going out and I can't forget the wings were in the playoffs so I was one happy girl. I'll never forget the day May 29th 2009 I logged onto myspace just to check my stuff and I had a new comment from Kasey! He asked me if I was still coming to his backyard and then told me how he didn't get on live anymore (which I already knew I would check his gamertag almost everyday to see if he'd been on haha) but said he was getting on and asked if I still played. He told me that he wanted to meet up at roo still if I was down and that we should exchange phone numbers. I was ecstatic but at the same time I wasn't really cool with the idea of talking to him on the phone since he had a girlfriend. It turned out though that she had been cheating on him and he found out and broke up with her in April. I couldn't really comprehend that because I thought he was a great guy. I remember the first night he called me we talked on the phone for 3 or 4 hours. Let me just say I'm not a phone person... I have never talked on the phone that long before in my life and it was probably one of the best phone conversations I ever had along with the rest of thes ones we shared leading up to Bonnaroo. When we talked we never had to try to find something to talk about it just flowed with ease one topic after another. Everyday I would wait for him to call and when he would send me little texts here and there I couldn't hide the smile plastered on my face, everyone began to take notice. It was finally time to leave for Bonnaroo, 9 hour drive from Michigan to Tennessee with my two best girlfriends. I was freaking out but in a good way especially over the fact that I was going to meet Kasey face to face for the first time. I remember being at Stuckey's gas station waiting for his car to pull up, oh my god I was so freakin' nervous! Haha. A million thoughts were going through my head and then I saw his car pull into the gas station and I watched him step out of his car I immediately ran towards him and jumped in his arms (probably the best picture I can give you is if you saw the movie Dear John when Savannah jumps into John's arms at the airport and everyone is starting at them like what the hell, yeah that's what happened haha) and we stayed that way for a couple of minutes. I never really believed in love at first sight until I saw Kasey. Bonnaroo 2009 was the best thing that has ever happened to me. I really do believe that what happened to Kasey and I wasn't just a coincidence. I was suppose to meet Kasey, we were suppose to go to Bonnaroo together and fall for eachother. Kasey and I have been dating for 9 months now and I couldn't be happier. It is hard at times because he lives all the way over there and I live here but I wouldn't have it any other way. He's not just my boyfriend but more importantly my best friend. I never had anyone have my back like he has and he loves me for who I am and that's all I ever hope for. I cannot wait to return to the farm this year for our one year anniversary it's going to be a blast.

Ahhh, roomance I always end up meeting someone @ Bonnaroo, but nothing that's lasted for more than a couple weeks. This will be my first time attending with someone that I'm dating. Should be interesting. I told him he will need to stay with me the whole time because I tend to get "friendly" at Roo
