Friends In Random Places

"How did you meet?"

When you ask this question of friends who seem to know each other well, you probably expect to hear that they went to school together or used to work for the same company. Maybe their parents put them in touch. But every once in a while, you hear a more surprising story, one of a chance encounter that led to another meeting and then another and ultimately a friendship. The friends featured below are proof that not every bond has a conventional backstory. Sometimes you find your best friends in the most random places –- even the bathroom of a bar.

Do you have a friend you met in a completely unexpected way? Sitting next to each other an airplane? Fighting over a cab? Trying on clothes at your favorite store? Send a photo and a few lines about how you met to women@huffingtonpost.com.
