In honor of Valentine’s Day, we reached out to the attendee community and asked them to share stories about how AX brought them together with their significant others.
Check out some of our favorite stories below:
Will never forget how you dudes helped me in 2015 to put together a surprise proposal she was never expecting, with a Pokemon skit that had a “secret ending”…
Not only did it work, it lasted – we’re now Husband and Wife as of December 2017. You all helped make it possible! <3 pic.twitter.com/X7P6FoHbil

I met @KisukaKiza while we both worked for Anime Expo, we’re getting married this year! Our mutual love of anime and the anime industry brought us together!

We’ve gone to anime expo every year for the last 3 years. It’s become a ritual, and we love it! 🤩 pic.twitter.com/eMuNRuEpeE

It was my SO’s first AX and at the time we were in the “crush” stage. I had the courage to hold her hand in the Exhibit Hall randomly and I told her “It’s so dark in here, I don’t want you to get lost!” and I held her hand. I was just being cheesy and tried to make an excuse xD

AX 2017 was the first time I met my girlfriend after we started dating in a long-distance relationship. One of my favorite moments by far.
