Your Chance To Win A Great Galentine's Day With Your Girlfriend

Thanks for your interest in our Galentine's Day Contest. The official entry period has concluded. If you’re not yet a subscriber, be sure to sign up for The Girlfriend today so that we can inform you of future contests.

The "meet-cute" is Hollywood jargon for a standard plot device in which a future couple meet in a way that's unusual, amusing or, well, "cute." Think "Notting Hill," when book shop owner Will Thacker (Hugh Grant) spills his orange juice on movie star Anna Scott (Julia Roberts). But meet-cutes aren't just for romantic comedies. Best friends can also come together in a fun destined-to-be-besties-forever sort of way.

With that in mind, The Girlfriend wants to give you and your BFF a great Galentine's Night Out — Galentine's Day is traditionally Feb. 13 — or, rather, the money so that you can afford a great night out.

Just tell us in 350 words or less OR in a video that's no more than three minutes long how you met your best friend. We'll go through each and every response and award three prizes so you can treat yourselves right: $1,000 for the first-place winner, $500 for second place and $250 for third place. The Girlfriend is all about celebrating female friendship, and we can't wait to hear about yours. Submissions are due Dec. 23.
