Winston and Julia have noticed each other for a long time.  He watches her and secretly hates her and all she stands for as a loyal Party member during the Two Minutes' Hate.  She watches him and tags him as someone who is not loyal.  Both admit to the other later what he/she thought of each other, which should have made them more careful.

Their first actual encounter came after the Two Minutes' Hate when Julia "runs" into Winston and falls down.  When he helps her up during the seemingly innocent connection, he realizes she has slipped a note into his hand.  When he is able to open it in private, he reads, "I love you".

Later, they plan to meet in a secret place--the wooded area in the park--away from microphones and cameras where they are intimate for the first time.  They continue planning clandestine meetings until they are able to secure an apartment where they escape the Party (or so it seems) to enjoy each other and life as the Proles do.
