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.

Julia and Winston meet at the Ministry of Truth where they both work. Winston recognizes Julia as the dark haired girl whom he thinks is spying on him and works in the Fiction department. They keep seeing each other and occasionally exchange glances but never speak until one day when they meet along the corridor and the dark haired girl stumbled and fell. Winston helped her up and they parted ways after she slipped him a note reading “I love you” in his hand. They manage to whisper to each other at the canteen during lunch and agree to meet at Victory Square where they arrange their first meeting away from the crowd in the woods. It was during this meeting that the dark haired girl formally introduced herself as Julia. She already knew Winston’s name. After this, they continued to meet in different places but for less than thirty minutes each time, they took precaution. Eventually, they used the room on top of Mr. Charrington’s junk shop until their arrest.
