How did you meet? July 22, 2004 11:30 PM

We met through Yahoo! Chat. Cliche, yes. Neither of us was actually "looking" at that moment, however. After chatting in IM's... a LOT... for several days, we started to realize that we had a lot in common. "Same Page" stuff. There have been many times when we'd both type the same concept to each other at the same time... and no, not always on the same subject we had already been talking about, either. "Same Page"... same word on the page, it seems. Once we realized that, I suppose it was inevitable. We're a long way off, for now, but we're working on getting together to meet, and eventually to build a life together. She is my Peace, my happiness, my Contentment.  [ send green star]
 
Me too...the Internet. August 15, 2004 5:55 PM

....I am then am also being led to have suched deep loving feelings...I am not in a good writing mood just now ( I care for disabled parents ...just tired) I am/could be in love with a man in NY, I am in TX. We have been talking alot ~ there are seeming red flags, that honestly I don't want to perspective... yep that is a denial ... he never is in touch on the weekends...thats is a crucial ... I love the depth of his knowledge, I surely have my own ... wow just surfing around found this group. Thank You, yep I will probably be back ...we all know it is hard to keep up with the biggest part of replying to our own groups - I commend the ones who do...loney yet pensive in Texas - NOT BORED!!!  [ send green star]  [ accepted]
 
Internet Dating Update.... August 23, 2004 7:24 AM

....the red flags prevailed. They usually do. Love is a feeling made up of wonderful molecules ... I enjoyed these feelings, I can reflect then still keep the knowledge of not the red flags ~ the precious little knowledge I did receive, it's part of the journey ~ ya can't have a single journey without feeling! But there is always knowledge whether you see it or feel it or hear it... I am a romantic ... were it to be my fate to live life without a mate I would have to do so with grace.  [ send green star]  [ accepted]

Sort of the Internet January 16, 2005 6:47 PM

I play an online game called Furcadia. It's played on special im chanels, with pictures to show the room around you. I made my own room, and a freind invited my future girlfreind to hang with us. She gave me a pretend kiss just before I logged of, and I thought about her all night. Long story short, I asked her out the next day, and we've been in love ever since.  [ send green star]  [ accepted]

anonymous Not really looking, but.... July 05, 2005 3:49 PM

I was browsing around online, and met let's call him Jason. Problem is I am married, he knew that and we just chatted about normal things then one thing led to another and we exchanged #s. I was feeling really guilty so I quit contacting him and tried to make my marriage work. He calls me one day and says I'm in town and would love to see you no strings attached. I agreed to meet in a public place and that was when the %#&!*% hit the fan. How can I love someone I've never met except via computer and still have some little feelings for my husband. Jason and I still have contact and tell each other we love one another, he wants to marry me and take care of my newborn son. Oh what Drama!  [report anonymous abuse]  [ accepted]

I met my European love on the Internet. I have never known a man as sensitive, loving, and open as this one. It's too expensive for me to buy a ticket to visit him until October, but he's thinking of coming "out here" to visit me this summer! He and I write each other love letters all the time. It's a beautiful and pure relationship, filled with positive energy. How did I get so lucky? What did I do to deserve such a loving man? I don't know where all this will lead. I'm just letting myself float along with the current, merrily down the stream. I haven't felt this good about a relationship in a very long time. It's like being a teenage girl again. Love is truly a magical gift in life. p  [ send green star]  [ accepted]

Hi there. Just joined the group. I just started a long-distance relationship with a guy I met three years ago. He's in Winnipeg, I'm in Toronto. Not oceans apart, but still feels far. This will make you laugh. We actually met through Lavalife. He was doing a placement in the same town I was living in, and we went blading and had drinks afterwards. A few days later he moved back to Toronto and shortly after got the job in Winnipeg. We've kept in touch since then, and when he came to Toronto (where I live now) we met up for drinks. Then the sparks began... :) Before we met up for drinks, I asked him if he'd come to a friend's wedding with me in Thunder Bay. Before we went our separate ways after drinks he said he'd come to the wedding with me. The wedding was last weekend, and we were both amazed at how comfortable everything felt. We've decided to give this a serious try, even though there's a certain level of skepticism on his side (he tried a LDR in university and it didn't work, but he knows he's in a different place in his life now) - we both agree that it would be stupid not to see where this could lead. So that's where I'm at. :) Still a new relationship, but am excited and happy and scared all at the same time. I'll be looking forward to reading other people's experiences and seeing where things go with this relationship. :)  [ send green star]  [ accepted]
 
Well... November 13, 2005 7:34 PM

I accidentally emailed him while trying to email a friend... their emails were one letter different. Strange.. thinking back on it, I'm always suprised that he actually answered me, instead of just deleting it. So my absent mindedness brought me the love of my life. Unfortunately I was with someone else at the time, wasn't exactly working out though... and once again, my absent mindedness takes over, and instead of sending an email meant for my then current boyfriend, it went to him... so I uh, accidentally told him I loved him before I actually realized it. How can you take something like that back? It was sooo very hard.. but I was at a place where honesty meant so much to me, still does, so I told him the truth. Luckily I fell in love with him anyway. He means so much to me... the way things seem to happen between us, eventually made me feel like it was destiny! :)  [ send green star]  [ accepted]

I came to Mexico (Cuernavaca) to learn Spanish. It was nearly time to return to the United States and work. I was at a local "cafeteria" with some friends (we hung out there nearly every night, drinking beer), when I saw two good-looking women. i went over to talk to them, and soon I had a date with one. One thing led to another. I returned to the U.S., but we kept in touch. We visited each other, and the phone company stock split because they were raking in so much money from our phone calls. Tere and I met in 1982--we got married in '85--and will celebrate 21 years of marriage in January.  [ send green star]  [ accepted]
 
One boring night.. January 28, 2006 6:28 PM

I just took my laptop and connected to a Yahoo chatroom on literature while I was watching TV. When I checked the screen again, a window popped up and the love of my life was IMing me. He put his webcam on and I saw the sweetest smile ever. Soooo cute. We chatted for a whole week for about 4 to 5 hours daily. Now we talk on the phone whenever I have the time to call him up. I looooooooooooove his voice. We've also started writing letters and sending pics or cards. We will be meeting each other at last this coming August. Can't wait. Everything is going great and I hope it lasts forever.  [ send green star]  [ accepted]

Long distance hurts!! August 02, 2006 7:43 AM

I was browsing in this website but he had been in there far longer than me. He paged me and I was hesitant at first to answer his page seeing that he was much younger than me. I just got out of a relationship and was looking for someone to talk to that's when he showed up unexpectedly and what perfect timing, now that I think about it. We became friends but gradually our feelings started to develop for each other, although I was still apprehensive of taking our friendship to the next level. I flew a few thousand miles to meet him for the very first time and we hit it off just like that! I've not looked back since and our love for each other is still going on strong, if not, stronger than we both could ever imagine despite the distance...sigh...We spend quality time with each other every 3 months, and we have plans to settle down when the time is right. He is the love of my life!!  [ send green star]  [ accepted]
 
we met... March 01, 2007 4:44 AM

he wrote the best email to me any guy had written, on plenty of fish. not long after we talked about our feelings, our desires to meet in person and our options, and i met him three months later. it has been and is heaven. we want to drown in an ocean of love together.  [ send green star]  [ accepted]
 
We were friends March 01, 2007 5:51 AM

I was married, living in America although we weren't American and didn't have green cards, and he was a friend of the family, when my ex divorced me and married an American to become legal, our friends stood by and helped me, he was one of these friends. I and my children had to leave America in '97 due to a new immigration law that came in, after we had left, my friend said he missed me and wanted to marry me. However I had family committments and could not come back to America to live. We were apart for a few years before I managed to go and visit him again, my committments continued and now I have to take care of my mother who has Alzheimers, and so we are still waiting. He is a great guy, and I miss him like crazy. We did buy a home together for when I manage to go back, but now immigration laws mess us up as he is retired and doesn't earn enough to sponsor me anyway. I don't know what we will do in the future. They really need a 'retirees' law for people like us who want to get married, I know we can't be the only ones in this situation. We did join together in his cultural way years ago but that isn't recognised by either government, so when I visit I go for 3 months and then have to come back for at least a month. That month has become longer as fares become more expensive. My family is here in England and so it is good to be with them, but hard to be apart from him. The photo on my profile is of us last year when he came over here to visit me for a month.  [ send green star]  [ accepted]
 
Exchange Students! May 08, 2007 10:34 PM

Me and this pretty boy met 2 years ago while we were studying a year abroad in the states. We saw for the first time at church,where our host families always took us to thank God we've had the opportunity to study in another country, so it was pretty sweet. We were friends during this time, but we both knew it had been love at first sight. Nothing happened, and still we share this wonderful and mysterious love! Love ya and miss you Dri  [ send green star]  [ accepted]

Friend introduced October 16, 2007 10:44 AM

I got to know my girlfriend, Fiona, in May 2007. I was talking with a friend and asked if she knew any lesbian/bisexual girls who'd be interested in cyber-sex. She gave me Fiona's e-mail address, describing what she was like. I added her to my IM contacts and that's how it started. She definitely swept me right off my feet in our first conversation. Apparently, I did the same to her. So, we got together on May 23rd after knowing and being madly in love for two weeks. We're still waiting to meet each other in person (probably sometime next winter/spring). I'm hoping she'll propose to me then - we agreed that she'd be the one to do it. =^.^=  [ send green star]  [ accepted]
 
Internet: Upoc October 18, 2007 7:45 AM

Oh, my! I haven't talked about this since they day we met. He's this awsome Christian guy, it was almost like a miricle. When I was 12 I was a big flirt and I was always going over to friends houses just to chat with guys. Then when I was 16 I ended up buying myself this virgin mobile cell phone that you need to be at least 13 to get. I ended up getting it and hiding it for almost a year, then I started chatting on there and I met all these wacko guys...and then i came across his sn and we would txt back and forth but I kinda ran out of txting money so we called each other...alot I'd go to bed early just so I could talk to him. It was amazing, then I ended up having these dreams about this guy (not the one I was txting) and I didn't know who he was. I week later he came to Wisconsin and we met, it was so romantic, he was the first one to say I love you...on the first day we talked, we went down to the lake and went swimming, then he bought me a ring, and now we're getting married in July of next year. Most likely it'll be on our 2year anniversary...then came the crappy part...ready? My mother was looking for me and a friend gave her my cell number everything was out she chased after him with a lead pipe...and I haven't seen him since, but he made a promise that on my 18th birthday that he would return to me.  [ send green star]  [ accepted]
 
we met on the internet January 06, 2008 7:05 AM

We met on the internet l guess 2003....l even dont remember, have e mails but not worth to check.On icq, l was surfing a Christian site and then l saw his profile and l was looking for a real Christian man. We talked for a while and l really fell in love, he was so sweet, he used to speak the Word, eventhough l didnt realize how in hurry was him to meet me. he came to Argentina,we met and he was just what a lwanted a christian matured man, looked honest and serious. You know, l was sure he was not going to cheat on me. He had no money, paying a mortage since 3 month ago and a job. I have a house and an apartment for the children to study they are at College. The dolar rate with pesos was and is too good for american pelople so he deicded to marry me here in Argentina and to move here. First 6 moths and l noticed he was not the one he showed to be.He was an internet addict. Things started not to go so well so he kept tripping to the US every 4 months and stayed there for more ... He liked to buy things he wanted, example hebought a somnier he didnt like my bed lol, a fridge he didnt like my fridge , he used to spend a lot of money in lomo the meat he liked and when he run out of money l would support the rest of things. He helped paying of bills, thanks the Lord because when he was here gas and electricity raised a lot! l used to work as an english teacher and he helped me specially with girl groups. One day in one of his trips he sent me to sleep downstairs and l could find him doing pornography on the internet. After this all our relationship went down.He said l didnt want intimacy lol and l thought he didnt like it because he had troubles. So in brief he abandomned us. Last time he came here to pick up his belongins was a year ago and he stayed for 30 minutes. Before all of this he could shoot his goals to meet business people from here he could do it cause my cousin invited him to a tourism international exposition, and from then an on he could do a good network regarding business people, always his goals have been doing business here and selling land from Argentina to american people. L have been used The end...l have been asking over and over again for him to come and file de divorse he never came. So its costing me a fortunein lawyers that are investigating him and trying to contact him to make him come and file de divorse. And the worst he has had problems with Justice in the Us. i will post his name here becuase many of you know him and may help me to convince him to come next march when Court stats wrking again, to file the divorse. His name is Thomas Dale Woodson. Thank you  [ send green star]  [ accepted]
