Met my ex-wife online and, except for my wonderful daughter whom I have custody of, it was the worst mistake I ever made in my entire life.

@cynthisa, such a fruitful and happy experience! Guess one reason I've yet to check any of these sites out, besides skepticism, is my comfort-zone with myself. I don't feel incomplete (Yet!). I always appreciate hearing these stories, though, so thank you for sharing! Happy New Year to you both!

I agree! I'd only met 1 person (match.com) I was willing to meet in-person and that 1 date -no chemistry! But...about a year later I went on Jdate (Jewish singles--sorry, Gentiles) and the 1st person I ended up meeting in-the-flesh is now my husband of 5 years. So you never know...good luck to you!

Why, yes! And, now I'm married to him! (The second person I met online, but first that made it beyond a single date.)

I met my husband three and a half years ago as just a hook up on a casual Craigslist post. Now we own our first home together, have a baby, and are very much in love.

She added me on Facebook because she thought I was someone else. I messaged her and asked how we knew each other, and before I knew it we were in love. Wasn't planned, but I happened. She's quite the c word now though.

Back when I was single, I hooked up with a few loose gals over AIM. Yikes - I was young & dumb, or at least led around by my libido.

I met my wife online in 1993. The Internet was a much smaller place back then.

Yup - met my husband online in Jan 1996. We lived within 40 miles of one another, so it was real pretty quickly.

Yup! "Met" in 2000 and dated on and off (in person) for several years and got married in 2008. It's been the best 12 years of my life.

Also met my wife on Match.com Going on two years with a baby on the way. Mutch better way of finding people with common interests if you have jobs that limit your free time.

Billyjoebob, what are you doing on SoH? God didn't mean for us to communicate with smart phones. It is unnatural! Cast away your evil electronic gismo!

One of our friends is an American French couple like yourselves. They are such nice people. They get to take nice vacations visiting family and sights in France every now and then.

I really don't like smoking, drinking, or dancing, but I do like geeks and nerds, so I went where the nerds are: the Internet! And my efforts were quite successful. ^.^

In my opinion meeting someone in a bar is just as risky as online. Sometimes it is even riskier.

Met my boyfriend on OkCupid.com!! We celebrated 3 years last month and we've been living together for about half of that time. I've met so many scum bags that it was soooo much better to get to know someone online first.

Nah. You can't really size up the physique online. I mean personality is great and all, but I like to know that the hardware matches the software if you know what I mean.

Kinda similar to the story of the man who drowned because he told everyone who came to rescue him No thanks, God's going to save me. In heaven he complained to God. God said, But I sent you a man in a canoe, someone in a powerboat, etc... What more did you want?

It could have gone either way. But I don't speak French very well and it would have been tough getting a job. Luckily he was able to continue his job moving over here and works from home. Things just fell into place . . . Though I'd still love to live in France some day.
