I met my current wife online on IRC back in 1995, when it was considered freaky. I was divorcing, she was separated. We met on a local IRC channel, they kicked her off, I msg'd her, and we've been together since. Turns out she lived about 5 minutes from where I used to work at IBM. We went in a public place (had lunch in Las Colinas) and there were no strings attached for her staying (I picked up the bill). That lunch lasted nearly 3 hours!!!! :O :O :O
Meeting local is probably the easiest way to do it. Just be yourself and don't pretend to be something you are not in R/L. When you DO meet, it will be easy to see if somebody was BS'in.
Same here. We met on IRC back in 97, got married in 98, everything
is still good.
Oh, and we got married by the local rock station down in South Florida
(ZETA) by a DJ that became an ordained minister, on top of a covered
swimming pool, along with 30 some other couples. (was cheap and fun) LOL
When we do right, no one remembers. When we do wrong, no one forgets.
IRC, wow, haven't used that in a LONG time, know a few couples who hooked up because of IRC romances, but only one of them is still together, glad to hear at least some other people are having better luck.
I met my gf on Yahoo Personals 3.5 years ago, moved in together 1.5 years ago, seems to be working out nicely
.... you DO have to be careful out there though, there are some real nutjobs, and be very careful of pictures from "a few years back", there's probably a reason there aren't any recent ones
Due to lack of interest, tomorrow has been canceled
After all, we didn't meet in person.
She used to live in San Antonio, I planned to make the trip many times but I just couldn't get myself to go. One day she told me she was going to move back to California, I didn't hear from her anymore
I met my GF online via yahoo about three years ago. Our first date after the initial meet was a trip to Memphis to go to the zoo there, it was for my birthday. Funny part is, we also went to the civil rights museum (I'm white, she's black) on our first date.
I have met plenty of women through dating sites. Presently, I am seriously involved with a girl i met through one of these sites. It can be done for sure. You just have to put in a lot of effort to find someone worthwhile.
My best friend is a guy who met a woman through IRC over 10 years ago. They are still living together even today.
