Did you meet your fiance online?

Recommended Posts

My fiance and I met online which a lot of people think is weird when we tell them. We met online at BlackPlanet.com and chatted for a month before we even talked on the phone and met. Chatting online for a month helped us just ask each other questions and get a lot of things out in the open. We finally met for dinner in July 2006 at Cheddar's and took things slow. We didn't rush anything either and have been going strong ever since. We finally got engaged in August 2008!!!

Meeting online is becoming more popular these days with websites like eharmony and I think it can be a valuable tool for a lot of people. I never went out a lot so meeting online was right up my alley. The internet can work for some as long as things are not rushed!

Tom and I did not ... but one of his close friends and frat brother from college just got married to an AMAZING woman who I now also consider a friend ... and they met on eHarmony.com -- talked about it during the ceremony and reception and actually are ploying to be in an eHarmony commercial. They are so cute, I never believed in that stuff .... but they are a PERFECT couple!!!!


Also, he is Jewish and she converted before he even proposed b/c she knew she wanted to spend her life with him! That's love, baby!

technically, yes.


we are both in mummers string bands (it's a philly thing) and he spotted me out at a party another band was having. he kinda asked around about me and who i was, and managed to get the screen name i used on a mummers online forum. he made a post that i "was hot" and "we should get together" LOL.


i totally thought it was a joke, but responded anyway, and we started to IM each other outside of the forum. we finally met in person about two months later at a different mummers function. he's 9 years younger than me, so i didn't really give him the time of day for awhile.


3 months later, i decided to forget the age difference and give it a chance.


anyway, meeting online can definitely work. sure, lots of guys are just out for one thing, and ladies need to be careful with meetups, but there are definitely a few good ones out there. i know because i got one!

4 years ago now a friend of mine told me to go on findsomeone.com and as I joke I put up my profile and came across my hubby to be. We went to the same school (a few years apart) then we just started talking and clicked really well. After a week of chatting on the net and talking on the phone we feel in love.

Im so happy... I went on that silly site.

I am proud to say that I met my fiance in an AOL chatroom in 1999!! msnwink.gif


After we met online, we chatted every now and then, but he would mostly work my last nerve, lol. Then I changed my screename, and ironically he did too, so we lost contact. But about a month later, fate allowed us to meet up again in another AOL chatroom :) The internet instant messages continued with several heated sports discussions involved, hehe.


And, after spending about 4 months talking online, we finally began talking on the phone and eventually met in person. The day after our first in-person meeting, I left to Cancun for a family vacation. It was my first time in Cancun and while I had a blast, I could not stop thinking about the boy known as WuJuniorX. blush2.gif


When I returned, we met up again and watched the South Park movie together ~ yes so totally unromantic but we could not stop laughing and had the best time. rofl.gif That night, he finally kissed me and I have been kissing those wonderful lips ever since cheesy.gif


Our wedding on June 26, 2009, will mark the 10th year anniversary of our first date in person and to make it even more special, we will be getting married in Akumal, which is just 90 minutes from Cancun. My life has truly come full circle, and I can't imagine my life without my wonderful DH.


Love works in such funny ways, and for the rest of my days I will always be grateful to the AOL chatrooms that brought love my way . . . bride.gif

    • I know this is an older post, but maybe my message will help someone else.
    • While most readers have (hopefully) heard of Geoffrey Chaucer, they are probably not familiar with his exquisite rondels. And I would rank Charles d’Orleans with Chaucer as a master of the medieval form …
    • Had anyone traveled with their wedding dress on JetBlue? If so can you tell me how you did it? I leave 9/23 and I’m still lost on what I’m doing. I bought a vacuum seal bag but I’m iffy about using that. TIA
    • Hello, has anyone recently gotten married at Le kliff? so far our planning experience hasn’t been the best, does anyone have any recent experience with getting married there? 
    • Hi I’m about to book my wedding and wonder if anyone has recently got married at RUI Ocho Rios? Would anyone has the prices for extras please? We are going to book the top package but we need to add extra people as we have 50 guests. we also want to have an after party after the reception - any ideas on the timings for it or prices please? We have emailed the hotel but can’t seem to get any answers until we pay deposit. Which we have just done at Bahia Principe to find out after they won’t allow us to have a reception past 9:30pm even though they said we could at a cost of $300 usd per half hour prior to booking and paying our deposit. We where prepared to pay this even thought it is very expensive plus DJ and bar costs.    we are nervous to book and pay another deposit now incase we are in the situation. We are already paying hundreds of pounds to amend our guests bookings too.    any advice is greatly appreciated please.   thanks  Sam sjpulfer18@hotmail.co.uk
