    FI and I met online, but not through a dating site or social networking. We met on YouTube while making weight loss videos! it was very neat to get to know someone by watching their videos and not just looking at pictures.

      Yes, we met on blacksingles.com. Funny thing is I saw that he was from Birmingham and I was a little concerned about him being from the deep south. However, he's from Birmingham UK! ROFL. That didn't stop us. We IM'ed each other all day and later that night he called me. I've been with him ever since. He proposed on 09-09-09 my 30th bday! It was awesome. So we've been together for 1 1/2 years now. Moral of the story... online relationships can work and so do long distance (even international ones) can work if both couples want it!

        krishna69z, I love your quote about Craigslist too! That's how I met my fiance as well. I had posted an ad without a height requirement and he replied saying he appreciated that men did not need to be of a certain height in order to talk to me. We chatted online for a few days before meeting up to play mini-golf. For some reason I did not leave my pocketbook in the car while playing so he ended up holding it for me while it was my turn to putt :) We ended up chatting until late into the night. That date turned into another date, and into another one and the rest is history.

        He proposed to me this past February while we were on a cruise to the Carribean for a friend's wedding. I never expected it to happen while we were on the cruise. It's been so much fun planning the wedding with him. We are getting married in Belize on 4/13/10. I can't wait!

          I think times are changing. Gone are the days where you can meet someone through just friends, through family, etc. We are living in a very fast paced world with technology all around us.
          I too met Riley on a dating site - lavalife.com and I thank my lucky stars everyday that we did. We too spoke for over a month via MSN and slowly progressed to the phone. We didnt actually meet until we were both ready to. We had our first date at a pub in Calgary, which he swears was not our first date, but more of a meet and greet. Ugh! Men! lol To me that was our first date. Anyways, I also get the looks every now and again from people that think online dating is crazy, but those are the people that havent been in our situation. Those people are probably already married themselves. Or they are scared to use it themselves. I think so long as you are safe about it you cant go wrong. Yes you are going to find some people that are "very" questionable to say the least...lol....but there are some really great people on there if you take the time to get to know them.
          I tell everyone about online dating and am no longer saying that "we met through a freind" to avoid those weird looks and judgement. I am happy that we met that way and wouldnt change a thing.
          Congrats to all my fellow online bride and grooms to be......way to go!

            My fiance and I met online through lavalife. When he first contacted me, I had written him back saying it'd be a few days before I could chat with him as I had a friend from out of town spending the week-end with me, but later that same day her and I got into a car accident (nothing too serious, but enough to stop our plans for the week-end), so I ended up spending the night at home alone. I sent him a new message and he was online, so we started chatting. We only chatted for about a week before we met, and about two months later we decided to "get serious". That was just over a year ago. :)

              My FI Steve and I met through Yahoo Personals. I checked my account after about three months away from the site and saw a message he sent over two months before. I responded anyway because he seemed like a nice guy and luckily he was still available!

              We emailed for about two weeks before we went on our first date and 14 months later we were engaged.

                FH and I met through lavalife as well. He sent me a smile and while I thought he looked like a nice guy he didn't seem like my type. We sent a few emails back and forth and since he wasn't a creep like most lavalife guys I met we decided to meet for drinks. We hit it off (he is just like my dad. Don't they say you marry someone like your dad?)and he asked me if I'd like to get together the next day so I said sure. We met at a park and went for a walk where he kissed me for the first time. Then he goes and asks me to go shopping with him because it's his dads birthday and he needed to get him a gift. Who does that on the 2nd date? LOL.....When I told my mom/friends they were like "ohhhhh that's boyfriend/girlfriend stuff" and I just laughed at them. The next week it was my birthday and I thought to myself "ok we've been dating for a week so let's see if he does anything. If he brings me flowers then I know he's a keeper". Guess who showed up with a dozen pink roses? That won me over and even though I didn't want a boyfriend I couldn't let this one get away. After a year together we bought a place and we've been happy ever since. We are total samesies and I wouldn't have it any other way!
                Two lives, two hearts joined together in friendship united forever in love

                  Yes!!!!! We actually met in an online game(which i will not reveal because i am to embarrassed to accept I played )!!!! LoL!!! We met about 4 years ago in the time where i was trying to hide from men and life per say ( i did a great job huh! lol!). At first all we did was goof off and well honestly just fight like no tomorrow about the damn game(he was an online jerk! lol). After a year of playing together we started talking seriously about things and getting to know each other a bit more. A year later he hinted around us meeting in person etc. He had trip planned to DR with his friends and had invited me to go. As you ladies may understand i was hesitant and completely bowed out of that trip. He then proposed a trip down to PR so we could meet. I felt sorta nervous because even though we had talked for a year, lets face it, he could still turn out to be some kinda "psycho!" lmao!... Anyhow i remember being super nervous as i drove to the airport to pick him up and when I saw him(I crap you not!! I knew he was the one!) it was love at first "meet" if there is such a thing! He spent a week in PR. It was great, so great it was almost perfect. We had an awesome weekend in Culebras island(super romantic dinners in front of the bay and gorgeous crystal clear beaches)! A month later we just decided to give this long distance relationship a shot! 2 years and tons of frequent flier miles later we are still going strong!

                    I met my FI in Grade 12 English class. We sat together and he used to copy off me because I am a much more diligent student! I actually asked him to prom that same year but he said no and I wasn't all that heart broken. I dated someone else for over 5 years but we broke up. Around the same as the break up I needed someone to design a website for my work. Low and behold my friend ran into future FI on a train and told me he designed websites! I contacted him and we started chatting every day on MSN. Our first date wasn't for a couple of months, and it actually took place in San Francisco!

                      Yep, I met my honey online. I tried a Christian website and had little success finding anything worth the energy. Then I got an email from yahoo personals. I hesitated to get on there, but I gave in and it changed my life.
                      I kept passing my FI profile by. But, funny thing...I kept coming back to him. I finally worked up enough courage to say something to him. He responded and we haven't seperated since.
                      We both knew, right away, that we were meant for eachother. My life since then has been one heck of a ride. He proposed in a hot air balloon and we are getting married in Jamaica! I'm so in love it's crazy!!
