have you ever met a lover/life partner through internet?

I am starting to meet people on some websites, and I am realizing how much of a resource the web is as far as meeting people on a wider scale.

Anyone have luck with this process, would love to hear your story!

My roommate just bought a house with a guy she met on Match.com. In two weeks they'll be celebrating their 1 year anniversary. I can't give you details since it's not my story, but it's worked out for them.

My sister is going to marry the guy she met online this fall. I also know two other people who are married to people they met online. Just be safe.

I met my significant other online over five years ago. We are very close and bonded well, even from across the country originally. It's just another way to meet people that you connect well with and weed out the not so great up front.

Have fun, be safe and enjoy the experiences!

I just celebrated my 1 year anniversary with a guy I met on an online dating site! I know a lot of people who met onilne. I highly reccomend it. I actually had a great time with it. You meet a lot more people than you would any other way and it also gives you a chance to get to know aspects of a person's personality you might not get to know right away when you meet somebody in a more traditional way. I thought it was great. There are creeps out there, but just like in dating in real life, you have to be smart and use your best judgement.

I think as long as the web is not your only social outlet it is a wonderful tool for meeting those with similar interests who you might not normally run into (or have a chance to befriend) IRL. It gives you a chance to correspond with someone and then decide wether or not you'd like to meet. I think any negative connotations come in from those who abuse this tool and use it to prey on others. I know several people who met their SO's online and, as of now, they are all still going strong. i didn't meet my husband there but I met almost my entire circle of friends there (with whom I am quite close) and we use Yahoo Groups to keep up with each other's day-to-day lives in between get-togethers. Thus, not only did we meet online, but we still socialize there. To me the trick is to make certain you connect most often in the material world, not the online one.

My hubby and I have been married for 7 years now. We met almost 10 years ago online but did not have an agenda to meet people to date or marry. I was looking for a computer network mentor as I put in a complex new computer lab. We talked professionally and then personally for 6 months before ever meeting each other in real life.

The big drawback to meeting people online is that we tend to fill in all the gaps with our own made-up perfection. Like, you have no idea if that other person is a perpetual nose-picker or is rude to wait staff. Those little but important things are only discovered when you spend actual space and time with a person.

I met my husband online two years ago. We've been married a year and a half now and couldn't be happier. We make people sick (really, LOL). Good luck to you.

i met my wife online 2 yrs ago. best decision i made in my life. she was in Los Angeles to Chicago. She dropped everything and moved her with me. She makes half as much as she did there and is without her family and is trying to find right people to click with socially. All in all we are very much in love.

I have had some nice realtionships with people I met on line, but none that have succeeded ... BUT I am not giving up because I know three couples who met on-line and married over the past three years - they are the happiest couples I know!

I met my boyfriend on LavaLife 3 years ago. This summer, I went to the weddings of two other LavaLife hook-up couples.
It's a totally viable option when you've exprired all your other options (friends' friends, the people in your neighbourhood etc). As long as you're not meeting in a dark alley on your first date, go for it!
