Me! I had NEVER been on a date before meeting my FH.  And he’d only been on dates with two girls from the same site and it hadn’t progressed past a second meeting.  Yep, both 25 and had never been in a relationship before, at all! And I  know it sounds ridiculous but after talking for four hours straight on our first date and wishing it didn’t have to end and having our first kiss (ever) as we held each other on the train platform not wantong to go our separate ways, I had this strange & amazing feeling that this was the man I was going to marry.  We were steady from then on, went on our first weekend trip less than 6 weeks later, practically inseparable after that and I moved in after nine months.  10 days shy of our first anniversary, he asked me to be his wife! I still feel a little bit of disbelief that I never had to go through the whole dating and heartbreak cycle even once before meeting my future husband.  


Oh, oh, and when did I find FH online?  MY FIRST DAY.  If that’s not a success story, I don’t know what is! Lol. We often say that it took bravery on my part and perseverance on his, as he’d been trying for 6 months and he was about to give up.

We did. In a honestly I wasn’t looking for a relationship – I was looking for someone to have some uncomplicated sex with! I ended up with someone that I love passionately, but we do have a complicated relationship sometimes.

I met my FI online 🙂 On Plenty of Fish.

I had been on the site for months. Only went on one other date with a creep and was about to give up.


Funny story though, I found his profile months before we met. I messaged him and got this weird “the one” vibe and saved him to my favorites. We talked, but it fizzled out and I was bummed. A few months later, I had a new profile without pictures on it. He messaged ME not knowing it was me until we talked a bit and he asked for pictures. We met. Inseperable since!


I guess when our first go-around fizzled, he started dating a girl for a month but it didn’t work out, so he returned to the site.


I’m convinced it was meant to be because of that!

I met FI online at Christian Mingle. I was a little skeptical at first about signing up because I wanted someone who shared my beliefs but I’m also pretty liberal and those things don’t always go together, thankfully though FI and were a match. 🙂

We met on OK Cupid! DH had been on there a while and dated a couple other girls, I have gone on exactly one online date ever. With him. We went out on a Saturday, went out the following Saturday, hung out the day after and he met the furbabies and saw my apartment, and that was it. We were officially living together a couple months later, and engaged a little over a year after we met. We’d been together just about two years when we got married. I swear by the ok cupid match percentage thing–we were a 96% match. Oh, and my sister’s MOH speech was hysterical and basically just quoted from our first email conversations. It was hysterical.

Kinda…IDK if it counts or not? 

I worked with my FI, our offices were right next to each other. We  never spoke. Just the occasional Hi.  I quit my job to stay at home with my kids and persue my photography businss full time. I ended up finding him on FB 6 months later and we started talking.

@iloverocks:  My FI and I met on OkCupid as well! We went out for the first time on a Thursday,  went out the next night (Friday), and spent 10 hours at a coffee shop on Saturday. The following month I moved in. Fast forward three years, we are engaged and things are going great!

I basically got to hand pick my FI through dating online. I recommend it to everyone!
