I am curious to see how many bees met their fiances/husbands/boyfriends online. I did! Neither of us were looking for a serious relationship and thought it might be nice to get out on a Saturday night every now and then, and meet some new people. We lived 1.5 hours apart at the time but he was driving through my area regularly for work at the time. Almost 5 years later and we are heading down the aisle!

i met my wonderful bf online as well : ] like you, i totally wasn’t looking for/expecting a real relationship to come out of it. i had recently ended a four year relationship (my only relationship at that point) and i was literally doing the online dating thing to get an idea of how to date because i had never really done it before haha. i was happily surprised to meet a wonderful guy that I adore and have now been dating for over a year : ] no wedding plans yet but i can definitely see it happening : ]

I met my FI online. He saw an old profile i had on match but like me he didn’t want to actually pay for match so he looked up my sn and found me on facebook and sent me a message. We hit it off right away! That was almost 4 years ago. Now we own a home together, have a doggie child, and are walking down the aisle next spring!

My husband and I met on eHarmony.
We certainly were looking/interested to meet someone with whom we could have a serious (potentially life long!) relationship at that point in our lives.
We were married about 14-15 months after we first were matched & went on our first date.

Like RayKay, my DH and I met on eHarmony, and we both absolutely were looking for God’s choice of a mate for our lives. We corresponded through eHarmony’s system for a little more than a month, then communicated by phone and text for another month, then met in person.
Because we lived three hours apart in different states, and because DH is a pastor and has to work on weekends, and because he also was a single dad with kids in all sorts of activities, we were only able to see each other about twice a month, and only for a matter of hours at a time. However, we knew on the second date that something special was happening between us. We were engaged five months after we met in person, and were married 11 months after becoming engaged.

I’m another eHarmony bee too. FI and I were both looking to get married and we clicked right away. I highly doubt we would have met each other without the internet as we have vastly different careers and whatnot. Our wedding will be approximately 2.5 years after we initially met.

My FI and I met on Plenty of Fish! Both of us were ready to settle down and we just clicked right away. For our first date he had just planned on dinner, but we ended up still talking to one another in the parking lot until 2am! Now, it’s a little over 3 years later and we’re planning our wedding in October and hopefully babies soon after!! I know that if it wasn’t for the internet we would’ve never met 🙂

I met FI through a friend’s Facebook status. It was about a documentary a friend and I watched and so we were all opinionated about it. FI seemed to have the same thoughts as I did so I was intrigued. I clicked on his Facbeook and decided I’d send a friend request. Luckily, he accepted. We began talking through Facebook then it moved to texts. We talked for about 2.5-3 weeks before we actually hung out. =) The rest is history.
Best part of this is that neither of us were looking for a relationship nor did we ever accept or talk to “strangers” from Facebook. Funny how things work out.

You should add a poll!
I did not meet him online like all you other ladies. We met in English class in college when he stole my seat!

@nicolebug: Me and a co-worker were just talking about Myspace the other night. It was so awesome back in the day and now it’s like “mywhat?!” Hahaha.

My DH and I met on OkCupid – a fact that I try my best to hide from people! I know, online dating isn’t as taboo as it once was, but since we’re in our twenties most people act like we’re too young to be desperate enough for online dating (their words, NOT mine, people can be so freaking rude!) But I’m not the type to go to the bar or chat up strangers in public, and none of the guys I knew from work or school were anyone I was at all romantically interested in. One of my friends had been trying to convince me to sign up for a site, and I finally agreed to make a profile and go on at least one date. That one date ended up being my husband, I’m so glad she talked me into it because we never would have met otherwise, and he is just perfect for me <3

@dickinson: Sounds a lot like my story–I not only wasn’t looking for anything serious, I didn’t even believe it was possible.
We emailed via eHarmony just one or two times when we were first matched and then he disappeared. About a month later I was scrolling through old matches and emailed him out of the blue. I just said, “Hey stranger, where did you go?” The rest is history…

We met on eHarmony. Glad I tried it, but I was sure sceptical. He was on it a lot longer than I was was but it took only about a month after I joined for us to be matched and were were talking!
