Hahah that’s adorable… FI and I didn’t meet online, but I know some couples who met through playing online video games… and not through a dating site! Why don’t people get that there’s other ways of meeting people online?!

Ha this was funny. We didn’t meet online but it goes to show how ppl have pre conceived notions about ‘internet dating’

Ha!  We actually met online on a dating website and I hate that story.  So for people that I don’t know very well, I just say we met at a bar.  Technically it’s true.  FH has met a lot of friends too from this alumni message board he’s on.  You’d almost think he didn’t know how to meet people otherwise but he had just moved to Chicago and didn’t know many people.  I still tease him though.

@tranquility: that is fantastic…Its hysterical that some people love listening to themselves talk. In one ear and out the other, HAHAHAHAHHAAH

FH and I did meet on a dating website, when people find out the details it goes silent. “Hello, did I just make you uncomfortable?”  Good lord it isn’t like we met behind bars & we are both of age Tongue out

Ahh so true. I met one of my ex boyfriends on a web forum for vegetarians and vegans, and I could never seem to get people to understand that.

I’ve dated men I’ve met in four different places online actually! But I’m only marrying one of them. 🙂

haha we met on an internet dating site too and the same kind of response happens. “good for you!” “my cousin’s narcoleptic roommate married someone they met online!” 

Like they really have nooo idea what to say to me at that point haha. Oh well. 🙂

We met on OkCupid…still don’t know what to say when people ask how we met, so I say “through a mutual friend,” which is technically true…well, MOH met her hubby on that site and told me I should try it, so I did. Lol.

We’re one of the couples that met through a video game.  I have not figured out a way to have this conversatio with people in a way where it doesn’t elicit blank stares and a response of “…uh…how did you know he was real?”

this is hilarious! my boyfriend and i met ten years ago in a chat room (we were 18 at the time)… i didnt even know his real name for three years. then one day about two years ago we were video-chatting on AIM and something clicked. he came to meet me in person a month later and then three months after that he moved all the way from san diego, ca to indianapolis, in to be with me!!!! no dating site involved. just best friends who fell in love. <3 <3

We met on a weight lifting forum and always hesitate to say we met online because of the immediate assumption made.

Nice to see that others have met online and that its working out.

We met on myspace he was looking for people who use to go to his high school.  When he searched he found me but we went there at different time.  We just started talking about the school and it just went from there.  He use to tell his co workers wer met at Maryland.
