@Bride_to_be_MelissaDavis:  1/3 of currently engaged couples met on a dating site. Of all my friends, I know only 2 couples that met in real life. You really shouldn’t be ashamed of it at all.

@Bride_to_be_MelissaDavis:  I would just tell them, “We met online”. Online dating is so popular now, I guess I just don’t see the big deal 🙂 Congratulations!

@Bride_to_be_MelissaDavis:  My FI and I met on a dating site too (OKCupid.com to be exact) and at first I was embarassed to tell people how we met….first couple people I told we met through friends and then after that I was like screw it! I was in nursing school and didn’t have time to go out, nor did I want to go out and meet someone in a bar (my ex was an alcoholic). So I took a chance and knew almost instantly that he was the one!

I tell people we met on OKCupid because we were too cheap to go through the paid sites. No shame!

@Bride_to_be_MelissaDavis:  You should absolutely be honest and tell them you met online!

I kind of understand why people lied about it 5+ years ago, but now, I really don’t see the point. It’s such a common thing, and no weirder than meeting someone at a bar or something. When I tell people that FI and I met online, they almost always say something like, “my cousin met his wife online!” or ask about it because they’re single 😛

My spouse and I met on a dating website.  One targeted toward people who played World of Warcraft.

Unless you, too, met your intended on a website you found by googling “dating websites for gamers,” you’re probably safe with the truth.

@NicoleLyn1218:  

Lol, another OKCupid success story here!

One time FI and I were seated in the front at a comedy show, and one of the comedians asked if anyone met online, so I raised my hand, and he asked what site, and my (fairly “Jewish looking”) now-FI said okcupid, and he said, “oh the free one, the only one more Jewish than JDate!” 😛

i don’t think there’s anything wrong with meeting online.  many bees have met their dh or bf online.  it’s so common now.  totally acceptable.

I’m a fellow okcupid gal! That’s how we met. 

I get weird looks too. I think its because people look for that romantic storyline that comes with learning how two people met. Plus both me and my SO are introverts, so even being young we never partied or hit the town too much. Meeting someone at a bar or club would have been difficult and even if we had it might not have been a good match since we don’t like bars or clubs really. Lol. If you’re workaholics like us, you don’t meet people otherwise. 

I just smile and say it with pride. I make jokes about the messages he sent me or how I thought he looked or talk about our first date. I just control the conversation and delve into the ‘story’ of the relationship since that’s what most people want to hear.
