Heck yeah we did! E-Harmony. I had a 3 month subscription and met him in my final month. I went on a dating spree using that site – it was great lol
Then I met my fiance and the rest is history. Thanks E-Harm!
By The Way, I was originally on there because my ex (and friend) joined and offered me a coupon code for the 3 month subscription. Coincidently, he met his wife and I met my husband around the same time. E-Harmony magic, I say.

Yep match.com…. Now everytime a Match commercial comes on one of us will say jokingly … “pshh you can’t me any one good on there”.
And one time when the Eharmony commercial comes on he says “So thats what i did wrong, i should have used Eharmony!” I just started laughing. lol

I met DH on myspace. I had just left my ex-husband and my cousin who was also my Bridesmaid or Best Man of course created me a page. I wasn’t looking for love but just a friend to spend time with and go on a couple of dates with to take my mind off my failed marriage. I friend requested a couple of guys who fit the description I would be interested in. I must have friend requested DH twice because he said he denied the 1st friend request but accepted the second or something? I really don’t remember but anyways after we exchanged messages a few wks later we decided to meet since we both lived in the same town. It’s been magic since!!!
Also another one of my Bridesmaid or Best Man met her now DH of 3 yrs on Myspace. The site is garbage now (not alot of activity and if there is, it’s about music) but I’m glad I was able to find real love on it, and I’m happy my friend did too!

- Wedding: May 2014 - Scottish Rite Cathedral (New Castle, PA)
We’re an OKCupid couple! I actually got on because a friend of mine was getting on and wanted me to be able to look at the guys she was talking to. He’d been on for quite some time and messaged me within my first week on! We had a pretty high match, 96% and he made me laugh from the very first message. He’s the only person I met in real life offline and he’s absolutely the one. I still can’t believe we met online! We had a million missed connections in real life! When we met we were living a couple of hours away from each other but he worked down the street from where I did my first round of student teaching and we ate lunch at the same places. When I did my second round of student teaching my school was right down the street from his church and only a couple minutes from his house. We ate at the same restaurants and shopped the same stores in that new town as well! When I did my third round of student teaching, his mom was the secretary at my school and his brother-in-law was a teacher there. So bizarre! Thank God for OkCupid finally putting us together, the universe gave us enough opportunities that both of us totally missed out on!

I did, and it was not even a dating site. We were both on the same forum (a big board, like the Hive) and happened to share the same opinions on most subjects. And have the same humor. There was a thread named ”forum member you appreciate” and you name a person and this person chooses the next. Well, I never read that topic until I found a private message tagging me because I was named in that topic. He wrote a long, beautiful message about how he thought I was smart, funny, interesting, etc. and he was a little bit of a ”fan”. We started chatting, knowing nothing about each other (I thought he was 50 years old from all the cultural references he had ; he was actually 35 but had studied cinema and literature, my type of geek !) and he didn’t know my age or my marital status either. I had recently broken up with my ex. I wasn’t looking for love, but a virtual friend, I needed at this time. We talked about many topics, we shared A LOT of common interests and values, and one night after talking for 6 hours straight, he asked me if I wanted to have children (I don’t and that was my big challenge : the next guy HAD to be childfree). I thought the topic was delicate online, but before I got a chance to answer he said ”because I never wanted to become a dad”. I thought he was joking or testing me, but no, he was 100% childfree.
It was like all stars aligned : he was my perfect guy, on every aspect. I had this huge list of criterias I wanted in a man, and he had all of them. So we met one weekend, the physical attraction was there as much as the intellectual attraction has been, and we haven’t been able to leave each other ever since. We’ve been living to each other’s place for 5 months before moving in together (my place on weekends, his place on weekdays).
I wasn’t fully ready to get into a relationship when we met, but I mean … destiny was litterally knocking on my door, I couldn’t let him go. And everyday I’m thankful that I didn’t. 😀

I love this freaking thread!!! Fiance and I met on Myspace (shoutout to the two others on this thread that also met their match on there!). Sometimes I think that folks can be judgemental and opinionated regarding online dating. I think online dating is a great thing! It is similar to dating people we meet in person. I was working full time, in college, and taking care of my little one, so I did not have time to “meet” potential dates face to face.
My Fiance and I actually found out later that we knew some of the same people. His brother is best friends with a guy who was dating (now married) the sister of my ex-boyfriend (who my Fiance later met!). Despite this, we would have never met in person. We lived in towns that neither of us ever vistited. We talked online a little, and he asked me out. He showed me that he was a breath of fresh air right away! We hit it off and after about two months of dating we were living together! We just could not get enough of spending time together (we still can’t). He supported me right away with so much, and we both just knew! I know of many other people who meet that special someone this way.

I met my guy offline but my brother met his wife on Match. They were a perfect couple since day one and they still are!
