  • Wedding: September 2012

I think it was about a month. We moved from sending messages on Match to chatting on AOL to phone calls to a coffee date 🙂

About a week. No sense wasting time chatting online if there wasn’t any chemistry in person!

Darling Husband pestered me to meet him for 5 months before I caved. I had a boyfriend, so I didn’t want to lead him on in any way. Finally I agreed to coffee, however, and the rest is history…

Let’s just say it was more than coffee, lol.

@Cornmuffin09:  Meeting online is the standard thing in my social circle, actually. We lived in Boston at the time – it was the only way to meet people outside of your grad program or office when you worked a bazillion hours a week!! I’d say about 60% of the people I know who are married met online.

  • Wedding: May 2014

We started messaging on match, only a few emails, and then moved to phone.  It was that same week we met, I had to go out of town for a new job and training, and we met the day I came back.

I wrote him on May 28, he didnt answer until June 4 (says he was out of touch of a pc). We met on June 5 for a 10 hour date.  I had date with someone else scheduled for next night.  I called that guy and said ” sorry. not dating anymore”.  Here it is 12 years later.

We saw each other in person about a year after we met.  We met on a roleplay chat site (AD&D, White Wolf, etc. type make-believe roleplay) that I had frequented for years.  I don’t really consider it “creepy,” cause the community is pretty small.  We talk(ed) almost constantly over the phone or IM’s, though.

I think I have the date of our first message so I could probably tell you. My best guess would be somewhere between 2 weeks to 2 months.

A couple months (but that was due to being in different countries at first)

  • Wedding: October 2013

We met about a year and a half after meeting online on a RPG website where I was an admin and he was a player, who advanced to be a moderator. It took so long mostly because we live in different countries. It will be almost 6 years since we’ve met when we finally get married.

Two weeks I think? Maybe one… he remembers, but I don’t. haha. Apparently I responded to him the day of the infamous Virginia earthquake, I think. Again… don’t remember. Got used to online meeting, and when it’s in a super public place, I didn’t see the harm.
