@Take The Reins:  H and I met on POF. But, it’s really not the best site. Since it’s free, it tends to draw a lot of creeps

My brother and his Fiance met on True.com. They have been happily together for 7 years.

We met online! A lot of our friends have also met their SOs/spouses online, so I think it’s pretty common.

I think that the Hive is a skewed place to ask this question as most of us are more apt to use the computer to use forums and stuff… Maybe I’m wrong though? 

 

I know FH and I met online 3.5 years ago by chance and it’s worked out very well for us. We also met on POF.

We met online. It wasn’t through a dating site, but it was online nonetheless. 🙂

I met my SO online, and my brother met his wife at Match.com

I also know three friends out of my group that met online, as well as some of the SO’s friends. It’s very common, and is losing the stigma it once had. I found that I got to know my SO on a deeper level before we met. Online you tend to be less reserved and share more because you are not face to face. There are ALOT of creeps I had to deal with before meeting SO, but I don’t regret it at all.

I met Darling Husband on jdate and my mom met her longterm bf on eharmony. It turned out Darling Husband and I lived 4 blocks from each other in a small area, so I think we would have met, but maybe not so I am glad we were both online.

FI/ then just friend, was on a dating website and was trying to talk me into doing the same thing, I was about to sign up and was excited about it when I got really nervous and quickly nixed the idea becasue I was afriad the site would match me up to him!!!  We had gone to middle and highschool together and had been just good friends, we reconnected after college and our friendship picked up where it had left off. a few months after I decided no the dating website because I didnt want to date FI, we started dating!!!  I realized that I really liked him, and soon after fell in love with him!!  Then after 2 years of dating he proposed, we are so in love!  So it’s kind of funny makes me giggle, I now wonder if we would have been a match on that website!! haha

Fiance and I were friends on fbook before meeting, but that’s not how we met (a mutual friend introduced us). Nevertheless, Fiance admits to looking at my profile page on fbook when we didnt know eachother and wanting to meet me!

Kind of… we met on Craigslist because I had a spare ticket, and he was looking for a ticket.  And voila, we’re getting married.  🙂

I met my hubby online while playing an MMO!  We weren’t looking for love, but when we finally met in person, we both knew that was what we’d found.  My brother met his wife (of 10 years!) online while playing a role playing text based game.

Yes.  We met through a mutual friend’s Facebook status.
