@UpstateCait: I feel betrayed! ๐Ÿ˜‰

I don’t make it up, but I don’t have a very good story, so maybe I should start!

My friend had a friend who it came out at their rehearsal dinner that they met on MySpace and she was like, embarassed and furious about it.  So at least you’re okay with it!  You could even put a cute little note about it in your program or something, and mention “yeah, we lied to you…sorry!”

@UpstateCait: We kind of met on Myspace too.  We had a mutual friend and had seen each other in passing but he added me on Myspace and we started talking online until we decided to actually hang out in person and go on a date.  I don’t really lie, I will tell people the story if they pry.  However when asked how we met I always say that it was through a friend and leave it at that.  The longer version of the online talking is cuter than “We met through a friend” but it seems so dorky sometimes and as you said, the whole online/Myspace thing (although we had seen each other in passing, it was still like meeting online) was considered weird a while back (mine was a little over 5 years ago).  Also, I remember his picture like you remember your fiance’s (a picture from his strange Halloween costume including his “Squirrels Gone Wild” shirt).

My friend and her husband met on WoW. He lived in MD and she lived in Canada. She moved down here to be with him, so there was no made up story that she tells everyone but when people say “Oh my gosh! You lived in Canada? How did you meet Dave?” She’ll make up some story off the top of her head that makes them scratch their head haha ๐Ÿ™‚

Um yeah I lie about it all the time!! Loooooong story short a substitute doctor told me I had herpes (the genital kind) when I actually don’t. Ruined my life for a brief time, but offering comfort is why my boyfriend took me out on our first date. If my doctor hadn’t been an idiot and my last boyfriend a total jerk, my sweetie and I probably wouldn’t be together.

Our relationship essentially started as “friends with benefits.” But we just say “Well, we were friends for a long time then realized we wanted more!” A little stretching the truth to make everyone more comfortable.. I say he’s the Chandler to my Monica. : )

My FH and I met on OKCupid just over 2 years ago. I had been doing the online thing for a couple of years and everyone and their brother knew, so we didn’t ever lie.

My best friend met her husband through the Craigslist personals about 6 years ago though, and they totally lied about it. In fact I think their families still don’t know. She came clean to me before they married. It was funny because she totally built up to it like she had this huuuge confession. It was cute. I could not have cared less, but I was glad she told me the truth. Now, I think the only reason they don’t tell their families is because they are embaressed by the lie itself, not that they met online. LOL!

My fiance and I met in a chat room 6 years ago (we lived 5 hours apart.. I just moved here about 2 months ago).. at first we would stutter over a story of how we met and so would the people who knew the truth (both our families) lol but now that we are engaged we don’t care… It is SO weird to think back how we met and its amazing how much we have changed together! I love it! ๐Ÿ™‚

We met on the online dating website Plentyoffiish.com.  I had just gotten out of a on and off again relationship about 4 months earlier and just went on that site for seeing what was out there. I think he messaged me first. We talked on and off on that then on yahoo messenger and then on the phone.

We decided to meet at a Red Lobster not to far from where I lived, he lived about half an hour away.  When we met there, the wait was for an hour and half so we decided to go to a little Italian place not to far away. We had good good and conversation.  We didn’t want to the date to end so we decided to park his car in my apt complex and go a movie. Well little did I know once we got back to my apt complex and started to drive away in my car, did I realize that I blew a tire out. Luckily we were still in the parking lot, we got my car back in the one car stall I had, it was night time and really bad lighting or he would have tried to change my tire. I told him not to worry and I would take care of it the next day.

So we had couple of hours to kill before the movie started, we had planned on going to look at Christmas lights around the area first. (We met end of Nov) but instead decided to just sit in my apt and talk. Not to worry ladies at the time I lived with a male roommate who that is all he was to me was a roommate but he was a big burly guy and he was home so I knew if things got out of line he would toss my date out. 

Nothing got out of hand we talked for hours and realized we had missed the start time of the movie.  By the end of the night, he was all gentleman like and asked me first before he could kiss me. 

From there as they say was history.

Oh and we tell the truth how we met see no need to lie

I sort of lie. Fiance and I made out on my friend’s couch while our mutual friend threw up White Castle cheeseburgers in the bathroom. Not the most romantic of stories, lol. We simplify it and say we met through a mutual friend and hit it off immediately. It’s still true, it’s just not nearly the whole truth. ๐Ÿ˜‰

we sorta lie. we met through our blogs but didn’t feel like explaining that to or parents so we just told them that we went to school together. we did go to school together, we just didn’t know the other one was there!

now we just tell the truth, well i think we do to everyone but our parents. at this point, six years later, it doesn’t matter. lol
