    Yep, we met on Match.com (my cover-up story for my older relatives is that we met in the Community Band… which was one of our first dates, anyways.)

    I met my Fiance on jdate and my mother met her longterm bf (no desire to remarry) on eharmony.

    We met through OKCupid.  I had also met my previous serious boyfriend online (through AOL Personals in like… 2000).  My parents (mom + stepdad) also met online in 1998, back when people didn’t really met online.

    *meekly raises her hand*

    I met my Fiance online, on a website that has since gone extinct so you guys probably wouldn’t know it anyways. It was actually a dare from a friend that I even put up a profile – same with him (his friends dared him to do it). However, very VERY few of our friends and family know that this is how we met. We always say that he met a friend of mine at a party and she played matchmaker. πŸ™‚ Finally told our parents the truth a couple of years ago!

    I can’t say i did.

    I met my SO through friends. I was meeting up with a friend who was meeting up with the friend he was with (does that make sense?) at a bar and we sat across from eachother at the table, chatted all night and the rest is history. We frequently still go to this bar and usually sit at the table and it gives us a huge smile. =]

    yep! And not on a dating site. We both had mutual friends who were part of a forum and we all joined a video chat on yahoolive…. so that I could talk with my friends out of state and his friends could do poker stuff.

    We “met” of there and then talked on the phone/email/im for 3 months before we decided to meet.We lived 6 hours apart

    It was actually  pretty nice to have soooo much time to talk before meeting and know practically every thing about each other.

    Yep! We met on Lavalife! We tell the older people we met at school…which technically isn’t a lie because our first date was at a pizza parlor across the street from my school. We went to schools 15 minutes away from each other πŸ™‚

    OKCupid for us! He was my highest worldwide match, but I lived in MA and he was in PA. And then, I moved to Pittsburgh, and he was my first and only date in this city – needless to say, it went well πŸ™‚

    I met my husband on Match.com.  While it’s not the most romatic story, I’m honest with people about how we met.  And once we were open about, several friends and family members came clean and admitted that they too had met online and had been lying about how they met!

    I have a college friend who met her husband on ICQ Random Chat (circa 1999/2000).

    And after I met my guy on Match.com, my little sister went on and met her husband too.

    I’ve never really told the whole complete story of how my hubby and I met on WB. And I still won’t, haha, but what if I met his roommate online who introduced us? Though the site we met at was not a dating site. Does that count as meeting my hubby online on any level? I guess a website played a big part…. hmm very confusing.

    We met on Eharmony. We’ve been ver open about it, although he may have told his grandparents a cover story.

    We met on Match.com. It’s always surprising to me to hear people’s reactions when I tell them this IRL (from curiosity to incredulity), but I’m a homebody and was a middle school teacher at the time, so it’s not exactly like there were dateable men around me ever. πŸ˜‰

    My mom also met my stepdad through JDate. I guess it runs in the family. πŸ™‚
