I did. POF. Neither of our families know, lol – we said we met through mutual friends. Guess we were just weirded out by the whole online meeting thing.

suziq23 :  hotornot, if you can believe it.  He found me – I wasn’t looking so far out of my home range (he was on the other coast).  He had so much in common with my family in general, I was very drawn to him from the start and decided to chat with him even though it was pointless.   Likewise he almost decided the distance wasn’t worth it a couple of times but hung on as well.  A few jokes about meeting up and we wound up planning a 10-day road trip.  It took a long time after that to get all of our ducks in a row, but we finally got married last year after almost 9 years together, half of which we were actually in the same place.

  • Wedding: April 2017

We met online on POF. We’ve been dating for four and a half years and are getting married in April! I think it makes for a funny story. Especially since we started dating online before online dating and dating apps were a thing. Or at least an accepted thing haha.

  • Wedding: June 2017

OkCupid here! We have always told everyone how we met. I had just broken up with another guy I was dating – who I really should have ended things with months before. I had never cancelled my OkCupid account, as I was only with the ex for a few months and didn’t think of it, and when I logged back on, I had a message from now Fiance. I figured I was going to enjoy being single for awhile, but decided to message him back and go on a date, with no pressure – and that was my last first date! We’ve been together 3 and a half years and getting married next June πŸ™‚

  • Wedding: January 2010

We met on eHarmony. I’d been on it a couple months, he had just moved to my city and a friend convinced him to try it. He was getting ready to cancel his soon when we were matched.

We were matched early October, I started/initiated the guided communication, we had a phone “date” within a couple days, and our first date within a week. Knew we had something very special from the start. Moved in together and across the country a few months later, were engaged after a year, married 2 1/2 months later, and will have been married 7 years in January. Still know we have something very special πŸ™‚

Everyone knows how we met; my husband loves to tell the “how we met” story when asked.

  • Wedding: September 2017

We me on OkCupid. His family knows, mine doesn’t. My dad does computer forensics and has worked too many horror cases of girls who met a guy online. We went out for the first time on Sep 18, 2014. I was very much pushed into online dating by my friends and got the biggest kick out of the dumb thing guys would message. He was only the second guy I went out with and from the first date we just knew. He asked me out for multiple dates before our first date was over. We moved in together in Aug 2015, moved to a new city together March 2016 got engaged in July and will get married Sept 9, 2017. We messaged back and forth a couple of times then I didn’t hear from him for a couple of weeks , so I messaged him again and it just all worked out.

  • Wedding: April 2010

I met my husband online. We exchanged email for a few days, chatting on AIM, talked on the phone, went on a date a week later, became official two days later, sort of moved in together within a month and then bought our first home shortly after and have been together for 9 years. Everyone knows. 

Now that I look back I think how stupid it was to rush into meeting without doing more investigating (lol) after hearing all the horror stories but it is a very common way of meeting people. πŸ™‚

  • Wedding: April 2017 - City, State

Met my Fiance while gaming with a mutual friend. A friend invited me to play with some of his other friends and my Fiance was part of that group. We started out as friends, and a little over 3 years after being introduced, we’ll be married. Everyone knows how we met. Some people think it’s weird, but I’ll never be ashamed or embarrassed by how we met. We’re even incorporating some aspects of the game in our wedding.

I’m a bit of a homebody, and my friends would always say I’d never meet anyone if I didn’t get out more, so I guess the jokes on them!

Not me, but 2 cousins and 2 of DHs siblings met their SOs online in 2015. So far, one couple is married, 2 are engaged with weddings in the next 12 months, and the last couple has the ring and started planning, but isn’t “officially” engaged. On top of that, one of the couple’s best friends met online in 2014. They bought a house together and have committed to each other. If DH and I hadn’t met when we did, I would have been all over online dating! It beats the heck out of meeting someone at a drinking related function.

Yeah I met my now DH on Oasis back in 2012.

After 6 months healing from a nasty breakup I hit the club/bar scene and was unimpressed with the level of sleazy-ness, so tried online dating and could not have met a more wonderful and perfectly matched partner πŸ™‚ Our wedding was in July this year. Everyone knows, there’s nothing to be ashamed of in this day and age, it’s a pretty normal thing.

  • Wedding: November 2016

We met on POF, sent messages a few times, exchanged numbers and texted for a couple weeks (his sister was visiting, and the he went out of town) so we started talking around March 20th 2014, met April 3rd 2014 and have been inseperable ever since. We moved in together September 2014 and got engaged in March of 2016 πŸ™‚ 

We’re getting married in 2 months!

When I was online dating, I met 3 guys in early February, then took a break, and started talking with my SO as soon as I got back in the swing of things… And that was that πŸ˜€ we were it for each other and became “official” by our second date, which was 2 days after we met.
