We met on POF :))
Yes, my DH and I met on eHarmony. We are both Christians, too. We lived in different states. I had never been married and was in my mid 40s. He is a pastor whose first wife had left him. He had been married for more than 20 years and has four (now grown) children.
Due to the distance, our work schedules, and his obligations to his then young ‘tween/’teen children (two were already adults when we met), we only saw each other for a portion of two or, sometimes three, weekends a month. We communicated first via e-harmony, then by text and phone, and finally in person. Before we ever had our first date, we agreed that we would be approaching a potential dating relationship with marriage as the intended goal and that I would relocate if the relationship moved forward (due to the shared custody situation he was in involving his two then-minor children.) We became engaged five months after our first in-person date and were married just slightly less than a year later.
It proved to be extremely difficult for me to give up my life as I knew it (my decades-long friendships, my church family, my corporate job, my house, my major metropolitan area, etc.) to have a new life as a pastor’s wife, stepmom, mother-in-law, dog owner, etc. in a rural area of another state. And, due to the situation with my having to sell my house and wrap up my job, my DH and I were apart for part of each week for almost the entire first year of our marriage. When we were together in his town on what was long, teleworking weekends for me, he was extremely busy with his job (working large chunks of both weekend days) and his children. There was absolutely nothing easy about our transition. It was not for the faint of heart. It is only by the incredible grace of God and our commitment to God and to our marriage vows that we got through some extremely challenging years.
However, we love each other and recognize and appreciate very much the gift that each of us is to the other. We have an amazing family, a wonderful church family, and a very full and busy life. It took me about 3.5 years, but God gave me a wonderful job here, and, through DH’s older children, we now have two amazing grandchildren and another on the way. 🙂
Match.com. Turns out we were both lawyers who worked literally across the street from one another.
We met on POF but found out we had been at the exact same work conference that exact same day lol
We met in an online chatroom on AIM back in the day…It was the Limp Bizkit chatroom to be exact. Haha. Our families and friends know we met online.
We met on Eharmony. I was 25 and out of college and finding it difficult to find the right guy. I also don’t drink at all so meeting men at bars/clubs was not working out well either so I decided to try online dating. He was one of the first few matches that I received and I kept ignoring him because his occupation was engineer and I was done with dating engineers at the time. I had gone through a nasty relationship/breakup and most of the guys I knew including my ex were engineers and I was ready for something new. But we started talking and and went on a few dates and 3 years later he proposed and now we’re happily married!
I highly reccomend online dating to a lot of my friends who ask since there isn’t a stigma like there use to be and it’s a better way to meet serious men who want relationships than at bars and clubs.
We met on Match.com. We kept messaging each other back and forth on there and he asked me out on a date in 2014. We got married last month,
Met on OKCupid. Have been online dating since my teens, my parents always knew for the most part especially for the last five years since it’s normal now. Met DH July 27, 2013 online, met in person a few days later in person as we grew up in the same area. And have spent almost everyday together since then. Officially moved into together when he bought our condo 7 months in.Got married June 11, 2016.
Our happily ever after:
I am loving hearing about all of your stories! <3 <3 <3
Sure did..Pink Cupid.
We met on Yahoo Personals 13ish years ago. We dated for a year+, broke up for a while and have been happily married for a decade and have 3 kids 🙂
OKCupid. I had been on dates from eHarmony, Match, Tinder and POF in my dating career, and had the best luck with Okc by far!
I met my husband back on MySpace about 12 years ago if you can believe it! We had mutual friends and same hangout spots so he friended me and the rest as they say is history. 🙂
