We met on POF 4.5 years ago. Our first planned date (to the park for a hike) was the day after I met another guy that I really liked, so I stood him up. Just didn’t answer his texts that day. The other guy disappeared (I guess that’s called ghosting now???) So we eventually started talking again and planned another date. We went out for sushi and a drink. Two weeks later, I insisted on another date…and the rest is history.

I’m still in his phone as the girl that stood him up at the park. We’re getting married this weekend. 🙂

We did! We met on this app that I don’t even think exists anymore called MiuMeet. He messaged me on there, we got to know each other, eventually exchanged numbers, and the rest is history!

OkCupid. I went on a host of bad and boring dates for about a year before we met. Our first date was great, we totally hit it off, and the rest, as they say, was history.

We got engaged about two years later, and married a few weeks ago – so a little over three years together. We were up front about our past with everyone, and it was even mentioned as part of the wedding ceremony!

Seems like tons of people are meeting their SOs online, the question is just where’s the best platform to do it? So many choices! 🙂

  • Wedding: July 2017

I met my Fiance on OkCupid too like a lot of you!  I am a teacher and don’t have much opportunity to meet guys in person, so my friend and I (after drinking a few glasses of wine) made online profiles on a few sites.  Met a few creepers first, and then a couple weeks later my now Fiance messaged me.  

We emailed and then talked a few times and skyped once (to make sure he was same person in his pictures) and then went on our first date a few weeks later in July 2013.  We got engaged in July 2015, and are getting married July 2017.  

I was embarrassed at first and said I met him at his work instead of telling the truth, but now we own up to it and just laugh when anyone says online dating doesn’t work…I mean look at all these awesome success stories 🙂 !

My Fiance and I met on POF 5 years ago. There were a ton of weird and creepy guys but the few I went out with turned out to be some pretty great/successful guys. Like others have said, it’s just so hard to meet people in person and I don’t like bars or clubs which usually isn’t the best place to meet people. 

We messaged a few times and met up at a starbucks, chatted for two hours until they closed and then hung out outside chatting 2 more hours. The rest is history. We were always honest about how we met. I’m really thankful for online dating because I would have never met this amazing man otherwise because at the time, we lived 35-40 miles apart and our paths just wouldn’t have crossed.

  • Wedding: August 2016

We meet online in 2009. I even saved the first message he sent me because I just ‘knew’. We made contact on and off over the next couple of years. Then in 2011 it just clicked and we were inseparable. And here we are today two kids, cats, and a dog 😀

  • Wedding: February 2017 - historical mansion

That is wonderful! I met my Fiance on Tinder, and our timeframe was very similar to yours. We met in late July of last year (2015) and got engaged exactly 10 months later. We are getting married in Feburary, so it’ll be one year and six months since we first met. It is fast, but I don’t have any doubts. We had both gotten out of long relationships when we first met (he, unfortunately, had been married, so there were some legal headaches there), but our relationship is like night and day vs. our relationships with our exes. That being said, sometimes I wish we had a little more time to get to know each other just the two of us. I’ll be 36 in February, so we plan to TTC right away. Best wishes to you!

suziq23 :  We met on OkCupid. I had been on TONS of dating sites for a few years. The two worst first dates EVER came from OKCupid, so I was really thinking about deleting my account but I loved their set up. I decided to give it one more shot and also go really against type for me (because I had essentially been dating the same type of dude over and over with the same shitty results). My husband was the first and only “against type” guy I contacted and it was the best thing that’s ever happened to me. 

Incidentally, when I logged on to delete my account it took a couple minutes to figure out how to do it. In that time, I got two messages: “Hey beautiful. Nice tits.” and “You are local. Wanna fuck?” Yeah… boy was I happy to be deleting my account for good!

We met on okcupid. He was in Ohio and I am in Colorado. We talked on the phone for five months before he came to visit. Three months after that, he moved here. We got engaged in January, exactly one year after he moved here and got married last month!

suziq23 :  Yes, I met my SO on POF. Although I wasn’t sure initially if I should tell the truth of how we met, we decided it would be silly to hide it. We have a wonderful relationship and I’m proud of it. I’m the happiest I’ve ever been. We live together now and are planning to get engaged soon. My brother met his wife on MySpace and they have 3 kids together, my cousin just got married and they met online as well as one of my good friends met her SO online and they are expecting their first.

  • Wedding: May 2019

We met on Tinder 2 years ago. I had just come out of a relationship and I signed up to Tinder just to talk to people. I got a message from a guy I matched with, and I’m he very quickly asked me to meet him for a date. I said yes but then cancelled it, I had a rotten cold and I still felt so low from my break up. We did meet a little while later though, and had a lovely time. Downed two bottles of wine. We met for a second date and I ended up going back to his. I liked him so much but was still so sad. I then told him about my breakup and he was so supportive. I was also ill for the first three months of our relationship. My cold turned into a stubborn chest infection and an ear infection, I was a wheezy mess and couldn’t hear. I was so poorly and frustrated, he used to sit and watch Frozen with me when I was down. He hates Frozen! Now we live together and we’re engaged 🙂
