  • Wedding: June 2018

Met on Tinder in July of last year, met up for the first time on August 6th where he felt it was necessary to bring along a friend of his (he had a really bad experience with Tinder prior to me..just making sure he stayed safe I guess lol), spent the whole night talking (after we ditched his friend) and have been inseperable ever since.  We moved in April of this year, got engaged October 5th and our wedding isn’t until June of 2018 as he is finishing his last year in University in Electrical Engineering so he is really busy with his degree project.  Plus then it gives us another year to save for our wedding so that we aren’t relying on loans and also gives him time to find a job within his career field.

suziq23 :  I met my Fiance online as well. I had gotten out of an icky relationshp and it hadn’t been a year yet but I felt like I was ready to get back into the swing of things. I made a profile on OKCupid fall of 2014 and had gone on some dates that didn’t turn out to be anything. The night I messaged my Fiance, I had gone on a bad date (December 2014)…..was ready to give up for a while because maybe that was fate telling me I wasn’t ready. I was looking through what they call “quick match” so I wouldn’t have any notifications (pet peeve of mine) before deactivating. I saw his profile and read the whole thing, then sent a message. I got a response within 30 seconds, and he said he had been typing a message to me as well. We exchanged numbers later that week and went on a date 2 weeks after that first message. We bought a house in May and he proposed 10/1/16…we are getting married 12/2/17.

  • Wedding: November 2017

I met my Fiance on Plenty of Fish. I was about to delete my account because I was over it. I had men harassing me on messages for not replying, two failed relationships from the app, and I pretty much gave up. I decided to stay on another day because it was such the pain to delete my account on the app. I happened to check my messages, and there he was. He messaged me telling me that he was throwing his daughter a frozen themed 2nd birthday party. And he asked my daughters age. Turns out they are the same age, born 11 days apart. We started talking Thursday and by Sunday , we had our first date. We talked for 3 hours at the restaurant and everything just felt natural. It was the best first day I’ve ever been on. After trying to push him away on the second date , because I was afraid getting hurt again, he showed me that good guys do exist and fought for my attention. He too knew there was an undeniable connection. This was March 2015 and we moved in together a couple months later. We are getting married next November! 

He has been a great father to my daughter who’s dad isn’t in the picture anymore. My ex anD I  divorced when I realized how much of an alcoholic he is. My Fiance stepped up and has been a blessing to both our girls. We are just so lucky!!

He proposed during our first family photo shoot 🙂

Tinder!! Haha. Going on two years now! There’s a lot of weirdos on Tinder and I was mostly on it for fun after a breakup, just to have people to talk to and hang out with. We had an amazing first date and the rest is history

  • Wedding: January 2017

We met on DatingBuzz. I sent him the sites generic hello message when he popped up as a match on the same day I joined. He had been online dating for about a year. We started chatting right away and pretty soon exchanged phone numbers.

He was my first meet up in real life from the site, and my last 🙂

We got engaged in March and will be getting married in January 2017 on our 2year anniversary.

 I told my parents right away but we only told his family that we had met online after we had been dating for some time.

  • Wedding: September 2017

I met my Fiance on POF back in October 2013. Turns out we went to the same college and university, but just at different times, since he is 5 1/2 years older than I am. I had been on POF twice before and closed my account with no such luck and I gave it a third try and came across his profile and I messaged him first because of our shared interests. At first I didn’t think the relationship was going to work since he was extremely shy, did not talk much and he was very close minded. However, with some time and patience, he has blossomed into the most outgoing, funny and amazing man he is today. Our relationship progressed quickly. We moved in together in November 2014, got engaged May 28, 2016, and we are getting married September 2, 2017. We are super happy and excited! And our families know how we met. Most of our couple friends met on the same site. And there is no shame, we would have never met otherwise since we lived far from each other. So I am happy to have met the one, no matter how that was.

I did!! We met on tumblr in 2012, neither of us with the intention to date. He had a photography blog, I used Tumblr as a way to procrastinate through university.. and ta-da! 🙂 
We just got engaged, actually! I couldn’t be happier! 🙂

  • Wedding: May 2017

I met my fiance on Match! We joke that we were the only people in our area NOT in grad school. I saw he was tall and had blue eyes on his profile. He had a kinda crappy goatee in a few of his pictures but I just remember thinking “Ehh it’s a date at best, not like I’ll marry him..”

I’m a huge believer in online dating!!

  • Wedding: June 2015

We met on OKCupid. I asked if he digs “tall chicks” because I am taller than him. I didn’t think it was going to work as the attraction wasn’t instantly there (and told him it wasn’t going to work) but as I got to know him more the attraction grew. We got hitched June 2015.

  • Wedding: August 2017

I met my man on Meetme(at the time it was myyearbook). it was a total accident. Not trying to meet anyone. He answered a question I had about trucks and it turned into a long conversation. We exchanged numbers as friends, and talked for about 7 months before we met in person in July of 2011. Became “official” in Aug of 2011, and in Sept of 2011 found out we were expecting our first baby (oops).  I moved in with him in Oct of 2011, had our first child 4/18/12. Found out in December 2014 that we were expecting our second little person. He was born 8/19/15. He finally proposed on 2/26/16, and are in the middle of planning our Lakeside wedding for August 25th 2017. ❤

  • Wedding: October 2017

We did!!! We met on OkCupid in March 2014. We went on our first date 2 weeks before I graduated from college and moved back home. In that 2 weeks we began officially dating ( 5/1/14) and continued our relationship once I moved 45 minutes away. 3 months later I got a job offer 2 hours away from him, so he took a huge leap of faith and moved out there with me. We’ve now been together for over 2 1/2 years and just got engaged less than 2 weeks ago on 12/3/16!! I never really thought I’d find the One online. It almost feels like fate with how perfect the timing was and how it all worked out especially with the time crunch at the very beginning of our relationship.

  • Wedding: April 2017

We met on okcupid. Funnily enough his sister and her husband did too. I had online dated on and off for years and he’s the only relationship I ever had come from it.

I met my husband from POF too! We don’t care if people know it was online it’s not so taboo nowadays.

Plus we are both parents and worked so it gave us time to get to know each other before deciding if we thought it was worth the effort or not.
