I met my husband 11 years ago, when Yahoo had a dating site. (I dont think they even have it anymore) We exchanged pictures through email, and we also wrote letters via "snail mail"....it was a week after "meeting" online, that we had our first face to face date.
He lived about an 1 hour and 1/2 away from me, so we only saw each other in person, on the weekends. While chatting online or on the phone during the week. We did that for almost a whole year, before we got engaged, and he moved to the same town as me.
We celebrated our 10 year wedding anniversary last month!
My husband and I met through an ad that I placed; he lived on the other side of the state, so we spent a little time getting to know each other over the phone. I think we met within a couple of weeks or so...just celebrated our 10 year wedding anniversary.
It took me 4 months to agree to meet. We have now been together for 15 years married 13 years. We met on AOL, we like to joke we were early adopters of meeting online the funny thing is no one knows how we really met, we were too embarrassed at the time so we made up a story. :)
I was thrilled to find someone who was interested in the same things I am. To me it was just like every other email conversation. We met in person after 2-3 weeks of emailing. It didn't take long before we were inseparable.
I met my man on a Facebook dating app lol. We lived in the same area and we had some friends in common to boot. We met in person about a month after starting talking. The agreement was JUST friends. Yeah that worked out well lol.
