Finding Love On The Internet

Fri Mar 30, 2007 7:57 am

Mind you, it's not happening to me, and I'm not planning on it to happen either. Big grin But the other day I was talking with my best friend, and started discussing whether a relationship with someone you've only met through the internet would really work. I said I'd find it very doubtful, due to factors such as distance, and the fact that you don't really know the person, can't really tell if he/she is being truthful... and even if he/she is, there's the element of face-to-face interaction that is just not there. In reply, my friend told me the story of his cousin, who met a woman in Uruguay through a chatroom. After about a year of online relationship, they finally met in person, married a short while after, and are living happily in Uruguay. So, in short, it does work, according to him.

So, what do you, my fellow a.nutters, think about it? Has it ever happened to you?  Silly And even if it hasn't, your opinions are most welcome!

I think situations you can end up in as a result of being online may certainly lead to romance (I know of one current example), but I'm only aware of one direct chatroom hookup that ever resulted in a happy marriage/long-term relationship, and that covers 15+ years of being online.

Physical love, definitely.  scratchchin 

Its been my observation that the best relationships are born from friends hooking-up friends. After all, they know you when you're a schmuck and when you're Prince Charming/Cinderella (either moniker applies to Gavin). Mine was born in a bar, which may explain why I'm entertaining thoughts of how to dispose of the body.  irked

I only know of one guy that ever really "found love" on the internet. He's an Apache Pilot. I was stationed with him in DC. Hellofa decent fella.

He tried that internet dating mess. Much to everyone's surprise, cause Jack was/is a strapping man, and not bad looking. He played around there for a while, and finally - after several months - he went on a blind date to meet "Kelly". And they hit if off.

Last I saw Jack, he was stationed at Bragg, still flying Apaches, he and Kelly were married and had a crumb snatcher inbound.

I guess one time out of a thousand, it might work out.

The kinds of love that are freely available on the Internet can be sought after and found with much less hassle at 'Glitter Gulch'. Ask any of this year's LAS meet attendees; they know what I'm talking about. That's the kind of place where you'll get to show your 'O' face...

Actually, in all seriousness, I do know someone who married a girl he met on the Internet. They were friends for a few years before hooking up, and it's working out pretty good for them. I think they just passed 3 years of marriage and they have a bun in the oven.

I have to agree with Legoguy. It is possible. I met my girlfriend on match.com, and we are quite happy together... In fact, there is the possibility that she could have a ring on a certian finger in a few months. I got on match after a friend kept bugging me for a few months to do it, and within two weeks, I had met my Julie. After chatting through email an dover the phone for a couple of weeks, we met at a local starbucks and we hit it right off from the start. I have never been happier and have no regrets about how we met...

I've had two relationships that started out online. One of them ended after a three-year period (only being physically together for a week in total) and the other, after 6 months.

The latter is actually an a.netter- he cheated on me, stole money from my mom, got me pregnant and then left me a month after talking me into having an abortion.  Yeah sure

Needless to say, I'm not really intending to go there again...

I got into an uncomfortable situation once when I was talking to the assistant at my dentist's practice. She was walking around doing some preparatory stuff and was talking to me about this and that. Me, lying on that torture chair. Somehow, the topic of relationships came up and I mentioned my long-distance relationship and how it's difficult to keep close and all that. "I suppose much of the contact happens over the internet then?", she asked, and I gloomily said. yeah, it does, and love via the internet is not really possible and so on. "Oh really", said she, "I met my boyfriend online and we're really happy together.." DAMN. I put my foot in it, didn't I. So I hurried to say how many exceptions to the rule there are and how the internet can be really helpful and whatnot.  Smile

One of my best friends met her guy online and it's working out really well...they recently moved in together and appear to have a healthy relationship.

I don't think it's all that different from meeting someone in some random place, like a park or a bar.

I actually met my wife through a Yahoo! personal classified.

Emailed for about a week, talked on the phone every day for a couple of weeks. Finally met each other about three weeks after the first email.

Dated for about 10 months before getting engaged while on a Caribbean cruise.  bigthumbsup 

As I type this we have been married for 6 years and almost three months. We have two beautiful daughters (3.5 years and 15 months), and everything is going really well.

I guess you could say I am living proof that it can happen.

While I think theres nothing wrong with searching and finding love online, I do think that romantic relationships cannot be just online-based...there has to be more face-to-face dating than just IM chatting or whatnot...this means that if you do seek out love online, do it with people in your own area!!! Don't seek out long distance relationships online...that just seems like trouble for me, though your view may vary...

I've met my current partner over the Internet. "Distance" wasn't really a problem - he was living 30 driving minutes from where I lived. 5 years have passed, and we're still together - obviously it's not an Internet relationship anymore, we moved together in the meantime  Smile

So yes, there are exceptions, but I don't know many other people who found their significant other this way. I just consider ourselves lucky...

Yes, I do believe online relationships can work, but it depends on the person at the other end.

I'll use the LV meet as an example. IMHO, those who attended the meet act the same way online and they do in real life. I had a great time and will certainly attempt to go to other meets in the future. The same would apply to online relationships, if both parties are truthful and honest with each other, I can see where a real-life meeting could be successful.

Besides myself, I know two people who have tried online dating (Match.com). One is now married with child. The other did find someone, but the relationship ended after a few months. As for myself, I had absolutely zero luck. I found plenty of women in my area that I found attractive, but none of them bothered to respond.

I tried to use Eharmony.com, but after filling out their "free personality profile" on two separate occasions I was informed that they couldn't find a match.

Despite my experience, I don't think online dating is bad, just another option to choose from along with finding someone in a bar, at work/church/grocery store, or friends playing matchmaker.

Definately worked for me.

Bit of a long saga....

He is a US Citizen and I am a Brit. We started chatting in some random chat room and agreed to swap emails. We ended up chatting every day. I went on holiday to the US and we spoke for the first time, on the phone, for 8 hours! Talk about a "click!"

We ended up talking for a couple of hours every day (thank f%$k for Skype  Smile ) - the time difference between LA and the UK worked well with our schedules - as I would be getting to bed, he would be getting up for his shift, then as I woke up, he would be back. Did this for a good few weeks when we decided to book a flight to meet around Easter 05. Seeing as I am a bit of a mileage junkie, I decided to do a run to Chicago the following week for just one night. He decided to fly from LA to Chicago to meet me for the first time. Landed around 3pm and left at 6am the following morning  Smile

Something must have worked  Wink because he decided to fly over to London for a couple of nights a few weeks later. I then did the same a few weeks after to California, and he once again to London for the night, so by the time of our originally intended first meeting, we had met 4 times.

During the Easter visit, we both decided that it couldn't go on any longer (too expensive) and he had researched and decided to go for a Student Working Visa stay in the UK to see if there was anything substantial between us.

The work placement fell through 48 hours before he was due to leave the US, so he decided to come and find work anyway. He struggled to find work, but ended up with Vodafone. His visa was only to last 6 months.

Things were going well, and a one in a million chance, happened to work for a great boss who agreed to sponsor him to stay in the UK. Couldn't have been any luckier, as it allowed us to stay together.

Anyway, to cut the rest of the (already) long story short, we are doing the Civil Partnership this summer. Feeling very very lucky  Smile

Nice to see there are some success stories.

I'd like to toss my  twocents  in, seeing as how I've already spilled alot of my dating troubles before on this forum, might as well spill a few more.

Most of my dating success has come from the internet. I used to frequent chat rooms constantly, and abused my instant messengers. I still have a webcam left over from that era in my life. To be honest, finding dates over the internet isn't all that dissimilar from other methods - the alpha male who flaunts his shit will get the most attention. Women plays games with men (you women do, admit it): they try to use phrases to set men up to try to say the right thing and if they don't he ain't playin the game right. The women that talk attractive and present themselves to be a hot chick that is horny all the time are the fakers, and those women who come off as the most realistic are just as homely, lonely and desperate as I am, and that's not appealing to me. I don't need someone on par with me, I want a better half. I would love to date someone with confidence and has natural beauty, but those women are hard to find. I've met quite a few women over the internet, and had some really aykward uncomfortable dates. And yeah, probably a lot of it was my own personality, I'm not terribly outgoing, won't go out of my way to meet new people, and it takes me awhile to open myself up and be me infront of new people. Alas, I've given up on the internet in the short term as a tool to meet women. I'm trying to force myself into being more outgoing. I'm making a concious effort to be in more conventional social situations and try to be more outgoing and likeable towards others. It's not easy, but I'm at least trying.

As for the OP's question, do I think it's possible to find love on the internet? Sure, I think it's possible - if two people meet and everything clicks then that's just wonderful. But there's a lot of shit to wade though to get to the promise land.

I know one couple, he is from Wisconsin, she a Filipina who at this time was working in California, who met on a chat room. After a while they decided to meet and hit off. She eventually moved to Wisconsin and they have been happily married for several years now. But they also had a transitional period, where thy would visit each other.

My girlfriend lives in Ireland, while I'm living in Germany. While we started out by really meeting (I got introduced to her by a former colleague from the Philippines), we use the internet extensively to chat and discuss things. Often we just set up the webcams and talk on the phone, so at least we can see each other's faces.

That's the way I would have wanted it too. In my own and his defense, we did what we could to prevent pregnancy, but I've always believed that if you get yourself pregnant, you should deal with the consequences and have the baby.
But I guess that's what you get for falling for the oldest trick in the book: "come on, I love you, we'll have lots of children later! But this will ruin our chance to be young yadda yadda yadda. I just can't deal with being a father, it'd ruin my life!"  Yeah sure

I did want that baby and I regret what I did. He still doesn't give a shit, but I'm guessing that's just the way he is. He later admitted that he didn't give a crap about me when he talked me into having the abortion too- why he didn't just leave me and let me deal with the pregnancy myself, I'll never know.

First of all, there are plenty of websites, incluing subscripton sites similer to our A-net, that specialize in dating leads, including some for same-sex relationships. Problem is that they tend to have only a disportionate small number of desirable women and way too many unattractive men. You also have Facebook.com and similar sites with search functions, although such sites have their own set of issues. Then you had chat rooms, until they got ruined by liers, porn and kiddies. One may meet someone somewhat indiectly at sites where have a common interest, including certain activities (sports), interests (art, collecting stuff), medical conditions and so on.
For most people, church, school, university, the work place or connections via friends or relatives, activities tends to be the best way to meet people to date and find a relationship with.

Thanks for all your replies, people... lots of interesting opinions here! And it's good to see some happy stories as well,

Quoting Kunoichi (Reply 9):
Needless to say, I'm not really intending to go there again...

You'll eventually find a good guy for you... just hang on  Smile

Actually, true love finds you. Mysterious forces at play. No coincidences. Just prepare and be ready to seize it. The thing passes like a train... that doesn't stop anymore.

Very well said!

Hehe... actually, the LAST place I'd ever look for a date is a.net (following on a good advice Janni gave me a while ago).  yes 
Don't expect to see me around that much (if at all) -- the contact link should still work, though.

Yes, I agree that you should stay away from the rest of these guys here at A.net.   Smile


The whole idea of finding a date on the Internet still seems a little weird to me but I know of people that have ended up in fantastic relationships.
For me I am a friendly and outgoing person and never have a problem meeting women in public, If I happen to stumble across a lady at a site that I frequent, I wouldn't object to meeting/dating/hooking up.
Then again, I hardly pass up an opportunity to flirt.

LOL!  rotfl 

I haven't hit on every female here at A.net. Just the one's I like.  Smile
RealHigh lived here in SFO and I let stay at my place before she moved off to Belgium.
There are plenty of ladies here I haven't hit on such as 767Lover, Speedbirdie, Gumha, ADG, BASpeedbirdee, Kunoichi and many others.
