    Yes, I Did...

    And I went to Prom with her my Senior year in high school. Too bad she turned out to be incredibly boring (and kissed like a wet pillow). Oh well. I guess it really is like they say, you can never trust the internet to truly reveal someone until you finally meet them in...

    Darling Demon Of Destruction

    I met my girlfriend Jojo online. It was the best yet worst decision I've ever made. We met on this writing website called wattpad and we talked for months before she started dropping hints that she liked me. Being the socially awkward weirdo she is, she was too shy to ask me out...

    I did this although it can be very dangerous

    if you go about it the wrong way. I actually met my current partner for the first time at my house which is crazy dangerous and I don't suggest anyone do that. Luckily he was not a psycho or stalker and everything turned out well. And a bonus, he looked exactly like his picture...

    I got talking to a woman on pof.

    Exchanged phone numbers and started texting. Found it a bit bizarre to talk to some one I'd never met by text. We met up at a pub quiz night this week and had a great time. She is good looking, slim and seems genuine. I am cautiously optimistic as she's seems to be making a lot...
