Though I've read down far enough to see where this ended up, I still think people can connect online. I do think it's a door-opener, yet it is wise to meet in person, with an open mind either way-of it working-or of it showing something you may not have wanted to see, or wasn't apparent by the nature of the beast.

While you can FaceTime or Skype, there are still nuances that only become apparent in-person, and on another level, only w living with someone--if a single abode is the goal; some people keep both places and it works out better. Having healthy space is a good thing.

The impractical idea of being married before getting together or living together is falling away. Not because the whole world is going to hell, as the *some* would say, but because it makes practical sense to get to know someone before committing to something that involves the rest of your life.

It can be a very loving act to say "I love you--and yes, myself as well--enough not to mess up the rest of your life, in case there is something we are not seeing at this time".

Old traditions had people living together for a year and a day as a period of learning more about each other, on a deeper level that can only be had by living together.

Theoretically, even *some* could do this; they could refrain from sex and just live together, having separate bedrooms. It would still lend them a great deal of insight that would be helpful to make a proper and correct decision.

Either way, sorry to hear things didn't go the way you'd hoped...hopefully, it made room in your life for something really great.

Congrats. At least your marriage is a happily ever after.. I'm on rocky roads.. Sigh. Some people have all the luck


My husband and I met online Jan 07 and married 08. By the time I moved there it was different ~ never who or what I thought. Over completely 9/10 and now divorcing...:(

thanks, that's helpful.

well we have been divorced for 2 1/2 yrs now

sorry to hear that.

I am very happy for you. I do believe love goes beyond the usual realm. Nothing stops love. Not even computer cables!

We had contemplated marriage. Destiny gave us a pause. There is always hope.

Wow. I am so happy for you! Sincerely. I don't trust men yet, not enough to believe one could actually love me for real. You dared to love and be loved and now you have what you want! God Bless you!

what, do you expect to fall out of love in a year or something? haha

You are very lucky. I seem to be unlucky in that area. Keep the fire burning :)

Congratulations on your new found love and loving marriage.

like the above person said- i dont know you, but i am very happy for you.

Awww, that is the most awesome thing i have read on this site.!!! I dont know u but I am happy that I am not the only one who dates from the internet, I find it so much easier to get to know someone online than meeting them in person. U dont have this anxiety thing going or fear of rejection, whereas when U get 2 know them online it makes things flow a lot smoother when U do finally meet in person. CONGRATS again

I respectfully disagree that knowing someone online makes things smoother when you meet in person. The problem there is that there are a lot of things you don't know about someone, and your brain fills in the gaps with what you hope they will be like. So when you meet in person, there is a good chance that you will have to back up and re-evaluate. As long as you don't let yourself get disappointed by this, that's OK. But I think it's better to meet sooner rather than later, at least briefly, so your image of the person will be based on reality.
