I fell in love and MARRIED someone I met on line. I had just gotten out of a terribly bad relationship and was not looking for anyone. I had a chat room on msn.chat where I had friends that we met up with every day and chatted. Well, one day, my wife just popped in and we started talking. I fell in love the first time I saw her picture. She was from Texas. She came to visit me in California. It was love at first sight. We made the decision to get married two weeks after we met. She came out here about six months after we met in 2001. We have been together for almost six years and married for two years. We get along very well and although we have our moments like any other couple, we are really devoted to each other and will be together for the rest of our lives.
My wife and I don't always recommend this. It has been hard at times and we have had to deal with people's comments and harsh words. But, we have had a great time and I do not regret it ever.
However, if you do it, it always has the potential to work as well. Society somehow looks upon people like us as losers, but it has become much more common than it used to be. We go back to visit her family once a year and have them come out as well. I am so thankful that my wife gave up her life to be with me and I honor that every single day.
