It was simple, really We met on a site called LiveJournal. We were friends there for a couple of years, writing in each others journals as well as mutual friends journals. Things just went from friendship to romance to living together to now, six plus years later, still together, still in love, still happy

Sorry, I have no idea. I avoid love like the plague. I've seen it happen and know a couple that have been together ten years from the internet and two other couples I met got married to each other--these were all over a guitar forum, too!

To know that you're in love? -- If you got the LOVE BUG :P can't eat properly, can't sleep all through the night, can't do anything without thinking of that special someone. And you feel like you stammer each time you talk to her. You feel like you're being stupid but you're not. Yup, that's how you'll know that you are in love. Everything revolves around with that special someone.

How does anyone fall in love anywhere? I don't see what the big difference is. In fact, I think it's actually better. You get to know who the person is without the stress of always putting up a front of attractiveness and perfection. You have a better chance of getting to know who they are inside than who they want you to think they are since there isn't the physical intimidation and the anonymity of the internet.

i did not say there was a big difference i just simply ask a question,why would any one have to to put up a front of attractiveness and perfection in person,all people have to do is just be them selves and who's to say that the person you cant is really what they are.good lord i did not mean to start a war i was just interested in what people thought.

My fiance and I met online. Before I go any further I must tell you we met through a mutual friend that we both knew offline. I think I know what your saying, I don't think your really looking for someone like me who had a real life acquaintance to set us up. I have met another guy online before my fiance, and this guy ended up being a real prick. I met him online, without anybody I know knowing him. I think that if you don't know the person personally, or do not know anyone who knows the person personally then you should be careful. Not all people are bad that you meet online, but the majority of them have quirks you just don't realize until you met him. Luckily for me, the quirks I found in my ex boyfriend, are not any that I found with my fiance. I knew him inside and out basically before I even met him, and I think that's why we fell in love so suddenly after meeting only once. I started dating him a week after I met him, and well, I think that no, I know that god had a big step in helping us meet! Well, I hope I quenched your curiosity, and thirst for opinions! I hope that you have a very wonderful and lovely day!

It's really hard to explain but like most of us when you feel that there's a certain connection then you think you've fallen in love with someone you haven't even met. Love can happen anytime...any way...in any place. It'll just hit you without you even noticing that you've been hit. It's hard to explain or to understand even but it really does happen. But be very careful though sometimes people just want to take advantage of you so be very careful.

the problem with people is that they use the term falling in love to mean different things. Meeting and liking a person whom you met in the Net without actual eyeball or personal face to face contact doesn't mean your in love. Your only infatuated. A handsome or a pretty face may jumpstart your hormones but you might end up loathing later on when he or she has a nasty hidden personality when you actually meet him/her.

My husbands cousin met a guy in a chat room. They talked online for almost a year. They had so much in common they talked on the phone and then after a short time he came to the usa to meet her. He returned to England and they continued corresponding and talking. He visited again. The third time he moved here, they married, and are very much in love and happy. I think because they really got to know each other and became friends over the first year it made the difference. In fact, I knew my husband and we talked on the phone all the time before we ever dated. We became good friends first. We have been happily married for 22 years now. It all started with chatting on the phone,,the same as chatting online in my opinion.

Hi mommamusic, I suppose when they correspond to each other long enough and send photo and now days you can do all sorts to get to know each other on the net and that why they fall in love, although I don't understand, I rather have them in a flesh. Tamara
