Cyber Love...

I've been married for five years. My husband and I go great together. I cannot imagine not being married to him now. We had a child 2 years ago and our family seems to be getting better and happier. Well, I feel awkward revealing that I met him online, three days later we were engaged and six months after that we finally met in person and got married.LOL... I think its crazy now, and ,honestly,if my child ever comes up with a stunt like that I'll spank his butt. Even though our crazy encounter was daring, I'd do it all over again.

Your experience is not entirely new but still definitely one for the books. things like that happens often but no matter how many times you say or tell your story, its always inspiring and heart warming to listen. :-) Imagine two strangers that are miles away from each other and by the twist of fate, they met at the most unlikely places. That is one made for TV romance you got there. I met my partner online two. we chatted for two months, met after that and we married the next day. hahaha Sad to say my never ended in a happy fairytale. But being hurt will not stop me in believing in miracles that love will find people in a unexpected places and in unexpected situations.

Hello there dazedaze, It is so great to read of your happiness and fortunate finding of a not only a cyber love, but also from reading your cool subject, does sound like your true soul mate as well. Many congratulations to the both of you. Well, actually the three of you since you also mentioned you folks had a child two years ago. No matter how daring and crazy your folks encounter may have begun, may it always continue to remain a most happy one! By the way, would you care to share any specifics as to what site you guys met each or any other cool stuff? Or like how you guys got to know each other, first meeting, etc...? Not meaning to be too nosey or anything, but in this day and age, it is often hard for some folks to find love and make it work, not only in real time, but also online as well. May you and he and "little" he, always be at least as happy as you are now! Take care, firefox333

As dorky as this may sound, I visited many CHristian chat rooms in search of christian friends. It was at a time in my life when I yearned for God and I really needed some direction. As I prayed for a best friend, God gave me a best friend and a husband all in one. Anyways, we arranged that I go visit him in CAlifornia for my 2 week Christmas vacation. I lived in TX. After the two week visit, I decided I could not go back home. I was deeply in love

No, that doesn't sound dorky at all. Thanks for sharing more of your story. Especially liked the part about "the rice to my beans", etc. Creatively and very cutely expressed. Since you seem to have a way with words and a pretty cool story to tell, have you ever considered possibly writing a book about the chance meeting which so positively changed your and his life? Who knows? In this day and age, it might just become a real hit. ...*wanting to insert a "friendly smile" here*... Besides, it sounds real sweet, but not too sappy! By the way, you mentioned about asking God for a friend, etc... That so reminds me of a few lines from a poem by Helen Steiner Rice called "Let Your Wish Become A Prayer". Ever heard of that or her? I've got a small wall tapestry thing of it I've had for yrs (not even sure where I got it). Part of it goes like... "Just ask God in Faith and He'll answer them all - Not always at once so be patient and wait, For God never comes too soon or too late." Left some parts out but you can prob'ly find it online if ya want. Take care, firefox333 And by the way dazedaze, welcome to myLot.

That is amazing Dazedaze! You have found your Mr Right online. In fact, I have heard from some of the friends told me they have started relationship on Cyber love. But they end up with break ... Only 1 of them get to marry the man she meet online. this couple is doing very well just like you, they have 2 kids now.

Finally I came across a subject like this one. It's unbelievable, but nowadays more and more people choose to know each other using the internet. It's funny but it can be very dangerous sometimes, and I am refering to the teenagers when I write this. They can be easily lied, or corrupted, kidnapped and so on and this is a scary thought. On the other hand, even when you think you know somebody very well because you spend a lifetime together you can be wrong. I guess it's all about listening your instincts, your heart.

I like to think that there are more GOOD ppl than Bad even though horribly evil people exist... Yes, be very cautious on the net...ive written an ehow article on dating online where i offer some sound advice when cyber dating...ehow.com dazedaze look it up it might help you out... Anyways, if you have children, warn them about the dangers of chatting online and make sure to be aware of what exactly they are doing.. Thats the reason I freak out now... I was so naive and accepted to meet my husband so willingly.. Even though I was a bit fearful, I didn't change my mind. I ,at times, wonder how things would have been different if my husband was a predator..it scares me..Luckily, God protected me, and my husband was no sicko.. BE SAFE!!!

wow, that really sound crazy, and you dare to meet a stranger online, and later married to him. So, at what website do you meet your husband? I might want to try it myself, and see if I am in great luck or not.

dazedaze no you arent crazy if you really love someone who really loves you and marry no matterr where you' met it was fate and you took it as such. I do believe' that there is one special person for each of us and if we are patient we will meet that person and he or she will be just right for us. I met my husband and knew'at once and we were married six weeks later and we never regrettedit for one moment. I am a widow now but it was a great marriage.

wow.. i enjoyed reading your experience and true, you are one lucky angel. i have the same but not exactly the same story as yours. lol.. i met my fiancee almost 10 years ago but we never really talked. he attempted to court me but i stopped him way before he even started it. we met again 5 years ago and he attempted again but i had a bf that time. this year, out of the blue, he texted me and it was the right timing because i had no bf. after 2 weeks, i said yes and shortly after, we were talking about marriage. he proposed through his parents because he can't make it in person since he is at sea. we communicate through text messaging, phone calls and video calls but only rarely.. if i look back at it, it was really fast but i will do it all over again.. it's like i've known my john for a very long time.. :P

Wow, that is pretty wild Dazedaze but I guess sometimes you've got to just throw caution to the wind and do what's in your heart. For most people I would advise to be very careful with this but it seems as if things have really been working out just fine in your particular case, so all I can say is more power to you. And when your baby grows up, try to have an understanding heart because we all do dumb things when we are young but then sometimes a few of those dumb things may just turn out in our favor. Take care and God bless you! happy mylot............Please add me as a friend!

dear dazedaze, i just love happy endings. it just makes me teary eyed everytime i read a happy ending. guess am that which you can call a hopeless romantic. for me, virtual or not, if love springs and if one wants to go deeper into the relationship, he/she just have to have faith .. and luck. ann

There is nothing to feel awkward about. I was once involved with someone I met online. Unfortunately, nothing good prospered in the relationship. Good for you, at least you have found someone really good from the net. It was quite risky at first. But then , nothing would really proper from one's life if we do not learn how to risk things. Love comes from the most unexpected places, and online is one of them.

Good for you. Nice to hear about an online encounter having happy results. So you went online and met your partner and are living happily. And you are willing to do it all over again. However you don't want your child to do anything such thing. Isn't that unfair?
