Is online dating good for romance? Real Views. Souce BBC News

Post date: 2006-01-28

I'm American and my husband is British we met five years ago on the net via an online role playing game and have our first wedding anniversary in two months. We didn't actually meet in person for a year after meeting, and spent huge amounts of time on the phone and the net via our game. My dad explained it to my grandparents as modern day courting! You can't do anything but talk and get to know each other. At 35, neither of us has ever been happier. I do recommend several months before actually meeting and be honest if you are serious!

I met my man on the net too. Not an internet dating service, but a chat room. Highly recommended. I'm overweight, and I knew he'd never have looked at me twice in a bar, or club, but he "fell in love with the real Hazel" before he'd even seen me!

I met my wife on a dating website. We married last April and are expecting our first baby this April. We couldn't be happier. I've met the love of my life. My soul mate. I would recommend dating websites to anyone. They do work.

met my fiancÚ online almost four years ago. We are getting married in July. I wasn't looking for it, but it just happened. I'm happy that I let myself get into something less than traditional, otherwise I would have missed out on this great love. I think people need to be vigilant about who they meet online, but sometimes wonderful things can happen.

I met my partner online. After chatting online for a few days through an online dating site, we spoke on the phone. That first phone call lasted over four hours. I think we both knew then that it was meant to be, there was definitely something there from that start. We have seen each other ever since. Have now been together for over two years and have been living together for 10 months. We are very well suited to each other. If I had never used internet dating I would not be with my partner now. So I can definitely say is a good thing to meet someone online.
