As much as I laugh, shake my head and guffaw at people attempting to find love on the net...it actually happened to me.
Over a year ago now I met my current gent (and likely my last
) on a video streaming site in canada (now defunct but with a US site).
I was very skeptical, however we chatted online for several months and met last summer and it was bizarre! I don't fall into the belief of love at
first sight but that's truly what it was. Warm, genuine, true to his word and everything he said he was and then some. I went back home (he was in
Ontario and I visited for 10 days with friends and met him there) a few months later and 1000's of hours on the phone he moved to Vancouver. That was
almost a year ago.
We get along so well it's creepy. I adore him and his faults and he me and mine
Alot of it has to do with expectations and a firm belief on both of our parts that honesty is the ONLY policy. That and neither of us were
intentionally seeking "dates". It just happened.
We hear of other people meeting on line and we can't help but be very skeptical...the reason is that most are out there seeking and/or hoping to be
found. We really weren't.
It can happen and like one poster said already where ever you find love take it and enjoy it!!
It was easy talking online too. Then on the phone before and after meeting personally...just be honest and demand the same.
We were very relaxed about it too...no expectations, just an enjoyment of each other...same as now. We've co-habitated wonderfully for almost 12
months and I can't help but think fate had more than a little to do with it.
Good things can come of it but don't expect too much. Be safe and enjoy meeting new people
