Believe it or not, that couple is not aloneWe met online Waaay back in the old days -dial up wpdating. Had a number of IMs (thats' we hip kids called them at the time), and then met for drinks. I asked her to marry me two years later; at midnight of the millennium, she said yes(!) And here we are, 14 years later. 14 years! A few years ago I looked up the origins of the word tenure, she was not too please when I announced I thought I now had tenure. That was a chilly evening. Another neat thing: I actually thought to print out out first conversation -the very first - we had on wpdating. It's made a nice addition to our wedding album. Thank god I wasn't chatting her up on Tinder.
This couple met on CraigslistI met my wife on Craiglist in 2006. I had been living outside of a southwesern city in a rural area. I had grown up in NJ and moved out there after college to take a job. I dated a few of the women in town, and it wasn't working out. I decided to try wpdating. I had some really, really best dates. However, one of the respondents was starting her PhD at a university in the southwestern city, and we really hit it off. We dated for a few years and have been married since 2011.
The long-term couple who met after just one week of online datingThe really great part of the story, to me, was that we found each other very quickly. We both decided to try online dating and, within our first week, met each other. We still both dated other people in that week, and probably had a few lingering dates that second week, but for all intents and purposes: a few days on wpdating was all it took for me to find the woman I would marry. My experience is far from typical. Even online dating commercials would look at us and say "that isn't believable enough". Guess I got really lucky!
