Online dating couples success stories

Posted by Ria, 29 Feb 08

This decade has been a decade of online dating explosion. Most dating websites have proven their success though several success stories about couples who have met through internet dating services.

The twist to these matches is most (if not all) of these couples have been successful with long distance relationships … some living practically worlds apart.

With all the independence of doing-what-you-gotta-when-you-wanna, how do they cope with suddenly having to live together? How do they cope with the other person suddenly ‘crowding’ them? Do these unions continue being successful once they move in together?

Your perfect partner could be online right now...

What are you looking for?

Just wondering … :?:

    I met my soul mate 3 years ago on AfroRomance. I currently reside in NC and he lives in Summerville SC. We have a long distance relationship. We see each other every other weekend even more, We just Celebrated 3 yes in the mountains of TN. I must say it has worked for us. Still in love. I highly recommend this site. Never know until you take a chance. When my friends see me without him it's like where's Carey. It was a hit with us! 2016 and we are happier than ever!

    Just because you are in love with someone doesn't mean you will be able to live with each other. If you find that you can't, then maybe that is something that you need to work on. I wouldn't give up, because when you love someone and you are passionate about them, then you just don't give up. I don't know if trying to start love online is the best way to go, especially if someone is in another country. I at least couldn't see myself getting involved with someone in another country. But I' not one to give up when I love someone.

    Ria ; Thank you for the opportunity for Me to Find Commenting on Blog Topics as a Hobby . I will continue to be Polite to all others - when they show the same Quality of Life to Me . At 60 years of age have been called out Repeatedly by one of those of a self proclaimed professionalism of a Lawyer who thinks he is a Doctor of PSYCHIATRY . Goes to show that once one goes to school / They Assume that they know it all . Another who has given Me permission to speak my mind on Blogs only if done her way . And lastly two or more who openly insult people repeatedly on the same Blog . Found it is True that Birds of a Feather Flock Together . My Credentials in Life are Chauffeur / Commercial Operator of a Big Rig and I have Litterally looked down on these people as I drove my whole Life . They feel free to Judge me and throw Petty insults on occasion . Alas I have learned what my true calling in Retirement is / To Enjoy my wife who I met on this site and to read opinions of people who write on Topics .

    Now why'd I think I might not get a negative reaction just because I put court tv out there? I mentioned, that's not the only thing I was doing at the time but really don't have to account for my time to you, Homesteader. I spend more time in the real world than you do. Homesteader, I do believe that they're not actors and I don't need your advice on what to do. You are free to believe what you want to and so am I. It's a free country. Just like you are free to post endless ramblings that make no sense most of which I usually skip over. I gave you credit for one. Maybe YOU should stop your endless countless blogging and go out into the real world.

    My Aunt died smoking Newport cigarettes in the 60's because of their special micronite filter . Take a filter cut it lengthwise , hold it up to a bright light and tear it open / watch the dust particles fall out in the air . Think when you inhale , these particles enter your lungs .

    Yes , I have a bad Heart / aka Massive Heart attack [ 12/28/00 ] - the one muscle that never heals . Due to my own terrible eating habits when I lived alone . All my yearly testing shows improvement over last years tests . Have not Smoked a cigarette since that day when my chest burned so Badly beside the road lighting a Camel . X-rays this past week showed clean lungs and I had smoked non-filter cigarettes for 30 years plus - prior to that . Believe ; that Our active Life of make King Love , has improved My HAPPINESS and Heart functionalism . Belief definds Reality .

    We Believe that ours is a Magnificently Marvelous Adult Partnership / To live in the same Household 24/7 and when we Dine out sitting next to each other , shop for grocery items together and watch movies with each other sounds like Jealousy on your part that Our Brain tissue could allow us to laugh in Doctors office waiting rooms / thereby getting all other patients involved in Our Happiness . We met here two years ago and will soon enough celebrate Our Second Wedding Anniversary . Being older I fail to understand - Imho - Court T.V. is a bunch of underpaid self taught poor actors trying to impress people with their ignorance . I actually have had the aquiantance of Persons who attended College for the Education needed in 4 year courses in becoming Actors and Actresses , with Degrees earned with Credit hours . My advice would be to Shut off the Television set and go out into the real world . We May enjoy a Splendid tine making Love . We are LEGALLY MARRIED and that is our Right to Happiness .

    If I have a holiday off from work and if I happen to be listening to one of those court tv programs while I'm doing something at home, it amazes me how many women I see who have left their jobs, families, homes and friends to move clear across the country to live with or marry a man they've, mind you (only emailed with or spoken with on the phone) for a few months or a year. Imho,In no way can you get a real feel/take on a person in that situation. In court the woman saids, "Judge I met him online and.." The Judge saids, "Let me guess, you packed up, left your home and job and moved clear across the country. Now you have nowhere to go back to and you want him to pay up, do I have that right?" This is why many end up in court. I want to echo and agree with Girlsixdiva, VA_Songbird, Beautynbooty and Homesteader. Imho, if you want to go for a good relationship, take the blinders off, get real and think with the brain not the gonads.

    I definitely can't speak from experience, since I have yet to meet and marry someone online. But, once you get through the superficial aspect of dating you should have some sense of the individual's habits before you marry them, unless this is an arranged marriage. I think both Homesteader and beautynbooty stated it clearly which is "Get of the fantasy realm... Don't believe the Rosy picture some online daters paint"... It leads to heartbreak and deceit. Be smart and sensible about dating and take your time and get to know the person, to avoid another divorce or broken relationship.

    Grown up people can wait till after Marriage to make Love . Most of us looking here already have tried Sex , I heard that they even teach it in school now . When I went to school we were taught Respect for a Ladies feelings , has this changed also . What' s so great about Bump n' Roll ? Without Commitment . Unless the only reason - You [ generally speaking ] - joined this site was for sex .

    The reason the grass looks Greener on the other side of a fence , is because of the Shadows created by the fence itself . We all have Fantasy , Belief helps to create Reality . A long term relationship takes 100 % work on both partners . Alas it will Happen if you Both Try . It can become the Greatest moment of your Lives , But it does take two Serious people . Excuses are like Flowers they grow everywhere in the Wild .

    i think that everyone left some great comments but girlsix(sixboo)you hit it right on. sex seems to be the most important thing in a long distance/internet relationship. a lot of the men and women that are on the net searching for love tend to settle out of loneliness and desperation. they fall in love with a fantasy and a image of how that person should act or be. anyone can be anything behind a screen and on a phone,and that is what a lot of us fall for.then we make plans to meet and jump into bed with this person, all the while not really knowing who this person is.some relationships dont even make it past the first meeting,turning it into a weekend booty fest/call. some take it to the next step which is someone moving in or marriage. alot of these relationships dont work out because people dont really take the time to get to know one another. after a few weeks of phone and net talkin, people are declaring they are in love. PLEASE! what you are in love with is a fantasy and the feeling.how can you be in love with someone that you really dont know? we all have heard the stories of people posting pics that are not them or when they were younger and then when they meet, they are disappointed. can you really love someone that has lied to you from the start? what else has this perosn lied about? not to mention the instant families that are thrown together. alot of people dont have any kids or the kids are not with them, so to have kids in the house is a big change for some. we have all heard stories where the kids played a big part in the realtionship going sour. people need to learn the difference between being lonely and being alone.take the time to love yourself first and know what you want and to expect out of a long distance realtionship . learn what you will and wont settle for. be wary of the man or female that just wants to talk about sex. ask the person what their intentions are and what are they looking for. above all trust your instincts, they never lie. if you feel as if something isnt right,then 9 out of 10 times it isnt. my grandma always told me..THE GRASS ISNT GREENER ON THE OTHER SIDE, ITS JUST AS FULL OF BULLSHIT LIKE THE SIDE YOUR ON NOW, JUST HIDDEN BETTER. any relationship is hard to maintain, especially long distance. you need lots of communication and dedication from both persons involved. if one person is not honest and not in it for love, then it wont work and heartbreak will ensure. forgive me if i am rambling, its late.. just a thought from the peanut gallery greianna

    I think everyone is correct as it has been told the phone and internet/chat thing is great to some, hell tomany but when one wants to meet and the other just wants to be phone and chat buddies then that is where the problem begins. So many come on here with expectations and just leave broken hearted, even though we will never stop hoping to meet the person of our dreams but as fala said the person for the moment.

    That's sad but true Maj. People need to start spending lots of time IN PERSON instead of falling in love with the picture that is painted on the internet and phone lines, and also stop falling in love with dick or pussy. It can happen with couples that meet outside of the internet too but you have more control when you are meeting someone from the internet.

    I found my lifelong companion here and all it took was 4 years , many disappointments . I came seriously looking as my life is important to me , and she was serious also . To the ones that are looking for a sugar daddy , may your journey be filled with deceit , cause we reap that which we sow .

    I remember when the first gulf war broke out and there were couple getting married over the phone now more than anything people are seeking web dating by having faith and the hope that they will meet the right person for them distance should not be a factor where love is concern.

    to answer your question...NO.. nothing is written in stone if you live next door or worlds away. i personally know a couple that has gone as far as keep the relationship going via internet/phone/IM's. Met and fell even more in love. got married, she came to the U.S. sacrificing family and friends to be with him. they had a baby and he cheated. that was the end of the relationship. now she is back in her country and he compromised her strength and her faith in the... ''anything is possible'' realm. this has happened more than once.
