Thread Name: BS: Cyber Relationships. are there a lot?
Subject: RE: BS: Cyber Relationships. are there a lot?
Can't tell you about failures, Dave - I met my husband on line in January 2001 and we've been happily in love ever since. Married in 2004. He was then in Cardiff and I was in London and I'm happy to say I came back to Wales to make life easier. Not regretted any of it for an instant.
I was meeting loads of people superficially in loads of places, from performing contexts to teaching, but it's hard to form relationships when you're constantly on the move. We're both fairly shy people despite being performers, and meeting on line meant we were able to be honest about what we wanted and were looking for, and weren't distracted by physical appearances, alcohol or peer pressure!
The chatroom where we met had a good track record of other couples linking up. At the time we met there were at least another dozen couples (some transatlantic) who had made a permanent relationship after meeting there.
