  • OMG I Swore it would NEVER happen to me...

    Well gang, as you know I quietly sit and mind my own business in chat (uh huh). About a year and a half ago I talked with a gentleman from RI. No big deal...we all talk...gab...shoot the you know what. A couple months later he reappears and he says, "you're the nurse from MA, right?" I honestly did not even remember him but I agreed I was and we chatted on line all night.

    To make a long story short...our first date was Valentine's Day. We got engaged last night.
    I SWORE I would not be one of those 'weirdos' that met someone on line. When we tell people how we met, we find so many other folks have met that way I am beginning to not so weird.

    So two more Officer.Com folks are getting together. Watch can happen to you.

      So, whens the big day? I think yours will be the first wedding!

      Oh, and you aren't weird at all! There's a couple at work... he moved from the UK to marry her after they met online.

          i dont think it's weird, i know at least three other couples that met on-line and married. and lots more who date. it opens your horizons to different kinds of people all over the country (and the world), right from your home; sounds like a good way to meet someone to me. Good luck with everything.

              Good for you, Shannon!

              I also met my wife online. A friend of ours also met her fiancee online. Sometimes it works out great!

                nice going Shannon - glad it worked out for you

                anybody seen this new DATING CHANNEL on cable TV ? It started a couple of months back and is amazing ! A girl or boy comes on camera for 5 minutes.... telling their life story and it is pretty entertaining stuff, even if you have no interest in getting a date, it's a real laugh !! (better than QVC anyway !!)

                  When will the big day be???

                    It seems to me that because of the anonymous nature of the internet, most people are more honest with somebody and have a better chance of meeting somebody who they are truly compatible with. It can't be worse than hooking up in a bar.

                    just a thought...
