Do you know anyone who has successfully dated an online person and got married?

My mother seems lonely and I wanted to set her up with an online person, but I am afraid that the people that are on these dating websites are crazy crooks!

Do you know anyone who has successfully dated an online person and got married?

  • I met my husband on a social networking site similar to myspace...we talked on there for a couple of weeks before I gave him my phone number, then we talked on the phone for about 2 months before we met in person...we started dating almost immediatly after that...6 months later we moved in together and we will be celebrating our 1 yr wedding anniversary on the 17th of this month. We've been together 3 years =) We've had our ups and downs just like everyone else but I feel very lucky to have met him...even if it wasnt in the traditional way <3

  • I met my husband when I was in college. We talked online on and off for about 5 years. A couple phone calls only because he was in the Philippines. We were not in a serious relationship during that time. Still, when he came to the US he called me and we talked about meeting in person. He admits he handled things very poorly during that time. We finally met in person after lots of daily phone calls. I was a nervous wreck! My mom's cousin tried to meet someone she met online and was murdered! So have to be VERY VERY careful!!! I was lucky. We got married over 9 years ago. I also know of 3 others friends who met their husbands online through various dating sites.

  • I met my husband on match and we have been married 5.5 years now. Before that I dated some very nice men who were nice but just not the one. You can weed out the crazies and the guys that have been on there a long time are probably players. I always met the guys for the first date in a very public place and did not give out my address until I knew them better.
