Any luck online?

HannahPanda HannahPanda
Have any of you Edenites ever had a successful, on going online relationship? I've met nearly all of my partners online, one of which was an eight year relationship, and another going on 8 months. I live in a really small town, so contact with people who understood my love for strange books and novelties was scarce and like most, I turned to the internet and had luck with it!

I realize not everyone is so lucky and probably have had some awful experiences online, which leads to my curiosity: Just how many people have had successes with online relationships/hook ups? Whether it's just been sex for you or a long term relationship, have you had something meaningful with someone you've met online?

I've never had a lasting relationship based on anything online, but I've had some really fun dates, made friends, and have never had an outright negative experience. It turns out the 'type' of guy I like just isn't the computer type so my odds aren't great there.

I've never tried it but I have 2 friends that are crazy about it. One of my friends is a very casual hookup only kind of guy and he has a lot of success. My other friend isn't into going to bars or parties to pick girls up, and in general is socially awkward around women in public. His first relationship that lasted 2 years was with someone he met off a dating site. He's currently single but goes on dates about twice a month with someone he meets online.

I also had a girlfriend that used to use a dating site before we met. From what she told me her in box was full every day with tons of messages, generally from older men, asking her out. A lot of them contained some gross stuff like pictures of their penises. But for the most part she said it was an ego booster knowing that she was wanted.

I met my ex-husband online (movie fan site) long before dating sites were created. Married ten years. Problem is that we married the wrong person and had no idea what the other was really like in their day-to-day life (by the time I had an idea, the wedding planning was underway and money was invested in it and I didn't have enough sense of self to say "I don't want to marry you").

Tried it again on a real dating site and ended up with a one night stand by accident (he didn't tell me it was just a one night stand - he dumped me after five days of silence and a defriending on Facebook).

Met Master at another dating site and have hit it off really well, although it seems we're measuring the time between dates in 'years' (we live in different countries). At least I'm not rushing into marriage with another stranger again.

Hit or miss. Just remember people can say anything you want to hear when they can edit their stories.

I met my ex boyfriend online. That lasted for a few years.

You can meet great people online, though.

Well congrats to you! Sounds amazing

I have not ever dated online. I too live in a tiny town and assumed I'd never find someone who understood me in this place. Strangely enough he happened to be living only 2 minutes away my entire life! Lol. We both live on the mountain, always have. We got together 5 years ago. If it weren't for him though, I doubt I would've dated anyone from here. Very different from what I like. Lol

To Ms. Altoxin: You are 19 years of age and have already had an 8 year relationship, which I am guessing was of a sexual nature. I hope you take a step back and think about that for a few moments and decide where to focus your life now.
