    Hello BOC family.....I have heard quite a few folks make mention of the fact that they met online. If you don't mind sharing your story, please post here. It seems that internet romance is all the rage these days, and I've been wondering how many members of the BOC met in this manner. Thanks for your participation. :smile2:

    My wife Vanessa and I met online.

    I had been on IRC for quite a while without running into another Tulsan in the country music channels. She popped in and a messaged her. She and her kids were living with a friend and her husband. The 4 of us decided to hook up one night for cards and a movie.

    Well, that was the end of that!

    I used to be a truckdriver. And working nights then spending weekends fishing and resting up for another week on the road didnt do much for my social life. So I decided to start posting Ads on some of the free places like Love@AOL and Yahoo.com . I figured at least it would be entertaining:wink:
    Well, I dated several had some good and some bad experiences but ended up getting married to a woman and 3 kids..or should I say, was "purchsed" to care for 3 kids!! LOL nedless to say...BAD DEAL FOR ME!!! married 1 1/2 yrs and divorced. Got lucky and managed to keep my house and no child support *whew! So, what did I do? well....... I got tired of bars and friends of friends that were worse than what I left.. so I decided to do the internet thing one more time.... I had some fun but was reluctant to commit and then I saw her ad... I just knew we would click and I had to go for it... I was 36 she was 33, we are now 40 and 37..
    I know we have a soul mate, I know some will never meet theirs, but as the song said on our wedding day.. "God bless the broken road that led me straight to you" !!!
    She knows all my faults and loves me anyway.. It was worth the wait.. :wink:

    Well......I suppose it COULD have something to do with catfishing, especially if the couple who met online are BOC members. Now China, and tea......probably not, unless you were conversing with someone across the globe. And, as far as I know, Tea and Mandy didn't meet online. :big_smile:
    Maybe we need a poll, "How many threads in General Conversation have to do with catfishing and Chinese tea?" Hmmm.....I believe YOU, DH, are the one who has tested positive for grumpiness. :crazy:

    Oh really, BG? I think you already have :eek:oooh:.

    :smile2: :big_smile: :lol: Awww, you guys look so happy together, thanks for sharing. Gives new meaning to the word "threesome". :confused2:

    We met in 92 at an ol fashioned dairy bar. Funny how it seems like just yesterday...... We just got a roll of film developed that was in our camera from 4yrs back. It was totally forgotten about since we had changed over to a digital camera.

    They not only didn't have "online" back then, they didn't even have "inline", skates, that is. (I met my wife at a skating rink) I was 16 and she was 14. We got married a year and a half later. 34 years and counting!

    I never really had a girlfriend in school or after until I was thirty one years old. I got a computer that year and I was looking all over the net at everything. I found a site for men that are overweight and the women that admire them. I felt very at home there and was in that group for a few days when one night, September 29 2003, I got an instant message from a young lady saying she had seen my picture on the BHM, Big Handsome Men, site and she wanted to say hi and welcome me to the group properly. We talked from ten thirty that night until five o’clock the next morning. We have been together ever since.
    She was married and living up here with her husband when we met.
    She filed for the divorce and got it soon after. A few days later she moved down to Mississippi with me and we set up house there.
