I remember hearing not too long ago that almost 1 in four couples met on the internet (don't quote me on that). Since then I've met quite a few people who say they or someone they know has started a somewhat serious relationship with someone they met online.
So I'm curious, have any of you met someone special online? Or maybe started a friendship? Or even a fling?

It seems that more and more people are turning to the Internet for love lately. I've never tried it but I know a couple people who have. I actually went to a wedding last summer of a couple that met on the Internet (he's from Italy, she's Canadian) and they are really happy together. It's neat to think that they would never have met if it wasn't for the Internet.

One of my bff met her husband online. She's from Canada, he's from Texas. They were just chatting randomly on one of those generic chatting sites and clicked. Long story short, they're happily married, have two beautiful babies together and another one on the way. Whenever I used to feel down, I would call her just to talk to her, because she is SO HAPPY with her life, just hearing the happiness and contentment in her voice would lift my spirits and make me feel better.
My husband and I didn't technically meet online / phone, but we got to know e/other much better because of it, so not sure if that counts :-)
It is pretty mind boggling to think that so many people would not have found the happiness and love they have today if not for cyberspace.

I have a few friends now who met their boyfriends/husbands on dating sites. I just met someone else who met their girlfriend ... wait for it... on facebook! I love hearing the "how we met stories"
