    I was going to ask you if he typed with an Irish accent but then you said you communicate on Skype, so you've seen and heard him!
    I dated a few fellows that I met online when it was "avant guard" - my friends thought I was CRAZY - but I was always careful to meet in a public place. Had a few nice dates but no sparks that lasted.
    Now - I marry people as a profession and many of the couples have met online.

    Hope you have fun! Good luck!
    Here's to all you great SC'ers

    Oh yes we both know what each other looks and sounds like. We started off chatting through text back and forth for awhile before we started talking over skype and video chatting. And thanks!! I think quite a number of people have thought I was nuts already but come on! In this day and age, meeting online is certainly not unheard of!

    I met my hubby on a xvi forum - rave Ottawa site - invited him up for wine and the best thing ever. My bff met a guy via Plenty of Fish - and how she is engaged and living with him - she is so happy and he is amazing. You can find love via the internet
    Good Luck!!

    Simular situation. I travel often mostly to states. NO time to meet women and when I do, they dislike my work schedule. Never met someone online in person, I'm afraid they won't be as carefree and fun in real life. I'm so lucky to be an un-nagged male. GOod luck!

    I met my DH in 1999, we got married in 2003, had DS in 2006. I often say we were pioneers of online dating, met in the late 1900s!

    Back then you didn't even have to have a photo on your profile. When we met for the first time in person, we were meeting at a coffee shop and really all I had was a physical description. And I knew he was tall. How do you find the tall guy in the coffee shop when everyone is sitting down? I remember seeing a 40-something guy with a ponytail who was kind of smiling at me and thinking, "Please don't let that be him," (understand that I was 20-something at the time and 40-something was a bit out of my range!). Fortunately it was NOT him, and he eventually stood up so I found him.

    I tried okcupid and plenty of fish and had no luck.

    Most girls simply ignore my messages. The few who do respond to my initial message start ignoring me once I ask them on a date. The ratio of men to women is too high so most women get inundated with messages from guys and end up ignoring most guys.

    Maybe I'll give it another shot...

    That's awesome and cute story! I would have reacted the same way to the strange smiling pony tail man haha

    I met mine on a forum so I wasn't really looking. I never tried a dating site. Maybe just join forums that meet your interest and you will come across someone just like you
