I’ve recently seen alot of things about internet dating and how bad it has become. It really saddens me that this has happened as this is the way I met my husband. My mum had met her partner months before I even decided to give it a go. I did think it was for older people, desperate people and fake people. I decided to give it a go anyway. I put my profile up and waited. For a year I had my profile on Oasisactive. I met only 2 guys in person, but soon realised they were both friends with friends and there was no connection for us but a good friendship. Other people only wanted one thing, which was somewhat annoying and not what I was after. I decided that it was not working and starting sending messages to the people that I had met online, letting them know that I was deleting my profile. As i was going through my friends, i received a request. I took a look at the profile and he wasnt someone who i would normally go for but i thought that could be my problem. I added him and we talked online for 4 months before we met in person. We met at a beer garden with friends and instantly we connected and from that day we were inseparable. We are now married with 3 children and Ive never been happier. I look at him sometimes and still think what if i deleted my profile, i would never of met him. I really believe he is the one for me. The connection we have is almost unbelievable!

If this is something you have considered doing, make sure you talk online for a while and when you met, met in a public place. trust your gut and always be safe x

  • This is a lovely story. I’ve always thought I’d stay single if I lost my husband, because dating sounds so ghastly.

  • It certainly is horrible the way that it is these days. Not being able to really trust anything or anyone… I, too, met my partner online on POF. We spoke for about a month online before exchanging mobile numbers, and from that first initial message (from him), we met about 3-4 months afterwards at the beach as a play date with our kids. We aren’t married yet, but we have 3 beautiful kids together, as well as my son. His son isn’t in our lives at the moment, but hopefully someday he will be! Oh, and we have been together now for 5+ years =)

  • i think that there is a lot of tro;;ong being done these day, and in an age where we have been allowed to do what ever we want and pretend to be who ever we want, its catching up in some places

  • Another thing is there’s nothing wrong with online dating. Yes there’s flaws but it’s the same in real life don’t you think? In the end is all about the person and if you’re in love or found your perfect partner, it could be as simple as love at first sight, meeting in the pub or online dating.
    Congrats!

  • Glad it worked out for you! I don’t see the problem with online dating since you still need to see the person in real life and decide anyways :)
