I met someone on the site. We chatted for a week or two, then we talked on the phone for a week. We met at a point halfway between our homes (we live about 600 miles apart and in different countries). Wayyyy too soon to think about marriage! But we are planning to see each other again shortly, and as often as possible. I have no tips, except to say that chat really made the difference for me. He isn't a chatter, but he did sign in to the room and I saw him. I will miss that part because I did make friends there.
