I did the online dating because I was not going to find the man of my dreams in a bar. We lived 40 minutes away from each other so in the beginning it was very nice that we had that distance made for some long telephone conversations and we did get to know each other very well. As time went on we moved in together (after a year and half dating) and just were married this past July 15. It can happen you just have to be honest. Good luck!
