  • I love these stories where us readers get to know you a little better. Some of us (hehe, me) jumped in to reading your blogs not too long ago and we missed out on a lot. Great story, who would have ever thought that the phrase “browneye” could bring two people together? ; )

    Chat room in Powwow back in 1997. I came into the room and threw myself into a friends lap, screamed for a marguerita and 4fthawaiian started flicking grapes at me.

    It was love at first flick! LOL

    I met my man online too, but through an MMORPG.

    Also, I agree with Lou…big debt of gratitude.

    I met my hubby at my church where we had a lot of mutual friends. We were best friends for a long time, and did stuff like paint ball fights, and water gun fights and campfires. Eventually we got together, and that was 13 years ago.

    My husband was my boss at a goofy video store I worked at when I was a sophomore in college. He didn’t even want to hire me, but the assistant manager had already given me the job. He had some cute blond he wanted to hire. I showed him. 😛

    Holy crap…!!!

    I met my hubby..in a chat room…with use of a bot…LOL

    He had just arrived in Iraq and I was lonely…lol…One night in a Vermont chat room, I saw this one poor fool trying to chat to bots…It was a really really lame one too… It was however, a very provocative bot who had a way with words….After watching him for a while, I private messaged him and said “Hey dumb ass…that’s a bot you know…its not real…it’s fake you putz!” He responded with “Damn….but they say all the right things!”

    Three years later, here we are…buying a new lawn mower and eating cold pizza…ah, romance…LOL

    April 29, 2008
  • Hmm! There are several parallels between your story and mine. School drama (I quit), boyfriend drama (he was a drunken loser), met a nice guy who lived out of state via an early form of the internets (intranet, really), we became good friends and chatted daily, then I met him in person and it was happily ever after. Sorta. Lots of other stuff happened, but that’s the essence. LOL
    You can read it here, if you wanna:
    and here is the next part:

    My family and friends were all dubious about me hooking up with a man I met on the computer. LOL And look at us now. We’ve been a couple since 1985.

    That is awesomely cool. I too was once addicted to chat rooms, so much so that I became a host/moderator of a certain room and was paid by AOL for doing it. In hours ROFL. Because that was when you had to pay by the minute to chat, and I was always over my minutes.
