The best things in life are found in unexpected places and in the case of love, it can be found online. Dating online is still a bizarre arrangement for some people because they dont understand how sparks can fly in a place where people cant see each other. But reality will tell you that it can happen because it has already happened.
Steve* still finds himself smiling every time he recalls the story of how he met his girlfriend of 2 year and 4 months. He did not meet Tracy in a dating website or any of those cheating wives websites out there. They met each other in a forum for architects and architecture students 7 years ago. Tracy was about to take her licensure exam back then while Steve had just started working as a partner in a firm. Steve did not go into details of his first conversation with Tracy in the forum because it was all about architecture jargon. What he revealed was he got her messenger ID because Tracy had questions that needed lengthy answers. For the first four years of their online friendship, their exchanges were very casual but limited to 30 minutes of conversation.
It gave them enough time to know of each others interests and dislikes but since it wasnt their intention to find a date in each other, so they simply enjoyed whatever it was they were talking about and nothing more. He talked about his interest in the philosophy of history, and she talked about her interest in hair designing and wholesale jewelry. They would talk to each other about every 2 months, when they werent so busy with their lives. Each time they would talk, they would update each other about the changes that had taken place in their lives. It was a bit weird when he pulled out his trippy stick, but as long as it’s done in a healthy manner, it’s not so bad. You won’t always get a date that’s coming fresh from OneSource Modeling, but hopefully you’ll get someone decently attractive!
