Before you got involved in this relationship, what did you think of online love? I had met my previous boyfriend online. That wasn't a good experience for me (not meeting him online but the overall relationship), but it didn't sway my opinion on meeting people online. I would've prefered not to, but it just happened that way.
Are you in love? If so, when do you think it happened? Very much so. It was mid-July or so, when I first kissed him, that I realized I loved him. And it was in early August that he told me that he loved me, and I told him that I loved him also.
What are some of your hobbies? Writing, singing, video games, crafting, shopping (lol).
What are some of your significant other's hobbies? Drawing, writing, video games.
What kinds of things do you both have in common/like to do together? We both love video games and writing and walking and sitting random places and talking for hours about nothing.
Give a brief summary of how you met (if it's long, put it under an lj-cut):
The previously mentioned ex-boyfriend had broken up with me after living in my house, and taking advantage of my family and me, for nine months, and I was (too put it lightly) really pissed off. I wanted nothing more than to hurt something, or someone, because that's just how I used to be. So, I went onto match.com to find some guys to lead on, and to drop. I know that sounds horrible, and I feel bad for it. There was this one profile that kept popping up, and it gave me such a good feeling that I just kept avoiding it. I wanted nothing to do with this guy, because I knew I'd end up liking him and I didn't want to like anybody. I wanted to flirt and use people and basically be a bitch. This guy scared the hell out of me, and I danced around the idea of contacting him for several days before I actually just went for it and contacted him. A couple days later, he got back to me and we started talking. After a day of talking to him online, I had already developed some sort of online crush on him. And he apparently had one on me also, and as the days went by, it only got "worse" for both of us. After about a week, we decided to finally talk on the phone, and I was worried about that. Because it would figure, I finally meet a nice guy and he sounds like some distorted chipmunk or something. But no. He sounded beautiful, and I would've listened to him talk for hours if he hadn't been so shy and made me do all the talking, lol. Several days later, we decided to meet in person because even though I was fine with meeting him online, I did not want to get to know someone online again. I wanted to get to know him primarily in person before I got too attached to the online him. So, we arranged to meet, and it went too smoothly for our own good. It was amazing, and we've been together ever since then. Of course we've progressed a lot since then, lol. We went on vacation to FL a couple weeks ago, have exchanged "I love you"s, have decided we're getting married, etc.
Well, that's about it. :)
