She did, but it was in ASCII.

Dread Pirate Slasher: She did, but it was in ASCII.

Actually by that point, they could probably send poorly-done ANSI art to one another.

Wow, I wonder if that will ever happen again.

There are 2 types of women on online dating sites: Ugly runts and attractive bi-polar psychos.
 
2008-05-18 07:30:08 PM
Awww, they're so cute!
 
2008-05-18 07:31:28 PM
That's sweet. So many folks don't make 25 years regardless of where they met.

We still have our dot matrix love letter printouts from a 1991 VAX server.

I'm in love with a girl I met on the internet, so I'm really getting a kick out of these replies.

Bwahaha! It's still funny to me, dammit!


What a sweet story - I hope they spend the rest of their years together.

My hubby and I met on the Internet. We celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary earlier this month.

I thought it was going to be the couple that created Cisco while at Stanford.

/ she went on to create Urban Decay cosmetics

19 years for the Mrs. and me in June.

How many farkers here grew up without the internet when they were kids? My son is 12 and he has always had access to the net and a computer. He once asked me what games I played on the net when I was his age. I told him there was no internet when I was a kid. He gave me that look that said, Dad is trying to pull one over on me. I still don't think he believes it is a modern invention and these kids are the first to grow up in the internet age.

Any woman you meet on the internet is a WHORE!!!!
 
2008-05-18 07:40:20 PM
It's not so uncommon anymore. I met my girlfriend online (new window) before I went to Iraq and we started dating the second I got off the plane. We're getting married not far in the future.
 
2008-05-18 07:40:36 PM
Hubby and I met in 1996 on the internets. Been together all that time, just got married in Dec 07. We opted for a long test drive.

I remember how weird people thought it was then and how people treated us. Can't imagine what these poor people went through in '82.

I met my wife in 1997 online. It was kinda taboo then. 1982 musta been nuts.

I stalk girls on the internet that I'm in love with, and then go "bump into them at random" in person after finding out where they live, so I'm getting a kick out of these replies

Would it be nuts, or "Huh" though? The stigma really wouldn't exist...

Today the couple lives on the North Side, where they care for their three cats and Bichon Frise and enjoy occasional nights out at the Fondue Stube on Peterson Avenue.

Sounds to me like she's his beard.

Good for them! I've met a couple of nice guys online (I'm currently dating one). My mother was certain that I was going to be raped and/or murdered but really I find the whole experience easier and less skeezy than hanging out in some bar or begging my friends for a meeting with the friends THEY wouldn't date. You just have to be smart and safe about it.
 
2008-05-18 07:52:25 PM
The wife and I met in person in November 1994 and married in February 1996. We met online sometime in the end of summer of 1994 back when "chat" was a relatively new phenomenon on the AOL's and Prodigy's of the world - and rather expensive: As it became more popular they charged about $4 (I think) per hour for chat sessions. The mrs and I ended up with like $300 per month Prodigy/AOL bills.

My wife and I met online, well before the Internet. We were both users of the same timesharing system (Wylbur, running on an IBM370) back in 1975. We got married in 1977, and we'll be married 31 years in September.

/Take THAT 25 year anniversary newbs

Sometimes I get impatient when a page won't load in 2 seconds with a cable modem. How fast we forget.

28.8 Rules.

What is this "popup" thing of which you speak?

I was looking for Spinstopper and 8floz to make an appearance here... since they're Fark's first (and best) married couple >:)
 
2008-05-18 08:02:40 PM
So, what will the next 25 years bring to us?

Unbelievable, currently undreamed of, new means of advertising crap to you.
