My only wish is that there were more sites for friendship and not just relationships.
Natalie Buxbaum, Sydney, Australia I met my wife on the net in 2001 while I was living in England, we are still married and still very happy.
I think I will stick with more traditional methods of meeting people in future.
If you meet someone through friends, you automatically get a background check on that person!
I almost gave up looking, but have recently met a lovely guy that I share a lot in common with.

I think that online couples have a good chance of making it, as long as neither party misrepresents themselves. I'm happy that I let myself get into something less than traditional, otherwise I would have missed out on this great love.
