Hi everyone :o) I just wanted to share what's been going on :o) I've been lurking for a bit but I just wanted to let you know what has been going on w/me and Jeremy (the guy I met online)...WELL, this past weekend he came over to see me again and he met my parents so clearly things are going in a very good direction. My parents absolutely adored him so that makes things so much better. I was terrified to actually say 'Mom, dad I met someone online and I want you to meet him' but they took it all surprisingly well! They both asked quite a few questions but nothing I wasn't prepared for. I do wish that I had shared w/them earlier since I did let things go for a bit before they met and before i even shared anythign w/them about it but to be honest, I wanted to make sure there was something serious there before I got them involved. The whole idea of meeting online is something that is looked down on by a lot of people and I didn't really want to have to deal w/all that stress if it wasn't w/someone I loved. That's right, I'm in love! And to be completely honest, he bought me a ring..so we are pre-engaged. We are keeping that kinda on the down low just b/c he did just meet my parents and we haven't been together that long... Long enough for both of us to realize that this is a real thing we have... Next week I'm heading over to see him and I am meeting his parents. I'm nervous but I know that I have to be myself and I'm sure everything will go well! Jeremy loves me so that's really all that matters, right :o) Well, I just wanted to share w/everyone how happy I am! I am still really in shock that I met someone online who I connected w/in such an amazing way offline! It can really happen ladies (and men) :o)

First of all Heartiest congratulations to you!!.....It feels good to know that you found someone and it ended so happily for you and him...I always believed in this kind of dating but seen very few successful cases.

All the best on your trip to meet his parents and let us know how that goes:)

Congrats again!

Congrats Amanda!!

I'm sooooo happy for you, especially since it always seems to me that somehow or another we're usually going through just about the same things at the same time! LOL

Wishing you all my best,
