Presque Isle, ME
I'm in the group that certainly hopes they work, as I have found a soulmate online, too, although I did not meet him at Passions. (He is a poet, though. ) I have a sister who met her second husband online. They have been together for a number of years now, and have two sons. In fact, I think it is easier to find someone online, as you don't have things like outward appearances and initial shyness getting in the way so easily. It's much easier to be relaxed and get to know what's going on inside the other person, at least for me. And I hear of more and more relationships that started this way that do work, resulting in happy marriages between people who would never have heard of each other before they had this way of connecting! It's always interesting to hear arguments about how you can't really get to know someone online. I knew my former husband extremely well before we got married, had dated for three years, been engaged for 19 months, and it wasn't until we were married for more than 20 years that I got the crucial piece of information that made continuing the marriage impossible. I say if you find love, online or anywhere else, go for it!
To love another person is to see the face of God.
