How did you meet your significant other?
I was a single mother of two, had two failed relationships and had resigned myself to never getting involved with another man ever again. I swore I was just going to be happy being single, being the best mother to my two children that I could be. No man was going to be in my life ever again!
Then I joined Facebook in the autumn of 2007. I found a few friends I knew, added them and was playing around with some of the different applications on there. I came across a request to play one called Human Pets. Sounded like fun so I started playing it. In the game you could buy and sell your friends (sounds weird huh?) and you could also be owned by another person. All in the virtual sense and I was quite enjoying playing the game when I started chatting to a guy on there with a V for Vendetta mask. I couldn't even see what he looked like as his profile didn't show anything on photos other than the mask! We got on really well and decided to add each other and discovered we had a lot in common. There was just something between us, even before we spoke to one another on the phone for the first time, and by the time we met up in real life, approximately 6 weeks after we started talking to each other online, the attraction between us was amazing. He lived on the other side of the country and we could only see each other at weekends due to his job, but we soon knew that we couldn't be apart... so after 2 months, he moved here to be with me. I can honestly say, for all the concerns I had about meeting someone online, all of them were unfounded. We clicked. We were inseparable and it has remained that way for the past 7 years. We now have a 5 year old son together and have been very happily married for 2 and a half years. He is a wonderful stepfather to my other two children and I love him very much :)
