Online dating marriage for fun
Over the years, any stigma of saying, “we met online” has evaporated. Valentine’s Day is coming up fast, and it has us in a romantic kind of mood, so we spoke to five awesome couples who met each other online and got hitched (or are engaged to get hitched) IRL. Dana: “My now-husband Darren and I met on Tumblr in March 2011 and have been married since September 2013.
” Brendan: “We’ve been together six years and had gone on countless online dates before we met each other.I’ve made a lot of really good friends from different sites on the Internet, going back to my high school and college days.It’s something that I used to be really embarrassed to admit to people, because meeting people on the Internet seems like a weird, scary thing to a lot of people!We’d been following each other for a while, and had chatted on Tumblr before because we had a lot of similar interests — mostly obscure horror movies, which really brought us together.I was living in Brooklyn at the time, and Darren was in Oakland, but he had friends who lived in NY, so when he was coming to visit them, he told me he would be in town, and asked if I’d like to meet up!
