    After two long marriages, 10 and 11 years, I was over fairy tales. After about a year of second divorce, a friend and I went on Match.com I went out with three guys, one better than the other, but in the end they had issues I was not willing to overlook. I was done playing mother. I was so over it. Then one business trip to Maui, this person I admired from afar, and I assumed married, kinda sent me a really nice email but I ignored it. Six months later, I ran into him at another meeting in Virginia. We got talking and he said "I'd love to get to know you better." I kind of freaked out, and said I needed to find my group. Two days later, I had not seen him at any of the meetings and couldn't stop thinking about him. I left him a message at his hotel room, to see if he wanted to have a friendly drink. We kept missing each other the five days we were there. I saw him on my way to the airport, and I felt my knees buckle. Six years later tells me he will never forget seeing me walking down the stairs and his heart raising.

    He lived in Texas and I in California, he was also much older than I thought, I was thinking 10 older, but he is actually 20 years older than me. At first I was not sure because of age difference, and it scared me. He'd fly every month to see me for a weekend and each one I felt more deeply in love him. We had a two year long distance relationship, then I moved to Texas. We are back to a long distance relationship, but we are very much in love and more committed to each other than ever.

    Turned out fairly tales romances do exist.

    What a lovely story!! I wish you lots of happiness and fun adventures!

    25 years ago, one of my colleague in France met his wife with the help of a brick and mortar "agency". He was so ashamed of it, it was a big secret and they told almost nobody around them about "the truth". They were so ashamed of it!! I'm glad times change and people can boarder their horizons and meet people other then at work or at the club (at that time 75% of people met that way!). Ann I'm glad you shared your story, seems today many people meet online and are very happy! so why not!

    At the end I think age doesn't make a huge difference. What's important is how old he is in his heart/mind and if you get along so well you are probably in sync! when I was in Law School one of my friend met a man who was older than her father. It was love at first sight. I think he is 25 years older..not sure, but at least 20 years. She stopped Uni, her parents were really mad. They got married in like two months and they quickly had children. Well, they are still really happy! it's been more than 20 years! at some point ten years ago she went back to school to finish her degree, now she is back at work and he just retired recently so he has lots of time to take care of the youngest kid. Age difference is really not important (as far as everyone is over 18 indeed) and in my field I see many so unhappy people, it is really sad. Because we move so often, there's lots of divorces and sometimes after a divorce people just stay single. And I can tell they suffer.
    I'm glad you found your prince!

    Wow, I love all these romance stories. I have one that started in 1972, before the age of computers or Match.com. I met my husband of 42 years on the telephone, and not a cell phone either; the old fashioned phones that we actually back in the day! I was calling someone and lo and behold his roommate at the time answered, said I had a wrong number, my husband pulled the phone from him and we talked for 4 hours that night. He gave his number as he was new in the area just getting out of the Air Force, and I called the next night. We talked for so long on the phone that we both fell asleep with the phone to our ears. I agreed to meet him after one week of talking on the phone and getting to know each other. I picked him up in my candy apple red Firebird car, he was standing outside with multi-colored bell bottom pants, a long pony tail, and a smile to kill. I knew I was a goner. It was 1972 and I was overweight and not the most confident woman. However, he got into my car and couldn't keep his hands off me and made me feel like the most desirable person ever. We took a ride, went back to his house, and I spent the night on his unheated water bed WOW!!! 42 years later and we're still having fun and enjoying each other's company. He says it was love at first sight for him and that he already knew I was the one before even meeting me from our conversations.
    This proves love happens in all kind of strange ways! Happiness to all

    Anne and I met almost twenty years ago. We were setup on a blind date after a failed setup a few months before. I was dating another girl at the time when a friend on my bowling league said she had the perfect person for me. A few months later after we had split up and I spent a couple of months on my own asked my friend if her friend was still available. She called me a day later and left the most rambling message on my answering machine. I called her back and we talked naturally for almost four hours after her kids went to bed. I had to wake up at 2 am to go work.

    After our date, she went to work and our mutual friend asked how it went. Her answer, not joking, was that I was to nice and she probably would not go out with me again. I opened her door, listened to her and gave my undivided attention-there was clearly something wrong with me. LOL. She has put up with me ever since.

    I did the dating match company before that and was setup with the most unmatchable people. I was 6'3" back then; one match was not exaggerating was 4'10". One was a vegetarian which was fine but she was the most negative person I had ever met. I tried to respect her lifestyle and ordered a Caesar salad and her response was at least there is nothing dead on there. And the final one was in AF and was looking for her ticket out since she was being let go because she could not pass the test to rise in rank. Literally on our second date, she was talking about getting married.

    I've had friends who've met their gf/bf through online games so I believe in online love. The big downside it's that some people are living far away and long-distance relationships are hard to invest in. Hopefully, there are people like you who are living proof that everything is possible. Unfortunately, a lot of people are cheating when they are in a long-distance relationship. Relationship After Cheating is a tough pill to swallow. If you are asking me, the relationship is over is somebody cheats
