Love at first

Love at first


We asked Advocate readers to share their true stories of Internet dating and found out that going online was a great way to meet the love of your life. That is, if he or she wasn't lying to you.

In May 1999, after a two-year stint in Minnesota, I had a strong feeling that I should return to my home state of Florida. Something said, Go back, and I landed in West Palm Beach, 20 minutes south of where I had left in 1997. My friend Chris kept telling me that she had met this gal that I really needed to meet. I just shrugged and said, "Sure." Many weeks went by. I had placed an ad online seeking other lesbian friends to hang out with. I got a response from this gal named Beth, and as I read the letter I thought, Wow, she sounds fun and interesting.

We set up a time to meet. She came to the place where I was working a second job, and we immediately hit it off. As we spoke I had to ask her if she knew a gal named Chris. She said no, but I had a nagging feeling. So I said, "Do you know [Chris's screen name]?" Beth said "Yes, I know her." I leaned back in my chair and said, "Holy shoot! You're her; you are the person she was so determined that I meet." Beth said the same thing back.

Beth and I have not been separated since. We were destined to meet, but before Chris had the chance to arrange it, we met through a personal ad online. We have now been together for six years, soon to be heading into our seventh. We have a wonderful family of three cats, a dog, and a bird. We own a home together in South Florida. There has been no drama, fights, or issues. Both of us know that, without a doubt, we were meant to be together--as friends and life partners.
