    This has come just in time seeing as there has recently been a huge influx of 'I love a TSR member' threads on here.

    I've never found love online. I've liked someone but not found love.

    I met Blackacre on TSR - we were both Section Leaders at the time. Fast forward 18 months and we're living together

    There have been several marriages (and even a couple of babies) of TSR moderators and many more long term relationships... a surprisingly high success rate for something that was never a dating thing!

    I had an online GF on runescape but sold her to some guy in return for a free gold trim

    I met my current partner online over a year ago after we very briefly met at an interview, he found me on Facebook and since then we have been together over 10 months and we live together and we also study at the same uni, I think that as long as you're being safe and you know who you really are talking to online then go for it! just make sure you're actually going to be together in person some day!

    I met both of my ex-partners on online forums. Both relationships lasted around two years and both were long-distance but we visited each other frequently.

    i think to be safe online you need to meet up with the person and you need to have a clear plan for the future otherwise you or the other partner may get bored and start lying/hurting feelings etc

    Congratulations

    If it wasn't for all of you, Zarga would never have confessed his love for you and ZargaWorld would never have happened!

    Definitely agree. When we started out we were long distance (2 hours by train) and we saw each other every other weekend, and we worked out a clear plan (and timescale) for us moving in together (about a year after we first got together, which fitted in with jobs, housing etc.)

    I don't think it would have worked had that not been the case. Chatting online is nice, but there's substitute for actually seeing each other, and IMHO relationships can't function on a permanently long distance basis.
