*Smiles* My new mate and I wouldn't have met if it wasn't for furry and the Internet.  Dawn (RL name) moved to the DC area and was looking to meet new people.  She posted a message to the Northern Virginia Furry Yahoo group asking if people would want to get together to see the new Lord of the Rings movie that was opening.

It ended up that everyone who was going to go dropped out of seeing the movie except her, me and the person I was with at the time.

Some of you may have met Dawn online.  One of her characters was Doris, the creator and owner of the now defunct Tavern on Taps.  She has also gone by Alura as well and has some furry writings on the net under that name.

*Purrs happily* If it wasn't for the Internet, we would never have met and I wouldn't have my wonderful kitty to hold in my arms.

Met my mate (now wife) a decade ago at a ConFurence. '<img'>

I first saw her in fursuit and did not know what she looked like.  Her fursonality in suit was warm and clever.  That evening we flirted, both in suit, so she was not aware of what I looked like.  It was only later that we actually saw each other sans fur.

I was living in California too when I met WS, who lived in Ohio. I moved to live here with him 3 years ago and we have been happy ever since!

Does anyone have any tips on keeping up a long-distance relationship? Me and my mate have been running into a lot of frustrating things with it (IE: His mom thinks I'm a pedophile, my mom thinks the same, I can't call him, and his internet is getting shut off). Rei Mobutu and I will be very happy for some tips ^_^

My fiance and I met 8 years ago when chatropolis wasn't adult and when I first was coming into my furryness (He's not a furry, but he doesn't mind me enjoying it). We flirted for years and finally, we fessed up that we were in love with eachother. We dated online for about 6 months back in 2001 and met in June 2001 (he met me, his sister got married and his mom passed away all the same week). By Feb of 2002, we were living together and now we're getting married July 16th of next year. No one thought we would make it. Everyone called it puppy love. I believe if you meet the right person, it'll work out somehow. You just have to have faith and reach for your dreams. I get to go get my ring today!!!

-EDIT- Oh, I forgot. My teacher told me this once when I was in high school. It applies to every relationship you will ever have. "Understanding, not demanding."

Hmm... do you talk on the phone at all to them? That can always seem... better than just online talk.

Yes, we have talked on the phone, but now his mom thinks I'm some kind of creepy internet pedophile (which is exactly what my mom thinks of him), so I can't call him now.

You could always try snail mail. In fact, the thought is kind of sweet, if you make the letters long, heartfelt, and worthwhile.

Erghh... that really sucks. When I first started talking to people from the internet, on the phone... my parents were NOT happy about it either. Maybe sooner or later your parents will be ok with it...?

I'm very pleased to announce that I found my new mate through the Internet, just like Kada-Ru and WS.  I posted an ad on pounced.org, and a little over a month ago, it was hit by a sweet wolf furry female from Western Virginia, living not too far from me.

We hit if off, online, then on the phone, then we had our first date, yesterday.  What a wonderful she-woofie.  She's 35, working in sales for a small software company in Scottsville, VA with brown hair and big green eyes.  *sighs*  I can't wait to see her again, and I really believe our relationship will build into something permanent and lovely.  *crosses fingers*

Wow... reading all of these things others have said makes it sound like it isnt so... impossible to have online relationships, turn out good.
Nothing but bad experiences from online relationships, here, so far. Although... the relationship... things I've had so far have been online. Met one person twice in real life... but could hardly stand him. I dont like being around people too much, but having someone constantly trying to touch me, even when they know I hate it, and I've told them to stop... I get... very uncomfortable...

Hoho... I shall not rant here about it all...

I'm currently talking with a fur on IRC about meeting irl.  But we're not going to jump into a relationship online until we actually meet.  We do like each other alot though from what we've seen of each other online, and we've swapped a few rl photos of each other as well.  Well, I've sent him more than a few. '<img'>  But we've both been hurt by ppl we've met online, him alot more than me I think, although I've had my share of dissapointments.

Well, the way I see it (or saw it) is that it's just as risky as someone going to a bar and having someone coming to you, starting a conversation and either trying to pick you up or just wanted to get to know you better.

The only thing is, with me, is that I don't drink, so I always stayed VERY clear from bars and clubs.  Those places make me very uncomfortable, and besides, there's not too many guys around that would want to pick up on a fat girl ;)

Meeting my husband online was just by chance and with some luck (one of my other online friends was actually playing match maker with us) ;)  But I still consider it a risk/chance to take.  It could've gone the other direction for us, for all we knew.  We were just lucky that we seemed to click together :)

Plus, I got to know him from the comfort of my own home too.  We talked alot before we decided to meet in person (plus, he's American and I'm Canadian). It took me a while to tell my mom that he was coming to see me, because she's only heard bad things about guys and girls meeting up with each other, but she actually was very supportive which made me think "Who are you and what did you do with my mom?!?"  :D   The one thing that I love about him is that he didn't care what I looked like...that's a big thing for me, coming from a place where people won't turn an eye on you unless you're skinny and drop-dead model gorgeous...We both knew how our hearts were and didn't care about appearances (although, I still thought he was very handsome) ;)

I've known a few people to have met their mates on the net and have gone on to get married and all that stuff...So it's definately not impossible ;)

Bah.  Tetra and I have been dating so long that I've forgotten what it's like to even look at another guy...

We met each other on the bus when I was in 8th grade and he was in 7th.  We both had an interest in star wars, sci-fi, etc.  So we quickly became friends.  We were best friends for a few years before we started dating.  I think at that time, I was a Sophomore in HS... and he was a Freshman.  And yeah, we've been together since then... about 6 years... I dunno, I've lost track of how long it's been.

But I was the one who asked him to date me... he was too shy to do it himself.  He was also too shy to even kiss me, so even after we started dating, we went a few weeks without even kissing.  We're kinda the odd couple, though.  He's more scientific minded, and I'm more creative minded.  It gets a bit annoying at times.

But yeah, we still do a lot together.  Our favorite past time as of late is playing Star Wars Galaxies together.  We've still retained that love of sci fi.  And though he's not a "true furry" himself, he greatly respects them and even has a few furry characters of his own... and sometimes even finds the lady furs to be very sexy.

Yeah... I've seen it a few times, too... but things do always seem to be so much harder online. I think it would also be a lot more easy to lie about things online, as well. I learnt that the hard way ._.

But... yeah. I have seen relationships online turn out good, occasionally. I guess it pays to just not give up hope...

Actually, I didn't meet my mate thru the furry boards (she's decidedly non-fur, but IS fur-friendly which is great) but thru an online dating site - I was just about giving up and the day before I was going to let my subscription lapse, I saw her personal and felt like I had gotten a massive whack in the head, like "HEY THIS IS IT!"; I responded, and the rest is history. We've been together for 2 years the end of August, and are engaged, likely Handfasting date set for after her graduation from College in 2006-2007. Very happy hawk here!

I had gone thru lots of failed online romances and attempted RL dates from meeting someone online, but this time it worked out like a dream! So add another good outcome to the stack...  '<img'>

I just found a mate.  Well, I didn't JUST find her, heh, we had been friends for a little while.  But right now I can only see her online and probably talk on the phone, though we haven't yet (talked on the phone, that is).  It'll probably be a few years until I get to actually see her in person, but I'm willing to wait if she is.

You're right. it does.  We'll see how things go.  I've gone alot longer without anyone special in my life, though. '<img'>  Maybe she won't want to wait that long.  Or maybe I'll get to see her sooner. '<img'>

Well, it didn't work out.  Back to my regularly scheduled lonliness...

But at least we're still friends.

I realized that the online mate thing isn't what I wanted.  I think it's much more "realistic" (for me, anyway, I can only speak for myself, here) to just be friends online and "go after" ppl that I actually have a chance of seeing anytime soon irl.

It's actually a philosophy I have been trying to stick to all along, but I guess I kinda let myself get "carried away" for a short while.  Everyone wants to be in love, and I just let my lonliness get the best of me.
