Back in the long ago, the dark and distant days BMM (Before Mrs. MediaBlog), I had a brief online relationship. We met in the CompuServe chat rooms (yeah, I'm that old), we chatted. At the time it seemed very serious despite the fact that we never met out here in the real world. In retrospect, I don't know how serious it actually was on either of our parts. We were friends, certainly, but I don't know that we ever really made a connection that could have gone beyond that. Maybe we did. At any rate, we never got together in person and, over time, we just sort of drifted apart. I don't really know where she is at this point.
Today, there are some great options if you are looking to meet someone online. One of the best options you will find is called FriendFinder. It will let you easily, quickly sort through all the options and find the right person for you. What I like best about the site is that their search functions make it very easy. Compared to some other sites that really make you jump through hoops, FriendFinder lets you get started almost as soon as you arrive at the site. Plus they have groups that bring you together with people who share similar interests. And, of course, they have a chat site where you can talk.
If you want to meet someone, start your search at FriendFinder.
