I created a profile on Largefriends in early 2005 and signed up for a gold membership in March. I used the service whereby a small greeting would be sent to all women in a 50 mile radius meeting my criteria. I was surprised when I got replies from all over the country (and none from my state). I started a couple of conversations with some nice people and discovered I had gone to school with an ex-husband. I also started chatting with a woman who had not made any choices in her profile, had no photo and her only description was "just an ordinary woman". Well, THAT was false adversising. I quickly discovered she and I were very compatible and we've been in touch every day since. I travelled 900km to meet her and we've been in love and lust ever since. Thank goodness for the internet and cheap airfares.
I expect marriage may well follow if we can actually arrange to live in the same city.
