Just thought I'd share this with the class, I met my now husband on a Virtual World on the internet called Second Life, the BBC did a documentary about it....

YouTube - Virtual Adultery and Cyberspace Love (1/4) We are the second couple on it. We also got to meet Phil and Fern on This Morning. I so wish I'd have been slim although I was about ready to give birth when we were on :)
YouTube - Nik and Kira Interview (Part 1)

I know loads of people who met online - now it is quite common quite a few people are 'coming out the woodwork'! My MIL even tried to find someone new after her and FIL split!

The internet is an amazing way to meet someone and I am so glad that it has worked so well for you.
Congratulations!

Wow, what a brilliant thing to have done! It's a great story. Have you ever thought of telling it to a magazine? I'm a writer as my 'day job' so let me know if you'd be interested! ;)

Iv just watched the whole 4 segments, ..

It just makes you realise how delicate peoples lives are, how these online relationships can get so intence so fast, and change everything. Completely shift a familys dynamiques.


Don't get me wrong, i think its fab that you found the love of your life, and your clearly happy and its so very sweet.. & its lovley that so many people can find happiness this way..

but my heart goes out to that poor, poor man. His wife has no respect for him because he is standing by her, even though she couldn't be any more cold hearted if she tryed, she just see's him as weak. She could do anything, and he'd stand by her. She's sacrificed the relationship with her children, which is more important than anything, for the time she spends on there.. i think its apauling. I don't know how that man finds the inner strength to stay with her, if only he could dig deeper and realise what shes doing.. i really hope that one day she wakes up and realises the damage shes caused.. she needs to be on her own, away from everyone else to re-assess her life and what it is she needs, because clearly he is not providing it for her. #

i just want to slap her :O

Judge me if you will, but i can't help but feel that way!

Yeah its deffinatly two sides, its a shame they didnt document your's a bit more, as her story kinda dominated it, and if i'm honest, gives off a negative view of second life, rather than giving an equal view on both.. it's a shame really...

but her story is so shocking.. I really don't know what to say :eek: What a cow.. LOL

I remember seeing you on This Morning, and at the time felt, that during the rest of the show they were taking the piss out of you bit and during the interview!

I met my dh the old paper way! Advert in the lonely hearts! 17 years ago!
