Love Is A Wonderful Thing

I am very happy to say that I love my husband. We met through an on-line dating site. He was a member of one site and I was a member of another one. Both sites were in a larger network and it allowed us to correspond. I am always telling him that he's the best $50 I ever spent because the membership was $49.95.
Having said all of that let me get down to brass tacks. I consider all my friends here on DC a part of my extended family. When someone has a problem I feel for them. When someone has a success I am happy for them. When two of my friends fall in love I am absolutely overjoyed. I love hearing about it. It is a wonderful thing when two people find love together. It makes life better when we have a companion in life. It makes the good times so much better and it makes the rough spots a little easier to handle. To me it's the same as posting about the rest of your family. People talk about their children, parents, siblings, dogs, cats, birds and fish. It's what friends and family talk about..

Hello there, MrsCDogg,

So, another online dating success! Congratulations!

I feel the same as you do. This is an incredible place. A whole big group of friends -- with new friends constantly coming onboard -- who are always around. That's real support!

Thank you for posting this as I suspect this has something to do with VLady and myself and the dustup with Iron Ore we had been having about my supposedly fake love life. Thanks for you support!

Here, here! I agree. We are far more than a disease. I talk about my family here all the time. And I agree, hearing good news is always a breath of fresh air.

Also, here's to successful online hook ups! My hubby and I met online as well. But he was FREE. LOL

Thanks for sharing your experience and your position. Love so enriches our lives. It brought to mind one of my favorite sonnets by Edna St Vincent Millay:
Love is not all: it is not meat nor drink
Nor slumber nor a roof against the rain;
Nor yet a floating spar to men that sink
And rise and sink and rise and sink again;
Love can not fill the thickened lung with breath,
Nor clean the blood, nor set the fractured bone;
Yet many a man is making friends with death
Even as I speak, for lack of love alone.
It well may be that in a difficult hour,
Pinned down by pain and moaning for release,
Or nagged by want past resolution's power,
I might be driven to sell your love for peace,
Or trade the memory of this night for food.
It well may be. I do not think I would.
