  1. Yes, I met my husband through a local chat board. I also met some very good friends I have known for 12 years. Those dating sites weren't really useful when we started dating and we had our friends with us all the time, so it made dating much easier. This October my husband and I will be together 10 years. It can happen if you find the right one. Good luck to Travis, he has to keep the faith.
