eohartman: (Livejournal got me laid)
[personal profile] eohartman
[Error: unknown template qotd]I did! Dustin ([livejournal.com profile] dustinhartman) and I met on LJ back in 2003. We had a common friend (Dan, whom neither of us had met IRL at that point). We commented back and forth in Dan's LJ, and then Dustin started commenting on my LJ. We friended each other, then started chatting online, then he called me on the phone. Three months after we met online, we met in person. Three and a half years after that, we got married!  We were featured in LJ's ten year anniversary book, Livejournal: The First Decade!

Not only did I meet my husband on LJ, but I've also met a lot of great friends through LJ.  I met many of them through [livejournal.com profile] loversfaraway, a community for people in long distance relationships (which D and I were in for the majority of the time we dated), and then later through [livejournal.com profile] weddingplans. I've met some of them in person ([livejournal.com profile] chasingangie05 and [livejournal.com profile] cynicalsiren came to my wedding, even!). [livejournal.com profile] thejoysofjess even hugged me the last time we saw each other, when we met up with [livejournal.com profile] noexplaination and her babies! I consider this a huge triumph, because apparently she is not a hugger. Even though many of the friends I met through LFA and WP are no longer in those communities, we still stay an active part of each other's lives.

I've also become part of two tight-knit groups of LJ women, HB and T&C. Both groups mean so much to me and I've formed fantastic friendships through these groups. We've blurred the lines between LJ friends and real friends - we send e-mails, texts, snail mail, and packages back and forth. I consider y'all some of my closest friends, and I really want to meet y'all in person! (Seriously, [livejournal.com profile] silsbycarr, you ARE coming out to visit next summer to help me with baby animals!)
